I hope it's okay if I hang out/lurk. I was here a little over a year ago trying to decide if I wanted to TTC, and was blessed with twin girls in November and now we've decided not to have anymore. But, there is still part of me that wants one more. It was a rough pregnancy for a variety of reasons. . .and I'm 41 now. . .so, the risks of birth defects is a concern. But, as I said - there is still part of me that wants one more.. . .I've brought it up to DH once, but he dismissed it due to our age and the twins. . . .but, I'm still unresolved.

Hi Deb,

Welcome!!! I am so happy for you with your twins!! That is great!! As far as TTC again that is very personal and something you really want to sit and discuss with DH. I know I am going for it!! The stats do show increase in Down and such over 35 but there are very many women who have perfectly healthly babies over 40. I am hoping I will be one of them along with all of the ladies on this board!!

Keep us posted!!
