Baby Fever??

Anyone else? My BFF is just starting to try and she's talking to me about all the opk's and its getting me all baby fever-ed! I would serioulsy stress out if we got preggo, but I'm now reading the July/Aug 2012 boards :eek: I gotta reel it in...

Not quite yet, but I know it'll happen! DH had a vasectomy in May and pretty much within days of Isaiah being born I regretted doing anything permanent (of course I swore I never wanted to be pregnant again in May Blum 3 ). I'll have to live vicariously through all the moms that will have more cause unless the procedure didn't work we're done

LOL!!! Oh totally add me to the list. I'd freak out if I was pg now, but I definitely want another. haha. I hold Orion and daydream of a 3rd baby ... been doing that for a while now :rolleyes:

I'm on the regular pill since I'm not nursing, so I *think* I'm safe for now. lol. If anything did happen while I'm on the pill, then I guess it's meant to be.

Another thought, its SO hard to believe that we were getting our BFPs almost a year ago. I found out on Dec 1 so around this time we were conceiving... the year has FLOWN by.

I have baby fever bad! Rationally, I don't want anymore, and DH got the V anyway. But a bunch of my friends are currently preggo (two with twins!) and it makes me want to start POAS, lol.

YES! And I want to try, but we haven’t the time?! Plus I’ve only spotted, and I havnt had a real period yet, Im guessing because of the BF. It was he he he… a year ago yesterday/today that Ben was conceived and we found out on Thanksgiving morning. Is it bad I’ve already got another name picked out? Holden (FOR SURE for a boy) or Amelia if we conceive a girl. I SOO wish I was a SHAM! But it’s probably better that we wait a little because I don’t need ANOTHER July baby.  My mother in law already jokes about making sure to knock really loud in the months of October/November.

Everyone of my friends except two are preg right now! One just had her baby last week....her first and he was 10lbs 14 oz!!! He is literally the size of Emily at 11wks! His head was a whopping 38cm!

I went to see them in the hospital last night and to be honest, I wasn't feeling the baby fever. Well maybe for a min Smile we actually had a little scare a few wks ago. I got AF at 4wk pp and it was def. AF, then didn't get it again! Still haven't but all tests say negative. I wouldn't care so much but our daycare bill is $1200 a month so if we had three it would be $1800 a month! I don't want to go there just yet. When DD1 is close to kindy we will revisit adding a third.

Happy one year conception day to Alex yesterday! I do still want another baby but I think we are done... if we have another, the age difference will be very big.

LOL! I made a comment on FB the other day about hating when daylight savings ends b/c it gets dark so early, and my cousin made a comment back about knowing how I keep busy in November! LOL ... with 2 August babies, I said "guilty as charged" LOL!

My 2 year old's speech therapist has an 8 month old and just found out she's 3 month pregnant. "Mini pill and nursing is not always effective" she said. That's what we are doing and lately I've been bad about remembering the pill. DH needs to get his V done. I'm staring to fear dtd worrying I'll get preggo again.

We had a few chances while I was just BF and before the pill. We decided the risk was worth it Biggrin I have to admit, a crazy part of me was sad when I got a BFN.

There is a 90% chance we will go for a 3rd but unless we are plesantly surprised, it won't be for several years.

I seem to always have baby fever. it kinda sucks. I just put the bassinet away the other day. its been out since i was 8 months pregnant with our 2nd son. i just couldn't put it away after he was done with it.....sigh so i knew if i left it empty and sitting in our room, i'd end up putting a 4th in it.

We are definitely having a 3rd, and I'd still like a 4th...I just don't know if I'll want a 4th after our 3rd Smile I'd like them to be at least as far apart as our 2 now (22 mo) and probably a couple extra months, but with my friend doing all the ttc-ing, I get all baby-fevered and then go read the August 2012 forum! It'll pass...and it might have been because I had AF and was all emotional.

I want to space the babies close so once i am done i am done... if that makes any sense.

Dh has been very adiment about condoms tho, and I am exclusivly BF,so unless we are ment to have another baby right away I think we may hold off until lilly is a year or so.

They'll still be plenty close if you get pregnant when she's a year Smile I found out I was pregnant with DD2 when DD1 was 13 months and found out with DS2 when DS1 was 12 months....they are 20-21 months apart (I did go early with all my kids, but they would've been less than 2 years apart no matter what). I can't imagine them being much closer together, they are still such babies themselves until they are at least 2.

Ugh. So I've been not very good at taking my pill this last week, and of course Saturday was DH's birthday. *sigh* For about a week and a half now my body has been tricking me. I've been having "symptoms" but I'm trying not to freak out. I thought I was pregnant about this time with both of my boys, so it's normal for me to think I'm pregnant again with the baby being this age. Lol

OMG!!! So I mentioned I've got some symptoms, but that it's "NORMAL" when the baby is this age.. well, I just had one that is NOT normal. Blood tinged mucous. With the boys I didn't get my cycle back until they were 8 months old.... I'm praying that it's AF and not pregnancy........... :eek:

It seems to be wearing off a little for me Smile I remember going through baby fever fairly early with Ryder too, and then it passed for a bunch of months. My hubs said we should just have another one now, so we can get the non-sleeping out of the way. I laughed and told him, 'its easy for you...you don't have to carry a baby for 9 months'
