    Default Want another baby one day- am I nuts?

    Things have been really hard since having our 3rd child. For example.. I cant be in 3 places at once, I feel like one or two often seem to miss out in attention (particularly when my youngest was a newbie), I'm outnumbered, these months have been the hardest ever, I've often felt more stressed than ever so why do I feel like I want another baby?

    I can't explain it. DH is talking about the snip but I really don't want him to have it.

    I'm breastfeeding but have been feeling sick lately, took a test but bfn. The logical me says yes that's good but part of me was actually disappointed! Wtf... Am I nuts? There are days when I barely cope with 3 4 & under how would I cope with 4??

    Has anyone else ever had an urge to have another when really they 'should' be done?

    that's me with 2 children.

    I think it's hard to let go of your child rearing days. It's about accepting to move on to the next stage of our lives and getting older.

    Haha, this is me too! My 3rd is almost 9 months and so cute now, I've started thinking about another. But I have found 3 really hard at times, we don't all fit in our house as it is AND DH has had the snip! So no more for me, but doesn't stop me thinking about more.
