Hey All! I figured I would post this here too. Maybe some of you are working on a 3rd child and can help me with how you dealt with the 2nd. Looking for a little advice or to vent not sure what lol! I really want to start trying for a second baby in the fall and I along with my DH have some fears! The biggest is can we afford another child??? How do you mommies do it with a second child to feed, cloth and put in daycare? The other biggie is my DS is extremely attached to me. He doesn't like when I pay attention to other children or hold another baby. Plus I do everything with him and for him and I know he loves me very much cause he constantly gives me hugs my fear is how do I divide me attention and love so that DS won't feel neglected and resent a new baby? Also my son is 15 months right now we wouldn't start trying for a couple more months. Is it easier or harder when they are close in age?View Thread
For every women it is different. Some women after very light spotting. Which throws women off to thinking it is their period. Other women have some cramping others have the classic period/pregnancy symptoms. if you are on day 18 it is a little early to be having any implantation symptoms.View Thread
I can't give you any suggestions about that Clear Blue Easy although my friend used it for a couple months and it helped her conceive well understand her cycles better I should say. As far any other advice. I used the WebMD to conceive our child and it did help again me understand my cycles and when i was ovulating so you are on the right track there. I know you are trying when it sayd you are most fertile. But I know we tried in the beginning of the feritle week and then like the day before I was most fertile. Supposely sperm can live up to 72 hrs! Also sometimes different positions do help. Don't mean to get TMI on you but doggy style does help with some women and helped with me as well. Other than that. Don't get discourage....believe it or not it is actually and truly a miracle when I women gets pregnant. I mean the stars have to alined almost LOL! It isn't as easy as everyone has that preception. The only other advice is try try to relax and enjoy your intimate time with your hubby....stressing over this can sometimes screw with your cycles which in turn can screw with your ovulating. I know it is hard to do tho! Good Luck and I hope you get a positive test on November 22nd!!!View Thread
The best advice I can say especially in the beginning of trying is try and relax and do not put much stress into it. Stressing over getting pregnant can make your body stressed which can screw up your cycles. Also WebMD as a great ovulation calendar that I used it was very helpful obviously as I am due next month lol! Congrats and have fun trying I hope it happens quick for you!View Thread
