    Hey :) I'm feeling really sick. I've lost weight and I don't want to eat anything! I had ms with my son but not this extreme, or maybe I have a selective memory lol :lol:
    How far along are you? X

    Not exactly like yours as I'd never had kids, but I had my daughter when I was 46. She was my surprise blessing! In other words, I wasn't on any fertility meds and had given up on ever having a baby. The only issue I had, which wasn't bad, was my water broke at 35w1d and I had her the next. So she was almost 5 weeks early, but healthy, just a bit jaundiced. Good luck and congratulations!

    Not my success story but I have a friend who has had a rainbow baby last year at just before 45 y old and it was her 3rd csection. The previous one was 3 years ago in 2015 and her first in 2012. She did say it was a harder recovery but she is doing fine now. Good luck to you!

    ETA I should add that all hers were emergency csections in varying degrees of urgency.
