I slept long enough to dream last night. I had a dream that I was pregnant again. I have not been able to go back to sleep, it really got me freaked out. I'm already not sleeping, my thoughts were immediately on losing more sleep. I think I would lose my mind.
Is anyone trying or planning on trying to get pregnant soon? I think we are done. It is bitter sweet.
I am not ready now for sure! We have always talked about having 3 though. I think we'd wait until Evan was in kindergarten to avoid 3 in daycare. We'll see though Rory isn't the easiest baby and I don't really enjoy being pregnant or the newborn phase....I LOVE toddler-hood though.....
Evan 12/10/09 9lbs 5 and 1/4 oz 21.5"
Rory 12/2/11 10lbs 12oz and 23"
OMG your subject line freaked me out! I thought you were making an announcement!
We are planning to have one more. Probably in about 2 years. Sometimes I have thoughts of not wanting to go through all this again, but I'm sure I will change my mind once things start to get easier...we'll see.
We'll have more I'm sure. Nick did a number on me physically and I want to be sure I have time to get my pelvic floor back in shape before going through another birth. We will probably follow NFP till nick is one and a half or so.
Baby #3 due July 6 2013
We are not sure now, which is sort of weird. We always thought we'd have two. But each of us independently has been thinking Elaina might be our only one. Her birth was extremely traumatizing (for both of us) which is why I haven't been able to write up a birth story yet. I was advised by my doctor (not my midwife!!!) to consider an elective c-section if we have another, and the thought of that is even more scary to me.
Wow Hilary. I'm so sorry to hear but from how it sounds I'd go for the csection next time too. I can't imagine having just one child even though for 11yrs Jesse was my only one. I wanted more right away but DH wanted to wait.
AFM: we are done. I had the tubal done in the hospital so unless doc did a bad job and it fails, Andrew is our last baby. I'm totally okay with this. I feel it's the right timing and decision for our family. I'm still sad about it though naturally.

I would love one more. I think kids need siblings, I know when I lost my parents it was a life saver to have a sibling to go through it with. Having Connor was really scary and I think it will be a year before I have another AT LEAST or I will adopt. We were planning on adopting before i got pregnant so I could easily go that route.
