April 2013 Moms

Oh DH.....

So with all my hormones of course I am baby crazy and already thinking about having another... But I know better and want to wait at least a few more months.

Then, last night DH told me he was ready to make baby number 2!  REALLY?!?! I expect it from me but from him?!  He said he was in baby mode and was ready.

So, now I am thinking about it! lol I miss being pregnant and honestly don't really remember it.  It seemed like I was pregnant forever waiting for my LO and now I don't remember.  Everything seems unreal

I know we have discussed us ladies being ready but has anyone's SO or DH said they were ready?

  • My aunt and mom said.. "So we decided, you need to have another right now.. no waiting for 2 years."

    My husband has wanted to try for #2 the day I left the hospital... I was like "What?! Please talk to me when my stitches are healed, damn."

    I am the only one who is hesitant, but I am playing with the idea of trying in Feb, so I can perhaps have an X-mas/New Year baby.

    I got pregnant with my first in March 2009 and he was due Xmas Day and was born on New Years Eve!

    Now back to the original question. I'd like to have a third and I'd also be ready to get pregnant now. My DH is adamant we are done though, and I since I had another cs with this baby it's recommended to wait a year before getting pregnant again. I get all nostalgic since I got pregnant with DS2 this time last year.

  • OP - I totally know what you mean about not remembering being pregnant - isn't it weird? I feel exactly the same way!

    When I first had LO - I was ready to go for number 2 right away... Then I came To!

    I realized I want a little bit of time to myself - I want to tone up and look good again.... And I want some time to enjoy my adult life. Some nights out - some wine, some suishi etc. I know once #2 comes along getting childcare will be that much harder and we'll get that much less time to ourselves.

    That being said I'd like to go for number 2 next August. I know DH will want to before that so we may have to comprimise, but being that it's my body that will be sacrificed for 9 months and then for BFing after - so this one may need to be on my terms ;)

    DH always said 2 yrs apart. Now he's being snarky and saying 10 or 20 yrs whenever someone asks him.  He's 41 already so I know he's joking but it doesn't make me happy when he "jokes".  I do 95% of the work anyways so he has no reason to want to space them out further.

    I want to BF for a year and I'd even be up for longer if DS wants it still so that may limit when I can get pregnant. we'll have to see.

    This is me too. I would like a third but DH wasn't sold on a second, so a third is really unlikely. We will see.

  • We definitely want a second one - but we want them about 3 years apart.  I'm in no hurry!
  • My hubby was ready the day we left the hospital and since I'm the one dealing most with the "newborn phase" he is still ready.

  • My DH is ready too, has been since the second we got home with LO.  And on Sunday he said to me "I'd like to also consider a third," when we were pretty FIRMLY set on just two.  Silly man. 

    I think we are planning to start trying again in October - I know it will be hard with two little ones, but I also kind of like the idea of getting all the sleepless nights out of the way quickly and then being done with it.
