I am pregnant at 48, just 3 months shy of 49. This baby is due the day before my 27 year old daughter's birthday. I have two other children ages 25 & 16.
I asked a doctor five years ago for a tubal ligation and he said I had less than 1% chance of getting pregnant then. Being a little doubtful of his advice, I continued birth control until only a few months ago, thinking if it was that slim five years ago, it must be none by now. WRONG!!
Now I find myself planning a nursery instead of retirement. I had hoped to be a young grandmother, not an old mother, but God sends us blessings and I am trying to accept this must be one of them. I still have almost 7 months to get used to the idea.
