I am turning 31 this month and I have 2 boys, a 12 yr old and 10yr old. Is it crazy to think about wanting another baby? Am I too old to start all over? It would be nice to have a baby around in the house!

  • Youre not too old. I had my last baby when I was 33. My kids before her were between 4 yrs old and 16 yrs old.

  • You are not too old, silly. I am 30 and I have a 1 year old, twin 7 year olds and an 11 year old. It is hard to go in all those directions though, but the baby is sooooooo worth it!

  • As long as you are good health wise you are never too old.

  • Oh yea, I think you are NUTZ lol. Only because I have no desire to have another baby, and haven't had that desire since I was preggers with my daughter (second). There are a lot of things to consider when having another child, obviously your hubby has to agree with it too, your kids are older and you and hub have more freedoms, are you willing to give those up? I dont' trhink your too old, but there are a lot of things to consider before you of luck

  • I don't think you are too old, but the sooner you decide and have the baby the better. My cousin just had one at 40 and everything went well, but the older you get the more doctors will warn you about the potential for complications and birth defects. They usually don't worry about those odds increasing til 35 though, so you are still well within the realm of young enough to have another one if that is what you want.

  • My mom had 7 children and her last child at 40, if anything it just makes you a wiser parent, having had others and having more knowledge to pass on.
