I'm 39 years old.
I'm expecting my 4th baby.
My EDD is the 20th October 04.
I'm expecting a boy this time.
I'm calling him Bobby Greg.
I have a 23 y/o son Daniel.
A 3 1/2 hour labour on my 16th Birthday.
A 13 y/o daughter Sharee.
A 40 minute labour.
And a 8 y/o daughter Sally.
A 15 minute labour.
I have had Sciatica, Anima, Nose bleeds, cramps in legs and Dehydration and I'm tired all the time.
He has been kicking since 17 weeks.
I think he might be a kick boxer.
The baby's head has been engaged since 32 weeks and the pressure in my bowel is unbelievable.
I feel like he is going to come out any minute.
All my labours have started with pressure in the bowel first, then my waters broke and then a few contractions and then my baby is born.
I would like to know how other mum's 35+ pregnancies are going.
Do you think it is harder when you are older?
What are your experiences during your pregnancy?
