I have 4kids. My first pregnancy at 16 and my last at 27, I'm now 38 nearly 39 and I find myself longing for a baby but I'm afraid I'll get too tired etc, Their ages are 22, 17, 13, and just gone 11yrs. Everyone thinks I'm much younger than I am and they don't believe my daughter is my daughter, people thinks were friends or sisters. I love kids and don't know what id do without them, I was an only child, long story! Any advise welcome!!

I had my first baby at 39 and I haven't regretted it all, but I do have a very supportive husband who likes to be hands on and who took turns with all of the night time feeds etc.

Hi All, Just a little update! I now have a 6 month old grandson! I've been there at his birth and everyday since. My daughter even remarked me asking how did I do it ? I was up every 3hrs helping her out as he'd jaundice. Now I'm still trying We'd Love another baby!! That was the only thing that really worried me was would I be able to wake up every 4 hrs & look after a baby. Now my boys are always at us asking us are they going to get a sister or brother? I was trying by that ovalationcalender but it was way too stressful. I gave that calender up. Now we dont do it on demand so to speak but when we want to. If nothing happens in 2 more months I'm going to buy them ovalation tests. Would anyone recommend them?? Also I take Folic Acid daily! Also looking for friend in similar situayion TTC after 40 . Thanks for reading!!
