I hate that the doctors call me 'geriatric'. Seriously, couldn't they use a better word?!
Anyway, heaps of women I know are having babies at my age, and older. It's just the done thing these days, where I live, anyway.
Ssjad - Geriatric?! Oh my. My doctors words weren't much better...he said "since you are considered to be... (Ahem)... Of advanced maternal age..."

I was 35 then...and am 37 now with a baby due in May.

I'm 36 but turning 37 very soon. The few people we have told have been surprised but I don't think it is because of my age, it is most likely they assumed we weren't going to have another one as our youngest is almost 5.

I haven't told work yet but I think they will be surprised too. I'm not looking forward to the reactions as it makes me question myself as to why exactly am I putting myself through this all again!

As for being 'old', I actually don't feel much different than when I was younger. I think so far I feel better than when I was 31 and pregnant but I weighed more then so the extra weight made pregnancy a bit harder. I'm still not up to the uncomfortable stage yet so I guess I may change my opinion then.

It might depend on where you live as to how old other mums are, I don't think 36 is that old really. I have friends who had their kids at this age and are now in their early 40's so I guess that helps me see it as normal.

LOL! You think you're old?! Haha that's cute. I'm 47 years old and 22 weeks pregnant! I'll be 48 when the baby is born. I got a lot of surprised reactions from people when I told them.
