Just getting started....again
Mon, 07-30-2012 - 6:43pm

Hello all!  I'm back to the TTC boards! Yeah!  I'm just getting past an early miscarriage/D&C - and have had my first AF, finally - it was the longest cycle I've had it a long time.  But here we go! 

I've been a bit surprised by my mixed feeling about TTC again.  I'm 38 SAHM, have two great kids DS4 and DDalmost6.  DH and I have been talking on and off for about 2 years now if we want to go for #3.  Until recently, we've said we're so happy about our current 'dynamic', the kids play well, are now in preschool and K everyday - life is definitely getting easier.  But recently I've kept imagining another baby/sibling and it's felt so good!  and when we really talked about it - he said he's wanted it for a while, but he thought I was against it!  So we decided to try and surprise! it happened pretty fast on our 2nd cycle!  But then at the 8 w u/s found out it was a blighted ovum and a missed miscarriage, so I needed and D&C  :smileysad:  

the two weeks or so after the mc, I kept feeling i didn't want to try again, that our family was all set, and the extra work/finances, etc wasn't what we wanted.  But in the last two weeks, I'm feeling more like myself, and my energy up - so I am definitely feeling better.  So we're here again.  Wish us luck - I won't actually O until mid-August - so we're waiting.  

Good luck to all you ladies - I hope everyone gets fast and stickly BFPs!

Sorry to hear about your MC.  I hope your BFP comes quickly this time around and sticks for 9 months :smileyhappy:  I only have 1 DD right now and we definitely know we want 2....we're still up in the air about 3+.  I keep telling DH to move 1 at a time.  i can see how it might be difficult to upset the dynamic you have going, but good luck in your TTC journey!
