First I told him that I was too tired to even think about it, that I wouldn’t even consider it until Kendall was sleeping through the night. Then he did.

Then I said I wanted my breasts back to myself for a little bit. I didn’t want to share them with any babies, and I didn’t want them blowing up again for a while. They’ve been all mine for over three months.

Then I said that I wanted to train for and run another marathon first. The race is November 15th.

I also told Scott that I absolutely could not consider getting pregnant again with the closest Chick-fil-A being so far away. “You know I NEED Chick-fil-A to grow a baby!” I just drove past an almost finished building less than 5 miles from our house with a “Coming Soon” sign posted next to Chick-fil-A sign.


Kendall is 3 days shy of 17 months old.

  1. Welcome to MY world! My latest excuse…when Em can wipe her own ass, we can talk about it…DH went out and bought a potty for her 1st birthday. seriously.

  2. Ok.. Not going to lie. I am just so stinkin excited to hear your perspective on the second go- round before I go there. I’m selfish like that. Here’s hoping you go first!

  3. Well, looks like all systems are a go, chica. πŸ™‚

    I’m pregnant right now, and DH and I had a convo the other night about how soon we would want another one. His response? “I really don’t think I’d even want to wait a year.” I punched him.

  4. A woman’s body only starts to rebound by 18 months, so you should wait a minimum of 18 months for ‘optimum’ 2nd baby health. And that really isn’t a joke, it’s been proven!

  5. lol. my daughter is 14 months and my husband keeps asking me if I’m ready to have the next one. my exact words to him were, “I’d like to have my body to myself for a little while thank you.”

  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. πŸ€— πŸ‘‹πŸ» I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 πŸ‘Ά

Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. πŸ‘¬πŸ€± The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. πŸ’–

It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞

I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. πŸ˜† ❓

Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈβ¬…οΈ
