Do you ever have a difficult time coming on JM because of the new babies being conceived and born? Or are you just happy for the family? Are you also a little sad for yourself being done with that part of your life?

I went back & forth on these emotions for awhile. Wanted more, done, wanted more, done. I think I am in a happy place right now and I'm no longer feeling that sadness or longing for another. Am I over the hump? Will it stay that way? Right now I just feel happiness for all the expanding families. But I must admit there was a time I felt some sadness for myself.

I am always happy for those expecting but there are moments where I realize I will never have a new little one, the good thing for me is that a lot of my friends children and neices and nephews are having babies so I am getting my newborn fix

I think it's normal to know you are done and still have those tainted when someone announces they are having a new little one.

I'm not sure I've been 'done' long enough to know. Right now I'm happy with my family, excited for the next phases and I love hearing new baby annoucements.

I am happy for anyone who has an announcement. I am content with my kiddos. I do miss pregnancy and little babies ~ BUT ~ it's that time I miss. I don't want to do it again. I am too old. Getting pregnant was too hard. I am glad to be out of the baby stage. My niece is two so she is my baby fix.

I felt maybe a twinge when my youngest was littler, and it did take me a little time to be 100% happy about being done.

I am thrilled for new babies for other people, but totally not jealous at all. New babies were great, but now that I'm out of the baby toddler stage, no way I'd wanna go back or do it again.

I actually hang out at the AIP board quite a bit and live vicariously through them LOL.

I often have dreams of getting a bfp or having another baby though. but I know that 4 is enough and am happy with my decision to have my tubes tied.

I'm new to the board, but I've participated in other boards before and I'm really happy to hear about new babies. I really feel like my family is complete and I'm happy to be done with that stage. I think about my miserable morning sickness and the dreaded 3rd trimester and I'm grateful to not be in that stage anymore.

I sometimes wish I knew what that felt like.
