Hubs & I thinking about going for it!

Hi everyone! My husband and I have 5 children (ages 14, 11, 7, 5, and 2.5) and now we are thinking about at least one more. I'm very excited -- although we have a lot of work to do now. I am 42 (43 in July), he is 41, and he had a Vasectomy 2.5 years ago. I am in very good health and neither of us drinks, smokes, etc.

He is still in the "thinking about it" stage...so this isn't for sure yet.

We will be getting a reversal in Oklahoma (forgot the Dr.'s name -- got it from here) if we decide to do this.

Ok...so...I had my last baby at 40 -- what is going to be so different inside of me at 43 or 44 when (hopefully) I get pregnant again? What are the risks? I want to have a home birth this time with a hired midwife.

Please...fill me in. Thanks!

- Tracey

Thanks!

I have always gotten pregnant easily -- we're talking within 3 weeks of trying! So...I am pretty hopeful.

Dh is pretty much set on this. We've made the consultation appointment!!!
