this is the question i ask myself daily. i had a difficult birth with my daughter and though she was an easy baby i was adamant one child was enough. it wasnt the birth so much that made me reach that decision. i had one healthy baby and she was all i needed. seeing friends of mine who had two or more children and watching their kids fighting put me off having a second even more!
my daughter will be three end of september. needless to say, she is not a baby anymore. and over the last few months i have started to think having a second is not such a bad idea. IF i were to have a second i would want to start trying now because i wouldnt want my kids too far apart. i see babies and i get so clucky. sometimes i decide 'tomorrow im going to get IUD removed and get this thing started!' but then i ask myself do i want another child or is it just human nature to want to reproduce once your other child(ren) reaches a certain age? the idea of having a second is really tugging at me...but is this something all women go through?!?
(am not asking if i should have another child or not btw...that monster decision is up to me lol)
