baby, baby, baby

I REALLY want to have another baby. But now just isn't the right time. We're moving back to Utah in September, then my husband will be off doing military training for 6 months after that. I hate this feeling. It makes me think of all the ladies out there who are unable to have children. If I'm this sad about waiting 1 year to have a baby I can't even imagine what it must feel like when there is no chance of giving birth to children of your own.

Maybe I should get a puppy.

My husband and I knew after our son that we wanted another but we weren't quite ready. We had a plan to try in about four months or so.. but well one night of not planning and 9 months later we had a daughter, and you know even though she was born earlier than WE wanted, it really turned out to be the best and just right.
Things will work out.

I can honestly say that after three kids, I knew completely that I never wanted another baby again. I was done. I've never regretted that. In the brief moments when I thought about having another kid, all I had to do was watch someone else's baby for a couple hours to know that I made my decision. My husband, on the other hand, sort of wants another baby. Sorry, but he's not getting one! :)

I only have two reasons for not wanting to have a baby right now 1) I want to be fit before I get pregnant again 2) I don't want to be taking care of three kids 24/7 by myself.

My husband will be in training out of state until April 2010. We also just got word that his unit will be deploying to Afghanistan in August 2010. I can't wait another two years before I get the chance to get pregnant, so if he does end up getting deployed I think I might decided to get pregnant even though he'll be gone for a year. I'll be living across the street from my mom so I think it will be doable.

I'm with you though Amanda. I think after I have my third child I'll be done.

It doesn't help that I didn't have a chance to get fit again between kids, having the three of them in less than 3.5 years. That sort of sapped me, and I've never been able to get back into shape. :(

Hey thanks for stopping by, glad you liked my blog! Awesome!

I want another baby too, but not yet. I know this sounds horrible, I just don't want to be pregnant! I don't think I'm ready for the whole barfing, staying up all night, all that, it makes me feel crazy just thinking about it!

Yes, get a puppy! haha

Melinda--I totally hear you on the pregnancy sickness. With my first it was horrible. I lost 25 lbs because I was throwing up ALL THE TIME. (The silver lining is that I only weight I gained was the weight that I'd lost) With my second I only got sick in the first trimester so I can't complain too much. I just try not to think about all the sickness!

I want another baby and we are waiting too because we need to wait for open enrollment for my husband's insurance. I feel the same way, I always think about the women who can't have babies. My sister has problems and might not ever be able to have babies and it makes me sad.
