Mother Over 35 Years Old (Overview)

It is no longer unusual for women to wait until they are in their late 30s or early 40s to have their first child. Many women have successful pregnancies into their early 40s, but there are increased risks associated with later-age pregnancies.

My urine flow at night is very slow when i wake up to pee. Seems ok during the day i'm a 35 years old mother of 3. There is no pain, fullness after.?

My urine flow at night is very slow when i wake up to pee. Seems ok during the day i'm a 35 years old mother of 3. There is no pain, fullness after.?

Flow vs volume: The volume of the distended bladder can influence the force of urination. Your perception of a "slow" stream at night may just reflect a low voided volume. As a female, unless there are issues of urinary tract infection or incontinence, i would generally not be worried about force of urinary stream. ...Read more

I am 35 years old. My mother's sister died of breast cancer years ago. Am i at risk of getting this disease? My doctorsaid that I have mass in my left breast. Please help.

Very common problem : I advise you to see a breast surgeon for evaluation of the lump found by your doctor. After examination+/- ultrasound+/-needle biopsy, this dr. Should be able to determine the cause of this lump. Btw-- having an aunt with breast cancer (esp after menopause) does not significantly change your cancer risk. Actually, most breast cancers are environmental, not hereditary. ...Read more

My first baby is 2 years old and i'm working mother, should I have another baby now?

Personal Question: Are there other factors that worry you? Choosing when to have your next child is a very personal question. If you are a working mother, can you afford time off from work or daycare/babysitting for 2 children. Is your health good? Are you stressed? All of these are things to consider. Most important is to consult your spouse or significant other. ...Read more

My mother is 91 years old.She sees her image in the mirror.She askes me who the person is?

Dementia?: The same thing happens to me, and i'm only 55! i can't tell from your question whether this is the only cognitive problem she has (in which case she may just be unhappy that she's 91) or if she's having other cognitive problems or memory loss, in which case she may be developing dementia. If you're worried about dementia, you should have her evaluated for reversible or treatable causes. ...Read more

Itching face: This could be caused by a bunch of different things. If you are having any shortness of breath, trouble swallowing or fever go to the er. Otherwise could try an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec tonight. Get seen and evaluated. ...Read more

My mother-law is 86 years old. Her short term memory has significantly decreased. How fast does dimentia progress?

Very Variable: Sorry, but dementia types are so different and even vary greatly within a type that it's impossible to predict. Even overall health is not a strong predictor, but it can suggest the need for extra care. Have an evaluation by a neurologist - that may tell you more. It can be very difficult but sometimes people bear it well. A good geriatric specialist can teach and guide you all through this time. ...Read more

Yes: Your risks of having a down syndrome infant is increasing as you age, at 40-45 about 1%. Add that to a basic risk of 4% unexpected outcome at any age and your looking at 95% frequency of healthy outcome. It would be wise to discuss all the issues with your spouse and docs.If your basic health is good and you have the patience and desire for this extra work, do what you wish. ...Read more

My mother is 94 years old. She is now infirmed and weak. Almost bedridden. She finds it difficult to get up. What should we do?

Options: I believe the correct word is confined, not infirmed. There are three options. Have a physician visit to her home, send her to a local hospital or refer a hospice for the end of life care. ...Read more

I am 17 years old and i'm 174 cm tall, my mother is 161 cm,my beother-189 cm,my other brother is 175 cm and my father is 185 cm, am I done growing ?

I am 17 years old and i'm 174 cm tall, my mother is 161 cm,my beother-189 cm,my other brother is 175 cm and my father is 185 cm, am I done growing ?

Maybe: Your projected height from parental input is 161+185/2 plus 5 cm which would be 178. This genetic projection is a rough one at best, but was derived from thousands of cases. Most males stop growing at 16-17 while those who transition through puberty slower finish later.An x-ray of your wrist/hand could be examined for open growth centers.If present you will grow taller, if not you are done. ...Read more

I'm going to be 17 years old in 3 months.my father is 6,1 but my mother height is 5,2. Can i be as tall as my father ? Im 5,6 now.what should i do ?

Probably not: You may still be able to grow an inch or 2 over the next years with proper diet, plenty of sleep, and regular exercise. But it is unlikely that you will reach your dad's height. Just make sure you have excellent posture and a great attitude and you will seem even taller! ...Read more
