Seriously considering TTC again

Josie is 4 months old today. Mike and I are really considering trying for another baby. We love this little girl so much and she is so incredibly perfect... we want her to have a full, close sibling. At the same time, I am more worried than ever about all the high risks. Josie is so perfect I'm afraid to push our luck.

We have until November... if I concieve after November, I'd give birth when I'm 44 and I dont think I'm too keen on that.

Still thinking....

Aw. Thank you. I know if we had one more I'd be absolutely content. Between us we have brought 7 children into the world. My first son died of meningitis. He would be 22 this September. Then I have a 19 year old. Mike has an 18, 13, 10 and 7 year old. Then we have Josie. Since the next sibling is 7 years older than her, that's why we're thinking about another. :)

You're welcome! I'm sorry you lost your son. I cannot even imagine nor do I want to. I admire your strength.

In my limited experience, it has taken me a year to get my body back. Although my periods went back to normal relatively quickly, I dont think my body was ready for another pregnancy until a year had past. I know a lot of people have Irish twins, but try to prepare yourself that it might you longer than you'd think.

So not trying to be a wet rag, just want to make sure you don't give up before you make another beautiful baby.

Paula, I think it is great that you are wanting another child and I agree with PPs
