How many of us are pregnant and over 30? I’m 33 and I have a 14 year old daughter and I can surely say that this pregnancy is wayyyyy more complicated than the one with my daughter. I’m thinking it’s bc my body is soooo different.
Anyone else preggo and over 30? How’s it going? Is this your 2nd or more child? How does it compare to the pregnancies before 30?

I am going to follow your pregnancy because if all goes as planned this will be me come August. I will be 33 in August and my oldest will be 12. So please post often 🙂 I am a little nervous how these old bones will handle it 😛

I can’t compare it to anything because this is my first pregnancy at 33. But I feel good 🙂 I had all day morning sickness during the first trimester, but I feel great now. And prenatal yoga is helping my old bones

I had my first daughter at 26 and then gave birth to my second daughter 4 months ago at 34. Although both pregnancies were without complications, I just felt so much more worn out the second time around! Definitely easier when I was in my 20’s! The good thing is I have an 8 year old helper who is anxious to lend mommy a hand.

I’ve been in my 30’s for both my pregnancies and haven’t thought twice about it. I still feel 24 🙂
With Roo I was 31 when I got pregnant and 32 when he was born. This time I’m 33 and will have just turned 34 when the little one is born. My first 1/2’s aren’t easy but that’s because I have rough morning/all day sickness and heartburn well into the 2nd tri. With Roo the 2nd half was a breeze and I had a quick no meds delivery. Crossing my fingers for the same this time. Unless of course the MS wants to stop early…. like ANY DAY NOW! 🙂
So far I’m actually much more active with this preganancy keeping up with my gym routine and everything. Even if I do puke after every workout 🙂 Part of that is having to be up and at em with a 16 month old. Last time with no responisbility I could waste the day away on the couch!

I am 31 and my bff is 24 we are due 4 days apart from each other. I know that everyone is different, but she is having such an easy pregnancy compared to mine. I have been wondering if it’s an age thing.

My first pregnancy will be in my 30s (God willing)! I just turned 30 2 weeks ago and we’ll be trying 6 months from now. If all goes well, I’ll have my first baby when I’m 31.

whoooot!!!! 32 in the house, Darling Husband and I are expecting our first. Our little one will be here when I am 33 and Darling Husband will be 35.
I had a tough time getting pregnant but I am having a pretty easy pregnancy (so far) *Knocks on every single piece of wood around me*

I’m 30 and pregnant with my first. I can definitely say that pregnancy has not been easy for me… although I’ve been lucky to be free of any scary complications so far. This is the right time for us to have kids, but I can’t help but wonder if pregnancy would have been easier when I was younger.

I’m 30 and pregnant with my second…and I’m SOOO much more tired this time around. I don’t remember being so exhausted with my daughter, but I was very young when I had her (19), so I’m sure my body is much different than it was 11 years ago!

Well Im so glad I started this thread. It really seems like every woman is totally different. I have had horrible a.m. sickness alllll day long. Im 21 weeks and it’s just now starting to get a tad bit better. And even though I cant eat much, I’m gaining a TON of weight. I have zero energy. None whatsoever. Much different than when I was younger and pregnant. I have some other complications and they hv put me on modified bed rest. It’s so early so I’m following the Dr’s orders to the letter. Hopefully I can get off of it for a bit. My first tri was sooooo hard and I’m into the 2nd. But I’m staying hopeful that it gets better soon!

I’m 31 and pregnant with our first (will be almost 32 when the baby is born) and Darling Husband will be 31 when the baby is born. We got pregnant after 3 months of trying, but miscarried, then got pregnant again on cycle 4 post-miscarriage. It took longer than I wanted but all in all I think we were pretty lucky.
My pregnancy has actually been pretty easy so far and I’m 18.5 weeks (knocks on wood). I didn’t have any morning sickness and had about 2 days of nausea in the first trimester – the only symptoms I really had was sore boobs and crazy hunger! I mean, I was tired, but nothing like what some of the other women on these boards talk about. I have gained probably 5 lbs and haven’t had any complicatiions yet – I feel good and am still working out, working full time, and am active. I have some low back pain, had a hemmeroid, and also was on antibiotics b/c I tested early for group B strep. But, I don’t associate those minor issues with being an “older” mom. Things can always change, but it hasn’t been nearly as bad as I thought it would be!

I’m 31 and almost 6 weeks pregnant. Like @winniewolf: my symptoms haven’t been severe as others either. I’m more tired than before. During a walk with my dad this past weekend, I just wanted to sleep and nap. My nausea comes in waves. Only recently, I’ve been gagging on certain smells. My breasts are very sore. If anything, I practically google what I can and can’t consume on a daily basis since this is all new ground for me. I hate probiotic yogurt, but it’s supposed to help with the Ph balance in vagina where it’s been a bit itchy for me. So, right now, I just can’t wait until my first appointment on January 12th in hopes of seeing a heartbeat and hoping that we’re on track for a successful pregnancy.

Holla! I’m almost 38 and Darling Husband is 36. This is our first and we are just over 10w along. It has been a challenging time so far, and I generally feel like crap. I am just happy I am not throwing up all the time and really thrilled that we were so lucky to conceive so quickly.
