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?
