You are all making me feel so much better about this. O really hope that DH agrees to a second (3rd for him). I don't want LO to feel like an only child as his sibling is 17 years older than him.

Very happy with my two, born when I was 36 and 38, and OH 48 and 50. If it wasn't for his age, I would be pretty tempted to have one more!

I was 36 with dd and I'm 38 with this baby. My dh and I've been married 15 yrs. and we just happened to decide 2 yrs ago to try and I'm happy we did. We wanted dd to have a sibling so age has not stopped us- thankfully.

No regrets here. Had dd at 35 and I'll be 41 when this one comes along. It has taken us 7 yrs for me to hang on to my 2 babies longer than a few weeks so I guess in theory I would've been a younger mum when we started ttc but I honestly think age is just a number!!

I had my first dd when I was 37, and my 2nd dd on my 42nd birthday! We tried for two years for our second. The evening after she was born, when I held her in my arms I thought two things:
1. I am so glad we went the lengths we did to bring her into the word
2. I understand why people do it again and again

Honestly, if I were a little bit younger and didn't live in a big city, I would go for a third.

I can't imagine life without them both.

Good luck on your journey!

I just turned 37 and I've got a 3.5yo, a 18 month old, and #3 due in March. I work fulltime, and sure, we're busy, but I wouldn't change a thing

In short: Yes. Absolutely, I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I am 39. I have two teenagers, 17 and 15. My little one is three weeks old today.

Having this new baby in my late thirties is VERY different than it was having babies in my early 20s. I have much more patience now. I can sit back and soak it all up, just breathe in everything about the experience. I know that part of that is because I have already "been there, done that" with my two older kids. But some of it is simply that I'm older now, and wiser (I hope!) and so grateful to have this chance to do it all again.

We had some complications, and a rollercoaster of a pregnancy, and a heartbreaking loss of his twin...but even with all of that, I look at this little guy and there is no doubt. I would go through it all again to have him.

I will be 40 in January. And some people might think we're crazy, but we haven't ruled out trying to have another one. We'll see...
