It's really cold here right now. We're curled up on the couch under blankets watching TV. DH and I talked about WTT goals and he wants $10,000 in savings before TTC. It's not impossible but we'll definitely be WTT until at least next year. I just hope it's not any longer than October.
I know what you mean about figuring out where to put the 3rd baby lol! Yours definitely sounds like it would be just as much work as ours would be. I def agree about moving your oldest two into a room together until you can put baby #3 with either DD or DS depending on gender of baby. That was the plan for us if we were going to wait a little longer to try for baby #3 but right now I definitely could not put my 2yo and my youngest in a room together. My DD likes to stay up in her crib and play around for a bit until she falls asleep. Plus she has night terrors at times where she wakes up screaming so I would not want to interrupt my DS sleep lol.
Right now we have a 4 bedroom house, but the last bedroom is a guest room for when my MIL comes to visit us throughout the year. So what I was thinking (and I've already been pining ideas lol )was to make the nursery into like a guest room/nursery type thing. So decorate it like a nursery but also have the guestbed there for when MIL comes to stay with us when baby is born since baby sleeps in our room for a few months anyways. I'll just find some bedding for the guest bed that matches the style of the nursery. Then when my oldest two can share a room (or when baby #3 shares a room with either DD or DS depending on gender) I'll make the guest room back into just the guest room again. Soooo much work lol
Can I join? I am very sad to be back in the wtt stage again. I am hoping to TTC in June again. We had miscarriage in Feb 2016 and then got pregnant again right away. Our DD was born unexpectedly 31 weeks in October with a rare genetic condition and sadly only lived for a week.
We are WTT while we greive and wait for our doctors to make a gameplan for us.
Laroawan ordinarily I would be ecstatic to be back in WTT with you but I am so sorry about the circumstances that have brought us back together. I'm incredibly sorry for your losses, my heart is breaking for you.
Rowan is a beautiful name for your angel girl, it was actually my boy name for a long time but DH vetoed it when we were pregnant with DS.
I put you down under June 2017 for Baby #2. Let me know if anything changes or should be added. I really hope that your doctors are able to make a solid game plan for you and that you get your rainbow baby this time around.
We're renting a 3 bedroom house right now but I'm hoping to buy a 4 bedroom house at some point in the future. We have a similar set-up for what you're thinking in DD's room but we don't use the double bed as a guest bed. I sleep in it right now and co-sleep part-time with DD. Here are some pictures of DD's nursery. I was given free reign by DH to design the whole thing myself since he got to pick the theme for DS's room and I'm very proud of the job I did with it.
The pictures are from when we were still pregnant and the crib bumpers were only put on for pictures, I didn't feel comfortable leaving them. They came with the bedding set so we didn't have the option of not buying them. We also don't have the newborn insert in the car seat anymore, the Pack 'n Play is now in the living room for her to play in while I do housework and Nibbles the squirrel is in her toy bucket. We use Nibbles as a prop for every monthly photo.
Thanks ladies! Admittedly Nibbles wasn't our idea, it's what the company that made the nursery bedding and whatnot named the squirrel.
How are you all doing? DH and I talked more about it and we set some goals, mostly financial on DH's end and personal goals (like starting on my degree and losing weight) on my end. DH admitted that the reason he isn't more positive about the idea of a 3rd child is that he's afraid that we won't be able to support a 3rd baby or something will happen to prevent us from having another and he doesn't want to be disappointed. He'd rather go into it thinking it won't happen and be pleasantly surprised if it does. In the meantime I'm choosing to be the positive one and do everything I can to meet our WTT goals.
