    Just because you find your child/children an inconvenience or you don't want to make some financial sacrifices in order to have more kids doesn't mean that it's wrong for me to do or want that
    LOL I always get the 'just wait until you have one' comment! In my opinion I would love to be blessed with a big family. If we are then we will make sacrifices as we see fit - it will be very hard work for the first however many years but as your children get older you will reap the rewards. Now i'm going to have my judgemental say.....If druggies and people that live in commission housing and don't work can have 4,5 children, then so can I...hope that didn't offend anyone...eeekkks!!!

    I too want a few children, but am happy with our first little miracle at the moment. Will wait and see what happens after our little girl is born.

    I was just going to say the samething, my hairdresser fell pregnant with her 2nd only 2 months after her first and she was still BFing, she didn't find out she was pregnant with her 2nd till 9 weeks cause she didn't even think of it...

    I also have a friend who got her AF while she was BFing... so anything is possible!

    My OB told us 6 months after bub is born to just start trying, you never know... I think its an ego things with doc's they are think they know what is best...

    Yes well one of my girlfriends is the same - she fell pregnant with number two about 6 weeks after her first was born - whilst breastfeeding. I guess it's something that we'll talk to doc about later, we'll just concentrate on this little one for now! In my mind I'd like to BF as long as possible, but also wanting to get on to number two as soon as I recover from birth from # 1 lol

    I am honestly just going to see how I go with BFing and the first... I am hoping to have 3 kids before 35... but will see how we go with number one... I might have 1 and then change my mind and leave it at that, who knows!!

    i BF for 7 months and am so proud of that!
    We had a HORRIBLE time! Im just praying that the second one is easier than my first cause ill give up sooner I think. At least I know what I'm in for. No one told me the first time that it could be hard!!
    I too have had the 'just wait till the first one arrives, then tell me how many you want'
    Now its all ' you have no idea what 2 is going to do to you!!!'
    I love how people are so encouraging....

    It's all happening this week, I've finally popped a little and have been feeling the baby move for the last three days. I felt one kick but more rolling around. My husband is waiting so patiently to feel the baby, I don't think he/she big enough for him to feel yet. He was so sweet a few nights ago he sang the baby a lullaby

    Now i need to telephone the genetic counsellor and get her to send the sex of the baby in a card!

    Oh the target sale is so cheap!

    Its so cool feeling the baby move, but now its also a little scary as when i dont feel it for a while i worry such a worrier! But it has helped me bond a lot more being able to feel the little person inside of me!

    All the ladies at work have been telling me horror stories about how they were told they were having girls and then it popped out a boy! Only 10 ladies work here and this happened to 2 of them!!!

    I think ill get the 4D scan to tripple check

    1 more week and we will find out what team we are on!
