no it all depends on how you present yourself--if you are happy with yourself others pick up on this--be yourself and enjoy your child--if someone has a problem with that- they have an issue not you.

HEY!! I never even thought about that! I had my 6th child at 40 years old 13 years after my 5th. What a blessing he is!! Who cares what I look like....I've got a wonderful son who I am SO grateful for! 40 year old moms are alot more patient than 20 something year old moms! (a little more tired, but....)

No way! I've read some of this flower-power lady's stuff, and I've come to the conclusion that she is a bit crazy.

I am 57, my youngest of 5 boys is 17. I have enjoyed every minute of my life with all 5 boys, but I am really enjoying my life now that I am coming up to the "last" one in high school. I work as a sub, I play bunko once a month, a bowl on a league all fall, winter and spring. I enjoy traveling with my husband, and we can do it now that the kids are older, and 3 are out of the house. I really do not think I am unattractive, I am heavier then I was in my 30's or 40's. but my husband loves me and to me that is all I want. But I think it is the way you present yourself that makes you attractive. and I know that my kids (the kids I sub in middle school) think I am younger then I am. I don't know if they are sucking up, or really do think that. Any way it is how you look at yourself not how other people look at you.

Not sure what you mean. I had my 1st and only child at 45 (very healthy and free of birth defects). I heard a lot of negativity about the risks and possibly not being around when he gets older but no one even mentioned anything about beauty. I never have been what you would call a knock out beauty even when I was younger but I am healthy and "clean up" pretty good I am told. Most people think I am younger than 49. Never once heard anything about beauty or lack thereof being an issue since I have been a mom. As long as I can still turn my husband's head and am healthy, that is all I need.

My grandparents were in their 40s when both my parents were born and my husband and I were in our 40s when our daughter was born! We all just seem to age gracefully and enjoy our children to the fullest! BTW - All 4 of my grandparents were in their late 80s and early 90s when they passed away (I was in my 30s).
PS: I still think my husband is cute and he thinks the same of me! :)

Many friends thought I was joining their Grandmother Club and were shocked to hear that I was having another since I have a 23 and 20 year olds. At first it bothered me and then I thought who cares what they all think. If they are my true friends then they will support me and be as excited as I was. Somedays I feel old, but reality is you are only as old as you feel. Just because I'm 44 doesn't mean that I'm not beautiful inside and out!!

It all depends on how you feel about youself..some of us are in pretty good shape lol..and remember it's the only age group where births are on the rise..People should worry about their own happiness and not others perceptions. People like to judge and create drama they don't walk in our shoes ..
