For anyone who remembers me from this thread - we've got a BFP last week. Very nervous, but secretly thrilled. Sickness is just kicking in, which is a good thing so I'm told and feeling quite tired, other than that on cloud 9!
Early days still but wanted to share my news. Baby due end of April 05.
Aw, thanks everyone. Aloha, I'm 38 and will be 2 months shy of 39 when baby arrives. Don't feel it though, although ask me in a few months time when I'm getting bigger and running around after dd! It's funny too, the pregnancy has had the effect of dh starting a regular exercise routine 'to get fit for when the baby comes' - he's even giving up alcohol for me so I don't miss my wine!
Have only told my parents and my bf this time around, and my friends here, of course. You may remember I miscarried Dec '04 and I had told ALL my family and friends. It was hell having to tell everyone the news. We have decided this time to wait until at least 12 weeks, maybe longer. We will be doing the same as we did when I had dd at 35, going to Barts Hospital in London for the 'Integrated' blood test at 12 and 16 weeks. Unfortunately, my local health authority only offer the double test still, which is not great if you are an 'older' mum wanting to make informed choices. Anyway, that's jumping ahead a bit, I keep having to remind myself to take things one step at a time.
no worries Aloha, I dont expect everyone to know my history. She is pretty textbook it would seem (fingers crossed) after a very shaky start with the old bf. Do you think it has something to do with being an old duffer??!!
