do you feel differently about being pregnant now that you are a little older?

I think I am more mature now than I was when I was pregnant with Jeremy. I wasn't really immature with him but I have grown up some. Plus, we are in better shape financially now and I have a little more experience with being a mom. I am really excited about this being our last pregnancy and want to enjoy every minute of it.

My fiest was an adoption and I was young and he was older, I got him when he was 5 1/2 so he was born when I was 16. Even though I was not pregnant raising him was a huge difference from the ones I an raising now.

My first pregnancy I was clueless, Ii had no idea all the stuff that could go wrong. My second pregnancy almost two years ago I felt great, invincible even, this time not so much. I feel older tireder... more in awe between my 20 month old and this baby I had three losses in 6 months.

I feel more mature , more patient. I am better off financially then when I had my girls , now I own a home with plenty of room for one or two more children , have a new mini van, I am much more prepared for a baby now. then I was in my 20's or 30's.

I was 20 and 24 with the girls. Both pregnancies were aweful for me. I just remember feeling so bad all the time.

The first my ex husband was gone by 3 months so I had great family but no husband. The 2nd ex husband was pretty jerky by the end of the pg.

This time I feel so much better! I have a great husband, we are financially ok, I am tired here at the end but it has been a great pregnancy. I am glad this happened. I am glad that I was young and crazy with my two girls and I am happy that as they grow up and out on me I will have this little guy.
