I've finally come to a place where I'll be ok if we have another. Dh is more prepared than I am. I'm not on b/c but there was never a need to prevent pregnancy as I'm still bleeding. So I'm not sure if a third baby would even happen at this point (totally feeling like the woman in the bible who bled for 12 years and touched Jesus' robe to be healed).

For those of you that are I'll just live vicariously through you!!! I'm going to start saving the 5000$ now for the big v reversal! Just have to convince DH to go through with it!

Yep, we are baking #3. It is hard to believe that I am the first BFP. I surely thought there were others.

I would love to be TTC and we have decided on going for a third in awhile....

Our main hurdles are:
1. Cost of daycare. Currently we are at almost $3K/month. I think we want to wait until DD1 is in grade 1 and has only after school care to worry about. Financially I think we'd be better off with a nanny at that point but I like the interaction with other kids at daycare and I have more confidence of the TV level so I'm not sure.
2. My first 2 were on Canadian mat leave where I had a year off. My USA job now gives 8 weeks Sad Our goal is for us to return to Canada and have me get a new job long enough to qualify. However, I am getting old (36) so I may quit my job when I have #3 and just start looking for a new job after the baby would be out of the infant room.

Basically we are looking at TTC early 2014. I can't wait but I also can't imagine being pregnant with as tired as I currently feel Smile

Updated to here!

Beth, when's your EDD? I know it's early, but will you be finding out sex or going team green?

We are team green. My EDD is Aug 4 just based on LMP. I don't think that is completely accurate though. We will see what they have to say when I go in for my fist appt. (yet to be scheduled).

We will be starting TTC with my next cycle! (DH and I agreed to wait until after the New Year... ) DH has been joking that he hopes it takes a couple of months because so far with the other kids we nailed it the first month we tried.

As much as I adore babies and LOVE being pregnant, we are done. I had my tubes tied and I am at peace watching my family mature. I will just have to live thru all of you!!

Hey Beth, any update? Have you gone public yet? Told family? Scheduled the first appointment?

(There are so many of us living vicariously through you- you've gotta keep us going here! lol)

I'm a little nervous I might be pregnant. I stopped bleeding on the 1st, had pink spotting on the 5th. Last week I decided to start checking the position of my cervix and found out I had a prolapsed uterus (my cervix was just inside my vagina). After lots of research I decided to just monitor it and do more kegels. A few days ago i had major hip and ligament pain in my stomach. I checked it today and it moved up. Way up. I've been nauseous and tired all week but chalked it up to a stomach bug. Last week I had pain in my breasts. Today I'm dizzy.

It could all be nothing, or maybe my body trying to ovulate now. But of course my brain takes the most dramatic path. I was kind of hoping it would take us a while to get pregnant.

Nope, not pregnant. I was taking vitamin k per the midwifes suggestion to try and stop the incessant bleeding. I stopped taking it last week with all the nausea I was having and started a heavy period yesterday. My guess is that my body was trying to ovulate which caused all the symptoms but not taking the vitamin k caused the bleeding to come back.

I actually think it may have been a m/c. The cramping was very painful, I was going through a heavy pad an hour all weekend and passed multiple clots and tissue and have been very lightheaded and tired. Combine that with my symptoms last week, and it was probably a m/c. I'm not horribly torn up about it as it was so early, I'm not even sure about it, I already have my hands full and I've also been sick this weekend. But I'm concerned about how difficult it will be to get pregnant again.

Are you going to have it confirmed with blood work?

No, I've been down this road before. And I'd really rather not know for sure. I'm planning on going to a hematologist to discuss my blood clotting disorders soon.

Joni, I'm so sorry and I hope you feel better and can get some answers from your doctor.

We are definitely done- DH had a vasectomy when Ronan was about six months old, and I do not regret it! I just get way too sick during pregnancy... I can't imagine doing that again with two little ones to take care of. DH, on the other hand, has mentioned several times lately that he kind of wishes we were going to have a third, but he's okay with how things are, and he doesn't want to change our lifestyle to be able to afford another (I would have to go back to work, rather than being a SAHM). I will just enjoy hearing about all the new babies!

You're on the list, Mari. Smile We're in the same boat as you- not sure if we're done or not. We just reevaluate from time to time!

Thank you! I was waiting until my first appt. (which will be Tuesday) to make it official over here. We still haven't told any family or anything.

No, totally fine... almost made it to 8 weeks and so far, so good. I'm just so nervous before that first official dr. appt.

Updated to here! Glad you are public now, Wendy! Are you planning to find out gender?

(Sorry for the delay! I gave up my laptop/FB/message boards for Lent and just hadn't gotten back on yet.)
