  • Well, my dd will be 1 in July and I will be 31 in Sept . . . so I think I may want one more, but definitely before 35. I'm not so much worried about being high risk due to age, because I'm already high risk and I hate how they draw this line and suddenly one day you are high risk. What I worry about is being there . . . how long can I be around for my children and then grandchildren. So, maybe one more, but soon! You are only 28 honey!! Have your next one around 30 and then you still have time to have another! You're not too old, just take care of yourself!!

  • i was 23 when i had my daughter, hubby was 29. my best friend had her first at 31 and her second about 2 yrs later. they are now 4 and 2 and mine is 3, we are having our second in may. you aren't anywhere near too old to be having more kids. i think if you are in your late 50's thats when you are too old and its unfair to your child. you are definately not near that old honey

  • My son is almost one and sometimes I wish I could have more sooner but nothing is going well for me. I hate it.

  • I'm 23. I want to wait about 5 years or so before I have another.

  • I had a baby at 19 in 1986
    one in 91
    one in 94
    then one at 39 in 05
    and one at 40 in 06
    I am not too old thank you very much! My kids are 23,18,15,3 and 2.
    I think you should have kids if you want them. 28 is nothing! I say go for it. I don't regret mine for a single minute.

  • I'm 21, have one 2 year old and maybe, possibly, not sure yet, want one more in the next 2 years.
