Just a quick note from me....

I would like to apologize to all of you who have Pm'd or left me messages....I know I havent responded to anyone lately. I have kind of been "hiding" as of late due to all thats going on in my life.
I found out not too long ago that Im pregnant, which is a wonderful thing BUT being 12 weeks along at the ripe age of 39 is a bit scary
Theres some other things going on as well which I wont go into, BUT I just wanted to thank all of you for your concern!! I have made some good friends here and I feel like I have been ignoring them SORRY!

Now if only the nausea and all that other yucky pregnancy stuff would stop I hope to be back around again alot more
You are a wonderful bunch of people

GK, Just look after yourself! We want you to be healthy and happy. I miss you to bits but totally understand having to take that time for yourself for health and other reasons...and it is more understandable this time of the year. I am always a PM away if you need a shoulder!

Thanks for checking in!

Congratulations, Kathe!!!!! What wonderful news! Don't worry too much about your age - this can be the easiest, most relaxed pregnancy you've ever had. My youngest was born when I was 46 and it was a breeze. Really. The doc told me if you are a healthy, non-pregnant person, that is the biggest indicator for a healthy, complication-free pregnancy. So try to relax and enjoy this special time. If you need any encouragement, feel free to PM me. In the mean time, keep us up on how you are doing whenever you can.

I am new to this forum and I don't know you, but I did get goosebumps when I read your thread. Congratulations!

Think on the bright side of things (I usually try to at all cost)...you are nearly past the 1st trimester, which is the hardest when over age 34...CONGRATS, CONGRATS, CONGRATS!

I think there are quite a few people here who would agree that being stuck with you is the GOOD part
