WTT after twins
7
Mon, 05-04-2009 - 10:22pm

Hi ladies,


My name is Jessica (signature is being made soon, I hope) and I have twin girls, 18 months old. My DH and I had TTC them for 7 months and were dealing with MFI. We got sooooooo lucky and got pregnant on our own and then got doubly blessed...how ironic is that? The couple with MFI had a hyperfertile woman! LOL!


Anyway, we have been talking about ttc again (which we swore we wouldn't consider since we had twins already and the pregnancy was very difficult on me) but now we really want another baby.

I think the decision has been made to continue to wait til Oct 2010 (when the girls turn 3) so that I can enjoy Disney with them on their birthday (riding rides, etc) and so they will be a little older. It just seems so far away...but really, its only 18 months. OMG!


So, that's my story in a nutshell. I look forward to chatting and sharing with everyone!

Thank you all! I am really excited to be here. One main reason that we are waiting (not like we need another reason with the twins! HA HA!) is because we want to make sure our marriage is on track after the twins and before having another baby. To say that our love life has changed would be putting it mildly. LOL! ;)

Welcome to the board. Your girls are adorable.

I'm Kate (31) and my DF (Damion 29) are WTT for summer 2010, after our wedding. I also have a DS, Raymond who's 5.

Your girls are so darn cute! I love your siggy :-) Yes, we can be buddies. I think right now we are the only ones waiting until the fall, so I have been hanging out with the ladies in the thread for WTT until May-Aug 2010. So if you want you can join us in there. The ladies in that thread are great! I know what you mean, it does seem far away, but then again it seems like it is creeping up on me too! We are waiting for a few reasons. One is that we are trying to find DH a job with better job security, which of course is difficult to do with the current economy. One of the other reasons is that by the Fall of 2010 Alvin will be in 1st grade and Leanne will be in Pre-K. I also watch my nephew and niece 3 days a week. So by the time TTC time comes around my nephew will be in all day Kindergarten and my niece will be 3. So I figure by the time we have the baby both Alvin and Leanne will be in school fulltime along with my nephew and my niece will be in Pre-K. It won't be so hard to find someone to come and help me out after I have the baby, as I will be having a repeat c-section and this way they won't be helping me out with 5 kids under 5. Also I want to be back to my prepregnancy weight from Alvin plus another 10 pounds. I started Weight Watchers in January and have lost 34 pounds so far and want to lose another 46!


I am not worried about the age gap between #2 and #3, which will be almost 6 years because my little brother is 6 years younger than me and we are very close.

Hi Jessica!!

Your girls are precious:) I can understand being excited to have another!!!

I think choosing to wait a little bit longer will be so worth it in the end. My husband Thomas has 2 siblings and there is about a 4 year age gap between him and his sister (he is the baby) and they are SO close. Of course in their teens they weren't "best friends" but as children and now as adults they are really close.

I'm Ashley and I am starting TTC with my husband at the end of this June for our first! I'm very excited- especially since we were originally planning on waiting until 2010:)

I hope you have fun here with us!
