Baby # 3

No I'm not pregnant.

Now that is out of the way ( the title can be deceiving) but this post is about a future baby # 3. Yes it will happen. When? Not completely sure.
I have had baby fever since D was abiut 8 months old. Of course that was WAY to early for another. But that is when I was really really thinking about how many children I wanted. I had never had a specific # of children I wanted, but if you would have asked me 5 years ago, I would probably said 2 was enough. But I never thought about it in depth. And believe me, my 2 are enough. It seems my entire heart is just so full for them. But I also know that I have more love to give.
I would love to have maybe 4 or 5. But who knows? Maybe after 3 i will know in my heart that we are done. Someone once told me that you will know when to stop when you feel like you have one too many kids. I suppose one day I will get that feeling and just know I'm done.
So we have decided its best for is to wait another year or so to consider trying for another. By that time, I will be an RN, and Dominic will be around 4ish. That sounds very appealing, considering I had 2, 2 and under at one time. Not that it was too hard, but a little stressful. At that time I will be roughly 27 and that leaves me with about 7 more years of baby growing if we decide we want more. That's one good thing about having children young like we did. No rush because of age.
Inside I still want to be pregnant NOW. I can't wait to see the two pink lines, the little blip on the ultrasound machine, feeling the kicks and rolls in my belly, and yes even labor and birth. I can't wait to snuggle with a squishy little newborn skin to skin and successfully breastfeed. Also I can't wait to use the 30 plus NB cloth diapers I have been collecting. And don't even get me started on newborn pictures!
All good things come to those who wait, right? I know there is never a "right" time to have a baby, bit there is definitely a bad time. Sadly that time is now, for atleast the next year or so.
