Hi all! Just wanted to pop in. Congrats to those who are expecting and good luck to those who are trying!

Im sorry I haven't been on much. I've been struggling lately with the idea of Calvin being our last baby. I think I've come to terms with not being pregnant again but can't let go of not having a newborn to snuggle anymore. I know it's been harder lately because Calvin is about to move into his own room and for me that means he's an infant and not a newborn now. Thankfully we have a long time.before we need to make that final decision. I'm just trying to prepare myself in case we don't go through it all again. Because of all of that, it's been hard being gone the boards seeing people waiting and pregnant etc. But it's getting easier so I thought it would be a good time to jump back on

Hope everyone is doing well! Any fun plans for the upcoming weekend? I'm taking Calvin on his first road trip to visit.my parents. My mom had surgery a few weeks ago so I'm going in to help out around the house for a few days. Going to leave Charles at home with Ben.

Kaity - I totally understand how you're feeling and where you're coming from, especially now that DD is a toddler. It's so hard for me to come to terms with the idea of never having a baby again. I've never really cared for pregnancy, just the baby stage. Of course the excitement of the whole process is a plus. Lately I've really been going back and forth on whether it's a good idea to have another or not. I keep weighing the pros and cons and wondering if I'm just going to be right back in this situation again if I have another, like I'm afraid I'll never feel "done" with having babies and that's what makes me wonder if it's really worth it to have another one. Even if I decide not to go for #3 I'll still keep up with this thread for all of the ladies that are WTT/TTC this year and next year. I think a lot of my decision is going to be based on what DH ultimately decides. He seems to flip flop a lot but most of his concerns appear to be financial. I think if money was no object he might even want to start trying now.

CD1 for me today, AF showed a couple of days sooner than expected. I'm hoping it means that my cycles will normalize without having to wean DD since they haven't been as erratic as they were when I was breastfeeding DS. So far my cycles have been 34 days, 32 days, 32 days, and this last one was 30 days. My normal cycles are 28 days so not that far off from being normal again. One cycle closer to our date!

I feel you BrittneyAnne. One of my younger sisters is pregnant with her first, a baby , and I'm both looking forward to meeting my niece in July and not looking forward to it at the same time because I know I'm going to feel sooooo broody when I hold that little squish that I'll probably cry.
It's so much harder waiting now that I don't have the "I still have a baby" reason to justify it anymore. DD is looking less and less like a baby and more and more like a toddler by the day, it was so much easier when she was still a super dependent little bitty baby. It also doesn't help that DS is such a big boy now. Potty training, learning to write and counting, only one year left with him at home before he goes off to preschool, ect.

Yeah, I tried to stop looking at so many baby things again but today I fell back. I've been on interest most of the afternoon looking at articles.

Waiting!


Hi! I just joined this group tonight!
I'm so nervous and excited as I wait to try and I'm not telling my family yet so I need someone to talk with. My fiancÚ and I are getting married at the end of the year and we are hoping to try right after! On one hand, I desperately want to try ASAP, on the other, I want to wait to conceive in December so I can have a September baby!

Any advice for staying patient and for the best time to remove IUD before trying? I've heard different responses from doctor to doctor and also friends!

Hoping I can use this forum to chat throughout my entire experience!

Welcome JennP! Good question about the KID. I have one and I'm not sure when I'm going to get it removed. Probably a few months before we try.

I'm just a little worried about what my periods will look like if I take it out before the wedding. With the IUD, they're 10-15 days, but light... without it, they're usually 10-15 days but a bit heavier and irregular. So I can't decide if I want to keep it to avoid any mishaps on my wedding day and honeymoon, or if I should go for it to get it moving out of my system. Decisions decisions... I've heard mixed things about waiting 1 -2 cycles before trying vs trying right away!

Hello and welcome JennP!
I put you under December 2017 for Baby #1. Please let me know if anything needs to be added or changed.

Unfortunately I can't help with the IUD as I've never had one and haven't been on hormonal birth control in 5 years.
