We are expecting #3!!!!!!! We just had our rainbow baby, Emily, this past April via csec. She just turned 8 months on Christmas! We were NOT trying so this is very unplanned and a surprise lol. I didn't even get my first pp af until Dec 2 because I have been breastfeeding Emily.

I was using ovulation strips to see when I was ovulating so I would know when we shouldn't have sex. I got a + opk Dec 23. We did have sex 2 or 3 days before I got my + so I am sure that is how it happened.

Anyway, I am a little scared because normally we would wait AT LEAST 1 yr after a csection before trying since that is what is recommended. I think everything will be ok but just not sure how comfortable I am with a VBA2C. I want to be but I just need to research some more I guess.

Please no mention on FB if we are friends. Most of my mommy friends know which is fine but mainly I am kinda dreading telling our family! I think they will be happy but they know we need a bigger house so bad and already have a hard time with finances etc. My husband and I were JUST looking at new houses a few days before we found this out lol. We are hoping to get something bigger once we pay off 2 loans we have with our taxes....if our return is going to be enough of course.

Also I am also a little worried bc we have had losses before. I wasn't ready to have that worry again you know? I feel like I didn't have time to mentally prepare myself for the "what ifs" I guess.

We are happy about it but just have a lot on our plate right now with needing a bigger home and now we are going to have to buy a van lol. The whole thing is just crazy and we can't believe it LOL.

My OB intake appt is this coming week and then I will try to get an appt for the following week after that (6 weeks) so they can do a viability u/s and most likely start me right back on the lovenox injections.

That's great news. I'm so happy for you guys. Sending lots of sticky dust your way. I understand about needing more room. we want one more but right now we have no room. DH is planning of finishing the upstairs so we have another bedroom. I'm sure you guys will figure something out!!

Sperm are tricky things, I heard they can wait up to 5 days waiting for you to ovulate.

Congrats on the BFP and I hope you get your vbac~ I hope to have the same come time for #2
Im scared about getting pregnant again until at least a year out. Ideally 2. I have the mirena IUD and Im breastfeeding (I still get spotting )So hopefully we won't have another until the time is right.
