Thanks, everyone!! I am so excited to have a lodge!!
My name is Lisa, I live in the Boston area and just turned 42 in April. I have been married for over 4 years to my husband Jeff who is about to turn 40. I am really lucky to have such a wonderful DH. We met in 1999 through mutual friends but didn't start dating until the next year. We went out for a few years, got engaged in 2002 and married in 2004.
We really were committed to enjoying married life for a few years before trying for kids. Then we had some stuff come up that made us put it off a bit longer (long distance weddings, etc) before we started trying last year. Luckily my "older" body cooperated with this plan and on 1/6/08 we were taking this picture;
We were absolutely ecstatic! There is a little bit of worry with being an older mom - health issues and also wondering if it will strange for us (or our child) to be older parents. But my grandparents were in their mid-40s when they had my mom and my grandmother always swore it kept her so young and active.
Here is our 8 week ultrasound:
Pretty much immediately we started calling the baby "the Gumdrop".
Here is Gumdrop's 12 week ultrasound...
This was the best one:
We found out on 4/4/08 that the Gumdrop is a "she"! DH was particularly excited as he was not-so-secretly rooting for a girl. He was always really close with his little sister and loved growing up with her so is excited to bring up a daughter.
Here is 18 weeks:
Here are a few more... we love to travel so in March 2008 we took a "babymoon" to the Grand Canyon. One last trip just the two of us before baby! We are excited to take her on trips too.
I have been so incredibly lucky to have had a very uneventful, fun, healthy and happy pregnancy. I am so glad we have enjoyed it because we probably won't have another child at my age - I know never say never but we'd probably adopt first. DH in particular thinks that if we can have one happy, healthy pregnancy at my age, maybe we should not roll the dice again...
Here is me at 22 weeks and 27 weeks....
I have been bad about belly pictures. We'll probably take some this week.
I will post my story regarding Natural Childbirth shortly....
Thanks for reading/listening/supporting us all!!!
