Quoting Back to Noob Status:" For those of you who didn't start having children until later in life (say 28-30+), do you regret it? ... [snip!] ... until one is older outweigh the risks of infertility or have to say "adios" to the idea of having that third or fourth baby?"
I don't regret it. I would like to have more kids than we will end up having BUT that is really due to losses & not age. And the issue that causes our losses has nothing to do with age either & would have been there at any age, it has to do with chromosomes. I guess if we were younger maybe
Dh would change his mind & want more if given enough time, but I doubt it. He doesn't want to go through any more of the drama around it all...and if we do, it will be once more, which for us will likely mean 1-4 more pregnancies
... So I don't think he'd be willing to think differnetly on that at our age now or if we were 10 yrs younger. He says he just wants to be happy now with our family & not open ourselves up to any more hurting. I get that.
I can't fathom not having had the years we did to do other things & finish our educations & such. I never thought that was an option & I've never thought a lot about how that would have played out. I did meet Dh young though, so we have been together all this time, we just didn't start TTC until about 30. We were together (not married all that time, but together) 14 yrs when we had our older son. MUCH longer than most people are when they start
