Im 48 missed my monthly that comes faithfully every 28 days and to my surprised I have a bundle of joy that I will for now call My Diamond. I'm excited and want to do all I can to keep healthy and eat right. A little nervous but God and my best friend will get me through my pregnancy. (smile)
Mine is not a planned pregnancy. In fact, I had come to think that, much as I loved the thought of having a child of my own, this was not to be for me. I'm a teacher, and hanging out with other people's kids fed my baby hunger some - it's also quite a powerful contraceptive, as I know for sure that children are not all sweetness and light all the time! They can be noisy, frustrating and grey hair-inducing... but they are also awe-inspiring and joyous and honest.
Life's been pretty crazy lately. I mean turned upside down, inside out and then twisted for good measure. I never thought I would be where I am today.
