Well, I wanted to all you ladies in this forum first, that I had my baby at the "advanced maternal age" of 44, now commonly referred to as a "geriatric pregnancy"!
He was born on Saturday and is now 5 days old. He has had lots of tests and does not show any signs of any serious problems. He was born at 37 weeks due to BP issues that I was having. He is having a bit of blood sugar and feeding issues, but is otherwise very healthy! He has lost just over a pound, but was a large boy to start!
I did have a c-section and it has been and was a rough one. The recovery is going very slowly. I do think it was a bit smoother when I had my first son at 36. I do have some healthy issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disorder and I'm overweight, so some of you ladies that are over 35 or over 40 but in excellent health will probably do much better.
It was a rough pregnancy, but my son is beautiful and it fills my eyes with tears to look at him sometimes! We had 3 miscarriages in 2 years to get here and I feel very blessed and fortunate to have him.
I am not going to sit around thinking about what age I will be he is certain ages; I'm going to spend every day enjoying him and make my health my number one focus right now so I can have as many years ahead as possible to enjoy my kids!
Best wishes to everyone still waiting for their special deliveries! I am not that computer literate, and will post a photo and "official" story later. I wanted to let you guys know first, because I know the fears some of you are going through!
