Here is my journal for baby #3

Daniel and I are ready to start actively trying for our third baby; after a couple months of heartache, crazy emotions, LOTS of talking, and NTNP we are ready to officially start the TTC journey.

Daniel and I have always wanted a large family, we've always discussed having 4 or 5 kids. Our plan was put into action early with our (best) surprise (ever), Eli 6 months later we were pregnant with our second little miracle! Now here we are again, ready to add to our family.

This time will be different.
This is the first time we will be "trying" to get pregnant. I am nervous and scared, yet anxious at the same time. I know that this means BFNs will be harder to take in, I hope I'm ready for that (if it happens).
This time will also be different because of Finley. I know that this will be a roller coaster of emotions. There are so many things going on in my head: "Will people think I am trying to replace her? What if we have another girl? How will I feel? Am I going to be a basket case the whole time? What if we lose another pregnancy? What if we lose another baby? Will I be okay? Will Daniel be okay?" This is just a small portion of my brain on overload

All of that to say.... I am ready. We are ready. We are praying for another blessing

Awww... Kelli!

What a PERFECT day to start your TTC #3 journal!

We are all here for you, and I hope the TTC journey is NOT a rocky one. We're going to be riding that roller coaster ride with you, the whole way through! It's different when you are actively trying, but whatever you do, especially in the first couple months (and here's to praying it doesn't take you long), just enjoy one another and really know that your love is going to make yet another beautiful baby to add to your family.

If you EVER need any insight or btdt advice or whatever from someone who's done the "try" effort, I'd be happy to help. I'm full of interesting fertility knowledge

I CAN'T WAIT to meet White Baby #3!!!!! (whooooa... slow down, nelly.... OK, I CAN'T WAIT for your journey!!!)

Thank you girls

CD 4

My period only lasted 3 days (then residual bleeding today). My periods are always short, but this one didn't even seem that heavy. I have no idea what this means??

I'm finding myself having anxiety about getting pregnant. I want to be pregnant so badly, but at the same time I am so scared. This might be harder than I anticipate.

That being said, I think of baby names ALL. THE. TIME.

Light periods could be anything and nothing I've had pretty light periods and they've not impacted fertility in the slightest (obviously). Mine are usually 4 days, with 2 light 1 med and 1 heavy... typically (not all the time).

FX that this can be your cycle! Any plans? or are you guys going to take a relaxed approach and see what happens?

Do you usually have pretty good signs of ovulation, so you can tell? (CM, o pains, anything else)



As for being nervous, that is so natural after what you've been through. I can only pray that you have peace when you do get your BFP. I can't imagine the conflict between being elated and scared, but know we're here for you and the feelings are all so natural!

^ I guess we are taking the "relaxed" approach? I'm not charting (besides for tracking when my periods are and when we DTD) or using OPKS or anything like that, we are just having lots of sex. As in, every day since my period ended
I've heard to do every other day while TTC, but I really don't know. I just figure lots of sex might do the trick, right?

I think I will be able to tell when I O since my periods have been regular. I also get lots of CM and O pains.

Thanks Gwynne! Any knowledge you can impart would be greatly appreciated

I think you've got the important stuff covered

Just a gentle thought (although you both are young, so your "stats" are probably pretty freaking good)... It takes 36-72 hours for sperm to "replenish" so they do suggest going every other day in the beginning to keep the stash rebuilding and healthy, and then when you think you are approaching the big O day (even a couple days before), start the 1/day...

With this one, we did the Egg Meets Sperm Plan It's pretty similar to above, but there's actually a plan of attack Hopefully, you won't need it (it entails using OPK's) , but if you do, you can always google it.

Thanks Gwynne, I think we will probably do every other like you said and then daily when I am close to Oing. If we don't get pregnant this cycle I think I'm going to look into OPKs and stuff, so I will have to google that plan you mentioned

7 DPO

I'm getting antsy to test!!! When do you guys usually start testing??

I've been having lots of "symptoms" that could also mean nothing. Lots of CM, my nose is hypersensitive (like I can smell myself and I am super self concuous about it! TMI), I am a bottomless pit for sweets, and bbs were tender this morning. Like I said it could be nothing or something!?

When should I test??!!
I have a feeling if it's BFN I will be really emotional about it
