Just wondering if anyone else had the experience of being incredibly clucky in their late thirties and if it fades at all over time?
Practically and logically it is not the right time to have a baby, I'm single (happily) and I have a beautiful son who is four. However I'm craving another baby and I am wondering if this feeling is just the biological clock ticking.
Having a baby by myself would be amazing but put significant pressure on my finances.
Has any one else had this strong craving for baby later in their thirties and does it fade over time or should I acknowledge this craving as a real desire for another child... All advice very welcome.

I don't have any personal advice, but I have read lots of threads and heard stories from women who put it off for whatever reason, and then get to their late thirties and realize they truly regret never having a baby (or second/third child etc) but by then due to their age and circumstances it is much more difficult and usually doesn't happen. All I'm saying i guess, is try to imagine how you will feel when you are 35 or 40 years old, do you think you will have come to accept never having a second child, or will it be something that causes you much regret and sadness. If its the latter, then I think you should have a second child now! Not to sound corny, but money is not as important as your happiness, I'm sure you would be able to make things work if you really needed to.

Sorry just realized you said you are already in your late thirties, silly me! Well definitely is a choice you need to make sooner rather than later. You did say having another baby would be amazing, I know life is hard without a lot of money, but should that stop you from something that would make you really happy?

I'm in my late 30's, have a 2 year-old DS and am a single mum. There's definitely been times in the last year that I've thought I'd like another, but then I realise I really don't, or couldnt and I have those 'what am I thinking' moments. But in saying that I would adopt in a minute! It just took me do long to recover physically from the birth, and the sleep deprivation.
Do my best advice is to give your decision some time - maybe you have I'm.not sure but give it a few/6 months or so to be really sure.
Ive also noticed my body is screaming at me now! My cycle is much more pronounced now than it used to be!
Good luck with it all!
