Me and df have just had a beautiful baby girl but want to have a short age gap with babies and hopefully have a total of 3 or 4, and as I am already 30 and it took almost 2 years for us to have baby number 1, we are ttc again as soon as we can.
As I had an EMCS I've been advised to wait until baby is 1 year old before ttc again so that's what we are doing!
Anyone else WTT for baby number 2 in 2014? Or just WTT til 2014 whatever baby number?!
Would be nice to chat and to keep each other sane, reminding ourselves why we are waiting!
You have a beautiful daughter.
I gave birth to my miracle baby boy two and a half months ago and I can't wait to start TTC no.2. It also took us two years to get pregnant and we might not be successful again. But we're hoping for the best.
I had an easy birth so we'll start NTNP sometime around October, when our boy will be 6 months old.
Our baby is perfect and we're so lucky to have him!
I would also like to chat till TTC again.
Katie your little boy is gorgeous too!! Such a little cutie!!
Me and my df were NTNP for a few months before getting pregnant, sadly we lost that baby and then 3 months later got our 2nd bfp with Emilia!
A little part of me isn't convinced that I wouldn't miscarry again and so that's another reason why I don't want to wait too long......not getting any younger here lol!!!
Do you miss being pregnant? I don't think I miss all the aches and pains etc etc but I miss the kicks and movements. And I do actually miss my bump!! Never thought I would!
So I'm currently reminding myself of the things I can do for now whilst I am not pregnant lol, my favourite being eating pâté yum lol!!
I miss being pregnant terribly. It was an amazing experience for me. I was nauseous and threw up till 16 weeks, had a huge scare in my 14th week due to a bleeding (turned out to be caused by DTD ), always afraid something might go wrong... But still... The nausea reassured me that pregnancy was progressing and in spite of all my worries I believed it would turn out fine.
I absolutely loved my bump (it was tiny even at the end) and I still miss the movements. He was a serious kicker. I didn't gain any extra weight, got no stretch marks, felt normal till the end and had a really short and easy delivery. And got my darling boy at the end.
I'm sorry you lost your first baby. But you have your little Emilia instead. And she's such a cutie! Why did you have an EMCS? Was she premature?
No she was actually spot on time, it was me that was the problem lol! I was showing signs of pre-eclampsia and it was the day before my due date so at midnight they broke my waters and put me on the pitocin drip (horrendous!!). After 15 hours of labour and an hour of pushing she still wasn't coming, my blood pressure was sky high and her heartrate started to drop dramatically so they took me for the c section and she was born at 4.13pm on her due date lol.
It wasn't a pleasant birth experience but mainly due to the induction drip, not because of the c section. I actually didn't mind that. I just wish I could have held her first but they over-numbed me and my left arm was completely numb too lol!!
It was nice for df to get to hold her first though.
Sorry you had such bad morning sickness. I didn't have any! But that caused me to worry more coz I thought it was a sign I would miscarry again.
I had a scare too and had a bleed at 20 weeks, but never found out the cause.
Ouch, that must have been painful. I know I was extremely lucky. I was thinking of using epidural but there was no time. Jakob was born 2 hrs after we arrived to the hospital.
As much as I'm looking forward to TTC again, I'm also very afraid. I have high FSH and that means my chances to conceive are extremely low and chances for miscarriage are very high if I do. But maybe we'll get lucky twice?
It's very possible you will be lucky twice Hun, is there anything that you can do to help your fertility? Sorry I don't know much about FSH levels.
I love that new avatar!! What a cutie!!
And I did have the epidural after a couple of hours on the drip, I thought I was dying lol!! I always thought I had a high threshold for pain but I couldn't bear it. There seemed to be no build up if the contractions, they just came on so suddenly and intensely.
It's a shame to think I may not ever have a natural birth now, but you never know.
