Hi Ladies,

I am so happy to be able to find this board. I just turned 40 and married for second time to a wonderful man (42). I have two children from prior marriage 7 and 14. We are going to start trying this month (my husband's first), I had no idea there were so many women over 40 trying to get pregnant, that's wonderful.

My only concern, if my husband's relationship is going change with the other two kids. He loves and takes care of them like they're his but sometimes there is this nagging feeling that makes me uncomfortable and wonder what if?

Anybody else out there with similar situation?

welcome to this board & good luck with trying!

This may be your husbands blood child but if he is loving & caring to yours I don't think you have anything to worry about. Have you discussed that what ever rules apply to your children they will apply to your new baby too? Sure your husband & you will be busy with this new baby & the older ones might be abit put out for awhile but that would have been the same if the first two children were your husbands.

Good luck anyway, I think everything will work out fine.

Lots of baby dust coming your way.

Welcome to the board!!! Glad you found us!!! I am not in the same situation as you are but I know I have spent to much time worrying about everything being right & waited atoo long to TTC. Then when we did start trying everything was harder. I would say go for it. I am sure your DH is a good man & loves the kids. I don't see why he would feel differently about them as I am sure he already has a strong bond with them.

Anthing we can do to help we are just a post away.
