  • Me!!! Ha I love my son but I always thought I would have another one when he was 1 or so now he is 7 months old I'm so not having another one right now. I was thinking maybe when he is 2 start trying but I have a feeling when he is two i'll push it back to 3 :) Funny thing

  • I think absolutely all of us have felt like that at some point after our first baby. I have 2 now, and want more, but yeah, I felt that way, too. It is overwhelming at times! But also, if you never want more, that's fine, too.

  • Well I originally wanted 4 kids, my hub said ABSOLUTELY NO MORE THAN TWO, so I was hopping I could get him to comprimise with 3 kids lol. Well after I had my son, I was in NO hurry to be pregnant again lol, and he had some pretty major medical issues. So we waited till he was 5 before we got preggers with our second one, mind you, at that time I still wanted 3 lol. But during my pregnancy with her, I realized that pregnancy just did not agree with me and during labor I screamed that I was NEVER doing this shit again lol, and I meant it because 6 months later my hubby got fixed, a year after that I got a hysterectomy! lol And trust me, I have NO regrets lol

  • totally, me! befrore i had my daughter , who is almost 14months old, i always said i wanted 2 kids...but now im not so sure about having another kid now. kids are costly and i don't think i want to go through teething again. if i have a 2nd child i might have to breastfeed again, bc with my daughter she couldn't digest formula or take breastmilk from a bottle or sippy cup. maybe 5yrs from now i might change my mind, but for now one child is plenty for me.

  • It's not me but my SO! When I met him, he said he wanted 11 or 12 kids. Now we have 3 boys and he said we are done. DONE. He won't even discuss maybe trying for a girl! Makes me kind of sad.

  • but some days i confuse myself and want another baby now ! lol

    Answer by happymom1988 at 1:37 PM on Nov. 18, 2009

  • My husband! I have good days and bad :) But I knew what I was getting into. I baby sat a lot and worked at a day care. Going form part time to full time care was a jump but it wasn't too bad for me. But hubby isn't used to it and even after 2 years is still on the fence if he wants more. "they are work!" he says. ... as if he does half the work of taking care of our daughter!
