Im 37 and have suffered from a very young age with pcos and many years with infertility. With many years of trying and at 35 I had a beautiful girl my little miracle born at 25 weeks gestation and then at nearly 37 was blessed with another baby girl which both of them make me feel complete but then the other part of me always wanted 3 kids and would have loved a boy. After 2 ceasereans and having to wait a cpl years would I be silly to try again for the boy at 39/40? I know it probably sounds selfish to even think about it but I just in 2 places thinking if it happened should I or not. I keep thinking should I shouldn’t I? Will it safe? Will I be to old? Am I crazy? Sorry just had to get it off my chest.

  • My mum had me at 36, she was 39 when she had my sister. As long as everything is ok with you medically to have another, go for it. Life’s too short fir regrets


  • have suffered from a very young age


  • Go for it, 39/40 is not to old.


  • Boy or girl are same. The most important they growing well and healthy. I think two is enough but if you ready go for it.


  • make sure you let us know . its exciting


  • go for it . .
