I thought I wanted to be done at 38- people make plans and God laughs....... My second, as many of you know, has a rare genetic disease, we went and continue to go through so much with him that we weren't sure if we would ever have another one. Finally, after he became alot more medically stable, we decided we wanted to give our first a "typical" sibling so we went for it and I had #3 at 39. I never predicted that I would be hit with such a painful case of GD so now as my 40th b day quickly approaches, I'm considering one more. The funny thing is when I had my first at 32- I really didn't feel ready yet and would have loved another year or two to enjoy my dh, our freedom, the fact that we were starting to make money etc... (he's a dentist, I have a Ph.D. so we were both in school for a LONG time). Anyway- I went ahead before I was really ready and got pg on the 1st try- but I did it b/c I didn't want to get too cocky, wait too long and then wind up with fertility problems or an unhealthy child because of my age. Meanwhile, I wound up with a very unhealthy child that I had at 34, and am now thinking of using fertility treatments to have another at the old age of 40-41.......go figure!
