I want to be pregnant

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
DH and I have one child, a 5 1/2 year old son. We are done at one. I am a full time premed student in the second semester of my junior year.

Financially, we cannot have another child. Our son attends an amazing private school (on a partial scholarship) and our budget cannot stretch anymore and still accommodate that.

I will NOT send him to the public school. We have our activities we enjoy but I still have this longing for another of my own.

Logically, I KNOW we cannot have another but baby fever is hitting me HARD. :-(

My sister and user 13 years apart. I have to say I couldn't stand it when I was younger and we weren't really close. Now we are really good friends and she comes to me for things she doesn't neccesarily want to go to mom with.

I guess but I don't want my kids 12-15 years apart. Why must I be logical and rational? LOL




Quoting paknari:

What about in a couple years? I know that's not super helpful but doctors make good money eventually.

There is 6 yrs between me and one brother and 21 yrs between me and my baby brother. My son is 8 months younger than my brother. But I love my brother. And there is no sibling rivalry with this age gap.

Because of financial reasons and because, by the time we can have another our son will be 15-16 and I just don't want my kids that far apart.

We cannot afford to send a second child to the school my son attends and we will not pull him out. Even 6 years from now it won't be feasible. I also have nobody to care for a baby while I'm in class (no online is not an option). I'm just lamenting what will never be. :-/
Thank you for your words though.

I know that feeling... I have one 7 year old DS, and I don't think I could handle another child, but I miss being pregnant.

I'm sorry to hear this but please remember if you want to be a mommy for the second time you have the power to make it happen it doesnt need to be just a dream. sometimes it takes giving up some things:)
