The Baby Dilemma

I was happy to put up an exhibition of my products. I was elated as I was able to start my work again in whatever little time I had now. Now I don’t have to plan days in advance to go out with my 3 year old son. Now I get time to watch movies or go for long walks alone. I was happy thinking about the trip with my son to Pondicherry. I had already started planning for our next trip. But then ” Oh Again! Oh Yes wow ! No not now! Oh I am pregnant again! Thousands thoughts came to my mind.

My husband and myself both of us had thought of 2nd child. I had a hard time while trying to conceive the first one. Taking medications, hormones injection, regular visit to the doctor, monthly sonography.. !!It was taking a toll on me. I didn’t want to go through the same process again for the 2nd time. But then this time I easily conceived. It was planned but unexpected I would say.

Having only one child was also fine with us. But the thought of what will happen to our son if/when we are not there? Both my husband and myself have siblings. The bond shared between siblings is above friends and parents. My son also started asking for a baby. There are many ifs and buts, pros and cons of having a child or 2nd child. It is everyone’s personal decision.

I have friends and cousins who are happily married for years and don’t have any kids nor do they plan to have any. Some have one child and wish to have another but can’t due to various reasons. This dilemma of having kids or how many or not to have is never ending.

I would like to know from my friends, specially mommy friends what do u feel ? – 1 child, 2 children or no kids at all.

  1. Very well described about your experience Gopa. Yes, if you ask me about having babies then definitely it’s a blessing which every lady should experience. I would love to look forward with two children in my life.
