I am 6-6 1/2 weeks pregnant with #2 after ttc for 2 years. I will be 37 in December. I am super nervous because I lost 2 pregnancies before I had my son in Jan 2012.
Hope everything is going well for you!
I had my son at 36 going on 37. We had been trying for almost 4 years and had had 2 failed IVF rounds but then got pregnant a year later naturally. My pregnancy was smooth, the birth was natural, I breast fed him for 20 months and everything was fine. I got pregnant as soon as I stopped breastfeeding him but we lost it.
Age is nothing to worry about. It's how healthy we are that should be a concern. My doctor said that I still have 2 good years ahead of fertility and shouldn't worry about anomalies.
I don't know much but I would say relax and enjoy it.
Hi ladies, pregnant with 2nd I just had my IUD removed in Jan and it took 10 months to get pregnant. I will be 37.5 when baby comes, had my first 2 weeks after I turned 34. I am so tired this time around with having a toddler and being a few years older, I will be 12 weeks on Sunday have a Doppler so can listen to the heartbeat and finally found it Monday which makes me a lot less nervous, but I do worry.
I will be 36.5 when I have this second baby next year. I had my first at almost 31 so its been a very long while lol. I got knocked up this time on the first try - I truly hope that all goes well. Good luck everyone!!
Hey ladies, Happy to join you all ! I will be turning 36 this august. Just 5 weeks now , due with my 2nd one. Had him when i was 31 so it been 4 yrs ! i am very excited to have a sibling for my older boy , they truly say 1st one is for you , 2nd one is for the 1st one Good Luck to All !!
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!
