Michelle, you are not nuts... siblings are a wonderful thing for a kid. I do understand that you don't have a huge amount of time to decide.... college tuition before retirement anyone? What harm in investigating?

Oh to have a baby sibling for Travler. If I were you, I would be getting the ball rolling now. DOes age factor into it since you are 40? I have no clue, but I think it does. I am 36 and we are giving it a full year from Ella's birth to decide if we want to go that route for sure. I don't think the baby desire will even diminish...

Again I am so happy that others of you feel the way I do about another baby. I am 40 and I spoke to my doctor about the chances of PE again. He said I did wonderfully this time and he is more worried about downs than PE if I were to become pregnant again. In my heart I believe everything would be fine but all of you know the real risks. I am so wonderfully happy with Travler I would love to have another baby to complete our family. Please pray for me that I will be wise and try to make the best decision.

How do you attach a photo. I want to attach one of Travler. He is a real cutie.
