Ok, so 10 weeks ago, I had my son. Now I really want another baby. I thought I was pregnant again about a month ago, and I started getting really excited. Now that’s all I can think about is having another little baby. Me and my boyfriend plan on waiting two years until our next one, but I don’t think that I can wait that long. Is there something wrong with me that makes me want to have another baby so soon?
It can be a normal post partum reaction, I had "withdrawals" after I had my first, I even had the phantom kicks where I felt something kicking me and moving and yet I was looking at my daughter at the same time knowing that there was not another one in there, I say give it some more time for your hormones to cool back down, get used to and adjusted to having the one and take it slow, if you are ready to commit to having a bigger family then look into committing to marriage before you add to the one you already have…I would definitely wait a while and make sure that you are up to speed with all the changes of having one because going from one to two was like hitting a brick wall for me, it really is a HUGE difference, I am freaking out now about having one more than I have arms now…my daughter was 2 1/2 when my son was born and she was at the age where she could help me by handing me a diaper or throwing something away but I have had friends who have kids really close together and it can be a lot harder on you to have 2 that are fully dependent on you….take your time and enjoy your son and make sure your relationship is strong and unmoved by the changes of having one before you bring another one along…Love Meg
I got pregnant on the pill – and my children will be 12 1/2 months apart in age. I really wish i had that 2 year gap – stick to it, it’ll be worth it. My daughter is too young to help out at all and demands attention all of the time. Its going to be very hard.
