I have a 20 year old, I am 37 and this is our first. We would LOVE 4 but I am thinking, unless we have twins, 3 is the most we will be able to have because of my age.
I spoke to a Dr. who had 3 within 3 years and she said, each time, she got pregnant within 3 months after quitting breast feeding. She said that's the most fertile time.
We were planning on long term breastfeeding but may do 3-5 months.

I didn't have my FIRST baby until I was 37. I went on to have 3 more children after that. Just had our 4th child when I was 42. You are still a spring chicken at 37.
missy123 and Rebelmommy like this.

I think 5 or 6 would be the best. I just love children! This is number 4 for us, but I am 41 yrs old And it took 5 yrs to get pg. So, we will see what He has in His plans for us.

For me, I don't mind how many; it's all up to my dh. He wants 2 boys and we have 1 boy already and a daughter. Though he told me he won't stop until we have 2. haha Goodluck to me and to my cervix!
