Wooohhoooooo!

Thought it was time, after all i HAVE made it through 22 weeks of my mad loony journey!

Ok, so this pregnancy lark, not one to complain as you all know me, BUT its not fun is it.
I am GRATEFUL beyond words for the absolutel miracle that is this baby, but ooh eck, tis hard going for an old lady in bad shape! grin

Ive been called an oompa loompa, a weeble, a walking wardrobe and worse at work!
Good job i have a sense of humour, although i would rather be warned of impending laughter as my pelvic floors are loooooooose!

Holy mother of crap thread, can now be mothballed as i am here..on pregnancy, i have made that step away from the miscarriage/loss board! grinsmile

Ah, I remember your original thread, fair brought a tear it did. So glad you are enjoying pregnancy! Hope the next 18 weeks months are kind on you.

Congratulations smile.

I know nothing about you, but as a geriatric mother myself I just wanted to wish you well.

The pregnancy is the easy bit <runs away>

Dogwood...sigh,

sigh
sigh

just....sigh..

I keep having midnight panics about the whole thing.
Things have switched from OMG i am actually pregnant with a real live actual human baby, to oh shit oh shit...i remember the first 4 years..and it aint pretty! grin

Pregnanc has NO way been easy, mentally i have come down off the cieling, but pyhsically..at 42 years old, im buggered..but SO happy grin

newtonupontheheath Mon 01-Oct-12 10:01:08

Congratulations!

I remember your first thread... It made me cry like a baby brought years to my eyes!

So happy for you smile

Congrats, my best friend had her DS just shy of her 43 birthday after a miscarriage and all sorts of other crap in her life.

DH and DSIL were also born either side of their Mum's 40th and they certainly kept DMIL fit.
So here's to older Mother's, and their lovely DCs.

smile

I'm nearly 40 and falling to pieces too. I understand. I moan a LOT grin

Someone kindly told me the other day that I am now walking like a duck, when viewed from behind. I know. It's because my legs don't work any more.

26 weeks here, lady we are on the home strait smile

nananaps Mon 01-Oct-12 10:36:30

wooohoo for the home strait, i cant wait to meet this miracle of miracles, cant wait!! gringringrin

WheresMyCow Mon 08-Oct-12 16:14:21

Yippee, I've found you. Have kept checking the old thread for updates every day but was starting to get a bit worried.

So how are things going...how many weeks are you now?

gringringrin

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Where'sMyCow.

Hi nananaps glad to see you. Have you hit melon size now do you reckon?

I think midnight panics are normal when you think what you've been through to get to this point.

Squeeee for 22 weeks!!! grin

nananaps Mon 08-Oct-12 16:35:25

Hellooooo! Im here and im fat n fine!

24 weeks approaching which means 3rd trimester i believe!!

There is much rummaging and kicking within my abdomen, complete with hicupps and whole body flips...its ace!

Still going well and now i am so relaxed and happy i dont recognise myself.

Nowadays, partial to double deckers and twix bars...although got a glucose tolerance bastard test next week, so going to have to slow down with the chocolate treats if i am going to pass that bugger!

Ahhhh thanks for sticking with me girls, you are lovely xxxxxxxxxx

5madthings Mon 08-Oct-12 16:35:35

Yay i have found you! So glad all is well. Hope you are managing to rest. Hiw are dh and ds? Getting excited?!

So so lovely following your journey smile

ecuse Mon 08-Oct-12 16:59:49

Oh phew here you are. Had been looking for updates and was a bit worried the old thread had gone quiet. Congratulations at getting to 24 weeks and fat. How lovely! Make sure you take it easy.

Amnewtoallthis Mon 08-Oct-12 17:16:09

Jokat Mon 08-Oct-12 21:27:22

I also started worrying, thank god you are well! Sooooo happy for you grin

BikeShed Tue 09-Oct-12 09:17:28

Another one from your old thread who was getting quite worried but HURRAY!!! you're on the pregnancy bit now smile, so glad everything is going well!!

One of the benefits of being a geriatric mummy is that people think you're younger than you actually are ("She's pregnant/has just had a baby, so she MUST be under 40") grin. (Little do they know that physically you feel near retirement age ...)

Many thanks for the link wheresmycow!

rogersmellyonthetelly Tue 09-Oct-12 11:32:35

Well I'm 37 but high mileage, so my body is also well and truly knackered and I'm really feeling the strain! 22 weeks and already looking online for a pelvis support thingy as mine is coming apart front and back and it hurts!

ajandjjmum Tue 09-Oct-12 13:51:35

So glad to have found this thread! Glad all is well nananaps - even if it's knackering in the process! grin

bitbewildered Thu 11-Oct-12 00:33:46

Another one who's glad to have found you! Thanks for the link wheresmycow.

Third trimester! Woo hoo!

drjohnsonscat Thu 11-Oct-12 17:19:18
