Hi ladies, just wanted to introduce myself here- I'm new to this board, but not new to ivillage.
I'm a mom of a 10 month old little girl, as well as a full-time step mom to two girls (8 and 9.5) I'm a SAHM currently.
We would like to have another child, just can't seem to figure out when. I just began taking birth control (the mini-pill) 2 months ago. Some days I feel like I want the next baby to be very close in age with my daughter, but most days I feel like a 3 year gap may be better. I'd really LOVE to get the sleep deprivation done with all at once, but then again I wouldn't want my daughter's "baby phase" to be cut short by having to share the attention with a younger sibling so soon.
So, as for me -my tentative plans right now are to start TTC in May 2010. DH goes back and forth on when he wants to have another (he is looking forward to being able to retire and have some fun while we are still young, because as he pointed out- he's been raising kids since he was 20!) so the longer we wait to have the next one will be the longer we'll still have kids in the house, lol.
I'm glad there's a board for us who are in waiting!
