    I've ordered some ovulation kits today from Ebay to see if I am ovulating :D :D :D :D :D

    I think we're going to start to TTC within the next 4 weeks. But with B/F and the lack of a period since Ella was born I don't know where my cycle is at.

    Think it's going to be harder to TTC this time as I don't know where my cycle is at and I'm b/f, but hopefully something will happen within the next few months :D

    Wow, that's great news - I think we'll be waiting a couple of years!

    I think the ovulation kits will help you establish the fertile time in the month and give you an idea of what your cycle length would be if you weren't b/f

    Good luck - I'll be checking the TTC forum for a BFP :wink:

    My OH's family were all born with just a year between them, so they did lots of stuff together, three of them had a flat together when they were in uni, if you can believe it - they all studied engineering. Talk about strong trends!

    My family were all born three years apart other than the youngest two where there is a gap of seven years because my parents had trouble TTC with the last child.

    We want to aim for about two years between children, so we won't start to TTC until Naomi is about 15 months old, all going well etc.

    Time to learn how to use contraceptives properly! :lol:

    My word, you are a very brave woman!

    Best of luck TTC.

    I am still at the "never again" stage and I'm thinking of going on a long-term contraceptive.

    People tell me that I will change my opinion about this but I doubt it at the moment.

    The thought of going through another nine months of pregnancy with a baby to look after as well fills me with absolute horror! :lol:

    I don't miss being pregnant at all, and can't wait to find time to go back to karate and actually feeling fit again at some point this year.

    we have decided to put off trying for #3 for a few months cos I don't want another winter baby and I don't want their birthdays to be in the same month. I know it probally won't work out like that but thats my plan!

    At the moment Samuel is suffering a lot with trapped wind and its looking like colic and its driving us crazy.

    we actually are wishing we hadn't bothered even having a baby at the moment :?

    you guys must have really angelic children if you are thinking of starting all over again.

    sounds horrendous for me :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Yes they are challenging, I want to take time to enjoy Dominic before I start worrying about TTC I want to devote my time to him without getting into all that just yet, let's hope it does not take another 4 years though but I am not going to stress out this time around.

    I think the same. It took me 3 years to years to get Reece and i remember how stressful it was. Also I cant imagine being able to give Reece all my attention while pregnant. I found it hard enough looking after myself!

    We are only planning on having 2 children and I would really like to have a small age gap between them but I can't see it happening. We both live thousands of miles away from both our families and I think for us we would need family support if we decided to TTC this year and also with the way my pregnancy went I really couldn't give Kai the attention he deserves at this time. The earliest we will try again is probably towards the end of next year.

    I've always wanted two children but i ideally want to wait until eva is 3 or 4. But for some reason today i feel really broody! I'm starting to miss being pregnant and even miss being in hospital with a new baby. wasn't expecting to feel like this so soon! :shock:

    Hi,

    is it just hormones or is it the huge emotional event that makes us all feel like this? Does it wear off? I mean did those of you who have older babies still think about having another one all of the time? To start with it was just my OH who was really broody- the first few weeks were such a shock that I couldn't think past it but now....

    I want to lose the 1 1/2 stone I've put on first though and perhaps wait until next Spring but otherwise...! I have started on the Folic Acid again :)
