Hi There,

Just thought I would check in with anyone who's interested. Also, typing my thoughts helps me to see in black in white what is going on and somehow makes things more real.

Anyway, My baby #1(Alex)will be 5 months next week and I have been wanting to TTC #2 for a few months now. Hubby reluctantly agreed to try FINALLY (he is concerned about finances and managing the brood since he has 2 DD from first marriage and DS with me). My OB Dr. said to tell hubby it's now or never, there's no waiting to get ready, and it may be hard to TTC #2 bc I am overweight from Baby #1 and a year older than when we tried last year(I'm 42 now). Also, OB brought up the chromosome risks as well with being older.

Last month I did OPK for the first time since delivering and did not see any positives. However, I may have tested on the wrong days because I tested according to days I got OPK+ last year which was CD12. This month, I got a positive OPK today which I think was CD 16! Last year, I always got OPK+ on CD12. Maybe cycle changed after baby?

Anyway, we bd'd today with bottoms up (pillow under bottom, legs in air) so we are officially trying now it seems as long as hubby does not back out. I was so happy to see that double line on the OPK! I did not think I was ovulating again after the baby!

I am going on too long so will stop there. Any thoughts or feedback on TTC #2 are appreciated.
