I already have two children and they are teens now. I was working, when they were babies and both times I only managed to breastfeed for about 6 months. I'm proud of that, but if I could back and do it differently, it would have been nice to be a stay-at-home-mom and I think the BF would have gone better. BF times are special!
Mine are about 2-1/2 years apart and I liked that interval. It was soon enough, that Emily was old enough to play with Sarah and most of the time, they are good buds with each other!
Vaginal births would have been nice, too. I ended up with 2 c-sections. Although, I'm very grateful to have 2 healthy children, I will never know what a vaginal birth is really like. On the other hand, I have 2 wonderful kids and it doesn't really matter how they came into the world.

I plan on having one more. The only thing we plan on doing differently is we are going to have a home birth the next time. I'm still BF my DS, who is almost 7 months and I plan on doing it till he's atleast a year old.
I would make sleep shifts... Where I would go to sleep early, and then get a good 5 hours of sleep and then be up at night and let him sleep... I was doing all the day and night duty and it about killed us both (I fell asleep with him on my chest and he rolled off of me )
I'd breastfeed longer... I'd do a home birth like Nina...
I would not stress over so many things and have an endless supply of batteries and such for my digital camera.. i spent soo much time freaking over things that I hardly have any pictures of him from when he was tiny
I would get off my butt and be more organized with the baby books.. I feel awful! My daughters is half not done and I haven't even started my sons....
