Bridge Baby anyone?
DH and I have been married two and a half years, and known each other for 5. I'm 34, he's 37. We each have two kids of our own, aged 5-11. Things are going pretty well. So we've both really been on the fence about having a baby together. When we first met I switched BC from the pill to an IUD because I noticed I would stop taking it here and there, and I wanted to make sure I had a method that I couldn't tamper with, even subconsciously.
I find myself going through the baby itch massively right now...every where I look, someone has a new baby. I am also so in love with him, that I just want to have a baby with him. It's just looking into his eyes, and smiling, it's something I really want to share with him, and same him for me. The reason we're on the fence is I take a step back and say "What are you INSANE?" We have 4 kids, two exes and a partridge in a pear tree!! If we have a baby now, we'll be in our 50s when it is old enough to move out, and we can kiss every weekend alone goodbye. So obviously, with those thoughts, we're not ready...but I don't want to be not ready for much longer, because the clock is definitely ticking now.
Does anyone have any thoughts, experience or advice on this?
