Hi ladies. I'm Kelly, married to Mike, and have a wonderful DS Ryan who is 21 mos. Long story short, I would really like to have another baby, but am scared to try again. It took us 3 1/2 years to conceive Ryan (failed IUIs, Clomid failed, endometriosis, surgery). We got pregnant on our own after all that!! I suffered horrible PPD for 6 months after Ryan was born and it was the darkest time of my life. I am so scared that will happen again. We have such a great routine now and I feel like our lives are getting back to "normal" now that he's getting older. I love him at this age.
I don't want him to be an only child, nor do I want him to be spaced far apart from his sibling (we only want 1 more child). We are thinking about TTC this summer, but I am not sure yet. We have a small house and don't know where we'd put another baby. The room I am in now would be the new baby's room, but where would we put all the stuff in here now?? AHH!! Lots to consider. I am a SAHM and have been since Ryan was born. It was not an easy adjustment, but I love it now. I was a teacher for 9 years before he was born. Money is tight and we are doing fine right now, but I am not sure how another baby would impact us financially right now. I just don't know what to do right now.
Please pray for us if you're a praying person. I look forward to getting to know you all better!
