I think I've officially lost my mind. I think I want to TTC baby #2 sometime this year rather than waiting until mid-2011 as we originally planned.
I suppose it's not entirely my fault for thinking such crazy thoughts - I'm blaming Mike for this one. He's been the one bringing it up over and over again this past week which, if you think about it, is pretty funny considering he was the one that took awhile to warm up to the idea of TTC the first time around. I was simply joking around and mentioned how weird it's going to feel to use birth control again after so long (I just got the go-ahead for sexy time again from my OB yesturday) and his response went something like this, "We already have one baby. What's the point in birth control now? Why not have all of our kids as close in age as possible and just be done sooner rather than later?". He was dead serious.
My initial reaction was "Oh, heck no!" and I really wanted to wait until next year as we had discussed earlier. However, the more I think about it and the more time I spend with Abbey, the more I'm starting to think that I wouldn't mind having our kids so close in age. I'm now beginning to think that I'd like to TTA until June (since 9 months from then I'd be eligible for FMLA again) and then just stop preventing to let things happen on their own.
I can totally see rooms with white padded walls in my future...
