Re: How old is too old (for you, personally) to have a baby?

I had my first dd at 17, definitely younger than I would recommend... dd2 is 6 mth old and I am 34. I love being a mom at an older age, you really appreciate the process a lot more! We want 1 more, my cutoff was 35 but now I'm thinking 36

Oops, wasn't finished, got a new phone ...

I don't like being preggers at all except, like a pp said, feel I got the baby move. That being said I have had relatively easy pregnancies. If my pregnancies were harder I might not consider doing it again.

For me, 30. I had ODS at 19, and YDS at 20. When my husband retires from the military they'll be just entering high school! I'm 22 now, and would like to have another baby it not 2 more.

For me it is 32. (Since dh had a v after ds2 was born)

When I was younger I never really had a cut off age. More of a cut off number of kids

I have always said 35, but I have also said 3 or 4 kids and we only have 1 now and I am almost 31, so we will see (I married a younger guy and my husband is only 27)

We were joking about the rusty pipes last night. Honestly, we are open and it took a bit with my fourth so we'll see how this goes.
