Well, you're a great mom, so I think you should be legally required to have more babies. If you don't, Sarah Palin will pull ahead, and have more babies named Tripp and Archipelago.

Someday, the economy will recover, and Mister will resume earning mucho dinero from his writing skills (feel free to share his secret leprechaun pot o' gold with me, most writers are underpaid). Don't miss the embryo window now, unless you genuinely think the economy will NEVER recover to the point where he will recapture at least a significant percentage of his former earning power.

Um...old(er) mom? That would definitely be me. I'm in my 40s, with two little ones (a 16-month-old and a 6-week-old). Oh, and an 18-year-old.

Now, to be fair, the two little ones were born via surrogacy, so I didn't do the pregnancy part. But the working full-time as a lawyer + toddler + baby (+ bonus teenager) -- that's exactly where I am.

Freelancing and stable finances. Oil and water. :)

You are a brave woman. Though I think if you long for another child, you'll be able to manage it. That said, how realistically do you feel you can plan? (I ask this in a completely neutral way--I terribly underestimated the demands just one would have on my ability to focus and work). If you have more resources, will you be able to get more help? If so, then more power to you! Go for it.
