I have about 5 reasons why we need to wait to TTC:
time with other kids
Time with husband
BUT it's so darn hard! We aren't really actively avoiding, but I'm def aware of ovulation. I know I should be doing more to prevent. I really want my kids to be close together. I also wanted to have a spring baby next time and that means waiting 6 more months to TTC. Please talk some sense into me! I don't need to get pregnant now!
I feel the same way! I want a spring baby too. But, when I think about waiting until June to ttc in order to have a spring baby, wow that is far away! I'm also losing weight and I told myself that I'm not allowed to ttc until I lose it. But, I should reach my goal weight by February. I don't know how I'll wait from March to June without ttc.
My other reason for waiting to ttc is that I'm a teacher. If I get pregnant in March, I'd have the baby in December. I'd take a few months off and have to come back to school. If I have a baby anytime Feb-June I'll be able to stay home with the baby until late August until I go back to school. But then I think, if I wait to ttc until May so I have a February baby, there is no guarantee that it will happen right away. Part of my is scared that it will take awhile and that as soon as I reach my goal weight I should ttc. I feel better after writing that last sentence. Maybe I should listen to myself and just not try and also not prevent after I reach my goal weight. I feel better about that than waiting until June. Well, it will take me at least 6 weeks to reach my goal weight, so I have lots of time to think about it.
Lol, can you tell that I'm a little obsessive
Hi everyone Im still here too! :
Im very excited to start ttc however I still have a while to wait yet. Another 5 months to go! 5 more periods!
So excited : Its still a while away yet but time goes by fairly quickly most of the time, and I am enjoying being a mother to one so much I dont feel in too much of a rush to start ttc number 2.
On the other hand, I cant wait to start the whole ttc process, pregnancy tests, experience pregnancy again, have a newborn to look after, breastfeed, give my dd her own little sister or brother etc etc So excited! Also a tad nervous aswell. :
Probably should start figuring out how to get my body and my life best prepared for ttc, pregnancy and a baby!!!!!
