I thought we were done...

DH and I thought we were 1 and done after dd#1, 5 years later, our sweet dd#2 arrived on the scene. Birth was painful and pregnancy was hard and maybe its hormones but 6 days out I already miss being pregnant and want to experience this amazing feeling again. Anyone else?

Re: I thought we were done...

  • I miss being pregnant, but at this point I am good with just one.  He is an easy baby, but with all of our issues breastfeeding and now with milk allergies, I am happy that we have only him and not a toddler or other child to take care of at the same time.

  • I miss being pregnant so much but I can't imagine ever doing this newborn thing again. It is way harder than I ever anticipated. Or more accurately it is hard in ways I never anticipated.
    SIGNATURE FAIL!!!!!!!

    Yup. I've been saying one and done the whole pregnancy. During my pitocin contractions and back labor, I kept saying never ever ever again.

    And here I am 8 days later missing him in my belly, and wondering if I should risk another diabetic AMA pregnancy, lol.

    But I haven't told my husband that. He really wants a 2nd.

    Sounds like we have similar stories! I had GD this pregnancy and awful Pitocin contractions and back labor. When they were cutting the episiotomy for this kids 97th percentile head I was crying that I was never doing this again...but now Im asking DH if we would need to wait till this kiddo is headed to kindergarten before we have another, which puts me at AMA.

  • In a way I miss being pregnant but the thought of labour and birth just scares the bejesus out of me. All in all I'm just happy she's an outside baby now.

  • I have three and want a fourth I just don't want to deal with pregnancy. Lol I also will wait for the fourth one if I decide I definitely want a fourth. I want the three I have now to be in school if I do have another. I sure don't miss being pregnant the only thing I miss is that I didn't have a period. I literally don't like anything at all about pregnancy.

    If I thought I'd go through labor again, I might think different. But since I ended up with a c section, and I doubt they'd let me do VBAC as a Diabetic, it's less scary.
  • Me!!! DH wants to be done. I told him we need to discuss... I'm just so afraid for a few diff reasons but so sad to think about not experiencing this again.

  • Heck no. Guess that makes me weird but I lived this whole pregnancy knowing it was my last. I am totally at peace with this being our last baby.

    I am totally done! We where supposed to be done after the second, my husband talked me into another. I refuse to have another baby! This pregnancy sucked and having a third is like torture.

  • I swore during my whole pregnancy that this was it. I have a 10 year old and an 8 year old and now a 4 week old. The pregnancy was high risk, I'm AMA and had GD. Yet, here I am thinking one more might be a good idea. Funny how quickly we forget. We'll see. I hate pregnancy though. I wish we could afford a surrogate. I could do baby stuff all day long. :-)

    I completely agree with this! Even after a difficult pregnancy with GD and PreE that resulted in an early induction that was 72 hours long including 6 hours of pushing, 2 loooong rounds of pitocin, and an emergency csection, I'm already dreaming of baby number 2. It's my SO who's hesitant to try for another. He says it's always the 2nd that's the hel! raiser in his family!

    I definitely want more, but I'm more afraid of pregnancy than I am delivery. I didn't like being pregnant. Praying the next one's better.

  • I would like to have another one in a few years time. Even though I had an easy pregnancy I am too busy with LO to even think about if I miss being pregnant. Even with lack of sleep I think I rather him here than back in the womb. He definitely makes me happy watching his milk drunk faces and seeing him develop.

  • I would do it again BUT I am 41 so the likely hood is very slim to none.  I even say this after going through GD, then  I started itching and they found out I had something else and had to be induced at 37 weeks, then my blood pressure sky rocketed and they thought I had the start of Pre E.   Cavin was born and spent 1 week in NICU with pneumonia.   
    Even after the short nights and long days..... yes.... I would do it again.  

    My parents would probably disown me, they thought I was crazy for having one at 41. 

    I disagree with the second one being the he** raiser.  My first was good and my second is a gem.   Other than at almost 11 we are now having mood swings that do not mesh well with my mood swings. :)

  • Sounds like I'm not alone :) I know for sure it's not in our super near future and maybe the pangs of wanting another will fade over time, but right now, despite how I was absolutely certain this was the last, now I just don't know!!

    Hell no!  LOL...  I am 39 and my pregnancies have been complicated.  I went to term with both but needed weekly US, bed rest, and this last pregnancy, I had extreme pelvic pain.

    I do not miss pregnancy in the least and I am totally enjoying my little newborn.

    Our family is complete.  :)
