DD has just turned 1 and it's got me thinking back to the day she was born...makes me want to do it all again and infact it excites me..! Am I mad..??? DH so wants another baby so no issues there and I am so broody but the only things putting me off are : Wanting to loose last of baby weight and also worry about coping with another baby etc...

Am I mad for desperatly wanting another baby..? I can't help thinking back a year ago with fondness....Whats happening..!!!!

but to think back to the birth with fondness...as well..?? I know it wasn't a bad birth by some mn's standards but I remember it hurt like hell..Why would I want to do that all again.?!

Go for it girl! I'd love to be in your position. I have two dds and would love to have another baby - dh says NO!

I got pg when ds1 was only 8 months (we were ttc) and it has been great but I think I will wait a while for the next one - 3 under 3 might be a bit much! If you both want it - go for it!

I said I would never do it again after the birth of dd1 but I did. The pleasure you get from bringing up your children overides the pain of labour.

I suppose you are right sparkler1. I smelt the shampoo the other day that I used when I showered after dd was born...it just gave me good feelings and made me feel like I was back on the delivery suite and ward.
Does you dh never want any more s1..? DH & I would love about 5 but we mc a few times before we had dd so we know things are not always on our side iykwim. I think I just worry about bringing them up and not being able to cope and not to mention the mess caused !!

schneebly, how did you cope with 2 so young.? What makes you want to wait for a 3rd..? Choice or due to exhaustion..!!???

no way are you mad , if that’s what u wont then you should go for it, there is a 3 and a half year gap between mine and I so wish that they had been closer. My youngest is just about to turn 1 and I would love another one, its only natural to wont more children.

ahh <shhhh breathes a sigh of relief> sounds like I am in good company!!!

So maybe the plans for baby 2 will start..<Mr shhhh's eyes light up..!.>
