I found 1-2 tough! My second baby had a cows milk allergy he cried a lot has colic and reflux . Once he was on the proper milk he was a boy but those first few months was hard. 2-3 was a breeze because my youngest cruz was a joy as a boy slept when I put him down was so content and happy once he got to about 1 and they all started fighting it because tougher . Itís hard work now but itís easier because there all getting more independent
Well weíve been talking and I kind of decided maybe we should wait a year or so to ttc so cruz will be almost in school when baby comes . But then I come to bed alone with my thoughts and I donít want to wait lol . It is so expensive! 😂 yeh I would like a June/July baby. Iím trying to stay relaxed and take things easy but itís so easy to say isnít it . I think the actual reason I want one right now is because I canít because the injection itís a case of I want what I canít have. I am looking forward to life being easier without another baby but in the same sense I want another and itís mainly due to me wanting a girl but Ino it could be another boy .. I would stil be happy but Iíd love a girl . Letís just see how things go

Donna, I suppose it definitely depends how difficult the baby is! My first was kinda hard, but I think everyone has a hard time getting into the swing of things with #1. My 2nd was a breeze (still is, really) so that transition wasn't too bad for me. My 3rd... He's something else! Sweet, but incredibly demanding. So that made the transition from 2 to 3 quite hard for me. I'm hoping #4 is easier! FX you get a girl for your 4th!

6 or 7dpo. Super tired, cramps and twinges on my right side and (TMI) kind of heightened sex drive. Which is weird for me before AF but not it's too early to be a pregnancy symptom, so idk what's up with that.

I'm TTC my 4th (but 5th for our family) and am currently 8dpo.

For me, going from 1-2 was harder than 2-3. Adding a 4th has been chaotic for me as well. HOWEVER, I have to add that he's the exact same age as my youngest (a week apart), so it's basically like having twins. I wouldn't say that it's harder, but it's definitely louder. Much louder.

I figure going from 4-5 can't be much crazier. And, for what it's worth, we share custody of DSS with his mom so we do not have him 100% of the time.

Hey, sorry to be gone for so long! I have been sick with a cold, a stomach bug, and then the flu for the past THREE WEEKS. Ugh. Not to mention, b&b doesn't work on my phone anymore so to use it I have to actually get time away from my 3 little ones and use the computer!

A little update, last cycle I got a ridiculous evap so this cycle I'm definitely not testing early. It seems like my cycles are still really wonky and long. It's cycle day 19 and although I have been getting a flashing smiley the last 2 days, I have no other symptoms of ovulation yet. I'm barely breastfeeding my 12 month old at this point (once a day, max) but idk. Maybe I need to up my vitex dosage. I'm sure it doesn't help that I've been sick for going on a month straight now!

Donna, I'm so sorry you still are waiting on your period. That must be so frustrating. Have you done any research on vitex? It's supposed to be amazing at helping to regulate your cycle. Might be worth looking into? I understand not being sure whether you really want another baby. I flip back and forth daily, lol! My husband is getting really tired of my indecisiveness. I think I really do want a 4th, I'm just scared because #3 was really hard on our family, but I think that was mostly because 1. He's a really high needs baby and 2. My daughter was only 15.5 months old when he was born. So I'm pretty confident that #4 won't be as difficult.

LO4, that's amazing! I"m so happy for you! Hopefully the rest of us are right behind you and we'll all get to be bump buddies!

Elmo, 4 boys! That must be so much fun (and craziness)! Which age gap has been your favorite? When are you going to start TTC #5?

I have been reading about vitex and Dong Quai ... I might give them a go I donít no whether to hold of a little while longer and see how things go and then try them if nothing ..
I found 1-2 really hard as 2 was a high needs baby. Baby 3 was a dream and Iím scared if I have 4 Iíll get another high needs lol.
Itís hard work and I find three tough but my heart just wants another my head says stop 😂 x sorry youíve been ill hun hope ur feeling better x
Iíve started ovulation tests today the first was completely negative and the second had a faint line Ino still means negative tho x

So u take vitex how much do you tell etc x

I take 400 mg vitex (one capsule) a day but I think I'm going to up it to 800 mg, especially if I don't ovulate soon. These long cycles are really frustrating me.

Having a high needs baby vs. a more go-with-the-flow baby does make a huge difference. My first was a semi-easy kid. My 2nd was easy-peasy. She still is the easiest in a lot of ways. My 3rd... even at a year old, he gives us a run for our money. I know if we had another "easy" baby, number 4 would be a piece of cake. If he/she is another high needs baby... well, at least we know what to expect this time.
