I had my baby at 38 she is 12 months now I'm 39. I have a 16 year old and for 15 years I thought I was only having one child and then my 2 d baby came! But just eat as healthy as possible take your prenatals and enjoy every moment it goes by fast!

Congratulations and best of luck! My youngest of three just turned 7 months. I am 36. My husband has always said and continues to say he 5 more in addition to the 3 we already have but will settle for 3 more. As if he is the one pushing them out lol! Best of luck I don't know that I can do it again

Yes, congratulations, Liz!!! This is such a journey you’ve already been on, and its only going to get more interesting and rewarding! One thing I recommend as an older mom is to seek out ways now to strengthen some of the muscles we don’t really pay as much attention to until postpartum. I.e., I had the hardest time with neck and shoulder pain from all of the looking down in those initial months (feeding, changing, admiring, etc). Another that still is giving me a lil grief 2 years postpartum is my pelvic floor muscles. My son was head down pushing on mine the back half of the pregnancy and with age, it’s harder to get those muscles to spring back after birth. Everyone is different and has a different experience, but those are just a couple of things I wish I’d have known earlier. All in all, just try to take it all in and enjoy the ride, and get comfortable reaching out for help- I called my OB office all the time with random concerns and had recent mama friends on speed dial :)
