Thanks for the query.

If you want to go for next pregnancy you have to take below factors into consideration:
-In case of previous two normal deliveries you can go for the third, if previous two were cesareans then third pregnancy is some what risky.
-Complications of pregnancy, genetic abnormalities will increase with increasing maternal age.
-Taking care of three children is usually difficult.
So if you still want to go for next pregnancy, you plan carefully with your doctor's advice.
Maintain good health, take regular antenatal checkups, ultrasound examinations etc.

Take care.
