Hoping to hang out

Hi guys

I'm Liz.
We have a lovely 4 month old boy who is a total miracle and blessing to us.
It took us 4 years to fall successfully with Ed but now zee know the problem we are hoping we will fall as quickly as before but with more success as we would love a sibling for my precious son.
As I am 40 we are trying right away.
If I don't fall in a year I think I will go on bc butxwe will see.
Af arrived today... I thought I had a couple more days but the cycles still wonky after my birth.
If I conceived this month I would be due around the 5th of September.. But I had Ed at 38 weeks via c section so I guess I would again and that would be the 22nd of august I believe.
Anyhow!!
Hi everyone and good luck!!!!!!
Xxxxxx

I hope your TTC journey is short and sweet this time. IIRC you have worked out the cause as to why you had difficulties last time is that right?

Hello you.

Yup!! After loosing twins to downs 2 novembers ago... The hospital suggested I go private.
Within 2 months I was diagnosed as being homogyous for the mutation gene mthfr.
This meant my body couldn't change the folic acid into the kind of folate I needed for a healthy baby and caused them to mutate to the trisomys.
Plus it gives me an increased risk of dvt.
Thankfully I just take 5mgbof folic every day now and once pregnant I will be on the fragmin shots and cyclogest pessaries.
So.... Baring in mind I used to get pregnant very easily and I am supposed to be pretty fertile now.. I hope we fall quickly.
Saying that.. We are just having lots of nookie rather than charting or anything.
I had a couple of left over opks for last month... Nit sure if I will buy any more... Probably will lol

How are you doing lovely?

Thats good, I hope you can fall pregnant quickly with a healthy bub so Ed can have a sibling

Depends on the day how I am going, today is a ready to chuck in the towel day. I go for a scan for my second IUI today, should be interesting to see how I responded to Clomid. Not sure if we will go for more treatment after this, it's rough on me with the driving and balancing work with that (3 hour round trip to the clinic for appts that last less than 15 minutes) and the emotional side.

I'm stalking all you lovely ladies until I can convince DH for one more!! Blum 3 Still no ppaf though, and I have an IUD right now. So there's no chance of it happening at this moment...plus I think you need to have sex too!! HAHAHA!!! With DS2 starting to sleep better I'm hoping that is in our near future.
Lizbet are you bfing or ffing? If you're bfing I can't believe you have af already!!!! With DS1 I think it came back around 15 months pp, then I got pg again after 2 cycles.

I have this sick morbid desire for twins too! I know! I'm crazy!!! I have alot of doubt that DH will come around and we're done. Which makes me sad. I just love being pregnant and soft squishy babies!!!! I know he's thinking from a financial point of view (and he's mostly right) and just about us reconnecting and having a life together (we have virtually no one near by to watch the kids) so it is hard. I dont mind nonrelative sitters once the boys are older but not when they are so young. (well Simon being 3 is fine, but Deacon is still so young and needy). So he feels like we are sort of "growing apart" in a sense. Even though we are always together.

He's also a stay at home Dad, so I'm putting alot on him. BUTTTTT, it is his choice. We'd have more financial freedom if he would work outside the home. But he likes being his own boss (even if he hardly makes any money) and doesnt like the idea of daycare for the boys. So that leaves me as the bread winner. I'd gladly stay home, but I do like working too. I'm also ok with both of us working, it's just him who is not.

It is so hard making the choices that work best. I've always wanted twins as well, but now that could be a reality it scares me as well, especially as it will probably have such a huge impact on my birthing choices

Hey you Smile

I am ffing.
I bf for a couple of weeks... Then my help got slack due to one reason or another and Ed destroyed my nipples!!
Very glad I stopped as he hasa habit of chomping down really hard.. Like pitbull locking it's jaw, when he is having a pooh!!
I am surprised the teats are still in one piece lol!!
