I had two sons before I met my husband we have three together bringing our total to five. My sister works overnight shifts so we get to have our niece who is three weeks younger than our youngest spend the night five nights out of the week. Theres our half dozen. My husband has allways wanted a big family. I told him he would probably get three babies from me and that I didnt think I could do anymore. Its hard being pregnant and taking care of all that comes with it. Sheesh. But he still wants more babies. Honestly if I won the lottery tomorrow and could afford to stay home with the kids I would do it in a heartbeat. But I also have to work. Also since Im over thirty Im concidered a high risk pregnancy now. I just dont think I have it in me for one more...Any thoughts, feedback, suggestions would be helpful.Answer Question

Being over 30 doesn't automatically make you high risk. I am 39 and pregnant and not considered high risk at all. My doctor factors health and many other things. Some doctors do arbitrarily say a woman is high risk. I am so glad I have a doctor who doesn't practice one size fits all medicine. The fact you have 5 between you is more than enough reason to say no though.
