    Default Ttc #2

    Hmm, well when we conceived DS, I went off the pill because I was going to wait 3 months to get a regular cycle again. But 2 weeks after stopping the pill dh officially said he wanted to make a baby so that plan went out the window & we conceived first try. So, say if my cycle was regular after stopping the pill & it was 2 weeks in, I reckon we would have tried right when I was ovulating so that's one tip I'm fairly sure might help. I've also read for a boy that the man must be in pretty deep so the sperm is released as close as possible to the egg as male sperm have a shorter lifespan than female.... I'll be doing the opposite of all the above in our attempt for a girl :-)

    Default Ttc #2

    Hi there ladies, I hope you don't mind if I join this thread!
    DH and I already have DD who is 13 months and we're in our 4th month of TTC #2. Finding it a lot tougher this time as to quote one of the other ladies before we just looked at each other and got pregnant with DD!
    I think I've been obsessing about getting pregnant too much so this month am trying to be more relaxed about it all! (Easier said than done!)

    Hi all..coming to join you if thats ok. We have a ds who's just over 2.5yrs and are ttc number 2. As we did the first time we just said if it happens it happens..it did but unfortunatly had a m/c last july and have been trying ever since. My cycles are weird, I dont take temperatures or anything so I guess we could be trying harder. I'm looking forward to hearing about how everyone else is ttc bub 2 & also hope we wil start seeing a few bfp pop up in here

    Hi guys, just an update - it is harder for us with number 2 - just went to the doctor for blood results because I had a feeling something wasn't quite right and I have low AMH...at 31 I really didn't expect this considering I got pregnant so easily with number 1....I have been referred to a fertility dr but can't get in until the 4 April...this sucks!

    It is a hormone that measures your egg reserve....it should be between 14 - 30. But mine come up a 5 which means my egg reserve is very low for my age (31) don't know much more - but the doctor said I should see a fertility specialist because it is will be very hard to conceive.

    Hi ladies. My DS is just over a year old and we're in our first month of TTC #2. I had planned to gender sway, was waiting of my cycle to regulate a bit more (so that we could time it a bit) and was about to start on the cranberry juice, but I was slack with it and we both decided we just wanted another bub (or a smallish age gap) more than we wanted the extra possible chance for a girl.
    We stopped DtD when I thought was getting close to O, but might have timed it so poorly that we missed out entirely, oops!
    I'm determined not to tempt or chart or anything unless nothing happens for a few months... just trying to enjoy it
    I hadn't actually heard that it can be harder/take longer to conceive the second time :/

    May85 - not that we were swaying for a boy, but we DtD on O (and either side!) and got our son, so I support that method... we didn't abstain leading up to it, though.

    redlipsandpearls - I'm taking Blackmores as well (still had some leftover from last pregnancy), they were the ones that my GP recommended.
