35 and pregnant

I just wanted to say how exited I am to be pregnant. My husband and I thought we were done with the thought of another baby. My son is almost 7 and I just found out I am 8 weeks pregnant. Along with my excitement is also fear. Let’s face it, my body isn’t what it once was when I had my son. I am much heavier and some minor health issues.

I am terrified to be a mommy again at the age of 35. I now get the label geriatric pregnancy and that is what scares me.
