Congratulations grin

Don't worry about age at all! My mum had a 19yo, 10yo and gave birth to twins at 35 grin

Pregnancy is a shock even if your expecting it I reckon so just chill and enjoy!

Of course it's going to be ok. Pregnancy is a shock to the system but your going to be fine! I'm 35 no 2 due in the summer, ds is 5. Apart from sickness, no energy and aches and pains this pregnancy has been normal.

Congratulations.

I can'r sleep, so thought I would post.

I last had a period on 5th Dec and have 22 day cycles. For some reason I didn't really notice until yesterday that I was late. Bought a test today, and it was a very clear positive.

I am terrified. I am 33 (nearly 34) and have two children already (9 and 7). I am really worried that I am pushing my luck, and that this time, things cannot go so swimmingly. Am also pining for the loss of the freedom I'd just got back into my life.

I always really wanted more children, so am thrilled on some levels, but mainly just shocked at the moment. Please tell me everything will be OK?
