Ok, yes, I’ve been pretty vocal about the Little being an only child but lately I’ve thought about having a second child.
Straight up, I HATED being pregnant. I dealt with a host of pregnancy symptoms that I don’t care to even think about, none the less live through again. Pregnancy made me CRAZY and it took another year after it to get back to my “normal” frame of mind. I didn’t like anything about it. Period.
But, I love being a mom. I love my son with an intensity that I didn’t know was possible and I can’t imagine him not having a sibling to grow up with. I’m the oldest of four so I had the camaraderie of sisters and a brother. I know that if we have a second child it’s not a guarantee that they’ll have an amazing bond that will last them through their lives but the odds are in our favor.
Mr. Bejelly wants a second child and has left it up to me to decide. It was hell for him too going through 18 months of crazy Kelly so he’s not pushing for a decision. We’re not getting any younger either. Today, he turned the juicy age of 39 and I’ll be 36 in September so time is ticking ticking and I’m not ready to make a decision for another couple of months, maybe years. I almost wish that I had known I would end up with a c-section and just planned on having my tubes tied so I wouldn’t have to make a decision.
This is something I’m going to struggle with for the next couple of months. So mamas, did you know how many children you wanted and did it change after pregnancy? Do you have an only child? I love to hear your story.
