Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself here. My name is Elise, i'm 21 and my DH Remy is 27. We were married on 19th August 2006. We have 2 children currently. Eva is 2 and a half, and Jayden is nearly 4 months old. DH and I had both agreed right from the time we had DD that we wanted a big family.
I've been watching alot of shows on Discovery Home & Health lately about very large families and every time it gets me so teary. I think it's beautiful. Hard work, but beautiful. (Of course you only see what they show you!!)
We would really love to have over 5 children, all quite close in age. 5 is alot over here, very unheard of. My family thinks i'm nuts!! We were going to officially TTC#3 in May when Jayden is 6 months old. But, (call me crazy ) I hope it will happen sooner. Here's a little history if you want:

I gave birth on the 21st October. I bled for 3 weeks and then maybe very scant brown spotting for another week. Over the next few weeks, Jayden slept through the night several times - up to 8 hours. Then at 8 weeks pp I had a period. I thought that maybe Jayden sleeping through triggered my first pp AF?? Well anyways, after missing AF several weeks later I decided instead of taking a pg test I would take my temp to see if it was high. It wasn't but I ended up just making a chart on FF to see if and when I would ovulate. Here is my chart if you would like a looksee:

I'm still not sure if I ovulated because i've had a cold over the last week or so, that could be why my temp is a bit higher...
Anyway! DH and I are NTNP at the moment, but maybe if I get AF soon, the next cycle we will probably just TTC. I know it is frowned upon to TTC so soon after giving birth, but we would really love our children to be really close in age and be best mates

Sorry for rambling on thanks for reading

Thankyou I'd be happy if I get AF because that would mean I ovulated?? But of course i'd be much happier with a BFP! I took a test with very diluted urine last night and BFN. I also had a temp drop this morning so... maybe AF is on her way?
