Hi ladies! :) My husband and I hope to have two more children. Our youngest is 17 months old and still nursing for most of his calories. I have been pregnant and nursing for nearly 8 years now. My body feels very depleted and I am trying to build my nutritional stores back up through Traditional Foods. We also just bought a house last month which needs major work and we are working on launching our family fiber art business. I am in midwifery school and we began our first year of homeschooling.

 

I am hoping that we will be ready to start TTC when our baby is around two and a half or 3 years old. Our oldest is nearly 6, so she would theoretically be around 8 when our fourth comes along. All of our children have been born at home, but when our oldest was 2 and 4 respectively. It would be awesome for her to experience the homebirth of a sibling as an older child, so she would have a more powerful memory of it all. She loves pregnancy, birth, babies, nursing, it all fascinates her. My own sister was born at home when I was one month shy of turning ten years old. It still is one of my most favorite and compelling memories. So much, in fact, that I am in midwifery school and plan to be a practicing midwife when my children are older. heartbeat.gif

 

I will be 30 this next summer and while I chart and have many days of fertile CM, I am concerned that my fertility will start to wane, and we will have trouble conceiving. I suffered through infertility and then miscarriages for many years and it is absolutely one of the most devastating life events I have experienced.

 

So we'll see! I just got my first PP period and I am ovulating now. It's exciting to be charting again. Funny enough, I don't have baby lust. I would probably freak a bit if I got pregnant anytime soon. I still have a baby that needs a lot of attention.

Thanks for reading my little post and I look forward to journeying along with you women. I may not post a lot, but know that I am reading. Have a beautiful day!treehugger.gif


I love that.  smile.gif

 

I hope your wait is short and your TTC journey is quick.

Timing isn't great - my mom passed away suddenly, unexpectedly, and without explanation three months ago, so the next few (many) months will be hard.  This baby is a blessing though and we are very excited to welcome a new little one into our family. We are long overdue for some joy.


I'm sorry for your loss.

Congrats on your BFP!  joy.gif

I can be removed. We are no longer wanting or waiting.  I got my BFP today!   We are not totally prepared mentally as we were not actively TTC but this little one is welcomed.  Now I have to get my brain wrapped around the idea of three under three dizzy.gif.

Thanks for adding me!
I reconnected with my hs sweetheart through FB. Apparently he had been keeping tab on me off & on since HS... I have to admit I did the same, lol. We came to realize that neither of us ever got over the other. The first time we saw eachother again was in April this past year and even after 11 yrs of not seeing eachother even once, we both had all the emotions come flooding back like a tidal wave. I had already filed for my divorce, but wanted to take things slow, so we waited a couple weeks before we went on an official date (i know...not that slow but it seemed like it at the time!lol) We both hit it right off and it felt like we had never been apart. We've both been married, had 3 kids, & were scorned by our spouses cheating on us. He's always been that one guy that I knew I would always love. Even if it was secretly tucked away in the depths of my heart. I feel so fortunate to have a second chance with him, & he tells me everyday how lucky he is & how much he loves me. He makes me feel like a princess & I feel like I'm living the fairy tale now after the nightmare that my marriage was. We talk about what we want in our future & after the talks we've had today, it seems we might just forge ahead with certain plans earlier than we had anticipated because we are definitely not getting any younger!

Hi! I've been hit by the wanting to have another baby bug too. but it is smart for me to wait until DS is a little older, I am out of college, and I am married. I am planning to conceive in the spring of 2013. I have been wanting a big family with hopefully 6 kids. DB is okay with whatever. lol.

What a neat story.  I wish you both the best.
