Someone please slap me and tell me I'm dumb....

So my baby is 11 weeks old in Friday. :. I have been trying to convince DH we should get pregnant again August or September. He thinks I'm crazy.

My siblings and I are all super close in age. I work at a school so timing wise this would be great. I would have that summer off to be with my babies.

I also am afraid of being super sick and tired and not able to play with my LO while I am pregnant.

Why do I have such baby fever! The problem is my baby is sooo good and sleeps throufh the night, so I feel a 2nd wouldn't be too hard. Which I know is wrong and that one probably will be up all night or something.

Anyone else have the baby fever?
It also took over a year to get pregnant due to my pcos so I think that's part of my fear too

    Oh, I have it, too. And DH wants another one soon, too, haha. I want them close in age, and we both want 3 or 4. I had a pretty uneventful pregnancy and DD is a great, easy baby.

    Sorry...I'm not talking you down, haha, but at least you're not alone!

  • Ha I'm the exact opposite. Since DS has been such a handful, I'm thinking I may not want another one EVER! I originally wanted 2, but I'm now thinking 1 would suffice.

  • My older kids are 18 months apart. Our daughter was a super easy baby. We both wanted another right away. My doc had me wait 6 months because I had a section. We waited 10 months and got a BFP the first time! Our second is a boy but they are super close. We wanted four doorsteps...but it took 7 years to get a BFP FOR number three. It is fun to have th older kids to enjoy the baby this time. We had such a traumatic pregnancy and delivery but I would be lying if I said I would love to try for number 4!

    Well, glad that if we couldn't help talk you down, we could at least help you plead your case with him, haha. :)

    This is me and DH exactly. I am at least rationalizing since this is our first that I want to wait until she is at least 6 months so we will have her whole first year to enjoy her, but we aren't exactly preventing it happening sooner than 6 months. Wink

    Yes, you are crazy! We might start thinking about it in another year or so, but not right now! Both my husband and I were 18 months apart from our siblings. I don't know how our parents did it! Our LO was not easy and the first 4-6 weeks were very rough. That might have something to do with it. I also want my body to take a break and for me to be able to get back in shape before putting the lbs back on. I am also focused on my career and want to achieve a few things before commiting to another one. I got preg right away so am not worried about it taking a long time.
  • Wait till you hit the 4 month wakeful before making that decision. ;-P

  • The 4 month what??? The way you say it sounds not so good.... Lol

  • Oh you are so not alone! We have already started talking about baby names and lo is 2 months old today!

    I think though for me it is because I have had 2 m/c AND it took so long to get pg because of my pcos.

    Or maybe I just have perpetual baby fever... lol
