I have a 6mo but I'm wanting another baby

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My husband and I have 3 kids 5, 2, and 6mo we definitely want another boy.. He wants to keep having kids till we finally have another boy.. I'm 24... my 6mo was born in March 2015 and I'm wanting to try for another one in January! I can't stop thinking about it.. I've become obsessed with wanting another baby.. not just any baby, a boy! And I want to be done having kids by the time I'm 30. Any advice on how kill baby fever?

Kill baby fever? You HAVE a baby! Why not focus on enjoying the infant you have instead of working to 'replace' her w/ another infant....?

I will never understand people that have baby fever while they have a baby at home...

I wouldn't care if it was a girl or a boy.. I just can't get over that my 2yo will be 3 soon and starting school and my Lil 6mo will be 1 soon.. and I just want a sweet baby.. my doctor said it's because I'm ovulating and the feeling will subside.. I definitely wanted to wait till my 6mo was potty trained to try for another baby but I have this overwhelming feeling of wanting a baby.. but I don't see anything wrong with wanting a boy.. I'd be just as happy with another lil girl.. lol

My advise is to look at why a boy. Make sure you are wanting another baby for the right reasons. You could have 20 kids, but end up with all girls. Will you and your husband be ok with that? If the answer is no then it is not fair to your kids to have another. If the desire is so strong for having both girls and boys then maybe you need to look into adoption.
