Hi all
Being 42 and expecting again is so wonderful. If anyone had said that this would happen when I was in my 20's I would have run a mile. The biggest problem is a total lack of energy even just at 19weeks. Never managed to shift baby weight so as well as looking after toddler, carrying excess weight and working from home I dont get much chance to rest. Anyone got any helpful advice. Also wondering about maternity trousers as I still have a jelly belly and a bump and at 14 stone I just cant seem to get the right fit. The trousers either go all the way over or go under the mummy tummy and fall down! Yikes! Gotta fini toddler needs me

hi, just joined the forum. you must have given birth to your new baby by now, congrats! i've been trying to get pregnant since i was 32 to no avail, so we decided to adopt a baby from asia who's now 2 years old. we're still trying to get pregnant at age 39, and a lot of adoptive parents conceived after adopting... best to you and take it easy!

well done you- a lot on your plate! remember to make time to relax, let your OH take some of the strain. My daughter is 12 and I am still carrying baby weight and making number 2 now! I can relate to the jelly belly issue as I have tummy but no hips! I live in my H&M maternity jeans, top shop also have some nice ones. I bought maternity trousers last week from new Look and they look nice , but do tend to fall down. As for the advice to buy your pre- pregnancy size- nonsence , everything is huge so I am buying a size down for a better fit- good luck mum !

Post subject: 42 and mommy again
Hi all Im 42 and just had a baby boy almost 3 months ago.. Im lovin it! I have two daughters who are almost 20 and 17. I think being an older mother and having older children makes you really value each day. I spent a lot of time with my girls growing up I was a very active mother. Field trips, sports just spent as much time with them as I could. Dont you find as new mothers again after many years you can really respect( as we know how fast our children grow up) every moment.

As for the extra weight I was very lucky I thought for sure at my age I would have a hard time with weight. I only gained 19 pounds my pregnancy and thankfully my metabolism is working good. Im sure toning wont be much of a problem either when this little guy starts moving about and I gotta chase him down lol.

Hi - this thread is really great to read. Smile I have a little boy (7 years old today!) and just this week experienced my second silent miscarriage in 2 years.
Michelletv - it's great to hear you had such a positive outcome after the same experience. Haven't lost hope but it's nice to read about success stories. Smile xx

Dont lose hope I too suffered two miscarriages before my little boy came along. One happened when I was almost 3 months and the other happened at 6 weeks.
