I've got the baby fever bad, but I am hesitant to stop using protection... my last two were only 14 mos apart (the youngest is 9 mos now) and I dont even know if I'm o'ing yet (no period yet). But I feel so GUILTY even THINKING about it, because I want the youngest to enjoy being a baby, ya know? But this baby instinct is really REALLY strong. I absolutely love the whole process. There is also so much that can go wrong, I hate to "tempt fate".

Who knows, I may even have trouble TTC.. I had a m/c in July of 99 at 6 weeks, then TTC for 9 months before conceiving #2, then I didn't even TRY to conceive #3, I was nursing and dind't have a period.. I am soooo scared of having a hard time TTC again... For some reason I've got it in my head that if I don't get preg with the first O, that I will have a hard time TTC again.. the last time I was having "cycles" they were all screwy (long). I think I may have already ovulated.. my ovaries feel sore.

Anyway I am just venting.. Thanks for listening.

Mel, I don't think there are any hard and fast rules to the baby spacing thing. There are pro's and con's to having kids closely spaced or more further spaced. It sounds like you're in the stage of trying to figure out what is best for you and your family right now. I'm sure you find the right answer.

I know how strong the baby urge can be. Believe me- I've got it bad!

Good luck to you!

Chrissy, lucky mama to Noah (9), Lilah (6), Rowan (3) and Laney (1).

TTC is so emotional. Good luck with whatever you decide!
