WTT #2, a little nervous

Hi

My husband and I have decided to try for our second in the next couple of months. However, I am wondering if there is anyone else out that is nervous about getting pregnant a second time.

I think it's normal to be nervous. We are TTC #2 in July. My son just turned 2 in December and I'm hoping he'll be 3 no older than 3.5 when I have another. I'm a little nervous because David was such a hard baby. he had colic from about 4 weeks to 2 months old. Then he has been the worst sleeper. Never slept through the night until 13 months. I just hope my next one is a little easier especially since I will have to deal with a toddler also.

I also had a picture perfect pregnancy. No morning sickness, food issues like other women have. I only had some heartburn (which is normal as I have IBS) and some headaches and backaches at the end. I'm worried I'l be dealing with all the symptoms and a 2.5 year old and also working full time and no clue how I'll do it. Maybe I'll luck out again and feel fine though. I'm hoping that is the case.

I'm actually more nervous it will take me a long time to get pregnant this time. It took me 4 cycles with our son and my husband wants a summer baby so he agreed to start in July. I would like June but you never know if you'll get pregnant right away or if it'll take awhile. I know I used pre seed the month I got pregnant with David so I plan on using it again. I also came off of 10+ years of BCP which I think is part of the reason it helped

It sounds like our situations are similar.

Hi Jacki! Welcome to the board!

I am Victoria and DH and I are WTT our first! I obviously have no experience trying for a second, but I think with kids, it is hard to plan as anything can happen! You never know though, you may get an equally as easy of a baby!
