So I've been going through something pretty challenging lately. I've decided I want to share. Maybe ya'll can give me some encouragement or maybe one of ya'll have been in my shoes before and can help me out.
So here goes...
I have baby fever!!
Like really bad! I've cried and comtemplated, comprimised with my hubby...the works! I've had it for a while now but its recently gotten a lot worse. Almost all of my friends are pregnant, just found out, or are trying to get pregnant. Literally almost every day this week I have found about about someone new being pregnant. So now I have the fever while everyone else has the baby. Its so hard! The last person I found out was pregnant, I burst into tears! LOL. I'm losing it!
The problem is, besides hubby not being ready, truly I am not either. I will be finished with school in June 2011. I have been working on this degree since 2005! (with a few breaks of course). So thats a really big accomplishment I'd like to get out of the way. We have a small car. Like VERY small two door Honda Accord. By the beginning of next year , we are hoping to get a bigger one , but not before then. So that's another reason we need to wait. We could definately not fit two carseats in the car we have now.
Our original plan was I'd go off the birth control when Noah turned 2 in April. It's a good plan, but I feel like I just can't wait that long. Hubby says we can start trying in a month or 2 if I really want to, which I do, but I just don't know if thats truly the right time for us. I mean it would definately work, but are we going to be truly ready? Know what I mean?
Ugh I hate the baby fever!! So many decisions and choices! How did you decide when you were ready for baby #2? Were there any obsticals that needed to be overcome before you started trying? Are you glad you waited until you did or wish you'd have waited longer, or started trying sooner?? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!!
