43 and pregnant for the first time. 9 weeks...

Hello all ye 35s and overs!

It's a great feeling knowing there are many here in this section. I conceived naturally, after trying for about a year on and off. I think I willed this one into being for it certainly is a miracle.

Looking forward to a healthy pregnancy and doing all i can do to give birth to a healthy baby.

Would love to know if there are any other people in their 40s who are pregnant.

Wishing everyone the best,

Hello! Congratulations! I'm 43 but had to MC and am trying again . Hopefully this cycle. It looks like another 43 year old just gave birth on a different thread. Sticky dust! There are 3- 44 year olds that are pregnant...

I'll be 43 in a few weeks - this is a surprise second pregnancy (the medical world told us it was impossible to conceive naturally, and our first was conceived using IVF!) We are completely delighted to have our world turned upside down, but I never imagined myself to be in this position again!

I was 40 when I was first pregnant, and it was one of the healthiest times of my life. I absolutely loved being pregnant! My body behaved perfectly until it was time to have the baby, when it became uncooperative and I ended up with an EMCS!

I'm 10 weeks now, and apart from a bit of spotting every day or so, the pregnancy is progressing nicely.

Older mums are the best!!!

Me too! I turned 40 in June, & our first previous miracle is due on 14th January.

DH & I had been trying for 2 years since we got married in April 09, we had 4 cycles of Clomid resulting in 3 pregnancies, the first 2 I lost at between 5 & 5.5wks.

So far all is going well & I can't wait for my 20wk scan on 31st August....
