I have a son. hes almost 1. But I desperately want a daughter too. My pregnancy with my son was very rough. I developed preeclqmpsia while pregnant and he almost died at birth. I had horrible post partum depression and broke my tailbone giving birth.

Is it messed up that I really want another baby? I mean I want to reach my weight loss goals really badly too....but I also want to try for a daughter.... :(
And then the downward spiral began
I knew it was real
Because I could not unthink it
I could not stand still to make it stop

Do not be put off by one bad pregnancy.  With my eldest i had an undiagnosed kidney infection, ended up hospitalised, permanent damage done, was so ill, horrific birth, full episiotomy back to back no pain relief.  Honestly it was the most horrific thing ive ever done.  followed by pnd, mastitis, you name it......... my second was a fucking walk in the park!!  Easy pregnancy, easy birth, total dream :) I dont think its messed up to want another xx

I totally hear you!

I couldn't help but getting pregnant again when my first baby was only 10 months old and that the father was abusive and all.  I had the same feeling after the second child, but I was then single (as I finally left him while I was still pregnant) and I was a bit more aware of the impulse and smarter about it   ;)

Right there with you. I was induced early because I came into the hospital with a blood pressure of 162/103.. I was purple and having chest pains.. I gained so much weight after delivering him, and I keep telling myself that I can't get pregnant again until I lose all this weight, so I can actually have a baby bump... but at the same time, I'm dying to be pregnant and have another baby.
