Hi, I'm 45, two children 18 and 20 and with new partner of 2 years (also early 50's and no kids)!
We honestly thought my baby making days were probably over (my age and ectopic pregnancy many years ago). So, unexpectedly, here I sit 21 weeks, very bumpful and healthy.
I was initially devastated, very scared of the increased risk of problems and felt irresponsible getting pregnant at my age. Midwives, friends and family have been so supportive - treating me normally....because that's what I am!
Only extra thing we have done is have the neucrofold scan at 13 weeks - all was fine. The stats tell us there are more risks at 45+, but they also say you still have much more chance of all being OK than not.
