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.
Im 30 and just had my first☺️😍
I'm 32 with my 3rd
I’m 39 and 23+2 with my first
I am 35 having my second. I was 27 having my first left a big gap to ensure I concentrated buying a house and progress in my job. Xx
I’m 33 and having my first baby, 22 weeks due in June. I imagine it’s easier in some ways being younger and pregnant but there may be other challenges that one could face being younger vs older and more mature or financially set.
I'm 35 and had my second baby in November first child is 13 this year
Also 33 24 weeks pregnant. Undecided if i shall have another.
I'm 33 years old. 34 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I'm planning to have one more after
I’m 35, 26+2 having my first. Glad i waited. I enjoyed every bit of my twenties, now I’m ready to give my baby girl everything and all of me.
Enjoy and embrace the ups and downs of pregnancy
I’m 31 and having my first baby and I don’t plan on not having any more after him 😬💜

I am 33 having my last bb girl now
I'm 31 and 22 weeks with my first, I think its more common now as I know a lot of people my age that are pregnant/just had their first and most of my friends are in their late 20s/early 30s and still single
Am 31 and 3rd baby am naw 10 weeks
I’m 34 and pregnant with my second, sadly our first was stillborn, our little boy. I once over heard a conversation at work where some older women were saying there’s no way they would have left it until their thirties having kids. Well sometimes life doesn’t work out that way. I was 28 when we first decided we wanted to start trying, and 6 years later we have no child at home. You can have the best laid plans but life has a way of ruining plans 🤷♀️
Sorry. I wish you a positive 2nd pregnancy
I’m 38 and will be 39 haveing my second I’m 14+5 it’s been 20 years almost 😅 it’s been smooth the only reason why I’m high risk is because I’m type two diabetic but that’s being control well!!
And 12 weeks
I am 41
I'm 35 and having my first and honestly I'm glad I waited till my 30s. I feel mentally more ready for this than my 20 year old self would have been. My husband and I have been together a long time and we married in our 20s so we used this time to grow together, travel and get ourselves more stable. Now our lives are going to change again with this new life and we are nervous and excited.
I’m 35 and this is my first. I was busy building my empire before now and I don’t feel disadvantaged being older at all and more mentally and financially prepared for baby.
I’d my first at 36. I’m 39 and 33 weeks with my boy 🤗 you don’t have the energy of a 25 year old but over all you’ve more stamina. Your already used to spinning all the plates and being responsible for a shit load of stuff. You’ve traveled and got your education. You understand how finances work. Basically by this age you won’t miss partying or clubbing. Because you don’t feel like your missing out, it’s a lot easier mentally. You’re ready to hand your life over to your kid. Good luck darlin Xx
This is so true!
I really hope it will be I had my 1st at 17, 2nd at 20 and 3rd at 25 I found I had loads of energy, I’m now 36 and about 8 weeks, and freaking out and exhausted🤣
Turned 30 a month before I had my daughter. Will be having this baby a month before I turn 32 🤗
Yes! 10 weeks pregnant and I am 33 years old
I’m 13 weeks and can’t wait for Wednesday as I’ll be 14 weeks, 2nd trimester 🎉🥳
I’m having my second at 33 and I have noticed I’m much more tired and hungry this time round, but I had really bad morning sickness with my daughter that lasted the whole pregnancy
I think very healthy! I love organic everything, obviously trying to minimize stress, lots of dates, yoga (not hot:), hypnobirthing, positive guided meditations, prayer and knowing I have learned so much since I was younger. It doesn't matter what other ppl think
My first was 34 and I'm 37 and pregnant with the second
Healthy. Fit and having my first..
I'm 36 weeks on Monday.
I've had a pretty smooth pregnancy.
Felt slightly sick in beginning but wa never sick. But of itching through out and heartburn. No stretch makes..
I feel like I've had a really lucky one to be fair. Can't wait to meet my little girl now. 28d til I'm due xx
32 weeks on Wednesday next.
Good luck! I'm feeling well. Getting a bit heavier now.
Aww fantastic. Glad all is going well. I hope I will be 🍀soon 🤞🙏 x
I'm 41. I was too busy in my twenties and thirties. This is my first earth child. I started IVF at 39. I think, advice wise, get checked for TPO antibodies and antiphospholid syndrome. That's about it. Not age related.
I'm 41 and my husband 48. We're trying for our second child now. I hope it happens soon. How far are you now? Hope all is going well with it. X
I gave birth to my first daughter at 31 and my second at 34, both pregnancies were pretty good 🙂 I was quite sick at the beginning of both, but it did pass and then I felt much better.
Personally I think your 30's is a great time to have a baby!
I was definitely more tired and achy second time round, but I suppose my body had changed after my first pregnancy, plus I had another child to look after and I was a few years older! I guess it's just important to keep active and look after yourself!
Oh also, I read a hypnobirthing book during my second pregnancy (I didn't get round to signing up for a course) it really helped me to prepare for the birth and during labour 🙂
I’m 34 and pregnant!
I’m 36 and pregnant with my 4th, my youngest will be 12 when this one arrives, my eldest 20 🤦🏻♀️
First at 2 mo. shy of 35. Gonna be 37 for second.
Turned 37 a month after baby was born. Hes my IVF miracle!
I’m 38 and 27 weeks pregnant with my first baby. Pregnancy has been fine, I don’t think age is a massive factor. Some ladies have easy pregnancies and other dont!
I am 39, soon 40 with my second...
I'm 35 and expecting my first next week - it's completely normal I decided to build a career first so I could help provide the best set up for my baby financially and emotionally ready - I've had lots of fun and nice holidays and social life through my twenties now I'm enjoying being married and having my first baby and feel totally ready for it x
I always said i didnt want children past 30 lol im 32 in march and due my 3rd. What advice do you want? Ive not experienced it to be any different to my other pregnancies.. i had my 1st at 19 and my 2nd at 25 x
34 and had my third baby in November no problem x
Starting families in your 30’s is becoming more and more the norm, especially for women who put off starting families to focus on school. Everyone on my team at work is in their 30’s and either just had their first within the last year, or are currently pregnant. I’m 32, FTM (bio mom at least). There’s no age for when you’re ready.
Had a baby last year at 33. Pregnant again this year. Baby will be born when I'm 35!
I’m 34 and 19 weeks with my first. Will be 35 years old at her due date.
38 and 32 wks pregnant. This is my second. First was at 25. This one’s easier on me so far. What kind of advice are you looking for? There’s a group on peanut call Moms in their 30s, you can ask there too.
My i gave birth at 33 with my youngest who is nearly 3 xx
I’m 31 and pregnant with my first and only. I don’t really have any advice but simply take it one day at a time.
35 with my first 40 with my second and 43 with my third. Feel amazing and wouldn’t change anything for the world!
