it's just more gettin' old, love

I do wonder how much is age and how much is broodiness

My biological clock is off. I mean I still could, but I do not want any more children. Not a bone in me. But I am upset atm because I see v young women with pushchairs; also older women, maybe about 5 years younger than me

and I expect to know them and then I don't, and I realise that a whole new generation of mothers is replacing me and my friends, and we are now the older schooly mums and we are all shuffling one step further towards death

did that cheer you up at all? grin

Blimey Cappuccino, you know how to lighten things up grin. I think you have just articulated how I am feeling although I hadn't realised it before!

it's the opportunity of youth

you imagine said pregnant woman's life as one just about to be filled with joy and new experience

you have your rose-tinted specs on however

soon she will be as haggard as us and we will welcome her to the fold

not so optimistic now then, eh?

I have that effect on people

well then she is barking. 4 kids!

I'm so sorry you are sad. But you are onto the next stage of your life, as you say, and this woman - well, it looks like she's having trouble Letting Go.

It's sad for her really. Give her pitying, sympathetic smiles whenever you see her.

She can't face her own mortality, that's the only reason she's still popping them out

If its any consolation i feel the same, i never used to get broody when i was younger, now i only need to get a whiff of a baby and i want one. Im hoping its a phase that will soon pass.

But am secretly wishing i will meet the man of my dreams soon and get preggers again before im 40

well, let me tell you IME your neighbours will stop when her 4th is about 15 months old.

Not only did mine stop, I smashed it to bits with a sledge hammer and then propelled it into space one ting but at a time, making sure I propelled them all in defferent directions.

I bloody well hope it never finds me again.

I had a digital one until that really really cute baby I had turned in to a toddler.
Before that I could have carried on and on.

Having another toddler was when/why I smashed the thing up.

My biological clock stopped about 2 years six months and one day ago, after the birth of DS.
I have never felt broody in the slightest since that day, and have plenty of new and PG mothers around me.
I even got DH to have the snip as didn't want any slip ups
