Broody, Jealous, Both or Neither

Broody, Jealous, Both or Neither

Do i want another baby?!

Maybe. Possibly. I don’t know!

I have times where I’d love another little person to love

And then i think about how hard it’d be, having two

Then i think, do it sooner rather than later, get the lack of sleep, the nappies, the weaning out the way ASAP

And then i think of how hard that’d be logistically.

Would i even get pregnant again? Would it be as terrifying as last time?

Would the baby be healthy?!!!

Can i put Mr Me and my family through that?

I’m jealous of a bump, i miss the feeling of a baby moving, i miss feeling special, i miss growing life.

I don’t miss not being able to turn over, or being so big i can barely move, or having swollen feet/ankles/hands

Logistically, how do you food shop with a newborn and toddler? How do you attend groups with a babe in arms and (hopefully) one on the move? (Little T is still pretty stationary for now, and toothless i might add)

How would we raise the capital for IVF and then pay for a baby on one wage?

Will Little T be lonely as an only child? Am i thinking about a second because it seems like that’s the socially acceptable thing to do?

When people go into labour, i envy them. Despite it being the most painful thing EVER and the recovery being horrendous, the memory is becoming a sweet one, i see now how women convince themselves it wasn’t as bad as they thought.

I like having spare bedrooms, and i worry the kids would fight endlessly and i wouldn’t cope.

But i think about having another daily. Sometimes i think it’d be great, other days i have a near on panic attack.

Is there a good age gap? Is going from 1 to 2 as hard as they say?

How do you KNOW you want another?


Love, Little Miss PMA xxx

  1. Not a lot of advice here on time gap etc lol but as ridiculously complicates logistics are with three of the same age it’s becoming more and more obvious that interaction between makes it worth it for me. Not that we had much of a choice. It’s all relative you see… When you only know 3, the thought of 2 or 1 is like: eaaaasy lol logistics always find a way to you when you have to adjust. I suppose with time it’ll be clearer to you. BTW your boy is such a cutie! Don’t worry about moving and teeth. Mine are 11 months and two move around by sliding their bum on the floor and only one has shown a tooth.

    1. Ha Little T seems to have front teeth coming through but they may receed again!!!
      As for crawling, i dont think hes far off but im happy for him to wait until after weve been on holiday in May

      Youre right, you get used to your particular situation, so id manage 2 if the situation arose.

      I just need to be sure, which will take time, see how i feel this time next year i think xx
