I was 38 when I got pregnant with #3 and I was so excited. It can be scary, and since I've now had two losses, even scarier, but in my heart I want another child so I'm going to keep trying despite now being 39.
Just because you want more children doesn't mean you aren't happy with the family you have. I explain it as I love my kids and family so much that I want to add to that.
Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12
Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck. Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.
This Cluttered Life
I am new to this board and dont post too often due to work and kids...but I am going to try harder. I too want #3...We have been trying for over a year now..I miscarried last December so who knows what will happen.I will be 39 next month...I do know we are fortunate to even have 2 kids...but I still have a yearning for one more....
JenninMA:I'm 38 and mostly think we're done but here I am lurking on the TTC after 35 board! I find it tough having a 3 yo and 1yo so I think logically we should be done but I haven't stopped thinking about a third. I wish I were younger and had more time to think about it.
This is me exactly! I am 36 with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. I would LOVE to have another child, but Dh isn't on board. Every time we talk about #3 he is like, "Absolutely NO NO NO!" I'm not sure why he is such a "no" on the subject, but it makes me sad. I'm not sure he will come around or not. So, I just kinda lurk on this board. I definitely wish I was younger so we had more time to think about it!
