We've been TTC number 2 forever, so seeing ladies with big bumps in RL is getting a bit , but I love coming here to coo over the more safely-distant snuggly new ones. And imagining I can smell that yummy smell.
disenchanted - i keep telling myself babies are teeny they fit in really small spaces lol. I find it helps if you ignore the fact they get bigger. Seriously though we proba do have the room and just about the money (as long as it doesnt mind wearing hand me downs!) but I really really want to lose wieght - I need to lose about 2 stone before i will consider it.
although I really really want to breastfeed. I didnt with my first two and with my third I did half and half ( I was really nervous) I LOVED it and had no problems at all so I keep thinkg it would be so nice to totally breastfeed next time. probably the stupidest reason ever to have a baby lol
snap about the car though I have a giant red pushchair instead
just out of interest, all you who have three and not-so-secretly want a fourth, was it the same when you had two and wanted the third? I say that because I and Mr Licious definitely want two, but I wonder whether we will be that disciplined when #2's not a baby any more.
Lexi- We said no more than 2... had DS and then DD1 was a surprise 'honeymoon' baby, they were only 15.5mths apart, was tough but well worth it. Then i was going to be a surrogate but things kinda went wrong and i was all in the mindset for a pregnancy, and we'd kinda already decided we'd like a 3rd somewhere down the line... so we started TTc for DC3, and 3mths later fell PG- was a hellish PG, and she was born prem but was worth it in the end.
Now i'm wanting to try surrogacy again and i know when i'm 'done' i'll most likely feel broody again, even though i dont actually want any more now.... But DH REALLY REALLY doesn't want another and has got an app for the snip... suppose there's always sprem donors if i'm that desperate
im 31 weeks with ds1 and dp says im never aloud another because ive had such a bad time being pregnant (all nasty parts of pregnancy, sickness ect) but im dead set on having another 2 i despise being pregnant but am just pretending it will be lovely next time around
have dc4 forget about being senisble about money ect
Cherry- when PG with DS (DC1) i had hyperemesis and was sick up until labour with him... with DD1 was plain sailing all the way through... with DD2 had hyperemesis till about 22weeks, had SPD from around wk 9 to wk 26 then had a premmy born at 32weeks (with a show a week before and waters breaking 5 days before she arrived)- real hellish time but was defo worth it, even with the other 2 DC's when i was PG- i'd do it all again in a flash!!
cherry while pregnant with ds I had hyperemesis throughout, killer heartburn, spd, insomnia and restless legs. Ended up in hospital because I was dehydrated from all the vomiting etc. We're ttc #2 now. As people say, just because you have it in one pregnancy oesn't mean you'll have it in later ones. <<crosses fingers and hopes>>
