    Bonus for Moms with High Risk Pregnancies
    Any woman who has ever been pregnant knows just how much you get poked and prodded along the way.  There's the first visit to the OB/GYN when, at least for me, I was so excited and anxious and then they run down the list of tests they'd like to do, and I left feeling overwhelmed.  Instead of looking forward to those tiny fingers and toes, I was now paranoid about what COULD happen if I didn't eat the right thing or sleep on the right (left!) side.  To add to my already frazzled, nervous state and newfound pregnancy hormones, they utter three words I'd never heard before: Advanced Maternal Age.  I later laughed with family and friends about it, but at the time, I say, "I'm sorry, what?!" Advanced Maternal Age is the classification given to women who will be at least 35 years old when they deliver their baby. (The doctor tried to make me feel better about it, "it's just a term we use" but it was already out there: I'm old in baby-making years!)
