Hi ladies I'm 35 & a stepmom to my awesome son who's 11 & who's dad I've been with of 11 years. It took a while for me to put on my big girl panties & decide it's time we had our "own". Time I figured was running out so if we were gonna do it.....well, DH did not quite share in my excitement & fought it pretty much the entire way through from my mc to ttc again and a year later out beautiful daughter was born. I love get to death. Dh says she's "great" & loves her BUT is out all the time & basically told me he resents me for hindering our lifestyle. Yes we traveled a LOT & had much freedom. Where I don't mind the sacrifices he unfortunately does & sadly it's causing issues in our marriage. I just hope & pray he "grows" up soon as he is almost 40 for crying out loud acting like a 21yr old oh well

I had lo at 37! I didn't expect...how unbelievably strong the love could be for a child! When everyone told me you just can't know until you have your own, they sure weren't kidding:-) She is like a little miracle to me and not an hour of any day goes by where I am not just amazed by her and how much she has added to our lives. I am in awe of her and often wonder how I had such a perfect little girl! She is, literally, an angel:-)

I will be 35 this Sunday!!!

I have 2 LOs - daughter age 2 and son 4 months.

I never dreamed of having a family until I was about 30. We were very luck to conceive within first few months both times.

I feel it has all worked out perfectly, we are financially stable and have done all our partying in our teens-late 20s!

hi again ladies I thought I'd bump this thread
and also ask:
how long did it take you to go back to your pre-pregnancy body? I'm slowly getting there weight-wise but my hips seem to have expanded at least one size - will they ever go back?!

After a year I am, unfortunately, close to my pre-pregnancy body

I did it the other way around and, due to looking after myself and controlling my diabetes better, I was three stone lighter after giving birth than I was at conception. I restricted all the tasty stuff during pregnancy and Ive certainly made up for it since

Will have to rein it all in again as we're now thinking about number two and I don't want to face another induction!

Anyone else's back ache a lot? and hips, and legs, and arms.... Haha! I guess I'll never know if it's easier physically if you have babies young! Just started pilates so hoping that will help build up some core strength... X

It's much, much easier. I had my son at 23 and my daughter at 34 and 51 weeks. Things did not ache as much from carrying my son, who was heavier, than my daughter.

How lovely to find this thread!! I'm a first-time Mum at 39.

I definitely wasn't ready to be a Mum until my late 30s and it took us 14 months of TTC with one m/c.

I'm nowhere near my pre-pregnancy weight and still look like I'm about 4-5 months pregnant although my tummy has gone down a lot since having my LO. I keep thinking I'm going to do something about it then not quite having the energy. More walking when the weather gets better, I reckon!!

Anyway, nice to meet you all - hope to chat soon - it's late and I need to go to bed!!!
