I've got Baby Fever so bad right now that I can't even think straight!! I don't know what it is but it hit me this same time last year too. DH and I talked about it last year, I actually got off the pill and we were NTNP for about 4-5 months. My body was so out of whack though that I ended up getting back on the pill in February. I know that we are done, but sometimes I just don't FEEL like we're done.
We're both in agreement that it wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen if I got pregnant again, I just don't want to obsess over it every month. Then I think about: The time I would have to take off from work. What if I had a harder time this go around and was bed-ridden for weeks? What if when I went back to work there was no room in the daycare my kids go to and the baby ended up on a waiting list? How are we going to afford the doctor bills and the cost of delivery? We only have 3 bedrooms, so where will the baby sleep? Will we need a bigger car?
Obviously it's just more logical to be done and move on. So how do I shut this switch off in my brain?
I don't think there is a way to shut the switch off. Every time some one I know announces they are pregnant my baby fever starts up again too. I have a list though that I read every time it does. On that list is all the cons about having another baby. And a few exaggerations as well. It helps put our decision into perspective for me.
