43 and Pregnant

December 14, 2008 by Kailani  
Filed under hawaii, my family

Yes, the news is out. I’m 43 and pregnant. I’ll be 44 when this baby is due and will probably be the oldest mommy on the playground. I realize that age should not be a factor when you’re relatively healthy but try telling that to my body. It’s tired.

Needless to say, this was not a planned pregnancy. Given the fact that I’m on the pill, my husband and I work opposite flying schedules, and just the absolute busyness of our lives this is pretty much a miraculous event. I’m still in shock. In fact, I recently gave away all my maternity clothes and baby items to a friend of mine. Do you think I can ask for it back?

Before I continue, let me say that I know that every baby is a blessing. Given the fact that we tried for years before we had Baby Bug and suffered two miscarriages (one in my 4th month) I know how truly lucky I am. I really do.

But is it so terrible to feel a little (okay, a lot) of apprehension about starting all over again? The sleepless nights, the feedings every 2 hours, the tons of equipment you need to take with you just to go to the store across the street? I mean, it was only last week that I finally took Baby Bug to the shopping mall without a diaper bag and stroller. I felt so liberated!

And what about the pregnancy? Unfortunately, I’m not one of those pregnant mothers you find glowing with radiance and excitement. Truth be told you will probably find me curled up in a ball on the floor popping my Zolfran and sleeping for 16 hours a day.

DH on the other hand it thrilled. In fact, he’s already thinking of baby names which is a miracle since I couldn’t even get him to talk about the subject until a month before both of my prior births. He’s so happy about this unexpected news that it’s all he can talk about. He’s really starting to get on my nerves.

I don’t know, I’m hoping that something inside me will eventually click and I’ll begin to feel what I’m suppose to feel – excited, thrilled, or even just happy. However, I know that once the baby is here, I’ll look into his or (hopefully) her eyes and know that my life is just the way it should be.

But until then, don’t mind me. I know I’ll have good days and bad days and I’ll try not to bore you with all the pregnancy details. Heck, I’ll be lucky if I can post at all.

Oh by the way, I’m looking for guest posters . . . just in case. or use my contact form.

Thank you for all your well wishes and congratulations! It meant the world to me that you took the time to stop by and leave a comment. You guys are the best . . . really!

    Aw, yay, that’s exciting!!! Congrats and be share to take care of yourself. =)

  2. Tamy ~ 3Sides of Crazy says:

    I’m sure finding out such surprising and unexpected news during the holidays is just leaving you a bit stressed out. I bet anytime now you’re going to feel that glow and a smile will find you! Congratulations again on such a blessing!

  3. Bethany says:

    Congratulations!! What a special holiday surprise :)

  4. Sues2u2 says:

    A friend of mine (also 43) found out a little over 9 months ago that she was pregnant. She literally cried for 3 weeks! So don’t feel too bad. Of course when little baby R was born? All was wonderful And the fact that she didn’t gain as much weight as she did w/ her 5 previous pregnancies is as she put it “priceless”!

    You’ll do fine. I have great faith in the fact that planned or not, you adore your two little girls. This one will be no exception. So I say vent away when you need to! There’s no better place.

  5. Stacey says:

    Kailani you’re an amazing amazing woman and I have absolutely no doubt you will continue to be such. I will be honest, at 41 I cannot fathom doing it again, in fact I’m not sure I can handle being the grandmother I’ll need to be in the Spring. But something tells me you WILL radiate and….congratulations. xo

  6. illahee says:

    it must have been quite the shock, and you’re still recovering from it…in the first trimester no less! you’ll probably start feeling better about it soon, at least i hope you will!

    congrats again from japan. :D

  7. Melissa says:

    When we found out that Baby Girl was on her way I cried. I had gone into the Dr. for a bad respitory infection. He asked me to take a test, just in case. He thought my tears were of joy. No such luck. I was so upset. We were starting to realize that Little Bug had some major struggles and I was not ready to throw another kid into the mix! But it works out :) And you are an AWESOME mom!! I’m sorry your pregnancies aren’t the greatest…

  8. Krista says:

    Are you sure it doesn’t have anything to do with your DH being home on injured leave? :)
    I’m sure you’ll be fine and we will all give you lots of slack!!!

