I was 34 with my first who is 2.5 years old, and 36 with my last, who is now 16 months old. I am utterly and completely exhausted all of the time, even with an extremely healthy diet, adequate sleep, etc. Feeling too old to have another is a totally legitimate reason for not having doing it all over again. I feel like I COULD have a third baby, but then I just don't know how I'd swing it with the other two, as I'm hanging by a thread already. LOL!

I definitely don't have the energy to do it again and I still have pgp as well.
Lol I'm also 33 and I was afraid I was the only one who does this! 'I never have to do this again' has become my mantra. I also just keep looking at my 2.5 year old and thinking this is what I'll have in a couple of years - keep going!

I was 36 when kiddo was born and 38 for munchkin. I'm done. D. O. N. E. Haha! I don't know what it would be like having a kiddo at a younger age but I know for sure that my second pregnancy was much harder on me than my first.

I just don't like being pregnant. I love the babies but definitely not the being pregnant part.

I honestly don't think it's selfish. I think if you feel like it would be too hard on you then it's the best decision for you and your family.

I'm definitely going to be checking off every tooth in her red book as it comes through and I think I'll throw a party for the last one. Imagine never having a teething baby ever again!
