I have grandkids and want a baby

I am 38 recently divorced and am in a new relationship.Last month we had a brief time when we thought I was pregnant. Turns out I am not but now I see just how excited I was. I have 3 grown children and three grand children soon to be 5 come Feb . Yes I know its strange to be 38 and have that many but got married at 16. My boyfriend is open to the idea. But I am bouncing back and forth does anyone else go through this? Or am I just insane

Imo, it's insane. I can't imagine starting all over with parenting when already having grandkids. I'd focus on being a grandma. But you do what you want.

Not strange at all. DH was 40 when we had DS. We will likely be having kids and grandkids at the same time.
He is 44 now and we aren't done.

I don't think it's weird at all, 38 isn't that old.

It's fine to want things. But making the wise choice for your existing family is the priority.

If you can handle it and all your ducks are in a row, then go for it.

Just try to approach the subject more logically and not react solely on your emotional responses.  Think about the practical sides to having a new baby.

Good luck!

I couldn't do it. My kids are nearly grown and the thought of starting over freaks me out. Not only does it freak me out makes me think about my husband on how he feels about his only sibling who is 16 years older then him. He looks at her as a mom more then a sister.

I'm 36 and pregnant....I guess it depends on if you really want to start over raising kids or if you want to be done and enjoy your grand kids, and if your BF really wants a child.

I would cry if I had to start over..lol just snuggle your grand babies more. But really, that's a personal choice and up to you.
