Putting away the newborn clothes I am led to question whether I’ll ever experience the pitter patter of another child's feet.
Sparkles & Stretchmarks author Hayley recently wrote a post called The Maybe Baby where she considered having another baby. For me personally I’d love to have three children. My husband and I both know what it is like to grow up with two other siblings and thus there’s a temptation there to have three ourselves.
However, regular readers of my blog will know that I have Type 2 Diabetes and both my pregnancies have resulted in my daughters being born at 36 and 37 weeks because of this. Both times my kidneys suffered a battering from sky high Creatinine levels which is very dangerous.
So I've been left questioning whether that’s it for me or do I risk having a third one? Some days I wonder whether I should have started my family in my 20s. However, it wasn't until I reached my 30s that I met the right man and settled down. I know I wouldn't be happy had I had children in my past relationships for sure.
Seeing and reading about others who are currently pregnant relights that frustration of not knowing what the future will bring. Is it worth the risk or should I just be content that I have two lovely little girls and a handsome hubby that all mean the world to me.
