I can't believe I'm posting in this thread! But here I am......
Please add me for 2011 September.
My story goes like this. I have a 6.5 month old at home. The first few months were really rough. He's a somewhat high needs baby and I had no prior experience. The sleep deprivation was awful and nursing really threw me for a loop. I expected every 2 hours, not every 20 minutes! Things are better now. He wakes up to eat twice per night, but my hubby and I each take a wake-up. His naps are all over the place lately, but he's having even better night sleep.
I think I want a baby because I want at least 2 children and I'm thinking to myself....well, wouldn't it be better to get all the awful sleep deprivation out of the way? Plus, I secretly think that my second baby is likely to be easier than my little guy. That's probably dangerous thinking though.
I'm a FT teacher, so I want to time the pregnancy just like I did the first time, so I can take the same amount of time off. It worked out to about 19 weeks between summer vacation and using a significant number of sick days. I could do that again if the baby was born in the summer of 2012, preferably mid to late June, just like my current baby.
