36.5 years old and pregnant with second baby


Hi all! I just wanted to pop in and say hello. My rainbow baby is just about a week shy of 19 months and I just found out last Sunday that we are expecting again. For having had a miscarriage at 9w2d back in December of 2014, I find I'm strangely optimistic this pregnancy. It's taken me aback. I get frightened/anxious (but also excited) about my first midwife appointment in a few weeks. Hoping for a beautifully viability scan... eeeks!

Anyway, I'd love to connect to other moms 35 and older.

Happy and healthy pregnancies to all!

Just turned 37 and almost 16 weeks pregnant with my second . I don't feel any different to my last pregnancy almost 5 years ago (time flies!) except that I am showing earlier this time.

I'm also 36.5 (37 in Nov) and just found out I'm pregnant with my second - due May 2018. My son will be turning 6 next month so a fairly large age gap. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

Hi Ladies!! I would love to be apart of this group! I am 35 will be 36 in February. I am pregnant with #2. My doctor had me do the Harmony test since I am 35 and we found out we are having a girl! I have a son that was born Nov 14'. I am currently 14 weeks. So happy to have some friends in the same place!

It is a blood test that tests for genetic abnormalities. I am in the US don't know where everyone else is from. I live in Houston, TX. We just had a horrible hurricane come through.

Thanks, yes just googled and saw what it is. I'm in South Africa. It seems they do offer it here but the bloods then get sent to US for analysis so the cost is extremely high

Ah! So nice to have a group with mothers my age! Congratulations to all of you on your pregnancies. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Trumpet- I hope you and your family are okay! I cannot imagine what you're all going through there. My heart goes out to you.

Hi! I'm 37 and due with #2 in January (planned C section for medical reasons). We think this is a second girl, but we'll find out for sure in a couple of weeks. I have some complications, but nothing too bad, although I am definitely finding this pregnancy harder in general than my first. I had no morning sickness with DD, this time I had a few weeks of it (gone now thankfully), but I'm finding the tiredness and the aches and pains are a lot worse. I've used quite a few sick days when I've just needed some time to rest up. Some of it's probably due to the fact that my DD is a very energetic and determined 2yr old. But we're stopping after this one, we decided long ago that 2 kids was right for us, and I'll be very happy not to go through another pregnancy after this is done.

Good luck to everybody!
