Please tell me others have felt the same & that it's not just me?!

I had my first baby 8 weeks ago; he was born 5 weeks early, it was healthy & happy, didn't have to have any extra support/visit SCBU etc. He's exclusively breastfed which has gone really well and is a v good sleeper (7/8 hours at night). He's still a bit behind as his corrected age is 3 weeks, so he isn't smiling/babbling yet, but he's a delight and I adore him.

BUT - and it's a big but - I am SO broody. I am desperate to be pregnant again, however I know it's unlikely due to me breastfeeding. Plus, I really do want some time to just enjoy my baby boy.

I think part of the problem is that he's so well behaved and pleasant! If he was a bit more demanding then I think I wouldn't even have time to think about another. Please reassure me that it's not just me that feels this way. Surely it has to be the hormones?!

It's got to be the hormones. I've got 13 week DS asleep on me at the moment, DD asleep upstairs and I cannot get the thought of a third out of my head! grin Although I wasn't so broody after DD, maybe your harder work theory is right.

Enjoy your little one. He's sounds great!

I really missed being pregnant for the first few months after DD was born. It passed! 13 months now and no sign of another yet! grin
