Placebo effect and pregnancy

It's crazy how a womens body can "want to be pregnant!"! Ya know what I mean!?! I know that it isn't the right time to have another baby right now.... we have two children already, the youngest about to turn a year, my husband doesn't want another baby, we just bought a 3 bedroom house that's just the right size for the four of us...and the list of reason why we shouldn't have another baby right now goes on. BUT, despite all of these...something inside of me yerns to have just one more baby. I want an infant to hold and to breast feed agian.... I want my children to have another brother or sister. We weren't financially ready for either of our first two children...but now if we were pregnant...we'd be very comfortable finacially. I also really want to have a natural water birth... and I want to be suprised with the sex of a baby. I'm just so torn!!! I'm not on any birth control...how ever...we do use condoms. But, since my last period (which was March 18th) after we've had sex with a condom, we do it again right after without one...but he doesn't cum again. I do realize that there is pre-cum which can lead to pregnancy... afterall, that is how our daughter came along. Anyways, the whole point of this Loooong drug out story was to ask a simple question. I took a pregnancy test (the equate brand from walmart) tonight and it came out negitive (I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad about that! lol!) Soooo... the question is... is it really too soon for me to have taken the test!?! My period is due in 5 days now. If so...when should I take another test? I just REALLY want to know:o) I hate wondering!!! Thanks girls.... hope I didn't bore ya'll too much!


God bless,

Teresa

It is to early for a reliable result. Some (very few) women can get a very very faint line on a test that early. So, it is possible to get a positive but you should never believe a negative that early.


Good luck! Let us know how it turns out!!

Thanks so much:o) I know some of the tests say "5 days before your missed period" but in reading some of the posts of here, it seems that 4 days is the norm. It's funny that you said a very very faint line because I thought I noticed a very faint line at first that seemed to quickly disappear. With both of my children, the lines were very dark because I wasn't expecting to be pregnant and tested later on....so I really wasn't expecting a light line. Do you think it would be too early to test again in the morning? Thanks again for your response... it's hard to talk to any of my friends or family about this because I know it will get blown out of proportion and next thing I know, my mom (who lives in a diff. state) will be calling and asking why I'm 6 months pregnant and didn't tell her! LOL! Anyways, Hope to hear back from you soon:o) Any other advice from anyone would be great too:o)

God Bless,

Re: Wanting another baby
I totally understand wanting another baby!
My daughter will be 2 in June and for the last few months I have been contemplating whether I should have my IUD removed or not. I really, really, want another baby! I don't want the age gaps between my daughter and her sibling to be more than 3 years, so I figure that I need to get started pretty soon!
The problem is my husband wants me to wait. I know if I were to get pregnant, he would be thrilled. He says the child we already have is difficult enough to take care of, let alone another baby.
It's different for me though. I would have 5 million babies if I had the uterus and the money LOL

I promise you having one more IS NOT as hard as lots of people make it sound! It was actaully easier for me, once my daughter (the youngest) got a little bit older abnd my son (the oldest) was actaully able to play with her. Now, they are both occupied with each other and it makes it alot easier to get things around the house done. So, tell your hubby that isn't a good enough excuse lol! Anyways, yeah... I totally understand about the age thing. I thought, before I had kids that I would want them 4 years apart but mine are alomost 2 years apart and I LOVE IT. Wouldn't have it any other way. That is another reason I kinda want to have another now...so that all three kids will be spaced the same:o) Well, think hard about having another baby, then seriously talk with your hubby about it!

God bless,
