and anytime anyone mentions my age I just say 'Isn't it amazing?! It's wonderful, isn't it?! We are thrilled!'
Except for close friends, most people (neighbors, etc) don't know I was trying to get pregnant so I go with that.
I actually think at the moment we have it much easier than our younger friends with kids the same age as our child. Our house will be paid for in 2 years, I only work part-time and not at all the first year after a birth. We are happy to stay at home with our kids, while younger friends and relatives struggle to find babysitters so they can go 'out.'
We're OK with our age.
