What do you think about having a baby after 14yrs from having your first?

Me and my husband has been married almost 7yrs and we don't have children together. I'm worried about the economy what do you think?

  • if its something you guys want as a couple then you should do it. Yes the economy is bad i may or may not get better so dont let that be your only factor for not having another child.

  • I don't think anything about it to be honest. If you want another child, and you can provide for it, then go for it.

  • Its all up to you, but my sister and I are almost 15 years apart, I never feel more like her mom then her sister.

  • You'd be surprised how common it actually is. Esp. w/ remarried/blended families. In my situation alone, my dad remarried & he & my stepmom had my little sister - we are 25 yrs apart! My husb & I have the his, mine & ours thing goin. His dau & our dau together, are 19 years apart. My boys were 13 & 11 when my dau was born. I work in a high school & many high school kids' moms are still having babies. You can make it work. There's always rrom in the family & in your heart for a little bundle of joy! Good luck :)

  • my kids are 10yrs apart and it works wonderfully because i dont think i could handle them any closer in only real problem i have is that my youngest is now hitting the terrible twos while my oldest is hitting puberty and they're BOTH driving me insane...atleast the oldest is big enough to take the baby off my hands for an hour or so when i really need a break.
