Another child?

Recommended Posts

I'm undecided. My feral period came back, after almost 5 years of pregnancy and breastfeeding keeping it at bay, and it hurt like buggery. As much as labour did. My baby is 16mo. Logically, I should be done. DH desperately wants another one. I'm on the fence. Any of you ladies have a crystal ball and oceans of wisdom for me?

How many kids do you currently have? I kind of figure if you're on the fence then go for it, but I'm not the one that has to raise baby lol.

Yeah why not then, maybe sit on it for another couple of months before making the decision, or make a pros and cons list.

Maybe try Naprogesic for a few months?

 

It works pretty well for me and is a little less drastic approach to managing period pain. :yes:

I would go to your GP and ask for Ponstan and some endone if it is really bad, That is what I have had to have and it really lessened the pain.

Id wait until the youngest is around 2 and see if you still want another

I have 4 children ages 10, 8, 6 and 18 months. We won't be having anymore and feel very blessed to have our 4. I find it very busy with 4, homework, school, sports etc. and spending special time with each one can be tricky. I feel if I had any more I couldn't do that. One child does have a slight learning difficulty so I do have to spend extra time with him.

Good luck with your decision.

Kadoodle, I could have written your post. Mine are 12, 10, 8, 4 and 3 years.....

 

I am on the fence. DH wants another. Ive just turned 42, i think my eggs are gone :(

 

I am just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, do I or don't I. For you it depends if time is on your side. If it is then I say go for it.

 

Unfortunately mother nature is making the decision for me, oh and lack of BD due to kids everywhere all the time ha ha ha
