The planning stage


Hi

I am new to this section. The first time I joined was when I pregnant with my first child. She is now nearly 14 months old and a fab little girl.

I am now wanting to have another one, however I need to wait until she is at least 3 before my second is 9mths and ready to go to nursery as my daughter will get 15 free hours then.

So that means I can start trying in September 2011 but I am desperate to start again. Whenever I have a free moment all I can do is think about getting pregnant, I am literally obsessed. I wish I could just relax and think natuarlly about it but I am such a controlling person and want to control every aspect of it. I really do not know why I feel like this but it is driving me mad.

I know I am extremely lucky to have my little girl and am torn as to waiting till she is older to have another but my partner is quite a bit older than me and I don't actually want a big age gap between the two children. I am one of three children with 3 and 2 years between us and I am quite close to my siblings and want the same for my children. We are only planning on having 2 due to cost but would love more.

Another thing that concerns me is if I feel like this now and are able (god willing) to have another one, how will I feel when I cannot have anymore? Will this incomplete feeling go? I really do hope so!

Anyway, sorry for the long introduction but I just wanted to get it off my chest!

Good luck to everyone in there journey!

I know exacty where you're coming from! My LO was born on Xmas Eve 2009, so is only a couple fo weeks behind yours, and I am so ready to try again! I also wonder about that feeling! We have just bought a 5 bed house, and are planning on having 3 childre, but I am wondering if, knowing that there is room for 1 more - I'm gonna feel complete! Who knows! Lol! I htink we're gonna try in the summer sometime - anytime after April, cos I don't think we can afford another December baby! Lol! But realistically I would say June, July or August!

Yes not long behind my little girl at all! Yes I am working on a June/July/August baby maybe very early September depending on when I Ov. Also turn 4 straight to school!!!

Wow a Christmas Eve baby, how lovely!

I have 4 nephews with one born 18th December and one in November so the family definitely could do with out another December baby to say the least!

Thanks for the understanding and taking the time to respond.

All the best, hopefully we will see each in 1st Tri!

Aw, my lo is only 7 months old but I'd happily start trying now! We're waiting until she's 10 months old instead though so not too long but long enough!

But I know what you mean about wondering if that feeling of wanting more will ever go away. We plan on having 2 or 3, but I can't imagine after having the last one having to think right that's it, no more babies ever! I really hope the feeling of wanting more goes away because otherwise I don't think I'd be able to stop, the broodiness and longing for a baby is too overwhelming!

i would love to start ttc now as well but its really not practical and we would struggle having 2 at the moment i have to take into account the fact that i could be ill again and have 12 weeks off work (like with my first) so we need to be in a good place financially and ive only just gone back to work and my manager has been fantastic (was great during my last pregnancy) and it sounds daft but i dont want to let him down, he has just put me in for a promotion as im now working at a level above my current title.

so i will have to content myself and babysit for my friends (due 25th feb) and my bil who is due 11july
