Aiming for 2 Under 2

Postby kyrenora » Mon Jun 06, 2016 8:30 pm

Looking for others in similar circumstances. My DD is 11 months old now, and DH and I have decided that we want our next LO to arrive before she turns 2. We just started actively TTC this month after a few months of NTNP. I'll be 28 in a couple weeks. DH will be 29 next month. I'm temping, monitoring CM, and doing OPKs.

Any other mamas with a young one trying for another?

Hi! I'm in a similar circumstance. My DD was born 6 months ago and we are starting to try for a second. Dh and I would like to get pregnant before DD turns 1 but there's no rush. Although secretly I would love to get pregnant right away :) I'm only monitoring cm but might start trying opk this time around. What cd are you this cycle? I'm on cd5 - af should be over in 2 days.

Haha I'd like to get pregnant right away, too! If I get a + this month, then the LO would be born in March, so I'd be recovered by the time I needed to start doing my gardening and yard work, so that would be really nice timing.

I'm on CD 8 now.

Where are you from?

Yeah March would be a good month. My DD was born right before Christmas last year and everything was just so hectic it would be nice to have this next one when there isn't so much going on. And I agree recovering while the weather is getting nice would be convenient. I like to get out and work in our garden too!
Great so we aren't too far off :)
I'm from southern Ohio. What about you?

I'm on the edge of central and western Mass.

We have almost 2 acres of land, and when we moved in, DH and I agreed that I would take over the outside work, and he would handle any construction on the house. He's not a big fan of the outdoors - he much prefers to hide inside and play video games. I usually don't mind it, but DD was born in July last year, so we ended up hiring a local kid to help out with the mowing and so forth. Early this year he started slacking off, so I took over again, but I still haven't lost the baby weight, and because of that, it's much harder than I remember haha.

How long have you been TTC? We started to actively TTC this cycle after about 3 months of NTNP.

Oh nice, we have about 6 acres but most of that is wooded so don't have to worry too much about mowing and such but still like to make things look nice. My husband does the construction too but that's because that's his career :p Ha I hear ya! I tried "working out" a couple days ago...it didn't go so well. Having a baby definitely takes a toll on your body.
Basically we've been NTNP for the past couple cycles but my cycles have been fluctuating. So now I'm trying to actually track it closely to see when I O. So this will be our first month actively ttc too :)

Oh awesome, so we are definitely in the same boat.

What kind of workouts do you do? I'm mainly into yoga, or anything I can do from home without equipment. I'm not much of a runner, though. I mowed about half of the front yard this morning, and now I'm taking a longer break than I should be, just sitting in front of the AC.

Same here, except I've only tried yoga a couple times. I like to do the kinetic exercises like dips, push ups, sit ups stuff like that it's just hard to get the motivation. I use to run all the time and I think I just got burnt out cause I hate running now haha
Hey there's nothing wrong with that you take as long of a break as you need haha
Are you using fertility friend or anything to track your cycles?

Yup, I'm using FF. You can see my chart at http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/52c024.

I ended up taking too long of a break. I fell asleep with the baby and when I woke up, my husband had finished the front yard haha whoops!

How about you? What are you tracking with?

I'm finally getting back into the swing of workouts again after too long. DD used to love to just hang out on my yoga mat while I practiced, but she suddenly became much more mobile very quickly, and her sleeping routine flipped. She had been staying up late and then sleeping late, but now she's up early in the mornings. DH and I have just recently gotten into a good routine where he can either get her to sleep even earlier or he can corral her for an hour while I get my daily exercise in after he gets home from work.

Hey! Sorry I went off the radar for a little while. I'm using ff too but don't know how to use it well enough to know how to share my chart like that.

That's cool you're getting back into exercising. It's hard for me to find time I work a full time job outside of the home so any free time I have I like to spend it with my DH and DD. I actually planted a late garden of corn and beans over the weekend and can barely walk today I'm so sore haha

So when are you expected to O? Ff is telling me I'll O the 23rd which seems late but my cycles have been everywhere so who knows. I really should start temping.

I think I O'd yesterday, but haven't seen the sustained temp shift yet, so I can't be sure. Haven't gotten a clear +OPK yet either.

Did you confirm O yet?

I'm only cd12 and experiencing a lot of watery/ewcm. It's weird though because according to ff I'm not supposed to ovulate until cd20. This is why I really need to start temping. Guess I'll get to bd'ing just in case!

Not quite confirmed yet. I had 2 days where my temp went up a little bit, but then it was a little lower today. Usually after I O I get a big rise that keeps climbing. I'm also still having EWCM, so I'm not quite sure what's going on.
