I didn't notice the change in years, so was wondering how he got here so quickly, lol.

Congratulations! I had my last at 40 and DH was 49.  He is one next week and oh so gorgeous.

Have fun baby snuggles!

DH was a surprise honeymoon baby for his 43yo mum and 50yo dad..... This was very rare in the early 1970s, especially for a first!

Glad you are happy OP!

Congratulations! I had an unplanned pregnancy last year, my health was not great, but I miscarried at 7 weeks. I would do anything to be holding that baby right now. It would be about a month old.

Hi everyone about to have number 3 in a few weeks and I'm 44 with a 10 year old and 14 year old! Don't worry this one wasn't planned however neither of us were on permanent contraception so was supposed to be. We are trying to keep fit and healthy and I've been far more relaxed this time around, I wish all of us older mums the best. It's actually quite funny when people ask how old I am I throw back how old do I look? Mostly people too embarrassed to guess or guess 39. There are heaps of older mums around so we don't feel out of place especially as it's so obviously not our first.

Hi OP, I am almost 42 and have a 8 month old, although mine was planned and long awaited. I know how you feel being stuck at home and feeling old for all this, however I really get a lot of joy spending time with my little one and wouldnt have it any other way. That said I wouldnt know what to do if I fell pregnant again so completely understand you there. Try to sit and work out what would be the best for you and how would you feel either way of the decision. Wish you all the best.

oops, just realised this was old thread!! Congrats OP!!

Think how wonderful it's going to be to see all your children together. ...it makes my heart melt every time. Ds2(2.5months) just stares at ds1(28months) all day...tries to talk to him and call him...Ds1 just jumps around trying to entertain ds2....I just love it. You will manage.....it's ok...

Maybe u could consider cheaper holidays and maybe travelling in Australia?  

I personally think that you can't really calculate how much money you miss out on/it costs because of the Long term happiness and joy of a baby. ...it is immeasurable and uncompareable
