Hi Ladies, I'm new on here and thought I'd ask your advice. I recently married for the second time and we have been ttc for a few months with one mc. We have 4 boys between us, my husband's son is an adult and mine are younger.
My step-son's wife popped round today to tell me they are ttc........which was a real surprise as they were adament they weren't going to have any kids.
Should we give up and accept that we will soon be grandparents, or keep trying and have grandchildren and children the same age?

i would keep trying if its some thing you both want why stop just because your step son's wife says they are trying xx

Just worried that it will upset them, we are very close and don't want to cause trouble.....she actually came round to ask if I would look after her baby because she plans to go back to work pretty much straight away!
Thanks for your positive replies it's lovely to hear the people don't think it would be too weird to be expecting at same time as daughter in law, do you think I should tell her we've been trying so it's not too much of a shock?

I don't think it's weird at all, and U can't not do what U want for fear of what others might think..... even if they think it's weird to start with they'll soon get used to the idea! Good luck ttc and sorry to hear about your mc xxx

Hi mrsboysmum, do you mind me asking how old you are? It's just that Me and hubby have 3 boys between us, (his eldest is 18) and we've been trying since Sept 2011 and had 2 mc. (btw i'm nearly 42)
I feel a little bit like you; should we just give up now and accept it may not happen for us?
like others have said do what makes you happy; don't think anyone else, this is your life!
good luck xx

Hi Carioke, I'm 39 and my hubby is older. Was reading your other posts and we do seem very similar! It's just pretty draining ttc and I am seriously wondering if it would be better to just be happy with what we got?????
I'm going to have as break if there's no bfp this month as hubby is going away for a month in June next year and don't want to be alone with 3 kids and a tiny baby or 3 kids and pg.
Good luck though and I hope you get a sticky bean soon x x x x x x

Hi Micro, She says they can't afford for her to be on smp, but then........I can't really afford to be off work either and I'm a teacher so it's not too easy to have just one day a week off!

Thankyou x You're right it is really draining!! I've just found out my friend is pregnant; I'm really pleased for her but so jealous! I worked out that I've been pg twice since they've been TTC!
I've decided I'm going to TRY and not think about TTC anymore and totally leave it to fate and mother nature!!
