No wrong answers here But for you personally what is the age you will no longer plan on having any more children?

For me it was 43. I just turned 43 in November. I had my daughter in February of my 43rd year. So I got pregnant when I was 42. LOL. But saying that...I feel like I'm 25...so if my husband hadn't had the BIG V. I would be for sure wanting one or two more children.

I guess for me it's 41. Ill be 41 when this one is born and then we are done!! We wanted two kids and this does it.
Although in a way I would love more, but no way we can afford another one right on top of this one and I don't think I can go through all the losses and medical expense again anyway.

My cut off age was 40... but with the miscarriages and all that it ended up being 42. It was a really long, hard journey that tested our marriage to the limits but we are both so glad we did not give up. Miss S is awesome!!

I have/had no cut-off due to age. I had my last at 40. I didn't stop because of my age. I stopped because my family was complete at 2 bio children & 2 stepchildren.

I'm 9 weeks along and turn 45 about 2 weeks before baby's due date. This is it for me and if it weren't for my husband's desire I would have been done when I had my last one at 29! It is a new adventure and I'm thankful I can share it with him (his first child, he is stepdad to my 21 and 15 year olds).

My cut off age to get pregnant was 40. I got pregnant with this one a month before my 41st B-Day......I cut it close

I worry that she will be like an only child because my other two daughters are 19 & 21, but I have had some medical issues and can't imagine going through this again right away. My DH would probably love to have one more, but he hasn't had the all night crying jags yet

I don't know....I guess I would have to say 42 is my deadline/cutoff date.
I had a hard time with my son (I was 37 and now I'm 41) so I am not sure if I want to try fofr one more or not.Part of me does and part of me doesn't because I am afraid if I were to get pregnant again it would be hard on me again as well...

I will be 42 when this one is born. I suggested to my boyfriend that if this is a girl we try again, he already has two girls by his ex-wife, but he is not hearing it. hahahaha.

I just had my second April 11. And I will be turning 37 on June 10th. I will not be having any more, as I had my tubes tied right after my csection when I had my second. Pregnancy doesn't agree with me, medically. And I definitely don't want to be pregnant nearing to my 40's.

I think late 30s is the cut off time. I would really be concerned over the baby's health and well being even though times have changed. My father and grandfather are doctors and they both discouraged pregnancies later in life. But then they are of the "old school" mentality and received their education in a different time
