planning next baby??

Is anyone already planning their next baby, or thinking about when to try again?


For current preggos and TTCers...how close do you want your children to be?


AFM, DH and I talked about trying again next summer if we are financially ready. We want Kaylee to have a close sibling...but it all depends on money!!

Well, this will be our last for sure. You can tell from our spacing, though that we were never big on having them close together. (12, 8, & 5 at the moment) Well the first two would have been a little less than 3 years apart instead of 4 if we hadn't had a couple of MC's.


Personally I'm just not able to cope with the super active/ doesn't understand No or much else yet 18-24 mth old & a new baby at the same time. I'm glad I never had to try. :) I also really love savoring every moment when they're little & the world is so new to them. I still

Kristy Lee, we'll also try again next summer! :-) Starting in July to be precise. So we might end up being PG together, ha ha!

Right now I plan to start trying for the 4th (and last) one around March/April.

Based on money, we will be waiting till spring/early summer 2011. Well that is if DH will agree to a third, which I think he will, but I am not pushing it yet. I like the 23 month difference between Desmond and Eloise, but it was really tough for the first 4 months and has just started getting semi-easy now 6 months in. I think a 3 year difference will be an interesting change.

That being said I am enjoying the 2 year difference, but due to money issues, we want to be out of debt before having number 3, I won't be starting to TTC again until spring/summer 2011. That being said I am looking forward to slightly more independent children when the next one is born. It is challenging when they are both really babies and the older one doesn't understand why you aren't paying attention to them "right now"!

haha yay! DH was surprisingly on board about trying again so soon. He was all for it, but he said it had to be my decision becuase I had such a hard pregnancy and I got so sick with the preeclampsia at the end.

Lol, I must be abnormal, because I'm always surprised that grads with babies Ry's age or younger are thinking about TTC again.

I adore Ry and he's awesome, but I just don't have that urge. Our family feels complete for right now. We know we want to have another one at some point so Ry can have a sibling, but we can't afford it and have no room in our tiny house for another one until DH finishes his PhD in a couple of years, so it's not even a discussion right now. My best guess is will probably be TTC #2 in 2012 or 2013.

As of right now, I think after we had our first we will probably start TTCing again as soon as my fertility returns or six months if AF shows up sooner than six months. Since it will (hopefully) have ended up taking us almost two years to conceive our first, we won't wait at all.

However, I would not start taking fertility meds (if I need them again) until the first LO is 12 months.

So if I get PG soonish, we would have our first in June or July 2010 and start trying for number 2 in the winter/spring of 2011.

Of course, maybe having our first baby will turn all our plans around, so who knows. But I always wanted to have two close together before waiting a longer span (4-5 years) before having a third.

I understand what Megan's saying, I only know when we are going to ttc #2 bc we have already agreed on it. Part of me feels I would be ok with just Daphne, pregnancy does not agree with me. We will start ttc summer/fall of 2011 and if all goes well #2 (our last) will be born in germany.




Thank you to Dedi, Shelle, Tanya, & Elena for my super fab siggies!

Of course my response could change once #1 gets here, but DH and I would like our kids to be no more than 2 years apart. DH and his sister are 1 year, 1 day
