Haha, I really don't. But I think everyone was right when they said you forget all the pain of labor and the pregnancy pains after you have your adorable baby in your arms. I didn't believe them!

We had planned on Asia being our only baby, but I have definitely changed my mind about that! I want one more.. I can wait a couple years though

Happy mama to Asia born 07/15

I am so ready to have another. We even DTD today and Jackson will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. I am doubting that any amount of DTD will result in another baby as Jackson is an IVF baby, but one can wish right?

It took me a good year and half to get ready to try for #2. However just days after the birth of my daughter I was thinking about #3.

Yup, I wanted another as soon as this one was out! Of course my period doesn't come back for a year and I want my body to go back first, but whenever it happens is fine with me.

I don't really want another bby right now, but I miss being pregnant so much. I bet we will try after a year or so as long as I feel good and get back into shape.

could have sworn during labor that there was no way and those thoughts are still pretty vivid even if the pain isn't.

We agreed on only two - but randomly discussed 3 once... dh is supposed to get snipped now that she is here but I don't see him racing to the door or calling doctors to plan it.

We might could but we are supposed to be done.... I really don't know how I feel about it one way or the other. I think I'm done but don't want to be...

it took me 4+ years to want #2! now i'm totally hoping for a 3rd already (and i know dh is too because he keeps joking about it) -- probably not for at least another 3 years though... i'm terrified of the toddler + infant combo.

I will admit to thinking mournfully that I'll never be pregnant again, never have another newborn, or another homebirth...but then I am like THANK GOD.

I just don't think I can hang with another 9 months of misery. HG plus all the other stuff I had going on...it was really awful. I feel 1000% better now that I'm no longer pregnant.

I really started thinking about having another soon after Amelia was born. The pain was horrendous, and I am going to get some pain relief next time, and pregnancy was really hard this time, but we are goi9ng to plan it better. We'll have enough money next time (hopefully!) to hire someone to clean and help me with stuff while I am pregnant. I just could not do it this time and we faught like crazy bc of the stress.

Dh is ready for another one, too, and we have talked about it a lot. My period came back at 2 or 3 months last time, but I really believe we need to give our bodies a two year break. So, we'll have to wait.

I did research a lot on adoption yesterday, though. Hopefully that could be an option for us as well.

It is crazy to have baby fever when you have a newborn, eh?

You seemed so serene in labor!

I was 1000x louder -esp when pushing the baby out- and I still wouldn't describe the pain as horrendous. But I guess everyone is different. For me it was only really really bad for the last 10 or so minutes.

I miss being pregnant. If it wasn't for the weight I really need to lose I wouldn't care at all to be expecting again soon.

Yes, but probably not for the right reason....

I still want my VBAC, so bad. :

We've agreed to only have two kids though, and picturing myself with three is... weird. Dh is supposed to be getting the V, but he hasn't mentioned and seems to be in no big hurry, so, we'll see.

I know that's not a good reason to want/have another child...but the fact that it didn't work out for me this time just makes me want to leave that door open a little while longer. Maybe in a couple of years I'll get some serious baby fever again and I'll talk him into just one more...in the meantime, the possibility of that, as well as looking at my beautiful daughter, is what is keeping me sane.

I have no desire to be pregnant anytime soon. That said, I will not be upset or devastated if we find ourselves expecting again in the next few years. I know I will likely go through the next year with no problem preventing, but I usually get pregnant around 13 or 18 months postpartum. I really do need a few years without being pregnant. I've done this 7 times in the last 13 years.
