Good luck on both of you getting your degrees!


Quoting Reankanesmom:

We have two kids a girl who is 8 and a boy who is 6. I wanted four but had comlications in my pregnacies and delivers and then afterwards wound up having a hystrectomy a year after my son was born. So I will take what I have. We have looked into adoption but with both of us finishing our degrees and how stretched we feel now it would not be a good idea at this point.

I used to want 3. Then I had dd and thought I was done with her. Then she started to get older and I got baby fever and decided I wanted 1 more. I now have a 2 week old ds as well and am definitely done now. I ain't getting any younger, my personal "cut off age" is 30 and I'm 28. :)

Thank you.  The thought of being pregnant again is super scary.  The first miscarriage a complete shock..never thought it would happen to me.  The second was an even bigger shock if that's possible.  Statistically it shouldn't have happened.  Both times we found out at the dr. office on an ultrasound.  I had to have a d&c with both.  My husband is afraid that if it were to happen again that I would compeletly break.  Which is understandable.  The second loss was so soon after the first I was afraid I wouldn't recover from it.  I am in a good place now, I do still have my moments, but they are few and far between.  I think by the summer I will bring up ttc again.  I just want him to see that I am ok.  We survived...LOL  I want nothing more than to have another baby, but not if he isn't on board.  We are not currently preventing, but not trying. 

Anyway, that reply got longer than I had expected....thanks again.  And I am sorry for your losses as well.  Oh one more question, where in the scheme of your kids were your mc's?  Meaning did you have more afterwards or were they before you had your livign children?

Quoting iluvsn85:

Im sorry to hear that you had 2 mc's. We have had a few in the past. Good luck if you ttc#3.


Quoting Amy_M:

Growing up I always wanted 3.  We have 2 now, but had 2 miscarriages, one in Oct 2011 and one in Mar 2012.  I would like to have one more, but after the miscarriages DH is a little iffy about it still.
