I am pregnant. I was supposed to have surgery. I could not because I am pregnant. I am turning 44 yrs old this week. I am shocked and worried. I was laughing at first. But once the reality set in, I started googling pregnancy at my age. 50% chance of miscarriage. A large chance of many other problems. To top it off, I hurt my tail bone and was supposed to have a little surgery on it. I also have a raging UTI that I have not been able to rid of. Oh, and if you Google "44 and pregnant" you actually get a lot of hits from people who died having a baby at my age. I just keep reminding myself this is a blessing. And not to worry about the fact that I will be almost 70 when this child graduates college. And don't worry about the fact that my husband has a heart problem so good chance he won't live that long so we had wanted an early retirement. And not to worry about the fact that I feel broke already. And really don't worry about the fact that I was scorned by people when I had a baby at 41. People can be very nasty toward pregnant women. The way people spoke to me, you would think it was a nasty vile thing, an attack on everyone, to have a baby at 41 yrs old, and especially when I already had other children at the time. I went to bed crying with worry. I woke up like a jolt today. I have another doctors appointment today. I prayed last night over this and I will continue to pray, every day, a few times a day hopefully, to get through this. Anyone have good advice? Anyone else have a baby at this age?
