We've been talking about another one over here, but we're not ready just yet. Still, it's a popular topic of conversation, and something I think about a lot!

90% of me does. But the logical 10% of me is glad my fertility (probably) hasn't returned! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Dh said to me last night, after looking lovingly at our dd... I would like to have a boy... and name him Bear...LOL<br><br>
I don't think we are anywhere near ready yet but it's nice to know that he enjoys having babies with me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm so scared of when AF will return, I still can't bring myself around to even risk it if you KWIM?

So glad I'm not the only one! Being a mom is such a high for me - give me more of this!<br><br>
It's probably not in the cards for me, due to my age and that my dp really wants to stop with one, but I'm not getting rid of my maternity clothes just in case.<br><br>

I do... not sure about right now but I do want one more. I don't think it will happen but DH still hasn't even made a consult appt with the "snip snip" Dr so I'm halfway crossing my fingers that we get an "oops" here eventually... of course that would actually mean we'd have to BD a lot more than we are now...

I wanted to get pregnant again right away. It was partly due to the fact that I was mourning the last month of my firsy prenancy (dd came early and not through the homebirth that I had planned). Still, I have wanted to get pregnant ever since, ideally after dd was 12mth. She is now 15mth and we are trying, no luck yet. I want to have at least 2 more, although I am torn about spacing.

I can completely relate- after having my first baby, I was already thinking about #2 just weeks after our birth. (Looking at sibling books, etc...) I think it was because I loved being pregnant so much and I found birth to be the most empowering and magical experience of my life. AF didn't return for me until DS was 17 months old and we were pregnant with DD just a few months later...without trying, but secretly hoping<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I haven't been "craving" another baby as much this time around, but both DH and I hope that we will one day have a third. But not for some time...I'm not sure I could manage 3 kids under 3 1/2 yrs old.

I wanted #3 very shortly after #2 was out. But we are definitely not having anymore. I was on the fence until I watched An Inconvenient Truth...but now I know I won't have more kids.

Can you give me more information on this? I'm not familiar with it in terms of how it relates to having kids...(overpopulation?) I know that Gore focuses on global warming, etc...but never had a chance to see the movie. Thanks!

I was totally thinking about #2 shortly after dd was born. Like pp said, it was empowering and I have never been so proud of my body. I still can't believe I created something so perfect and I had an awesome pregnancy and easy labor. I'm sure that has something to do with it. I had an IUD put in about a month ago. We are wanting to wait until early '08 because we are moving in the fall. I didn't want to move pregnant. I was useless for the most part while pregnant... healthy but useless. Dh and I were giggling about getting pregnant again when we were first able to be intimate after dd was born. Ok, so I was mostly giggling and he was happy that I was able to be intimate again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yes, it's an overpopulation thing. Gore only touched on the issue in his film, but I learned enough to know that I don't want more kids.

But, it's not impossible of course. And if you are, I know you'll find a way to make it work. Both my pregnancies were unplanned, but we made it work.
