Almost 30...

Okay ladies I need some advice here. I'm almost 30 years old and just recently found out I was pregnant with my second child. I'm not really freaking out over the whole pregnancy because I'm a grown adult and I'm stable and money wise I'm able to care for the child. My thing is, I have a 7 year old which would mean I was in my early (very early) 20's when I had her. I do not remember the pregnancy being so rough in the being. Now that I'm pregnant all I want to do is lay in bed every single day. I have no energy at all, I feel terrible every single day, I have no desire to eat and have to force myself to eat three meals a day. Its almost like I'm in a stage of depression and there is know reason that I would be depressed, I'm just saying it sort of seems that way. Have any of you mothers gotten pregnant and you're older now? and it wasn't your first child? Did you happen to have the same experience that I am having? Is this because I'm getting older? I know the older a woman gets the harder it is for her to carry a child, but I can't believe the tow its taken on me already and I'm know where near even being out of my first trimester.

Pregnancy is different for everyone and can be for every one. For me my second (I was 33 years old) was my hardest on me. My third when I was 36 years old was my best pregnancy.

I'm 30 an found out that I am due in February. My daughter turns 8 in October. An I am exhausted after what feels like doing little or nothing. Most everything makes me nauseous but I wouldn't change it for the world I lost my twin girls at almost 21 weeks in November. The worst now is constant mood swings. Try keeping a journal or talking to someone you trust.

Every pregnancy can be different regardless of age.

I have a 6 yo and a 4 yo. I am 30. My daughter will be 7 in nov. I am 36 weeks pregnant with our third.

This pregnancy has been completely different from my first 2! On the plus side, no morning sickness and I have had very little to NO swelling in my feet and hands. Pretty amazing.
However, I did experience some extreme fatigue in my first tri, and am getting it again, along with a touch of insomnia at night (figures, right?!). I also had bleeding in my first tri, which was scary since I never had that before.

Anyways, second tri was fabulous. I had my normal energy and I even kept up my workouts. I started to fade again around 32-33 weeks & get fatigued easily now.
This pregnancy has been fabulous the majority of the time! I also have not gained nearly as much weight.

I think we are older and wiser this time around and know what we like and don't like & listen to our bodies more .
