Sooooo....my name is Jenifer...I am a mom of 2....Rylan (my son is 3) and Ava (my daughter is 2) and I want a third now...lol BUT I know that it makes more sense...time & money wise to wait until spring to TTC.


HOw do you ladies do it...? how do you not lose your mind...?


Both our children were wonderful surprises sooo this TTC will be a new journey for my husband and I....

thanks for the welcome....


well....not alot on the to-do list....I know there is never the 'perfect time' to have a child and it will happen when it should....but.... DH is not ready for #3....DS & DD were pleasant 'surprises' and things are just settling down around our household, he is not willing to throw a newborn into that mix...at this time.....soooooo hopefully time....I would like a more stable, grounded job. I am only working 12 hrs a week and doing relief so...things are tight.


I would also like to lose about 10-15...even 20 lbs because I put on alot of baby weight lol

Welcome Jenifer! Nice to meet you! My name is Becki, I'm 23 and Paul and I are WTT our first. We are hoping things will work out financially such that we can start TTC late summer 2010. I am hoping for a new job soon, which will make a big difference.

What are some of the things on your to-do list before TTC #3?

I see you are on a weight-loss journey...I would also like to lose 15-20 lbs before having #3! Hopefully I can find some support here and not feel so depressed...!

Hi Jenifer! Welcome to the forum! I love your children's names! :)

How do I not lose my mind? I honestly don't know, lol! I surprise myself being more and more jealous of friends with babies. But I'm trying to stay focus on my WTT reasons and goals, and know that I just can't have them right now. So that helps, plus preparing mentally for decisions concerning birth and raising, etc. Best of luck in your journey! :)
