Early 30s giving up on having a 3rd sad loving mommy hood 2 kids; Berwyn, Illinois 53 posts

I’ve been a member of this site since 2007 I had my son in April of 2008 at the age of 19. I then had my daughter in 2012 at the age of 24. I’m now 31 and I believe that I will never have another one ans it’s bothering me. I am divorce but been with my on and again off bf for 4 years now. I always wanted a big family and at least 5 kids but would settle with 3. I just got my masters in education in June! I work from home and take care of my children by my self but I’ve felt that my clock is ticking and it won’t happen and that makes me very sad. Has anyone ever felt this way? Anyone had a child in early 30s? I just need some advice. My family makes shady remarks after I got my iud remove in July like don’t have a slip up. They think I’m a great mother so why would it be so wrong to have another. Just feel lost and confused

I had my 3rd at 33 and due to health issues going on right now my 4th will be in my late 30s. My kids were born in 2008, 2010, 2017. 

However in your shoes I’d secure the relationship first. On again off again isn’t stable for children. 

Otherwise- go for it.

I had my 4th just after I turned 32. I'm done having babies though. She's our 5th and my body can't do another c-section. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks about what you do with your body or your family. It just would be best for you to be in a stable relationship bc the child will benefit from that. Meaning, do go off having a bunch of 1 night stands just to get pregnant. You don't want that mess for you or your children. Plenty of women have babies well after their early 30's so why can't you?

I just turned 30 and I'm pregnant with my 2nd. My first pregnancy was in 2010. I was convinced that I was 1 and done as it's taken me so long to get pregnant again, but just as soon as I got convinced that I'll only have my one, here comes this little surprise lol. Don't give up hope and don't let the opinions of others affect you. I know it's easier said then done as im going through the same thing
