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!!

I am sad to say that I think Elena will be an only child. I've said it before, but this time I mean it. Only now it's all DH. I would be open to

We're undecided. I definitely don't want my kids any further than 3 years apart. Honestly, pregnancy/labor/new baby phase/etc. we're not that hard for me, so in some ways I'd be open to trying again once I get my cycles back. But who knows when that will be. Also I think Dh wants to wait until James is at least one, so we'll see.

DH is working on a PhD now, and when he finishes he's thinking about getting a postdoc oversees. If he does that, I'd really like to have our next baby here in the US before we move. So, that's what we decide to do, I'd want to have our next baby before May 2011, which means TTC next spring/summer.

Mariana - Love your new siggy! You look so beautiful among those flowers!


Kelly - I'm sorry to hear about the way your DH is feeling right now but I agree with Ash that he could still change. Friends of ours have a 2-1/2 y/o

Most likely it would be Germany, since Dh knows of a group there that does similar research to what he currently does. We would be willing to go pretty much anywhere in Europe though.

Germany! Cool! It's a beautiful country - I was there as part of a European tour in 2001.


Hey, at least you'll know one person there - Ash! :-)

DH and I have talked about just not preventing once Barrett turns 1 - I'd really like my kids about 2 years apart. But now I think I'm going for my Irish dance teaching certification which involves a weekend long test in which you have to teach several dances as well as perform a lot of dances - they only offer the test 2x per a year in the US, so I will probably take it in January 2011, and I don't want to be super pregnant for it - the judges expect you to dance up to par no matter what your condition! so... that means I'm waiting until next fall probably. Hopefully we'll get pregnant quickly and have about a 2.5 year space between siblings.

I'll be the evil woman and admit that I am not a fan of the newborn/infant stage. I am incredibly envious of women who have easygoing babies.

OK, totally late jumping in here, but DH and I are planning on TTC in June/July of 2011. That will give me one solid race season before TTC again.
