Anyone crazy like me?

I know that now is not even close to the right time, but I can't stop thinking about having another. This is seriously crazy talk because I really didn't like being pregnant and I have had a rough go at motherhood. I have felt this way basically since DS was born and have been waiting to just get over it, but I haven't. I know that I should just put it out of my mind because its not the right time and thinking about it is not productive. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else is dreaming of another so soon...

Re: Anyone crazy like me?

  • No way. I also wanted two kids and now I rethinking that thought. Everyone says my son is an easy baby. He is always happy, but I feel so tired. Ask me in a few years.

  • Yup! Count me fully in baby craze!! I am ready for number 2!

    Craziest part is we are actually planning to start trying again in September!

  • Kind of. I definitely want another one, which I was not at all sure of before. But I don't want another one now. We'll start trying for number 2 in a year or so.

  • Absolutely! DH and I have been thinking about this since E was born, lol.  But we are FINALLY having our wedding reception in May, so we are going to wait to actually "try" until at least November, so that I am not about to explode at my own reception.

    I am. I'm just waiting for the go ahead from my husband. He's not having any of it though. He's one and done, but I think she has to have at least one sibling.

  • I am! I have a Paraguard though because I don't think we could handle #2 quite yet. I want at least three though, and I want them to be close enough in age to be playmates.
  • DH wants to try for another one already. Sometimes I think I want to, but usually I want to wait a little yet. Plus I haven't even gotten a period since DD was born anyway, so I don't think TTC right now would be too successful.

    I know, I forced myself to fill my BCP yesterday for the same reason! Never mind I haven't gotten a PP period yet. My body is smarter than my heart it seems.

    Thanks for your replies, ladies, glad to know I'm not the only one!

  • I want to wait between kids but I wish I didn't want to wait because I want another so bad! AH!

    I wish that I was more present. It must be hormones. I already have a beautiful exciting, wonderful daughter that needs so much attention and energy for me that I feel exhausted some days. Why do I want another so bad?

    I certainly feel crazy, Being of two minds about this subject. But you are not alone. 

    Every time that I wish that I was already pregnant with number 2, I try to remind myself to enjoy number 1. Just enjoy number 1.

    As much as I am looking forward to being pregnant with another, I am also looking forward to a break between BF this one and pregnancy with the next one. Its been over a year since I had my body all to myself.

  • I am ready for the second! And third! They grow too fast
  • Yes! I am wanting to be pg again. I loved every minute of it. Dd is high needs though. We will be waiting if dh is ever ready. I don't even know if we will be able to conceive again.

  • Yup . count me in too.

    We  got PG with DD on the first try, so was a bit earlier than planned! But it's crazy to think it DS was about this age when I got PG  again. Maybe that's why I'm thinking of number 3 .

    I loved being PG but 2U2 is a huge task for me. I'm a single mother in all but name. Dh spends just 3 hrs a day with them cz of work, and as Im EBF I do all the night feeds too.

    We do want more, but it really not would be fair to those we already have. And there is NO WAY we would ever have an ooopsy baby.

    Ahh well...

  • With DS, around this time I started feeling that way. Moreso once he was STTN consistently.We decided to start trying right before his first birthday and were successful right off the bat (found out about DD 3 days before his first bday).

    This time? I get heart palpitations thinking about being pregnant again anytime soon. 2u2 is no walk in the park. 

    We're pretty sure we'll have another one, maybe even two, but not for a few years.

    Yes. Take a break between! I BF DS up until about 15 weeks with DD. So, I've been pregnant or breastfeeding for almost three years. I also felt guilty bc DS self weaned during my pregnancy. I wonder if he would have kept going if I hadn't been pregnant. I plan to BF DD for as long as she wants.

  • I'm also thinking about # 2 but that would mean lots of sex... Not up for that part yet!! It still hurts and I don't have much desire. But, the idea of a second is always in my thoughts.
