OK so baby #7 was born Feb 29, and I'm already thinking about the next baby!
Am I the only one who does that?
My pregnancy, labor, and delivery were so easy that I think it's that much easier to think about doing it again.
We have left our family size up to God. I pray all the time and plead with God that if we are meant to be done, He will make it glaringly obvious. A perfect pgcy, labor, and delivery, and perfect baby don't make it that obvious!! LOL So I get excited thinking about another.
I nurse my babies and am one of those people who doesn't get af for a good long while, like around 18 months, so if history repeats itself, it isn't like we'll have another any time soon. Still...it excites me to think of number 8!

Yeah, #8's birthday was so awesome I wanted to do it again. I forget how these last few weeks are, though. I am suffering now, nstead of later.

I say to each their own, everyone is so very different, so for most here in this forum, the more the merrier lol

In my case, I knew 4 was the magic number for me. I had suffered for a few years with infertility problems (and after a lot of research, I think I might have had/still have PCOS!). Of course now I'm researching PCOS info even though I am not interested in having any more babies (my youngest turned 13 last month), but I would like to better understand some health issues I'm going through.
