Is there anyone out there that has had a baby over 40? I am due in 3 weeks and I am very excited but also nervous. Any thoughts?

    • Well Congrats to you, well I had mine early. When I married my 1st hubby at 20 I told him I didn’t want to have kids after 25 we got busy my first came at 21 and my last at 24 lol. I hope it is a smooth and joyous transition for you I can’t say how it will be at your age, but enjoy motherhood if this is your first you didn’t say if it were or not, but at any age giving birth is a beautiful and blessed event.

    • I should also mention that I have two teenage girls from a pre vious marriage that I have custody of. They live with us half the time and seem to be adjusting to the idea of a new baby in the house. Do we in life somehow adjust accordingly no matter what or what? and will I?

    • Yes you’ll adjust, it’ll all come back to you and the girls will be a lot of help to you with the baby. Jaut remember to take sometime for you because it may get a little stressful with you having this baby at this stage in your life. Try to prepare yourself mentally as well as physically it should all be fine.

    • my brother was married to his x wife for 17 years.. they never had children ( she was a nut case ).  

      my brothers 2nd wife has given him 2 beautiful children, Seth at the age of 42, and Meghen at the age of 44.. of coarse his wife is younger, however, my brother is a great dad, and is just AWSOME with them..

      Congratulations to you! you will do fine! it will all come back to you!

    • I wish you the best. I had my kids in my 20’s - 23 and 26. After my daughter I had my tubes tied the very next day. Britt was born 7/31, the tubes were tied 8/1. I had made up my mind that I was having no more babies.  

      Some asked suppose something happens and you get married again, my response was - oh well. I hated being pregnant. I loved the babies.

      With both preganancies I had an awful time and I just could not do it again.

      Again, I wish you the best and God bless you.

    • Best of luck....more power to ya....and I’m glad it’s you and not me.  Not trying to be ugly but I just don’t think I could do it again.  

      Even if I did...it’s not possible.  I had mine young..had hysterectomy at age 33...I think you just know when you don’t want anymore no matter what happens in your life.  

      I will look forward to grandchildren when that time comes...but my boys don’t even have girlfriends....so I’m happy to wait.
