    I'm grasping at straws but need a bit of inspiration.

    OH is now 48 and not keen on continuing TTC. Says he is too old.

    He has no kids of his own, but I have a son from a previous relationship. He loves him with all his heart and treats him as his own. The perfect father figure.
    How can I show him that age isn't a factor? Being a father is beyond explanation and is worth it?

    How did you ladies convince him for another?

    I need to ask a friend of mine, her husband was 60 when she conceived with their 1st son.

    My dh is 52. He says he definitely feels his age and sometimes just wanted to be a grumpy old man and should be past this stage now. I say its not my fault he left it later to have kids :haha: anyway, I'm not sure what it was the convinced him in the end, he had wanted to give up trying for ds5, but continued for my sake, then after ds5 he was joking about the next one and didn't take a whole lot of convincing.

    As you know we are older parents too. Nick never needed convincing, we tried for so long before we had the boys.
    Thing is, by all accounts your OH already IS a dad to your son and being one again won't change that by much. The baby stage is hard, whether you are young or old but it also goes by in a flash! A bittersweet fact as we all know. So if he is not too old to be a dad to Thomas, who is after all not that old, then why not to another little one?
