The first birth at 35 years old is not uncommon now. Although such women are still referred to by the Soviet as the old-born. Doctors intimidate with dire consequences, prescribe extra examinations.
When my doctor found out that I was 35, my doctor asked the question: How have you not yet given birth? What did you do before? And when she learned that her husband was 40, she said: Do you know what an old sperm cell is?
I must admit, I stood this test with honor. I knew in advance that everything would end well. Yes, I am 35 years old, but in the mirror a young lady looks at me, energetic and self-confident.
I immediately decided that I would strictly follow all the advice of doctors. I often saw 20-year-old moms with a cigarette in their hands, who did not want to limit themselves to sexual intercourse, languishing languidly from the difficulties of pregnancy. I realized that in 35 you treat everything differently. We prepared for pregnancy in advance, took vitamins and led a healthy lifestyle.
I stopped worrying that I was aging, when I realized that I was not the only one. A modern woman takes her life, career, life creation seriously. Therefore, the child is solved when it is fully held. This is probably correct. Because when a child appears, she relies more on herself, rather than trying to shove her grandmothers and acquaintances.
So, my test showed two strips, the gynecologist confirmed my pregnancy, and I began to take my interesting position seriously. I developed the daily regimen, regularly took all the medicines by the hour and tried to learn as much as possible about pregnancy, childbirth and the lives of young children from magazines, books and TV shows. I fully devoted myself to my new position.
But no matter how you prepare for childbirth, it all starts unexpectedly. I was not going to give birth at all when I realized that the process had already begun. At first I was scared, and then I realized that I had to pull myself together and believe that everything would end well. I thought that everyone was interested in the good outcome of my birth. Since my child has decided that it is already time for him to be born, it means that he will try and do it. And my task is to help him.
Of course, the situation is not easy. I had to work hard, scream, hear a lot of interesting replicas of the nurses, such as hurts? And what did you think? You came to give birth!
And finally, the happiest moment – I saw my child, heard his cry and tried to give him a breast. From that moment my life was filled with real meaning. This is just an indescribable happiness when you wake up and feel how your baby is sleeping nearby.
I am a real mom
Do I regret not giving birth before? My answer is no. It seems to me that a young mommy cannot truly appreciate the full value of the birth of a little person. When we are twenty, we think more about ourselves, about shape and entertainment. And the little man may seem to be a hindrance and an obstacle. In 35 it is more difficult to give birth, but the child becomes the meaning of life, you see your future in it, you understand the high responsibility for its development, life, health.
Now my baby is bathed in care and attention. And the toast to the old spermatozoid became our favorite during friendly feasts.
