Signing Off Until the New Year
You know you're a late-in-life mom when:
The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) publishes a magazine for late-in-life moms. It's called PLUM--as in something especially prized. PLUM is the first-ever pregnancy magazine for women 35 years and older.
"There must be more to life than having everything." ~ Maurice Sendak (children's book author)
Tell me something I don't already know!
You'd think my life was busy enough without getting involved in an online community.
I faced a lot of challenges as a late-in-life mom. My 41 year old body wasn't too thrilled about being pregnant again. Labor and delivery required pitocin and an epidural--after I'd had no medication for my first three labors. My body didn't bounce back once Christa was born--and it took me quite a few months to mentally accept that I had a baby.
All the Thankgiving hustle and bustle and feasting and time with friends and family went by to quickly! It seemed like there were only a few short minutes between sticking the turkey in the oven and tucking the leftovers away in my fridge. (The truth is , my turkey once again took too long to cook!)
