Need some advice from other moms who waited to have their second or third child until late 30's.

What was the transition like? Still undecided on having a second child but my son is lonely and begs constantly for a sibling preference (girl). His father and I will be getting married soon and I would like to wait a while before trying again. Will be 40 in a few years, dont know if I will have the energy to deal with two rowdy kids...lol

I do know its not a good reason and actually it isn't and yes your right, I will be the one up most nights tending to a newborn, but I have other factors that are weighing heavily on my mind and wondering if to have another child in a year or two so that I can continue on with my plans, but again I will need to find out from God if that is what he wants for us. My partner wants another child and well I'm still undecided.....I do and then again I don't and just would not like to look back in 10yrs and be like I should've had another child. :(!

Having another baby because your child would like a sibling isn't a good reason to have one. Your son isn't the one that will be up all night feeding a newborn.
I found that I had a lot more patience with my 3rd (6 years after my 2nd) but the sleepless nights took it's toll some days. I was 35 when I had her.
It's a decision you and your partner have to make though.
