I had DD3 a week ago and swore she was my last, I had a horrendous pregnancy (thought I would get kicked off here for moaning), once the sickness went the SPD kicked in and being hardly able to walk with a 3 and 2yo took it's toll on me and I was utterly miserable.
Now DD3 is here DP and I have talked about a fourth I think he would be up for it, there are the usual concerns mostly financial but how to divide our time between 4 little people all wanting our attention. We only have a 3 bed house and would need a new car nevermind thinking of things like 4 pairs of shcool shoes. Is it the cute newborn phase and my hormones?
Yes, hormones. DH was on the way to the hospital with dd1 to see me and the DTs, and when he arrived, he cradled his newborn twins and told me he'd already names our 4th girl on the way in. I beamed at him (hormonally) and agreed.
I was in hospital after having no 3 and dh asked me if I wanted anymore. I knew that he definitely didn't want anymore but in my hormonal fug i said oh yes, of course, that would be lovely. He nearly fainted. ds3 is 21 months now and I always knew he'd be my last. Still look with longing at pg tummies but its not to be for me so I've come to terms with it - sort of!
SK I feel the same My DD is 5 months old and I am gagging to start trying for another one. We already have a DS (2.10) and the agreement was that if DD had been a boy we would deffo have had another. But I want one anyway. I look at teeny tiny babies AND I WANT ONE!! (stamps feet!)
SK- when DS2 was born last july..(he was DC) I said to my midwife i dont feel complete yet.. I still want another... and this feeling still hasnt left me. I dont think dh feels the same in anyway shape or form. but he was like that with DDS and we gave nature 6months.. it took 4 weeks. I think if I am going to have another I will have to fall with in weeks of him getting back from Afghanistan, as we have said he is having the snip when he gets back, and i will have to deal with the wanting. I do keep wavering but I am very jealous of pg tummies and new borns, but not sure whether it is because ds2.. is my last and i want it all again just to have a baby.. as sometimes i do find it hard to deal with the three I have.. but saying that having soent the last 6 months on my own with them!!!! not sure if i could do 6 months on my own with 4!!
Sorry not much help i know.. my head is all over the place..But i do know if it happens then i will be happy.. if it doesnt.. time will tell..
I knew i wanted another baby as soon as dc4 was born, i told dh on the post-natal ward that i wanted another one, his reply was 'we havent got this one home yet'
dc5 is nearly 3 mths old, and for the moment the broody feeling has gone, may come back in a few months who knows cant say i had an enjoyable pregnancy with dc5, i broke my ankle when i was 30weeks pg and was stuck in the house for 6 weeks, which didnt help,
sweetkitty, I have 3 dd's, youngest being 11 weeks old and I think about another every single day! Two days ago I thought we should probably stop as I was worried about how I would divide my time, yesterday I thought we really should have another , don't know how this one will end ...
