Well, today I turn 41.  41 and pregnant.  Who would have thought?  Not me!  I was supposed to be the mother of teenagers by this age right?  Well, that is what I used to think when I was younger.  But as they say, you plan and God laughs.  🙂

I have to say I would not change things.  Well, it would have been nice not to have had to struggle for 3 years to get pregnant or going through all of the procedures, but I don’t mind being pregnant at this age, even marrying my husband 4 years ago.  Yes, our anniversary was November 15.  It is nice feeling prepared emotionally and financially for this.

There are days I feel every bit of my age, but then I think is it because I am pregnant or is it because I am 41 and pregnant?  What ever it is I am grateful to feel it because I have another life inside of me.  A life that has been prayed for, for years.  We are less than 60 days away from meeting our little guy and I can’t wait!


I had my 2nd NST on Friday and it went well.  Little boy seemed to sleep for a while, but then he woke up and they got some good reading on him.  Back to the office on Tuesday for another ultrasound and NST before the Thanksgiving holiday.


As I mentioned, our 4th wedding anniversary was the 15th and unfortunately hubby was not here to celebrate it with me.  😦  He is on a mini tour.  Started out in Wisconsin, then North Dakota and he is in Montana for 2 shows.  Tonight is his last show and then he heads back.  He should be home Tuesday morning.   I cannot wait to see him.  The longest we have been apart since we got married is one night.  So this has been pretty tough.  I think probably extra tough because we are so close to having this baby and I am full of hormones.  We talk on the phone twice a day and s that has helped.  In the mean time he has sent me flowers, 3 days worth!  One for the anniversary and one for my birthday and one in between. 🙂

What a great guy who I love very much!  🙂

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Thanks for reading!

    Happy birthday Melissa! I’m so happy for you! I, too, was 41 and pregnant, albeit for just four days. Yes, my life plans differed from God’s plans. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
