Success stories, sure! I consider myself to have been very lucky where the kids are concerned. Conceived right away, one very early miscarriage but no other pregnancy complications, deliveries were all very different but overall no issues there either. With each birth I feel I have healed faster and found my bearings quicker than the previous time. I have mental health issues so that’s always a challenge, but that’s not age-related, and I’ve had success taking approved medications during the pregnancies, so that’s an option should you find yourself in a similar situation. I didn’t know it was an option until my second baby… what else? You aren’t considered “advanced maternal age” from my understanding until 35 and even then women are having successful pregnancies into their 40s now, so if you take care of yourself and have good prenatal care, starting a family at 32 doesn’t need to be a big deal. SO many people are having children later now than they were a few generations ago. [name_m]Just[/name_m] remember that your health and mental health need to be priority or you won’t be able to give your child your best. I try to remember that with every pregnancy.
As for a big family, four is my limit, lol. But it’s been something I questioned every step of the way (can I handle another one and still give my children my best). So you’ll only be able to judge that once you’re into it and who knows, six may be fine for you and you might find a rhythm and be able to juggle them all. Everyone and every family situation is different. I found going from one to two harder than two to three and I’ve heard three to four is easier as well, so it might be fine. Also, birth-wise, the first was the longest, they all got shorter (and easier recovery) with each birth.
Good luck to you! And if there’s anything else I didn’t mention, feel free to reach out!
