I'm 43 & 9 weeks pregnant, looking 5 months. Trying hard not let let any1 no i'm pregnant but using hairs elastics to fasten work trousers & wearing maternity trousers outside work. This I can deal with but the exhaustion is wearing me out.
Never in my life have I felt so tired as I do right now & my head/eyes ache perminantly. Not sure if its my age as I was never this tired with my last 2 pregnancies. My girls are 21 & 19yrs.
I've now read that older moms have a higher chance of twins & I'm starting to wonder if this is the case. My moods are terrible & I'm running on a very short fuse. My breasts have been so sore since 2 weeks before I missed my period.
My poor partner (this is his 1st) says he wouldn't have bothered if he knew it would effect me like this as he's worried for me. My other pregnancies we so easy & apart from perminantly feeling sick but being constantly hungry this aint so bad. Just need some energy. No matter how much sleep I get & boy am I sleeping now. I never seem to feel awake or like I have slept.
Is this my age or should I be thinking of the possibility of twins?? There are 8 sets that I know of on my moms side :/
