Another baby??
Mon, 05-12-2003 - 1:11pm

A quick background on me, since this is my first time here.

I have 3 children, 2 years, 20 and 23. Notice the gap! *L*

I found out I was pregnant about a month after I graduated the "baby"

I was and still am in heaven, he is a true godsend!!

I now am the grandmother of 4 and soon to be 5. My son has two nephews, older than he is and 2 nieces that are younger. I am not sure if he needs any playmates, but think I would like to have another.

I am 41, will be 42 in November. I am in great health, and had no trouble whatsoever with my little boy.

I am a little nervous-I am not sure if my husband is ready for another one yet, he is finishing his bachelors degree, for another 1 1/2 years. That will put me at 43, just conceiving.

What experiences has everyone had that has gotten pregnant at 43???

I just have such mixed emotions, is that normal? I want another one, but I am enjoying my 2 year old so much, at this age you realize just how fast they grow, I savor every minute with him. I am not sure if I am ready to share that time yet. Is that selfish??

Ok, the novel is done. Would like some opinions, please.
