That Unexpected "Itch" (no not that kind)

So I don't know if it is part of my post partum depression that comes in waves... but for a long time I've missed being pregnant. I loved the feeling of it, the bump, the glow, the amazing fact that you are holding a growing little person inside you... I know I know I'm absolutely crazy but its something I just miss. :| Sometimes I think about how it would work and sometimes it seems doable and other times I say no way. Has anyone else ever felt like this?? I'm on depo-provera so it would take me forever to become pregnant again, maybe. simple frown

I had preeclampsia, and so being pregnant again would be really scary for me!

Girl, I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old and I already have the itch again. I know the feeling. Being prego is a wonderful thing (aside from heartburn and swollen feet ;) )

Yes, I know how you feel. Three children later and the itch is GONE. Lol All I can say is, take your time. It's okay to have a few years space between children, or to have a small space. There's nothing wrong with waiting until you're fairly certain it's the right time to try again.

My third is 10 months old and sometimes I start thinking about having a 4th. When that happens I turn on "Call the Midwife" on Netflix and watch the 1st episode and the birth where the woman is screaming bloody murder. That pretty much makes me content with 3 kids again. Lol!!

Lol I can understand that x) but I loved my labor and delivery journey . Sure it hurt (definitely!) but I'd do it over again . I had back labor that really delayed dilation for me . I was them frozen at 8cm for maybe over two hours and since I was at The Birth Center in Bryn Mawr PA for over 26 hours I had to be transferred to DCMH for an epidural . After the epidural I slept for a long time and then when I woke up I was ready to push and I had him two hours later . It took a lot of hard pushes to have him rotate because he was head down bit he was facing "sunny side up " instead of facing the ground . I felt him finally turn right near my pelvic bone . It was like a weird click and I just said , "Whoa he is facing the right way now." Really calm and one of the midwives who came with me from tbc said "wow you're right !" Then it was really easy and took just another 30 minutes from there (:

I was on depo. The first period I was pregnant.

Yeah I do need to wait . I think it's the fact that even at birth my son was never much of an infant . He was extremely active and strong from the get go and he just grew so quick... walking at nine months and already drinking from a straw and he'll be a year on March 11. He already asks ,"what's that ?" and says mommy, dada,mommom, yumm , muum for more, papop , he literally just said thank you, rubs his belly if you ask him where it is, feed himself , and just so much more .
