Between children? I'm feeling like my maternal time bomb is about to explode and DS is only 7 months old. When did you:

1. Get your menses back?
2. Start to consider TTC?
3. TTC?
4. Get pregnant??

Am I for wanting to get pregnant again so soon? I see little babies everywhere and I'm beyond lusting...

I was 33 when I had ds, and he was conceived in about 6 months. We wanted to ttc again when he was 12 months, however, did not get menses back until he was 16 months, since then have been pregnant twice and m/c'ed twice. Didn't worry so much about that ticking clock before, but now I definitely do! :
How old are you, if you don't mind my asking?

1. Get your menses back? 8 months
2. Start to consider TTC? when baby was about 12 months
3. TTC? baby was 15 months
4. Get pregnant?? been TTC for 7 months now

It took us 7 months TTC before we conceived DD. And that was off and on trying. I would change my mind sometimes. When I see pregnant women, I wish that I had a big pregnant belly too.

1. Get your menses back? 9 months pp
2. Start to consider TTC? Honestly, at one day pp I told DH I wanted to do it again. We put it off until DD weaned because of some meds I need while pregnant, and I didn't want to cut her off early just because I like being pregnant.
3. TTC? 14 months
4. Get pregnant?? I'll let you know.

1. Get your menses back? I got preggo before ever having a cycle!
2. Start to consider TTC? Around 6 mos. we decided to let nature takes it course. bf on cue, co-sleep, etc. no cycle yet...and no protection.
3. TTC? not really trying, but open to conception if it happened
4. Get pregnant?? when dd1 was just under 10 mos.

I am exactly the same way, and if you are crazy, I'm insane because my DS is only 3 months old!!

I got AF at 30 months. We had been wanting to TTC for 2 months before that. DD is almost 3 and we are still working on the getting pg part.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

I have 3 kids.

After #1:
Got af back at 4 months (LONG, generally annovulatory cycles).
Started unofficial ttc immediately (in other words, don't do anything to prevent!)
At 10 months took Vitamin B6 to lenghten luteal phase while breastfeeding. Got pg at 10 months pp.

After #2:
Never got af back.
Started ttc at 7 months when ds had to be weaned for medical reasons; got pg a couple of weeks later.

After #3:
Got af back today! (11 months pp).
Not officially ttc but not avoiding either (we've never avoided; just haven't been fertile yet due to the breastfeeding)


I completely understand feeling like you want to be pg again when your child is still so young. Obviously I feel the same way! I generally start taking periodic hpt's when my baby is just a few months old, just in case I'm pg and didn't realize it! Of course, now that af came back I will chart so I know what's up, so I don't waste anymore tests.
