We have a 5 month old baby girl and for some reason I want another baby already! I baby our daughter and our dog like crazy. My dh says we need to wait and I understand why but I can't help but feel sort of empty. Hubby says if I want another baby to get a kitten or something. What in the world is wrong with me? Shouldn't I be happy and satisfied to have my daughter and only her right now?

Definitely wait to have another baby! I love that my kids are close in age, but I feel like my son didn't get to be the baby long enough before I had my daughter.

Lol, you are crazy!! No, just kidding. If you want one, you want one! Of course not much you can do about it though if your dh wants to wait.

My son is 7 months old now and a few months ago I wanted another one. I think it was because he was growing so fast it just broke my heart to know all these little things go by and you can't get them back. Like the first time he smiled or laughed or said dada. Now though I just want to enjoy this time with him before I have another. In the back of my mind I know if I were pregnant right now I'd be too tired to play with my son all day like I do now, and it would be physically uncomfortable to pick him up or hold him or feed him the way I do now.

Plenty of women get pregnant a few months after they've just had one, there's nothing wrong with that... I personally would never but that's just me :O)

I didn't feel thay way with my son-he was my first and only so far-but I can see why you would. It's not that you don't feel content with her, you just feel like you need more babies. I think your hubby has the right idea about you getting a kitten. I hope you do wait to have another baby; at least a year.

Ok so you agree to wait on baby #2 and just get a cat instead? Ok I'll give that a go, thanks :)
