    Anyone else in the same boat? I have an almost 8year old and a 3 year old. I would get trying now but hubby wants our 3 year old sleeping better. We also need to move to a bigger house.

    To be honest it’s not a certainty we’ll have a 3rd. I go back and forwards on it.

    Hiya I'm the same. I have an 11 year old and a 16 month old and WTT #3 (#2 for OH)

    We're mainly waiting on a move too, but time just drags doesn't it?

    Hi! I’m 37 and would love a 3rs. My son is 8 and my daughter is 6. But it seems much more difficult this time, with lots of chemicals.

    Hi I'm 41 and pregnant.
    It did take us 11 months and 4 chemical pregnancies (possibly 5) but we got there in the end.

    Good luck for when u start trying

    So true mummy_ellie, we should be able to move this year but now the housing market has gone crazy I’m worried we won’t be able to afford what we want.

    congratulations on your pregnancy suggerhoney!

    Hi, I'm 36 and I have 13 year old twin-step sons, a 10 year old son and a 7 year old son and I am currently waiting for my husband to decide if he wants to have another (we don't currently have any together). xx

    @Suggerhoney Congrats on your pregnancy! Did you do anything differently the month that you conceived? I'm 35 and had a miscarriage 8 months ago. I keep feeling like my age is against me and that it won't happen naturally or on its own.

    I hope I can join in :) I’m 33, so not quite at the 35 year mark yet. However, my husband and I are also thinking of going for our 3rd. My ds is 6 and dd is 5. I’m also apprehensive about going for our 3rd because of my age. Although having a baby in your 30s is incredibly common and usually not a biggie, especially now that many women are become first time mothers after 35, I can’t help but be nervous. It took us 10 months to conceive our first and my hormones have always been a bit whacky (periods are often all over the place). So let’s see how it goes. My husband and I have discussed and we’ve decided to take it easy and not get our hopes up. We are happy with what we have but it would be nice to have a 3rd :) I wish you all the best on your TTC journeys ❤️

    Hi Rapunzel, of course you're welcome. A large part of my confusion is the age gap which is getting ever bigger, and the trouble is that even though I still want another it gets harder to think about going back to the baby stage the further we get from it this time. Not just in terms of sleepless nights but also nursery fees and the limits on what we can do as a family.

    I do worry too about the implication of getting and staying pregnant now I'm older. Also, since my last pregnancy I had a car accident and even though I'm very lucky to be functionally pretty normal I worry how my body would cope with the extra weight and strain.

    An easy going approach seems great. Good luck with it all x
