I just found this board. I am Carol. I am 43 and have 5 children, ages 10, 7, 5, 3 and 10 months. I am hoping and trying for #6. I have only had my cycle once since my baby was born and she is still breastfeeding. I did conceive all of my other children while breastfeeding, so I am hopeful. Be encouraged ladies, I had a baby at 40 and one at 42! My extended family thinks that I am crazy for wanting another child, but my husband and my kids are looking forward to a new baby hopefully in the next year. Anyway, hello all!

Hi Carol and welcome!!! Your family sounds wonderful and I hope you get your 6th baby soon! (I am trying for No. 1 still...and I am almost 45. I'm a little panicked to tell you the truth!)

Carol:

What a wonderful, hopeful post. Thanks!

I am 40 and have three DDs and one angel (Nov 2006). Hoping there is one more out there for us too. :-)

thanks Stella,

I haven't really checked any of the other boards except tons of kids, but I haven't posted, just lurked a bit. I don't even really know what the playgroups are.
