It’s the holidays, so there’s time for BDing - and everyone is relaxed and happy, so another baby would be great, right? And there’s twins in DH’s family, so I might have twins, which would be great because I’ve always wanted four kids. And if I got pregnant now, the baby would be a Scorpio. I love scorpios. This is a fantastic idea, yes?

Haha i dunno, you might have a singleton and everyone knows three kids is the devil's number of children. A dark vortex will take over your house as your children overrun it with their mischievous mischief 😏

Hell yes. I love Scorpios too and baby Scorpios will be super cute and will grow up to be intriguingly brooding adults who brood.

I think you should have a baby and I should eat the entire plum pudding and drink that spare bottle of wine, which may lead to me having another baby.

On a serious note, if you and your DH want another baby, now is probably a good time to have fun trying for a baby.

And if your baby is conceived around the Christmas period, you could have fun with names.

Noel
Noelle
Carol
Holly
Silver
Ivy
Rudolph

Baby would be a Virgo most probably. You’d have to wait another month to conceive a Scorpio.

I have two September babies conceived over the Xmas period, it’s a lovely time of year to have babies!

Team yes, do it!

After spending an hour with my 2 1/2 year old nephew yesterday, I was thinking yeah, I could go another one. After hour four when he was still saying the same words over and over again (in a very cute, but groundhog Day style) I remembered a bit more about the under 3 years and that feeling left!

Yeah, that’s my problem. I don’t actually like children until they turn 4. Newborns are fine. After that though, it’s almost fun. Almost.

Rudolph is a great name. Noel, not so much. I went to school with a boy named Noel.

You'd need twins in your family :)

Yes have a baby, everyone should have three.  That's the perfect number, I'm not rocking in a corner at the idea ...

We could send some angst ridden teenagers your way and that may curb your "let's have another baby" feelings.

Or send you 2 x 18 months old - you know - when they have dropped the day nap and can't communicate properly but (like the Queen song) "I want it all and I want it NOW"..

Just have the sex and skip the babies.

Babies are hard work and annoying.

And they grow into children who are hard work and annoying.

And then they grown into teenagers who are hard work and annoying.

And they they grown into adults who are hard work and annoying.

And then they put you in a nursing home because now you are hard work and annoying and they can't figure out why.

I have 2 kids born right before the school cutoff and one born just after.  If I had the option to choose I would try to have them born in the middle of the school year so they weren't the youngest or eldest.  But also a newborn is not fun in either freezing cold or boiling hot.

So yes I think September - October is the ideal time to have a baby born. (our school cutoff is April)

No, babies are hard work and suck the life out of you! I’m quite partial to my toddlers, DS has just turned 2 and he’s gorgeous and super cute and funny. I can’t wait until he can drop naps and we can live without having to worry about naps (can you tell today’s nap was difficult?).

Have you lost your mind PP?

The day nap was the only thing that kept what was left of my sanity intact for years !  An hour of blessed peace.

After the painful labour I had 5 days ago? Yeah, nah don’t do it to yourself

Newborns are awfully cute though.

Mum had six children on only one ovary- I’m suspecting she might have a hyper ovulation gene.  And DH is a twin, and had twins himself with his first wife. I reckon I could be that (un)lucky.

I can think of the following positives....

They are so much fun in certain stages.
You won’t have to be pregnant for the worst bit in summer
You won’t have to worry about birthday parties clashing with summer holidays.
You won’t have to think about school readiness.

Are you ovulating right now? If so stay strong and soon you will conquer you’re ovaries irrational desires for another month
Also we are in the middle of an extinction thanks to a climate emergency of our species and many others - the clusterfaark that is to be our children’s legacy will have them hating us for it.

I probably am ovulating right......now.

BABY!

ETA- that was my hormones talking. I didn’t just make one, as far as I know. Unless it was some kind of incarnation, in which case, I’m more likely to be the mother of Ganesh or similar - not so much a nice little boy like Jesus.
