Not really TTC but I want another baby.

this is slightly embarrassing. My son is 8 weeks old and I am finding myself wanting another baby already. I am not TTC. I don't even have a boyfriend (i'm a single mom). It's really frustrating because I can't control this urge I have! I am actually getting an IUD (mirena) put in soon. So logically I don't want another baby. But emotionally I DO!

  • I think after 8 weeks, you're probably still riding that huge wave of hormones that fluxes after you deliver. It took me a couple months to really level out. Since you recognize that your emotions aren't reflecting how you really feel, I would bet you're still working out all that extra hormones. I think you'll get yourself to a place where it will be better to have one and you'll be glad you waited. :)

  • I think it is completely normal to feel this way, and I think it is good that you recognize it's not really a practical option at the moment. I was shocked at how strongly I wanted another baby when my twins were infants - I was a sleep-deprived mess, and it just made no sense at all. In time it did lessen. I think the feeling was brought on by hormones changes, and as those began to regulate I didn't feel so nuts.
