Do you have an age when you want to be done having kids?


I will be 37 this year and thought I was done, now I think I'm pretty young yet, lol.

I'm not sure I'd want any more babies after 43-44 though.

I think youre too old once you hit menopause...its your bodies way of telling you youre too old which is why at a certain point in life women go through it.

30, I don't want anymore after I'm 30 so I have 2 more years.... mainly because DH is 32 right now and can/wants to retire at 55, if I have no more after 30 then the kids will be old enough to be out of the house when he retires  :-)

I used to say I was done by 30, but I'm 32 and we're still trying for #3. I don't really have an age for myself anymore, but when my youngest turns 7 in April we will stop actively trying.

I'm 37, and will be 38 next week. I'm 29 weeks pregnant with baby #4. This is my last baby. So, I guess 38 would be my cutoff age! lol

What kind of work does he do? I wish dh could retire at 55, lol.

I have a friend who always said she wanted 3 and wanted them all before she was 30. She got her wish, lol.
