Hey there! Welcome to the TTC board, and first off, let me assure you, we ALL "feel crazy" in one way or another here. LOL. TTC is a very exciting (and definitely sometimes scary) time for all of us, and that's what we all are here for, to help support each other. I am 23, DH is 26, and we are currently in our first month of TTC #1. I understand about what you mean about "almost had an oopsie and was sad that nothing came of it", and I just think that your true feelings come out when something like that happens, and you are right in you'll "figure it out". Just follow your heart and do the best you can.

As of organizing tips, I have a 3 BR/ 2BA and it's just me and my husband right now and I can barely keep this house straight with HIM messing around, much less kids. hahaha. Bless your heart. I bet you have your hands full. You'll be fine though, the close proximity of the kids will just make them closer......because they can't escape!!:smileytongue: LOL! I'm teasing you, but really, good luck TTC and again welcome to the board. Hopefully we both will get BFP soon and move over to the "expecting" boards. :smileyhappy:

In a way great things happen when you get a little "crazy"

Thank you both for your replies! They made me laugh and feel better. You are right, sometimes the best things really do appear out of craziness.
We will have a tiny home filled with lots of love :)

And yes, while TTC #1 we had every emotion in the world. #2 was a surprise.... The best surprise! We new we wanted two, but didn't expect it so quickly. And with each child, there were about all the same worries.... Well, it feels good to vent about it!!

Thanks for your input!

When we got PG with #2 we were in a 900 sq. ft. apt- 2 bed, 1 bath. Plus 3 cats. We got our first home when our DS's were 5 and 18mos. WOW the apt was crowded at that point.

Now we have a 3 bed 1 bath, 1100 sq. ft. (including garage space) house and have 2 dogs, 3 cats and a huge yard. The house is small, but we pared down alot, and have a shed in the back and the garage for storage.

Space wasn't even a concern when thinking of #3. Sharing a bathroom right now isn't too bad, it just takes strategy and planning- if I had to share with teenagers, I'd probably tell a different story!

It's good to hear of others tight spaces!
There is no room for a garage, but we are working on putting a shed.... Somewhere. Our yard is so small and is mostly a downward hill. Dh has been working his butt off since last year trying to renovate the back yard to be a bit more functional. It has been a slow moving project because it is only him doing it. On his days off, it is raining or there are things planned with family/friends, or he is working OT. Ha, thats the way it goes, right!
It will def be better when we get the upstairs room done. We will prob have to get some public storage for all the other misc stuff.
I dont mind the kids sharing a room... At least for now, like you said, until they are teenagers! If they were same sex, it wouldn't matter as much.
For baby #3, it does not matter which sex we get, I am not leaning one way or another. I do hope to convince dh to be surprised with the sex this time around! We found out the first two times, I'd like to have this one a surprise :)
Well, I think I am at the end of my supposed O days, so I am not thinking this month will carry any good news. We have been too tired/busy lately..... But that's ok... I keep going back and forth with everything, I am good with just taking our time :)

Well wishes to all!
