My husband and I have been married for 3 years and have been talking about having kids. He already has a 6 year old and would like him to eventually have a sibling. We have decided to wait 2 or 3 more years to start a family because hubby is still in school and so am I. I am worried about starting a family at the age of 32/33 because I feel like that is too old. I am glad that I didn't have a child in my 20s but at the same time I feel as though I missed the kiddy boat and should just not have kids at all. As if that isn't enough, my husband has a Traumatic Brain Injury which already takes it toll on our relationship. Thankfully he can function on his own but I know that another baby would be very stressful for him, despite what he says. He can barely deal with my SS so I am worried about having to take on the bulk of the parenting if he becomes too stressed out.
How many of you ladies started a family in their 30's? What has your experience been like?
