10 Signs Mom’s Body Is Done Having Kids (And 5 Signs She’s Ready For More)

10 Signs Mom’s Body Is Done Having Kids (And 5 Signs She’s Ready For More)

Some women are born to be mothers and are meant to have a big family, other women are better off without kids. Some women want to have big families, but, due to things that are out of their control, can not. Having children can be an amazing experience, from pregnancy all the way through to raising them and being there for all of their firsts. Some women, however, are not as lucky and end up either having a horrible pregnancy, complications during delivery, or maybe just do not enjoy motherhood the way that they thought that they would.

There are many reasons that a mom might or might not be ready for more kids, and motherhood is not for everyone. Sometimes medical conditions can leave women unable to carry, or women can be emotionally scarred from their first delivery. It can be hard to tell exactly why a woman may or not want more kids and there are many explanations for it. So In this article we will go over what a regular or irregular period is, what uterine atony is, how having a c-section may affect a woman’s choice to get pregnant again, and much more.

This is an article on 10 signs that she’s not ready for more kids, and 5 signs that she is.

15 The Uterus Can No Longer Contract

The uterus losing its ability to contract is also known as, uterine atony, occurs after childbirth. If a woman develops uterine atony after giving birth, her uterus no longer contracts and this allows the blood vessels to bleed freely. Uterine atony is a dangerous and potentially life threatening condition. It can lead to bleeding a woman bleeding out. If a woman experiences this during childbirth it is likely that giving birth again will also be very dangerous because the uterus has lost muscle tone. The odds are that a woman who has had this happen will have to have a c-section the second time around, if she becomes pregnant again, to avoid any life threatening complications.This could make a woman not want to become pregnant again in fear for the fact that she could bleed out and die. It is understandable why this might make a woman not ready for more children.

14 There’s Problems With The Placenta

As mentioned before, motherhood is not for everyone. Some women seem to have been born for it, enjoying every second. While there are some mothers who hate every minute of it that goes by. If a woman has had a particularly hard time with raising her first child, or experienced postpartum depression, she more than likely does not want to have more children. Some women end up with postpartum depression, this is a deep depression that sets in shortly after baby is born, it can leave the new mom feeling unable to care of her child and that her life is pointless, however, with help from doctors, this can be overcome.Whether she thought she was going to like being a mom before giving birth, or got pregnant accidentally, it turned out it just was not meant to be for her, and she knows that it is best for her to keep it at one baby.

13 Aunt Flo Disappears

In order to become pregnant a woman needs to have a regular monthly cycle. If a woman is experiencing irregular periods, meaning periods that are way too long or missing periods, then this is a sign that she is not able to become pregnant at this time. If a woman misses her periods a lot then she may not be ovulating. Irregular periods are also a sign that a woman could be pre menopausal, and if this is the case then she definitely is not able to conceive. Menopause is when the ovaries stop producing hormones and typically sets in around ages 40-50. Another reason women might have irregular periods is because of underlying medical issues such as, PCOS, cancer, hormone imbalance, and there are many more. If a woman experiences any of these issues then she, her body, is not ready for more children at this time.

12 Damaging C-Sections

While this may not be an indicator for all women that they are not yet ready to have more kids, it can be a traumatic experience for some women, leaving them scared to go through it again. Having a C-section is sometimes absolutely necessary for the health and safety of both mother and baby, however the recovery can be much worse than it is when giving birth vaginally. A C-section, like a vaginal birth, takes about six weeks for recovery time. It is however, more painful, and when a woman has a C-section she is not able to immediately hold her baby. Some women end up needing emergency C-sections, which can be traumatic when the woman was not prepared for it at all. This can leave a mom feeling scared to have another baby, as women who get a C-section are likely to need one again the next time around.

11 Difficulty Surviving The Pregnancy

A miscarriage can really take a toll on a woman, It is very emotionally hard to deal with. Having multiple miscarriages, one after the other, can be devastating, it may leave women feeling as though something is wrong with them, and like they want to give up trying because they simply can not handle going through that again. More likely than not, if a woman experiences repeated miscarriages, it is usually caused by an underlying medical condition and could be a sign that her body just can not carry a child. This can leave women either feeling as if they weren’t meant to have kids, or if they already have a kid that they should just be happy that they have them.

10 The Body Finally Bounces Back

During pregnancy every woman puts on weight, some much more than others. For some women it can be very difficult to lose this weight after pregnancy, for others it sheds right off. If a woman struggled hard, but finally took off all of the baby weight and is finally feeling good about her body again, she may not be ready for more kids. A woman who is finally feeling good about her body probably does not want to become pregnant and put more weight on, understandably so. There are things women can do throughout pregnancy to avoid putting a lot of extra weight, but there is no real way to stop gaining all together. Of course this is not a sure sign that she may not be ready for more kids, but it can definitely play a role in her decision.

9 News Of Pregnancy Scares You

We have all had at least one pregnancy scare at some point in time, for some women it can be scary to learn that they are expecting when they were not ready for it, for other women it could be a pleasant surprise. If a woman experiences feelings of being scared, anxious, or depressed during a pregnancy scare, or upon finding out that she is pregnant then this is sure sign that she is not yet ready to have more children. Another way that this can be a sign that she is not ready for more kids is, if friends are announcing their pregnancies to her, and the thought of having babies frightens her then it is safe to say that she is not ready to become pregnant again.

