Okay...I want to get pregnant again already. What the heck.

The main thing stopping me from telling Bill is that I had a C-section. I am scared to get pregnant too soon again because I don't want to up my risks of uterine rupture. But I don't really know alot about that?

I am heavy and have lost almost 30 pounds since having her. During her entire pregnancy I only gained 17 pounds and I had lost it by one month after. I am still working on losing, but we are just practicing the so-called pull-n-pray (but we're not really praying to NOT get pregnant...so I guess we're just pulling).

We start our counseling for DH's problem with alocohol and porn/sex addiction this weekend but he seems to be doing well lately and we have been going at it on almost a daily basis. So I'm secretly hoping for a surprise pregnancy but I am also enjoying being with him, not just thinking about getting pregnant this time.

I feel like I just want to get pregnant again and then concentrate on losing a bigger chunk of weight. Then if it hasn't happened yet and we feel ready try for number 3. Then after that I want to get a breast reduction because I have been having back priblems and my boobs are really big but I have read you should be at a weight you are content with because if you lose a substantial amount after it you can wind up losing ALL breast tissue.

Ugh. Is this a good idea or should I wait???

Thats a really personal decision....if you're not sure, then what you are doing is probably a good method lol...because if a surprise happens you obviously wouldn't be devastated I personally love surprises!

I just wanted to say that I'm glad you're back! And it is so good to hear things are looking up for you and Bill. I think of you often.

Yay! Bonnie's back!

I don't know, there were 5 months between my pregnancies with Cora and Erin and it was really hard on me physically. I can't imagine only 3 months with having had a csection.

But like Kathryn said, it's your personal decision. Wanting a baby but not telling my husband was how I got Patrick =Ž He decided one night not to use a condom and I let him.

Anyway, good luck either way!

Welcome Back! I'm glad you guys are doing well. Sorry, I don't have an answer to your question, like other girls said, it's probably a personal decision.

I waited after having a c-section and for me it was a good idea.
I found it took a bit to recover after my surgery, but each person is different.

Thank you so much for the awesome siggie Claire
Our joys will be greater
Our love will be deeper
Our lives will be fuller
Because we shared your moment
