First Trimester

Pregnancy in older moms

Its really hard to find information or sites for older moms who are expecting unexpectedly.....
Everything I can find relates to coupes or moms who chose to wait until later in life to start a family or who are dealing with fertility issues.

I did not feel comfortable joining these sites because most of them are or have had a very hard time with trying to become pregnant etc.

Another Day Gone By

Another day has gone by and yet I still have so much to learn before he/she gets here in July. Today I have told my grandparents and I couldn't believe how happy there are for me. My grandmother gave me a hug and they just had these big smiles on their faces. This is the biggest news I have ever told them and I love so much for their reaction.

This is my first time having a child, but I have been pregnant twice before. I have two miscarriages last year and as devastating as it was I waited a long while before I got tested to see if I'm pregnant again even though I have all the signs that I am. Finally I found out and I'm almost done my third month. My first two miscarriages never made it to the second month.

When Should I Have My First Prenatal Appointment?

I found out that I was pregnant. My doctor set me up with a OB/GYN. My OBGYN isn't going to see me right away. He wants me to be at least 12 weeks along before he sees me.

I'm afraid that is a little to long to wait. This is my first pregnancy and I don't know what I am doing. When is the best time to first see a OB/GYN and get my first ultrasound?
