DH & I have been thinking more about...............

Posted by   + Show Post

.......baby #2 lately. He has gotten more serious about it and is actually suprising himself at how serious he is getting. Well, we made love the other night and yesterday morning he confessed to me...."I was thinking about making a baby last night while we were together." He didn't mean he would knock me up without me agreeing to it, but it sent a jolt through me when he said that. TMI but the way we were doing it (with or without a condom) wouldn't have gotten me pregnant if you get my drift, lol. Anyways, so the first step, I told him was to talk to our Park Manager because each home can only have 4 people max due to the water supply or something. Technically it is me, my dad, my DH and our DD. My dad doesn't live here anymore, but owns the house (it is a double wide in a VERY nice trailer park).

So realistically it is just me, DD and DH so a second child would make it 4 people living here. If that is the case, then we wouldn't have to move out. We are awaiting a call-back from the manager. If she says yes, it would be okay then we could move ahead and take more steps to be prepared for making another child. Second thing if she says yes would be for me to get a check-up to see if I'm healthy to have another. I am only concerned because I had Gallbladder Surgery a little over 2 months ago. I should be fine, but I want to make sure.

That's all I have thought of so far. I guess having one child makes it hard to make another (or it might just be me) because you know what to expect....lack of sleep, expenses, routines disrupted...it is truly life changing. DH says all the 'hardships' of having another child don't out-weigh the joys of having a baby. That touched me! I feel he is more ready than I am!

Just a suggestion: instead of really stressing out about ttc, just don't try not too. That's what my doctor told me and just to take prenatals from now on. The stress level dropped by 100 in our home


Quoting Crissy2424:

Well, I got news that we wouldn't be kicked out so we could have another child and still live here. The only thing is, this place would feel smaller with another child tacked on. So we could get by space wise for a couple years, but then we would need to start looking for another place.


DH says that after this semester he could get an entry-level job and make good money. His semester is up in December, he gets a better job anyway with his old club job in January....so we could start TTC by Jan or Feb latest if all works out. Or we could wait a year.


I just don't know! It seems like there is no ideal time. It's not like I want to wait 2 or 3 years :( I don't want my second baby to be 6 years younger than DD :(

Doesn't anyone realize how much money kids cost? How much more of a change there will be? How we can't afford to move and if we decide we need to we would have no where to go? This is all the crap going on in my mind just because I want a second child....want....not need :( Ugg sorry

We live in a double wide, 4 bedroom and yes it's tight but do able...we have the twins in one room and our older DD in her own. The 4th smaller bedroom we use for a playroom.

Wanna feel cramped in a mobile home, my neighbor had 12 people (6 under 8) living in a 3 br 1 1/2 bath mobile single wide!!!!
