What comes after baby?

Postby maddy » Sun Feb 26, 2012 2:26 am

Ok maybe I have just been at this wayyyyyy to long, but what comes after baby. I mean I have focused so long and so much on ttc that my life is nothing but that. What in the world do I do when (if) I finally do get pregnant and have a baby. I guess start ttc again. I can tell you this, I will never worry about birth control again. :roll:

I just have to put this out there. I have a very sure strong feeling that my time is coming soon. I have had alot of changes in my life and I cant help but think that it is everything kinda falling into place. The time is right for baby. :mrgreen:

I hope your time is coming soon! :D I get that feeling every once in awhile too!

I definitely won't be using BC at all either (never did before), but if I ever do get pregnant I think we might use the pull out method for at least the first 4-5 months after "just in case". I've seen so many women go from infertile for the first baby then have happily welcomed "oops" babies and I kind of want to enjoy our first one for awhile!

I definitely think it'll be weird going from infertile to pregnant, I think I'll give myself dirty looks! I can't even imagine going to doctor's appointments, I'll likely still somewhat despise the other women there... I'm not sure infertility will ever NOT affect me even if I do have children.
