36 here and 8.5 mos pregnant. Its been harder on me physically than I recall with DD 7 years ago, but there haven't been any undue age risks. I did end up with GD, but that more to do with PCos/overweight than age.
Baby has done wonderfully this whole pregnancy. I plan to be far more physically fit and lighter before the next. I think that may be the difference and not necessarily age!
I worried about downs and all the other "age" related risks and it was nothing.
I worried about all the things they say older moms can experience and have had nothing to worry about it!
good luck to ya!
Can I ask you if you had any symptoms with the GD? I am overweight and have PCOS too and I just have this feeling that it's almost inevitable that I'll get GD! Only 16 weeks just now but I'm so thirsty and tired and up several times a night to pee! I'm also really affected by what I eat, I'm just coming out of the horrendous hyperemesis that I've had but still feeling sick after eating certain things which make me wonder if it's a blood sugar issue.
Hi ladies! I'm still ttc #1 but hope to join you in this thread very soon as I turned 36 a couple weeks ago and am trying really hard not to worry that we haven't gotten pregnant yet. This is our fifth month trying. Wishing you all a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancies!!
Hello ladies. I just turned 36 and I'll be 9 weeks tomorrow with my first. Am I the only one who feels like I should be walking with a cane every time I see the phrase "advanced maternal age" on my file sheets?
Oh you are all young! I'm 40 and will be 41 when this one is born! I am certainly feeling it more this time round, get sooo tired. I was 34 when I had my 1st daughter and lost my 2nd daughter when I was 38. Good luck everyone x
