My first response is
Both of us were blessed with a younger sibling. Josh and Jordan are around 6 years apart, as are me and Deanna.
|me and Deanna|
Part of me says, "why not just go ahead and have one, they'll be around 3 or 4 years apart."
But the other part of me, the negative, unsure one keeps arguing with the rational part of me. It's gone something like this (negative voice in italics and rational voice in bold).
1) The first pregnancy didn't go super well, do you really have it in you to go through it again? Don't get me wrong, my pregnancy wasn't absolutely horrible and at no point was my child in immediate danger, but I had preeclampsia and went through a lot of horrible swelling, headaches and high blood pressure before I was almost bed-ridden, but then induced early at 37 weeks instead. BUT despite the horrible-ness of being on that Magnesium drip, having that cervical catheter and all that pitocin, I had a healthy baby AND It was a blessing he was early, because at 7 lbs. 14 oz. at 37 weeks, just imagine what a 40 week old Sawyer would have weighed. (read Sawyer's birth story here)
3) With your job, you won't have enough time for another one. BUT I can make time. Especially for another child.
