Hi there, I'm Jessica, 32 yrs old, and this is my first month TTC for #8. I have 6 living children and one angel. Just got my first PPAF on March 11th, so am using my ticker just to count what cycle day I'm currently on, have no clue yet when I will ovulate or how long my cycles will be. I am still breastfeeding my youngest on demand (he will be 11 mos tomorrow). I conceived him while breastfeeding as well (my daughter was 10 mos and exclusively nursing).

I started using OPK's today and hope to get as lucky as I did last time. My son was conceived during my first month of using opk's.

None of mine or dh's family knows that we are TTC. And when we do conceive we will wait quite awhile before telling them. None of them will be supportive at all, infact they will be the opposite and be outright cruel about it.

This next child will be our last, even though that makes me sad. But my last 3 babies came early (one at 37 weeks, 2 at 35 weeks) and my youngest had a rough start in the NICU. I had PPROM with all 3 of them (water broke early, no labor, had to be induced). My body had also had a hard time with the last 2 pregnancies and I know the next one will be very rough as well, so for my body's sake - I think 1 more is all we should take on.

I never imagined I'd have a large family. In fact, when I was younger my dream was always to have 2 kids, no more. But as you can see..........they kept coming lol. I kept waiting for that "my family is complete" feeling but honestly, I don't think I will ever have that feeling due to the fact that we lost our 4th child at 20 weeks. So it's either dh goes in for a vasectomy during the next pregnancy............or I eventually end up with my own Discovery Health show lol.

Large families are indeed a blessing and the mom that can handle them is even more blessed!

Welcome to the forum and I hope you get your BFP very soon!

BTW I wanna be the first to know if you ever end up on Discovery Health!

As for your family not being supportive, they have no idea what they are missing!
