Another TOC Newbie! :)

I've been lurking here a little bit and just thought I'd introduce myself.

I have a 14 month old little girl and my husband and I have been talking more and more about when we're going to start trying for our next. I've been a little hesitant cause my pregnancy and labor was very difficult, but I'm starting to get the baby fever again. Smile As difficult as it all was, my little girl was definitely worth it. And they say every pregnancy is different right...? I'm *really* hoping that's true in my case!

We're thinking we're going to start trying around July-September '12. Not sure yet, but we'll see as the date gets closer. Wink

Anyway, hi!

Cindy!!! Smile Love the new pics of Sophia!

I've been hanging out here on this board for awhile. We were originally thinking of TTC in July, but are now looking at October for financial reasons. Every pregnancy and baby is different. I hope #2 is much kinder to you during the pregnancy!

I've been in and out of here because I get so frustrated that I have to wait. We are waiting until around September in order for me to have the bedt chance and less of a fight for a vbac.

Star: Awesome! It's good to know I'm not going to have to wait much longer than others in here. We're hoping for a boy... kind of... Wink

Mel: Thanks! I noticed you were in here too! It's good to see a friendly face. Smile I'm really hoping about it being easier.. We'll see...

Wendy: I'd really like a VBAC too. I'm going to talk to my doctor about it and really research it, just cause my pregnancy was pretty high risk and labor/delivery was pretty scary for me. We'll see, but I really want that natural birth!!!

My local hospital is low risk only and pretty strict on the 2 year rule between pregancy/ birth which is why we are waiting. The two obs there are both old school so would prefer to just schedule a repeat c section. I have heard a rumour one may be retiring so hopefully some new blood will help.

Oh I didn't even know about the 2 year rule? I thought it was 1 year. I've had a c-section.. So do they mean 2 years for the actual birth or 2 years before you can conceive?
