Feeling like the oldest mum on the block. I'm 40 something this year with a 19 month old and a 5 year old doing their best the keep me young/age me prematurely (depending on what sort of day I'm having)

When you all say older mum, what do you mean?

Please don't tell me you're all 35...

Hi All. In my case Hester , pushing mid 40's. Not that I mind too much, just gets a little harder to find other mums that I have stuff in common with.

Hi All,

I'm down on the South Coast, 45 (46on the 28th! eek!)with a 9 year old.

This is my 2nd family, 1st 2 are grown up 24 and 22 and I'm a granny too!

Being a granny is a damn sight more fun than being a mum! Mainly because I can ignore the midnight crying and hand DGD back when she crys/pukes/smells!

hester Wed 07-Mar-07 22:29:18

That's a relief, I thought I might be the only fortysomething. I'm coming up to 43, and my dd is 16 months...

You'd have thought not Cat but I was treated as if I was over the hill by the medical proffesion when I fell pregnant with dd (and I was only 37 then!) and I did find that quite a few of the much younger parents at toddler groups seems to think I was a bit old and not up for nights out etc.

It's not too bad now but mainly because a lot of the parents at dd's school are older parents (though I think I'm the oldest for her class!)

hello littlemisssensible I too live on the South Coast, was pg at 39 with my now 20 yr old (second marriage) and have 2 gc. Nice to know I'm not uniquely freaky

ScottishThistle Thu 08-Mar-07 10:23:54

Just out of interest what age is now classed as an older Mum?

In my home Town, at 34 (if I was a pregnant) I would be classed as an older Mum!

Fauve Thu 08-Mar-07 10:25:33

I haven't got any gc, but I am really very old. I'm in London, but sarf of the river.

batters Thu 08-Mar-07 10:43:16

cam, my darling, no you weren't pregnant at 39 with your now 20 year old!!

Tiggiwinkle Thu 08-Mar-07 10:54:25

I am like Auntymandy-quite young when I started but kept on till I was definitely an older mother! I live in south-east London: my eldest will be 26 this year and youngest is just 8!

CAMdenPalace1981 Thu 08-Mar-07 11:13:35

How did that happen Batters, I meant 10 year old of course, must be me arfritic fingers

Steppy1 Thu 08-Mar-07 14:24:45

suedonim Thu 08-Mar-07 15:57:05
