We had our 2 and we were pretty content with it until one day when i sat down and i looked at my DH and i told him i feel like i should be holding a baby. Then about a month later he folded his arms as if cradling a baby and said i completly get that feeling. And now just under a year later im 22 weeks pregnant.
Jake was 2 and there was a kind of empty feeling, like someone was missing. We were sitting at a table for 4, like we usually did cos it gives extra space for stroller etc. But that day it felt like we were waiting for someone else to arrive. That feeling got stronger and stronger. My husband was ready before me, he described it as a nagging feeling in his head.
For me the only time I was really 'ready' I think was after a loss. I felt a need to get pregnant like right now and thankfully it happened that same cycle. otherwise, usually Im never really 'ready' in the begining.
I never wanted more than 1, then this summer I saw how well Audrey did with my stepkids and I just felt like there was another baby out there waiting to join our family.. I still feel that way , DH however is not so on board.
I dunno I just felt ready....Raianna was a pretty easy baby once I figured out the feeding stuff....she had a hard time of the nursing thing at first...and I was already babysitting for others and I knew I could handle another baby just fine and we were in a good place at the time money wise and were looking into buying our first house

None of my babies were planned (they were in that I always knew I wanted kids, I just wasn't sure when, I guess?)- so I was never really feeling "ready" but I was never totally freaked out and "un-ready" either.
LOL uhh...with Tyler we didnt. There was BFP one day and that was that. (TMI) We were having a rough month the month she was conceived and only dtd one time with protection but here she is. To be honest I am still not "ready" and she is a year old now but she is here and I do what I gotta do because she is my child and did not ask to be born.

Well, I wanted my kids close in age so after our first was born we started ttc right away and we had some troubles so it actually 4 years to get pregnant. Then after that pretty much once they hit that 1 yr mark I had that baby fever set in and we'd start ttc again, it always took a while except for the last one which is why he and his brother are so close in age, we expected at least a year of ttc... nope lol! He's 1 now and that fever hasn't set in... that's probably a good thing because I'm really quite busy with the 4 lol.
I don't have a good explanation for when I was ready. I just know I get really sad when AF shows and I get all sentimental when I see little babies. I am happy and sad at the same time when I find out a friend is pregos. There are all these little signs.
I don't want to forget my body- it has sort of bounced back from the previous pregnancy and is ready now.
