Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Do pregnancy symptoms change when you get pregnant later in life?

I don't know for fact, but in highschool I had a friend who's mother got pregnant at the age of 40.  She found out when she was 9 weeks pregnant. She didn't have severe symptoms or anything. (this was her 3rd pregnancy) She had average morning sickness and fatigue. 
I don't think it would. As pregnancy is pregnancy and the hormones changes are the same no matter on age. Pregnancies can vary of woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy for the same woman.