  9. ciara says:

    i’m 42 now, but at 32 i knew i was completely done. so much so, i had my tubes tied. maybe it’s a little scary for you now, but i’m sure all your maternal instincts will kick in soon w the new baby. i’m thinking it’s a boy (that’s my psychic guess lol). sometimes we think about how much stress it is being pregnant. some women love their babies but don’t enjoy being pregnant. i loved it until the last 2 or 3 months (maybe not the first 3 or 4 mos w my girls either cos i was sick ALL the time!) lol i know you’re strong and you’ll be o.k. i think it’s great that your husband is thrilled. would be worse if he wasn’t feeling it.

  10. Alyson, the 3 P's Mama says:

    Hey girl…

    I imagine this has been a bit of a shock. Never fear about any changes you need to make here nor any fussing/griping/whining you need to do. We love ya just the same and are here to support you every step of the way!

    As for the starting over, I can kinda relate. When DD3 came home from China at 10 mos, our other 2 were 4 and 5. We had given all but everything away. I have adapted and love her like the older two. Hubby still struggles with the ‘baby’ business but it will pass and all will be well.

    Please feel free to share any and all bits about Baby2B as you desire. I won’t judge ya, promise!

    Oh and bring on the Zofran!

    Hugz,
    Alyson

  11. Grace @ Sandier Pastures says:

    Kailani, I know you must be overwhelmed and though I can’t offer anything to make you feel better, I still hope you’ll feel better really soon.

    Who knows? Maybe this pregnancy won’t be that bad. Everything will fall into place, I believe.

  12. Amanda says:

    I can so relate to the Zofran. Take care of yourself, and everything will fall into place. We “started over” after our oldest was 4. He was 5 1/2 when the baby was born. It’s hard at first, but you fall into the baby rhythm again.

  13. Elizabeth M. says:

    Congratulations on the news and it’ll all fall into place as you go through it.

  14. Loralynn says:

    I know how you feel about the not being excited part. When I got pregnant (unexpected) with my second child, I already had a 6 month old and was less than thrilled. When they told me at 4 1/2 month that there might be something wrong with him (there wasn’t), you wouldn’t believe the protectiveness that washed over me! When you feel your little one move for the first time, everything will feel better! Your “Mommy” hormones will kick in! Congratulations!

  15. Summer says:

    It is absolutely ok to feel less than thrilled about a surprise pregnancy. Yes, not being able to have a baby is difficult but having one can be too, especially when it wasn’t in the plan. I know you’ll love this baby just as much and things will click into place eventually. (speaking from past experience here :)

  16. Tami says:

    Congratulations!

  17. AmyG says:

    Like all the previous commenters said… it will all work out! I wish you the best. And sound off on us, if you need to! I know I don’t mind! ;) Congrats again!

  18. Sharon says:

    Aw, congrats!! I can understand how you feel.
    My mother had me when she was 38, and she was pregnant a few more times after that. She received a lot of negative comments from her own relatives.
    Obviously it all worked out, though!

    Your own Christmas surprise…I’m sure this will mean good things for you and your family. :)
    Hang in there!

  19. Forgetfulone says:

    I’m 43 also, and apprehensive would be an understatement. What you’re feeling is normal. I know that it’s going to be a huge blessing for your family, too.

  20. Maribeth says:

    First. You’re 43? Holy Mother of all that is Holy! You do NOT look any older than 29! Honest and I am not just saying that to get brownie points.
    Second, wait until after the morning sickness phase. I suffered terribly with that, but by the end I was so much better and felt so much happier.
    Again, congratulations!

  21. Barbara says:

    you will feel better and more excited when you stop throwing up or maybe not until the baby is here. from a mom of 6

  22. Renee says:

    What you’re feeling is totally normal. Shoot, I’m all freaked out by your pregnancy too cuz it means that this is still a possibility for me at just about 42! I was so hoping that menopause was almost here for me. I have no idea what I would do if I were expecting a new baby after all this time. I still have a few baby things in the house to ward off such a thing. Cuz you know what causes this, getting rid of that last baby item.

    Unless the friend that you gave the clothes to is due the same time, I think that you can ask to borrow the clothes back. I’m sure she would be thrilled for you to be needing them again.

