My gorgeous girl is only 8 weeks old and despite being exhausted from the sleepless nights, I'm already thinking about number 2! Have been since she was born if I'm honest! I put it down to hormones initially and thought the broodiness would soon shift, but no! Anyone else feel the same?
My LO is 8 weeks nearly and I WAS broody for #2 until... my OH son came down, I feel like Im cracking up sometimes as my LO has got bad colic it's come on worse and he's just crying at nothing (so i think) and OH's 2 n half year old... well everyone says he's a typical 2 yr old but he's so disobedient, clingy, tantrumy and wants everything it's breaking me (he's been here for 3 weeks and I've been looking after the 2 while OH's in work) I feel gulity for saying it as I love my stepson but I cant wait for him to go back on thursday, going from 0 kids to 2 in a matter of weeks was hard (yes I did know OH had a child before though) and my OH doesnt help I cant completely blame the kids but he is too soft and contradicts me if I try to put boundaries in place or discipline.
I cant help think it may be a little easier with my own children as there is definetly a different bond with your own.
I wasnt broody at first, i just wanted to enjoy the baby id just had, but by month 2 me and OH were discussing when we'd like to start trying for Number 2, we agreed when LO was 6 months, but over the past month its gotten so much stronger for both of us that im booked to have the implant removed in 2 weeks time, and were going to start trying as soon as i get home afterwards
I hated being pregnant, it wasnt a very pleasant experience for me, but it was totally worth it for my beautiful daughter, and im totally willing to do it again.
i was really broody after my baby was born, he's 8 months old now and i sometimes sit there and think that if we had tried then i'd be 5 or 6 months pregnant now and that thought terrifies me! now my baby is a bit older i love spoiling him and watching his personality develop and couldn't imagine doing all that whilst being heavily pregnant. i am still jealous though everytime somebody new says they're expecting
