is it me? or is WTT harder than TTC?


i find myself looking at the calendar EVERYDAY, wishing it was TIME.
resting a hand on my (not so flat stomach) thinking about ''what could be''.
wondering whether the timing is right.
is the timing ever right?
i find that you cope the best you can regardless of the age gaps you are faced with.
however i do quite like the age gap we had with TJ and Ron, though i do wonder what it would be like with a 4yo a 2yo and a newborn.
is there anybody out there with these gaps???
do you know anyone? xxx

whats more frustrating is... ''i still havent had an AF since the cycle before i got my BFP with my 7 month old son, so i cant even temp or start doing Ovulation tests to look for cycle patterns to help save time TTC''.

so JULY would be our TIME to TTC.

Hey there, we were pregnant at the same time! We'll be TTC in July as well And yes, I find it hard to wait... But we need to for various reasons. I'm still nursing and pumping (went back to work) so not even sure I'm ovulating. I am using Nuvaring now for contraception, and before starting it I think I did have a "real" AF visit. Planning on stopping it in March, and charting in April, May and June...

ah hi there.well i hope to see you in TTC in july then.
we were told to wait a year before trying because of me having a csection with the last labour.
i would love to breastfeed till ron turns a year old but if i am not ovulating because of the breastfeeding TTC in july wont be possible.
i am thinking about doing a little research on ovulation during nursing.
i thought there were lots of factors to consider when TTC your second but this is rediculous.
if i know my body right (and it does what it did last time)... i wont start my AF till 3 months after i stop breastfeeding.
which means stopping when ron turns 9 months.
this is truly wrecking my head! lol

I had a C-section too and in Canada the recommendation is waiting 6 months :-) Strange how it can be so different from one place to the other! My friend got pregnant accidentally 3 months after a section and everything was fine.

I know what you mean, I really don't want to stop nursing until she's a year old either. And if I weighed both the nursing and the ovulating, then the nursing wins, sigh... BUT one can ovulate while nursing as well, even without AF around so, if you don't use contraception, it's always possible to get pregnant while nursing!

We finally agreed on a date to start trying - MAY. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about everyday, all day long. I've waited to long...

hehehee.
it does take over your life.
and when you finally get to your TTC date the waiting begins all over again, except you only have a2WW before a 9M wait. lol

Hi cinnamum.
I have those age gaps between my three. My little boy is just four, my little girl is two and a half and I have an 8 week old baby girl. Its fine honestly. They keep us busy but we are really enjoying it. It helps that my eldest is in pre-school five mornings a week and the middle one is there two mornings. When I have all 3 on my own I do look forward to my husband getting home!!
I really want one more tho, just have to convince my mum that she would love to look after four when I'm at work!!
