No baby fever for me

It's been over 8 months since my daughter was born and I know that for some people they're get baby fever back around this time. I am definitely not ready to be pregnant again. My husband and I always talked about trying again once Avery turns 2. That seemed like a long way off until I realized that by next valentines day we'll be almost ready to do it all again.

Needless to say I'm not that excited about it. I'm sure I'll feel different later, but right now I'm looking forward to getting control of my body back. If everything goes as planned I'll nurse Avery until she's a year old. That means my body will belong to her for 22 months minimum (10mo pregnancy plus 12mo nursing). The idea of gettin pregnant again just makes me tired. Plus I'm really looking forward to chasing my daughter around and watching her grow. It makes me sad to think I may have to slow down to deal with pregnancy (since I'm kind of high risk) so I won't be able to participate as much. She's only going to be 2yrs old once and I don't want to miss it because I'm laying on the couch with morning sickness or a sore back :(

I definitely want more kids and I want them kind of close in age, but I'm no where near ready for another. Hopefully I'll feel different about it this time next year.
