Hi Laura!
i am nervous because i love my little boy so much and cant imagine being able to love another one the same. i know i will but its hard to picture him not being the centre of the whole family's attetion do you know what i mean?
maybe everyone feels this way after their first?!

but i know i want another and do not want a huge age gap (7 yrs between me and my sister and we weren't close growing up).
However Oscar is a very demanding baby so god knows how i'd cope with two lol

xx

we're starting to ttc in september/october really hoping for a summer baby, really nervous about everything I worried about the last time we were ttc plus the added dread of labour

trollydolly I know how you feel, I can't imagine there being another baby in the house or me loving anyone more than I love lo

Vaniila I'm glad someone feels the same, i sometimes think maybe we should not have another and devote all our time to oscar but i dont want to suddenly want another in 4/5 years and be wising id dne it sooner! i just wouldnt want a huge age gap.
it's so hard to know whats best! but i guess thats the joys of parenting.

our babys are so close in age!

I really hope we have a summer baby too, but like you, it all really worries me! My OH only loosely gave September as our TTC date and i'm more worried that he'll change his mind come the end of the year, but also just the whole process. I'm not sure why but I've always had a gut feeling that my first pregnancy will not go to plan, that there will be some form of problem. Ahh, just me worrying i think!

Hiya, we are planning to TTC in September also. Although if truth be told I would like to try sooner! I have also been feeling EXACALLY the same way, I'm convinced there will be a problem or it will take a long time to conceive. fingers crossed that both of us are just worrying for no reason! x

I am SOOO relieved that I'm not the only one that feels this way! I really was starting to think I was just a little bit crazy.. I too am just convinced that things will not go smoothly, that I will have to fight for a normal pregnancy and a happy birth. I'm not sure where the fears come from really! I will keep my fingers crossed for you hunny

My OH only 'loosely' agreed to September as our TTC date. His reaction was 'isn't that a little too soon'. I followed it up with the fact it MIGHT not happen that fast and it might take a while due to my irregular periods (secretly hoping it happens right away..), and we left it at that. I've not said much more after that really.

Then today I messaged him (he's away at the moment), and explained that I thought sooner rather than later would be so much better in our situation, due to not having any major commitments like mortgage or rent (living at home where the bills are all covered before I arrived), and we could afford for me to take extra maternity leave from work. Where as if we waited for the length of time he would LIKE to wait we'll have our house then and things will be tougher!

After telling him all of that he said we'll talk about it better when he's next here. Which is progress! I really do think this wait till September will be soo so so hard! I wonder if this thread will still be around then! x

I know what you mean and I've considered waiting until Rowan starts school to try for another one but there are many more pluses to having a small gap, they'll be closer, they'll be able to go to the same school for a while and support each other, they'll be able to play with each other etc

yea! our lo's are really close in age hopefully we both get our bfps in autumn asap!

I hope your oh sticks to his guns and goes with september, or sooner things never go to plan but that doesn't mean that its a bad thing, I had a pretty awful labour with lo but here I am, still the biggest chicken in the planet wtt no2, worrying in unavoidable sadly, its just part of the process


I'm already feeling impatient! it took us 5 cycles to get a and know that it could any given amount of time this time round, January is dragging so slow! feels like autumn is never going to get here

hello ladies. Trolly dolly you took the words right out of my mouth. I said exactly that to my OH the other day. Well we have started NTNP. I dont think i will get my BFP straight away so if nothing by September than we will start using softcups ect which is how i got my BFP last time.
Its nice that there are a few of us with babs so close in age.

It took me 3 years to get pregnant with my son so the sme as you girls i have worries its going to take as long this time around.
