I'm 44 on September 6th and found out last Wednesday that I'm pregnant with my first baby. Baby is due May 3/07 according to internet.
First Doctor's appointment is on September 20th. I'm a little afraid due to all the statistics, but I believe God gave us this blessing and I'm going to stay positive.
I was glad to find a place for my age to post where God is glorified. Hubby and I got married last year. He has a 19 year old daughter having her first baby in December!
This is my first marriage and first pregnancy.
