Baby factory closed at what age if at all?

Do you have a particular a particular age or amount of kids that you plan to close the baby factory or whatever happens, happens?

With my most recent miscarriage being as a result of Trisomy 18, a chromosomal defect, I am pretty sure the rest of my eggs are starting their downward turn in viability and with it also having been my second miscarriage, I am pretty sure I am closing shop at 35 given the evidence of more problems in the future.

After 6 pregnancies, including 4 miscarriages, I gave up having any more at 32... & ended up having hysterectomy at 35 so the decision was made for me.

I am done having kids, I have 3. I always thought that after 30 I didn't want to have anymore kids, I don't know why 30 it is just a number that has always been in my head.

My factory closed Oct. 2011, with baby #2 @ age 34. And I'm good with that.

I am 30 right now and still trying for baby #1 but if that doesnt happen in the next ten years I think dh and I will look into other options (he will be 50 in ten years so for him having kids at that age would be not good)

30 was my number. After 5 pregnancies and deliveries, 4 live births and a fullt erm stillbirth. I closed up shop I couldn't do it any more and neither could my body.

 I closed the factory after baby #3 at the age of 27.  We knew we were done then.  We had 3 healthy kiddos by then.  Now the kids are grown (16,15,11) and Hubby and I are like dating all over again :)

I closed mine after baby #1 at the ripe old age of 21. I stand firm on that still at 33.

I closed up shop after my one and only was born when I was 26. As selfish as one may see it, but I don't feel the need to have children. I'm not doing anything to prevent it if it happens between now and mid 40's. But I hope I'm not punished to go through that trama again. Doctors, nurses, sonographers and hospitals did enough trust worthy damage the first time and treated me like a rag doll. No amount of therapy can ever change the way I feel about those types of people again.
