I however did surprise people when I had my DS at 29 and will likely surprise people again by having another at 31...I'm practically considered a teenage parent!
Really?? I live in Spain, and I thought this was the place with oldest mums ever.

I'm 43 and will be 44 when I have the baby providing all goes well.I'm a little nervous as I've had 6 miscarriages and it's early days. I'm not sure at what stage I would tell people but I can't imagine getting a great reaction if I'm honest. But stuff them, eh?

It makes me sad that so many women are made to feel uncomfortable about their age, especially by family members or their healthcare providers! Don't feel "old". Whenever I feel old, I remind myself that a) I'm blessed to be alive and b) I'll be 60 when my child is 30 and I think 60 is pretty young!!

Wow I haven't been back to this thread in a while! Nice to see so many positive responses.

I was told recently that I've given some women hope because they are 35+ and hoping for another. Even that makes me feel a little aged, but at least I'm giving hope! lol.

I'm taking it all with a grain of sand because I'm ecstatic to be pregnant and already thinking of another shortly after

I had my first at 32 after 3 1/2 years of trying. Now I am approx 6 weeks pregnant with my second after trying for 2 years. I will be 37 in December.

I'm another geriatric mum!

I had my first when I was 35, second at 37. We had a couple of 'hiccups' last year, and I'm now 27 weeks pregnant with my 3rd at 41.

I've actually had no comments at all about my age, not even from healthcare professionals. I get extra scans anyway because I'm classed as high risk due to a blood clotting disorder so I guess they didn't have to mention the age thing!

Oh fingers crossed for you.
I think partially my age and also because I already have 4 children. I know my mum won't be impressed! And my friends will think I'm mad. Most people my age have grown up kids so the thought of having another is alien to them
