I think you could look at the next few months as "getting ready" time. There are both emotional and physical needs that need attending to. You can start taking prenatal vitamins and folic acid and look to cut back any bad habits you might have - (coffee, etc.) And emotionally you can read a few books about childcare or childbirth. I like "Touchpoints" and think all parents should read it. It teaches us about ourselves in therapy too!

All that said, I can feel your disappointment at having to wait. Try not to be concerned about the clock and your age, it isn't so unusual for women to have babies in their 40s these days. And, I hope this doesn't sound harsh, but this is probably the first of many times that you will have to choose what is best for a child over what you want. And the fact that you are just shows what a great mother you will be.

Hugs from me,
Daisy
