When you have baby on the brain...

Anyone been in this boat?

Logical side of the brain says: Not a good time. Too much other stuff going on. Not enough money. Not enough room. You were done at 2 remember??

Emotional side of the brain says: Awwwwwww a baby!!!!!

Yep-I'm there... We're waiting until this Summer to try for #3..I'd love to do it now-but everything practical says we need to wait.

Re: When you have baby on the brain...

I am right there with you. Except we are DONE at 2. Nothing permanent has been done but DH and I have decided that two is plenty for our family.

We don't have the space for a third (its a 3 bedroom house and DH works from home so really, its a 2 bedroom house and the girls are already squished in their bedroom). We want our girls to go to a particular private school and we are barely able to afford to send two, there is no way we could afford to send 3 (lame reason but a reason nonetheless). Pregnancy does not really agree with me and we don't want to risk repeating the issues I had with the first two. We cannot afford adoption. Our second daughter has been a very high maintenance child and neither of us think we could emotionally handle another one like her (if we knew baby #3 would be like our first, it wouldn't be an issue).

So my head has plenty of reasons for us to be done done done. But my heart just aches for another baby. Feeling the tiny bundle in my arms, listening to the tiny baby breaths when they are asleep, hearing the itty bitty squeaks when they are awake, seeing the newborn fluffy butts - just makes me really want another baby.

But alas - no more for me. Can totally empathize.

Go for it. We said all that and then slipped up pregnant with #3, and let me tell you that little man is the BEST MISTAKE I EVER MADE!!!!!!!! I know you aren't talking about an "oops" but just saying how wonderful a #3 could be.

I want a #4 but there are a few physical issues going on with me.

Re: When you have baby on the brain...

We have all those same logical reasons to stop at 2 as well. Plus, I just had #2 in Dec. Already I am lamenting that he is outgrowing his newborn clothes and fluff. I just can't give away my DDs clothes either, just in case (even though I know it probably wont happen) sigh....

Re: When you have baby on the brain...

Just had my first in back in August...I'm so ready for #2....when I have baby on the brain..it stays till I get one! I want another one! Even though she is still small...she isn't a tiny newborn anymore and it saddens me looking at all her clothes she can't fit into anymore.
