Almost 40 and Pregnant
|November 17, 2009||Posted by healthsmartmom under Pregnancy|
Well, it’s the end of my weight loss journey for now.
I’d like to say it was planned – but in reality it came as a surprise. I love kids and always wanted more, but based on my prenatal history, I just didn’t think it was meant to be.
So we got rid of all of our “baby” stuff, including all my maternity clothes, just around a year ago. And I was just now to the point where I could work in the church nursery and not yearn for another baby.
And just when I was least expecting it – there comes that little purple line!
Based on the calculations, the due date is actually July 2010, so it will be a little over a month before I turn 40, but being pregnant at my age leads to some challenges that I didn’t have to face when I was younger.
So if you are still on your weight loss journey – best of luck to you! I will still post articles and information that I feel will be useful (and that I will be applying as soon as I can) – but for now – I am off on a different journey.
Check in each week as I will give an update on my pregnancy as well as health tips and information for those health smart moms who are also on the pregnancy journey!
Here’s to the next 36 weeks!
