I am now 37 years old. I had my 2 boys as 20 and 23 years of age. After being a single parent for 14 years (I left the boys' father whilst pregnant with my youngest due to his violence) I have been in a relationship for nearly a year and a half. This man is younger than me and doesn't have any kids of his own. He puts no pressure on me to have more children yet for a while now it's all I want. Yet all I can think of is other people's reactions. I remember years ago my auntie made a comment about my child bearing years are over. With my boys being old I am concerned about the age difference between them and any other children. Yet I still feel as young as I did many years ago. Am I selfish for wanting more when there are people who can't conceive?
