Hi all,

My name is Stacy and I am new to this board. I just turned 40 and I have 2 girls, Haley (7) and Kara (3). After I had Kara, I was sure that I was done having children. DH really wanted another, mostly because he wanted to try for a son. But now that I have started to get rid of our baby things... I really am wanting another baby now. And of course, now DH says that we are too old. It took us over 2 years to get pregnant with our last baby, and I am worried that it will take even longer now.

We still have not decided for sure to TTC, but I wanted to get to know others my age who are going through the same thing.

Welcome, Stacy! What cute kids you have. I think that your chances are very good since you've already had two children and as others have said, you're a youngun at 40! Good luck with your decision.

I think I might be the baby of the board only because technically I am cheating by being here. But the 35+ board didn't feel right - and I'll be 40 in less than 4 months anyway.

Welcome Stacey! You will feel right at home here right away I suspect.
