If you have had a baby after reaching your 40`s........Was it harder then you expected? How was your pregnancy(s)?

I`m 40...Almost 41. I hope I will experience having a little one in my 40`s.
I had my 3 older kids when I was young. It was very easy & fulfilling! I LOVE BEING A MOM!

We adopted Brian when I was 40, had Julia when I was 41, then had Kira when I was 44.

Turning 40 seems to have stopped my fertility problems!!

As far as my pregnancys went: my 1st trimesters were not pleasant, with lots of morning sickness. But after that it was fine. I worked full time for the 1st-- teaching math, so I was on my feet at the board all day. I've got to admit that the 2nd was a lot easier physically, since I was a SAHM by then and took it easier. (But then again, my dad was in hospice for that pregnancy, and died 2 weeks before Kira was born, so there was a whole different stress level there.)

I don't know: extraordinary considerations aside, I think it goes the way it goes (at least once you actually become pregnant) . I'm not sure that age... or at least 40... has as much to do with how you feel as your general health, weight, and things of that nature.
