Popping in again...

I may actually be joining this board if things keep going the way they have been. Dh and I had a really productive talk yesterday and seem to be leaning toward ttc Baby #3. A little background: I'm 34, dh is almost 30. We've been married 7.5 years and have a dd, Skyler May born 9/9/99 and a ds, Connor Patrick born 4/4/02. Our basic issues have been space...vehicle space and house space...and my health (I developed very high bp with my last pregnancy). We've also had two m/c's prior to having Skyler due to hormone abnormalities. However, yesterday we had a BIG talk about the issues and decided that since we are planning on purchasing both a larger home in the next 12-18 months and a larger car for dh in the next 6-8 months that space isn't really an issue any longer. AS for my health, this is tougher. My FIL's first wife died in childbirth (40 years ago) and that has left dh with a fear of that happening to me...understandable and hard to deal with even after 2 successful pregnancies. Also, I'm very overweight although thanks to doing Atkins, I'm now 30 lbs less than when I got pregnant with both of my kids. I'm also planning to continue with the weight loss program until I get pregnant or until I reach my goal weight...whichever comes first. So here I am, WTT while dh and I come to a final decision that I hope places me here for a few months. Ideally, I like to start ttc sometime between Sept. 2003 and Jan 2004. I'd definitely like to have #3 before I turn 36 in Jan 2005. Besides that would keep the kids fairly close in ages...2-2.5 years between each. Thanks for reading all this. I'll be around.

Welcome Tracy! Your name sounds familiar, maybe during my stay here at iVillage I've run into you on one board or another. I'll be here until mid 2004 or 2005. Ideally I'd like to have our 2nd sometime before I turn 35 in July 2006.

I hope that you enjoy your stay!

Julia, I think we were both here at WTT back in 2000, maybe. I was pretty much a regular here from Jun 2000 to May 2001. I think you were just weesmittysmom then. Good luck on your wait! Like I said in my post, we still aren't definite but seem to be leaning this way.
