You know how it is. You fall in love, get married, have a baby, then the questions start. When are you having number two? Are you going to try for a girl/boy, etc., etc.?
And yet, after having just had baby #2, the questions have already begun.
It's ok. Honestly, I don't really mind. However, I can't really give you a "for sure" answer. If you would ask E, we're done. There will be no more babies, zip/zilch/nada. Why? He loves having a boy and girl. He loves the kiddos we have. The world is made for a family of four. And on some level...I agree.
However, (you knew that was coming, didn't you?) I'm having issues saying "Yes, we're done." Why? I honestly can't tell you. Maybe it's because I'm a female, maybe it's because saying we're done makes me feel old, maybe it's because there are some days I already miss being pregnant. Maybe I'd like to have just one more (I'm not a fan of odd numbers, although, I'm not sure that's a good reason to have another baby). And if I'm being really honest, I'd like one more chance to breastfeed from the start (more about this in a later post), I'd like one more chance at not gaining a ton of weight, and I'd like one more pregnancy because I just love the two I have like crazy.
Sometimes I feel like we're just not done....then again, on those sleepless nights with a crying baby when I can't remember the last time I showered, I wonder why I would ever think about having another one. I can't wait to lose the baby weight, I can't wait to have my body back, I'm looking forward to a baby that sleeps through the night (and not technically sleeping through the night of five hours, I'm talking the solid 12 hours sleeping through the night...lol), I'm looking forward to vacations with kids that are little bit older, and no diaper laundry or disposables.
Grrrr....I don't know.
So for now, I don't really have a good answer. In all honesty, we're likely done, but saying so is so final for me. With an IUD in place (Paragard), we're not entertaining the idea any time soon.
So there, I totally cleared that up for you, right? ;)
