Getting sucked into the pregnancy vortex

I just found out that one of my favorite aunts is pregnant! I'm so excited for her and I like her so much that I want us to be pregnant together. I have a huge family so there's always more than one pregnancy at a time. When I mentioned this, another aunt said she might TTC, too. And yet another aunt just suffered a miscarriage, but will also probably be pregnant in a few months because she never prevents and is very fertile. A quad pregnancy sounds so exciting! We also have two couples getting married this summer, my sister and my uncle. They both say they're going to wait, but I think my sister is lying to take the pressure off. Quint pregnancies, anyone? I'll definitely TTC sometime during my aunt's pregnancy, but the question is when. My husband wants to not try, not prevent, but that's completely impossible for me because I use NFP and I'm so attuned to my body. Plus, I want to know when I conceive. Sorry if this is so confusing, but I'm so hyper right now!!!!

It's great to hear from someone in the same boat! I'm so happy for you that you're trying. Good luck! By the way, are you posting in Trying to Conceive? Not that I'm stalking you or anything...

Welcome Geneva! Congrats to your Aunt! That sounds like so much fun, I would love to have pregnancy buddies while i'm pregnant! It would be so nice to have other family members in the same boat. My best friend got pregnant and then both of her sisters got pregnant right after her so they are all really close in age! It's adorable to see them all together and they got the cutest pregnancy pictures!


Congrats on starting TTC soon! Not preventing sounds like trying to me!

Thanks for responding! My aunt is getting really excited, too. She just bought a new house, so she'll be nice and prepared when this baby comes. I was pregnant with two of my sisters, too. Now we all have toddlers together. I really like having people who are just as excited as I am. I hate when no one wants to talk about pregnancy or babies. I'm still not sure when to get pregnant. I talked about it with my sisters, but everyone had an opinion and I didn't really like the idea of them knowing too early. Whenever I see a BFP is when I think others should know. I think that's what freaked my husband out. So now my sisters are out of the planning, but still excitedly anticipating a BFP sometime. The question is when? I still can't decide.

I lurk around "Trying to Conceive," but I'm really trying to avoid the intensity of the TTC efforts that seem to run wild over there (at least it seemed that way when I was TTC #2).

I hope that I end up there soon, too! And good luck with the TTC!
