Hi Ladies! I have a question for those of you that were pregnant younger and then again older. I had my first DD when I was 27 and my twins at 30. Here I am at almost 42 and my experience so far is SO different! I know that "every pregnancy is different", but it wasn't really for me before. My symptoms were more intense the second time around because I was having twins. (Yay, hormones.) But it was very similar. This is way harder! I'm wondering if my age is influencing this. My other thought, which doesn't make much sense, is I wonder if a different partner makes any difference. Different chemistry? Anyone else experience things very differently?
Re: Differences between being pregnant younger and older
I can say that this is my 2nd AMA pregnancy and both have been pretty easy (like I threw up one time during my first and haven't yet with this one. I've also been able to keep up an active routine with both) so wouldn't say age has been a primary factor. But that's just one case that doesn't mean much.
I'm currently 39 and everything is pretty much the same except this time I have pain and bloating from bilateral ovarian cysts and I'm SO TIRED. I was tired with the other babies, but not like this. I'm 7 weeks and I just slept through a vacation. I could sleep 19 hours a day. I really hope this eases up soon.
I hope things get easier for you soon.
All boy singletons. Horrible morning sickness which I hope will go by 14 weeks.
