Im pretty new here and the reason I joined is because Iv been wanting baby number 3 for quite a long time now..the problem is everyone I mention this to looks at me as if have 3 heads!
Im 28 and my kids are 7 and 9 years old and for the past couple of years I have been feeling the urge to have another baby (it would be my husbands 2nd child because my son is from another relationship).So a couple of nights ago I was chatting to my parents and grandmother at a family meal and I happened to mention that my husband and I were thinking about going for another baby.Their reaction was just cruel..they said that we were crazy to think about such a thing and that what on earth did we want to make such a HUGE mistake for!!! They laughed off the idea making fun of us all the time! I was so upset! After all,Im a married woman and if anything they should have respected what my husband and I wanted and just been happy because they are going to be grandparents again.
They said we are too young to be chained down by another kid..but I dont see it that way.I think Im still young and by the time the baby is grown,Im still young enough to catch up on some fun with my husband..my parents made it sound as if I were about to inject myself with a terminal disease!!
Anyway..my husband and I have decided that as soon as I finish this months supply of my pills (I have about 18 left),I wont be taking any more and we will be officially ttc
Please tell me Im not being selfish or crazy? Is wanting another baby after having 2 crazy? Why do some people react in such a negative way? What are your experiences with 3 kids? (2 older and one new baby).
I feel so upset that the only people that seem to be happy about this are me and my husband
Thanks so much for any input
Oh girl dont let them think your crazy,man Im on ttc #6 and I dont care what others thank they say its my chioce.My personal opion is what you and your husband thank is all that matters.heak you have older kids Im sure they would enjoy haveing a baby around.Im the same way I want to have my last now so I still have time to enjoy things with my hubby.Im 29.I say go for it and no your not crazy.Jerrie
