Wow, thank you so much for all your insightful comments to my last blog entry! I didn't realise it was one of those topics that affected so many of us. I can't help but feel that it's really unfair that we have to even MAKE this decision. Why can't we just decide in two years time to have another child and BOOM, pregnant. If only it were that simple.
I spoke to the HG about it last night and we contemplated what our specialist had told us. And it turns out we both have the same feelings on the topic. Yes, we would love to have a second child BUT we would be happy with one. And therefore we will wait until he is at least a year old before we jump back on the TTC bandwagon and prevent until then. It seems crazy to me to contemplate birth control again after all this time but . . . another pregnancy straight after the first one just wouldn't be what is right for our family. Is that selfish? I want to be able to treasure this first year with my son before throwing another pregnancy/baby into the mix and if we already feel blessed (which believe me, we do!) with just having one, then I think this is the road for us.
So, we will take the gamble and see where it leads us . . .
