Hey I’m new on here 🤚🏼 just wanted to see if there is anyone with older children who are planning another little one? In 35 in October and my eldest is 15, youngest is 8. I also have a 10 & 12 year old! Desperately wanting to complete my family and have one more but I can’t help thinking I might be mad after an 8 year break from having a baby in the house lol?! My other children are with my ex husband, me and my current partner have been talking about having one of our own for a while. This will be my last definitely lol. Just thought it would be nice to find some ttc buddies in a similar situation xx

My son is 16, I also have 2 stepchildren that are 18 & 22.
We had a surprise pregnancy in december, that sadly ended in a mc.
We decided to ttc straight away & just got our bfp, im 5 weeks pregnant,
Good luck on your ttc journey

@mama8585 yes all except the eldest, he moved out 2 years ago!
The 18 year old will probably always live with us, he has epilepsy & global development delay.
My 94 year old grandad also lives with us, so it's a very busy household grin

@kkr168 oh wow! Definitely a busy household lol! I have 3 living with me as I lost my eldest a few years ago to leukaemia so it's just my 8 year old son and my 10 & 12 year old daughter at home with me and my partner. Plus the crazy pooch and the cat so it's also hectic here lol xx
