Im 32. I've been with my SO for 14 years and we have my teen daughter, his teen son, my teen cousin, (fostering), and our 5 month old son. I'm type 1 diabetic and was considered high risk during my last pregnancy becuase of the diabetes. When I delivered, my uterus inverted (turned inside out) and my mom freaked. Now when we discuss me having more kids, she gets so angry and it always leads to an arguement. She says I'm just being selfish, because something could happen to me. Dont we all run that risk?

I understand both sides. Make a list of questions about any and all possible concerns and talk to your Dr. and SO and go from there. If your Dr. thinks things should be OK as long as you take it easy and 'follow your Dr.s orders) and you and SO think you can handle another, then I say go ahead but only if your Dr. thinks it will be safe. And like aeneva stated, try to see your mother's POV in the sense that if it were your daughter, you would support her in what ever she decides but will be concerned about her health and that of her baby. And although previous high risk pregnancies are a bit more concerning, all pregnancies come with risk. Hope this helps some.
