Hi everyone,

I'm new to this board. I have twins that are 18 months old, one boy and one girl. We had always talked about having two kids, one boy and one girl, so our family seems perfect.

It took us almost a year and our first round of clomid to conceive the twins. When I was in early pregnancy, I had spotting. The ultrasound showed 3 growing babies. We lost the third baby a week later.

Ever since then, I had the feeling that we were supposed to know about that third baby. I believe God gives us what we can handle and he didn't think we were ready for 3 babies at that time. I do think we're supposed to have that third baby though.

It took me over a year to tell my husband about this feeling. It took him another 6 months to talk to me about it again. We've now decided we want another child in our family but we're not ready financially or logistically yet.

We are waiting until this Summer to try. I worry that it will take us a long time or that it will never happen. I'm glad to find this board to help with my baby fever and this feeling of hopelessness for the child that will complete our family.

Wow that was longer than I expected! Sorry about that.

I'm Rebecca (35) and we are also WTT until the summer. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I can't imagine raising twins! They must loads of fun and a little overwhelming at times :)


I have one DS who is also 18 months and I have yet to talk to my DH about TTC! Eekkk!! (we have talked about having another kid, he just doesn't know that I want to TTC this summer)


Welcome!

Hi Rebecca,

Was your son born in July or August? My twins were born on August 7th. You should talk to your husband. You might be surprised. I thought mine was dead set on not wanting more kids but I was completely taken aback by what he said. I started the conversation by writing a long truthful letter.

Thanks, Kate! Btw, you can call me Katie if you want. I'm Kate on my twins' playgroup board cause there's another really active Katie. But I go by both.

Good luck on your wedding! It's coming up soon :)
PS. I love your name siggy. It's really beautiful.

My DS was born July 30th. I was due on August 9th though!! :)


We have talked about it briefly recently. But my DH is between jobs right now. So that's all he is thinking about. He basically said he couldn't imagine having another child right now. But did say that he wants to have a brother or sister for DS. He starts his new job in a week so I'm hoping that once he gets settled and a couple of months pass, we can revisit that discussion and talk more about TTC.

I was due September 13th but they came more than 5 weeks early!

I know people say "It'll never be the right time to have a baby" but some things do need attention first. I'm glad you're both on the same page about getting settled into the job first. I'm glad he has a job to go to!

Thanks, Molly :) That's awesome about your husband graduating in October. I'll be finishing my master's degree in August (another reason to delay TTC). I hope he finds a job soon. It's tough out there right now.
