My hubby and I are expecting our sixth, and we are ages 48 and 43 (respectively). This pregnancy was unplanned on our parts, and we are definitely concerned because of our ages. I'm about 2 1/2 months now. I'd love to hear any stories and words of wisdom.

I was considered and "older" mom at 40. You will be considered high risk mainly due to your age. You will be closely watched and you will probably have more tests available to you.

Hi there, you are lucky to be pregnant again even at that age. Because I know some women that age that are still trying and they are unlucky. I also wanted to share with you a site that could help you calculate your due date and more which is just for free, God Bless. http://www.babyduedatecalculator.net/
