    I voted no plans but thats just because I am no where near ready so I can't even say when it might happen. We may just have 1, we may try for another in a few years, we just haven't made a decision yet. Mostly because the thought of a pregnancy and newborn gives me hives.

    I put TTC...but we're not trying REAL hard. I just stopped BC at the end of June. I'll probably give it 6 months, and if nothing happens I'll start using the OPK's.

    Currently pregnant. It happened sooner than expected, even though we were not trying not preventing. It took us about a year to get pregnant with Braylee and 4 months with this one.

    This will be our last baby. We agreed early on that we only wanted 2 children. H is and onlychild and I'm one of 2 so its just what we're comfortable with.

    I got a little freaked out after I left thinking that it could be happening again so soon, but at the same time I really REALLY want to get the newborn stuff out of the way and just move on as a family.  I feel like until I get pregnant again it's just hanging over my head and I have anxiety about it.  I just want to get it over with!
    This is what I struggle with too. I am just honestly so far removed from wanting to have a baby I think it would be more negative than positive for me to try right now. I just don't want to feel any sort of resentment or ill feelings towards my H or the new baby.

    My head is such a mess right now when I think about another baby.

    We were also in the 'get the newborn stuff done and out of the way' camp - if we were younger, I would have wanted to space them out more -- like 2-3 years apart... but I am due 5 weeks from tomorrow, they'll be 17 months apart, and I'll be having my tubes tied after my c/s.   :-)

    @Pinottoparenthood... did you answer?!

    I did! I said 6-12 months. We were originally planning to start TTC when Rhys turns two, but now I am kind of contemplating talking with my husband about getting my IUD out in December. I just don't want them to be too far apart in age... But I just don't know how I will be able to handle a newborn and a crazy toddler!

    Either way will be great!  My brother and i are 3years apart, and most of my friends have siblings in his class -- it's a great age range.  We were still close enough in age that we were into the same phases growing up, but never had to compete with each other for friends or anything.  On the other hand, it's been nice being pregnant twice back to back in that i never really got OUT of the phase of being pregnant, and we won't be in for as much of a shock with diapers, breastfeeding/formula /bottles etc.. since we're not really even done with it yet this time!

    Just finished AF and starting trying again this month. Praying that the time is right this time so I can have another April baby!
    SS.  We're in limbo. We are waiting for my post d&c follow up with the OB tomorrow to see how long she would recommend waiting to TTC and then adjusting our own plans accordingly. 

    My doc said we could try after my first cycle. AF came back 7.5 weeks post d&c and we got pregnant the second month after that. Good luck tomorrow.

    I voted TTC. We have been trying for a year now. So having another baby may not happen.

    I voted "No plans for another baby." 

    We have a (almost!) 10 year old and a 15 month old. We aren't even THINKING about having another, although DH would not let me put all of DS' baby clothes in our rummage last weekend "just in case." 

    I think I'm more "no plans" than he is. I'm not completely against having another child if it were to happen (we're not trying/not preventing as we're of the mindset that it's God's will), but as of right now I don't know if I could handle the newborn/early infant stage again.

    I voted no plans, but I could be convinced for a 3rd. DH, not so much.

    I put ss. We are tossing up a 3rd. It could honestly go either way right now. If we do, we'll probably start trying mid next year. I don't want to get too much older.

    We are done with 3. I'm very happy with our 3-4 year age gaps too. :-)

    I want to start trying soon as in the next couple of months but I'm sad I'm still so overweight. I've been reading a lot about women who have safely lost weight while pregnant though so I'm getting more excited! I've already started taking baby steps to lose weight such as drinking more water, cut out pop/alcohol/energy drinks and started walking this week.

    Oh and I also am in the "want to get all the newborn stuff out of the way" phase.

    I put no plans. I hate being pregnant and I never want to do it again. I have the Paraguard and it lasts 10 years and I will be using it until the end. My H wants to have another one because he wants a boy, but I'm not willing to concede to that. I will however adopt. I've always wanted to do that, but he's not really on board for that either. So we're just at a standstill and I'm not budging.

    Like I have said before.  If I was not 42 (my husband is 36) we would do it again in a heart beat.   I know there are a lot of older moms but I am not sure I could handle a newborn and a 15 month old, even with our 12 year old daughters help.