    I really do hope that this pregnancy goes well for you and that you and the baby are both healthy & safe. Feel free to continue to post your feelings here, everyone knows how this all goes. We want to send you virtual hugs.

  23. diana/sunshine says:

    i can understand your apprehension. i think most of us women would have some of the same feelings. you’re probably still a little in shock. but i also think the happiness and excitement will kick in.

    having your husband so excited will help, i’m sure. try to imagine your thoughts if he wasn’t happy about this pregnancy.

    i look forward to your posts on the pregnancy =)

  24. Sherry says:

    WooHoo! I have nothing but happy positive thoughts for you. I’m 44, never been married, no children and I have hope. Well miracles do happen.

    Congratulations, many blessings and much joy!!!

  25. maria says:

    My youngest was a bit of a shock too, granted I was only 28, but still we had decided we were done. two was good, only along came 3. Similar situation, it was like “how did that happen?”. There were good days and bad, just like you, the thought of all that baby crap again, was depressing and exhausting. But can I tell you, looking back now, the youngest has been my greatest blessing. I know it’s exhausting, and I felt the same way I imagine you are now. But in the end it all worked out. I’m sure it will for you as well.

  26. toni jensen says:

    hey there dear i know exactly how you feel. im not 43 but i get really depressed during pregnancies and i lost a baby midterm and i hate being pregnant beyond words . with my last pregnancy i felt lost we were going through a bad spell i was sick and all i could thik is why why why and felt bad that i just didnt want to be pregnant anymore and it got worse when i found out another girl it didnt get better until probably a couple days after she was born now i am glad she is here i would change it but i dont want to go through that again and i was gonna get a tubal but no insurace and now my DH is thinking to try again for a boy and alll i do is grin and look away so im here for you blogg away good luck and my prayers are there for u

  27. Nina says:

    Congrat’s…. I don’t think it matters what age you are we all go through those early pregnancy stresses. I know I did. You will adapt to the sleepless nights and all that goes with the baby in no time. It is just what mom’s do and we are darn good at it.

  28. Qtpies7 says:

    My third pregnancy was a shocker, and not at all desired. When I found out I said “If there is a God, this is his sick, cruel joke way of telling me I need him.” I was not at all excited about him. I even wanted to give him up for adoption, but I thought it would be bad after keeping his two older biological siblings, lol. My husband FORCED me to nurse him, and after 2 months I finally felt complete love for him.
    Turns out, he is my “favorite” now. His birth is what sent me over the edge and running to God and changed our whole lives for the better.
    (the kids call him my favorite, I wouldn’t put it that way, it is more like I pick my battles with the monster so he gets away with a bit more than the other kids, lol)

  29. sagemom says:

    Everything happens for a reason! I truly believe that. I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks before AQ shut down and I was very concerned about what the future would hold…but everything worked out just fine. Your apprehensions are totally normal. Just take good care of yourself and don’t worry about blogging. Although we’ll all be anxious to read updates, you, your family, and the miracle growing inside of you are your top priorities.

    Take care and if you need anything we’re all here for you = )

  30. desi says:

    I know your pain. At age 40 & 52, we adopted our foster son. Our girls were grown & mostly gone from home. Talk about starting over. I’m just glad I didn’t have to go thru the morning sickness. And yes, we get,”your grandson is so cute”. Thanks, I’ll be sure and tell my daughter, but for now, meet my son.

  31. anne says:

    I can only imagine the shock but it will all work out. I can understand the getting rid of everything then getting pregnant lol did that myself

  32. Spice says:

    CONGRATS!!!!

  33. AJacobsen says:

    Oh, the news is still so fresh to have an “ideal” reaction to an unplanned, unexpected pregnancy, and your response is completely normal. And as you know, in the first trimester you’re usually exhausted and miserable, which makes it hard to be happy about much at all! That maternal instinct will kick in soon enough (say, around week 10 or 12?) and you’ll be just as pleased as your husband is!!! I am excited for you!! God bless!

  34. Naomi says:

    I assumed you were much younger, if that’s any consolation…

    I hope you have a smooth and happy pregnancy. And that the girls are as excited as your husband!

