I hear you on not looking forward to it. I've always wanted a big family too and want to have one more to round it out but I'm not looking to the first 3-4 months because of severe morning sickness. TTC is very stressful for me too. I have PCOS and it gets frustrating having annovulatory cycle after annovulatory cycle. I hope it happens quickly for all of us. Fx
I'm right there with you ladies! I don't mind TTC as it's actually kind of exciting and DH and I catch very quickly but pregnancy sucks and I'm afraid of how hard it's going to be with 2 LOs to look after. I had debilitating morning sickness with both of my babies from 6-21 weeks. Literally 24/7 nausea and it took everything I had not to throw up even with the help of meds. Some days I'd throw up 3, 4, or even 5 times in that one day, usually if I forgot to renew my meds before I ran out. I'm also nervous about being so outnumbered. I grew up in a very big family and I want a somewhat big family myself but it's still a little scary to think about. I have to keep reminding myself that my kids will be older and more independent than they are right now. Part of me considered starting this year for a similar age gap to what my DS and DD have but it just feels too soon, DD still feels like a baby to me and I also feel like it hasn't been long enough since I had her for me to start trying for another yet. Hopefully I (and DH) will feel more ready next year.
Hi! Were wtt for #3 in june. I have a boy and girl and considering being team yellow for the next....which id never ever thought id even consider! Im actually dreading the whole thing! I want a big family and i want a 2 - 3 year age gap but hate ttc, being pregnant, and the first 3 months! After that i love it! I feel like i just had my baby and crazy to think well be starting again soon. It took me 10 months to get pregnant with landon. 1 month with chelsea (mmc). And 3 months with hadleigh. So who knows how long itll actually take. Im still bfing for another weeknor so then done. My cycles hage returned but super short. I typically have 35 day cycles and they have been around 20. So trying to not get pregnant right now! Decided to start getting my brain thinking about #3 and trying to get broody! Oh how i hate pregnancy!!!!! Oh and i want to lose 5-10 lbs to get back to prepregnancy weight.
we have a 1 month - 1 month - 3 months track record so I'm hoping for 1 or 2 months this time... it's actually a bit stressful because my baby is a 2015 baby and I only want them 2 years apart in school!! So if it takes us longer than 2 months we'll most likely have a 2018 baby making them 3 years apart :/
Oh and B vitamins always helped lengthened my cycles personally, after breastfeeding was done and after a mc.
I didn't purposefully make a resolution but I purchased a clean eating meal plan. Lots of meals with wild rice, beans, eggs, lean meats and lots of veggies. Tons of snacks too! Retraining my taste buds to like natural foods... anyways we started that yesterday. Not a resolution but we're trying it for a month before deciding what to keep ans what works for us and what not...
