Hello! My name is Jess and my DH and I have a 16 month old son, Griffin. I got the Mirena inserted right after he was born, so I've only had it in for a little over a year. We were planning on waiting a while to TTC #2, but our plans have changed! We feel we are ready to give Griffin a little brother or sister now.
I am getting the Mirena taken out next Tuesday (the 26st.) DH and I are very excited to TTC #2, but are also a bit nervous (which is probably normal.) Before DS, we got pregnant, and unfortunately at 8 weeks, I miscarried. My OB told us to wait 3 AF cycles until we would give it another try, so we did, and got pregnant right away, but that ended up being a chemical pregnancy. After that, my OB thought it would be better to wait 4 cycles this time, just to let my body adjust and get back to "normal." After exactly 4 cycles later, we found out we were pregnant with Griffin, and were ecstatic! So, hopefully it won't take us very long, but we will be patient, reguardless.
So here I am. I thought I would hang out with you ladies until we TTC #2 until Spring. I don't get a real true AF with Mirena, sometimes just a day of spotting, so I know when AF is going to arrive. If I am right, I will get AF around the 26th-28th of this month (which is right after I get the Mirena removed) and then depending on if my OB wants me to count that as an AF, we will be ready to try in April. If not, May will definitely be a go ahead.
Anyway, I am super excited to TTC, and am really grateful that I found this board, so I have others to
