(DD is 12.5 weeks now) I've thought about it on more than one occasion. Every day I am thankful for how lucky I was to have a great first pregnancy. And despite the unnecessary, unplanned C/S, I'm thinking about it sooner than later...
I cried a little putting away my maternity clothes. I feel a little sad thinking that I wont be pregnant again for an indeterminate amount of time. It took us long to conceive DD, so maybe it's partially paranoia that we need to start trying again now if we want another in the next 5 years...
If it weren't for our desire to BLW, and the need to continue to heal from my unnecessary, unwanted C/S, I'd be dreaming about a late 2011 babe.
Is anyone else in my boat yet? I know I went a little early, with some fellow 7/18 ladies... and some of you are just 6 weeks PP or less, so I can understand if I'm out on this island alone for now...
Hope you're all well!
I am excited for another baby though. We actually just picked an adoption agency to adopt our next!!! We will start the whole process of applying and home study and such around Annabelle's 1st birthday.

I had a fantastic pregnancy... no symptoms. I really like having my body back, well mostly.
I have however, been seeing pictures of my DS at birth a ton on my screen saver and there are a ton of babies being born in our friend circle which has choked me up emotionally lately. Such a fabulous time.
Knowing this, I think I was a lot calmer about getting pregnant again after DS' birth, because thinking about getting pregnant=no more nursing. But I *am* already thinking about what it would be like to be pregnant again! Like.... "I know those are just gas bubbles, but what if they were little baby flutters!!!" We've talked about having 3 kids, but then I think... if we (only) have 3, then the next pregnancy will be my last.... and that makes me kind of sad! So, we'll see after the next one
Lucky for me, my good friend is 12 weeks pregnant, so I will have her pregnancy to obsess over for the next 30ish weeks!

The thought of actually having a 2nd baby to take care of at the same time though - I don't know how people do it! We're still struggling to get breastfeeding down with fewer pump-and-bottle sessions. For now that means nursing literally every hour during the day and only pumping/bottling at night so I can get some sleep.
But yes, the daydream is still there though. I had an unplanned CS too (breech) so we have to wait at least a year to TTC. I'm just going to cross my fingers that #2 won't be another preemie!
Mama to a little man who arrived early on 7/18/10! DS2 due in October 2013.
Now I get so sad watching it all fall out and have to go back to washing my hair everyday or it's soo oily. =( I wish I could have that great pregnancy hair and skin all the time without actually being pregnant all the time!
But I just started excersizing again and am enjoying having my body back like a previous poster said.
No idea when (if?) the next pregnancy will be, but not right away. I'm feeling outnumbered as it is now!
So I guess you can tell that I don't really miss being pregnant!

Dh on the other hand, really misses the belly. Asked me the other day when we can have another baby.
But another baby, eh...not so much. The baby stage is hard for me. I recently celebrated DD's 3 month birthday with the thought of "Yay, 1/4 of the year down!"
(Though, I think I am just still shell-shocked from DS, DD has been nothing but easy. I read on the board once, "it is the easy 2nd baby that tricks you into having a third.")
I'm ready to do it again and yes, I do miss being pregnant. I always do.