  35. groovyoldlady says:

    It’s going to be wonderful. Really. But it’s OK if you feelotherwise. I would too!

  36. Jamie says:

    Congratulations again! I would feel a mixed bag of emotions. I think that’s completely normal. You were in one mommy mode and now you’re about to switch gears. I’m 39 and if I were to get pregnant now I’d freak out to be totally honest with you.

    I know as your pregnancy progresses you’ll be able to relax and enjoy it. Your husband sounds like he is already very excited! ;)

  37. gomomyourock says:

    Congrats!

    I had my 4th just before my 3rd went to Kindergarten – we were so close to being free of all the baby trappings, and had already gotten rid of everything. So close, yet, what a blessing. This boy (the others are girls) has changed our lives completely!

    Good luck, and rest as much as possible.

  38. Valeri says:

    aww, congrats! a friend of a friend is now pregnant for the first time (with twins) at 44. she went through a lot to get to this point, but has many of the same thoughts that you do.

    enjoy your “surprise”, and don’t be surprised if you aren’t the oldest mom on the playground, it’s really common to have baby’s after 40 now :)

  39. Jennifer @ Quiverfull Family says:

    Wow! What a gift from God! Congratulations on your newest little blessing :) . Children late in life help to keep you young :) ! Yeehaw! I was so excited when I saw your post title this morning.

  40. Victoria says:

    from everyone here at Rocket, we hope that everything goes really smoothly for you! Congrats!

  41. zjojor says:

    congratulations, may your pregnancy be problem free and filled with great experiences. It is always are blessing to give birth no matter what the age is. The adventure has began.

  42. Stacey says:

    I’m right there with you on the whole apprehension bit. When I was pregnant with my second we were totally in sync that we were done having babies. We were happy with two. Then, after my second was born, my husband starting playing the “what if” game. “What if we just try for one more?” He, not so secretly, wants a boy. I’m not so sure I want to go through the exhaustion of pregnancy and then embark on the sleepless nights and such again. I’ll be looking to you to see how it goes :)

  43. Muthering Heights says:

    Well, I can sympathize with you about the surprise pregnancy! I’m sure you’re still reeling from the crazy news, but what a precious surprise!

    Besides, it looks like you have a VERY cute helper to lend a hand when the new little one arrives! :)

  44. Tiff@Three Peas says:

    WOW! Congratulations!!! I know how it feels to start over again. My daughter is 10 years older than her brothers. Take it easy. I hope this pregnancy is an easier one.

  45. VeRonda says:

    Wow! Its one of those, mouth agape and can’t close it, moments… In a good way! I say this b/c my best friend is pregnant again and like you, she (they) totally didn’t expect it. And, I have one better (well maybe not) than being on the pill. She had the ring inside that had been there since her last birth, (clearing my throat) 7 1/2 years ago. Yep! She called me while she was in the bathroom and was in complete shock… We both were! Now, several months later, she’s had time to adjust AND fall in love. She’s not due until February, but she’s already saying how she’s cherishing these last few weeks b/c the baby will then be available to everyone and she won’t be able to have him to herself. I said all this to say its only a matter of time before the shock gives way to complete and utter love… Congrats!

  46. J. says:

    Congratulations! Hopefully, this pregnancy will surprise you and be even easier than before! May God bless you all abundantly each day!

  47. Lissete says:

    Although I can’t even imagine being pregnant at my age (42), only because both my girls are adults (18 & 19). Baby Bug is still, well… a baby :) I’m sure you’ll feel waaaay better about it soon.

    I guess that’s what happens when you have your hubby at home for several weeks straight!!! ;)

    Happy thoughts going your way!

  48. Jen E @ mommablogsalot says:

    I can see how you’d be apprehensive – I planned this pregnancy (I’m 8 weeks) and I’m still apprehensive – like, “Do I know what I’m getting myself into?” I don’t look forward to sleepless nights – I don’t look forward to getting as big as an elephant – I was not thrilled when the morning sickness finally reared it’s ugly head.

    But you know when these babies show up we’ll both be swooning with glee when we’re not wishing we were passed out in bed. :)

  49. Miss Blondie says:

    First off, Congratulations!!

