    Default Am I crazy?

    Ok, I am 43 and have two children. One conceived after 2 years of IVF and one naturally conceived a year later. My DD is 3 and my DD is 22 months. I also have a 12 you SS who is with us part time. My kids and my business and my family pretty much take all my energy and I had a tubal during my last CS, however,I can't stop thinking about having another baby? Am I crazy, is this normal to feel such a strong desire? I know I should just let it go but I can't stop thinking about it.

    The heart wants what the heart wants

    I'm in a baby bubble at the moment. I have a 6 month old who is just adorable, she just oozes love and happiness and all things good.

    I think personally everyone knows when they're done or not. Deep down.

    Id say go for it. You never regret the kids you have, only the kids you don't have.

    I definitely don't think ur crazy. You know what u want and what u can handle. I've got trouble ttc cause of my pcos and other issues. I put a time limit of 40 on myself then give up. But I have no control over things so if I get pregnant after 40 then so be it. A child will be wanted and loved at any age by me. I say go for it

    Nope not crazy
    The first things that came to mind for me is:
    Do you think you would cope physically and mentally with another pregnancy/baby?
    What does hubby think about the idea?
    Financially can you support another little one?
    Are you comfortable with being an older mum say when little one starts school ?

    If none of the above are an issue then I'd say go for it !

    Bel they are good things to think about. I am not worried about coping with another child now but at 50 I will have a 10 yo, 8.5 yo and potentially a 6 yo. I've never been 50 so I don't know how that will feel?
