So you work from Home & have 2 kids at home???

I'm planning to get pg ASAP. I was pg last July & lost the pg in Oct. It was a very long mc & had to wait until this month to TTC.

My ds will be 2 on 3/26.

Our largest concern in having our 2nd child is trying to figure out how I'm going to continue working. I work appox 4-5 hours a day & that is a perfect amount of time for the $$ I charge. Yet, my ds did NOT sleep the first 1.5 yrs of his life. So that time was exteremely stressful knowing I had deadlines, yet he wouldn't even take a nap.

How do you juggle it? Are you still planning on homeschooling once you have your 3rd? I need to get some ideas so when it comes time to tell the company I contract for that I'm pg ... months away still, I want to give them a plan on how I see my work situation not changing.

Luckily, I do not have to take phone calls so the majority of hours are up to me. There are times when a responses needs to be quick so I try to be available for the customer service dept during the morning hours.

Yea, Liam already knows my schedule & will pretty much stick with it. He does entertain himself all morning long. Between his entertaining himself & his nap I am able to get my hours in. If it's an off day I work at night.

I guess he knows how to entertain himself because I started this routine at 6 weeks of age. Although, his sleeping issues did stress me out quite a bit.

I figured it would get easier with 2 once the 2nd it around 9 months of age. So I am most worried about the first 9 months.

I am desperately hoping Liam will be under 3 when our 2nd is born. My goal was to have them only 2 years apart & this stupid long-lived mc really put a damper in my schedule. I am planning on preschool once Liam is 3, if not before.

**Here's to Valentine's weekend ... if dh doesn't have to go out of town I believe I can get pg in my 1st try ... I don't see why not, I've done it twice before & as far as I understand you're extra fertile after mc. I've had 2 AFs & it appears my cycles are regular enough again to completely expect O on 2/15**

Thanks for your response.
