Babies: 3 - 6 Months

To get pregnant or not to get pregnant...

I find it very weird that I am on the SAME exact schedule as last year. Last year my LMP was 6/21 and I ovulated on the fourth of July when we are at the Oregon coast for the holiday. Well this year I got my period 6/21 too which means when we go back to the coast this weekend for the holiday I will be ovualting again!

We are both ready for another one Stick out tongue but then again we are not... I want to enjoy my 3 month old and wait till next summer/fall to try but then again I want them really close...

How far apart do you want your children?

Re: To get pregnant or not to get pregnant...

  • We were going to start trying again this fall or winter, but we had a long discussion about it this weekend and we've decided to wait another year or two. My husband would really like me to be able to stay home with the kids, so we're waiting for that opportunity.

  • No less than 3 years. H is starting grad school AND I want to be able to enjoy each kid individually at each stage versus running after 2 toddlers at once.

  • I got this bfp the week of my ds's second birthday. Two is tough stuff. I cant believe I ever thought having one little infant was tiring.

  • I would get pregnant now if it wouldn't throw off my mat leave.  Idon't go back to work until late March 2012 and I would have to be working for at least 6 months to qualify for mat leave again. Also, we need a bigger house before adding a 3rd.

  • We would like to start TTC when DD is 9 months old - so in Sept! 
    Husband and Wife 2010
    DD 12.2010
    TTC #2 Since Aug 2012
    DX PCOS 7.25.13
    Started Metformin 7.2013
    DH SA results 6.19.14 - Too few normal sperm
    8.13.14 - SURPRISE BFP - EDD 3/30/14 Based on LMP
    MMC 9/24/14, D&C 9/25/14 13w3d, Measured at 7w4d
     
  • I'm almost 37. If we want two I don't have a lot of time to wait to try again. We talked about trying next spring.  If I had more time I would wait til DD is 3 and then try.  Trying for #2 is dependant upon us being in a good place financially, however.  If I had to decide today, I would say we are one and done.  I don't feel we can swing two in daycare right now, and with my job being the one keeping us insured, DH would have to SAH and I am not sure he'd be able to handle that.  DD is awesome and if she is my only I will be ok with that, but I would like her to have a sibling, so I am hoping we can try again.
  • We want them about 2 years apart. I would go for earlier, but I want to BF Louie for a year, and it doesn't seem like AF is coming anytime soon.

  • I'm talking with my OB about it in a couple of weeks. I had severe pre-e and E was born early because of it and I want to make sure I get cleared before opening the lady doors. Once I get her ok, we're down with not avoiding.

  • DD was 3 1/2 when DS was born.  I like that they're still close in age, but DD is self sufficient on a lot of things (ie. she's potty trained, she dresses and feeds herself, etc).  We'll probably wait another 2-3 years before TTC again.

  • Hats off to you guys who want another baby so soon. I wish I did, but I'm so overwhelmed. I think we're going to wait until DS is about 1 1/2. DH would like to before...but I'm just not ready.

    This.  We'll probably stop preventing it in the fall but I don't expect to get KU right away.  We conceived #1 very quickly but who knows when AF is coming back.  I feel weird that I actually want AF back...

    Personally, I think going from 0-1 kids is hard! 1-2 is not nearly as hard. (Hard, yes, busy, yes, but not AS hard.)

  • We are waiting until the boys are at least 2.  Props to everyone that can do 3 u 3 but we would like to avoid that! We also need to consider the very real risk that I will be on some kind of rest fairly early.  I need good walkers in case I can not carry them around.

  • I'm thinking of trying when LO turns 1. Of course, I have to get my H's permission first but I think he'll be fine with it.

    We've been debating it. I'm on the mini pill but I've had this feeling I'm already pregnant. I'm due for AF today actually so I'll know soon. We would prefer them maybe 18 months to 2 years apart, so I won't be heartbroken if I'm not but it wouldn't be the end of the world if I am pregnant. It would be really hard because I would have 2 under 1 for a few days. Crossing my fingers that it's just my hormones out of wack!

    This if we decide to have another. It's a huge decision and I am not 100% that I want to with the complication we had this time. I have a 25% chance of it happening again. Near death is scary shiz.

  • Ours are 14 months apart and it's PERFECT. The main thing keeping me from TTC right now is that BFing through a pregnancy was very hard and I'd rather not have to do it again.

  • No way in h-e-double-hockey sticks would I agree to TTC when DS was 3 months old. My c-section was pretty traumatic, and I'd rather give my body at least a year or two before going through anything like that again!

    Congratulations to WI-mommy-hopeful. Noah is here!!

  • #1 and #2 are 12.5 months apart. I really like that spacing. It worked well for the first 2 because it was so easy for my first to adjust to having a sibling.

    #2 and #3 (if there's a #3) will be 2.5 years apart, so we'd start trying next fall. I like the idea of there only being 3.5 years between the youngest/oldest, but I'd also get a break from 2 very closely spaced pregnancies (and c-sections) as well.

  • I would love to start TTC now, but DS has not been an easy baby and DH is a little scared. But we have agreed to start when DS is one.

    I agree. I found 0-1 a much tougher transition. Adding a 2nd has been so much easier than I anticipated mentally.

  • We are trying to decide now if we are going to start trying once DS is one or wait until he turns 2.  I would love another right now but I want some time to spoil DS first : )
