    I want to try for baby #3
    An_248126 posted:
    Hello! I am 38 and will be 39 in December. My husband and I have (2) ddaughters ages (4) and (6). We really want to try for baby #3 but with my age and all we are not sure. I had gestational diabetes with both pregnancies and had to have 2 c-sections. I would probably have to have another c-section which makes me nervous. But I am feeling like I want to try one last time before I get too old. What are your opinions?

    I am 40 yrs. old and 22 weeks pregnant, I have my opinion.. LOL. My own experince and my 2 best friends just got a baby with 441 and 43.... times are different and you are a healthy person all will be good.
