Hi! My DH and I have a 2 year old and are beginning the process of TTC for #2! I am high risk due to a blood disorder and have been on some "tricky" meds, but have had preconception visits with my OB/GYN and MFM and have been given the go ahead! I have been taking prenatals for a while and after a family wedding (BIG Party!) this past weekend, I think we are finally ready to officially start soon! I am a teacher at Head Start and I get laid off in the summer and lose insurance and I am on the planning team for an overnight church retreat in March 2011, so we are kind of trying to "time" the pregnancy so we still have my insurance when we deliver (since mine is better than DH and he is a Union Carpenter and loses his insurance if he is on a lay-off ), but can still attend the retreat. I know that trying to time a pregnancy is stressful...so I am going to count on this board to keep me relaxed, not worry about it so much, and just enjoy "trying"! I was Fertile Myrtle with my first child, getting pregnant on our honeymoon. I hope it will be as easy this time! I loved these boards during my first pregancy and am looking forward to using them again!View Thread
