O.K. so most of you mamas have BTDT with regard to pregnancy and childbirth. Can you guys weigh in on something that I've been thinking through the past couple of days?
I've really been having these feelings that I don't want to do this whole pregnancy thing again. Is it just because I've pretty much been pregnant for almost a year now (counting my M/C) and I will change my mind once the baby is here? Or is it a valid feeling? DH and I were discussing this last night because we will definitely be avoiding for the near future after Ava is born because of things going on in our family life regarding my step-kids but will my feelings change? Will I start to want another baby when Ava gets a bit older?
It also doesn't appear to just be a "I don't want to be pregnant again" thing either. I'm feeling very protective of Ava recently and can't imagine her having to "share" DH & I w/a baby sibling and she's not even here yet! Some of that is probably coming from watching my sister trying to juggle my two nieces this past weekend. They are 23 months old and 7 months old and I just kept thinking that it will be great when they are older but now it's just crazy for everyone!
Is it just hormones?
