Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

Hi, everyone!

I think I might be going crazy. I have a (very clingy) almost 7 month old son whom I love and adore. I have my hands full just being a mommy to him right now, and I still want to enjoy him while he's little. <3

Only problem is, I swoon every time I see little newborn diapers and clothes and can't seem to stop reminiscing about when he was first born (his little head bobbing up and down while doing the breast crawl, have that tiny, weak little cry and having him sleep about 90% of the time). I can't stop thinking about whenever we might have baby #2 (AF hasn't returned yet, so it's not going to be anytime soon) how I want to start using cloth from day 1 (and why I'm stalking the Lil Joey threads, hehehe). We want to space them about 2 or 3 years apart if possible, so I'm not looking to get pregnant right away. I'm just... *sigh* I dunno. Whatever I am, should I be?

Anyone else with me or can talk some sense into me to convince me not to buy a newborn stash for hypothetical baby #2?

Re: Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

I'm having baby fever as well, and it is at a really inconvenient time. I'm going back to school this Fall and hoping to push hard and get done by 2015. I was hoping to hold off on having more kids until I'm done but the last month or so I am really wanting another baby! I didn't like my pregnancies but I have been really wanting to be pregnant again as well. DS is almost 3 and DD is 17 months and I am loving not having a tiny baby to worry about but I still want one! What is wrong with me!? I'm never going to finish school if this keeps up lol. To top it off, my period was due yesterday and still no sign of it. I had a negative pregnancy test this morning so I don't know what the heck is going on.

I conceived DD when DS was 7-8 months old so if you do get pregnant soon, it really isn't that bad having 2 that close together! I would wait on the newbie stash though...it'll be so much more fun when you know what you are having! I was tempted to get some before I knew I was having a girl but would just get frustrated seeing all the super cute gender specific prints knowing I couldn't get those yet.

I'm no help. I had 4 in 4 years and have baby fever. TTC isn't working so far.

My youngest is almost 5 and I have newborn fever BAD. I just got to hold a 6 day old yesterday and uterus was aching the whole time. I guess it may be worse for me because I don't think we'll be having any more kids.

Re: Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

My baby is 7 months too and EVERYONE is pregnant. This happened before when we were struggling to conceive. At least this time I don't bawl my eyes out at home after the bajillenth person announces their pregnant. It does make me want to be pregnant too. Only I was seriously ill with morning sickness for this baby so I worry that I won't be able to take care of my daughter. And she's still EBF and my cycles aren't back so I don't think it'll happen anytime soon, but I'm not preventing, just in case.

If it makes you feel any better, my 1st pregnancy I had no morning sickness at all, just nausea. This pregnancy I lost a lot of weight from morning sickness in the first tri. They can be polar opposites!

That does make me feel better. I pray every day for more children and to not be that sick.

I guess that is what I have been feeling, I've been talking about having another baby but we wanted to wait awhile. It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world though..
