I went to the doctor on Tuesday, and they confirmed that I am definitely pregnant. I'll be six weeks tomorrow, and 46 when I deliver.
I told my parents and my sister, but that'll be all for now. I miscarried last time, and had told everyone. My boyfriend seems to be a bit better about things. I think it'll change when I start to show.
Let me know how things are going for you... I think as soon as we stopped trying - I got pregnant!
I'll be 45 in March and am eight weeks pregnant with my first child. Exciting, isn't it? - KimSue
I am 45, and just found out I am pregnant (approx. 6 weeks). I too have an only, a vivacious, spunky 6 year old girl. I struggled for the past 6 years to have another because my delivery was horrendous.
Long story short, I developed eclampsia after the delivery (emergency c-section) and almost stroked 3 days later. My doctor was horrible, my husband can't even mention her name without using the word malpractice, but we won't go there.
Anyway you can only imagine the mental trauma I experienced. I went to seek professional help, while this did cure me for a while, I still longed for my child to have a sibling. She is such a nurturing little girl, and what an amazing big sister she would be.
I took the path that you are taking now, I decided to let fate take over. We enjoyed the usual once a week sex (sorry guys, this was all I could muster). But viola, it happened. I am so scared, my husband is not so happy, and I do feel a bit like a freak show, but it is not about me.
After what I went through, and with the best high risk doctors I can find, I can do this and we are going forward. I wish you all the best through your journey.
I'm one of nine, and my mom had her last one at 44. Love having lots of siblings, but that's my experience.
Here's an encouraging story too... My youngest sister is 7 also!! My stepmom is 50, and she and my dad were quite shocked to find themselves pregnant 7 years ago. They had a healthy pregnancy and birth!! Good luck with whatever your future holds!
