    Default WHY???

    am I having a secret touch of baby fever???? Seriously?? There are so many reasons why J should be my last baby! First, pregnancy is tough for me! Second, I have had two c-sections with really tough recoveries, I don't think I could do a third. Third, DH is getting his masters and I am the breadwinner and I cannot imagine working with two kids AND being preggo, finally, we would need to buy a bigger car/house and set aside more $$ for college. And I am 35!

    So WHY would I be even thinking about this?

    I told DH today that I want to adopt an little girl from Nigeria after seeing her sweet face on a charity we support's facebook page. I was serious!

    anyone else, or am I the only crazy?

    I am having no thoughts of being pregnant again. Ever. LOL But I could totally be up for adoption maybe a few years down the road. There are so many kids that need loving families. We've had it so rough with Ryan that my husband would have me committed to a mental institution if I told him I wanted another baby.

    lol if I had had vaginal deliveries... I would be ready for a 4th right now. Honestly. Knowing it would be a 4th c-section is enough to keep it away a little.

    I know we are probably going to try to have one more, but I can't even think about it right now. I'm still trying to get things figured out with baby #1. I'm not sure what kind of crazy is going on with you.

    Hmmm,.. not sure what is going through your head. J/K I myself would be ready for another 1 or even 2 if we could just skip the whole pregnancy, delivery, and first year. Haha! No really, I do not enjoy the newborn stage that much...I feel much more comfortable once they reach the toddler/preschool years..not that I want to wish away the time with Allyson, she is precious and I love her to pieces of course, but I am looking forward to when she gets older.

    Haha. Sheila.

    That's one reason for me too. My mom is a twin so I think that ups my chances a bit. Plus the ones I have now I can't imagine how much harder it would be with one more. I feel overwhelmed a lot of times plus I'm ready for the next phases of my kids life. I'm a little sad I didn't get a daughter but I've upped my chances of getting a granddaughter

    Yeah you're crazy. lol! Just kidding! Frankly at this point the only way I will think of another is if we adopt. Labour and delivery was too traumatic and I don't want to think about an elective c-section for next time. Though I do want to give Elaina a sibling very much, and I know I am just still too close to her birth to even think practically about doing it again. So we will see. If we have another we wouldn't even start trying until she is at least 2.

    Yep, you're crazy. I LOVE the newborn phase, and could totally have another baby, but I'm enjoying feeling back to normal now!
