I hear yah. Mine is finally coming up on Monday... It's been the longest 3 weeks since scheduling it. Can't wait.

Can't help but worry so much this time around. I think it's related to my age. Thinking of doing the Harmony test. But then telling myself what if abnormalities are found? Will I just not keep the baby? Ughhh so much stress... I hope it's for nothing.

Happy humpday )

Yes! All around!! The beginning sucks. The nerves and all of that. Seeing the heartbeat is SUCH a big deal.

I plan to do the genetic testing. I think no matter what~ it will help me prepare for whatever may come my way. I'd rather know and have the ability to plan and research if need be. Knowledge is power in my book. I'm definitely nervous too bc of my age!

Hey Ladies, sorry I've abandoned you for the last few days, for some reason I've not been getting new post notifications, hmmmm

Sopho<<< Welcome & Congrats on #4 has it sunk in by now?

Holly<<< a journal sounds like a great idea, I've thought about it, but haven't started one.

So I've had my 1st scan on Monday and got to see ONE baby(Thank you Jesus) with a healthy heart beat Baby measured a couple of days ahead... Couldn't ask for more.

How are you ladies feeling? Any upcoming events?
xx

Hi to everyone!

I've been kind of quiet since the beginning of this thread, but wanted to stop in and say hello and welcome to everyone who's joining in! I can't remember now if I've given much about my details, so I'll do that (maybe again). I'm 39 and will be 40 in January, expecting my 1st, due May 26 or so. DW is 55, will be 56 in November, so we're definitely "older moms" and thrilled about it.

Foreign Chick - I'm with you on the sense of relief at having ONE baby in there. I was very concerned I might have two or even three and was very glad to learn there is just one. I think I asked the RE about 5 times if she was sure it was just one

Next big thing is my first appointment with Maternal-Fetal Medicine next Wednesday. It will be a meeting with the Nurse Practitioner, then an ultrasound. I'm hoping they can help me get my blood sugar under control. My Diabetes went nutso about the day I found out I was pregnant and it's been impossible to control since then. I expected to have issues (I was warned), but didn't expect it from practically day 1! So I'll be glad to get to the doctor who can actually help me with that in light of my pregnant "condition." I'm kind of hoping they will put me on an insulin pump so that I can stop stabbing myself multiple times a day and still keep my sugars in a normal range (oh yeah, and be able to eat a cracker every now and then).

How is everyone else doing?

Welcome CKelly congratulations on your pregnancy!!
I'm with you on fatigue and grumpiness .... Both are overwhelming atm. Do you think this is age related heheheh. For my family's sake I hope this eases soon.
Do you know babies gender yet?

Hiya Wicky, glad your scan went well and you only saw one baby, phew I know. Imagine the relief if you already had 3 hehehe. Fx for Wednesday, hope your NP can help you figure out how to betray manage you blood sugar xx Will be thinking of you, Good Luck.

Wishing you ladies a great weekend!
