Adam&Eve2:I think everyone with a baby goes through this to an extent. Trust me..it will pass. But a good starting point would be to sit down with your SO and talk about when you each would want another baby. Having a solid plan/idea about when you can start trying for another will help you too. GL!
now... I have wanted to be pregnant again ever since I was in the delivery room.... H and I have decided that this past month we were going to start trying for #2...
It sounds like this is all about YOU, what you want - not necessarily what might be best for your family.
I'm sorry your baby boy isn't enough for you right now.
I realize this is snarky - maybe I read your OP with the wrong tone.
I think some of you got this wrong. My little boy is my life. My everything. He is what makes me so happy and NOTHING will change that. I just want another little one that's all. Oh and if I have a little boy then it was ment to be and I will be thrilled to have another little boy. Little boys smile and are so funny to watch. What I mean is I would like a little girl so I could experience bows and dresses and stuff. Not that I don't want a little boy. I don't think I am being all about me. I want my son to have a sibling close to age.
am I not allowed to want another LO in our house?? My little boy is more than I ever wanted and I am absolutly proud and happy that I had a little boy and that I am his mommy. I just would like a little girl next time I am pregnant so I have the best of both of best worlds. I think you did read my post wrong and took it the wrong way. Even if I had another little boy. I am okay with that. They are wonderful. What I am saying to sum this all up is I just miss being pregnant and I want another baby regardless if it is a girl or boy. Hope this clears it up.
Faith 21:No I just don't want people thinking I don't love my son and that he is not good enough bcnbsp;that's not the case and let them know that they read my post in the wrong way. That is all.
I think having children close in age because you want to be pregnant again is a bad idea. While there are many benefits of kids close in age, it's not a decision you should make for that reason. I think a lot of women with babies your age miss being pregnant--after all that was your identity for nearly a year of your life and now that pregnancy is over/brand new baby is not so brand new you miss that excitement. Since this is something that you clearly didn't talk about prior to having kids, I would give it a few months and see if your feelings change before addressing this issue with your DH.
