Ok...have posted this in parenting and conception and not a sausage, so thought I'd try here...can't believe I'm the only one.....? Have a 16 mo DS and always planned a 3 year gap, so wouldn't be starting to ttc til at least next April ish. We really can't ttc before then for various reasons; professional, financial and personal and rationally I'm quite happy with that. Rationally the idea of being pregnant now (had HG with DS for first 16 weeks) is horrific and the thought of a newborn a bit scary too.....but but but someone from work has just had a baby and it's making me feel sooooo broody and I have to say quite emotional. I've been lost in memories of when DS was tiny and looking at photos of him when he was wee. Which is ironic as the first 3 months or so were really really really hard (early, teeny baby with colic). What is wrong with me? Is this just normal? Does everyone get this? Will I feel like this every time someone i know has a baby forever more?
Shift up so I can sit next to you then. DD is 18 months old and we will be starting ttc around New Year. Feels like ages away, especially as I've been broody since dd exited. Must be a nutter as I had a rotten first three months with undiagnosed PND etc. I am surrounded by pregnant women and feel like it's my turn now
