1) keep to the rule of not telling anyone until you get out of your first trimester
2) No real difference beyond realizing you really are an adult and having less energy than you did when you were in your 20s
3) I had morning sickness pretty much up until the day I delivered both of my GIRLS
I had my first at 20, my second at 35. The biggest difference for me was being more tired. I didn't have morning sickness with either one.
I would like you to read this article and get more information about pregnancy
Congrats!! I'm 31 also but had my daughter at 21...soooo no advice because I've never been in your shoes! Wish I would have waited though!
When I had my first I was 25 and now I am 33, going on 34 and just had my 2nd. Pregnancy wise I had morning sickness both times. I was just as tired both times........however it was easier with the first because I could just nap....this last time I had a 7 year old to take care of! I agree with waiting to tell people. But I believe that no matter how old you are.....when I was 24 my 1st pregnancy ended in miscarriage and it was the hardest thing having to explain to those I told that I wasn't pregnant anymore! I had morning sickness all day with both.....but it was different...my 1st I felt like I would get sick if I ate anything....so I munched on crackers and drank slimfast shakes (figured I would at least get vitamins andsuch from those)...luckily it stopped around 13 weeks and then I ate everything and gained a bunch of weight :) This last pregnancy my sickness occured if I didn't eat......I had to eat first thing when I woke and keep eating a little bit all day......if my stomach got hungry, that's when I felt sick! I will say that when it comes to actually taking care of the baby.....I have loads more patience now at 33 then I did at 25......I'm not sure if its age or the fact its my second, but I am much more tolerant of the crying fits then I was at 25.
Congrats, and best wishes!
