     Thanks so much for the reply. Im doing all I can to stay healthy. I just worry about the baby having problems. I guess I shouldnt worry till I have something to worry about.

  No. I have older children, the oldest being 25. This was not planned. It is a blessing but very scary.

I can tell you that my Mother in law was about your age when she had her son (2 years ago). She had a perfectly fine pregnancy. Just make sure to take your prenatals and talk to your OB about any meds you are taking. 

here are a few groups that may help you:

My aunty just had (natural) twins at 47 and they're all healthy and well, she said it was the easiest pregnancy that she's ever had! Congrats on your pregnancy!
