Hi i already have a toddler who is 2 and a half and i dont know if i want to wait.At age 13 my doctor told me i probably wouldnt be having any children because i had weak kidneys(kidney infection,disease) and i believed him but after trying for 3 years i had a healthy boy.I did run a high fever and Hayden was 2 wks late(induced).I was 24 when i gave birth to my son and im 27 now and my husbands 34.I dont really know if i should wait till after im 30 because their could be a higher risk.I want Hayden to have a sister or brother we just got a cat but its still not the same.He doesnt hang around children and i feel guilty because hes lonley.What should i do?

If you want another child, it's better to have them while you're young. The close in age the two are, the better they will get along in the long run. I have three kids, 3 1/2, 19 months, and 4 weeks. I wouldn't trade their closeness for anything. I am also 27 with a 34 year old husband. Kids are great!

I Say Go For It Girl Friend! If Your Ready And You Have Talked To Your Husband About It Then Go For It. We Have A 7 Month Old And We Have Thought About Adding To Our Family Soon Because My Husband Is 30 And He Doesnt Want To Be Old When They Go To College. So We Maybe Having Another One Soon! :-)

Good Luck And If Your Husband Says Yes Then Happy Baby Dust To You!
