well, there are TTC and pregnant over 35 boards, so I thought I'd start a thread where maybe we can give each other support and share the joys of being a first time mum at an 'advanced age' I'll start. I think I can summarize my experience so far by saying that: I didn't expect: 1) to love my son sooo much I mean, I knew I'd love him, of course, but I didn't know how this new type of love would feel. It's such a pure, unconditional, immense love! 2) the first weeks/months to be sooo hard. Again, I knew they'd be difficult but I did not expect to feel in total limbo I'm not a very organised person anyway, but now it's caos, I feel sometimes have to choose between either having a nap, or a shower or breakfast! I thought that by now I'd be going everywhere with LO, but I can hardly leave the house. 3) to feel so sh*t physically! (I should say I am well over 35...). I pulled my back the other day lifting the car seat and is killing me! and the stitches still hurt too and last but not least, 4) to be ob BnB so much! anyone else?
