How old is your LO?

Right now we are just going to have fun trying lol. I bought some OPK's just to use so I know when my fertile days are...but I'm not charting or temping or anything like that. I hope conceiving #2 isn't going to be hard for us...but I'be heard of women who got pregnant supper easy the first time and then have a difficult time the second time around. Hopefully thats not the case!

Are you guys doing anything special?
Yep, we did the exact same thing!! We were waiting until my DD's birthday (my request) and that has been bumped up (my husbands request) and now I've got all sorts of impatience again. My daughter will be 2 soon, I thought I wanted as close to three years as possible between them but now I'm starting to change my mind based on the stage my daughter is currently at now. I think close in age will be worth it once you get through the little bit of difficulty adjusting at first!! I had lots of people tell me to start trying really soon after my first but it's taken me this long to convince myself I'm ready, even then I'm not always 100% sure

I really wouldn't worry about it if I were you! I'm sure it will be easy, especially if you don't stress and just enjoy the process! I have been temping and started OPKs a couple of days ago. Pretty sure O is right around the corner for me! Unfortunately, my husband told me the other day he thinks he needs to "take a break for a while" because of a recent surgery it has been a little hard on him. I'm thinking I'm going to try my hardest to get just ONE more time in, but who knows

Besides that I've also been doing some things, probably ridiculous and will surely jinx me for even trying, to try a minor gender sway

So your cycle just started, right? When will you be testing for this round?

I won't be testing for 8 days, so next Friday or Saturday I may test.. Although I have a TON of tests.. Bought 70 IC's for last cycle and think I only used 10 or so.,. So I've got quite a few!!! I also have 2 frers I'm saving for special occasions!!! I WILLNOT use them this month unless I have very noticeable lines and my husband can see it on my IC.. I told myself there was a line last month and wasted several frers and lots of $$$$.. So I'm not doing that this month!!! And honestly I don't even want to test.. the thought of seeing bfn makes me want to burn all my tests ... Last two months with tons of symptoms and bfn's took it's toll I suppose !! So I'm going to test *maybe* in 8-9 days but maybe not!!! I look forward to seeing everyone else's tests!!!

I am nervous about the age gap being close...and nervous about how difficult the pregnancy will be while also taking care of a little one. I kept going back and forth deciding too lol. But I got a positive on a test last week and I'm pretty sure it was a chemical. But my husband got really excited and brought up trying sooner. So here we are lol

Hopefully you and your hubby can and get your BFP!

Omg I've been thinking about doing a gender sway haha. I want a boy but I'm not sure how to go about it. I need to read up on it more! What are you hoping for this time?

I am coming to the end of my period. I'm pretty sure the last day is today....I'm new to OPKs so I'm just assuming you start testing the day after your period? I'm not too sure.

I did the same thing last week! I had a light positive on one test and kept buying tests to see if it was getting any darker. So I ended up buying the Wondfos for this month to test on haha.

Aw don't be too stressed about it! I'm looking forward to seeing your tests though!

Anybody hoping for twins ?! Or am I the only one?? Dh said he wants me to get my tubes tied with my next c-section but that really makes me sad to think about.. I kinda do kinda don't want twins lol, but I certainly want another girl.. boys terrify me (I came from a family of 5 girls, I was the middle) so I'd love to have tons of girls!!! We have one and she's amazing !!! I'd be thrilled with a boy too, as long as we end up with a healthy baby, that's all that matters !!!

Oh gosh no! Haha. I'm nervous about going from 1 to 2 kids...I couldn't imagine going from 1 to 3!

I want a boy for our second baby. I want to be able to go shopping all over again for all boy stuff this time lol

I actually wouldn't mind. I had Hypermesis the entire pregnancy with DD and the thought of going through it all again is daunting. I may as well get two for the price of 1

Omg I've been thinking about doing a gender sway haha. I want a boy but I'm not sure how to go about it. I need to read up on it more! What are you hoping for this time?

I am coming to the end of my period. I'm pretty sure the last day is today....I'm new to OPKs so I'm just assuming you start testing the day after your period? I'm not too sure.
I worry about the difficulty of a second pregnancy too! My first pregnancy was so incredibly easy! I think part of that was because I made it, I had some issues but not many, but I also had zero morning sickness! I worry so much that a second would be completely different since I had it so easy the first time and that will be so hard with a LO already. If I was going to have sickness I would have preferred it with the first pregnancy since I didn't have a toddler to take care of lol. I just have this bad feeling I will have morning sickness this time, idk why.

I'm doing somewhat of a "sway" for another girl, so I don't know too terribly much besides what I've picked up on through reading about girl sways, the what-not-to-do's. But I do know if you're hoping to conceive a boy you can up your chances by tracking O and DTD just the once on O days (boy sperm supposedly swim faster but are not as strong so they get the best chance if they can make it there first and not have the girls to fight off). Also eat cereal for breakfast every morning. Increase potassium in your diet and lots of sodium! Lots of bananas, tomatoes, potatoes, etc. Taking a prenatal I think is supposed to help too? Also, I guess it helps if you have the big O when DTD. I'm jealous typing this because for the girl sway you are not supposed to have the big O and very low sodium intake, boo and boo!

As far as OPKs go I would just start testing around CD8-10, unless you think you O super early. I started on CD9 and I just got a positive (I think at least) on CD15, which is actually early for me. DH agreed (or kind of got tricked , into one last DTD last night) and now he's all for it again but I think I'm going to have to turn him down because of the most likely positive test This will be easier said than done I'm sure!

Now that I'm pretty sure I'm really close to being in the TWW, which totally sucks, I'm going to be really impatient for you to O and join me!

I used to always sell heck no to any kind of multiples! But for some reason this cycle (I must be all high on hormones or something) I thought it would be kind of exciting. I have no idea why and I'm sure if it somehow happened I would just pee my pants from being so terrified. I'm pretty sure this would also be my last pregnancy as well so sometimes that makes you think about how sad that is, in a way at least because in a way it's also a nice thought, idk. I have friends who are having twins and I'm thrilled! I would be so scared going from 1 to 3 though! I also want another girl so badly, and I also came from a family of five girls! I'm just so weird about "jinxing" things that I feel like trying to sway the odds in my favor are going to back-fire. But, like you said, a healthy baby is all that matters!

Are you trying anything for a little pink bundle specifically?

No I'm not trying anything specifically for a girl, dh really wants a boy so bad, so I'm just letting whatever is supposed to happen, happen!!! my dh talks all the time of having a little boy so that would be so sweet to be able to give him that!!! Really b/g twins would be perfect
