Kim I'm with you! If I could skip the pregnancy and NB phase I'd be happy I feel badly wishing away Rory's baby-hood but I like kids who can talk to me and play by themselves. All that being said I don't think I'm cut out to adopt. Friends are heading to China in a week to adopt their little boy and when I talk with them I'm in awe of their strength. All they've done to get to this point and all they will do once they have him makes the healthy, cranky newborn thing seem pretty easy.
DH and I have always talked about 3 kids and in my mind I see 3 kids but I really struggle with the idea of another pregnancy and NB phase. I really don't think we'd go for 3 until Evan was closer to kindergarten so we have time to figure out if we're done with 2 or not.
Evan 12/10/09 9lbs 5 and 1/4 oz 21.5"
Rory 12/2/11 10lbs 12oz and 23"
I know I've said this before, but if I could financially afford to be a SAHM I would totally want one or two more. DH would probably leave me if I let him in on that little piece of information lol, but I don't care. I wouldn't need to get a new car if I had another one, either, as my car seats seven, and we wouldn't need a new house, either (although we would be a little cramped lol) beceause if it were another boy he could share a room with Trystan and if it were a girl she could share a room with DD (but who are we kidding, it would probably we TWIN boys!!). This is definitely not happening... but a girl can dream!

I know I have the fever, lol. It's SO weird, I was SO freakin miserable when I was pregnant that last month (there was a 10lb baby in there, after all!) and I cried almost every night about how I was "one and done" and I'd never do it again....but I totally MISS being pregnant now. About a week after I had Harper my husband walked into the living room where I was sitting there sobbing about how I missed being pregnant....he thought it was hysterical! LOL!
We will probably start TTC #2 at the end of this year, to try to have them about 2 years apart. The other thing I thought I'd never say is that I'm glad I had a c section and I have no desire to VBAC. I thought id be really upset about a c/s but to me it wasnt bad all that horrible. Yeah, I was really sore and the recovery was slower but the surgery itself was not bad at all. I'm happy that the next delivery will be a planned c/s.