    My mom had my sister when i was 16 and she was 36 and then had my brother when she was 40 and i was 20!! So she really started ALL.OVER. AGAIN. I’m sure your feelings are normal, we all feel like that at any age when we are pregnant. Once the baby comes, i’m sure you’ll be just fine. This is a wonderful blessing for you.

  50. Kila says:

    We’ve had surprises, too. We have 3 boys and only one was planned. I was not at all thrilled about #2, until the last trimester. DH was not at all thrilled about #3, perhaps until the birth. Takes a little time to adjust. Maybe this one will be a boy and an easier pregnancy for you. Moms seem to suffer more with girls.

  51. michellew says:

    Congratulations! As a 37 year old mother of 3 who is always contemplating adding to our family, but questioning whether or not I am too old, I am loving this!
    Take good care of yourself! You’ve given me hope!

  52. grubmama says:

    congratulations! you have beautiful children…why stop with three?

  53. Tammy W says:

    I was 38 with my last…yep big surprise there and I was on the pill too! I pray your pregnancy goes MUCH MUCH better than mine did. (I was diagnosed Breast Cancer at 28 weeks). Pay close attention to your body and MAKE your doctor listen to you!!!!!

    Blessings!!!!!!!!

  54. Cat @ 3 Kids and Us says:

    I know a lot of how you are feeling. Age wise, no but surprise pregnancy yes. We found out we were having our 3rd when our daughter was just 11 months old. It took months to get excited but now that I’m nearing the end of this pregnancy it’s really starting to become REAL for me. I’m sure you will do great again, just give it some time.

  55. thefarmerfiles says:

    Congratulations!!!! I opened this and was so thrilled and shocked…and thrilled!!!!! I am going to love reading your journey…hope you blog TONS about it! Many rich blessings to you and yours!

  56. Shae says:

    Congratulations. An exciting time for you.

  57. Melinda says:

    That happened to a relative of my husbands. She had two kids in college and then got pregnant…then she had surgery to prevent any further pregnances, but it didnt work, and she got pregnant AGAIN. So now they have a 22 yr old, a 20 yr old, a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old. It must be hard to start all over.

    I dont think anyone would blame you for feeling a sense of anxiety.
    I’m sure your feelings will change towards this baby once you hear the hearbeat and as the pregnancy progresses. :)

    I hope this pregnancy goes easier than your others.

  58. Desert Songbird says:

    You’ll find your joy in your own time. It will happen. For now, just take care of yourself.

  59. Kari says:

    Congratulations! Here’s to you having a healthy, happy pregnancy. Take care.

  60. Tiaras & Tantrums says:

    I think it is fantastic – so exciting – you will be dog ass tired for the next two years – it will pass in a blur and then you will have all the cuddles and snuggles and kisses and forget all about it!!

  61. Julie From Inmates says:

    How exciting!!! I will be praying for you and the baby =)

  62. Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor says:

    Oh my goodness, I’m not sure if I envy you! When the baby arrives of course you will be thrilled but the shock must be overwhelming at times! In awhile you will be excited so don’t worry about that. Give yourself some time.

    Your friend will give your stuff back, probably without even asking, so don’t worry about that either.

    I hope everything goes well for you… Take care!

  63. Jess @ NBP says:

    Congrats on the pregnancy! I felt the same as you when I pissed on the stick for the second after 7 months post with Cman. It was a horrible feeling and still to this day I feel horrible that I had two so close together and that I can’t get them very much of their own toys. They play with everything we have but neither one has a MY toy. KWIM? But I wouldn’t trade it for anything, although I’d like to go for a girl. LOL

    HH9!!!

  64. Dee says:

    Hi Kailani!

    I understand completely what you are going thru and your thoughts. I could still have children and if I should and if I did, my thoughts would be right there where yours are.

    Now having said that, I hope you do have a safe and healthy pregnancy……I hope you GLOW~

  65. Kristin says:

    Totally not a bore!

    Yay I get to be pregnant with someone!

  66. Amanda says:

    Congratulaitons Kailani!! I am extrmely excited for you! I wish it were me! hehe

  67. Nikki says:

    Congratulations!! What a special holiday surprise!

  68. Jennifer says:

    congrats to your family!!

