Wanting another....is it normal!?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Wanting another....is it normal!?

Postby littlebug » Tue Nov 24, 2009 6:01 pm

So 2 of my friends had babies in the last 2 days and I am reeeeaaallly feeling like I want another! Just a couple of weeks ago I was sure we weren't having any more, but I feel completely sad to the point of tears at the thought of no more babies. My husband is adamant he wants no more. Is this just the hormones regulating after birth or what?!!!! I was kind of happy we wouldn't have to TTC again!

I think it's completely normal to want more children. However, I would not worry about the wanting so much. You have a beautiful little one to care for right now. And unless you all had previously discussed it prior to pregnancy, don't rule out having another just yet. Give yourselves some more time. Just be careful and in a few months to a year, talk about the baby thing again. Maybe DH will feel different or even you for that matter. :)

I completely know where you're coming from on this one :)!! I gave birth last December and for the past two months I have started getting the "urge" again....once you start getting that it's so hard to put to the back of your mind...even though I get super ill when I'm pregnant, even though I've just started a 3yr Social Work degree, even though it would be financially impratical right now - I WANT ONE!!!!!

My DH freaks at the mere mention of the word pregnancy and says we HAVE to wait three years til I finish University...I know that makes perfect sense. Both my children will be in school then and I won;t have to worry about them whilst I'm throwing up or in hospital sick with my pregnancy.

Even knowing all these things, if I found out I was pregnant tomorrow I'd be ecstatic :) Rationality and logic fly out the window when the "urge" sets in.

As for your DH, mine is adamant no more after the third we'll try for in three years.....but I'm desperate for four children.....so i'm working on him from now ;) (if im lucky enough to be able to have more children).

Good luck with whatever you decide....I think what you're describing is perfectly normal though! xxxxx

I feel the same. Dh is sure he wants no more and at times i don't want no more too lol but i do imagine wanting more now and then and the whole pregnancy experience all over again and hopfully not a high risk preg!

Normal! I had been crying this past week as I felt like my pregnancy flew by. I also cried after DD was born three years ago. We had discussed that our DS would be our last but to think that I will never be able to experience this again makes me very sad. I think part of this is the hormones. Despite the GD that I had this time around, I truly miss being pregnant.

Ahh, well I still really want another ;) But in reality I know it is not right for us anytime soon. DH did say if we were to have another, it wouldn't be for a couple more years, so it isn't completely out of the question I guess :o

DH told me the other day that he feels like he would be happy with one. I burst into tears! I had a really hard pregnancy and I'm already sad that I can't do this all a thousand times! I think a lot of it's hormones. Give it some time and see where you are in a year or two. If you really really want another, I think that's something you would need to have a serious convo with DH about.

Completely normal!

DH and I want more, but DH doesn't want it anytime soon. I went to the mall today and saw lots of preggos and cute maternity shirts and got a little sad. He knows I'm missing having a baby in my belly.
