    I am the only one left in my mother's group of 9 mums with only 1 child. DD is 8 and we would really like another. I call DD my miracle child I hate the 'at least you've got ..." comments, but once a lady at work told me I was selfish for only having one. I was so upset we keep trying and always thinking about it. I think we have to give up soon because Dh is 41 next week and I'm 40 in March. I am glad to find this thread.

    Another one here in the same boat. Been trying since my son was born. Been 4 years now. Fertility treatment isnt possible at the moment. The part of me that tries to tell myself its ok is the part that tries to remind me of the sleep deprivation and that hard first year. Then I know of people getting cancer or losing their spouses or just having really hard times in life I snap out of it. I just try to block and found as my son gets older it gets a bit easier. I'm 36 so think I still possibly have at least 5 years up my sleeve. Then I have times when I'm really not ok. But they pass.

    I'm a single mumma and my DD is almost 4, it hurts that I won't be having another any time soon. It's a sadness deep inside of me that she won't have a sibling close in age and that I'd love another baby but have no partner to do that with. Everyone just goes 'you're young, you've got plenty of time' but it doesn't make it hurt less. And I'm not THAT young!

    Default Are there any other mums to an only child NOT by choice??

    Yep definitely. My second child was stillborn at full term so I not only feel upset for myself, but I feel so bad that DS lost his brother we're ttc but we were lucky to conceive our first two (fs told us we had less than 5% chance of ever having kids). I would've loved at least 3 kids but would've been more than happy with the two we had

    I got my DS who is 7 and its looking extremely unlikely i will ever have any more children which breaks my heart.

    Now i am focusing on us 2. We are taking our first big holiday in August(just a cruise but its our first official big holiday) and then i am going to be planning a huge 2wk holiday overseas for us in 3 or 4yrs time pending where we go.

    I get this all the time. Very fustrating yes I'm 27 but no I don't live the life of my age nor feel 27 more 37. Really want to meet someone worthy of hanging another child with not just anyone.
