After a mmc with my first pregnancy at 40 earlier this year, I would love to hear any success stories of any over 40s who have achieved a successful pregnancy! Xx

@Liissaa I have never been made to feel like I'm too old by any professionals in the nhs. In fact no one has batted an eyelid. That doctor is an arse wipe, please ignore

@Rubyroost from this second on, I absolutely will. Xx

I’m sat here breastfeeding my 11 week old, conceived at 40 and born at 41. Easy pregnancy and 6.5 hour natural birth. Only complication was gestational diabetes.

She’s perfect and we are so lucky. She’s first (and only) baby for DH and I. We conceived in less than a year of not properly trying (he was 45, now 46).

I'm 41 and currently 37 weeks pregnant. I've had a fairly normal pregnancy with no complications as of yet. They won't let me go over 40 weeks due to age & I have arthritis in my hips from a teenager so getting induced in 2 weeks! Even my doctors are super impressed with me & the uneventful pregnancy I've had

Forgot to add- my pregnancy was totally unexpected and uneventful- so much so it only got picked up on a scan for something else, at 31 weeks!

I had my first at 40 and just got my second BFP today at 43. I know I have a long road ahead but i had a great pregnancy first time round so I'm keeping everything crossed.

Hi OP. I'm currently subletting a flat from a family. The mum is 44 and has two beautiful, sweet healthy children aged 1 and 3.
