    Hello all, I'm 8 weeks pregnant with my 3rd, bit of a surprise as we weren't trying or preventing and this month we were not even doing it ‍♀️

    I have two girls, 5 and 3, and I wasnt really sick with my first at all, with my second I had evening nausea. This time around I have all day exhaustion and nausea...

    I'm feeling a little low because of this, I'm finding it hard to connect with my other kids, and I'm so despondent about Xmas and vaguely worried about the future when I should be thrilled and feeling blessed. But I keep thinking "what the hell are you doing all this again aged 39".

    I think I need to connect with others who are pregnant and older so I don't feel so alone.

    Hey there. I can relate. I'm 39 and 21 weeks pregnant with # 4. I have a 17 year old, a 6 year old and a 3 year old. Being pregnant at our age and having young kids is exhausting! I felt similarly during my 1st trimester as well. I did not have morning sickness so much but was so very tired all the time. I didn't have energy or motivation to do anything! It's gotten a bit better now but I still have my days where I just hang out on the couch watching tv and napping. Hang in there!

    I can relate. Also 39 but expecting #6. Wasn't planning this and even though I know my husband will think it's cool, I haven't told him. Not a great time to be having babies. But God does know what He's doing.
