Haha my husband is used to it I think, before my daughter we were trying for 7/8 years now we are trying for our third in 3 years. We must be crazy. Looks like your going for a close age gap too, my youngest is 6 months.

Will you? That's great, I love homeschooling. It so wonderful my children never having to leave me for school. I know it's not for everyone but I love my children always being with me. We are so close. Are you in the uk?

Yes. By my reckoning, it makes much more sense for me to change two little bottoms at the same time. . My little one is 10 mos. I'll be having my 3rd c section this go. But I concur-- I do believe we are crazy, regardless of how rational I have made compounding the chaos. Ha ha.

I'm actually in the United States in Tennessee. I both attended the public school system and taught in it as well. My husband was homeschooled, and we just feel like it's the best fit for our family both for individualizing education and also doing what we feel like is best for our children in terms of their well-being. I am very much looking forward to it.

We have a ten year age gap between my son and my daughter then a 14 month age gap between my daughter and youngest son. The small age gap is my favourite. Although it's lovely to have big bro around to help. The few people who know we are trying think we are insane, but we can't wait.

I will have to have a section this time. I'm nervous and it did put me off ttc but I know it's for the best. My last son was born in 30 minutes at 9lbs2. Snapped my coccyx and left me with third degree tears and a torn cervix. I also have suffered with bad PTSD since. How have you found c sections? Is recovery hard?

That's lovely! We have lots of Homeschooling friends in America. Hoping to emigrate one day ourselves. Hopefully within the next few years. Home education isn't that popular over here, I feel a move to be surrounded by more likeminded people would be best for our family.

Any crazy symptoms yet? Tonight I've had some very odd cramping and stabbing cervix pains. Unusual at this point in my cycle but in my head I keep telling myself That it's too early.

I'm going to pre apologize for any oddities in this response because I am actually using a voice to text function on my phone instead of trying to type it out.

Before I comment on what this thread is actually intended for, homeschooling is not that popular here either. The general consensus around where I live is that homeschoolers have no social skills and go to school in their pajamas. I reckon it depends on what area one is from as to what sort of response you get. But, I'm also speaking to more of a stigma surrounding homeschooling and not necessarily acceptance as a whole. I will say many public school educators are not a fan, and that is from personal experience. I am a stay-at-home mom now, but my coworkers scoffed at the idea when I mentioned my interest in homeschooling my own children. But whatever. You got to do what you Gotta do.

Regarding the C-section: the C-section was not that bad. In fact, my most recent verse had far more troubling issues than my C-section such as mastitis, Norovirus, strep throat, and a few other sicknesses all within my first month with the new baby. It's not horrible; it is however major abdominal surgery. I would wager it is much better than the experience you just described! It's really not bad.

Is it really sharp sharp lightning feeling pains?

Even after last birth I'd still be keen to avoid the section but my consultant said it's for the best. I carry gbs too which wouldn't be an issue if I had slower labours but as they are too fast for antibiotics it's dangerous. My youngest son almost died from sepsis as spent weeks in intensive care so I know in my head a section is the right thing even though the thought scares me.

Yes, that totally describes it. Really sharp painful twinges. Is it even possible to get symptoms this early? It can't be right? Am I mad to be symptom spotting so soon?

Well, I don't think you and I will be very good for each other if you want me to talk sense into you. They before yesterday I was having those actually in my boobs and yesterday in the area you were describing. I have found it online lovingly referred to as lightning crotch. however, I have none of it today. So the optimist in me wants to say yes it could be something. The pessimist in me says: yeah it's just your monthly cycle

And the reason it excites me is because both of those things I experience with both of my other pregnancies

I'm glad it's not just me experiencing it. Makes me feel less crazy I haven't had them in The tww as a symptom but I've experienced them after a bfp. I'm grasping at straws but it's going in my diary as a symptom lol

Are you lightheaded at all? I've been super woozy. I don't know why, but I know I'm not making it up. Could just be hormones in general

Im anaemic so lightheadedness is pretty standard for me. But if it's unusual for you then that's a good sign! I promised myself I'd be super relaxed this cycle. Didn't even make it past 4 days without turning into a crazy symptom spotter.
