Wow! Congratulations to you both. All she needs to do is get the rest she needs and visit her clinic or doctor to ensure that she is fine. So I can have my next child then! Congrats! Baby on Board People!!!!

Congratulations on your new Baby! I am so happy you got a chance to live your lives to the fullest because a Child can take alot. I hope you have a good support systems because children are alot of work, require alot of patience, commpassion, support, dedication, ENERGY and take alot more love than they give. For the most part Children are the best blessing God can give not everyone can have Children. Good Luck to you and hope your wife energy returns quickly.

That is great news. I hope everything goes well for mom and baby. Your wife will need a lot of support from you during the pregnancy. You have to make sure that she goes to her prenatal appointments, which I'm assuming would be quite often since her pregnancy is considered high-risk simply because of her age. The important thing is that she knows that you're there for her during her pregnancy.

Congratulations! The most important thing is for your wife to take care of herself and to get good prenatal care. A lot of women in their forties are having successful pregnancies these days. :-)
