    Default First time poster - large age gaps between children?

    Hi mums
    I’m new to the app and I’m wanted to know how many mums here went back for another baby after 8yrs?
    I’m wanting to know or everyone else’s experiences with having a big age gap between children

    Hi and welcome

    I don't have experience with this myself (I have an 8 year old only child), but there are definitely some mums on here with large age gaps between children.

    I'm going to edit the title of your thread (hope you don't mind?) in order to attract more responses.

    Thank you for that
    Are you not going back for a second child?

    No, I'm not going back for a second. I have a list of reasons a mile long (!)

    Seriously though, I had my first and only child when I was 31 years old and I had significant complications resulting in my son having to be delivered prematurely. It was a rough journey. I would have gone through pregnancy again if I had an overwhelming urge to have another child, but that urge has simply not happened for me.

    There is a very small part of me who would have liked to give DS a sibling, but largely I'm content with our decision.

    Oh no I’m so sorry to hear your trouble and hey he gets to have you all to himself forever so I’m sure that he is more than happy with that
