I have 3 kids, I am NOT having anymore.....but ever since Lilah started walking, I have CRAZY baby fever. Both DH and I have commented on how much we're going to miss having a baby. I know 3 kids is right for us and 4 is not....lol.....but I can't help but think about it. DH said if we were guaranteed a boy next time he would do it again and have one more. No guarantees though, and 3 is good for us.....so now I just get to sit and suffer through baby fever and try to remember I will be a grandmother one day and have babies around once more!

I'm there with you, although we are planning one more. I KNOW I will struggle with it even after we are done. I think I'll always have some degree of it. But, we don't want 52 kids, so I will have to manage to get through it sometime. But it certainly does make things harder when it's ever-present. Do you have any friends or relatives having babies down the line? I keep telling myself I'll just snuggle my nieces and nephews and it will tide me over til my kiddos are old enough for their own babies.

Ditto for me too! My son is a huge challenge, but my heart longs for a third! But, I think it might push us over the edge. I'm going to see how I feel in a year. My only issue is I am already 35, so time is not on my side!

Mine comes and goes but I have it BAD right now. We so aren't ready though. Maybe in a few months. I really really want my girl!! At first I didn't think I cared either way, but I do

Melissa, I was like that too. I wanted my girl! I am so thankful I got her! Of course now I'm faced with should we go for a third? If I had had a second boy, I would definitely have gone for a third!

I didnt get a chance to have baby fever lol. But Its so hard to accept never having a daughter. I know I still have time but 5 would be way too much work even if we did have a girl. 4 boys is good and I wasnt even sure we wanted to try again until we found out we were already pregnant.

I know how you feel! 3 is it for us, but if we were guaranteed a girl next I think I would try to convince DH to go for the 4th. I just hope that I have a few grandbabies some day, but I can't believe I will never have another of my own :'(

if only we could win the lottery!

I have not had any problems with baby fever! Hah! Perhaps if I had easier babies, and if Kody was sleeping through the night, maybe. But at this point, nope! I still have something that makes me feel like I'm not ready for DH to get the big V, but other than that, no pangs for another baby. Kody is still way too dependent on me to want MORE of that. LOL!
