• When Are You Having Another One? 

  • As I slowly pack away the baby stuff, the realization hits me like a ton of bricks – my baby isn’t a baby these days. All of the boxes of newborn and baby clothes have made their way to my parents’ house – just in case. The rock ‘n play and the bouncer ended up there as well. We lowered his crib mattress and, most recently, started trading his bottles for sippy cups. 

    It’s become painstakingly obvious to me that this phase of life may be over – for good. Most of my friends have either already had number two or are currently pregnant. Here we are almost a year after having our first, and I can feel it creeping up again – a sense of wanting and wishing – and wondering if my son will ever have a little brother or sister. 

    After almost a year, I’m beginning to think that my little miracle baby is going to remain an only child indefinitely. I’m going to be 32 in a few months. That means a number of things including, but not limited to, the fact that I don’t have all that many more baby-making years ahead of me. That also, for whatever reason, means that people are already asking when we’re having another one….

    1. I was told at a young age that it was possible for me have kids, but that I would have a very hard time getting pregnant. Me & my husband tried and tried for at least the first 2 years of our marriage. We tried everything! Eventually, we were just mentally exhausted from trying and decided that if it was meant to be, it would happen on GOD’S time. So we stopped letting it be our only/main focus & just lived life normally. We were pretty out of shape & somewhat overweight at the time so we decided to focus on getting healthy and fit again, like in our highschool days. We both ended up losing around 100 pounds each. At around my 80-90lb weightless mark, I discovered that I had became pregnant! We were so excited! We had finally been blessed with a baby! About 8 months after he was born, people began to ask “are you ready for another one yet” lord no!! We were still getting used to having just 1. After all, we were still in our early 20s so we had plenty of time for more children. No need to rush right? Well he is currently 18 months old & I am 8 months pregnant with yet ANOTHER boy! I often wonder if my weight loss is what helped me to become pregnant, or if GOD just saw that it was the right time in mm y life to have a baby. Either way we are beyond blessed & couldn’t ask for more. Moral of the story, never give up, and never doubt. My aunt had her 2nd child when she was 40 years old & he’s 9 years old now and as smart and healthy as any other kid I know. If it is truly a desire of your heart to have another child, I believe with faith and prayer, that GOD will bless you with another one. Don’t give up & keep your head up!
