At the OB appointment yesterday
Me: On this form for the lab work, "High Risk" is checked. Is that just because of my age?
OB: Yes, we consider anyone over the age of 35 a high risk pregnancy.
Me: I've had all my kids at over the age of 35.
OB: (Breaking into a goofy grin) Yes, I noticed that. Got a bit of a late start, didn't you?
Me: I'm making up for it.
Hasn't the man read Aesop? I was about to mention that the Tortoise, too, got a late start, but I thought better of it--he may have come back with something about my resembling the Hare in terms of fertility...
**sigh** I'll be glad to switch to my midwife in the last few weeks...I don't feel like such a curiosity with her, as she delivers babies for lots of big families and older mamas. And she never asks me, "So, do you think you'll be done after this one?"
