mtnlisa, welcome (back) to QPP!! i hope all is well...
Nosreves, how goes it??
I meant to get to some more personals but the kid is getting cranky and i wanted to post a bit about some exciting news... i'm thinking about you all.
AFU, OMGosh!!! DP told me last night that she wants to start planning to carry our second!! I don't know if any of you remember (probably not
) but she has always maintained that she doesn't have an interest in carrying a child. While i'm supportive of that feeling and would be happy to carry any and all of our babies, i can't help but want her to experience it. plus, i want to meet a "little her", YKWIM?? Anyway, we talked a little last night and she's going to work on her tokophobia (fear of childbirth) because she says that's really the only thing stopping her and that it's a stupid reason (for her) to not carry a child. We talked about me continuing to nurse S as long as possible, to possibly keep me lactating for the next one and also about inducing lactation. She feels that she may not want to BF passed 6 months, if that. She'd be going back to work after 2-3 months. i'd (hopefully) continue to stay home. I'm soooo excited for the prospect of her carriying!!! She is going to start charting on Mothers' Day and we plan on starting TTC in Jan/Feb. I will start charting, too, as soon as my fertility returns, as a safely net. we agree that she would feel best if she were able to back out of the plan at any time. me being ready on the sidelines gives her and "out" without prohibiting us from TTC at the begining of the year. i was so excited last night i could hardly fall asleep, i don't even think i knew how much i wanted this... i cried and cried!!
she asked me to be the fertility tracker and birth planner (she wants a hospital birth with drugs but i think i can be ok with that). so now i start reading! Seraf and Sara, your birth plans and such were quite different... can you both please talk to me about that?? thanks in advance!
