  • I was 40 when I had our last. I would have loved to have had more...but didn't feel right taking the increased chance that something could be wrong.

    Not only that...I just cranked out 3 in 33 months and I absolutely HATE being pregnant.

    I do sometimes still wish we had one more...but it's not going to happen. My husband saw to that.

  • My husband and I have two children. Boy and a girl. I was 32 when we had my son and 34 when my daugther was born. We both decided that 2 was the right number. Had we started earlier, we would have probably had 1 more. This works for us and we are happy with it.
