40 & Knocked Up! Ch 11
Nutrition is vital no matter how old you are. It's especially important for older moms and moms-to-be. What you eat - and how much you eat - can change whether your pregnancy is a healthy one. Amy speaks one-on-one with Certified Nurse Midwife Valeriana Pasqua-Masback about the food you eat.

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 10 - Conversation with Certified Nurse Midwife Valeriana Pasqua-Masback
We were so lucky this week to speak with Certified Nurse Midwife Valeriana Pasqua-Masback. We caught up with her just after she had helped another woman give birth to a healthy baby. In that warm after-glow she told us how healthy lifestyles and diets can make a huge difference when you're trying to have a successful pregnancy later in life.

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 9 - Zombie Leg
Nothing like a nasty surprise - in this case what Amy calls a zombie leg. Varicose veins can carve a road map on your skin. And that's just the beginning. The discomfort after a day on your feet working is no fun either!

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 8 - A convo with new older mom Brittney Gilbert
Brittney Gilbert is a 39 year old "new" mom. She doesn't get much sleep. As she writes, her baby now wakes her up at the same time in the early a.m. when she used to get home from a night on the town. Brittney and her husband live in Queens, NY. She talks about her expectations - and how the reality of her birthing experience was much different. Spoiler alert: It all ends well!

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 7 - Two Hospitals, One Day
Mexican food is delicious It also has some medicinal qualities. So say those who know of such things. It's also used, at times, to help expectant mothers to move the whole birthing thing along. But, when it's not expected...you go to not one, but two hospitals.

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 6 - Who Needs a Job?
The good news: Amy's pregnant. The bad news: Scott's position at work is eliminated. Not the kind of math that works well when there's soon to be another mouth to feed.

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 5 - Fertility Doctor Visit
We visited a fertility doctor to get a better understanding of why we weren't getting pregnant. The answer wasn't good. The odds were definitely against us.

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 4 - Working While Waiting
There's a lot of waiting involved when you're trying to get pregnant. And that extra time can try your patience and be bad for the patient (see how we did that?) That's one of the reasons why Amy took a job. That and money. It's always money. But it wasn't the only reason. For more, please listen to Chapter 4 of 40 & Knocked Up!

40 & Knocked Up! Ch 2 - Looking For Info & Inspiration
We stood staring at the shelves in the bookstore, desperately looking for any book on being pregnant in your 40's. There was none. At first we wondered why no one was writing about it. Then we had an idea...
