That excited feeling-March 2018!


Anybody else got that excited feeling to get going?!

This will be #2 for us with our DS turning 5 in April-itís just dawned on me today with severe ovulation pains that we only have 2 periods left before TTC!

Is anyone else starting TTC around that time?

Hello! I’m planning to ttc in April, so I’m right behind you! I have an iud right now, my midwife said I coul try to conceive immediately after removal, so I’ll be getting it removed at the end of March. This will also be #2 for us, DS is 20 months old.

Hi,
We're traveling to the Dominican Republic end of March for my 30th, considering ttc #2 upon our return. However we've been told to wait at least 6months before trying due to Zika so really don't know if it will be April or October. Our DD will be 4 in July.

We're also waiting to get back from a vacay to Mexico before starting on #2, which would be the end of March! I thought I had read the recommendations said 2 months if you don't feel sick/fever after returning, 6 months if any signs of illness?

--> https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2...endations.html

I told DH we'd be diligent about watching for illness, but otherwise we'll go with the 2 month mark. Which is a tough choice but I work in this field and feel comfortable with the recommendations.

It's #2 for us, and our DD#1 is 16 months. Sticking to the BC until we're back from the holiday just for the Zika risk, and then it's no holds bared! A little nervous bc we conceived in 3 cycles last time, and I almost wouldn't mind it taking a little longer this time...just cause I like the BD'ing Staring at my last 2 backs of BC like..."Wow. This is it!".

I thought it was 2 months for women but 6 months for men? According to the Centers for Disease Control 'CDC' (The CDC recommends that women who travel to areas with Zika who want to get pregnant in the near future wait at least eight weeks after their last possible exposure to the virus before trying to conceive. For male partners, the CDC advises waiting six months after the last possible exposure before trying to conceive. Using condoms is also recommended for the waiting period.)
If its been reduced to 2 month then that fantastic news. Zika isnt not really reported on alot any more in the UK so am not sure at all.

I think we are going to go for #3 in another month or two - surely a sign that I have lost what little mind I had!

Ugh, Bumblebee, you're right That sucks hugely. We still test for it here, and I heard that there's been far fewer cases this past year.

My colleagues do the testing and write the guidelines (I've been on mat leave since they changed the guidance), so I feel like it's not even an option to not listen to the guidance. How am I gonna explain it when my name shows up on a test form?? Ugh. Feel like this is ruining all my TTC plans Stupid zika. Thanks for pointing that out to me.

We’re thinking of starting TTC #3 in May! I’m so excited to start! My youngest was born New Years Day and I was so worried he was going to come at Christmas, so we’re trying to skip that time of year this time. Both kids took nearly 18 months if TTC though so you never know, I might end up with another almost Christmas baby anyway!
