35+ Moms with new babies



Hi Ladies,

I finally got a positive pregnancy test for #3 after 2 years of trying. LOL  It certainly took longer than the first 2.  I'm feeling relatively well save for Guerilla Nausea that likes to sneak up on me. 

A significant increase in overall fatigue is the only noticeable difference from my pregnancies at 33 and 35 so far, but I'm only 9 weeks along, so there's still time. LOL

Anyone else find themselves expecting again, by plan or by surprise?  Any differences for you?

LOL, I thought I'd have more energy since my kids are bigger (3 and 5) and a bit more independent... but man... there are days where I get out of bed, make breakfast and by 2 hours in am desparate for a nap! I'm 38 :D.

LOL, good luck! I definately didn't expect it to take 2 years of trying... I got pregnant after about 5-6 mos of trying with my 2 little girls.

Good Luck!!!

My oldest 8 were easy, 9 and 10 were c-sections. I was 45 when #10 was born. I still have not lost the weight, she will be 2 in a few weeks. Time to get outside and move more? We had so much fun at the playground Monday, the kids had a day off from school. I need to go every nice day I don't work with my 4 1/2 and 2 yr old. Bonus is the 2 yr old may take a nap when we get home...

LOL, more power to you for losing the wieght with the first 8 or 9... I went home from the hospital 8 lbs lighter with my first one... she weighed 9 lbs 10 oz. LOL!

I haven't managed to budge the weight at all, no matter how strict the diet (though granted, when nursing, my supply was always iffy anyway so I was paranoid to try dieting until my second weened at 2.5)

You have amazing energy... I have only 2, one of whom's in preschool 6 hours of the day (she naps better there than at home) and I'm still completely dragging by early afternoon.

Park is fantastic for getting them worn out... my issue is I'm usually worn out then too. LOL :)
