um yes. It's kinda sad really.
I knew a mom growing up who LOVED babies. But once they got to be unruly toddlers she was not so enamored and had to have another babe in arms. The older kids wound up taking care of the youngers mostly since mom was always preoccupied with a new baby. It was just sad for the kids because she was not so much into the raising them, more just having babies.
I think some women are addicted to the attention that being pregnant brings. I know a couple women like that. As soon as they have a baby they are all "I want another baby!" Not to be judgemental, but I am kinda like, "The baby you already have needs your attention now."
Personally, I'm with previous posts. If I could skip the pregnancy but just have the labor/delivery I think I might have more kiddos. My first birth was a great experience. (Bradley birth at a hospital.) Hard work, but so worth it!
Of course I'm only on my second baby so we'll see how this one goes. My first son was colicky and "high needs" the newborn phase was very very trying. The toddler phases have been equally wonderful and trying as well... he is so very "spirited"! LOL
I love the idea of a big family, but I'm not sure I'm down for all the work. Maybe if I have a more mellow child next time I'll feel more confident about it. Right now I'm just taking it one at a time.
Obviously not a bumpaholic here! LOL
