Ok I'm guessing my chance of pregnancy is like less than 1/2 a percent. For one, I am exclusively breastfeeding. For two, just over a year ago my RE told me I have about a 1% chance of conceiving naturally at almost 44 years old. When now I am almost 45 years old.

I'm not using any birth control so in theory it is possible I could get pregnant. I do think a lot about my little frosties and how cute a little sibling would be OMG...my DH would be totally freaked out. Anyhow, this morning I had a feeling of nausea. I never feel nauseated. I have mixed feelings about being happy at just the thought of it But on the other hand, totally afraid of the possibility.

Well it is fun to think about. My little guy is growing up so fast already I really don't know how the time is going so fast.

For me, at 50 with no tubes game's over but...there are plenty of ladies who have "surprise" pregnancies at your age. Especially once all the stress is off to have a child.

You just never know

But even if you aren't, you've still won the lottery with that little guy.

My doctor said regardless of my fertility issues, it was imperative that we use birth control because she wouldn't want us to try to get pregnant for a year. She also said it was not unheard of for women with fertility issues to get pregnant accidentally after being pregnant.

I agree, Raindrops. Don't they grow up fast? Our little girl brings so much joy to our lives and home. Any thoughts about if you definitely want to try again and when?

Well it's true you just don't know for sure. What a crazy thought that would be. I would be just in shock! Well probably won't happen but it is a fun fantasy

Well no more nausea symptoms. I guess when you have dealt with many months or years of trying to conceive you can't help but be on the look out for symptoms.

When I start thinking about wanting another one I tell myself not to think about it seriously now. I tell myself to wait until our baby is one years old and then I can think about it. Also, I am nursing and don't want to stop that. So, I'm just trying to enjoy the present time with him. We just love him so very much.

Are you thinking seriously about another?

I got pg twice naturally between the twins and DD2 - only two naturally occurring pgs in ten years of mostly outright ttc! Crazy. Mc'd both, one at end of first try. Really sucked! It does happen though, and AngMc and a few others are living proof that it might actually result in a baby . Best,
Kenny

Oh definitely thinking about another. We have 1 blast on ice, so we want to give that one a shot. We would love for it to work, but if it didn't we would not try otherwise.

My issue is like you. I am so ga-ga about our little girl, I don't want to miss a thing and focus on cycling. I don't want to give up nursing, I don't want to give up cuddling (with either of my LOs).

I love being the mommy of my 2 little people. In fact that was the reason we waited so long to try to get pregnant after our ds. We didn't start trying until he was about 2-and-a-half, because I just couldn't imagine sharing my heart with another child at that time. I just kept saying that he needed all of us and that he should not have to share our attention...he was too young, too little - so I thought. I thought I had all the time i world to get pregnant with our other 2 babies (my dh and I always wanted to have 3)

But I am stuck in that same place. I want to keep my babies, babies. I want to keep them close. I want to give them their baths, and read them books and run with them in the park, and kiss their boo boos. I just don't want to go through that time where I'm tired and gaining weight and just don't feel like I can take care of the children that I already have while trying to be a vessel for another one. But then I can't imagine not giving that little dream a shot and meeting another amazing child that is meant to be part of our family.

I plan to start looking into things a few months before we hit our dd's 1st birthday. I was told by our clinic that testing would have to be run again before we could cycle. Certainly not looking forward to all of that (not that I went through extensive testing the 1st time...I just can't imagine getting on that roller coaster again).

What to do...what to do...

Ohhhh.....I'm really happy for you to be thinking about another little one. I totally understand about being ga ga over your little girl. I'm trying to enjoy every day I have with my little guy. And I too would love to give my little frosties a chance at life so I could have another baby just like him! He is perfect to me so I would love another one

But the financial reality of it all sounds very stressful My little guy is in daycare and if I had another then I would have to pay for two little ones in daycare. Yikes! And we already have older children so it would be a lot to take on. And unless my little guy self weans I plan on extended breastfeeding and don't want to give that up. I think they want you to stop nursing several months before trying a FET. Although I have not asked my clinic about this so I could be wrong.

It sounds kinda scary to me to be taking care of a toddler, while going to work and being pregnant all over again. It is a lot to take on. But I know if we really want to try again that I could do it. And then there is the reality that the baby we would get may not be so easy compared to the easy going little guy I have right now. So, it is a lot to think about right now. I just put the happy thought in the back of my mind knowing that we have the option to try again if we decide we really want to. I can picture how cute two of them walking around would be.

But I'm excited for you that you are willing to give it a try again and I really hope it works for you
