So for the last couple days, I can't stop thinking about a baby.  What is wrong with me?  I can barely handle the one I have.  I keep thinking "Oh my god, he's gonna be 2 in 4 months!"  Then I think about big boy beds and preschool, you know the whole sha-bang.  Then I think of all the stress, SIDS, introducing foods, LABOR, but its not curbing my appetite so to speak.  What the h*ll?  How does everyone else feel about this?  Are other moms going through this, is it a phase???

Yes, you are crazy. But you can blame your son for it - he's the one responsible for making you a mother, and motherhood is addicting!

It might be a phase, it might not. It all depends on you. I went back and forth the entire time I was trying to conceive my daughter, who is my second child. I even went back and forth during the pregnancy. But ultimately, I did and do want only problem is that since I didn't give my son a brother, I still want to, AND I want to give my daughter a sister. ;) So I want 2 more babies - preferably at the same time, to kill two birds with one stone.

It's tough to have 2 little kids around at the same time - I got pregnant with DD when DS was about a year and a half old, and had her two months after he turned 2 years old. He's generally pretty good with her, and she adores him. Their only real problem is when he wants to play and she's overstimulated...then they're way insanely noisy. He's never been green-eyed monster jealous, but has had his moments where he wants mamom and daddy all to himself. I think he'll adjust fine as she grows older and asserts herself - I really think she's going to have everyone in this house in check. When they're both whiny or fussy or tired is when they get to me, and I want to pull my hair out and scream...but the both of them as they are make everything worthwhile. When they're asleep, anyway... ;)
