Hi all! I'm Jen. Nice to meet you!
My hubby and I are trying for a second, and the longer it takes to conceive, the more time I have to really think about it, and the thing is, I'm not so sure anymore! I go back and forth; I want my LO to have a brother or sister because I grew up with a little brother and we were/are really close, so I want that for her - the socialization, compromise skills, playmate, sounding board, best friend, and not to mention, the fact that they can eventually play with each other while I do MY thing. On the other hand, my LO is absolutely perfect and I love the one-on-one time I get with her now - I don't want to risk losing that or having her get jealous (which I know is inevitable). There's also the increased lack of sleep and DECREASE in available funds as soon as I'm sending two to day care since I work full time.
I'd love to know what everyone thinks the costs/benefits are of either situation (one or multiple). Any input would be great!
