Hiya all just want to see if anyone feels the same way i do and also to see how other people cope with being broody. Am a mum who's 27 and have two wonderful boy's (luke and calum) who are 3 (nearly 4) and 2 (nearly 2 1/2) and i cant help but want another child. it gets to the point were it hurts me to think of it and upsets me, but am trying to be so good and tell myself i'll start trying in november (watch this space) and another factor that does put me off is the age of my boys because theirs only 18 months between them am i being a bit selfish in wanting to have another baby when their still babies themselves? please please anyone with advice would be welcome i really dont care if it's criticism i just want to know is this normal??

thank-you for reading this

I'm 25 and have a 7 year old boy called kyle who will be 8 in october.

I've been with his dad for 9 years and really want another child but i don't think that we will get the chance as we live in private accomodation and can just about afford living now, also i'm getting my self a carrer in childcare so i feel like there is gonna be obsticles forever and that i'll only have one child as i don't think i want a massive age gap than there already is.

You should be lucky u have 2 children, but i do feel for u cause it''s the best thing a woman can do in life and you're chances will run out one day, so why not have one more if u know it's best all round for ure family. good luck in what ever you decide.

It is so very normal. Given the age of your boys, you're probably missing having a "baby" around. If your 2 year old is anything like mine, he's probably Mr.Independant now, and it can be a little sad when they don't need you as much. As far as the closeness in age, my kids are only 22 months apart! We started trying for our 2nd when my son turned 1! Good luck!

I as well think this is totally normal! I couldn't wait to have another baby after my first son (who is 2yrs). We weren't trying for another baby but in Oct I became pregnant again with my second son and we are excited to have him in July. I think having them close in age is wonderful but also I dont think age really has anything to do with it. I also have two older brothers, the oldest is 12yrs older than I and we get along fine and the other older brother is 6yrs older than me.

If you feel ready and your spouse feels the same I dont see any problems with it. I wanted to have my second baby right after my first...lol. I also know we are going to have a third as well.

The way you are feeling is VERY normal! I have a 7 week old and love it so much I can't wait to have another. There is no right or wrong time to start trying again. You just have to do what is right for you and your family. My parents had 4 kids in 5 1/2 years and we all turned out just fine. Have fun with your little ones!

Sure it is normal. How many children we have an how far apart is something you feel within yourself it is not wrong. My sister and I are 1 1/2 years apart and we are and have been good friends our whole life I don't know what I would do if I didn't have her or if we were farther apart in age. My son is 5 months old and I love being a mom so much that I can't wait to do it again and again. My boyfriend and I have discussed that maybe when he is 2 we will have another or just become foster parents. But like you I have a desire to raise more children there is nothing wrong with that.
