What age is too old for you to have kids?  I am 35, I always swore 35 was my limit, but now being 35 I am rethinking that if things straightened out and financiallay we felt ready I would be ok with later..what about you? got an age?  Even if more are not in the works/plans

Whenever menopause happens. Our bodies stop being able to have kids when we become too old. So it's literally written into nature. Our bodies naturally tell us! I love natural bodies, natural fertility, natural conception, etc.

I don't have a cut off age. I am 36 and would like to have another.

I think the age is when you are ready. That can be at 20 or that can be 35. But then again, if you are waiting for the right time, then there might never be the right time.

Well I agree BUT with age your chances of birth defects also rises and its also harder on our bodies to recover from pregnancies later in life.  I am talking about when is too old for each person personally....wish menopause was the natural time inmy family, so far I am the first woman in 5 generations that hasnt gone into menopause by 35

I will be 31 in August and have 3 children- 2, 4, and 6. I think 35 is my cut off. I'm pretty sure we are done but there aren't any "permanent" birth control measures being discussed at this time. I would always welcome another child but I don't know if i would choose to ttc after my youngest is almost 7.
