The one where I decide to have more kids. Based on blogs. And then I take it back. Or not.
Omigoodness…Cute, cute, little babies! I can see why you would want another one…however, I can very much relate to your going back and forth on that decision…
...and “wang” is HILARIOUS. LOL!

Any way you go, the wang is going to come out sooner rather than later!

Hahaha… Dh and I had a plan too. Except I’m due in a few weeks instead of in the fall. At least I won’t be pregnant during the summer when we only have a/c in the bedrooms. Our reproductive parts have minds of their own.
And keep in mind, with homeschooling, you don’t always *have* to get up at 6/7am, and can make naptime/quiet time part of the afternoon. Ds currently wakes up around 10-11am, which I’ve got no problem with.

The way I figure it, why lose all that weight to become hot just to ruin it with pregnancy and pregnancy pounds to have to work AGAIN at losing the baby weight for hotness. Get all the baby making over, get the baby pounds over with and then work on PERMANENT hotness
And homeschooling, y’all are nuts

Come on - have another so I get out of this ‘I WANT ANOTHER but your doesn’t work anymore’ rut. Seriously, there is too much cuteness around!
I agree - why do all that work and then get knocked up again. Have another, and another, and another (HAHAHA!) then become the MILF you want to be! (Ok maybe that is stretching it but ya know!)

I think you would be one hot pregnant momma!! Get his wang home. Your too funny. Who knows, maybe you’ll have twins and never nap again.

We got pregnant within ONE MONTH with Amelia and I was like WHOA. Wang bang thank you ma’am. As friends told me…if you wait until you are ready to have another baby you’ll never have one! LMAO on Frisbeefetus.

I think you’ll work it out. Just do it already. Man what’s all this intellectualizing about? Don’t you just get pregnant accidentally like the rest of us?
By candice on 2006 04 07
Yea, Candice. Her name is LB.

LOL at all these comments! *sigh* How DO you know when the time is right for Baby #2?
By Amy on 2006 04 07
I planned my baby around the fact that I always wanted a birthday that happened during the school year so the months of July and August were out. Also, I had an unreasonable hatred of having the idea of having a baby in July or August. Somehow being quite pregnant in July or August seemed totally doable though. Also, having done the over-thinking thing when musing about #1, I am a strong suporter of arbitrary date baby starting. Get your husband to plan a vacation to anywhere- that’s when you start trying. Alternatively, pick a month you like for any reason, shoot for that month. I liked October, we got a little overeager an wound up with September but, eh, it was done, you know?

Just take the plunge! I promise you will not regret it. I was so scared about having two, and it has been so great. Although Keat is still in that super tired newborn stage. He does keep us up all night too. But oh my god he is the cutest most precious thing EVER!
We planned Keat around having two insurances so he’d be free. Also I was working hard on weight loss, and I was like “why”? Cause at the time we had planned for me to get pregnant in Dec 2005. So I decided just to ruin my body a little more and then get hot afterwards.
You are totally going to dig being the mom of two. I promise you that!
By Rachael on 2006 04 08
Ahhh, Rach!! Sweetness. I’m so happy for you!! And I’m THRILLED you’re doing so well. Gives me hope for C-Sect #2.
By Mrs. Flinger on 2006 04 08
Oh this C-section was a sinch. I actually thought it was cool to feel all the tugging and what not. The pain was bad, don’t get me wrong. It was managable and by day 3 I was pretty much feeling just bruised. I am not having to take too much pain meds now either.
The best part was being in L&D and not having to wait for the baby. I knew that at noon I would be wheeled in to have him. Sooo much nicer then laboring for 24 hours. I am sure you’ll like it a lot more!
By Rachael on 2006 04 08
I want another baby too. So not gonna happen as the mr. got snipped when # 2 was 2 weeks old. I think he tricked me into it, now I have to trick him into reversing it
By kbkb on 2006 04 08
Stickin’ my nosey self back in to say I had a scheduled c-section with Amelia (baby #2) and it was SO much easier recovery wise than laboring with Caitlin, pushing for 2 1/2 hours, and then having an emergency c-section and feeling like I’d been hit by a semi.
By Jamie on 2006 04 09
The time is right when you get 2 pink lines after you pee on a stick.
A friend of mine had a repeat (scheduled this time though) c-section in the fall, and she said the second was *way* easier - both emotionally and physically - than her first. As long as you’ve got a doctor you like and trust you should be good.
By lanna on 2006 04 09
Both of c-sections weren’t bad. The second one was better though because my body had been through the routine before, so it wasn’t such a shock to the system, I think. However, because I did feel better after the second (it took about a week for me to really walk up right and take big steps after Eli and it only took about 2 days after Anna) I did too much and opened a tiny part of my incision. Nothing bad, just took a little bit longer for that part to scab up and close.

We’ve been looking at some early video footage… definitely makes the ovaries twitch.
Good luck Leslie!! You’re too funny, hon.
By Marie on 2006 04 09
