It's a tiny part of why I'm waiting until August-ish! We don't have central air and most summers we don't need it but if we end up with another freakish 100 plus summer, I think I'd just throw myself in the lake and wait for labor to come at some point.

My first 10 pounds are gone. 40ish to go.

And Sihaya, thank you for adding me to the roster. It makes it seem more "real" to see my name up there.

We are not being very careful either. The baby fever has been really bad for me the past couple months. We both really want kids but he wants to wait a bit for a number of reasons. Im not a citizen yet, we need to get married, and it would be nice for me to get a job so I can save a little (no work visa).

I really want a february or spring baby as well but that means we have to be careful for a couple more months. I can totally relate to wanting to wait and be able to time the birth according to time of year.

Put me on the list for at least attempting to wait it out haha.

Can I join? We're waiting to start ttc our second in April 2010.

We're hoping for a Spring baby aswell, even though APril would give us a Christmas baby. We started ttc ds in April and he was conceived in July and born the following April.
Having him in spring was just so perfect, having just gone through winter I wonder how I would have coped if he had been newborn during that time. I would have found it so much more difficult.
I'll take what we're given though, if I'm due in winter I'll still be delighted.

Yeah I'm not too worried about which month the baby is born. November, December and January would probably be less preferable because it being so close to christmas and new years holidays.

Do you all know if you want any more children after this next one? and how long you will wait for the next one? I'm undecided if I'll have anymore after my second.

I really wanted DS to be a March baby and said over and over 'Any month but December!,' but in the end our baby lust won out over time of the year preference and he was born Dec 22nd. So far, the only thing that bothers me about having his birthday so close to Christmas is all of the negative comments and assumptions from others.

While we've agreed to take it one pg at a time, we want a total of six at this point, and plan on spacing them all about 3 years apart.

Aww, Im sorry if my comment came off wrong. I was not meaning to be offensive. I hear you though, just for saying I dont want my baby to be born near Christmas it will probably be a Christmas baby!

Please, don't worry about it! The part that is annoying is that it's ALL I ever hear when people ask when he was born. I know you didn't mean to be rude at all.

Steph, what are the negative assumptions and comments? Are you saying that people think you are aiming for a Christmas baby?




I will probably be happy to eventually have one I think.

Well basically people are just stating a fact, it isn't meant offensively to you. It's a fact that people who have a birthday close to christmas have it overshadowed by the festivities etc. I'm sure it would get tiring hearing people say that, but surely you agree with it too? I think you just have to accept it really, it doesn't mean you're a bad parent for having a baby during that time....their birthday is one day a year in their life. It's a small thing in the grand scheme of things.

eta -im sure there are some positives about having a birthday around that time also!

It's the assumptions that it is impossible to make a birthday special if it falls around Christmas and ALL babies born around that time get "jipped" (the word used most often). I get the feeling that people are saying I am not capable of giving my child an appropriate birthday experience because of when they were born, which is just ridiculous to me. If I heard this from a few people here and there, I'd ignore it, but it's on the list of the top three things said to me about my child.

Since we don't celebrate Christmas or birthdays the way most people do, I do not consider it a fact. And people aren't simply talking about the event being overshadowed when they use words like "jipped" "ripped off" "cheated" and "unfair." My child is not a "poor baby" just because of when his birthday fell on the calendar.

Nope. I was born two days before a different holiday and I just don't agree with the premise of the argument at all. My husband was born Dec 19 and he doesn't agree with it either.

Accept what exactly? That people say stupid things and assume everyone else thinks/feels/believes/behaves the same way they do? Accepted. Doesn't mean I can't feel annoyed by the comments. I don't remember saying I felt like a bad parent.

Eek! Speaking from experience, it is not always this way for every family. Is there a potential for it? Absolutely! Does it have to be that way? Absolutely not!

I wanted to let you all know that I will be leaving your tribe (though I am sure I'll still lurk), as the "see what happens" approach has led to a BFP test and a little one coming early in November! I wish you all the best of luck!

I haven't been on here in awhile. We moved back our possible TTC to likely Jan 2010. Finances keep getting worse, then suddenly 6 months ago I came down with digestive problems so I need to take care of my health first.

We are also considering adopting as well. My baby fever has became "I want to be a Mother" fever and I would be happy becoming a Mother to a child. DH is totally for adoption, but seems to know me better than myself though and is convinced my baby fever won't go away adopting..that I'll want to birth my own one day.

So we'll see. Man is the wait hard, I feel trapped in a way. I am trying to just enjoy life with my wonderful DH right now, get healthy, and hopefully make some headway on finances.

Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.

Sorry to hear that, I am having the same problem with my daughter. On and off for a while now, and lately she has been sick more often. I have an ongoing thread about it in the health forum here. It's so stressful.

