wanting to be wtt


Hey everyone! I became a member of this site when i was ttc my 8 month old daughter, and I loved it then! Well, now I have baby fever!!! I want another one so bad, but then some days I don't...so i don't know if it's just a phase... I talked to my husband about it and he said bring it up again in 4 years. we already have a 7 year old and a 5 year old plus our 8 month old...so they would be 11, 9, and 4 in four years. I don't want THAT big of an age difference. I was thinking maybe when our youngest is two. that is still a year and a half away before we even begin trying. I hope I can explain how i feel to my hubby and he will agree with me. Anyway I just wanted to introduce myself and hope I will be speaking with all of you soon!

Katie

p.s. the 7 year old is my stepson, i have always wanted 3 kids. I know he makes 3 kids but i want 3 of my own..is that mean/selfish (hope not)

Hey cinnamum! Good to see u here! I did talk to my husband and he said maybe in two years if I have a job that will pay me maternity leave. Right now I don't but my mom said I should just start putting back for those 6 weeks now. So that may be what I do. Not sure if I will wait 2 years before I start trying. Last time it took 4 months. Might just wait until swayze is 2. That will be june 2012

Hi hun, believe me that is not selfish, I have 2 boys of my own (1 from previous relationship and 1 with hubby) and always wanted 3 kids too, but I also have 4 stepkids but they are 19/15/13/12 and like you I know we technically have 6 but I wanted 3 of my own. hubby didnt get it at first but has finally agreed and we will be ttc in april. :-)

welcome to wtt and I hope everything works out for you.

Thanks! Hubby is being difficult again about it tonight. I think I will just wait till the time comes to talk about it with him. I will just talk to ya'll instead! Everyone says you have to compromise in a marriage but this is something that can't really be compromised! You either have another baby or you don't. I just wish we were on the same page

maybe saying this will help, it helped us...

a second baby can use all of the first babies things, so all you have to buy is...
a bed and bedding for the first child.
new bras,
new bibs,

you can re-use the old carseat as the first baby will be in a bigger one by then.
it works out REALLY well.
obviously it all depends on how big your house/flat is but other than that a second child is cheap as chips.
were actually financially better off than we were this time last year, and we dont have a lodger either!!! we dont get it! LOL

oh yeah... we had ronny in his siters old moses basket for 6 months while we saved for a bed for TJ, we went to a carboot and picked up a beautiful cot-bed for 20. so we used the money we had saved on the children we bought all new bedding. it was an awesome find.
maybe you could go to carbootsales and lightly point out... ''look at how cheap everything is'' hehehehe
