So I think I’m getting baby fever again and if my Fiance heard me say that he’d probably kill me! We are a blended family, I have 2 kids from a previous marriage, he has 1 from a previous marriage, and we have one together. ALL BOYS!!! They range in ages from 21 months – 7 years old. I’m still fairly young, only 30, and my friends seem to be having kids all around me. When I see their pictures I have to admit I get jealous, I love being pregnant and having a little baby! And, I think there is a part of me now that wants a little girl, which may be why I’m getting the itch! My Fiance and I are getting married in December and both of us are in school. I know it’s not the right time, but honestly is it ever? I doubt I could ever get him to agree to it since 4 kids is more than her ever planned on having, so I think I’m using this post as a way to vent and see how many others were ever in a similar position as me. Who wanted another baby after they thought they were done? Did you have one? Was it planned? And any advice or comments you would like to give me is always appreciated!

I’m still working on my first, so I can’t speak from the multiple kids perspective, but I do have one suggestion. Seriously consider how you would feel if you had another boy. Imagine the 20 week ultrasound, finding out it’s a boy. Is that still the future you would want?

Nope. We considered one and done, but decided on a second. We thought we were finished at that point and we were! They’re 18 and 16 now and I’m happy with our decisions. Weather a puberty or two before succumbing to baby fever, because while babyhood is 1-2 years of cuteness, adolescence is a decade of tribulation.

I love my boys very much, and don’t think I would be too disappointed if I had another boy but I know that the more testosterone in my house the harder it would be! Boys are so competitive!
I am glad to hear from a Mom’s perspective who has older kids! I’m sure I will be grateful I don’t have more in a few short years when I have teenagers!

I had our first kid and was convinced that I was done. I told my husband no more. But she’s a year old now, and I’m kind of itching to have that second kid…even one around me is pregnant and having babies, and while I have some heavy duty birth control, I’m still wanting another one. I’ve even picked out names! We’re not even trying for another kid. But yes I can relate to how you’re feeling.
