Excuse Me While I Panic,

So my Boyfriend casually drops into conversation that he thinks it’s time for another baby. Time to give The Kid a brother or a sister. I had a total goldfish moment. Eyes slightly buldging, mouth opening and closing and a blank, uncomprehending expression on my face.

He wants to go through the sleepless nights AGAIN? Through the teething and the runny nappies and the colic and the crying and the ear infections, nose infections, coughing, sleepless nights and crying and more crying AGAIN? He wants me to have morning sickness for five months, AGAIN? He wants to start over, from scratch, AGAIN?


Someone tell me why it’s a bad idea before my uterus and ovaries agree with him.

And no, don’t expect this picture to help you in thinking up reasons why not to have another one:

    wow! that’s big!! i’d do anything to hear those words coming outta G’s mouth but he’s 100% clear on No More Kids Ever (that includes adoption, which I would also consider).

    Then again you’re a lot younger than I which means you don’t have to rush anything.

    having said that lots of parents reckon get all the baby stuff done in a few years rather than returning to it later…

    so! watcha gonna do!!!?

    This is a difficult one. In my opinion, your Kid deserves a brother/sisster to be a mate with on the other side, I agree with you. Not only the morning sickness, colic, standing up in the freaking cold winter nights to feed baby and not even to mention the fact of more money just slips away, I have to agree with you, those things even scares me about having another one.

    Good luck about making a decision.

    Well, you know where I stand on having another one πŸ™‚

    I think it would be awesome for the Kid to have a sibling, and I speak from personal experience, I was an only child for 7 years before my brothers came along. I always wanted a sibling and it was lonely being the only one.

    But that’s just my thoughts. You have to do what is right for you and for your family!

  5. As an only child I’d say that there is nothing wrong with not having another Kid … BUT if you are planning on doing it again eventually probably a good idea to do it in the region of now so that the kids are vagually close in age.

    A friend of mine accidentally fell pregnant at 22 and now 10 years later is planning on another child and I think that the age gap is HUUUUGE!

    I’m sure you’ll have loads of fun during the experimentation process to determine whether you will indeed be able to fall pregnant again πŸ™‚

    Our baby slept right through for 2 nights in succession, so I also feel broody. Nothing like good sleep for the old sex drive and procreation instinct.

  13. Aliceinwonderland says:

    GO FOR IT!!!!! i think it’s time…. then again it’s not me having the kid….

  14. I am an only child and I sustain, no child should be an only one. I f now is the time, is another issue though – only you would know.

  15. Angel says:

    hmmm… how about no b/c you just don’t want to? unless, you actually do. in my case, i would love to, even doing it alone. but i’m not ready and neither is silly monkey. we like our “just the two of us” time. that said… going through everything with my mom and her cancer, had it just been me with no siblings to lean on and have help, i don’t think i could have done it. just some thoughts to nibble on.

  21. Tara says:

    Want the other side? πŸ˜›

    All these women are just so baby happy *fucking runs*

    Bru go with your gut, if you want to do it then go for it. If you don’t, then don’t. I mean I can think of a million reasons not to but those are just for me, most of them don’t apply to you mommy people πŸ˜›

    Dude – you know me. I’m allergic to babies…well yours is cute, you know what I mean. If you want to you should and if you don’t then you shouldn’t. Otherwise it’s just something you’ll resent deeeeeeeeeeeep down inside a little bit, you know?

    No harm in practicing though. πŸ˜‰

    I’m with you on that one, i am looooooooooooooving sleeping thru the night again. I can delay until we’re in better financial shape – i.e. not living month to month with no credit cards, but with actual money saved… But i can’t use no medical aid as an excuse anymore.

  30. dude i was an only child – it’s waaaay better. trust me. πŸ™‚ but i’m biased considering the only thing i plan on giving birth to after ava is another novel.
