I get that question too.  I'm nearly 32 and on my fourth child.  I wasn't even "that young" with my first at 27.  And I know I don't look young - I don't get carded anymore.

About the urge to push... it's possible to have a "break" between transition and the urge to push.  In my first labor, I had this happen.  I'm 90% sure I was 10 CM when I got in the car to leave the...

I always level off at the end.  Usually by the time I deliver, I'm down a few from my "peak" weight.  I would report the weight you have and not stress it.
