Just joining in myself at 44 and just over 16 weeks. I know I am not eating as well as I could be nor exercising as much as I should.

This looks like a great site to give me some structure and motivation.

I just told my family recently (except my sister who has known for a while). They are all happy for us (my first, my husband’s third) - I am sure a bit worried - but so far all looks good.

Have not yet told the rest of the world - am hoping to get the all clear from my amnio within the next few days, and then I'll start telling people.

Good luck and healthy pregnancies to all of you.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
