i'm right there with you. in fact i donated 3 bins of maternity and baby clothes this morning while hormones allow. i wonder when this urge to procreate will ever disapper or lessen, or perhaps it is the feeling behind many a wistful look in grandparents' eyes...

me me me! within minutes of the birth, I said, "I could totally do that again...not right now though." I haven't talked to DH about it though. It will be at least a year since I didn't get my period back until DD was 20 months (but then again I hope I'm not nursing DS several times a night at that age.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who already has baby fever!

I can't quite understand logically why I would want to do that again. I had an incredibly difficult pregnancy that left me barely able to walk, or sit, or stand, or lay... I had an extremely pathological birth that I am still trying to recover from on the most basic of levels at 8 weeks pp. Yes somehow I think it's a good idea to do it again?! I'm even wondering how long I can hold out...

Am I nuts?

This is the FIRST time I have not had baby fever soon after the baby was born.
In fact, I am enjoying watching our baby develop, and cherishing every moment as "the last time" I will see it -- without feeling sad!

Really, I don't think I can handle going through the whole ordeal of pregnancy again. Even birth now scares me after experiencing a shoulder dystocia last time. And besides, the thought of now planning for the future rather than starting from scracth with another child makes a lot of sense for us now. Half a dozen - 3 boys + 3 girls - is just absolutely perfect in every way!

DD is 10 weeks old and I told DH today that if I wound up pregnant I would certainly not be sad.

Logistically speaking, I'd prefer wait for it to happen until at least Christmas but hey... you never know.

I'd like less than 2 years between the first 2 and then a 3-5 year gap, then 2 more close together.

No way! It's weird because I had a picture perfect pregnancy. No real illness or any troubles. I was able to exercise all the way through. I also had a pretty good labor. Yeah, it hurt, but we made it and it wasn't the worst pain that I could have imagined.
So even though nothing physically would stop me from having another- it's this whole newborn phase that I do not want to repeat. I want a whole night's rest or even a night of just waking up once. DS is reverting back to waking up every two hours and he won't nap, so I feel like I never get a break. It's this newborn phase that I do not want to repeat. Pregnancy- sure, Labor- it was only a day, Newborn- ugh. No I do no want to do it again just yet.
