I am 35 so we will probably try for no. 2 next year because I know my fertility is probably plummeting. If we decide on a third then again that will need to happen quite soon after no.2 as I def want to be finished by 40. I hate having that time constraint, but I didn't meet DH until I was 30 and was too busy getting my career on track and partying in my 20s to settle down.
No worries... My SIL had her dd at age 36 and it was their first. They loved traveling , etc and weren't ready for kids yet. She will be 40 next month and they're talking about having another. It's so great how we can have healthy babies later in life now! Dh and I met 3 years ago and I didn't want to wait to have kids so we could space them and if we want a third I'd be under the 40 mark as well.
I know a few people who have had children in their late 30s/early 40s with no problems. It's becoming quite the norm. In fact alot of my friends who are the same age have recently had their first children. I may be 35, but dh is only 27 which is mostly why we waited.
I had my first at 20, my second at 22 and my third at 35. Its weird having a new baby with a 15 year old too but nice. This is definitely our last.
Not to mention my son is already an uncle on his Dad's side. I can relate to the Modern Family show a lot
I had my first at 21, then 27,30,32. I had my IUD put in so I know Ill be ok against more babies. I would have a 5th if I thought I could get away with it without people giving me crap. My family is beyond themselves that I have 4. If I were to have a 5th I think they would crap their pants.
I dunno Im starting to get up in age where there could be issues. If we do decide we want another it will be when GQ turns 1 or so. beyond that I think one of us would get fixed. Its sad that people who have nothing to do with my kids can be so judgmental and even more sad that it bothers me to the point I wouldnt have any more kids
