I think I want to have another baby. I have a 18 mth old boy and a 4 mth old girl. As u can tell I had them back to back. So I had said I dint want any more but then I had to have an ovary removed and was asked the tough question of if I planed to have any more kids? But being asked has made me think about it. Do I? And yes I think I do. But my husband is happy w just 2 plus your life changes. Need a bigger vehicle, a bigger house, I wont be going back to work for even longer and having to go through another pregnancy with 2 small children. I just dont know what to do, the thought of never having another baby is sad to me im only 29. To top it off I dont know how hard it will be to get pregnant with only 1 ovary. Plus the pregnacy lasts so long both my kids were crazy over due. Deliveries where easy enough, my kids are perfectly healthy. Is there anyone out there with the same dilemma Im in? And if so what did u do?

Do you only want another one because they asked you? If the ovary issue wasn't happening would you be desperate for another baby. You've got 2 kids. It gets harder when they can both walk.

I have heard of this ovary problem but I dont have it my self. The problem you have is you will not always ovulate every month so it could potentially take you longer, or you could hit the jackpot first month. Nobody could give you odds on that. Are you sure wanting this other baby is not just your body in a panic that the choice is being taken away from you. You really have plenty of time to think about this. I had my first at 21 and another at 24 and then a gap and another at 38! Sit down calmly with your husband and talk it through the world is orgainised to raise two kids, the car seats 4 comfortably but wont sit 5. All hotels, theme parks and family tickets are for 4 not 5. If you have another baby now you will have 3 in nappies, 3 sets of school uniforms to purchase and 3 colleges to pay for all in a space of 3 years! That is going to be expensive!

Really think long term before you decide. If it is really what you want then give your body time to recover before starting again.

Many, many people post about wanting another and the husband doesn't. You both need to sit down and really talk about it. I can't believe you're already feeling broody with a 4 month old lol. Mine are 3 and 6. I had my first at 30 and second at 33.
