PLEEEASE. slap ME AND REMIND ME ABOUT MORNING SICKNESS, pregnency varicose veins, childbirth sleepless nights....

Both DH and I are broody. Already got a few children all of them lovely. At some point we have to stop having children though but I just have the urge... do I make it go?????!

nickytwoooohtimes Thu 23-Oct-08 12:29:48

lol at a few children!

lazarou Thu 23-Oct-08 12:32:45

It goes away eventually. Just remind yourself of the fact that once it's in it has to come out. Also, think about the worry and the hormones still raging after you've had it!

coolkat Thu 23-Oct-08 12:35:00

You asked!

Piles, inability to bend, back ache, more sleepless nights, looking like an elephant . . .

Can you tell I am 38 1/2 <that 1/2 makes a big difference!> weeks pregnant and fed up as hell!

lazarou Thu 23-Oct-08 12:37:35

And in the hospital when you've just managed to fall asleep, a midwife will come in and ask you to show her how you are breastfeeding. So you have to wake your 'finally asleep that night' baby, and then he's not interested anyway while she pokes at your boob and tries to shove it into the uninterested creatures mouth. Then she says 'oh, I don't think he's interested' and then leaves the room while you are now wide awake with a wide awake baby, and it is now nearly morning so there's no point in going back to sleep anyway, or ever again really.

The end.

Sorry if I upset you DNA. X

yesmynameisigglepiggle Thu 23-Oct-08 13:26:16

I don't care about any of that! God help me..............................

QuintessentialShadows Thu 23-Oct-08 13:27:38

"a few children" how many do you count as a few? 2? 3? 10? 29?

PsychoAxeMurdererMum Thu 23-Oct-08 13:33:07

are you brangelina??

arabella2 Thu 23-Oct-08 13:45:58

We have 3 kids who are 2 4 and 6 and it is only now that we can start doing things all together more normally - the first 2 years of the baby's life I think the others sort of miss out so maybe think of that??

yesmynameisigglepiggle Thu 23-Oct-08 14:38:14

I have3. The youngest is just 2, the oldest 6. Somehow feel one always misses out...

DraculaNeedsArteries Thu 23-Oct-08 14:45:43

you didn't upset me.....I just wanna be pg

PsychoAxeMurdererMum Thu 23-Oct-08 15:26:32

igglepiggle.......if you want one, have one. you will forever regret it otherwise.

I have five, and will always feel a little sad that we didn;t 'even up' and have baby#6, but then, I don;t think I would have survived another pregnancy as I was very ill during and after DC5 and then needed an op during which I reacted to some drug and they had to rescusitate me. even knowing that does not take away that feeling of someone missing..........altho now the elder two are teens I am rapidly thanking some higher power that I am blessed with the five I have, and not the extra child which will prolong the agony that is teendomhmmwink!

you are both in agreement, so I say GO FOR IT.

and have lots of fun with the trying

Egg Thu 23-Oct-08 15:31:00

Think about whether you would be happy if went for one more and got twins, or triplets... grin.

I do look longingly at pregnant women, I love pregnant bellies, and all that. But never, never again will I ever risk having sex just incase......

yesmynameisigglepiggle Thu 23-Oct-08 16:24:24

Lol! I do want to 'even up' . I wouldn't mind twins , I love kids and babies and so does DH.

-a yummy baby, toddler and another child to love
-even number
-could get a girl (got three boys)
-a longer time til they are all at school and I have nobody
-a baby to carry in a sling and feeds

-less time for each child ( worry most about this)
-More financial pressure
-varicose veins
-hmmm, can't think. Am over pooing in labour, done it 3 times...oooh i get all excited about a new baby!

DH says yes he wants another but now. I said wait as I don't want another summer borm (have 2 and feel they are at a disadvantage)

Come on, you are not doing very well at putting me off!! I have said for the past 2 years never again. What on earth is happening to me????!!!!

PsychoAxeMurdererMum Thu 23-Oct-08 17:08:18

oh but you need a scrummy baby with that new baby smell that makes your womb go 'flip' when they snuffle into you, and then you pick them up and they do that little bum-sticky-out stretchy thing, and the drunk-on-good-milk look they have when you feed them.......

youo know you want one

sweetkitty Thu 23-Oct-08 17:12:23

I need a big slap as well I have 3 girls the youngest is 3 months old, I have crap pregnancies the last one nearly did me in I could hardly walk with SPD, we only have 3 bedrooms and I can't see us moving for years, the car only fits 3, I am stressed and knackered as it is yet when I pick up my lovely little baby I cannot imagine her being my last.

Newborns they cast a spell on you, wears off my the toddler years I find.

yesmynameisigglepiggle Thu 23-Oct-08 17:18:35

I find it wears off between 1 and 2 then when they reach two and become independent it hits you that they are not babys.

Oooh the smell of a newborn. They smell like weetabix. And the tiny little bums and snuggled under my coat in the sling!!! Stop me now!

My pregnancies were not too bad but I hated being fat, loved the anticipation and something to look forward to,loved the feeling off the baby moving.

Psycho, what's it like with 5? Do you have to be super organised, do they help each other? Do you have support.
Are you Supermoman??!

sweetkitty Thu 23-Oct-08 17:21:17

My last labour was 95 minutes long from waters going to baby, only really an hour of hard pains.

Do you think if I did have a fourth I could pop one out in under an hour?

PsychoAxeMurdererMum Thu 23-Oct-08 17:25:59

yes, I am superwoman

actually, for me I have found it fairly easy in some respects. I was not handed all five on a plate to get on with it, and so, with them coming on as each of them did, we have adapted to each of them easily.

I did nannie for twin boys before hand tho, and trained as a nursery nurse, so I did have that added advantage, and I am slightly military in organising when we go out/away (personality defect DH calls ithmmwink).

I will say tho, my top need a good sense of humour and a very well stocked wine cabinetwinkgrin

yesmynameisigglepiggle Thu 23-Oct-08 17:36:04

Oh the wine thing is true. A glass before bath/bed always helps and makes me a better Mum. Do you mind asking me the age gaps. Mine are 6, 5 and 2. Found 3 year gap good but don't want gap to be too big between 3 and 4. Oh my God I am planning it now blush

I am organised and I love being a Mum. I love little kids, not sure how I would deal with lots of older ones though!

PsychoAxeMurdererMum Thu 23-Oct-08 17:45:45

mine are (now) 14, 12, 9, 8 and 6.

age gaps (in precise form)

DD1 - 22mths later - DD2 - 34mths later - DD3 - 17mths later - DS1 - 26mths later - DS2.

best gap was 22mths and 34mths

hardest (unsurprisingly) 17mths, altho.......DD3 and DS1 were like twins for a long time and are very close now. I think it was only hard because of the long time with nappies on two babies. (plus, DD3 was in and out of hospital too which was not helpful!).

PortAndDemon Thu 23-Oct-08 17:50:46

Um... aterpains get worse with each baby, so you would be in for some serious ouchies?

But really, goongoongoongoongoon... you know you want to...
