Just out of curiosity I am wondering if there are many of you on the pregnancy and babies site who are on their first baby and are aged 35 or over.
I am now around 10 weeks pregnant on my first and am aged 35. I don't in any way feel old in myself at all but it's just I am prob the last of all my friends now to get pregnant, most of them have kids aged 7 to 10 at this stage. Like I said I don't in any way feel old at all and am just curious really to see if anyone else is of similar age and on their first baby?
Congrats on your pregnancy.
For what it's worth, I'm due my first baby mid month and I'll be 41 at the end of the month.
I've had a dream pregnancy, thank God, no morning sickness, no pains or aches to speak of, no diabetes, baby is breech so I will likely have a cesarean but I'm not bothered about that so long as baby is okay!!
Excitedly awaiting our arrival!!
I was 33 on my first pregnancy, DD born soon after my 34th birthday. On this my second pregnancy, I was 35 getting pregnant and will be just 36 when babs born. Both pregnancies have been straightforward - actually this one has been a good bit easier than the first. The only downside (if you call it that) was that we wanted more than one baby so couldn't leave too long a gap between the pregnancies. I was quite stressed on the risks to the baby of me being older and how long it would take to get pregnant but i'm a worrier anyway - hospital have never raised my age as an issue. So far this baba looks really healthy thankfully. Also, I got pregnant first month trying on both so you never can tell.
I was just 36 when I got pregnant. 33 starting out TTC, but it turned out to be a slightly longer road than expected. Always wanted to have more than just one, so quite pleased with twins.
I'm 36, has taken quite a while, but finally am pg with our first
Aw lovely stories girls. So happy for you all.
