    I'm using the Ovia app to track my cycle. I get ovulation pain every month, so no mistaking that.

    @TaylorMade i guess im mostly concerned about DD. She is only 5 months at the moment and i want to spend some more time just her and I at the moment. DP isnt ready either.

    I havent been doing anything to prepare except trying to lose weight. Also trying to track my cycle but its a bit all over the place still

    I feel like a bit of a nut but being prepared helps me feel like I'm organised & ready to start when the time comes. Does anyone have suggestions for anything I might not have thought of?
    I'm not doing anything special. OPKs and I don't have a good history...just like me and HPTs lol. I have never gotten a positive HPT.

    I get that Completelysavvy... It's taken me three years to be ready (and I'm still freaking out). I worry constantly about what another child will change when everything works as it is.

    A friend said to me "do you think your family is complete". When I said no she told me stop overthinking it and just do it already so we are she is right, there is never a perfect gap/time, you just have to have faith in yourself that you will find ways to spread the love I guess

    Wow this thread moves fast when you don't check in throughout the day sorry I'm on my phone so can't quote altogether or remember everyone's names.
    @Beautyofsoul and Tortoise- you guys are both doing amazing with the weight loss. Do you eat snacks Tortoise or solely shake based? I lost all my weight from doing isagenix which is a shake based nutritional cleanse program. I was finding I would always skip meals but the program made me remember to always have something.
    Love how you guys are going to be sharing eggs! Have you got plans on what gap you want to plan between kiddies or just seeing how everything goes?
    I had my surgery a month, they don't recommend trying until 3 months. Have my checkup tomorrow. My only problem is DH is going to the states sometime next year for 6months so we need to juggle it around that. Won't know when he's going until the next 2-3 months argh.

    @ConpletelySavvy I had the exact same problem with my last 2 DD's. My BP was so high and the meds weren't working so they were both delivered early at 36 weeks. I did put that down to my weight so I'm hoping 5th time around and a lot of weight down that I won't have that problem. FX!! I was also exactly like you when I had DD1. As soon as she was born I was so clucky and could have another straight away. We didn't prevent it either but it took a little longer and 3 m/c to have DD2. I thought that would happen again with our 3rd but nope I was pregnant straight away so only have a 10month and 3 week gap between 2&3. Loved the close gap by far!!
    @Lil Smurfy I'm still trying to figure out exactly how Ovia works. I've been trying to keep track of everything so when we can actually try I know where we are at. I'm day 16 and still no O or sign of it. Got some internet cheapie Ovulation tests too and no sign of it. Ah well I've still got a few months to get on track.


    Can't wait to start buying everything again DH swears I only want another bub so I can buy another pram haha. I may have a slight pram addiction!

    thanks chunkydunks. I found a website called pregnancyshop.com.au and got 25 for $12.50 (plus 3 bucks for postage). 50c is much better than $8!! hopefully I don't end up using too many of them if you get my drift

    baby dust to all the ttc-ers here

    I think that's a fair enough reason, I only got AF back when DD was 5 months old, and I wanted lots of time with her before adding another baby. She's a fairly independent toddler so it makes it easier to want more!

    Oh boooo. Last month was my first try at OPKs & I tested for nearly a week before getting a positive, I was convinced they were faulty haha! Hopefully this is a lucky thread & you'll get a BFP finally

    If i fall easily again ill have just under a 2 year gap. I think thats a decent gap and im hoping DD will be a teeny bit more "independent" for lack of a better word.
    @BabyG4 i was planning bub #2 before DD came 😓 i was told i was nuts lol
    Hoping everything goes well with your BP & bub #5 for you. Its a scary thing
