Ahhhhh! I have baby fever! Talk me down!

We have decided we don't need another baby, but tonight I am getting all sad about not having anymore.

Can any of you talk me out of it?

  • Oh you know what makes me want to quit having babies! Is thinking about how badly I tore with my last! He tore my lady parts up and down. THEN I had the stitches come loose, so the re stitched me 2 weeks later, after numerous snags. THEN they weren't dissolving so they had to go in and cut them out, and she slipped and poked the most sensitive area on my body and replied with an "oops" THEN it didn't heal right so they had to put silver nitrate on my lady parts to get rid of the skin that was left sticking out. Which by the way hurt to wipe.. FOR SIX WEEKS! THEN they had to do it again after another month of it STILL hurting. **gasp gasp gasp**

    There.. did THAT do it for you? haha

  • No can do ... I felt that way when our 2 sons were 7 & 8. My husband declared me insane, since he was a teacher (low salary) and I had been only free to have an out-of-the-house job for a year or two.

    I believe in reincarnation, and that we tend to alternate genders, so I wasn't likely to be a woman next time. I told him that I would be really pissed if I had to wait 'til my 2nd lifetime for the joy of giving birth and caring for another child.

    A year later our daughter was born. She has been the apple of my husband's eye, a treasure for both of us, a glorious gift for both of her brothers ... now finishing college in Chicago, she is a blessing to her friends & roommates (sometimes she says she WISHES she had emotional problems so that she didn't always find herself being the "therapist" among her large group).

    I believe in mother's intuition - I heard this dear little girl calling me. And I listened.

    Sorry !

  • I'm a week or so off my due date and I can barely move - I'm actually a whale I just sort of shuffle!

    Did that help at all?

  • Think of sleepless nights...many of them.Think of feeding every 2 hours, for months. Ok, I have no idea if that will do anything, but that's what I'm saying to make myself not have another one for at least a couple of years, lol!
