Hi Everyone

I had to laugh when I read the title to this board. That is sooooo our situation!!!!! I have a 14 month old daughter and we want to concieve our next in hopefully August. I am a wahm, I have tried a few wah things before but this puts the icing on the cake. I am so glad I have found it. I have a question for moms that are trying or not preventing another pregnancy. Do you get nervous about getting pregnant again? I do, I worry about having enough time with my daughter, and worry if she will be missing out. I am a huge worrier, so I don't know if what I am feeling is normal or if its just me!

There are so many boards and topics on here, I am completely amazed with this site!!!! I like to be able to have a way of connecting with moms that are going through the same things. I have 1 freind that has kids, but lives half way across the country right now Well thanks to those who have made it this far.

Welcome!

I'm SAHM mom to an 8 month old son and definitely know how you feel. We're open to having more children (I always pictured myself with a big family), but it's hard to know if it's right or not. My little guy is such a great kid, I'd never want to do anything to make him feel less special. I think it's common and natural to worry about stuff like that.

JM has been a really great place for me. I didn't have many friends with kids when I got pregnant, so it was nice to come to a place where everyone is in the same boat.

Welcome!!

You will absolutely love it here the ladies are lovely.

Me and my partner have been NTNP for a little over a week now. We're more leaning toward trying than not, but still I find myself at home here

I hope your stay is short and sweet

welcome! I'm Chelsea [22] married to Sam [25] and momma to my sweet, sweet baby girl, Brylie Ann [08.08.09]. Sam and I are actively trying for #2 now after a chemical loss in May. Bry is an IUI baby and we are really praying to avoid fertility treatments again. I stay here because the TTC boards make me crazy!!

I too sometimes worry about giving Brylie a sibling and not "enjoying" her per say, BUT I am an only child and I hate it. My mom died when I was 17 and I dont know my sperm donor. Everyday I wish I had a sibling. When your parents are gone - you are truly left with no one. It's awful, and I just can't do that to her. I want to give her many siblings so she has a lot of people after I'm gone and her dad is gone. (hopefully not anytime soon)

I can't wait to get to know you better!

I can't answer your question b/c I don't have any children yet. Although I am nervous about the prospect of getting PG with my first (for different reasons, of course). I just wanted to say welcome. I hope you get your BFP soon.

I also would like to have a big family, I would love to have 4 kids and 3 at the least. I have a brother, and a half sister. I also have a step-sister and a step-brother. But for the most part it has always been just me and my brother. My neice is an only child, she is 8 and I see that she is very lonely being an only child. But she is also selfish and doesn't want any siblings. She says she doesn't want to share the attention!!! LOL, kids these days sure do speak their minds at a younger age!!!!

I really see where you are coming from with your situation, and wanting more kids. I am so sorry for your loss. I am not that close with my mom, but I could not imagine what you have been through. I wish you the best with your journey of expanding your family.

I want a bunch of kids, too. At least 3, but I think 5 would be fun.

The first time I was pregnant it was so weird. I could only picture life until labor, not really life with the baby. I can't wait to do it again since I know what it's like now. I think I'd be able to enjoy it more.

Goodness, I was the same way. I didn't want to have her, I wanted to keep her all to myself LOL. But after 3 days of labor I was ready to rest. I think the next time will be different knowing what to expect also. Not being nervouse thinking if your going to hurt them because they are so small, and all that fun stuff you worry about with your first. The only thing is losing sleep. I hope that I will have enough energy to handle it all!!!!!!

^^ Ooo sleep. I LOVE sleep. Levi does too! He's slept through the night since he was 3 weeks old and has always been a good napper. I could be in for a rude awakening if our next doesn't love sleep as much. Hopefully that's genetic!

Ava is usually a good sleeper but right now she is teething (cutting her back teeth) and she has allergies bad right now due to our wonderful weather =). So she has been waking throughout the night lately. I breastfeed, I should be to the point where I should be weaning her off, but she will not eat anything else. Once in a while she has an appetite for something different but not often.
