    Default Having a baby together

    So dp and I both have children from previous relationships but none together.....

    He wants a child together and so do I but our timelines are very different

    I want to ttc now where he wants to wait about 3-5 years.

    I’m not happy with that..... my children will be teenagers and I don’t want to go having a baby when my current kids will be adults not long after.

    Another thing is dp’s age.... he’s in his 40’s (I’m in my 20’s) and I feel like waiting 3-5 years when he’s in his late 40s isn’t something I want.

    I feel like In 3+ years I won’t want to start the baby phase again because I’ll be at a different stage with my children being older. I know plenty of people do this but it’s not what I want.

    Has anyone else had an issue with timelines not aligning?? What did you do? Did you compromise??

    hey!
    We are doing the same thing. My kids are young teenagers, and DP are close but one is young. Our ages are older though (both mid 30's) and we decided to go for it now.
    Is your DP aware of your concerns? Have you guys spoken to a doctor?

    Our baby will be the youngest of 6 older siblings, but we really want one together.
