My mother and her sister both ahd babies well into their forties and that was over 40 years ago! Put yourself in the care of a good doctor, take good care of yourself and try to enjoy the pregnancy.

Why was she upset? Was she jealous, embarrassed, scared? If you can find the reason she was so upset then you can start addressing the issue. Maybe she is afraid to share you with the baby, or that you won't be as close anymore. What was her reaction to the miscarriage?

So she is probably going to be very concerned again this time. Perhaps if she can go with you to the doctor to hear some reassuring word from him. In truth you are a high risk pregnancy, and she may have read some scary things on the internet. Encourage her to come to you to talk about her fears. What is your rooming plan?