8 Back-To-Back Babies

A lot of women want children and want to give their kids siblings to grow up with. But when mom has back-to-back pregnancies, it can pose many risks. Pregnancy is hard, both mentally and physically. A woman’s body undergoes many changes and there’s no doubt pregnancy is tough on the body, so can you imagine how much harder it is to have pregnancy that aren’t spaced apart? For one, it can increase a woman’s chance of placental complications with future pregnancies. But that’s not at all, a woman will have a higher chance of giving birth to a baby who is premature or has a low birth rate, according to reports. Lastly, a woman doesn’t have time to properly heal, down there for example, when she rushes through the pregnancies.

7 There’s Underlying Illnesses

There are many underlying causes that might make a woman not ready to have more children, or completely unable to conceive. One of these conditions is gestational diabetes, if a woman had gestational diabetes with her first pregnancy she is definitely likely to get it the second time around. Many women who end up with gestational diabetes do not want to got through it again because they hate having to constantly check their sugar levels, and give themselves shots. Another condition that may affect a woman’s choice to have kids is, anemia. Anemia can lead to women feeling weak, tired, and overall sick. These symptoms are usually a part of pregnancy anyways, but amplified when a woman has anemia. This could lead to a woman not wanting to have more children because she does not want to feel worn down for her entire pregnancy.

6 And Feelings Of Hate

As mentioned before, motherhood is not for everyone. Some women seem to have been born for it, enjoying every second. While there are some mothers who hate every minute of it that goes by. If a woman has had a particularly hard time with raising her first child, or experienced postpartum depression, she more than likely does not want to have more children. Some women end up with postpartum depression, this is a deep depression that sets in shortly after baby is born, it can leave the new mom feeling unable to care of her child and that her life is pointless, however, with help from doctors, this can be overcome.Whether she thought she was going to like being a mom before giving birth, or got pregnant accidentally, it turned out it just was not meant to be for her, and she knows that it is best for her to keep it at one baby.

5 Healthy Discharge

A woman’s vaginal discharge plays a surprisingly important role in whether or not a woman is ready to have another child. During certain times of month women’s discharge changes in both thickness and hue. A healthy discharge is can vary in both thickness and color, but is typically anywhere from clear in color to a milky white and thickness depends on whether or not she is ovulating. When a woman is ovulating she is supposed to have discharge that somewhat resembles that of an egg white. Most women who are trying to conceive will track their cycles to better know when the best time to get pregnant is, but this discharge is always the best indicator. When she has discharge resembling egg whites she is most likely to conceive and is definitely ready for another kid.

4 Aunt Flo Visits Regularly

We already discussed irregular periods, now let’s discuss what a regular period/cycle is, and what it means. A regular cycle is considered to be about 28 days long with a five to six day period. During a regular period women actually only lose about one to two tablespoons of blood, even though it seems to be much more than that. Having a regular period is a sure sign that a woman is ovulating normally and that her body is able to conceive and carry a child. It is said that it best to have sex either every day, or every other day when a woman is in the ovulatory phase of her cycle. If a woman has a regular cycle, and she is tracking it, then this could be a sign that she is ready to have another baby.

3 The Nose Smells More Than Usual

Do you smell something funny?

Don’t worry ladies, this doesn’t mean you’re pregnant… Instead, it might actually mean your body’s ovulating. Wait… what? For years, a woman’s increased sense of smell is, for the most part, always associated with pregnancy. In the movies, even, a woman who is pregnant realizes there’s a bun in the oven after noticing weird, gross, or peculiar smells. But, a woman’s nose can smell more than just pregnancy – it can also mean her body’s ovulating. All of sudden, her perfume, the smell of her shampoo, even the lunch she made the night before might smell stronger or more pungent than she remembered. What’s the reasoning behind this? It’s been said that a woman’s smell increases to help her select the best mate for procreation. Rawr.

2  The Body Is Healthy

Any woman can technically get pregnant, right? In theory yes, but it becomes much easier for a woman whose body weight falls in a healthy category. Women who are underweight or overweight might have a more difficult time getting the bun in the oven, and when the body has just the right amount of pounds packed, it makes for an even healthier start for conception. According to medical reports, a “healthy” mama-to-be will fall into a BMI range of “18.5 – 24.” When a woman is over, and even under, the ideal weight, it can impact when aunt flo decides to visit and even how her hormones fluctuates. When this happens, a woman will have a much harder time getting pregnant.

1 There’s Baby Fever

All women can relate to this one, we see a cute little baby we instantly just want to pick it and kiss and hug it. We then start to feel this incredible need to be pregnant again. Baby fever is most common to happen when a woman is ovulating because it can be her body’s way of saying that her biological clock is ticking and it is time to procreate. It is this irresistible urge to have another baby, sometimes even men can experience baby fever. If a woman has baby fever, she may be ready to have another child, although she probably should not go get pregnant every time she has baby fever, as it something that we will experience all of our lives.
