    We have a 3 year old daughter conceived through IVF. At our age (me = 43, DH = 56), it's looking like she'll be our one and only.

    I was an only child growing up. It is unfortunate that attitudes haven't seemed to change much in the last 30 years or so. My mum got asked a lot why was I an only child? School friends would ask if i was lonely and bored at home (NO!). Teachers and strangers would ask how many brothers and sisters i had?

    To be honest i think when you grow up as an only child you learn to appreciate being quiet/peaceful and enjoying your own time more then kids with siblings.

    I have 2 kids now who are 4yrs and 6yrs. There is rarely a time when you can't hear someone taunting, fighting, yelling, laughing, squealing, dogs baking and just general chaos. One child might try to do something on their own quietly but within 5 min the other one is in their room demanding attention. As a child that would have been super irritating for me!

    I’m trying to come to terms with only having one child. We’ve been trying for 2.5years with ivf and I think it’s time to stop. I think I was ready to stop after this last transfer- until my partner got pregnant and it felt like a miracle, but now she’s miscarrying. I know in my head all the good things about having one child. But when my DS asks “where is my brother?” I just want to cry. How do you move on? How do I stop because right now it hurts so much.
