I’m a full time Mum to a beautiful 6 month old. Until now I have been absolutely against having another baby. My first pregnancy was complicated as was my labour.
I watched my daughter lovingly look into the eyes of a friend’s 2 year old the other day and it’s making me think that I don’t want her to grow up alone without a sibling.
I’m really torn because there are SO many reasons for me not wanting another child but there are also valid reasons for wanting another one.
Falling pregnant with my daughter was planned but I put it off for a few years because I was scared. I eventually got to a point where I thought “I’m not going to magically wake up one day being 100% confident about having a baby” so it was kind of a “bugger it, I’ll just do it” situation. And I can’t imagine my life without my daughter.
So I guess my question is, is deciding to have baby number 2 kind of the same scenario? Or am I being an idiot in thinking that?November 24, 2016 at 10:01 pm #7218ChantelleParticipant

I was in the excact spot before I had my daughter. I had my son and was so terrified of having a secondi decided against it and went on with life as normal until my son turned 4 and I found out I was pregnant, my husband was ecstatic as he wanted more, I was not, scared, unsure all the way up until I had her. It’s been 8 months now and our whole family is the happiest we have ever been, my amazing daughter is the apple of my eye and I have never seen my son so gentle, kind and in love with his sister. Sorry it’s so long, I just keep thinking if I had a second, someone so unbelievably terrified of how hard it would be and thinking I couldn’t do it and did and are thriving, anyone can 🙂 good luck mummas xx
