We are so very excited to be pregnant! We are scared to death but absolutely joyful that we were finally able to conceive. He is 42, I am 39. I will still be 39 at the time of delivery. My doctor examined me beforehand and told me she thought I was healthy enough to get pregnant despite the fact that I have atypical cells on my pap which they are monitoring. I am eating healthy, drinking lots of water and walking. I'm completelly exhausted... I am so worried about losing my little jellybean. The doctor doesn't want to see me for two more weeks. I am not having any nausea with this pregnancy which is very concerning to me. I had severe nausea with my first two (who are now ages 9 & 13). I had a blighted ovum between my two children and had to have an emergency D&C. I just need to know everything is going to be okay... I wish they'd check my hormone levels to make sure they are climbing appropriately. How do I stop stressing and enjoy this?
