I love that my oldest can help with the baby! It makes it so much easier. He can hold him and play with him, keeping him content, while I cook dinner or take a quick shower. It's a total lifesaver!

Yeah plus i kinda felt bigger even though she was the smallest. My hips were constantly giving me trouble, and popping in and our of place, i couldn't sleep at night no matter what i did, when i'd try to get up and walk i felt like i was going to fall over, i had a few scares with pre-e, my feet were swollen the whole time, and if i got on the floor it took me forever to try and get up, plus i couldn't bend over.

Same! I was constantly worried about pre-e. My blood pressure would get so high. But it's been that way since I had a molar pregnancy in April 2011, so who knows the cause. It's still high.

yeah that would be so awesome! i was 12 when my mom had my little sister and I really enjoyed the "excitement" of finding out my mom was pregnant the same time she did, and going and picking out baby stuff and finding out if it was a brother or sister and everything. granted things didnt go as plan since she was born at 24 weeks. but it was still joyful being a big sister. when she fnally came home, and even when she was on oxygen, id get up with her in the mornings and feed her her bottle of my moms pumped milk and change her diapers and everything. Id love it if my girls were around that age too. but then again, would I want to start all over?? lol idk, i just want to get somet things done in my life first. If i happen to get pregnatn, not the end of the world, just postponing things yet again.

DH won't get a vasectomy :roll: but i like that my kids help around as much as they can and they adore monkey. I had pretty bad morning sickness with my first (lasted my whole pregnancy) but besides that i had no real problems. With my first DD i honestly had no problems, that pregnancy was just so easy and then with my other DD i had morning sickness, couldn't gain weight, my hips were constantly hurting, i couldn't walk a lot of the time etc. DH saw how miserable i was, and he told me constantly he felt bad for me so he'd try to rub my back, feet and legs when he'd get a chance.

I wanted to name Colin that SO badly, but DH didn't like the name.
Party pooper. :(

My kids are constantly asking to hold the baby, fighting over who gets diapers, wipes etc. I remember when my mom brought my kids to the hospital and DS walked in the room and we pointed to the baby and he goes " that's yours?" we busted out laughing and told him yes that it was his sister, the baby that was kicking mommy. :lol:

I am totally in the same dilemma. I love the experience of pregnancy and childbirth. I hate thinking about not experiencing it again- it almost seems unbearable not to. BUT, I don't want to postpone our plans and dreams. I need to finish college and focus on my career.. not on babies. We want to travel with the kids, and with another baby that would be put off yet again. It's hard enough to do things with three kids... how would it be with four? Just going out to eat is HELLO-expensive. However, we are moving soon into a 4-bedroom house. The extra space makes it tempting to have another. I just worry that down the road, when we are older and the kids are all in school that we will miss having a baby.

Thanks, yours are cuties, too. But I've seen them many times before on here. Probably being that our oldest kids are both Jan 2008 babies.

Mine was semi high compared to what it normally is, then not to mention i always measured ahead after like 24-25 weeks. I was measuring 3-4 weeks ahead and at first they were worried i had to much fluid which freaked me out. They were also convinced i was going to have GD but i didn't, then they didn't want me having a big baby( not for sure why) but i did anyways.

How big?
My last two were weird... both times my water broke at 37 weeks and I had to be induced. This last one was a horrible experience, though. My first labor was 9 hours, my second was 6... and this last one was 34 hours after my water broke (30 hours after induction). It came really close to a c-section.

My first was 9lbs 9 3/4 oz, my second was 9lbs 8 3/4 oz and then my third was 9lbs 3oz.
