Am I mad? I am obsessed trying to conceive baby no.4 2nd month of trying now. I have 3 boys aged 12, 9 and 7. My baby is no longer a baby and my 12 yo no longer wants to be in the same room as me, I really miss having a little un and feel like my biological clock is ticking. I also feel a little selfish as I hav 3 amazing kids and some people can't conceive 1, I have suffered 2 miscarriages and am scared of experiencing another but I really want my family to feel complete and if I'm honest I would like a girl. I'm driving myself nuts Ttc. I have a 25 day cycle and ant fathom out when I ovulate, I had every symptom under the sun last month but still had af so gonna try not to overthink it this month. Is anyone else in a similar position to me? I could do with a friend xx

I'm not, but have you checked with an OBGYN about TTC #4? I know some people heal really well after c-sections but some people are advised against having too many pregnancies because their bodies can't handle it. Also, if you have had 3 boys you are more likely to have a 4th than have a girl. You need to figure out if you want another baby and would be happy if you had a boy.
