I'm 46 yrs old, I'm overweight, I work full time, and I have 1 child (she's 5 1/2). I'm the financial provider for my daughter. My husband pays the rent and I pay for everything for the home, which includes gas, electric, clothes, shoes, toys, birthday parties, family vacations, furniture, sheets, towels, sports items, camps, uniforms, daycare, afterschool, medical, and do the laundry for my daughter and I, include other items. My husband and I don't share our salaries, he pays his bills and I pay mine. My relationship with my husband has been up and down, but lately up. My daughter wants a sister and I'm yawning for another child. I understand the risks for my age & weight. But, I'm not sure. I mentioned to a friend and she gave me all the flaws and mentioned how upset it was when my husband never helped out financially or help to raise my daughter. I'm looking to hear the pros and cons to help me decide what to do!Answer Question

if it were me...and almost is my 6 y.o. wants a baby brother or sister I am 45 and I am way too old to do it again.....
*Plus the risks of having a child with special needs increases with age.....I know our son has autism and it is rough to say the least.....
*First you need to check with your Doctor to make sure everything is a go.....and then ask your self if you really want to start all over again with a child at 48 y.o.????????
*That baby could still be at home when you are 70
