Hi ladies. I am a 37 year old mom with a beautiful 5 year old daughter. I have really wanted to have another child but the time was never right do to some personal problems. We are now considering having another baby. I am struggling with deciding if we are too old at this point. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

One of my good friends was 32 when she had her 1st child and then had SEVEN more. Her youngest was born when she was 46... perfectly healthy.

I just turned 38 and have a 6 year old son and currently 25 weeks. Both pregnancies were total surprises. I would not have chosen to have another baby at 38 but am excited about my new adventure of becoming a mom to another boy. Follow your heart Jodi and do what is best for you! ♥



For those of you on FB, I created a group after discovering that there are not any really good groups for providing support, ideas, tips etc. in a closed environment for pregnant or new moms to share ideas and ask questions so I created one. Ask to join the group and I will get your request approved and then you can add other friends that can benefit from the group. We are having lots of fun and sharing lots of great info!

Im 36 and 17 weeks, so i'll be 37 when i deliver. I wanted a baby, so i tried and didn't worry about age. Besides, as many of the previous ladies can attest, women are having kids way into their 40s these days!!!
