Hoping for '2 under two'


Hi,
Id like to join you here if I may

I have a gorgeous 9 month old little boy, and we're hoping to start ttc No.2 in Summer 2011 (aka this Summer!). The reason we're waiting is because I had an emergency c-sec with LO, and was told to wait a year. We're also waiting because, excited as I am, I want to mentally prepare for pregnancy and having a newborn again, and also enjoy an occasional bit of freedom (with the help of babysitting in-laws) as well. By this I mean being able to have e.g. a glass of wine on a holiday, or the odd night out visiting friends.

So that's me, just thought Id say hello. Id be especially interested in hearing from anyone else wanting to conceive another LO with a close age gap to the first xx

Hiya!

I'm with you on wanting a close age gap!

I had my little girl Summer in July last year, also by emergency c section (I was told to wait 6 months). She's 8 months old now and we plan to start ttc number 2 in May when she'll be 10 months old.

I conceived Summer on our first month of trying so IF (and I know it's a big if) we conceived right away again Summer would potentially be 19/20 months when the new baby arrived. Even if it took a few months to fall pregnant hopefully we'd have 2 under 2 or one just over 2!

Whereabouts in the south west are you?

Welcome to wtt by the way! Lol!

Thanks
Its funny isnt it, people get told different lengths of waiting time after emergency cs. Ive met some people who were told 6 months, and some who were told a year like me...very curious!
I am in Tetbury, so same county. Whereabouts are you in Glos?
It took me 11 months to conceive LO, but I have a feeling it might be quicker with number 2 (feels like my body is in pregnancy mode still?). Hope Im right, as Im 38 now so time is not on my side...
Good luck to us both! xx

Yeah I know, I've heard people who have even been told to wait up to 2 years after a c section. But then I also know of people who have fallen pregnant only weeks after one and things were fine. It all seems to depend on your hospital and doctor!

Oh wow, you aren't far from me at all. I know tetbury I'm in wotton under edge!

Although I'm a bit younger than you (29 this year) I'm always concious of my age and that clock ticking! I always imagined I'd have my kids done and dusted before I was 30 and hopefully the next one will be although I know hubby is keen on having 3 so I'd definitley be into my 30's before I have a third!

They do say quite often it's easier to fall pregnant second time around as your body has done it before and now knows what to do so fingers crossed for both of us when the time comes!

We are going to TTC#2 around the end of July/beginning of Aug. My LO will be 9 mos old at that time. DH and both would like our kiddies to be close in age so hopefully we can concieve pretty quickly so I can be in the group of "2 under 2"

best of luck to you!

I'll join in if I may, I've got a ds who is 9months and we are wtt prob summer 2011 too so hoping for the 2 under 2!! (we're crazy right??!!) we conceived 3 months after actively trying but we didn't dtd all the time, and I am of a very laid back approach. I have no idea what people are talking about when they chart or temp, I just know about when I should be testing...

I've got a cyst on one of my ovaries which was found during my first scan with Dylan, which the doctors claim is preggo related, but since I've never had a scan before pregnancy you never know... and in the back of my mind I'd like to start ttc sooner than later in case it causes any problems.... I'd like to lose a little bit more weight first before actively ttc... but if it happened sooner than later I wouldn't be dissapointed!

SO hello future bump buddies??

It'd be nice if we could get the chance to all be future bump buddies together!

You never know!
