I'm Having Another Baby! (Not Really, Just Pretending)

Moms in the Babies group were sharing how they'd react if they found out they were expecting another baby at this very moment -- regardless of whether it would be possible or not. Pretend. You have no time to let it settle, you're sharing your initial gut response ...

Some interesting reactions:

  • I am so not ready to have a baby right now. I just had one six months ago.
  • I would be the happiest woman on the face of the earth. My family will finally be complete, I would finally get my tubes tied, I would go all brand new with baby excitement again.
  • I'd fall off the deep end. Then I'd suck it up and realize that I would not be given more than I can handle and find a way to make it work.
  • I would seriously cry. I'm done having kids.
  • I would be in total shock. I have four beautiful daughters already. Besides, I already went through menopause.
  • I would cry, scream, throw a few things, and blame it all on my husband.
  • I'd think, 'It's a miracle!" since my daughter isn't even 6 weeks yet.
  • I'd be upset, then I'd get over it and be happier than ever that I'm having another baby.
