December 2012 Moms

The next one....

I admit I am pretty obsessed with my baby, maybe overly so, but it seems like everyone's 1st question after the typical "is he sleeping through the night yet?" is when are you guys having your next one. I'm always like "dude let me enjoy this one for a little bit". 

So my question to you guys is:

1) Are you one and done, do you already have other children and this baby is your last one, or do you plan to have more- and if so how far apart do you plan for your children to be/how far apart are your children.

2) I am also open to hear about any witty comments you might have when people ask you this question, if no one has asked you this question I will take it as a hint that I am too obsessed with DS and I need to have another one quickly.

We plan to have 2 to 3 kids and I want them to be about 3 or so year's apart (although it took us 6 months to get pregnant so I am not set on the exact number of 3 years) so I think we will start trying again in the spring of 2015.

Re: The next one....

  • 1) This is our first, and we're not sure about more...ideally we'd like them, but it would require us to move and DH wants us both to have "careers" instead of "jobs" before we talk about more

    2) I always just tell them we're gonna see how 1

  • 1) This is our first and we both come from families of 2 so we're not sure if we want 1 or 2 more. We're hoping to have them 2-4 years apart but you never know so we'll be trying for #2 February next year.

  • I am constantly surprised at the frequency of the question of having another. I usually say, "one is plenty", or "we are just enjoying our time with him and we'll discuss it when he's older". But the truth is, I *think* I am ok w/being one and done. DH is

  • 1) This is our first child.  We plan on 1 more, probably in 2 years or so.

    2) The one question that boggles my mind is when people ask "Is he a good baby?", it's like what as opposed to a "bad" baby?  Yes, he's horribly bad, so bad he's

  • I always thought I would want 2 kids, but after having DS I'm leaning towards being one and done. I think DH would like to have another because he thinks DS needs a sibling to play with. I just don't have any desire to go through this newborn phase again.

  • 1) We want like, 5 kids, so we're not done. I'd like for them to be about 2-3 years apart; basically, I want DS to be able to communicate what he needs before adding another baby in to the mix.

  • 1. We're planning on 12 more. I came from a family of 4 and SO a family of 3, so we'd at least like 2. That said, I did the math for daycare and, holy cow, it'll be expensive.

  • This is our first, and we definitely want more. I'd like to have the next in 2015. Less than 3 years apart, and DH would be far enough along in his career for me to switch to casual at work and avoid child care.

  • DS is six and I think it's a good age difference. I always wanted three, but I'm good with two. I was actually good with one, but am so happy dd came along.

  • DD is my 2nd child. She was born 12/5/12. DS was born 12/10/10, so they're almost exactly 2 years apart. We wanted 2, but it wasn't planned to have their birthdays sooo close. If we had the money, I would consider a 3rd, but as of now, we're done, and I'm

  • DD is #2. We have talked about having 3. DH wants his boy but he says he would be happy with 3 girls as well. The girls are 2 years and 4 months apart. So far I like the age difference. If we have another, I think it's going to be awhile from now. We w

  • We have two, they are 15 1/2 months apart.  No plans for another, although IF we do it will be in 5ish years and no sooner.

    When people ask, I just say, "we shall see...I don't know..."  I don't mind the questions.  Who cares?
