Do you want another baby?

My daughter was born on July 20th and I am already getting the urge to have another one! She was my first. Is this a phase? How soon did you have your next child?

  • Funny you ask that question.......I felt the same way after my first born. I became pregnant with my next baby when my first was about 9mo. old. I now have 3 boys and am pregnant with baby #4.

  • My daughter was born in April and DH and I have been actively trying to get preggo for 2 months now. It's difficult because I BF but we're hoping it'll happen before Christmas. I think there are more pros to having the kids closer in age than there are to spacing them farther apart. :)

  • My son was born july 10th and i think the first time i had that feeling was at my 6 week checkup at the obgyn, and the office was filled with a bunch of preggos... and then i saw a couple looking at their ultrasound picstures, and once i was in an exam room, i heard a mom listening to her baby's heartbeat... and i missed it! I still definitely want to have another, but there is no way we could right now. we've decided 2 will be our limit, unless god has other plans... and we're going to wait until our son is out of diapers... and i want my pre-baby body back (just to mess it all up again, lol)

  • Thank you guys for your answers! Now I do not feel crazy lol. I had a dream about being pregnant again and I told my husband about it and he said "Ohhh that wouldn't be so bad." Not the answer I expected. I loved being pregnant and I love babies. The only problem is, my mother in law watches my daughter. I think 2 babies would be too much for her. I wish I could be a stay at home mom, but financially I cannot right now. Maybe I will wait a little bit...

  • My husband is usually the first to mention another one! I am pregnant with number 4 and our oldest is 3 years! Our kids are 15 months, 18 months, and soon to be 14 months apart. We never expected to have them SO close together, but it's been great!!

  • We want another one, too! Our DD is 16 months old, and my DH said that he wanted another baby when Catie was only 2 weeks old! We've been trying for several months, but no luck so far!

  • I didn't then, I SURE do now!!! DD will be 2 in Nov... DH has been deployed since she was 8 mos old (that's 15 mos) so there wasn't a chioce at that time. Now I want one more than EVER!!! DH wants to wait however... til we decide what we are going to do and THEN have our second and last kid!!!

  • My daughter is 5 now and I am having dreams all the time about having another baby. Unfortunately, my husband doesn't want anymore children and it probably won't happen for other various reasons. But it has definitely been on my mind ALOT lately!
