Croix is only 7 mo. old but I've been thinking about the next kid since I was pregnant with him. The fact that it took us 2 years to get pregnant with Croix makes it so hard to plan when to start ttc (trying to conceive). In my perfect little world I'd have the next baby (which will be a girl I've already placed my order) when Croix is 2 1/2. I think that spacing is perfect! I could have Croix potty trained so I'm not changing diapers on two babies. He'd be old enough to help out a little, to understand what's going on, he'd hopefully be a little more independent. So with that said if it takes us two years to get pregnant again we should be trying again already!! I am SO not ready to be pregnant! I also don't want babies really close together. I think that would be so hard. I don't want to start trying too soon and end up not having any difficulties and getting pregnant right away and having two kids in less then two years. But I don't want to wait too long thinking that my body has figured it out so we wont have nay problems and have it take two years, or longer, and have them be like 5 years apart. That seems too far. I had the flu, or food poisoning or something yesterday and as I was getting extremely nauseous I was having a mild panic attack in my head......WHAT IF I'M PREGNANT!!!!
Since part of the reason we couldn't get pregnant was my whacked out hormones we decided to not use hormonal birth control. Now that my body has finally figured out how to get pregnant I don't want to go messing with things by taking hormones. Well the options that are left don't feel very reliable to me. So I have this ridiculous problem. I'm constantly worried I'm pregnant, or going to get pregnant and I'm worrying about not being able to get pregnant and it taking us a long time again! How is that fair?
*Worst case scenario in both directions are easier and better then no babies!
*We are not ttc!
*I know some people who have difficulties ttc with the first do not have any problems with subsequent children. I also know personally at lest 3 families that have. It can go either way!
