    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I am 41 yo and having my 3rd baby. My first will be 17 and my "baby" will be 14 when this one is born. We Stopped actively trying to get pregnant about 8 years ago, then Yesterday I got a BIG surprise from the Dr. Morning sickness is horrible, and I'll be 60 and my hubby 66 when this one graduates from high school. I don't feel too old now but talk to me in a year

    Imagine how my husband felt. He was married before and his kids are 28, 26, 24, 22 and his grandkids are 5, 21m and less than a year old. We have kids who are 4 and 2. Basically he was starting older. It's strange that his grandson is older than our kids.

    I am hoping to get pregnant at 47. My husband and I were surprised with a preganncy in July 11 but we misscarried at 7wks. Up until then we weren't sure we wanted to have a baby at this stage in our lives. After though I knew thats exactly what I want and now it seems unlikely.

    Congrats Hooahhuney!

    I think you're part of a growing number of women who are having kids in their 40s. I bet you'll do great!

    I know that now that I am in my 40s I feel like I am much more patient and laid back than I was when having my kids in my late 20s. Think about all the experience you bring to the table.

    I'd like to invite you to join our Pregnancy After 35 group to find others to share with on your journey!

    I hope you'll enjoy using our community to find friendship, get support and get expert answers as well!

    Take care,
    Olivia
