Am I the only one?

I think I am the only one here who hasn't had another LO since my Juneberrie!

That is very depressing.

Roll on Oct to become a rampant rabbit!! LOL.

Lol! Enjoy your time with Leia, its CRAZY! with 2! Not that I'd change things for the world, but man I want some sleep! I don't think I've slept since May! They both had chicken pox and Alice has been teething molars forever now. I'm a zombie!

Kristi, I still just have Thomas! And I'm a lot older than you, so don't worry! You have plenty of time! We are going to wait until next summer to start trying. Thomas will be almost 5 when the next baby (hopefully) is born. We just can't afford 2 in childcare, and I have to work. Plus, this gives us time alone with Thomas, and he eats it up. He loves the attention, and I'm happy to give it to him.

Aww I know and I am enjoying Leia so MUCH!! I do worry how she would be if I had another but then (and I know a dolly is different LOL) but she is sooo gentle with them and she always says she wants a brother and a sister haha. I know she would be so good with a baby and would love him or him too bits!!

I have decided that I am gonna start trying from Oct this year and aim to have baby when Leia starts big school.

I agree that going from 1 to 2 kids is crazy!!! While I wouldn't change it for the world, I rarely ever get time to myself unless my mother takes the kids for the night which happens like once every 3 months. At least when I had one kid, I could get things done when he was napping, but not anymore! They nap at different times. When one kid sleeps in, it never fails that the other one wakes up super early. I now have double the diapers and laundry...the list goes on lol. Oh, and my house gets tore apart even faster now with two kids. My house never can stay clean for more than a few hours.

Kristi- are things better with you and Andrew? I have not talked to you in a long time, so it must be since you are planning on TTC again in Oct. Smile

Hiii Amz!!

Yea, we haven't spoke in like forEVER. Not good, I miss you lol. I can imagine having 2 is hextic, but I would LOVE it.... heck if money was no object I'd be on my 3rd by now cuz I always wanted a big family. I guess I get scared too, incase anything was to happen to Andrew and I that she would be on her own. Ok, so she would have my family but it's not the same, ya know? I want her to have a sibling to share things with as they get older.

Things are tons better between me and Andrew. Don't get me wrong, we still have ups and downs but it's over ridiculous things. I also found that I was falling out with him for no reason and it was because of my feelings towards him.... like I resented him for a bit because of what he has put me through. We're working on it now though and I do love him dearly Smile

I probably will not be able to have another one. DH has fertility issues. We've been trying for 2 1/2 years now. It was hard to realize that she's probably going to be an older child. Thank goodness I have my Denali. She's the perfect child for me.

We thought about it, Kristi. But my husband's issues are so severe that we would have to do ICSI (where the sperm is injected directly into the egg.) Much more expensive. Fertility clinics just don't exist in Alaska. There is ONE doctor in the state who can do this procedure, and he's not even an OB/GYN doctor. He got training for it somewhere in Europe and is a complete D!CK to his patients, I hear. But even if we went to this man, who is a general practice doctor, it's just too expensive for a procedure (that may not work) to seriously consider. We had a miracle to get this one little girl. So I'm just happy to be a mom. Smile
