Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I was thrust in to motherhood at 47, for the third and very much my final time. Having suffered a bereavement and nearing the age of the menopause, I ignored the pregnancy symptoms, and put them down to grief and my old lady hormones running loose and carefree! So sure of not being pregnant, I bought a Tesco Value Pregnancy Test Kit, just to rule it out. I remember sitting in my GP’s office weeping and asking him to tell me that the cheap test that I had used was of no use, and that indeed I was menopausal. He clapped his hands together and declared how wonderful me being pregnant was!
Now, here I find myself speeding towards my 50th birthday with a 2 year old toddler.
