I just posted this in the April thread and wanted to post it here too since I genuinely would like some feedback. Can't believe we're already in MAY!!!! Hopefully it's like last month where we got 2-3 BFPs right off the bat! :-)

Here was my post:

AFM, I find myself feeling very nervous about getting pregnant now. This is our first cycle where we are actively TTC and I'm starting to think about how hard it'll be to be pregnant (which my body doesn't handle particularly well) with a 1 year old boy and a 2 year old girl.... and then what it'll be like with a newborn baby and a 2 yr old and a 3 yr old.... Like am I getting in over my head? I know we would be fine, but do we want to be just fine?... maybe we should wait a few months until we're a little more confident... I'm so frustrated because we've been wanting to TTC for almost 6 months now but weren't able to for other reasons.... Now we can, but I'm starting to get cold feet.... Part of me wants to enjoy the summer with my kids and husband before getting pregnant since I know I get horrible morning sickness for the first 14-17 weeks.... And I feel I owe it to the kids I already have to give them an enjoyable summer... *sigh* I don't know. My feelings change about it every 5 minutes. If anyone has any advice/insight into this please feel free to give it. I know we'd be blessed with a baby at any point in time. And we'd be NOTHING but happy to get pregnant ASAP. But maybe we should plan a little more this pregnancy (my other 2 were planned, but not very well thought out... and as much as I love my kids to death and I have and will give them the world, life would've been a little easier if we'd waited just a bit longer to have them... at least until ONE of us had graduated from school. lol. But then I wouldn't have the wonderful, amazing kids I have now. And I'm so happy for that. So should I just let it go, have sex whenever we want and just see what happens? Maybe I should quit charting and taking OPKs and that way it's leaving it up to God and taking some of the "control" out of my hands... aghhh I feel like I'm being pulled in so many different directions.) Well, any insight is MORE than welcome here. Thanks Ladies! Hope you have a great Saturday!! :-)

Erica, I think it's natural to get "cold feet". I remember when we decided we were going to try to get pregnant with DS I was feeling super calm because it was right for us. That is I was calm until I got the BFP. When I saw it my heart sank a little as it really sank in. It is such a huge decision. Adding a child to your family is such a permanent thing. I think if you're feeling really unsure about it then just ntnp. Skip the OPK's and the charting. That's how I got pregnant with DS. We just left it up to nature.

I have to admit, the idea of going through 24/7 sickness and falling asleep standing up does not sound like a very good mix with the hot, hot days of summer. And I do worry a bit about how that's going to affect my 2 yr old. But it's TIME (she'll be three in July) and I'll just take it one day at a time.

Thanks! What's funny is that I'm the opposite. I am nervous about deciding when, but then I am nothing but happy about getting a BFP! We've already told family and friends we're TTC #3 so that any and all drama can get out of their systems BEFORE we announce our great news... There are alot worse situations we could be in... this is just trying to decide when would be the right time, if there ever is such a thing as the "right time" haha. I think we might skip ttc this month and see how we feel next month... and if after one to two months of that we're still feeling the same way we'll chalk it up to cold feet. Well, that's the "plan" haha. which has changed 100 times. Bottom line is that we both REALLY want another baby, and soon. So really we're gonna be excited either way. Thanks for the advice/insight ladies. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Welcome to everyone who is just joining!

Erica: I would just go ahead and have sex whenever and quit charting. I think it would give you the peace of mind not to have to chart and do OPKs for a while plus it will just happen when it happens and you can be surprised and excited. Just my two cents.

Welcome to everyone coming to obsess with us!

Still here...still not pregnant
post #14 of 291
Name: Stephanie
Date: 5/1/10
Chart: Not at this time
Where are you in your cycle: 7 DPO
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: I just have a feeling this cycle was it. I'm having crazy dreams, both in general (VERY real, people from my past crawling out of the woodwork) and about being pregnant. Exactly like with Alivia.
Testing: Tested this AM, even though it was very early. I used a Dollar Tree test. BFN. Not too disappointed, it's still early. I have a few tests left, so I will probably test every other day.
Thoughts: We have a feeling that our next baby will be a boy. A girl just doesn't "feel" right to me. Exactly like with Alivia.

Erica, I am so sorry about your cold feet but they may be in good timing. I went throught this several times after my DD was born. And it seemed to be inline with my horomes changing. It happened right about 6 months after DD birth when I started to put her on solid food and my milk decresed a little. Then at 12 months when she was just nursing a few times a day. Then when I weaned her at 20 months I thought I wanted to get pregnant for like a month. My morones always go out of wack when I get "Baby Sendrome". Which was happening alot. You see your little ones growing up but you start to mis the faze they just left. Luckily my DH is very down to earth, rush into nothing, and think about our decisions first kind of person. He always says to me think about it and sleep on it if your mind doesnt change about what you want in a week then you know its what you want. I am so glad he was around because the past three years with just me and my daughter I would not trade for anything. I would say since you want another child but are not sure of when that you should place it in God's hands and stress about it but do not prevent it either, he will not give you another one of his children if he thinks you are not ready. But I would probably not try really hard for it right now if you are having doubts. I would just play it cool and let happen what ever happens. You will probably get pregnant faster that way anyway because there would be no stress.
