Too old for two?
Fri, 06-18-2004 - 12:01am
I'm 40 my newborn is 4 months. I'm seriously wanting another. We are not trying to prevent a pregnancy, but sometimes wonder if we are crazy to even think about another child at our age. I know if we want another, we don't have the luxury of time. Yes, I want another baby! If it is a boy, that would be awsome because we already have a girl. If it is a girl, well I would love it! We already have everything!

Do I have the energy at this age?

Yes, you have the energy. I had my first at 40, the second at 43. I never thought about my age before. I am now trying for a third!

If that's what you're wanting and your husband is on board - I say "do it!"

No sense is waiting! Get it all out of the way now! :)

Hi Brandy...

I have to laugh because I ask myself that same question every day!!! I am 40 and have a 4 year old boy (5 in Sept) and a 2 year old boy. He just turned 2 last month. I also had a tubal reversal done last month and am going to ttc #3!!! Am I crazy? The thing is this...I ask myself what has been the happiest time of my life? And without hesitation I can truly anser being a Mom. So here I go again. They grow too fast and I think it's great you want another!!! Lots of luck and baby dust!!

Hi Brandy,

I agree with all the ladies here. I'm 40 (41 in Sept.) and I have a 2yr 8month old DD. She is the love of my life and DH and I are ttc #2. We would love to have another child and a sibling for DD.

Good luck to you and hopefully we will all be pg SOON!!!!

I think having children in our 40s gives us more energy and keeps us young. I had Alexander at 43 years old, and adopted Edwin at almost 45.5 years old and I'm 44 years older than Edwin. It's so much fun - don't miss out on it because you think you are too old!
