  • I felt the same way and didn't get "fixed"... so here I am with number 4 due in 2 weeks. LOL.

    Find ways to stay engaged with your LOs and something to do with your spare time for yourself to keep the baby fever away.

    It isn't easy, but with time this too shall pass.

  • Well basically I feel if you can handle then go ahead and have the baby only you know what you can handle but I was the same way both my oldest are months apart my last son is the one I waited on as a matter a fact I am thinking about a fourth.

  • Well Im always busy with my 2 kids. Ones 8 an the other is 2. But I cant have anymore now. Wish I could thou. But nothing can change that. But I am a great mom to my kids an that will never change. If Im meant to have another baby then so be it. If not, then I only have about 15 to 20 more years til my kids have babies. Then I can have my grandkids.

  • That's how I feel. I got "fixed" when my last baby was born and she is now 2 and I feel like I wish I hadn't done the permanent fix, but that's how it goes. We really weren't (and aren't) in a position to have more kids, so I will wait (impatiently) for grandchildren now. :D

  • "baby fever" happens everytime the youngest gets a little independent.
