Even though you know it's not a good idea right now? I had/am in a pregnancy scare...and at first I was terrified of being pregnant...but now that I'm almost sure I'm not, I've gotten used to the idea and wish it had turned out differently. I've had baby fever almost since ds was born already...but not to the point where I'd actually consider it.
I want more kids...and we could afford them...but we have no more room in this house. We're piled on top of each other as it is. We never intended to have ONE kid here...and now we have TWO! We hope to move this year, but there are no guarantees of when precisely that will happen since we have to sell this house in order to buy another. So I can't just assume we'll be out by the time it's born.
I'm also finally on a halfway decent work schedule. I work from home, and it's HARD getting things done while spending any time with my kids...I had wanted to wait until dd was in school...or at least past the whole smearing diaper rash cream on the floor thing that toddlers tend to do. Plus, I'm working on several things to up my income even more than I hope will go well this year... and with pregnancy fatigue, how well would that work out?
Not to mention my son is still a baby himself, and he deserves his babyhood without having to share the attention any more than he already does.
But I'm already looking at tiny little clothes and picturing how I'll do the next nursery...
I know no time is the "right" time...and I think I'd like to lose weight before having any more so that maybe I have more energy the next time around... but I still secretly (to my family and friends anyway) wish I could have baby #3 right now.
