Dreams of planning our next child

Last night I had a dream that I was planning on our next child, I was planning to have the baby around 35 yrs old I then woke up in a panic realising that I am 35 already! I know I wold like one more but was going to wait until my youngest is at least 4 so I can have my time with the baby! But would 37 be too old? I really have been missing a baby in the house!

  • That depends on your overall health. This is probably a question that you should be asking your ob/gyn. I know each year over 35 gets a little more risky for things such as down syndrome. I am also facing this. I just had my first little girl at 31 and my husband wants to wait five years. I don't. Of course, even after you talk to your ob/gyn it's ultimately a question only you can answer.

  • The longer you wait the harder it will be. If I were you, I'd start trying now.

  • I know numerous people who have gotten pregnant after 37.

  • Ya know sometimes dreams are our inside thoughts trying to get out. If you wait... wait your young.
