It’s come to the point that my husband and myself are wanting to start trying for another baby again. It may sound stupid and most people and our family say that our family is big enough and with the history of problems do we want to go through what we have already been through again? And for some strange reason… I do, I want another baby.

It takes roughly 9-14 months for us to fall pregnant and because my body doesn’t work, doesn’t ovulate I have to have help by seeing a specialist and being put on injections or tablets.

Our family consists of:



Daughter 1 – 4 years old (5 pregnancy)

Daughter 2 – 17 months old } Twins (6 pregnancy)

Daughter 3 – 17 months old } Twins (6 pregnancy)

We were told we probably couldn’t ever have children but we have 3 beautiful daughters and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

We have had many problems throughout my pregnancies

Pregnancy 1 – Stillborn daughter

Pregnancy 2 – Miscarriage

Pregnancy 3 – Miscarriage

Pregnancy 4 – Miscarriage

Pregnancy 5 – Alive healthy daughter

Pregnancy 6 – Alive healthy daughters x2

And with my pregnancies that managed to have alive healthy daughters the pregnancy itself was scare after scare after scare, bleed after bleed after bleed, lost baby after no heart beat, bed rest upon bed rest upon bed rest.

With my stillborn daughter we were told that the infection was that severe that if I went any longer than I did it would have killed me and the baby.

My husband and I have an extra chromosome


Husband XYY

Which brings into fact that with the scenario’s we have a very slim chance of having a normal child and would have to go through having amniocentesis at 16 weeks like we did with pregnancy number 5 and 6.

But YES I want to have another baby!

My husband it worried because he doesn’t want to lose me and be a single dad looking after 3 children without his wife.

But we have always wanted a big family and if I couldn’t have any and was blessed with one daughter. Then along came twin daughters. What’s to say I can’t have more.

This time round its a bit different… We together have decided that we want more but we are not going to have help. I am not going to see a specialist and take injections or tablets. If I fall pregnant naturally we are all up for another baby. If it doesn’t happen naturally we are definitely blessed with 3 beautiful daughters.

X fingers I hope I can fall pregnant naturally and have no problems at all and as a result I have a beautiful healthy ALIVE baby girl or boy.
