    First child I got pregnant second month trying, miscarried got pregnant immediately after, ectopic then months later when we started trying again we conceived my son. Overall it was 8 months even though we conceived quickly. 2nd baby I am currently 13w and have been lucky everything has been going smoothly.

    I have always found astrology to be interesting although I dont but to much stock in it.  I am an aries, and fit the typical description to the letter. Fiery has been used to describe me. I played womans rugby in college which takes a certain personality, as it is a very physical and aggressive sport. I found it very interesting that out of the 7 girls in my year 6 of us were aries. Also, all of my best friends, and partners throughout my life have always been either Gemini, or cancer, and my husband’s best friend, since he was four who he still hangs out with weekly and I have the same birthday.

    I literally got pregnant the first time we had an accident. We both laid in bed afterward and he said “I just got you pregnant.” Three weeks later I took a test and it was positive. Our daughter was born 1 month before our first wedding anniversary. She’s 12 today actually! 

    I agree with a lot of PPs that astrology is BS, and you should definitely not plan TTC around it in any way, shape or form.

    Honestly you get what you get (and you’ll love them for it!) and it has nothing to do with their birthday.  I’m raising a 17 month old virgo and she is fiery as they get!  She definitely keeps my hands full but I wouldn’t have it any other way!  I admire her braveness, outgoingness, energy and big personality- she has many traits that I would love for her to have an adult, even if they are a bit challenging right now as a toddler.  We really wanted a late spring/ summer baby as I’m on a teacher’s schedule.  It just wasn’t happening, and then the first outside that range was the month we got pregnant.

    I’m 31 and on my ninth cycle of TTC. I’m healthy, super regular periods and ovulate every month (charting/temping). I know I still have 3 months to go before I’m classified as “infertile” but I wonder if I may never be able to conceive naturally. Fertility is not a guarantee, even for those who have conceived before, so I never understand trying to “time things perfectly” because I just want to be a mother and have a normal healthy pregnancy regardless of timeframe. That being said, I do have some paranoia about flu season, although it’s pretty much always an issue because you can have birth defects from flu in early pregnancy, or you could be at risk for life threatening complications in late pregnancy. One thing TTC will show you is that you have much less control over your life than you think you do. I wish you good luck though!
