DH and I had some trouble TTC and it took 3 1/2 years and some help from a RE to get pregnant with Wyatt. That is one of the reasons there is such a huge age difference between Bryan and Wyatt. We "think" we have the infertility issue resolved and should not have trouble getting pregnant again. BUT since we had such a hard time last time and because we thought we would be done making all the babies we wanted to have by now we have been talking about how soon to plan out next baby. I am terrified of another long span of time TTC. I don't want a huge span of time between kids again. But I want to wait until it is safe to TTC again. So today at my 6 week check up I asked the midwife how long we should wait before TTC the next baby since I had a c-section. Her answer was 2 YEARS!!! 2 YEARS before even starting to TTC again! And if we have problems again we should not wait a full year or even 6 months. Maybe just 3 months before contacting our RE again. But seriously 2 years???!!! I hope the look of surprise was not to overwhelming on my face. LOL DH wants to start TTC again like yesterday. HA HA HA I was thinking 1 year. I thought next summer right around Wyatt's first birthday we could throw the condoms out the window and start TTC again. But now I am not sure. I do NOT want to wait 2 years to even start trying again. But I don't want to risk my health or the health of our next baby by getting pregnant to early on purpose. Accidents happen and birth control is never 100%. So I am sure it happens often that post c-section mommies end up pregnant again before 2 years. UGH! Now I am rambling because I am still in shock. LOL What have you heard about how long to wait? Do you c-section mommies have any experience? There is an 11 year span between my first and second c-section. So I am completely at a loss because it has never been an issue before. It almost made me sad to think it should be that long before we can do this all over again.
