I took a risk whenI got pregnant and had my two sons when I was 43 and 45. I had very normal pregnancies with no complications, but had to have an unplanned C-section with each child. I had never really wanted to be a mother, but after my first son was born, I couldn’t believe the love I felt. My world immediately changed from self centered to child centered. Fortunately, I had quite a bit of energy and had had an exciting and adventurous life pre- pregnancy, but my boys tested my limits at every level in my forties & fifties. However, I am so blessed and grateful to have had the opportunity to love and nurture my sons!
