Good thing no one this site knows me in real life, b/c if they read this post they'd be hitting me right now. So I have 3 children, Brianne is 2 1/2 years old, Colin is 19 months old, and Kylie Paige is almost 4 months old. So my kids are very close in age. So, I just posted this am in the TTC while Breastfeeding forum that I have a feeling I COULD be preggo again. We are not TTC, we're using the pull-out method of birth control right now, which I kow isn't the best thing if I don't want another baby. A few weeks ago I swore I was going to get an IUD put in that I don't want anymore kids right now, and everyone keeps saying "so, when you having the next baby?" and I would tell them never. DH says he doesn't want anymore, but yet hasn't pushed me to get on the pill or d put in. But thinking about having a 4th now makes me sort of want a 4th. I know that probably sounds nuts since my kids are so young, and i'm stressed out a lot already, but I just don't know why I keep wanting more kids! I want to go back to school soon to pursue my degree in nurse-midwifery, but I can't help thinking I want a big family too. With breastfeeding (with supplementing with 1 bottle os formula daily) I havne't gotten my period yet, but I had some light cramping early this am. I keep thinking i'm pregnant DH swears he pulls out in time. Do you think it's possible, and if I am oregnant do ya'll think i'm crazy? I know my family will think i'm stupid, but we provide our children with more than enough frankly the little buggers are spoiled! I need to stop worrying about what other people think, but I hate the comments like "oh, you're so young, you're ruining your life!" My kids are such a blessing, and I love them terribly, we're a happy and loving family, but I still hate those darn comments. Any advice? Comments? Thanks!

I'm so darn cheap I hate to buy a test and have it turn out negative! Isn't the so silly? DH keeps insisting that i'm not pregnant, but let me tel you, I feel like I am! Either that or i'm coming down with something! I'm exhausted! And not b/ I have a 3 month old, ..she pretty much sleeps through the night. By mid-afternoon I wind up laying down with the kids for their nap, haha! I wake up feeling like i've been hit in the head with a brick! I just don't know what to think since I've never had a period since the birth of my last baby..

Yes, I waste more than a buck in gas driving into town everyday! LOL! I guess over the weekend if I have the time and privacy i'll go pick one up and take it, just to see what it says. My best friend's baby shower is tomororw, so maybe when I go pick up a cake i'll buy one, that's so scary!!!!

POAS!
And no you are not crazy! I am getting the reaction from my MIL because 4 of her kids were so close in age that I am a failure somehow. She had 5 altogether but 4 in diapers at the same time.
