    Im going mad with waiting. We have been trying since july, with lo it took a while and seeing fertility doctor. This month im going mad. I felt ovulation and know we timed right, 5 days later i felt cramps, i have had lower stomach and back pain, head aches, increased cervical mucas and i want to find out its not all in my head, af is due 15th. Mint is bothering me to which is a smell i couldent stand in first pregnancy. Is any one else doing 2 ww? Im really hoping it wont take as long conceiving this time and would be nice age difference and know lo would love a sibling. I feel incredibly blessed to have lo and hope we can give her a much wanted sibling

    My LO turned 2 on the 1st of October, the only thing i worry about whilst ttc is that he will be upset by having to share my attention when another baby comes along.

    My son will turn 2 in January, we just started trying for #2 last month so this is only our second cycle. But last month i had some abnormal bleeding and went to the doctor. Turns out I have multiple cysts on my ovaries, yet my doctor isn't concerned this will affect our chances of conceiving, and he put me on prenatal vitamins. Really worried that having these cysts will affect my fertility (I'm nervous and scared, not going to lie), I really want to give my son a sibling

    We're TTC #2 casually- just dtd lots. However, i'm obsessing over it already yet there's no rush for us. So frustrating and we've only been TTC for a week! :)

    Hi hopeful! :wave:
    You had fertility drugs with first didn't you? We got lucky and it only took us 4 months with Theo so I'm hoping it'll be the same thus time x

    To you too bex.

    Is it true that it's easier to conceive second time round?

    Yeah I was on clomid, I'm starting it again this month along with metformin.

    Our godson was over the other day he is 9.5 months older than Jace and they play so beautifully together!

    Has anything changed since?
    Gained weight? More alcohol/ smoking/ bad diet? Been hit in the boys? Changed jobs- too much time sitting / driving overheats them

    Well it took 8/9 months to conceive ds1 so I think he's always been low. Nothing's changed though! He's taken anabolic steroids for bodybuilding for about 8 years so I think that has definitely been a major factor!! He's off them now thank god x
