Baby Fever already...I must be crazy! Holly Marie Read 1 child; Mississippi 346 posts

My little girl is 1 month old.
It took us 3 years to get pregnant with her and my pregnancy was HELL.
I had migraines that caused memory loss as well as heart problems.
We decided while I was pregnant that we wouldn't be trying again and even talked about tying my tubes--that God I couldn't go through with it.
Well, I'm already having baby fever.
I wanted to cry when she couldn't fit in her newborn clothes anymore.
I love being a mom SO much and I just want one more.
I talked my husband into trying again when my little girl turns 2...
I'm hoping it will be easier this time around and the babies can be close in age.
Honestly, if I didn't have health issues, I'd want to try again in a couple months.
Has anyone felt a strong need to TTC right after having a baby?
Are my hormones just making me delusional? lol
And what in the world do I do to try to keep my mind off of it for 2 years!?

I had baby fever from the literal second my daughter was born. I remember learning to nurse, when she was like...an hour old, asking my midwife when I could be cleared to try again.



It never went away so we started trying when she was 8 months old, but I was ebf'ing so it took 10 months. Now I have two and I have never been more done with anything in my life, lmao.



I hope everything goes perfectly the second time around and that you get your two babies! Time will fly :).

Glad to know I'm not crazy lol :)
Maybe I can talk my husband into trying at 1 year if I still feel like this!

It took us 2.5 years to get pregnant with our daughter. When I was pregnant we agreed to start TTC when LO was 3. About a month to a month and a half after my daughter was born I got bad baby fever. We ended up ditching the BC and let whatever happens happens. Here we are 2.5 years later still TTC!



You're not crazy though!

Hope you get a BFP soon!
That is one reason I would start TTC now if I could... I want them close in age so they can be close friends.
My sister is exactly 2 years younger than me and we were always close.
