Here is a short sample from the book:
Welcome to my fortnightly(ish) update for ‘Pushing over 40’. This week we’re celebrating our two year anniversary so well done to everyone for making this website what it is … informative, caring and full of hope!
So what if we’re the wrong side of twenty one and want to have a family?
Who cares if our statistics look grim and ‘high risk’ for our age?
We know as soon as we hit the ‘40’ benchmark it’s all about numbers and statistics even though for us, it’s about having a baby… wanting one, coping with the trials and tribulations of getting pregnant and basically supporting each other in times of need.
What are my plans for the future?
To get knocked up and hopefully meet a nice man in the process, probably in that order! Joking apart, my baby for now is this website. Special thanks to everyone that contributes and who help others. It’s great to have a little ray of hope. Keep on logging in. Your thoughts and advice are invaluable to all and especially me.
Keep in touch, stay close and give hope.
Pushing over 40’
I never expected to find myself writing this. It was something I always knew could happen to others but I never expected it to happen to me.
When I went for my amniocentesis results they told me something so devastating.
My baby was going to die.
I had to make some choices I thought I’d never have to think about.
I’ve lost my beloved daughter and I can’t type due to the tears blurring my vision.
The pain is nothing like I felt before.
I’ll send more information when I can face writing it down.
They have an expression for when you lose a husband, parent… why is there no word to describe when you lose a child, a baby.
You know why?
Because it’s not supposed to happen, that’s why.
