Being pregnant at 31 is no fun. Jason and I were married seven years before we had our first son, Conley. I was 27 for the latter part of my pregnancy, and I can attest that four years can make a big difference.
The crazy thing is that 31 is not that old for having babies anymore. My mother had her youngest at 40, though it was not planned. I now wonder how she ever survived.
Now, with improved fertility drugs and what I would call some women’s crazy notions, the childbirth age is being extended up into the 40s and sometimes the 50s. It is especially crazy to me since the drugs that allow them to conceive often also cause multiple births. Being 55 years old and pregnant with twins does not sound anything like fun to me.
