Hi ladies,


Great to see so many of us on this board. I've been reading from time to time and now that i'm 39 and know I want one more, I think it's fit that I join in.

Welcome Valerie! You've come to the right place. I don't think you're nuts for wanting a 4th. I would have had a ton of kids if I had the time. I had my first child at 38.5 and have been TTC#2 since I was 40.5. I am now 42 but don't let my stats frighten you. Then again, your mom had one at 45, so you might be able to get PG over 40 with relative ease. I sure hope so. You will find a nice group of friendly, supportive and knowledgeable women here. Good luck to you in your TTC journey.

Welcome, Val! Don't worry about what anyone else thinks -- you and DH are the only ones whose opinions matter.

Hi Valerie,


I never thought I wanted a big family but it just evolved. We started our family when I was 30 and DH was 31. We had a DD, then had 2 Ds's...when I was 38 I knew I wanted another baby. Boy was it hard to convince Dh though..he kept saying we had a "perfect" family. While we were talking about it we
