Just thought I would pop in here.. I also struggle with the fact we are done.. I have 4 ranging from nearly 14 months to 10 and honestly think another may send me crazy.. as it is I have no time, constantly cleaning and sorting children out. The idea of never seeing that positive test or scans or waiting to meet your new baby makes me soooo sad I suppose it all has to end at some point though I think however many I had I would still have to fight this feeling.. it's tough!

I'm miserable because of it !!! I really want another and feel a bit cheated as I started late not by choice ... Kissed alot of frogs before I found my prince I had my first at 41 and second at 43 ... Now 44 .. I know how blessed and lucky I have been but it doesn't take the ache away !!! I think my biological clock only start ticking at 40 !!! Domestic help I've had two amazing pregnancies and still have very regular cycles ..... Temptation is there .... But Im too old ... I think lol....... Don't think this will go away till I'm actually unable to have any more

I feel this way too...never seeing those 2 lines again or having that exciting anticipation of a new baby arriving soon makes me feel so sad.
Also the fact that I'm 29 makes me feel that another baby is logical in a biological kind of way. I feel so blessed to have the 4 that I already have but I just can't help yearning for another....ah well.

At 29 you could still have another years down the line that's what I used to tell myself after 2 & 3 when I said I was done!😉 I'm 36 now so feel I need to stop telling myself that really! lol! Plus part of me thinks maybe I'm yearning for the whole experience again rather than another child.. altho obviously another hold would be loved and wanted as the other 4 all are. My friend has 8 and can't have anymore for medical reasons yet she's still desperate to do it all again.. I just think some people never feel done until their body says no x

I'm hoping in a few years my DH might change his mind but it's not looking promising he likes to remind me about 10 times a day that he doesn't want another. I think I just have to keep telling myself this is it for us because I don't want to get my hopes up that my DH will change his mind.
I think your friend is a good example of all of us....no matter how many we have we will always long for the whole experience just one more time!

Ok so I saw my friends new baby 1 week old _ OMG cute BUT here is the crazy thing despite being broody I felt nothing no broodiness etc yes OMG tiny lovely newborn but not my newborn so just wasn't the same

So I think I am mourning the fact that I will NEVER have a newborn again and not just general broodiness
