    Hello Ladies,

    I had my DS at 30 and now I am 39. DH and I both want to have a second child and DS has been nagging us for a while that he is the only one among friends to not have a sibling. I realize it will be a 9 year gap between the kids, but I would like to TTC.

    ILs, who have conceived around the same age, please share with me your pros and cons of such late pregnancy. I know this is a personal decision to make, but I request you all to please please, help me with your experiences.

    Thank you,

    My sis and I have a gap of 9 years as well....no issues. U can conceive before your menopause! No issues.

    Good luck!
