I got married when I was about a month shy of my 36th b-day. Right after we got married we decided we would just see what happens since time is not on our side ( my hubs is 4 years older than me) We got married in March and I got pregnant in April. Sadly I started to miscarry on Mother's Day, yeah that sucked. But the upswing was I got pregnant right away at the end of May before I got my period back and had a healthy baby girl in Feb 2012. With my son I had to completely stop breastfeeding to even start to ovulate or get my period back. It took about 6 months to get pregnant the second go round. We are still debating on baby #3. I would love to have one more but my husband isn't so sure. I think we will take a lets see what happens approach, not prevent but not plan either.
baby #3 arrived in September 2014...cannot get ticker to work no matter what I try!
Happened the second month of trying which was kind of a shock because a lot of people tried to prepare me that it could take 6 months to a year.
Make sure you're ready when you start trying!
