Seems you were dealt a rough run the first time around.
My first pregnancy felt like a breeze compared to this one. But this one isn't too bad either.
I think the main message is...no pregnancy is alike! Good luck!
My first at 35/36 and now I'm 38. No different really. My first I was tired as working a physical full time job. This time I'm tired because I'm keeping up with a 2 year old. Mind you I feel no older now than I did at 25!
My first was at 34, second at 36/ 37 and my current one at 38 (will be 39 before the baby is born.)
My first pregnancy was by far the hardest, I was more tired with the second one but that was because I was waking up at night with my 2yo, I was no more tired during the pregnancy than I was before it. Second pregnancy was much much easier than the first though.
Third pregnancy, again I am more tired, but now I am waking up with 2 children and the youngest one who is still breastfeeding is going to bed late, getting up early and at least once, usually more in the night. Again, I am no more tired than I was before getting pregnant, the extra tiredness is from dealing with my 2 kids!
If its a singleton pregnancy then you should in general find it easier despite being older, I have just had our latest at 39 and found it no less or more difficult than the rest really Congratulations btw! Whens your 1st scan??
