Age has never really bothered me, but now we have decided to try for number 2 it has just dawned on me that even if I was to get a now I would still be 35 by the time the baby is here..... As if I was stressing enough and it is only our 1st month of ttc.......aaaaarrrggghhhhh

I turned 35 3months after my BFP. I also have several friends our age who are currently pregnant. All of us have healthy buns in our ovens. Don't stress. 2 of my girlfriends are having symptom free pregnancies, I'm so jealous! This pregnancy has been brutal to me but it could be because I'm having a girl this time around. Good luck to you! :babydust:

I was lucky first time around with no symptoms or anything, I suffered a little with heartburn but other than that I carried on as normal. Only problem I had was baby was small and I had to be induced at 38 weeks but I managed to work up until the day before. I just know that this one am sure will not be so easy.

Hi I'm 36 and ttc number 2. Am very nervous that it may take ages or not happen at all due to my age. This is our 2nd month ttc.

Hiya
Im 34 and we'r in our 3rd month of ttc #2. It took us 3 months to get pregnant with ds so in a way i think im putting pressure on myself that this time will be the same and its this month we get our bfp!
Silly i know and especially silly as iv had a sickness bug all week and pretty sure i missed my o
Age really doesnt seem to be an issue around here tho, i thought id be the oldest in my ante natal classes at 33 but im now friends with 5 other women that i met there, youngest is 29 and the oldest is 36 so all really similar.
Good luck and babydust to all of you and lets see some mid 30s bfp's very soon
Xxx

My baby sister was a surprise, and my mom gave birth to her just 2 months before her 36th birthday. So it's totally possible to have a healthy baby in your mid 30s!

Hello! I am also 34 and my hubby and I are thinking about trying for #2 baby....I am nervous not just about my age, but am also about 60 lbs overweight...had a tough pregnancy with my first with lots of swelling and heartburn and weight gain, but was otherwise healthy...just wish I had lost more weight! My doc said she would prefer me yoUnger rather than skinnier so that's why I am here!

Maybe we could be buddies? I think we will be ttc in mid November...

Am sure you will be fine and you will get your bfp. We just have to remind ourselves that it is still early days of ttc... As we can see we are not alone their are others in the same position.
Mspotter.... Ah, why do we do that, put pressure on ourselves. My 1st was a complete surprise we wasnt even ttc, so think i was hoping i would fall straight away, only now its sunk in that its most likely not going to happen that way Same around here aswell, quite a few older mum's around.

Ah lew32, I know a few people that have been overweight while carrying and have had no problem what so ever so am sure all will be fine. Even better if the doc's not worried about it.

Open to anyone who wants to buddy up
Fairy dust all round. X
