I want to have another baby like NOW!

DD is four she will be five in July and lately all i can think about is having another baby. I talked to DH and he said that he wants to wait a while because he would like to be able to afford to be in a bigger place (we live in a two bedroom he wants to be in a three) before we have another one and while i understand his reasoning makes sense i just can't stop thinking about it. Did any of you go through something like this? What did you do to get your mind OFF having another one?

  • How about figuring out a way of saving money or increasing your income so that you can afford one sooner? Anytime that you find yourself thinking about it, find something physically strenuous to do. Make a list of what you need to do to be in the best physical shape to get pregnant. Find a new hobby that will keep you interested. It will be hard, but you can do it if you set your mind to it.

  • I held off. I didn't stop thinking about it. It was there in the back of my mind. Now, after a year, that I am FINALLY in the right place (new place, both of us got promotions, etc) we went for it. Just try to be patient.. trust me I know it is eaiser said than done, but do your best in the meantime, it will happen!

  • I just held off. It's smart for your husband to want to wait. My children are 5.5 years apart and I tell you, it's wonderful!!! I love it. My kids love it too

  • Haha! I know when I see other peoples little cute babies looking around as if they are just absorbing everything and they are soooo cute (I like them best at about 2-4 and I don't dare just hold them b/c then I will get like you are now but....when I can borrow my nephews or a friends kid, I make sure it's an overnight visit so that I can remember what lack of sleep is like and I KNOW i'm not ready for that again. LOL.
