Baby number 4?


No I’m no pregnant , but I want to be (sort of) My head is so confused! I have pro’s and con’s to having another baby (more con’s) so I really don’t know. The pro’s are simple


  1. My heart tells me I want another one
  2. Tom really wants another one


But the con’s are the things that are making it so difficult


  1. I’m scared. I was really poorly through my pregnancy with Harry, the labour was not what I wanted (horrendous) and I was poorly for 6 month after his birth.
  2. The house is not big enough. We only have a 3 bed house so we have nowhere to put a baby. The two boys are already sharing and there is barely enough room for Courtney in her room.
  3. I don’t want to move. We have lived here for 7 years and have slowly made it exactly how we want it. We love the area, it’s close to the schools and shops and we love all the neighbours.
  4. The teen and tween have said they don’t want us to have another one. A part of me feels bad if I didn’t listen to their wishes but the other half of me thinks that I shouldn’t let my kids decide what I do with my life.

So you can see now why I have such a headache. I know I am very lucky to already have three, I don’t deny that but just because I have three doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to have feelings of wanting another one, does it?




What do you guys think? Sometimes an outsiders view can put things in perspective. I love to read your comments 🙂

    Oh bless you, I’m in a similar situation. I would keep having babies until my body stopped working but there are so many cons I cant think about it because it breaks my heart 🙁
