There is quite a few threads for people wttc their first or second babies and I thought it would be good to set one up for us ladies (possibly crazy ladies) wttc baby number three!
We could discuss our hopes, excitement, nerves and worries about this new adventure and share tips. Hopefully this thread will graduate with us onto ttc, then the pregnancy threads and then the parenting one!
To introduce myself, I am Poppy, mum of two boys; Tristan (4) and Brannon (2) and we are hoping to start ttc around August this year. I am 35 years old and am a part time teacher in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Looking forward to meeting other mums wttc baby number three.
Oh I do like this idea! I never get to join in on the chat threads case we don't have a definite trying month or anything, but I think I'll fit in this one!
I'm sarah and I have a DD who is 4 and a half and a DS who will be 3 in October. I would start NTNP next month if I had it my way, but DH is not on board yet. Sigh. Lol! I'm 31 and I work in admin part time from home.
Hello ! I'm Stacey and I have been married to DH since 2007. I'm 30 and I have my two precious boy's Gabriel 4 and Jacob 18 months. We are planning to start TTC # 3 in August 2014. Some day's I think I'm crazy, but I have always wanted 3 (I am one of 3), and there is this deep down feeling that I can't explain that we just aren't done yet .
Nice meeting you Poppy and it's nice you fit in here sausages!
Hi ladies! Can I join you?! My name is Jen. I'm from Kelowna BC(Canada)...I have 2 kids Noah(almost 4yrs) and my daughter Isla (11 months).
We are going to TTC starting in August just like you Poppy!
I think I may be a little crazy lol...we live in a 2 bdrm house, and we're already low on space...but our hearts are so full of joy with 2 little ones, can't imagine not having another!!
Hey Stacey and Jen! Stacey, I'm like you, one of three and I always thought I'd have three children, to me, this seems a normal family size as it's what I grew up with. My DH is one of two, so he took a bit of convincing to go for another one. He has only really been 100% onboard recently.
I am like, you, I don't feel 'done' yet, I still feel that there is yet to come another member of the family. Some of my friends have two and they feel their family is complete but I don't have that feeling yet, it's so difficult a feeling to explain to someone who doesn't feel that,way - my best mate (and mum of two) thinks I am crazy to go for a third. It's good to come on here and chat to others who feel the same way! Sometimes, especially with two busy boys, I do feel a bit mad that I am going to be adding to the chaos and maybe about changing the dynamic in the family but I do have the deep down feeling that another one will complete my family.
It is just when to start ttc. We are thinking of ttc in August. We want to sell our house and move first but are thinking of possibly push it back to October and go on holiday somewhere abroad in the October holidays. What are your opinions on flying when pregnant? I will be 36 in September and don't want to leave things too late. I do feel blessed to have my two little boys and if we couldn't have another, I suppose I would just have to accept it but I definitely want to try for another wee baby.
