We've taken the plunge!

So, after deciding we'd start trying for our second child after we hit the 15 months apart mark and postponing it over and over again, we've finally actually started trying! lol We are now at the 18 months apart stage.

I'm not telling my mother yet since she is of the "too early" opinion. She will respond well when I do get pregnant, I just would rather not have to go through all the stuff now. My pregnancy and outcome wasn't half as bad as many of yours, but I still have this uneasiness...kinda scared, but excited to start trying again anyway. I would rather get my pregnancy after the PIH over with and be able to plan life a little better. We originally planned on 3-5, so we'll see what happens this time through.

Just wanted to share my news with others who have an understanding of what it means to me. I told my sister-in-law and she didn't get it, if you know what I mean. ANYWAY! If I get any good news, I'll let you all know!

Catherine,

Soooooo excited for you! [:)] I can imagine the uneasiness though, we don't get the luxury of that "blissfully unaware" type of pregnancy that many are fortunate to have. But, in my opinion, we know more than anyone just how precious and miraculous a healthy baby really is.

Wishing you guys the best of luck in conceiving quickly! And of course, lots of prayers for a looooong and uneventful pregnancy!

So, with all this new baby talk, I'm TOTALLY excited...and wishful [:D]. I had to add my own update, though it isn't the one I WANT to add! lol

It is our first cycle and I'm on day 36 with no signs of anything yet! I did test at day 28 and got a neg. The problem is that I have NO IDEA how long my cycles are! Since having dd they've been all out-of-whack. If I make it to day 45 without af I'm going to test then....I think it is the 12th. I hate waiting and not knowing! ARGH [:I] Showing my impatience here...lol
