I figured I'd do a journal to keep me busy and write down all my crazy, too impatient to want to WTTC emotions.
So, let's start. I'm Melanie, 27 and DH is John (32) we have one son Frankie who is 4 months old. We have decided to start to TTC our second baby at the end of Sept beginning of Oct. My cycles are pretty irregular and I want to try for a July baby, so depending on when AF is here will determine if it's Sept or Oct. We got pregnant with Frankie on our first try and I'm hoping the second happens just as easily.
My baby fever is out of control lol. It started when Frankie was only a month old, I must be crazy. I am dying to be pregnant again and to have a sibling for Frank. Up until this month we've been just pulling out, not very safe, so I've tested close to my period the last three months, just in case. Now we are using condoms. There are few reasons we are waiting till close to Frankie first Bday. First, I have him via c section and really want to give my body enough time to recovery. I don't know if I'll be able but I'd like to maybe try a vbac and there needs be some time between babies. I really, really want a summer baby, I have a winter Nov baby so now I want warm summer babe. I want to lose some more weight. Also, our wedding is in May and I want to enjoy that and not be pregnant. And I want to enjoy the first year of Frankie's life focusing on him and his milestones and I don't want to take from him. I keep reminding myself of all this and why I'm waiting. But it's so hard sometimes, I have pregnant facebook friends and their pics and updates make me miss being pregnant sooo bad. But I will wait, it's only 6 months, it will fly by.
Maybe...about to get a little TMI. While DTD the other night, we didn't use a condom, we did the withdrawal method. DH claims he did nothing in me and pulled out in time. Well, I went to the Bathroom after and "plop", stuff came out, I don't know if it was from me or if it was semen. I don't know when I ovulate, my periods are still pretty wacky since having Frankie, so I guess I'll wait and see what happens.
I think I got some of my baby fever under control, for now, I feel like after our wedding it will be bad again. I really want to add to our family and I think if it wasn't for having a c section, I'd want to try in June. But I maybe I'll be able to have a vbac, it may not be possible but I'd like to maybe try. I know they won't let me if the next baby is also big.
I'm so happy it's Friday! My parents are coming down tomorrow and Sunday we may check out the farmers market! I want to get some more fruits and veggies for Frankie. I'm making all his baby food, so far I've made carrots, rice cereal, apples, peas and sweet potatoes.
Oh, yeah, wanted to add. Not saying I'm having pregnancy symptoms, because it's too early and I'm sure the one incident isn't going to lead to pregnancy. But I have been having weird, realistic dreams, one's where I wake up and have to really think if it actually happened. All these dreams are about pregnancy, mostly getting a positive test..it's so weird. lol. I wonder if maybe someone around me is expecting again..I know some are trying.
So, DH and decided that we would use condoms and make sure we are safe. As bad as my baby fever is, having another baby right now scares me. Would you know it, the other night during DTD, the condom came off. Awesome. Now, I'm worried. 5 months 3 weeks till TTC. I am really looking forward to Oct, I'm excited to TTC. Honestly, if I ended up pregnancy by accident, I will be disappointed that I missed out on the TTC process.
So, I sent an email for a Cherri22 free reading. According to her, my target month is June, so I'll either find out, conceive or be due in June and she see's a girl. Honestly, if she's right about the month, I'll be happy. If she's right on gender, there may be some gender disappointment, but maybe not. She may be right with her prediction, since we made a little decision about TTC. So, we are still TTC starting in Oct as of right now. But we are going on a two day honeymoon at the end of May and during that time we will not prevent, no pulling out or anything. If we get pregnant, so be it. If I do end up pregnant, I'll conceive at the beginning of June and probably find out at the end of June. Now, I have no clue what my cycles are doing or if I'll even be ovulating during that time. You never know and it would be pretty cool to have a honeymoon baby. We will see! Hey, thats in like a month and a half!
My wedding is at the end of this month, followed by a 2 days, fun, protection free honeymoon! If my cycles keep doing what they are doing, then I'll be ovulating then. I'm excited to see if we will be lucky and end up pregnant. If not, 4 months isn't very long. My baby fever has really calmed down, probably because of all the wedding stress. Also my dress JUST fits, so if I would have ended up pennant before the wedding, I would have been screwed lol. Thats all for now.
