[ - ] If you still have baby fever and get a little jealous when you see pregnant women, does that mean you're not finished having children? My friends knew when they were done. Husband got the big V. Donated all the baby stuff. Our 3rd is 17 months. I don't feel done yet. I could have sworn I would get that "done" feeling with the 3rd! 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i don't get jealous - but I think I might want more and I know DH doesn't and it's tough. My MIL keeps telling me to just get PG and he'll warm up to the idea. Honestly - I think this is how at least 2 of my husband's siblings came about. I can't be so dishonest. I know this response is not at all helpful!

[ - ] Older dd is jealous of younger dd, who gets a lot of attention at school, etc. because she is funny and outgoing. Older dd is very special but introverted and doesn't get the same kind of attention. Any advice on what to say to her? Most of the time she is very loving with her sister but once in a while all the attention gets to her. In general, I would say there is not much sibling rivalry. tia 58 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
