    I have taken a long break from PO and sad to see that it has gotten so slow here. Just checking in since we plan to start trying again soon maybe around Christmas time. Hope others are lurking and join in. A little about me...My name is Elizabeth and Dh and I have been married for almost 3 years and we have a 15 mo son named Henry. He keeps us busy so not sure when we will find time to bd. Last time it took us 6 months to get pregnant. We would wait until ds is 2 to try but we think we should try for earlier in case it takes awhile.

    I know that I said hi on the other thread but wanted to here as well! Worse case - if you happen to conceive early, you're only off your desired schedule by a few months! Several of mine are 2 - 2.5 years apart. It was a good age difference for us as while the 'older' one was a bit more independent (walking, feeding, etc.) -- they still were close enough to share interests / activities. Granted, I find benefits to all the various age ranges. LOL

    I do hope things will pick up as folks find the site more accessible. As soon as I get a few more tweaks complete I'll do some social media pushes to let more people know!

    How IS Henry doing now? Already walking and chattering more and more?

    Im friends with a few people from here on fb. 2 are pregnant and want a bb but they saw how slow its been so went to babycenter. Boo. The ladies are mean there I have heard. I think if we keep on chstting here they will return. Henry is definitely walking. More like running. He doesn't say much yet. We actually have a hearing check in a couple of weeks. He's had a lot of ear infections so they think maybe he is hearing things but not clearly. But he does understand a lot. He knows a lot of body parts and signs more and all done. I love this age. So fun to see them learning.

    Missy how old are your kiddos?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    I remember you! I can't believe your son is 15 months old already! Time sure does fly, huh? I'm also sad to see that PO has slowed down. We're thinking about ttc #2 as well but with my history and the fact that my son is a total nut (lol) is making me nervous. I'm really happy with our family the way it is, but Hubby wants another and I would like DS to have a sibling. Plus, he just started first day of Preschool/Daycare today so I'm feeling like MAYBE it is time to give it a go? Anyway, tons of luck TTC #2 and glad to see that Henry is doing great!!

    Thanks Jina! Yes well Henry is a nut too. Honestly I am terrified of another colic baby. But I too want him to have a sibling so figure why the heck not. When do you think you will TTC?

    I didn't know Henry had colic, I'm sorry, that must have been difficult. Lucas didn't have colic but he was and still is....um....not an easy baby. As much as I want to space them 2 years apart, it's just not in the cards for us. I think 3 years apart is more realistic, so, we'll probably start trying beginning of next year. That is, IF, we decide for sure to have another. DH is on board 100% but I am still on the fence a bit. :/ Are you guys still thinking about waiting until Henry is 2?

    Anyway, are you enjoying the cooler weather we're having?

    It was cool and now a bit warm again. But usually October is the last of the really hot stuff. So we had a free moment on our cabin vacation and JLIH. I went into classic phantom symptom mode. But in the end AF came. So we were going to just keep letting it happen, but I went for a job interview and I have a second next week and if they offer me a position, I will probably take it because I need better insurance before having another baby. So DH and I discussed that due to a new job, that we should probably wait until at least the summer to start TTC. I know he is right, but I'm kind of upset about it. I really kind of wanted my kids to be closer together, I'm also worried its going to be hard to conceive the second time around being 34 and all. But it will give me time to focus and finish up my professional exams and do things with Henry and maybe go on a real vacation that lasts more than 2 days.

    How did the follow up interview go? Did you finish up your professional exams? I hope you guys were able to take a real vacation. I understand about the fear of not conceiving as quickly with #2. 34 is still very young and I'm sure you'll have a healthy and uneventful pregnancy.