  69. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Oh Kailani, I just saw this (I’m a bit behind again, as usual). Congratulations!!

    I think of many of the same things when I wonder if we should have a 4th baby. I’d be in my 40’s by then likely enough, do we want to start all over, etc. I’ll have to watch and see how it goes for you. ;)

    Any bets as to how many people are going to ask if you’re hoping for a boy this time? LOL

  70. Aloha Monkey says:

    Wow! Congratulations! I guess, from what you said, this is truly a miracle. My family would like to have one more addition, but I said my baby carrying days are over. I think at 39 years old, I’m too fragile. But I’m so happy for your blessing.

  71. Ginny says:

    It’s ok to feel that way! I only wanted one baby. I felt the same way when I had my second. I will be honest, it didn’t really fully click for me until the day I had her. Terrible I know, I had her 5 weeks early though. Now I couldn’t imagine life without her!

    Congratulations to you!

  72. Debbie says:

    Congratulations. I’m excited for you. I am 44 and what a wonderful surprise that would be to be prego! Take care. Keep us updated.
    Blessings,

  73. Jamaise says:

    My Mom was 50 with her last, my little brother Hayden. She is Mom to nine of us. Before Hayden, she had he uterus cauterized (sorry to be graphic) & had to sign to have it done stating she wanted no more children. I went with her for a constultation on possibly having the procedure done again – there on the ultrasound we saw him & he was sliding back & forth like he was in a bath tub!
    He keeps her young & yours will too, after it wears you out!
    Congrats to you!

  74. monika says:

    hi kailiani!
    congratulations! that’s hapy news. i’m 44 and had a miscarriage about 2 months ago. well, congrats again –hey things happen for a reason:) aloha!

  75. jennifer says:

    Awww, honey, no worries! Just bring the baby to bed with you, roll over and nurse when you need to, and nobody wakes up. Other than that, all you need are some diapers and maternity jeans and are you good to go!

    Congrats again!

  76. Melissa Markham says:

    I don’t think your feelings are odd and I am sure as things progress, the ‘excited feelings’ will emerge. It definitely seems like this child is a special gift from God, considering you were on the pill and your schedules.

    I hope you will feel better and have more energy soon! Are the girls excited?

  77. Becky says:

    Congrats! I happened upon your post when searching for info about being pregnant at 43. I just tested positive myself….yep an accident. I had my first child when I was 40 after two miscarriages. I didn’t expect to ever get pregnant again but here we are…..It’s scary isn’t it? I’m scared to death…

  78. BeachMama says:

    Oh Kailani! Congratulations on your pregnancy. As unexpected as it is, you are right that it is a blessing. Wishing you all the best over the next nine months or so.

  79. Jassett stewart says:

  82. Angela says:

    Ok, I have an 8 month old healthy baby girl. I was 42 when I had her. I’m 43 now and have missed a period so not sure at this time if I am pregnant, but will find out soon I’m sure. I have a 23 year old son and a 22 year old daughter from a previous marriage. My daughter is married and was pregnant when I was and had my granddaughter 4 months after I had my baby. Yes, it was pretty special, this whole experience. I had a perfect pregnancy, was actually over 2 weeks late. I had natural delivery with no pain meds/epidural. The nurse said I was a ‘textbook’ delivery. My father-in-law has a sister 23 years younger than he is. His mother had his sister when she was in her 40’s. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about having my baby girl at my age. She has brought so much joy to my husband and I. She was not planned although we had tried a few ears before and I had 2 miscarriages within 3 years so thought it was not in the cards. Well, look at me now, lol. There are women in their 50’s, 60’s, and a few even older than that have had babies. So, the 40’s age range is not ‘SO’ crazy as many make it out to be. It really annoys me that such hoopla is made over it.

    wow … I feel better already then. I am 43 and was told YEARS ago that I could not get pregnant. But I am 14 days late and going to the dr tomorrow. Urine test have been negative but the the Dr told me that my hcg levels could just be low since I have been having normal periods (perfect 28 day cycle) like clock work since forever ago. I am scared to death of course, I am a nurse and I read toooo much about risk and things that could happen. Reading all the post have helped to ease my nerves a little. So Thanks!
