I'm not an official mommy yet, but I will be seeing my OB today to decide if we are going to induce or not.
I'm not in my 40's, I'm 50 years old. This is the first child for both my husband and myself.
I don't feel much of a connection with a lot of younger moms, so I don't post that much any where.
So hopefully you all won't mind an old lady like me joining in. I didn't know about this group before and it would really be nice to with a bunch of ladies that are even close to my age

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Grade A Baby Eggs; An In-fertility Memoir
-- Victoria Hopewell was a forty-something divorced clinical psychologist when she met and married a longtime bachelor whose ninety-year-old parents were anxiously waiting for a grandchild.
Problem was, even though Victoria had two young daughters from a previous marriage, her intense desire to create a baby with her new husband was thwarted by her own body.
Her eggs were aging faster than her healthy hormones and youthful appearance would suppose. Desperate to bear a child, willing to undergo every procedure from Lupron shots through egg harvesting and in vitro fertilization (IVF), she is blocked at every corner of medical protocol from achieving her dream of a successful pregnancy.
Finally she journeys toward acceptance of using a donor egg, much to the dismay of her growing daughters. But no eggs are available, and she is placed on a lengthy hospital wait-list. Victoria and her husband then embark on a surrealistic egg hunt to find their own donor.
Follow her insider's account of the hidden world of egg donation-where women's eggs are bought and sold over the internet and a beautiful model with high SATs and a prior successful donation commands the highest prices.