I'm just trying to keep telling myself this was a good time for it to happen (if it had to happen at all ) She is old enough to tell us how she feels, where it hurts etc. And she is still at a young age where it will be sorted out (hopefully) before she grows up. Also hopefully it will all be sorted and she will be better before August. Otherwise I'm not going to want to ttc if she is still sick and we still don't know what's causing it or how we can help her.


Congrats Krsitinb on your BFP, how exciting! I'm excited just reading it lol

just wanted to throw in a word of support for you.. I've got a birthday on December 29, and I've always loved it. Being after Chrstmas, as a child it was always something exciting to look forward to when all the thrills of Christmas were fading. And if I really wanted something and didn't get it on Christmas, there was just enough time for someone to buy it for my birthday (or vice versa). I never felt jipped.. my birthday celebrations were the same as anyone else (though often cancelled due to blizzards!). And you get those specialty cards for birthdays in December/Christmas. I guess the comments I always hear is "wow.. that's right by Christmas!".. as if it's a cool thing.
Another thing that a dear relative started for me was to celebrate my half birthday in June.. I'd get half a card, half a cake, and a lil present.. and let me tell you, I was the envy of many a child!!
Think of it this way... isn't Christmas in a sense a birthday party? My crazy aunt once made a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas, and yes, we sang!
All in all, a baby is the best present you can get, any day of the year.

^^Yeah there are definately positive things about a birthday near Christmas too!

I have started a diet to lose weight and be more healthy before TTC. Right now it's mainly to lose the weight, then it will be eating plenty of healthier foods once the weight is off. Wish me luck....I need it.....

Since starting an elimination diet about a year ago to work toward healing my gut as well as DS's I've dropped about 65lbs : . No dairy, peanuts and most other legumes, soy (his soy allergy has gotten better so now we get some soy, mmmmm, Tofutti ), eggs, nuts, seeds, fish (shell and otherwise, though we tried Tilapia and love it, no reactions either), hmm, I think that's it.

I'm pretty ecstatic since I was 40lbs overweight before conceiving DS, then gained another 25 over the course of 2 years : . Despite BF around the clock . Sucked, I used to run, strength train, all of that and was used to being all svelte and stuff. Now, I bought a new pair of running shoes a few weeks ago : . Got about 10 more lbs to lose but I'll shoot for 15 .

Even when I was thin I wasn't very healthy though : . My consciousness of what I put into my body is worlds apart from where I used to be.

You can do it! It's so hard at first but get through those first couple of months and you'll wonder how things were not always this way .

Thinking about what we'll need for another baby in the house. Having fun looking at CDs and everything . ToddlerBaby has decided that's enough computer time for me, gotta run!

Hey all! Can you add me to this list? I live in MN, have 1 daugther and we will be TTC this fall. We currently use condoms as our source of BC but I am temping. I actually need help with my chart. My temps are all over the freaking place. I am getting BBT soon here (its in the mail) so I am hoping it will be more accurate. Its only my first month charting so it could just take some getting use to! Nice to meet you all!

Here is my chart

Hi, everyone. I'm new to this thread. I really want to be pregnant again and want another baby and it seems like things keep pushing it back. I have almost 3 yr old b/g twins. We are going on trip to Alaska in July and I wanted to wait until after the trip since I was so sick with the last pregnancy. Now we've decided to move summer of 2010 and so we can't be expecting in the middle of summer so we have to wait even longer. I don't want to be due in Aug because the kids will be starting their new preschool so now I can't start trying until December of 2009. I am sad and just want to be pregnant. I know we aren't ready now anyways because my ds is slighty autistic and has special needs and he gets very jealous of me holding any baby or even my husband touching me or holding hands. I want to wait until he is a little older and I can explain things to him better. I want everyone in our family to be ready for a baby, not just me..........so I'm feeling sad, but there is nothing that I can do about it right now.

Thanks mamacatsbaby! I find dieting and exercise so difficult, but Im trying to think of it like -I want a baby more than I want food lol I know that sounds silly, but it does help me focus a little better. Grocery shopping is that hardest and when other people are eating infront of me like if we visit family which we do regularly. But yes, I think cutting out the bad stuff and portion control is the key, and ofcourse doing extra exercise -I've just done my first part of that for today.

My other main focus is work because Im really hoping for a promotion in May, it will help so much with us financially. I don't want to be struggling with 2 children like I used to when my dd was younger.

Welcome childbirth_fanatic and Owachi! It's really hard waiting sometimes

A lot of us are losing so we can get healthy for a baby. Very cool!

DH has decided we are taking a family vacation at the end of May through the first week of June. I *might* be thin enough then to TTC. A vacation baby would be kind of neat.
