TTC #2 Intro — The Bump
TTC after 35

TTC #2 Intro

Hello!  I just remembered there was a TTC for over 35 group here.  It's been probably about 3 years since I've been active on here.  DD was born in 2011.  I was 30 when I got pregnant with her and we just entered cycle 4 TTC #2.  It only took us 1 cycle to get pregnant with DD although the first 2 cycles trying we were both pretty busy so we didn't have the best timing.  Cycle 2 we started using pre seed and cycle 3 I used OPKs - I got 1 smiley face and I made sure that night and the following night we got busy - but nothing stuck I guess :(

I had a c/s with DD and I'm planning on a VBAC for the next baby.  I interviewed OBs last year and picked one that I think would be the best for me.  I'm 36 and DH is 40.  We both only want 2 kids.  For at least 3 years I didn't want another baby because of how hard DDs pregnancy was on my, but I'm at peace with that and feeling baby fever hard:)
