I don't know what has overcome me but I am getting baby fever and it needs to go away When my husband and I first met 11 years ago we talked about having 4 kids but since then we thought 2 was a good number for us. I love my family of 4 and on most days I feel really complete especially because I do have a girl and a boy. But there there are some days where I would just love to be able to add 2 more little ones to our family. I just love being pregnant and have had awesome, easy pregnancies. I really want to have a water birth in a hospital and have the gender be a surprise. Both of my kids love babies and I think they would be awesome big siblings. I would also want my next 2 kids to be close in age because I am only getting older and well I loved having kids close in age. The one thing stopping is money and we just don't have much anymore since my husband got laid off But just the other day we talked about adding to our family and he said "never say never" and then he said "all you need to do is having your IUD taken out and you could get pregnant right?" I am going to be 32 in October and didn't see myself having kids after 35 but who knows what the future holds right, he he!
To be really honest my daughter was concieved right after I got off BC (found out at 11 weeks along) and we were still living in a 1 bedroom apt upstairs and I felt soo unprepared about having a baby. My son was very much a surprise and I just didn't think I would be able to be a good mom to 2 kids less than 2 years apart. Everything has worked out wonderfully and I feel soo blessed I have 2 awesome kids! So I have never really had baby fever before so this is all new to be but I think it is normal since my son just turned 2 years old recently. Anyways I guess I am just rambling now but I just wanted to ge it out Anyone else have baby fever?

I get baby fever bad, and I can never fight it off, it always ends in a baby sooner than I had originally planned.

in thirty years are you going to regret the kids you didn't have, or the ones who bless your life each day? I absolutely do not have baby fever (actually have a baby with a fever), but after four we didn't feel done and hoped for #5-now we're done with no regrets.

Lucky mother to five!

On a scale from 1-10 we're at a 7 or so. We're NTNP so if it happens, it happens :-)

Is baby Aubrey Alana or Jacob Robert?!

No baby fever, could be because I have a new baby. I am just hoping some day that DH and I agree we are done.

ETA: About money, my husband always says "Should Beau/Tessa not exist because we want to give Scarlett Ballet lessons and a car when she is sixteen?"

I already have it and my baby is only a month old! I think after ttc for awhile it's hard to get myself to stop thinking that way plus I absolutely love being pregnant. That's why i'm looking into being a surrogate.
