Met up with girlfriend while waiting for daughter. She confided. At 45, she is going to be a mother. For the 5th time. Upon seeing the two lines, she, shocked while, husband, took it calmly. No more champagne popping excitment. Still thinking of a way to break the news to in law. With a son and 3 daughters yet.... Had often wonder why the Gynae did not advise her on the appropriate method but then again, Gynae is a mother of 7. Motherhood started at 35 and it has been a handful since. Two maids to keep the children, in-laws and the house in order while she busy with the children's school and enrichment courses. Most admirable as she is one of the most patience mother I have met. Though looking forward to the new addition to the family, carrying a child at 45 does give cause to some worry. Mother's well being and also child's.
