I was wondering how many mothers think that its easier when they have there kids in there 30s rather then in there 20s? I am soon to be 31 and about to have a little girl. I noticed my last preg I was 28 and my body took it way harder then when I had my first son at 22 and now at 30 my body is always tired and I feel drained like this one is just taking everything out of me. I was wondering if any other moms found it harder to be prego in there 30s

I'm 36 (and this is my first). I'm totally dying over here :) Sleep schedule is WAY off and I'm feeling like I've been hit with a ton of bricks :) I'm curious to hear what others have to say about this issue. Will baby #2 be harder on my body too?

I was 26 and 30 when me boys were born. Both pregnancies were pretty easy. With my first I had major gallbladder issues. With my second I had plantar fasciitis issues. The sleep was hardest with the second.

I had my oldest at 20, I definately had more energy then. I didn't have my second until 35 and I'm now pregnant again at 37. I feel more run down this time than I even did with my last but a lot of that is probably cause I'm chasing a toddler around all day.

My body definately took it better in my 20`s than in my 30`s my dd was born when i was 23, ds1 at 28, and ds2 31, ds1 was harder overall than dd, but the third felt like it was killing me.

I had my son at 23 and my daughter at 30.... My first pregnancy was much easier on my body. The 2nd time around I was much more achy and tired all the time. My actual delivery the 2nd time was much easier though but I think it's because I went into labor naturally instead of being induced

Physically it's hard. But I was more mentally prepared

that's what i've heard from many mom's in there 30's is that they were mentally ready by that time vs 20's

Quoting e-doolittle:

I had my 3 in my teens and my 20s. I wish I would have waited until my late 20s early 30s to start having children because of being more financially stable after the age of 25. Although I cannot speak to "easier on the body" I had issues with all of my pregnancies.
