We are going to start trying to conceive this coming September but I am so scared. Some of the reasons that I feel so scared:
2. My age, I am 35
4. Starting over
I have to daughters already that are 18 and 11. I am more nervous now then when I was 16 and 24 when I had them. I am with the best man ever, we are financially secure and I am in such an awesome place in my life but yet I feel more scared now then I did with both of my pregnacies.
I dont know why I feel this way. Anyone else feel this way?

It’s because you’re old enough now to know everything that can happen!
You’re also old enough to see the impact you and the world can have on your kids, so you feel a deeper sense of personal responsibility for *bringing* a child into this world.
Don’t focus on any of that. Just close your eyes and remember what it feels like when they curl up against you and press their little face into the side of your neck!

@3xaCharm: You are so right, I know very well what the world is like since I am going through the empty nest stage and to enter the new born stage at the same time has me so scared. But that feeling of your baby moving inside you and the feeling of holding them is amazing.
Thank you for reminding me of that. 🙂 I am still scared but nice to remember those days.

One of my dear friends is in the same situation as you. She has 2 boys, 17 & 18 though by 2 different guys. She was married twice before to some real losers. She met her Darling Husband and he’s older (40s) and doesn’t have kids. She just found out she has to have a hysterectomy and has accepted that they will adopt. I also just found out she’s a grandma by her oldest son.
She’s just excited to finally be in the right relationship with a wonderful, religious man and they WILL have kids. She’s told me her fears about having them when the nest is pretty much empty but it’s something they want together so it doesn’t matter. I say go for it!

@texasbee: Thank you, I am happy to know that other woman are walking in my shoes so to speak. He doesn’t have any kids either so I know he wants one.
