New here - thought I'd say hello...

I'm an older mama and trying to conceive my 3rd child starting this month.  Almost 39 years old and wanting to make a baby with the love of my life!

I have 2 sons from a previous marriage and he has 2 daughters.  They're the same age so that adds a ton of fun to our family dynamic :smileyhappy:.    Our youngest kids are 11 and before the clock runs out - we thought we'd try for one together to complete our family.  (Actually we're debating having 2 total but I won't be greedy... 5 kids would be fine too!)

If it happens, we'll be thrilled.  If it doesn't - we'll be sad but we know we're blessed and whatever will be will be.

To make things even MORE interesting?  He had a vasectomy reversed in January!  So wish us luck.  As of this week - we are officially trying! 

So hello!  Nice to "meet" you!  Hope to get to know you a bit better in this journey.  Feel free to ask the old gal on the board any questions to boot... it's been a while since I was TTC but I remember it well and made good use of these message boards back then too.

*~*~*~ luck to all!! *~*~*~

Just wanted to say HI and Welcome!  i hope your stay is short and sweet :smileyhappy:

How do your older kids feel about adding a baby to the family? Have you even told them you're trying?  At least you have kids who are old enough to help out!

I am 29 trying for #2.  DD was born June 2011, so we're hoping our kids can be close in age.....but right now this is taking longer than anticipated.  Oh well, what will be will be!
