Hi everyone! My name is Candice (30), and I'm married to a wonderful man, Jeremy (30). We have a DD who is 19 months old. We're a Coast Guard family, and we're living in New Jersey. We're both from New York (classic city girl meets country boy as I'm from NYC and he's from the Catskills). We've been married for 2 years now.
After DD was born (she was unplanned), I was pretty overwhelmed with motherhood and I doubted I would ever have any more children. Boy was I wrong! LOL. Now that DD is older and now that I've learned so much and truly love being a momma, I want a second child badly. I miss holding a baby, their smell, their sounds... And I feel like we're not complete until we have another baby. Does anyone else feel like that?
Because we're a military family, part of our lifestyle includes moving every 3-4 years. They call the move time 'transfer season'. We're transferring in June 2010, so we are on hold to try until minimally February 2010. Because we don't want to split OB care between 2 docs and possibly 2 states, we have to wait until we find out where we're moving before we try. We find out in February where we are going. If we're staying in the area, we can start trying in Feb, but if we're moving, we'll have to wait until we move in June to try.
We tried last month (baby would have been born in May before transfer season), and got a BFN. We were kind of shocked that we didn't conceive because DD was conceived so easily, and we used a fertility monitor, OPKs, and we timed our BDing just right. I trust that there is a reason for everything and that the universe has a plan for us all, and having our second baby just wasn't meant to be at this time.
It's going to be a long 5-8 month wait.
