I posted below that I am 38 and pregnant wtih my 3rd child. I could not be happier about it.

I have two friends who are now in their 40s and both have huge regrets about not having a 3rd child. One friend is 47 and she is often very sad about only having had two kids. It's just one of her major life regrets and there's nothing she can do to go back and change it now.

My other friend has an even sadder situation. She is 43 and had two children. One sadly passed away a few years ago after a long illness. She now has only one child. The thing is, she had her tubes tied after the 2nd child. Doctors discouraged her from having a tubal reversal because at her age her odds of conceiving are so slim after a reversal.

I feel so incredibly blessed to have a 3rd chance at being a mom. These women taught me to live life and follow your heart. You can't go back and change your mind once you pass a certain age-- don't take your child bearing years for granted.

I remember reading this post back in 2008 when I was still contemplating having a third child, and it was very impactful. Thankfully there were many encouraging posts like this and now we finally have our little guy who is now 15 months old!! So, so glad we went for it and were finally blessed with another child. To anyone still deciding... You truly won't regret it! I worried about silly things like, how will we manage Disney World, etc. Well, I'm sitting here at Disney this moment, while my youngest naps and my older two are having fun and IT ALL JUST WORKS OUT!
