I rarely get here because I am so busy but I have a question.

I am really desiring to have another baby. I am 41 and will be 42 in October. My husband and I will be married 22 years is August. Most people think I am crazy. My oldest is getting married in August.

I just love being a mom. I love having babies. I love being pregnant. I have always had great pregnancies. I have struggled with fertility our whole marriage. I just can't get over the desire for another baby. The older I have gotten the more fertile I have gotten. How strange is that?

Am I crazy to want another baby at my age? Rebekah will be 1 in June and my next oldest is Joseph at 3 1/2. I know if we decide I really need to try hard now.

I have always hated being pregnant. But I LOVE the kids. I am not big time in love with babies, but I loved raising my children. I have 3 teens, and a one yr old. I think you should have another if your man is up for it. Children are a wonderful thing. And your age is not a big deal. I know SOOOOO many women who have had kids well into their 40's. In fact, I know so many, that I am beginning to wonder if it is really true what they say about downs syndrome and after 35 thing. Anyhow, ghood luck.

I think that if your doctor says you're good to go, and you and your hubby want one, then GO FOR IT!!!! I love babies too and I wish that I could have had another one. My oldest is 24--25 in July. My hubby has 4 from 10-16, mine are 24, 20 and 16. More than anything else I regret that we couldn't have one of our own but I am already in menopause so it's out of the question. We've only been married a year and I started menopause about 3 years ago so...
But if you want to and you can, I say go for it. I wish you the very best!!! Let us know, too...and we LOVE pictures here!!!
