Emma,

Congratulations on your pregnancy! You are truly blessed to be expecting a child at 45 years of age. I have a friend who had a baby when she was 44 and he is the light of her life! I had my last baby when I was 40.

I have another friend who is 43 and is now 8 weeks pregnant. She has been trying for a baby for years.
Whether you choose to tell your husband now or not, it will be good for you to know that early miscarriage is common in women your age. Often times you may not even see a heartbeat at your 6 week appointment. And if you do see a heartbeat at 6 weeks, then your next hurdle will be to get past the 12 week mark.

Aside from the concern you have about your husband's response, how do you feel about this baby? I've seen many daddies who were not happy about a pregnancy become the best father's once baby was born.

Please let us know if you have any questions at all or if you just need reassurance or want to chat. We're here to listen, support and encourage you.

Big Hugs,

Kate
