Do you think 34 is to old to TTC #2?

MY first one I was 30?
I do not feel old.......but I worry about the risk of pregnacy at a later age in life.

  • No.
    I had a cousin who had a Downs baby at 21.
    The numbers increase as you get older but there are always potential risks.
    I had my last at 32 and I would have liked to have more... dh said no...
    I say go for it.

  • honestly??!!!! in MYYYY opinion... yes you are to old...my mom was 35 when she had me, and theres just WAAAAAY to much of an age gap between us..and my dads 9 years older than her..so its realllllllly big..i used to play sports in highschool, and my parents would always come and watch me, and sooooo many time i had people come up to me and say how nice it was that my grandma and grandpa came to watch me..and im like yaa those are my parents!!

  • Not only no, but HELL NO. **grin**

    I was 35 when I conceived mine. My parents were 34 when they adopted me...and no one ever mistook them for my grandparents. (In fact, when I was in college no one believed that my mother was in her 50s!)

  • Nope. My mom had me at age 37 & my sister had a child at 38 or 39 & since it was ANOTHER GIRL (they have 4) they were thinking about trying *again* for a boy! ...... i think they have changed their mind though ... who knows... they are crazy "kids".... (their an awsome couple/family & i think they forget they are not 30 anymore. lol)
