Does anyone else already want to have another??? I want to enjoy my time with Genevieve, but I also want to start trying to have another.... the thing is.... i KNOW how my parents will react... And I care how they think of me.. and at that same point... i want to be stable.. not working at kroger with DH working a PT job and a Temp FT job... with no insurance since I lost the state insurance AND my work insurance while I was on Maternity Leave... So I guess Ill have to wait until NEXT year... hopefully not any later than that..........
If I was stable I probably still would wait because of my parents.... Im an adult but i STILL listen to them WTH is up with that?! LOl
I am NOT ready for another child yet, we may quite possibly be done.
My spd was really bad this last time and I am not in a hurry to go through that again. My pelvis still occasionally gets little pains in it, I don't know if it will ever go away.
Also my body hangs onto weight while I'm bf'ing so I won't even get my close to getting my pre-pregnancy body back for a while yet. I have been pregnant or bf'ing continously since Feb 2007 and I can't wait for a break to feel like myself again.
But after my first I wanted another child within a few months (although we waited).
I'd like another baby, but not for a couple years. Hopefully DH will want another one by then. He always said that he wanted only one child. However, he is so completely in love with his son. Maybe he'll want to give him a sibling.

I always planned on having 2 kids and now that I have two it makes me sad to think about not having another one. We just can't afford it and we don't have the space now so I'm not sure if or when we'd have another.
We want to start trying again.. like yesterday, lol.
But, responsibilities come first. I only have one health insurance, instead of two (both of my pregnancies were free basically because we have two health insurance policies). Also, our child care providers are relatives, and three under three would just be a cruel joke.. lol.
So we're waiting until Charly is in kindergarten and Peyton is in preschool.. then we'll have two more.
That's what really makes us good mothers, you know? We are holding out on our wants to make sure that our child's needs are met first. Not conceiving because you don't have health insurance, can't afford it, your relationship isn't stable, your doctor wants you to wait.. those are all fantastic reasons to wait. And waiting for those reasons makes you a fantastic mother as you are accomplishing goal #1 of motherhood: Do everything in your power to ensure that your children's lives are the best that you can make them, even if it means sacrificing your own wants or needs.
A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the
present, and the hope and promise of the future.
Thats the least of my worries right now.. DH actually brings it up a lot and I'm just like ehh.. how bout no... I have a lot of work to do on myself before I can bring a third baby into this world... I think mentally a 3rd would make me go insane. And I need to get a job and move. But I am good with 2 for now.. possibly forever.
