What the hell is wrong with me??

I just had a baby in December. So he is three months old now and I am already feeling like I want to get pregnant again!! I don't know why I am feeling this way. My son already takes up so much of my time and energy I don't know how I would handle having him and being pregnant and then a one year old and a newborn. I know my husband would never go for having a baby this soon so he doesn't even know about my feeling this way. What is going on with me?

  • I agree it is probably hormones. Even if you are not breastfeeding your body is still not back to normal after being pregnant and going through labor. Also alicia is right your three month old is so cute now it is only natural to want another! I would say give it time, especially since your husband wouldn't be ready. But there have been many parents who have had kids only a year apart and did great.

  • I havent heard of that . But if you are nursing, your hormones are going nuts right now and that may explain it

  • For some reason I'm always wanting to get pregant again too.. I have THREE kids and a step daughter!! I'm overloaded! But I still can't stop thinking about getting pregnant. But as soon as I start thinking I'm pregnant I cry and get scared because we don't have the money or space for another baby.. plus my youngest is only 1 1/2.. I don't know.. ever since I was of age to have children.. I've had baby fever!! lol..

  • I felt the same way in the beginning. I think I just enjoyed the whole process so much that I just wanted to do it again. Kind of like riding a really fun roller coaster lol. I know I couldn't handle 2 little ones though, and I'm back to wanting to wait a few more years now.
