Is this normal?....

Today I have had such an ache for another baby. What is wrong with me? I have the sweetest baby right here that I cannot even keep up with.
I can't shake it though. It's that whole body ache that comes from so deep in my soul.
I think a lot of it has to do with several friends who were pregnant when I was...announcing they are pregnant again. And several close friends about to deliver their first.
I hate to say it, but I feel so jealous? Why? I have a baby. I LOVE him. I can barely keep my head on with just one, but it has been just tugging at my heart all day long.
Is this normal?


  1. Yes very normal. I had hard pregnancies, bedrest on both. I had my tubes tied because another pregnancy would be dangerous. My little guy is now six months old. The other day I saw a newborn and almost started crying - weird maternal instincts. ;)


  2. Yes, yes, yes. :) I was in the same place you are when Caleb was about six months old. It's weird!

  3. :-D of course, silly, why do you think we're all having more? It's not because our firsts (or seconds lol) were easy or that we don't have our hands full enough already -- its because we are so in love with our little ones we just want some more!

  4. I have felt the same way this past month, even knowing that I had a hard recovery from both of my deliveries. I said that we are spacing ours 3 years apart, but yet James is only 9 months, and I'm already feeling like I want another one! But I really do want to enjoy him while I'm not so sick and tired from being pregnant again...I just have to remind myself how awful I felt being pregnant and all the loss of sleep, etc. But yeah, I definitely think it's something built into us as women to want lots of babies!


I love comments so leave one:-)
