TTC after 35

Thinking About Coming Back Soon!

I just had a baby in July and I am already thinking about when to start trying for #2. I must be crazy, but I am 38 and don't want to put it off too long. That said, I haven't gotten my period back yet. Anyone else trying for #2 or #3 so soon after having a baby. If so, any advice is appreciated.

Re: Thinking About Coming Back Soon!

  • I just wanted to welcome you back! I am excited to see you start posting again for #2. Good luck to you and how is your baby doing?
  • She's absolutely wonderful and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. ?She's full of smiles and just started putting her fingers in her mouth. ?It's too cute.

  • I am so glad you are enjoying every moment of your DD. I remember when you posted her birth so long ago...Best of luck again this cycle!
  • Just want to say, I am still trying for #1 but I dont think you are crazy for wanting to try again so soon.. I hope it happens quickly for you.


  • I am 39 and will be the same way.  That, of course, is assuming we get to #1!

  • Congrats on the birth of your daughter.  I can imagine you are having a wonderful time.  I do not think it's crazy to start thinking of #2 now.  Actually, DH and I recently started TTC #1, but have already decided to have #2 right away (as long as all goes well & we do not have multiples).  Sure, I have two years on you, but you don't know just how long it will take.

    My Mom had her first 4 kids (of 7) in 4 years.  I think two would be manageable.  

    Good Luck and enjoy your daughter.


  • I think that medically you should wait at least 6 months after giving birth. My brother is less than 1 year older and I was born prematurely. (I am fine but spent 2 months in the hospital).

    I am undecided and not giving away my maternity clothes just yet.?
