My grandma had a baby or two right around the time her oldest daughters were having their first babies. Anyway, I guess I'm trying to say it is "normal" in my family. My daughter was actually on her first month of trying when I got pregnant. We were hoping she would get pregnant too. She didn't and is still trying. I'm sure it will happen soon and our babies will be close in age. It will be fun!! That said....I'm pretty sure we are done after this one, as long as dh gets the big V and we don't have an oops.
Wow! That's an awesome story, thank you for sharing!! I really wish more people in society was that accepting! It would sure make me feel more comfortable about it!

Btw...my hubby was supposed to have had the big V before I got pg with our LAST child! Then he said he'd do it before she was born. She's now 5 1/2 yrs old and we're expecting again! Ha!!

Re: Any "older" pg mamas out there?

I'm just curious....

I completely respect everyone who chooses to let God determine how many children you have. I would like to know, however, if you think you may possibly change your mind if at some point later in your life if you may reconsider? Let's just say you are in your 50's or 60's? Or what if with each pregnancy your body just deteriorated to the point pregnancy was more painful and completely debilitating? If you were no longer able to take care of yourself or your other children? If you knew that if the chances of having another child would put the child's life at risk? I'm just throwing out scenarios here. Do you think that may some day change the way you view whether or not you get pg?

The reason I ask these questions is because that's what I'm asking myself. I'm 45 and thought I'd be done by now. God has blessed me multiple times, and has taken away multiple times. Each pregnancy has taken a huge toll on my body...both physically and emotionally. We have tried to prevent further pregnancies because of how hard they are on me. But, God has control! LOL And obviously when He decides to do something, it's going to happen! That's why I'm sitting here pg now! Granted, we weren't quite as careful the past couple months as we have been. But, anyway, at some point isn't it ok to start being aware of how my body reacts and do my best to stay healthy for the children I have already? And if I know having another is going to take away from them, is it really the best thing to do?

I'm doing my best to leave my entire life in God's hands. He expects us to take care of ourselves, too...our physical well being. Anyway, that's why I'm asking.
