that we are trying for a third baby. She is always talking about how she wants us to have more kids because the boys are getting older. Justin(my BF) was trying to explain something and didn't know if I was going to tell her or not and stopped mid-sentence and stared at me helplessly LOL MEN! I said "Mom, we are trying for a third baby." She looked kind of shocked and then said "I guess I should be careful what I wish for!" Ummm OK?? I asked her WTH she meant by that and she hugged me and said she was just a little shocked that we are trying so soon...Soon? Preston is 3 years old. I wanted to start last year, but we weren't ready financially for that. Then to put the icing on the cake I told her that after #3 we would probably just go ahead and make it an even 4. LOL.


Overall she was happy, but sometimes I think my mom's a little loopy!

Moms can give such mixed signals. . That's good she wasn't completely negative. I bet by the time you get pregnant she'll be super happy for you! I like how you dropped the 4th child in, too, haha.

I've been dropping subtle hints since I had Levi to prepare everyone for the possibility of baby #2. Not many people were happy when I first told them I was pregnant with Levi. It sucks when people aren't just super happy when they find out about a new baby, so I'd like to avoid that.

Nikki you really are going to have 4? That is awesome. My family gave me crap not only because this is #5 but because of the small age gap between Shaye and this baby. It is funny how everyone thinks they know what is best for you...more than you do!

my grandmother is like that... my oldest cousin (10) and her brother (9 this july) are a year and some odd months apart (november of 1999 and july of 2001). my grandmother told their mother that they were too close together and she should have waited, and when my aunt had her youngest (5, born march of 2005) my grandmother complained that they were too far apart! i guess most moms are like that. my sister had her oldest in september of 2008 and just recently had a little girl this may. my mom made a big deal about it but there were a lot of complications during both pregnancies. i guess it just depends on the situation.

but anyways, good luck on ttc! i hope all goes smoothly and you get #3 soon! and just to throw it in early, good luck on ttc #4

I really do want 4...but I guess we should have the third and see how that goes 1st! I never wanted a lot of kids but now that the boys are older I am kind of rethinking that decision.
