  • You hope she has an UNeventful pregnancy? lol!!! I think you meant eventful, right? or either you were being rude...not sure.

  • anonymous, I think considering the poster's age of 55, she meant a safe, uneventful pregnancy. As in no complications or worries.

  • I had my first one at 23, second at 25, third at 27, fourth at 33 and fifth at 43. I lost weight with the first four very easy...but that last one! ;) I have sleep apnea...just found out at 47....and most likely why the weight did not leave. I have been blessed with five healthy, smart, beautiful and wonderful kids.... I did have to be on bed rest for most of the last one....blood pressure was out of control.... but healthy babies are possible at a later age :D
