  1. thanks for this encouraging post for women!

  2. This is GREAT! I am a mom of 2 expecting my 3rd and I an in my 40's. There isn't a lot of support out there for "older moms". Thanks for this.

  3. Ladies, I really appreciate your comments. Lisa, congratulations on your wonderful news! You've joined the right blog for support for older moms! Join InSeasonMom on Facebook, too.

  4. I no longer feel all alone !!! I stumbled onto this site and really enjoy reading that there are more moms out there older with little ones. I was 47 when I gave birth to my now 10 year old son. It was the best thing that has ever happened to me!!! The only thing I ever hear is "What in the world were you thinking"? There wasn't and still isn't alot of support out there for us older moms!! Thank you
