grand multipara??

Hey, that's me!!

I had never heard this term before: grand multipara. Here's the definition:

Grand multipara: The term "multipara" applies to any woman who has given birth 2 or more times. A woman who has given birth 5 or more times is called a grand multipara

And get this, not only am I a "grand multipara" mother, but I am headed towards being termed a "geriatric" mother.

A geriatric pregnancy is defined as one where the mother is 35 years old or older.

Oh, great. ;)

p.s. all these terms crack me up! I am just a momma, loving her family! But come on, *geriatric*??? That one kills me~

Wow, that makes me a geriatric multipara x 2. I barely made it under the wire with my first. I was 34. For a few days. Gotta love medical terminology.
