I'm 40, 12th pregnancy of which 3 have been losses.

Just curious if there are some other older moms out there.

I'm 37. I don't feel old but I know that pregnancy-wise I might as well have a foot in the grave! UGH!

I'm 36 in Feb, does that count as older? I guess it does I just don't feel that way (except of course in the mornings after my daughter has been up for a couple of hours in the night - then I feel 10001)

I'm 34, but will be 35 in another 15 days. But I don't feel old!

One of the things I love about my midwife is that she doesn't seem to think my age is a big deal. The OB I saw during my miscarriage could not stop harping on my age : Very annoying since I'm still 21 in my head

Guess I am 'older' too--I am 36, though I don't feel any older than when I had my first at 19! I am hoping my age won't be a 'big deal' to my midwife, and I bet it won't.

I am 34, will be 35 when this baby is born. I don't feel old, but my OB did catagorize me as "advanced maternal age".

Hi, I'm 39. My baby's due around my 40th birthday. What a present, eh? I loe my midwife too! She hasn't said a word about my age. The sOB when my son was born harped on it all the time. I don't feel this old. Probably because my DH is 11 years younger than me. People always act shocked when they find out how old I am. I guess they all thought we were the same age.
