How old is too old for you? Mommy to munchkin 2 kids; 1 angel baby; somewhere, TX, United States 1597 posts

Just wondering what age is your cutoff for having a baby? We currently have a girl and a boy. Our boy is only 5 months and originally I was all for being done but now I can't say I'm done for sure. However it would be a few years before we would try for another. I'll be 30 in May and DH is 33 now so that would put us around 33 34 and 36 37. Just wanting opinions ultimately I know it's our decision and how we feel at that time.

We're in a similar situation, except I'm 31 and DH is 41. I don't know. I think we're done and DH is definitely more certain of that decision whereas I'm going back and forth, but yeah. Probably by 35? But then, you know what they say of plans.

It's all about how you feel.  DH and I do not want to be up all night taking care of babies in our 30s so we are trying for our 3rd and final baby this year.  I'm turning 27 this month and has turning 26 next month.

When I was younger, I said 30 was my cut-off, and I had what I thought was my last baby right before I turned 31. However, life happened. I got divorced when I was 39, met a new man when I was 40, and had my last baby at 43. I don't regret it for one second.

I dont have one, if i get pregnant when i'm 40 then i do. My aunt had her last at 45 and she didnt have any complaints, she's been enjoying that one last baby. I'm about to have my 3rd at 24 and DH is almost 33. We have no plans of being "done"

#3 didn't happen as fast as we thought it would. By the time he/she arrives I'll be like 150 years old and we will probably go for #4 too... 

If all goes as planned I'll be done around 35, DH will be like 41.

30 was always my cutoff as well but now not so sure. Guess we will see what happens if and when that time comes

I'm 30. We are done because pregnancy is too hard on me and I f**king cherish my sleep and can't handle another newborn. I've had a rough time transitioning from 1 child to 2.

If I were to want more kids, I probably would stop by 35. I'm too tired as it is. I can't imagine being 40 with a newborn. 
That being said, DS1s BFF is 8 and his mom had him at 50. Naturally. He's the last of like 8 kids. She f**king loves babies. When she found out I was pregnant she got so excited I thought she was going to cut me open and steal the baby lol

30 was originally my cut off. I just turned 29. We definitely want 1 more but I don't graduate nursing school until next May and I want to work a year first. It also took us almost 2 years to get dd2. We will probably start trying either fall 2018 or beginning of 2019. Dd1 will be 10 and dd2 will be 4. I will probably be 34-35 when we are finished. Dh is only a month older than me so age isn't a huge issue.

Probably 43-44 would be my personal cutoff.

I'll be 33 when this one is born and finished having children. When this child is 18, I'll be 51 and DH will be 47.

30 is my cutoff (I'm 28). My kids will be 11 and 7 by the time I'm 30 and I'm not sure I want to deal with a girl going into pubery and an infant at the same time. So I have about a little longer than a year to ttc but the way it's looking I'll be done at the 2 kids I have.
