  • I'm feeling pains in ways that I haven't before. When I gain weight it packs on in different areas now.

  • I actually looked better in my early 30s than I had ever looked in my life! Now at 37 I can see some fine lines around my eyes and a few gray hairs. It took longer to get my body back after my last baby too (she's 8 months) - I lost the weight quickly but my body didn't bounce back as quickly. Other than that, I haven't noticed much but my mom keeps telling me my metabolism will eventually slow down.

  • Your baby is 8months now? Funny i started to get gray hair when i was 24. Every thing seems the same and i dont feel my age or look it. I'll be 33 this year. Some people dont beleave me when i tell them my age or i have four kids.

  • Yes, she's 8 months now. She's my 5th and people are always amazed that I have 5 - we ate at Chick Fil A tonight the lady at the table next to us kept saying she couldn't believe I had 5! I was a manager at a restaurant when I was in my early 30s and most of the servers thought I was fairly close to their age which was funny to me considering they were mostly in their early 20s. But my mom is thin, looks young and at 62 still isn't completely gray. Hoping I have her good genes on my side!

  • I'm mid-30s, have a 6 month old and I also feel like it took longer for my body to bounce back. I have pretty much a full head of gray, but I dye my hair. Started getting strands of gray in 6th grade. Yikes! I notice more lines on my face, when I smile especially. Overall, my body's not shutting down, I'm not falling apart yet!

  • See you moms are in your 30's too and have young one that goes back to one of my other questions about when should we stop having kids what age?
