    Hi Ladies :wave: is anyone else TTC#2 very soon after #1. Just started this month as LO is 9 weeks. It took us over 4 years to conceive him so trying to take full advantage of the increased fertility after birth. I know its going to be tough but I really want him to have a sibling that is a similar age :) looking for buddies going on a similar journey because I know its going to be tough and people are going to judge :winkwink:

    I completely understand my DS just turned 10 months, and we're really hoping to give him a sibling that he can be close in age with. He is our only child as of now, and we tried for over 2 years before we were finally blessed with him. I completely understand the fertility struggles, and I only wish you the best.

    Hi lemely
    I just tested bfn...my skin has been breaking out since o pain...I used to have such beautiful skin before that...that made me test ...I think I m 4 days from af but I stopped bf last mth so anythinf xan happen...I don't think I oed when I thought I did...we haven't had a chance to bd since after the assumed fertile window...I trained my first one to sleep in nursery but usually my oh or i.end up bringing him to bed...plus oh likes to sleep late n doesn't sleep.much whereas I need my 8hrs...I dread dtd phase as timing stresses oh out n me too coz I have to work ard him and his mood...I know there are some men who ll dtd daily but my oh isn't into it...I think it has to do with my weight gain so I m working out hoping to get in shape...we have been married 5yrs and dtd can become a chore when trying for baby ...it is hardly coz we are in a mood...my oh has diabetes too...I also think men have their own wiring...they say they want a baby but are lazy to put efforts and the pressure falls on woman...I m.turning 35 in august and really would like to conceieve before than...

    I know what you mean jannah ive been married 5 years too and whilst i was pregnant my oh wasnt intertested in dtd at all, its been difficult to encourage him at the right times and with the lo I have to slot it between his naps :wacko: ive been getting into a routine of getting Lo back to sleep at 7am so i have an half hour slot before oh goes to work but its difficult. :winkwink:

    ..my oh is tired at night or cuddling with our son. ..in the morning, he is either trying to sleep or say he has work...after work usually laptop n tv...I have yet to find the secret to turn him on...some pPl say not to tell then it's fertile time aND just get them in mood...I have tried that...doesn't work...I even tell him few days before that fertile window is coming to dtd atleast 2 times during that. ..that becomes very stressful too...I m thinking instead of pushing him, let my next few cycles give me a pattern so I can work ard it and make sure my son is in crib and I keep oh happy n pampered...rt now it is just hit or miss...
    Gluck#!

    Can I join ur group? I have a 10 month old and have been trying for #2 for 5 months. We conceived our son through IUI after almost 2 years of fertility treatments. Hoping it goes smother this time but I'm 38 so don't want to waste any time. Just got referred to specialist.

    Last cycle I was 5 days late, thought for,sure it had happened but no....it's still a bummer getting this AFs. I totally get it lemely.

    Welcome Lamago :wave: hopefully the clingy phase will pass with your lo jannah. Im going to try agnus castus this month because i think it might be that my hormones are still out of whack giving me a slightly shorter lp fingers crossed xxx

    Welcome lamago!
    I m sorry to disappear lemely
    I started school on Friday and I am already week behind. ..I m also looking into starting to work
    I don't want to stop reaching my goals in life coz of ttc which I did first time around...
    Other than that according to my app, I am 4 days from my fertile window...I m going to just bd when oh n I m in mood and our son is not stressing us out...I just don't wanna be crazy like my last cycle...
    I also picked up reading n workout and started club at my home....
    I hope I can motivate other women here who are struggling with ttc and hope that they continue succeed in all phases of life not just motherhood :)
