I've been talking...

and asking a lot of questions with the midwife i'm pretty sure we will be going with. She is opening up an office the end of this month just 15-20 minutes away from me. Smile I also asked her about what I need to get for the birth and what not. She has a kit that provides everything and all I would need to provide is regular house hold items that I already have. I also asked about breech birth, she personally can't do them but she has a partner that does them for her so even if I end up with a breech baby I will still get my home birth! Yay! Really the only thing that would keep me from not getting my home birth is if baby were to come before 36 weeks, and she even said that she would be willing, if it was our wish, to do a home birth after 35 weeks, though I do think I would go into the hospital if that were to happen. She also has a birth tub I can rent, liner included, for $50. So now to decide if we are just going to rent hers or if we will buy one of our own.

Oh and DH said he is ready to try for #3 in April! So as long as everything looks good it looks like we will be trying here in just a few months. Smile

that sounds great, Krista! DH and I have been talking about TTC in the next few months (I think will need to take something to fix my luteal phase...based on CM observations, my last 3 cycles have had LPs of 9, 7, and 8 days...I was taking Vitex due to spotting issues when I concieved DS, so I'm thinking it will help with this, too), maybe we will be pregnant at the same time again Smile

That would be fun. Smile My last 2 periods have been 32 day cycles and it seems that I'm ovulating around 12-14 days after my last period but I'm not sure yet. I've been trying to keep better track of it for TTC but I don't really do anything with temping. I just know based on my CM and my body when I'm ovulating. I know when I got pregnant with Will it was only about 10 days after my last period based on when I got sore boobs, which, for me, is about 72 hours after I conceive.

I hope you can get things regulated for TTC soon. Smile Are you wanting another girl or another boy? I'm so hoping for a girl this next time, and so is all our family and friends. lol.

You know, since I have 1 girl and 1 boy, I think I will be genuinely happy either way this time. It would be nice for DS to have a brother close in age. My DH and his brother 2 years younger than him have always been really close. It would also be nice for DD to have a sister, and since I'm the only girl with 3 brothers, I kind of want her to have what I never had.

lol. I've always had a pretty easy time conceiving and, this may sound strange, kind of hope that I get the anticipation of "is this our month" thing. It took us 2 months of trying to conceive DS1 and... ummm.... 2 weeks of trying for DS2. So yeah there never really has been that anticipation for me.

Brittany- I understand that. Before I found out William was a boy I really wanted a girl but after I realized that having two boys so close in age they would be best of friends. They are already showing signs of being super close to each other and I love it. How many kids are you thinking of having?

We don't know how many we're going to have. We're keeping an open mind about it and hoping that God will let us know when we have reached right number for us. I come from a family of four kids and DH is one of nine. He likes the idea of a big family, and while having more than four or five feels a little foreign to me because of the family I grew up in, I'm not opposed to it if I feel I am handling things well when we get there. So, we'll see. I think we will probably have at least one or two more chances to get both a brother and a sister for the boy and girl we already have, though.
