We're doing a combo of condoms and charting. I just don't want to go back on the pill, adjust to that, and then have to worry about coming off of it to try for #2 when I know we are most likely going to start trying in another 2 years. I figure since we know we will have a second, a mistake wouldn't be that bad

But not for awhile...dear god lol

Paraguard in 2 wks... although DH told me yesterday that he is rethinking us waiting 4 yrs to have another and instead thinks we should have all our kids close together and wants to start trying in 9 months I need a few more months to recover before I can even contemplate that happening

I just started the pill again this weekend. It was weird,it had been over a year and a half since I had taken anything!

We would like another one but not for a few years. I do not want any surprises especially not this soon!

I'm testing out the nuvaring but I'm keeping my options open. Next option is iud. Originally I had planned on charting, but now I'm 99% sure that Max is it for us.

Paragard next Wednesday. After everything with nuva ring it'll be nice to WANT to have sex again. I'm nervous because ive heard good and bad but every woman is different. If it doesn't work out im thinking pill or depo. The pill was my first method when i was 18 and didn't last long and i was on depo before nuva ring and no major complaints with it.

Just charting I suppose. I went off BCP in 2008 and never want to go back. With my infertility issues its so highly unlikely we would conceive on our own anyway. We will still be careful right now but after a few months, we are open to anything. All surprises welcomed!

Lol I wish my DH was saying that. We had talked about it before and had said we'd like to wait 3-5yrs and then have 2 more close together. If it wasn't for the fact that I want to lose a bit of weight and we get a house first, then I would want to start trying when Marshall is about 18months. But because of other things I'd like to no later than when he's 3 & 1/2 and no earlier than 2 &1/2. BUT now DH is saying that as of right now his answer is no to having anymore

I'm hoping its just because we just had another and that in about 3 years he'll be ready! Maybe sooner if other things workout like planned

Yeah I would be all for having another in 18 months but we live in an apartment and I want a house before adding another person. Also we r kinda tight financially and I am the one who brings in most the money since DH is in school and he still has 3 yrs left but I dont wanna have to increase my hours to full time. On the other hand though I do want our babies close together and will probably be on board with DH in 9-10 months I love my boys so much I cant imagine not having another baby sooner rather than later. I hope your DH is like me and just needs a few months to get used to the idea!

I hope so too!

Our living situation is the biggest reason why we need/want to wait longer as well. We live in a VERY small 2br single wide. There is barely enough space for us so we would HAVE to move before we have another one. We're hoping to be able to buy a house in about a year, so maybe when Marshall is about 2 DH will agree to another

Yeah my husband doesn't know he's getting snipped, but he totally is. I sort of just told him a few days ago and his jaw dropped...oops. He'll get used to the idea especially once we are done done! We definitely have the room for more kids, we purposely bought a home to grow into instead of a starter home since the housing market is down. I like the idea of having my kids close in age, like 2-3 years apart. Of course you don't know how long it will take you to get pregnant so I could see us starting to try again when she is around 18 months.

It's funny though, when I was pregnant I was like "dear god I could NOT do this again for a longggg time" and then the first few weeks I thought to myself "maybe 1 is ok", but then a few days ago I found out my friend who has a 1 1/2 year old is pregnant with her second and I found myself going "awww I want another baby", followed quickly by "WTH am I THINKING!?".

There really must be some chemical that makes you forget the bad stuff and makes you crazy enough to think about a second child, even if it's just for a fleeting moment, while you have an 8 week old

Not this lady! When I was pg I was on the fence about a second one. Now I'm perfectly content with one!

I have an appointment set up for Essure. They do it under full anesthesia here which I'm completely afraid of so I'm going to postpone this surgery as long as possible!

Lol I told my DH he is too. I told him that if I'm the one taking care of the BC while we're still having kids, then it's only fair that he takes care of it once we're 100% sure that we're done. Plus it's alot easier procedure for him and more easily to undo. He said that I had a good point lol.

LOL I know what you mean about more kiddos. When DS2 was about 2wks I told DH "I know I want more, I always have but for now I am plenty content with closing down the baby machine for now, spending time with our two boys, get a house and THEN in about 5years try for another." I was really sold on that plan lol But then the other day I was thinking and was putting Marshall's too little clothes in the donate bag and was like "Oh maybe I should keep some of these in case we decide for another in about 2yrs and it's another boy" and ever since then I feel like I would want to try again when Marshall turns 2 or 3 lol. DH doesn't know this yet though. haha
