Hello Ladies! I'm 40 years old & pregnant with baby #4, due Feb. 25th & it's a girl! I have an 18 yr. old boy, Dakota, freshamn in college, 14 yr. old girl, Cheyenne, freshman in high school & a 7 yr. old boy, Luke, in 1st grade. We're excited about our 2014 baby girl but she was no where near expected. I thought the baby factory was closed! 40 & pregnant is alot differant than pregnancy in my 20's. In my 20's, everything was easy. Now, in my 40's, I get tired so easily & I've already had 3 ultra sounds & I only had a total of 2 ultra sounds during each of my other pregnancies. It seems like every time I turn around there's an appointment for something. Just had a $800 Harmony blood test & now I'm going for the 2 hour sugar test at the end of November. I'll be 24 weeks Tuesday & I already feel & look 9 months pregnant. Ankles & legs are already swelling & I'm almost to the point that I need help putting socks on & did I mention I'm ONLY 24 weeks! lol! I've still got a ways to go. But I wouldn't change a thing because all I want is a healthy baby girl. Because as a mother we just want the best for our babies no matter how old they are or we are, lol!
