Is this normal? lol The past couple days I've been thinking how I can't wait to be pregnant again. That's crazy right? lol We likely aren't going to TTC for another year at least though.

Anyone else?

no, pretty sure one is the magic number for us.

I should probably be doing something else right now.

I'm feeling exactly the same way. I am going in for birth control on monday, but i feel really sad about it, almost tempted to cancel the appointment. Like you, we decided its probably best to wait another year though.

Normally (in the past), I know I want another baby right away. This time we're really thinking about it. My heart says "yes", my head says "I could give these three more attention and they'd each have their own room if we didn't."

I'm actually 90% sure we will try to conceive again and it will probably be as soon as AF returns. (Usually 7-8 months even while BFing.)

I love being pg, but I think O is the last. DH is ready for the next one. We're putting an offer in on a house on Monday so we'll be focused on moving.

I so wanted another in the early weeks. Not right away, mind you, but not feeling like two was it for us. I've changed my mind on that now, looking forward to the things we'll do as a family as our girls get older. We are open to a surprise, though. I just wouldn't want to get pregnant b/f baby is one and risk supply issues.

actually, I'm feeling like I'm done. I had thought before that 3 sounded good, but now that I have 2, it feels like enough.

Yep, I want another already! The thought of actually being pregnant and expecting another baby right now terrifies me, but I can't wait until we can have a little brother or sister for DS!
We really wanted them to be closer in age - not a year apart, but maybe 2 years? The thing I'm most worried about is weaning DS too early if my milk dries up when I get pregnant again, so that's really my first priority.

OMG NOOO!!! I'm done - labor and delivery was cake, but recovery has been just awful so I don't ever want to do it again. My boyfriend really wants more though - I told him to have it himself - and my parents want me to have more ...ugh.

Yes! The notion sends my husband into a panic but I do. I thought we were going to be a one child family, but now that I've had her, I've been hit by the need to have one more. I did not like being pregnant though, not one bit, so I can't believe I want to do it! I was not expecting to feel this way.

I'm starting to warm up to the idea. At the end of my pregnancy, I was concerned I would never want to have another baby again! But as Naomi has become more interactive and we've figured everything out, even with as colicky as she is, I kinda wish she'd been twins

We're planning to wait a few years, though, unless nature/God has other plans for us. We'll see how it goes!

If I had had my homebirth as planned, I would be wanting another one. But since things ended up so badly, I had decided no more. Which is probably a good thing, since my urologist says no more as well.

I sure as all heck don't want one now. But I do know in a couple years (3-5) we'll TTC. Especially knowing that the pregnancy was the crappy part....although I always heard if you had a good first baby your second one will be a hellion, and that scares me. lol. Especially since Aviendha has been so amazingly good.

But of course, if God has other plans, it's up to Him.

Yes, I do want another baby but, not just yet. When Poppy is about 2 I'll desperatley want another but, maybe by then DH will have gotten his vasectomy. We believe in only replacing yourselves but, I know I will want another, come on!! I'm a mama!!

Having a baby is hard but rewarding work. How could you not want to have another? These are my thoughts but, I totally respect others, it's not easy work.

Yes! I miss being pregnant and I would like to have another one. DS1 is already saying that he needs to have a sister and that we need to have another baby to give him one.

The thought of throwing up and having heartburn for nine months straight again is still too raw. It took me 9 years between #1 and this one, so maybe in 9 more years we'll try again!

Actually, I would LOVE to have another baby again in the next couple of years, but I don't think my body or my sanity could stand it. I wish pregnancy wasn't so difficult for me.

I'm feeling really crazy for thinking this, but yes. I've already ovulated twice (yesterday was the second time) which is crazy in itself. I was kind of freaked out that my EDD would be 12/19 from now ... not even a year apart. We aren't using foolproof birth control methods so what happens will happen. The main thing I worry about is being able to continue nursing DD throughout my pregnancy and beyond. DD1 got to nurse until 26 months. But I do want more kids and I'd rather have them when I'm younger... I'm already almost 34. I had a miscarriage between DD1 and DD2 so that is in the back of my mind too.

For us, DD1 was high needs (still is!)... DD2 is easy. What does that mean for #3?

I don't exactly want one right now but if it happens, it does...

I'm now waiting on AF, hoping I'm not pregnant since we had a slip up..Logan was born 1/17.. If I am pg, it will make baby #6 for us and I will have 4 under 4 when he/she is born..

Just pray for me.. LOL

When the next baby comes it comes. I hate being pregnant but can never wait to be pg again. That makes no sense to me. I can't believe that so many mamas have returned fertility! That kind of freaks me out- but I learned my lesson when I got pregnant with DS1- bfing is by no means birth control.

DH really wants to have another right away though...

No, I'm not ready yet and not sure if I l even want to do it all again. DH is ready now, though!

Ironically, even though I'm breastfeeding exclusively, AF has come. So strange, as baby is not sleeping through the night and the earliest my fertility has returned in the past has been 7 months.
