I had my first baby days before I turned 41, and second baby is on the way... I'm due 2 weeks after I turn 43. I eat healthy and exercise a lot, and am super grateful for it. My pregnancies have been pain free (thanks to lots of yoga throughout!), no nausea or sickness (what a blessing), and I really focus my mind on empowering myself for birth, believing in all I can do and how wonderful baby will be. Focusing on the positive and not letting anxiety or fear creep in is HUGE. I believe I'm better prepared mentally, emotionally and even spiritually for pregnancy, birth and early motherhood for having done this at an older age, but that's just me of course. :) Good luck to you; it's an amazing experience for a woman at any age!
Had my first at 41. She’s 1.5 years old. I’m now 9 weeks pregnant with my second at 43 and have horrible nausea all day every day. But the body is pretty darn amazing.
Had my first at 40yrs old and just take care of yourself and don’t mind the “advanced age”, just ensure you are staying healthy as best as you can for the baby. Only opt in to the extra testing that they may suggest after you do your own research and confirm with your insurance about any extra costs. No one needs surprise bills with a new baby to care for. And don’t overthink your situation...you are as young as you feel.
I had my youngest at 35 x
Im turning 37 in August this year. Im currently pregnant with my 2nd child. I had my 1st, my daughter when I was 35. Take care of yourself.
