Pregnancy in your 30's is no joke!
We are expecting baby #3 soon, God Willing, and to think that my tribe went from 1 to 3 in 3 years is crazy! But we're here and we're adjusting. What I can say is, this pregnancy now that I am 32 is 100% different than my pregnancy with my first at 24 years old. I'm sure many of you can attest to that. I feel like now that I'm a little older my body is starting to settle into relaxation mode, and what did I do, shake things up a bit.
Currently in the third trimester, at 32 weeks, and I feel EVERYTHING! Movements seem so forced, and less graceful causing so much discomfort. I've been sick this whole entire time, super tired, and very heavy feeling. I can't take away how much of a blessing it is to be able to experience pregnancy and child birth, but I can lie it's tough these days.
We had a gestational diabetes scare, cause I failed the 1-hour glucose test. That was horrific! To turn around and have to take the 3-hour test and results come back that my sugar was low. Like, huh?? Can somebody explain? There were other lab results that were all over the place due to this pregnancy that I never experienced before. I guess this baby said, "you are going to feel like one mom!"
We are getting closer to meeting day, and the anxiety is kicking in a full speed. I toss and turn all night not only because I can't seem to get comfortable, but because I'm worried about all the things I need to get done before baby comes.
To all my moms who had babies in their 30's, if you've had children prior was the pregnancy different? & if so, what were some things you noticed?
