    well i just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Jessica and i am officially on my last pack of BC pills. We have decided to try for #2 at the end of june. i am so excited but kinda feels crazy too sense we just had our DS back in october. he is just so good and growing up so fast that i guess we both got the baby itch. but im glad we are going to have them close. then they will be close when they get older too.

    Hi Jessica!

    Welcome!!!! Ok, if I seem a little overly enthuuastic its not that I am a spaz, its just nice that someone else is in the same boat and TTC!!!!! Its been lonely on here, but I was hopeful that someone would find it eventually!!!!!

    Love the picture btw, he is a cutie! and I agree, the closer in age, the closer the bond, we are going to try and do them as close together as possible.

    Can I ask, how old are you? and can I ask, how long did it take you to get KU with your first child?

    Have you thought about, or started taking the prenatals yet?

    Man, I am pumped, none of my friends have kids and don't really seem that enthused when I bring it up.

    So glad you are here.....Sweet! LOL

    lol its cool. its nice to know people are still using these boreds sense they changed them. ive used them sense TTC with #1. I use cafe mom too but its not near the same vibes as there are on the webmd boards, even if they are slow. but anyway im 24. I was on the birth control pill ortho tri cyclen for 7 years and ended up getting pregnant within the same month i got off of them. so it only took me a month. no i havent taken prenatals and i didnt last time i TTCed. pretty much we start trying but we dont try. i dont do any of the tracking of anything sense i think im going to jenks myself if i do. ya it sucks when you dont really have to many to talk to. but thats what boards like these are for. plus to me its easier to say whats on your mind here then to your local friends. Well Good Luck with TTCing... oh and have fun with it, thats the best part .

    LOL, yeah its all good, we are going to try it au natural for a year, I don't intend to get a fertility moniter or temping or anything, after a year and no luck, we would prob look into it, we are just trying not to stress out about it.

    I am the 3rd oldest of 9 and my sisters never had any probs, so we shall see!

    Good luck to you too!!!!!

    I have been known to be a fertile Myrtle too...The first time I got preggo I was only 14 (not trying at all but not on any bc) that baby ended in a loss. The second time I was 15 again not trying and I was on bc but I got off of it for just one month cuz I didn't have the money for it at the time. I had him when I was 16 and I kept him. Then I got preggo again when I was 18, I was off of the depo for 7 months with no sign of my period and then the month it comes back bam I'm preggo.

    So I gave birth to my daughter at 19. Than about a year and a half later I meet DH and we planned our two boys together, our first we stopped the pill in april and by June I was knocked up lol. Then we we trying for a girl again since he was a boy and we stopped the pill in April about a month after our son was born ( yeah I know but we wanted them close in age) we didn't get preggo until August that time and I lost the baby 10 days after we found out. We wanted to try again and asked the Dr when we could and she said as soon as I am ready. So that same day we tried and I got preggo even before I got my period after the miscarriage. Again another little boy he will be 3 on June 13th.

    So this time we won't be trying until Feb. but I hope it doesn't take too long. I am going to be 27 then and he will be almost 43. If it doesn't happen we are not going to do anything about it, it was just not meant to be. And of course if it does happen we are definitely done regardless if it is a boy or a girl (hoping girl though )
