Oh I so know what youre going through! We have 2 little boys, but I have terrible baby fever right now! And the timing isnt perfect, we want things in life that we just cant accomplish if I keep having babies, so I know that I should wait until we are a little more further up the road than we are right now...but its tough because at the same time, I know that if we waited until we are 'ready' to have babies, most of us would be a long time having them! Hubby tells me the baby fever will pass, but i dunno...thats a tough one. Just think hard about what you want and what another baby will bring to your family, and how life will be I guess and hopefully you will come to the right decision...Im still at this point, wondering if its right or not....So, if you come across some good advice let me know!! :)

i have gotten that feeling quite a few was always becuase i was missing my husband...i feel that way right now....i dont know what to say cuz im in the same boat. maybe it will go away when he gets back next week. But i do miss my baby being that small....and i just want that feeling back.

if you are emotionally ready for another child and you know you wont end up denying your child with the necessities then you should go ahead and have another isnt can always make room....well thats just my opinion. you obviously have to talk to your husband and all that about it 2! GOOD LUCK!
