I normally don’t write about personal stuff but I’m curious about what other women think about this matter. Do you believe in the biological clock? Do you think the body sends messages and lets you know OK it’s time for a baby?
I have a wonderful 5 year old boy that is my world and my buddy!! When I was ready 5 years ago to have him it was planted in my mind to have kids before I was thirty. I got pregnant really fast but the whole pregnancy was not a joy. My blood pressure started to rise and I had to take meds to keep it under wraps and then right at 37 weeks my Dr. said I’ll see you tomorrow at three o’clock. I said "for a checkup?" he said no "to have your son!" I was in shocked but at 37 weeks I developed preeclampsia and by the time my emergency C-section came my blood pressure was 223 over 280…not good. But my little man was fine the whole time and came out in the world ready to go at 5lbs and very healthy.
Fast forward to now and as I have a birthday coming up in August I will be 35. In the last month my mind has started to scream "have another child hurry before it’s too late". This is all I think about. Everywhere I look I see babies and pregnant woman. I worry if I will be in the same boat again if I become pregnant. I feel like I need to hurry and make a choice before it’s too late. Has anyone had children after 35? In my mind I worry if something ever happen to me and my husband later in life that my son would have no one to be by his side. I don’t want him to be alone. I’m I losing my mind???
