    Lol Ive got 2 kids, a boy and a girl . I wasnt broody ever, those pregnancys just happenend, where as now im actually Broody! how strange. Yeah i love my job plus ive just taken another route in my life which means I will be even more busy! ( maybe im keeping busy to dismiss the feelings!) lol i dont know
    what freaks me out is ive never had these feelings about wanting one.

    My OH would love a child as my 2 are from prev marriage. He doesnt have any,he sees mine as his own. But underneath im sure he would love one.

    PLUS i dont have room for a baby! id have to move!

    Silly feelings, hope it will pass!

    It probabaly wont unfortunately and maybe some of the feelings you are picking up from other half, dont have to move for another baby, just manage your space that you have well. trust me on this, i married with 5 boys in 3 bed house and my living room still looks like i have no kids, apart from pics that is. lol.

    Well move then...

    Sounds like you have already made up you mind, why put it off jump into bed now!:thumbsup:

    i agree, its unlikely you'd catch straight away anyway, unless hubby has super sperm. lmao

    It must be your age. I am 32 and have two boys - aged 4 and 6 ( a right handfull ), but I get twinges when I really want another baby. I'd like a girl 'cos I know once my boys get older they wont want to hang out with me! I'd probably end up with another boy! I miss being pregnant, I mean you feel like **** but it is an amazing time!

    pcnutta I can sympathise 100%. I'm older than you, 38, and my kids are 15 and 12. I'm starting a PhD in September, I absolutely love what I do and can't believe how lucky I am to be getting the opportunity to pursue a career in what I love. I'm getting married to the man of my dreams in November, and he doesn't want kids - the two I have are enough already. I was a stay at home mum with my other two and loved every minute, and while I know having another baby, t my age, and with all the opportunities I have open to me would be madness I can't stop wanting one. I have been known to burst out crying when I see other people's babies, I really can't understand it and it's an awful feeling

    tessb,
    Its so strange feeling like this, and it happens when everything in life is going to plan! The worst time ever for me to be feeling like this.

    I just dont want to * ignore* it then regret not having another when im unable too!

    Everyone thinks i am mental.

    Yeah, it's the worst time ever for me to feel like this either. I really hope this passes soon as I hate feeling like this, and I have to just ignore it. At 38 I feel I'm way too old, OH doesn't want one, I'll never again get the opportunities I have now, I keep telling myself all these things, but it doesn't make the feeling go away, nor does it make it any easier I've been broody for just over a year now, surely it can't last forever!

    look on the bright side if you don't have another, you will never see a baby look you in the eyes and say "mommy" for the first time again..............if you don't have another you may regret it for ever, if you do you will only regret it at 3a.m ,, well that's my 5 eggs worth

    im 31 and have 3, 13yrs,10yrs and 8 yrs, i feel the same when i see young babes, i put it down to reminiscing (sp) for when mine where young, we would like them to stay young forever and sadly its not like that :-( - i think its just a female thing, an instinct, but it you want another go for it! - i would if i could :giggle:

    I am 37y, have 3 kids B/G/B aged 8,5 and 4. My missus would love another, and I think I would too sometimes, but pleased I've got three.

    Go for it. If you catch, you catch. If not, wahay, you had fun trying.

    3 is the magic number !!

    Hormones - can't beat them so start re-arranging your life:)

    It's strange how these things kick in, must be hormones or simply a womans natural feelings.

    I must admit to not being able to resist looking into prams etc but I really don't want another child I'm 45!!! I think it's more a case of I would love to be Nana in the near future!!

    im 27 with a 6 year old daughter and have to admit to feeling broody … im 27 with a 6 year old daughter and have to admit to feeling broody occasionaly...never lasts for me though...What does annoy me though is the amount of peoople who tell me Id better hurry up and have another as Im not getting any younger!!! :x



    I can sympathise with you about that but heed my warning.!!!! Being older may not mean you are running out of time but there is a significant increase of the chance of twins once you hit 30. Wish someone had warned me about that. 8( lol.

    awww, i was gonna offer my services pcnutta. hehe x

    well am 47 and have 4 girls and have still not got any time for myself and they are 21 17 16 16 babies grow into TEENAGERS !!!! I would give it a miss they are hard work when babies and even more work and worry now ! :roll:

    I think you should go for it,or maybe wait a while longer and see how you feeling,at 32,you nowhere near done yet by average ages for babies.You may regret it if you don't later on,and you certainly can't regret a child if you do go ahead and have another now. I've not got any space as it is here 2 bedrooms,we will make do even if 3 children about.
    I'm 28 with 2 children ( obvious by my username ) Connor 7 Cerys is 5,I'm def wanting to have 1 more,our parents are not pleased,my Mum said I was mad to go and have a 2nd,then when I got pregnant for 3rd time she not pleased,and after miscarrying she is like,there no way you should go and have another cos it happen again,you can't be down for having more children,be satisfied with what you got.
    I don't listen to any of this,when I have rarely listened to what I get told to do as I hate any1 trying run me.
    I'm sure there another one waiting for me when time comes right.

    im 31 and have 5,
    boy 12 and girl 11
    i didnt plan for them 2 and wasnt broody at all
    but after splitting up with there dad i got with my current partner and had a third child a boy kyle 4 after having him i have not stopped being broody!!i think its because i am happy now with current partner and i think im a better parent now im older
    i then had a boy stillborn at 22 weeks
    then had a 2 and a half year old boy and a 7 month old boy
    i would love another one a girl for my daughter & for us to have a girl together
    then i would like to think the broodyness would go :oops:

    Buy a pet?
    I've a cat called Frank you can have if you like???

    another thought u may always regret not having another baby but i havent heard anyone say they regret having another baby

    Banned

    well let me be the first then, i regret having another, i think many people do regret having another baby but feel it inappropriate to say

    I have heard people say the same thing, I reckon iot'd be tougher regretting having another than regretting not having another.

    I have 4 with my hubby and his 2 stepchildren, i was pregnant every yr since 1999 up until 2006. My hubby had the snip a mth before my last son was born, i sometimes wish he hadnt done it, especially under the cirumstances i am in now to when i was then.

    I say go for it, you only live once, life isnt a practise run its your one and only shot at things, things will go to plan around a pregnancy it has to no other way round it, plus there is that amazing feeling you get when you look at your newborn first ever time.
