Pregnancy Post 35: 4 Things You Should Know

pregnancy after 35

There are plenty of blogs and articles online warning of the risks of having a baby after the age of 35.

Ranging from trouble conceiving to a higher chance of having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality to experience postpartum complications, there seems to be no shortage of things for a woman in their late thirties to worry about! However, there are some things which most articles don’t mention that all pregnant women of a certain age experience.

You are guaranteed to tire of reading, hearing and talking about all the things that could potentially go wrong in your pregnancy! It’s true that everyone has an opinion on why you shouldn’t be pregnant above 35 and stories of people they know who had trouble. It’s far less common to hear stories about those who give birth over the age 35 to healthy and happy babies, with zero complications.

For some reason, you will begin to be grouped with women who want to have babies in their 40s and 50s. There’s nothing wrong with having a baby in your 40s and 50s, but it does definitely increase the risk of complications. Aged between 35-40, these risks are not so severe so it can be a tad frustrating being grouped with people who could potentially have children as old as you already!

Another thing you will experience is having to explain to people that having a baby after 35 is actually really awesome! Not only do you have financial security for you and your little one, you have definitely become more mature and have developed a better perspective on life!

Following on from this, there is a chance that you will feel like the ONLY woman ever to have become pregnant after 35! With everyone fixated on the negative risks of being pregnant later in life, you may feel like you’re the only one crazy enough to become pregnant after a certain age.

Needless to say, you will become annoyed and tired at hearing people mention the risks of pregnancy later in life, especially if they say those three words to describe you… advanced maternal age! But, just remember that there is nothing wrong with giving birth after 35 and pregnancy at any age is a wonderful thing.
