Oh nice! We actually had Willow as a name on the table this last time haha

Iím not sure. I had ewcm from 10/3-10/6 with some minor cramping, but pinching ovary pains on 10/5... dtd on 10/7 so I may have missed the window, but not entirely sure as I wasnít truly tracking.

So anywhere from 7-11dpo? 😂

Hey...!

I am TTC our fourth little one. We decided to start trying mid(ish) July this year. I'm 99% sure this will be our last. Starting to get a little frustrated. I'm still breastfeeding my youngest who is nearly 11 months and no sign of a period yet. I haven't had a period since I got pregnant with my oldest in October of 2012. I got pregnant at 12m pp after my oldest guy with my middle man. After middle man I got pregnant for a third time (loss) at 9m pp, and then directly afterwards without a period in between I got pregnant at 11m pp with my youngest bub. I expected to be ovulating by now so it is a bit discouraging.

All my children are little boys, very close in age (22m gap and 19.5m gap) and I couldn't love our family and dynamic more! Very anxious and excited to add a fourth and final sprout to our family.

Waiting to ovulate is hard.

We are a loving, happy, gentle parenting, homeschooling, open minded family of five. We love our chaotic, busy household and I am looking for likeminded people to go through this journey to baby #4 with!!

Ps. Willow was the girls name we had chosen when I was pregnant with our second son!

Super, my 1st too have the small gap and I have to say I did find the gap hard but so good now, they play together etc. Yes this will be our final baby too if it ever happens, gets v disheartening as the months go on

Love your names x

I'm used to the gap, so I quite like it. It can be hard at times too though. More than one kid potty training, waking at night, needing you all at once. Not to mention it is super competitive between my boys. But for us it is perfect.
I find it disheartening to be waiting and trying and just having nothing happen. I don't think many psople would understand- I already have three children and they are still young and I have "plenty of time", but the feeling we are missing someone and the desire to complete our family is very real.

I'm going back and forth with the idea of trying for number 4. One moment I think it's a great idea and the next I'm filled with anxiety.... Aaaa! I have a 5yo, 3.5yo and 13 month old already ��

I felt unsure if we would try for number 4 for a while after we had our third, but in the end when I picture our family it doesn't feel complete at 3.

I personally don't mind if anyone trying for further than#4 sticks around. I think there is just a general feeling that when you are trying beyond 2 or 3 kids that it is less accepted- and also it feels like a different situation.

Anyway...
I feel ao frustrated lately. I feel like my body won't cooperate. It might sound crazy to some that I have 3 children 4 and under as it is, and that my youngest is just 11m and yet I want to be pregnant so badly right now... But the feeling is real and even I didn't expect to feel this way trying for my fourth
