I've never felt so good in my life!! All this malarkey about "older" mom's is just a bunch of hooey! Despite being heavier than in past pregnancies (& having it during my third pregnancy) I've gotten the all clear and don't have gestational diabetes. I've not gained any weight yet, either! Baby has no markers for Downs, perfect amount of amniotic fluid, just perfect, perfect, perfect!! I did have a mishap when I was around 18 weeks, where I was contracting after doing too much during the day, and the doctor said there's no way I'll make it to 40 weeks. Since then, I've learned to listen to Baby better, and rest when I'm tired and whatnot.
People remark all the time about how huge I am. Gets me down sometimes when I feel so good, otherwise. And I must've been wearing clothes that were ill fitting to begin with, because I still haven't needed to buy maternity clothes - other than new bras, of course! Baby rolls and kicks constantly, and my husband and children are constantly rubbing, patting, and talking to my tummy - I just absolutely love life right now!!
I am 44 and getting close to delivery. I wish I could say I felt great, but I feel horrible!!!
I didn't start really feeling bad until around week 28 and it has gone downhill from there! My son is very excited! He is 7 and has been waiting a long time for a sibling.
Congrats again and I wish you continued good health!
Doh! Sorry you're not feeling so great now, and believe me, I'm waiting for that shoe to drop! I fully realize that from here on out, the Baby is going to grow and grow and GROW!! If I'm big now, wait until I'm 30 weeks...lol....I'll probably be posting on here how uncomfortable and miserable I am. When I do, point me to this post!
Truthfully, I still wake up every morning reeling with the fact that I'm pregnant. I cannot believe my good fortune after waiting so long to be pregnant again. I have a feeling even after I deliver, I'll look at my Baby and wonder who's it is, because I had given up all hope of ever having a Baby again!!
