femmeaufoyer Sat 08-Dec-12 10:58:25

39 and expecting DC2 any day now. My body is feeling it! DH (he's 40) and I have been discussing it this morning and he feels we should maybe have started younger, first DC was born when I was 36. But, as I pointed out to him, by the time the kids are teenagers (and getting expensive) we will have paid of the mortgage! There are financial benefits to leaving it later...

33 and just had children 1&2. They are 10 weeks old today!

Mylittlepuds Sat 08-Dec-12 11:03:53
