“Older moms”...does this article resonate with you?

If I had a baby in my 20s my mom would have keeled over. I was expected to go to college and launch a career. Then suddenly I was 30 and needed to find a husband and have babies by 35. I mean if you think about it, there’s a very small window when it’s both socially and medically acceptable for women to have kids.

I'm so glad to hear more stories of us older moms. Age can be a choice. I want another one after having our first. Am so loving it, but was/am concerned about waiting to much longer.

Geriatric and proud! I had babies at 37 and 41. I’m 43 now and feel like I have better wisdom and resources to take care of them. My only regret is that I will not be around for most of their adult lives.

Amen! I feel so much better now than if I had our little guy when we were younger. Its like he'll get the better version of me rather than the younger.

Check out "Fortyish mommas club" on Facebook. A new community just for us 40(ish) baby mommies (35+). A closed group to connect with other "mature" mothers.

So 36 is OK. I did feel very old at the doc's office, especially with the extra monitoring. But outside of there, the public could hardly see my belly and thought I was way younger.
