I have a lot of days where I get excited about another little one in the future and then a lot of others when I am like no way!! We are supposed to TTC in Aug, which is less than 6 months away now - crazy! I hope I feel more decided once we get closer, just wondering if anyone does this too.

I am SO totally on the same boat right now.

Originally, we wanted to space our kids further apart, so I had convinced myself that I had a long wait ahead.

Then DH dropped the bomb that he wants to have me stay home and run the admin side of his business after we have our next child. His business seems to be going way better than planned, so he needs me home sooner rather than later.

I REALLY want my mat-leave, so we've switched our TTC date to July-ish.

I am still not ready for that. I keep looking at my ticker and thinking "holy crap, I have to get my IUD out in 3-4 months!

I'm also hoping I warm up to the idea. It still freaks me out a bit. I want a second child, but it scares the jeepers outta me!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Yeah, I've been waffling a lot lately. Getting back into shape, waiting to buy a new house, going on vacation - Pax is perfection...we have such a fun groove for our family. I feel he deserves a brother or sister but I'm looking forward to all of the fun ahead of us! And the timing for Baby C #2 (BC2) just keeps getting pushed further and further out.

I do sometimes, but mostly because I'm trying to figure out when a pregnancy would line up nicely with what is going on at work. It's frustrating though because it is really hard to predict how things will go.

Yes, all the time! I want a spring/summer baby so that means TTC in the Fall or so. I keep thinking I'll chicken out for this coming Fall. But if I wait till the next one that would put a 4 year gap between the kids, so I don't know at all! :0

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!
