I guess I felt like it was normal for there to be more mature moms. On my new ddc, I asked how old everyone will be, and I'm the oldest I'll be 37 when this baby comes. And to think, we were going to wait 2 more years to try for our last. I feel even older when I thought it would be fun, a few weeks ago, to dye a streak of my hair blue. When my sil asked why my hair was blue, I said it sounded fun, and she said "that's a bit childish isn't it?"

Midlife crisis anyone?

Don't let your SIL get to you. My 50+ year old aunt still dyes her hair funky colors

Maybe some older moms to be will show up in the ddc as you get further along.

Awe, sweetie, you are not old at all! IRL I know more older moms than younger ones. I was actually surprised how young some of the people here are because I'm used to being the youngest in the group.

I've always been the youngest in any DDC and felt insecure about it

You are never to old to color your hair a fun color!
Don't let it bug you...You aren't old, by any means!

There is nothing wrong with dying your hair at any age! You should have responded with something like "Isn't that a bit old to be saying?" or something along those lines. I loved dying my hair, and once the grey start doing their thing I plan on doing some fun things.

Also, you look so young and pretty who could possibly suggest you look old! It's all about how you act.

I didn't realize there was an age limit on putting funky colors in your hair.......
Anyway, you're not old! There are women In their 40's having babies all the time so you're just a baby in the pregnancy world
If you want to feel old let's talk about how you'll be 55 before all your kids are old enough to be out of the house

That isn't even old. I have co-workers that choose funky colors for their hair and are much older than you are so don't let it get to you!

Don't you just hate when young people make you feel old?
I'll never forget the day the phlebotomist called me an "older mom" when I had Layla. I was twenty freaking nine.

Lol I'm older than Rachel! I'll be 42 in February. Your sister is just one of those people. She's jealous of you, if I remember some other incidences correctly. Don't let her get to you.

I will be 42 in December, still shop in the juniors department for cool clothes, just died my hair burgundy, and feel less old than I did at 30! You are not old, you are simply just more experienced .
