I'm finally admitting it ladies (can't bring myself to tell DH!) I've been feeling really brood since giving birth, I thought it would go away, and it won't!
Why am I feeling this way? I'm absolutely in love with my son, I love ebfing and want to enjoy him but there is an overwhelming feeling! Aghh..
We're no way ready for a 2nd, DH is about to start training away mon-fri until sept, then a move to the very top of Scotland (8hours away!) We have 2 big 1 year old puppies (husky x German shepherd & a northern inuit) who are pains in the bum at times! 2 cheeky cats and my gorgeous albino budgie - so a houseful!
I finished my degree last year and am on maternity although I don't plan on returning due to the big move! But I want more children (2-3) would love a daughter! But my problem I can't stop thinking about is that I want to be a SAHM until school age but also want to start a career in the next few years. This would be extended if leaving 2-3 years between children.... I don't know I'm so confused?!?
Any of you in a similar position? I'm all confused, I find myself in many a debate in my head, Im driving myself crazy!
Ps- apologies for any mistakes, I'm on my phone! Scuttled away so DH couldn't see his crazy wife talking about more kids
i felt this way untill a few weeks ago hun!
But one day i just felt so much love towards Kai i didnt want another baby yet simply because i wanted to devote all my time and love to him (not slagging anyone off for having 2 under 2!!) its just a personal choice xxx
We are busy trying for another, managed to hold off until new year, but would've gone for it much sooner... I am totally with you, but also want to be able to spend as long as possible with number one before another comes along. Its important to me to have a big family reasonably close together, but I want to enjoy what we already have (an amazing little boy)! Good luck with whatever you choose! Cx
I'm very broody too. Two of my friends are about to give birth and my best friend just found she's pregnant so that doesn't help. We not trying OH doesn't want another yet and deep down I don't. There is only a year between my nephews and I know I couldn't cope with that age gap. We will prob try autumn 2013 so there's around 2 1/2 years between children. But if you feel ready and it would work for your family then go for it lol.
I am exactly the same! Totally confused. It took us a while to conceive our lo which I think is also part of them problem as I am scared preventing a pregnancy means we are cutting our chances. My lo is 10 weeks, we have said we will try when he is 1... but..... I think in a few months I would like to have another chat about it. I feel incredibly lucky to have 1 child, but always dreamt of 3.
Its so hard to shift the feeling though, I wonder if it is a bit of hormones still as well... I love my little man to pieces, he is completely amazing and everyday just gets better.. but the niggle is still at the back of my mind!
I am very broody!!! Strangely I also miss the labour/birth and first night in hospital! My baby is growing too fast! I would do anything to have those precious moments back! Best day of my life was having him! Think that's the reason for me more so than wanting the whole pregnancy etc xxx
