Thanks liscia. I'm talking to my OB about having the Mirena inserted at the end of this month. That will have me on permanent contraception for another year, then I might be ready to ttc #2. if we have 1 we can give her so much. But I would like to give her a little sister too. I loved pregnancy & birth etc! So I'm certain on there being a number 2!
I need to sort out the contraception tho because DH is ok if we accidentally fall pregnant now!! And I'm not!
I just turned 42 and I'm 11 weeks pregnant!
We started late, couldn't get pregnant, got some help and then lost 3 angel babies before having our DD (at age 36) now 5 and then our DS (at age 38) he'll be 4 in Sept.
We thought we might be pushing out luck to keep trying for our much wanted 3rd child but I got pregnant again and we lost this angel baby in Jan 2010.
I am now busting to tell everybody that I am 11 weeks pregnant again and (fingers crossed) all seems to be going well.
My DS, my last angel and this (touch wood) young wigglebum were all natural conceptions.
I can't believe my luck!
My DH and I are very (nervously) thrilled.

Congratulations Linda! All the best to you for this pregnancy
hey all yes congrates Linda.
so how are we all?
I just wanted to say thanks for the well wishes and...
There was a time in my life of TTC that (although I would always be happy for someone who found themselves pregnant with a much longed for baby) I would suffer with mixed emotions when hearing their good news. Sadness, Envy, Anger (why not me)
So to those still longing - I hoped that posting this message might offer some hope to those needing some.
Good luck to all...
hi, I'm 42...woo hoo -
from perth, three children DS 7, DD1 6 and DD2 3. DH is 45.
if i had started younger, i would have had another, but unless a miracle happens, and not that we're planning anything anyway, i'd say our family is complete.
it took hubby and i over 14 yrs to have ds1.
so anything is possible.
well girls xox
well girls, Im booked in next week to have my Mirena IUD inserted.
Im definately decided that I will wait to have #2, and planning for DD1 to be around 3 by the time the next one arrives..... I hope we fall easily
I really enjoyed my pregnancy experience, birth and newborn and developing stages with DD1 and I want to be able to do that with no2.... with DD1 being that bit older and more independant, feeding herself, out of nappies - and hopefully settling easier!!
So, no TTC for us for about a year! DH will be about 45 by the time we get to no2! Ohwell, thats just the way it is!
Hope everyone is travelling well x
