TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

TTC second baby

We had to go through infertility to get my son. I've heard it's easier to get pregnant with the second baby? We'd like to avoid going to infertility if possible... I responded well to the meds I was on and we conceived twins (though lost one early on). As much as I would love any baby I have, I'm not sure I want to risk twins again...

Are you tracking your cycle? Do you think you're ovulating?

I am in the same boat.. Conceived my daughter on meds and we are TTC #2 and I REALLY don't want the meds again.. Even though it was very successful and fine.. I just would love to conceive on our own :( best wishes to you!! Hope they are right when they say second one is easier to conceive!

I've been breastfeeding my son since birth, he's nearly 14 months now. I went 11 months without a period at all. Since it returned, it's been within a few days of 30 day cycle. I haven't been taking temps, I always forget in the morning, so I'm not 100% sure if I'm ovulating, but I don't know why I wouldn't be.

TTC the first time, I had a slight hormone imbalance which was corrected with a med. I also took a low dose of clomid, has an HSG done, and triggered my ovulation for precise timing with an HCG shot.

What meds did you take for hormonal balance?

I don't really remember, I think it was dexamethazone? I don't remember what hormone it was correcting either

Similar boat here. Conceived my daughter with Meds, but second time ttc not so lucky.  We have tried even more Meds than before and longer but with no luck =(

The biggest hesitation for me is the possiblitlity of another m/c. I have had three already and not sure I can handle another.

We are now trying to decide if we will continue our efforts.

Best of luck to everyone on their journeys.
