Haven’t started yet. My daughter is almost a year and we had originally said we would start trying then but I may be switching jobs soon so we are waiting until that’s settlrd to ensure I have fmla. Anyways, the first time we weren’t really trying and it happened one night we weren careful. I’m incredibly nervous this time about having trouble conceiving for some reason. i know it will be kind of shocking to my husband and i if it doesn’t happen right away again. I also feel a little bad thinking about it, I feel like I’m “cheating” on Dear Daughter1! I don’t know how I’ll ever love someone as much as I love her.

We are on cycle 4 of TTC #2. My daughter is almost 17 months. I started pretty relaxed, but at this point I’m anxiously awaiting my BFP and have baby fever worse than I did while we TTC our daughter (it only took one cycle, so I didn’t have too much time to get anxious). I’m just ready for #2! Best of luck to you, mamas.

With our first, it only took 1 round so after 2 rounds (I know, only 2!), I was getting frustrated. Finally relaxed and got the BFP on round 4

I’m feeling more relaxed with #2 as far as feeling confident that it’ll happen.  I’m temping, but not every day, definitely not analyzing it as much as I did the first time.  This is cycle 3 trying for #2, but we didn’t have good timing the last 2 months due to illness, etc. 

On the flip side, I do put a little more thought into the planning of how close in age we’d like our kids.  Even things like thinking about when we’d have to have #2 to use the baby clothes from #1, which I realize isn’t a huge deal, but I think about it. DS is currently 14 mo

Good luck!

We’re on our first cycle of TTC #2 (currently in the TWW – 4 DPO). I definitely have felt more relaxed this time around. I was so anxious for #1, symptom spotting like crazy all the time and researching every possible early symptom. It only took us two cycles so that’s probably part of the reason I’m more relaxed. I’m still charting, using OPKS and my fertility monitor, but the “rules” are more relaxed (no saliva, keeping my hips up, that sort of thing. I’m pretty optimistic since we got pregnant so quickly last time, but maybe too optimistic! I have a feeling I’ll still be quite disappointed if I get a BFN.

I feel super nervous.  Not because it’s number 2 but because I have not had good luck so far.  I stated TTC when my son was a yr old and got pregnant on our second try but miscarried.  I tried again in July and miscarried again.  I’m now going to TTC at the end of this month with the help of a RE.  My son is now 2.  I was hoping to have a 2 yr separation but I guess 3 will be ok.  It will most likely be easier and by then my son will be potty trained.   I really want to give my DS a sibling.  He loves babies!  He wants to hug everyone he meets.  Wishing you all lots of luck with #2.
