debating on having another baby - update !!!

Hello everyone,

I'm 27 married with a 2 year old and I'm debating on having another baby. My son is very spoiled and still sleeps with me by choice.  Whether I'm sleeping in his room or he is sleeping in mine. He is stuck to me like glue. Anyone who has a toddler knows kids constantly kick you in the middle of the night. I'm concerned he would hurt me or the baby once I conceive. Maybe I'm overrating a little but lately he's been very active at night and I think he will cause me to have a miscarriage in the future. S/N I miss him so much and can't sleep when he's over grandma's house or in his room. Is it too soon to have another baby???

Please keep all rude comments to yourself!!!! I never understood why people leave rude comments and post anonymous. Caution: I will reply in the same manner

 Your baby is pretty well protected in there. It will have to be a hell of a kick to hurt a baby. I got kicked a few times by my 1 yr old while I was pregnant with #2. #2 came out just fine and healthy.

so, from what I'm reading it sounds like you're single?? if not, seems odd that you would miss him if he's in his room...?

I question this because I cannot fathom anyone CHOOSING to be a single parent....what a huge disservice to the child...so, I guess I would say focus on him and be done if you're alone....just my opinion...

I'm not sure how you'd even get pregnant if youre sleeping in his room lol. First off, I'm not a fan of cosleeping, but to answer your question, I don't think you're ready for another baby. But the womb is designed to protect a baby.

 I tired to get him to sleep in his room but every morning I would wake up and he would be sleeping right next to me so I kinda gave up.... There are other rooms in my house lol

I'd work on getting the toddler not so attached first.  Sounds like he's super attached and you'll have more problems if you add another baby right now because you'd be taking the attention that 1st child is used to having.  

Plus I assume you'd want to co-sleep with the 2nd as well and it would be very dangerous to the baby to be in the bed with a toddler.  So get the toddler sleeping in  his own room first.
