Is it too early to start this thread? It’s only like three months until 2018… I figure there are probably a few people out there just waiting anxiously, right? I know the 2017 thread got started in [name_u]December[/name_u] of 2016, because I started posting there and then I got pregnant like a week later (literally on the first cycle we were TTW), so then I left… I’ve also been posting in the Pre-TTC thread, but some of the people there are waiting a lot longer and I don’t want to bum them out.
I’m like 99% sure we’re going to TTC #2 starting in [name_u]March[/name_u], but it might get moved up. We’re kind of just TTW right now, because my cycle still hasn’t come back since my daughter was born last [name_f]September[/name_f]. Yay breastfeeding. We probably should be more careful about using protection, because I know it is possible to get pregnant the very first time you ovulate, but right now I feel like that is never going to happen anyway, because we are no where near being done breastfeeding yet :(. Getting pregnant on the first cycle doesn’t seem very likely, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if we got pregnant earlier than we were planning. The only real bummer would be that I’m still working on losing my stupid baby weight from the first time around, but I am working on it! So anyway, we’re just kind of going with it until my cycle comes back, and then we’ll figure our plan out haha.
I’ve been flipping between being kind of baby hungry and wanting to try for #2 just because we don’t want them super spread out. The closest I would want them would be two years, and right now I’m thinking more 2.5-3. If we start TTC in [name_u]March[/name_u] and get pregnant right away (I got pregnant the very first cycle we were kind of thinking about it last time!) then it’d be a little less than 2.5. But, then I started thinking about trying in [name_u]January[/name_u], because what if I had a boy this time and he was born in [name_f]October[/name_f] and I named him [name_m]Casper[/name_m]?!?!? how cute would that be for a halloween baby!?!? Haha, I’m crazy, it’s fine. We’re definitely not officially trying until [name_u]January[/name_u], because we’re going on a big trip in [name_u]December[/name_u] that I would like to not be pregnant for. But other than that, nothing is really set in stone.
So anyway. Hopefully I’m not the only one who is excited for 2018 even though it’s still three months away!
