Anyone in here in thier mid thirties and expecting thier first one?

Are there any moms to be in thier mid thirties and expecting thier first baby. I waited because I never really wanted to have kids with any of the guys I dated befor plus I couldn't see them being in my life for the long haul so I opted out. Until I meet my husband and I knew he was the one I was always looking for so I decided to have a baby. Just wondering if thiere are any moms to be out there who are getting a late start at having a baby?

  • I am not one of those moms. I am in my midthirties and I have 3 children. I do have lots of friends that waited until their midthirties to have children and I think it is great that you waited until you where ready.

    Good Luck with everything!

  • Im 28 I feel that since I live in UTAH that I am super late on starting. I have a very similar situation to yours when I met my niece and then I met my husband I wanted children it just took me longer to find what I wanted. congrats to you it is wonderful that you are expecting

  • I had my one and only at 36. My husband and I waited to have a family until we bought our house. Then we started trying.....for 8 years. Had I known it was going to be that way, we would have started trying sooner.
