Ive been a "lurker" for a while and finally decided to join. Dh and i have been not trying, not preventing for 3 years now and we recently decided to start activly TTC.
A little background on me,
I have an almost 4 year old DD, she was deffinantly a surprise baby. I had an overy removed when i was younger and then years, in high school, after had my appendix out, i was told that it would be next to impossible for me to get pregnant without help because i only had one overy and i had stitches from that surgery imbedded in my uterus (my body doesnt disolve the disolvable stitches). So DH (then DB) and i decided we didnt particularly need any BC. About a year later i ended up pregnant at 17. I had my beautiful girl ("V") at 18 just before my high school graduation.
We decided when she was around 6 months we really wanted another (we both come from sort of bigger families) so we started trying. About 5 months after we started TTC "V" got very sick. Now almost 3 years later she is considered "medically fragile/complex" (i prefer medically challenged personally lol). She does not have an over all diagnosis, but her doctors suspect it is either genetic or/and metabolic/mitochondrial in nature. With either of these possiblities there is a very big chance it would happen to another child we would have. Out of fear we decided to stop activly trying until we figured things out with her. We continued to not prevent however because we felt "if it was ment to be it would find a way"
We still don't know much more about whats going on over all, but we have decided that even if another child has the same troubles as "V" we are a lot stronger (and smarter) and i/we can handle the potential problems.
So here we are, TTC baby #2. I honestly really feel pregnant this cycle but im pretty sure its just mind over matter at this point because its the "first TTC cycle" and im quite impatiant lol.
