Hi Mamas! I just read back through the last few months threads and I am so glad that everyone is doing well for the most part!
Ezra is doing great. He's 9 and a half month old today and determined to keep up with his big brother. He is crawling like a crazy person all over the house and so fast! He's also pulling up to stand on everything he can get his little hands on and even did some cruising around the coffee table today. I'm so happy he's healthy and growing but I'm not ready for a toddler yet!
After Sol (my 3 year old) was born we weren't very serious about birth control. I did some NFP to get an idea of when my cycle might start again, but I didn't have a period until after Sol weaned at 22 months. Then I had one period and got pregnant again! So in 4.5 years I've had ONE period. Can I expect my cycle to take that long to start up again or is it different for each baby?
Anyhow, after Sol was born I was open to the idea of closely spaced babies but not exactly trying to get pregnant either. The day after Ezra was born I called and set up an appt to get an IUD. I was (and still am) totally uninterested and opposed to getting pregnant right now. I've had the IUD for 7 months now with no issues, but I haven't started my period again either, so we'll see. I was totally surprised at how strong my reaction was to starting BC right away. I don't think we're done having kids, but I would have a REALLY hard time if we got pregnant right now.
GTG, naptime's over!
