(Children mentioned). Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and support. I just turned 42 march 12. My twins are going to be 4 july 11 and my oldest soon 24 and 23 and getting ready to have my 4 th grandbaby. And i feel very blessed but i still would love another one. Am i selfish??? Im probably going to be cliser to 43 when i get to do ivf again but thats ok. I just sometimes feel like im being selfish wanting more at my age when gods blessed me already so much. Thanks again ladies!!!! I love this board. I wish all of you many happy and heatly blessings!!!

If you have room in your home and your heart (and being practical, your wallet) ... Go for it! There's a fair bit of selfishness in having kids, but I don't think that's a bad thing ;)

I love this board,too! It literally changed my life. I learned about my clinic from other members here, and that clinic helped me have my precious second dd :)

I turned 44 in Jan. We just did our second unsuccessful FET. Our 5th grandchild was born last Saturday and there is another due in September. My bio kids are 26, 25 and 22. My DD is the oldest, has 3 of our beautiful grandbabies and is our biggest supporter. She actually posted to this thread and she checks up on me, lol. She is mommytocienna. There is NOTHING wrong with wanting more. My DH has 4 bio kids aged 16 to 20. Both of our youngest sons, aged 22 and 16 live with us along with our granddaughter who is about to be 3. They are both very supportive of us as well. We have more than enough love to give and room in our home for a child of ours together and I believe are going to try one last time to get one. The money to support the child isn't the problem, its the thousands of dollars to make one that is tough, lol. I say you do what feels right in your heart and in your life. NO ONE can tell you when your family is complete except you and your DH. I wish you TONS of luck and hope that you get your hearts desire. :)

Never doubt the concept of a true soulmate until you have experienced. There is nothing like it.
Hoping to have our dream come true......... a child to raise together
