WTT #3... maybe?
Hi, My name is Lindsey. I have a 3 year old son, Mason born 2/7/07 and also a 1 year old son, Tanner born 4/23/09. Originally I had wanted three kiddos close in age. We had our boys 2 years apart, and planned to do the same with the third baby. Well, after DS2 was born, I suffered from PPD and Anxiety really bad, and also sprained my back pretty badly. Needless to say, I was a mess! I am just starting to feel better now, but am not anywhere near feeling like I'm ready to put my body through another pregnancy/delivery. I have not given up hope yet for that third baby, especially since I hope to have a girl someday!! :) I am thinking that we may possibly try again starting in December 2011. Does this seem like a really big age gap between the third and my boys? It is much bigger then we had planned, but not only did I suffer after my son's birth, but he is still a VERY difficult child. He had reflux/ colic and is still extremely fussy and hard to deal with. I would also like to have Tanner potty trained so that I don't have two in diapers again. That was rough! :) Have any of you suffered from PPD and went on to have another child? I am terrified of having it happen again, and am still weaning myself off of the medication now. Any advice or anything you can share with me would be great!
