I will go first...

I'm 32 and have been married to my lovely dh for almost 3 years. We have a beautiful baby girl who is almost 21 months, conceived on our honeymoon but after 13 years of persuading dh to marry me and have children!

I'm very hesitant about ttc'ing for number two. I have always wanted a few children but after having F I'm just so besotted with her I have a lot of guilt about trying for another. I know it is the best gift I can give her, but it's been hard to make the leap.

I am a teacher in primary school and since September have worked part time, sharing a class with another girl. She announced she was pregnant a few months ago and leaving at Christmas so that also made me worry about leaving this academic year aswell. I figure ttc'ing now would give an earliest dd of July so more probably that I will see out the academic year?

I am currently on cd15 of a 30 day cycle according to ff (but with no temping), due to o on Saturday and af is due on the 26th. I was very irregular on bcp but have had a couple of regular cycles of 30 days now so I'm hoping things have settled?

We have dtd a few times now and hope to keep it up? Dh knows more babies are on the horizon but I haven't told him specifically it's time, he just thinks he's in the good books!

Bored you enough for now! More of my story with F in my journal (link in my signature).

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you all

Hello princesskell!!! I'm gonna join you on this thread too!

I too am 32 and have a dd who is 2 later this month. You put my thoughts into words re wanting another child - I do so want another but I can't imagine loving another child as much as my dd. Like you, having a second is as much for her as it is for me and dh!

Dh and I have been married for 5 years and our dd took 3 months to conceive. I'm now onto month 4 of ttc #2 so already taken longer! I hope I fall pregnant soon, I am very impatient and ttc is knackering! And takes forever!!!

My cycles are pretty regular on and off the pill and I've just started using a cbfm to help pinpoint ovulation a bit better.

Lets see some bfps on this October thread! X

Hello!

I just turned 30, and DH and I have been married for 1.5 years. I got pregnant with our twins just 3 months after our wedding, and they are now 9 months old. We're trying for #3 now, I'm on cycle 3. Today is CD17 and I think I either ovulated yesterday or will be soon. I'm still breastfeeding, so my cycles have been a little wacky, but I'm hopeful

hi DragonflyWing!
Wow a twin mum!! And ttc'ing again when they are 9 months...that is crazy exciting!! how have you found having twins? Are they girls or boys or both! We have twins and triplets in the family and I always wondered if I would have multiples.
Good luck to you

Hey Fleur
It's such a complicated mix of emotions isn't it? I know I don't want F to be an only child, but the thought of her not being my only child hurts me inside!! I know it will be great but I'm so scared! A friend on bnb has just had her 2nd and wrote a lovely birth story of how she felt after giving birth, it really calmed my fears and reassured me it will all be ok!

How is dh about ttc'ing? Is he very involved with things?
Good luck and

Hi

I am 25, I have two children, a girl who has just turned 2 and an almost 11 month old boy. I have been with my oh for 8 years and married for 3.

Children weren't in our "plan" as it were but after falling pregnant with my eldest, we decided to have our family before I fully begin my career. (I graduated with a masters 3 years ago, right before finding out I was pregnant)

My oh is in the Royal Navy, but for the first time in 8 years, he is staying at home for a while

We have decided to try for our third and final baby, hoping for another small age gap. I feel terrified and slightly bonkers to be ttc, but I know it is the right thing for us.

I have a careers meeting next week to hopefully go back to college next september, so working towards that should keep my mind off ttc a little

Xxx

I have a boy and a girl, and it is so much fun! It's also really difficult, but I feel like it's getting easier as they get older. On the one hand, they are starting to get into everything, but on the other, they can hold their own bottles now, and you wouldn't believe how much time that saves! Feeding them used to take 80% of my day...now they happily sit and feed themselves.

We originally planned to wait until the twins are 2 to start trying for #3, but we had a bit of an oops a few months ago and thought I might be pregnant...and it made us realize that having them 18 months apart would be fine too . We've always known we want at least 3 kids, so it's just a matter of timing now.

I know what you mean! I can't imagine splitting my time and attention and feeling like everyone is getting enough of me, it's hard enough already! I have to say, some days I want another baby soooo much it hurts but other days I am very philosophical and think - what will be will be and if we only have one then that's ok too.

I'm going through a crazy time at work and have applied for a promotion so it feels like everything is going on at once! My fear is that I won't get a promotion or get pregnant!!! But lets cross that bridge when I come to it ;-)

Dh is very much on board and wants another child. He has a brother and wants a sibling for our dd. how about your hubby?

I love this forum!!! X

Ok my turn to join in!!
I'm 21 years old and been with OH 6 years in jan xx we are currently ttc #1. We have been trying over 3 years and suffered a miscarriage the day after my 18th birthday. I have pcos which seems to be making it nearly impossible.
Doesn't help that a lot of friends/family are either pregnant or have just had babies and I know its just me but they all seem to be insensitive to my feelings xx
Sorry for rambling.. baby dust to all xx

I'm on cycle 1 TTC with my soulmate and I think I might be preggers. A couple of faint lines but I'm waiting for a clear line before surprising OH!
