Hi again everyone!
I have been scouring these message boards and I'd really like to chat to other older Mums like me who keep thinking they want more.
I have two teens, 16 and 14 then a 2 year old and baby of 5 month with my husband now.

Second time round is such a lovely thing for me.
I work from home and obviously I am very tired brestfeeding through the night but still I harbour thoughts of one more babe!

Anyone feeling like me?

Hello fizzylady! There are a few of us older ones around...I am 41 and ttc no. 4 at the moment, I have 3 children aged 11, 9 and 3! We always said 3 were enough btu after an accidental pg earlier this year changed our mind. Sadly that one did not work out and I have had one more mc since but giving it another go!

I know what you mean about just one more - in some ways I think I will always want one more, and I too am exhausted looking after the current 3, but one thing that has helped me decide about having another is that i now know I love having lots of children not just babies iyswim.

Sorry to ramble on...if you are interested I am on 2 threads you might like to look at, both in "Conception". They are TTC for fab 40+ and Anyone mad enough to ttc no.4 - or something like that - sorry am rubbish at links but they are easy to find and everyone is very friendly grin!

Speak soon,

RL

Hi thanks so much for making me feel better!
My Mum has said she'll disown me and as we are close I feel I cant confide in her how I feel.
I think hubby knows very well how I feel as I keep making excuses for not chucking out my maternity clothes.
I had two MC's before my 2 year old and hubby and I thought we wouldnt be able to have a babe together.
Now I think it was the long gap and the bod getting used to it again!
I do worry about my age though both in terms of fitness for pregnancy and also the obvious problems that can occur.
I'll check out your other thread!
Lovely to chat

Hi ladies, Roquefortlover, you could be me. Im 41, have an 11, 9 and 3 yo and am pregnant again with no4. Wow.

This preg wasnt planned and I was in total shock when I found out but am slowly getting used to the idea now. I too am a bit worried about my age etc, but I suppose things happen for a reason eh.

Being a childminder Im used to juggling children of all ages so baby no4 will just fit in with everyone else. Its so nice to have a house filled with laughter.

Good luck to you both with your families.
