I've known for a little over 8 weeks. But given that my hubby and I have had pregnancy difficulties in the past we wanted to wait until our test results came back to tell family. This will be baby #2 and our last given our age (38) all is well.

I am very happy for you and your husband. I am glad that you both have some very good news to tell your family also. I only have one daughter. I cannot have any more children. She is now 16. We already raised three of my husbands children also. We are glad to be able to finally get them all raised and ready for the real world. that is enough for our age as well. Best wishes.

Congrats!!!! There is nothing wrong with having kids at 38! There is 11yrs differece betwwen my 2 boys and my daughter. I think the older you are you enjoy kids more instead of being young and nervous all the time.

ersmommy_ Congrats. I guess 38 is about the end of the line. It is hard to keep quiet when you want a baby, but you're not sure if you can have or keep one. My daughter is in her middle twenties and for almost a year now, she can't get pregnant. All her friends, co=workers and in-laws say "Don't you want to have children? Or when are you two going to start a family?" It breaks my daughter's heart because she is trying and it's not working. She lies and tells everyone they're not ready yet and when she's alone, she cries. Maybe your good fortune will come through the computer screen to me. Next time she calls me, the positive energy will radiate from me, through the phone and into her heart and little pregnant tummy. Stranger things have happened. Thanks for sharing your joy with us. little mommy times two.

I guess it does make my user name a bit obsolete. Tell your daughter to hang in there and be strong. If she quits trying that may have it happen sooner. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks. She knows. I told her to keep her husband away for one month, she'll get pregnant. My son-in-law won't talk to me anymore_ I try to find things to keep her spirit up. She went to the ob/gyn because she was convinced she wasn't ovulating. She isn't. Yesterday she called me so sad again. She's been monitoring her temp, and it finally went up for the first time and she thinks she did ovulate. But she has period cramps_ She's caught in this cycle. She gets her hopes up, oh, I shouldn't be talking to you about this, when you are filled with joy. Forgive me please.

Congrats! What are you about 11wks now? Did you have a preference of whether you want a boy or a girl? I just had a little girl in April. I hope all goes well for you and baby. Keep us posted.
