BABY NO.2 - TRYING TO CONCEIVE


The time has come to think about adding to our family, and we have a plan, but plans like these never really work out how you expect them too, so I am not going to get myself hung up if things don't work out exactly how I'd like (I'm saying this now).

Back in 2012, just after our wedding we decided to try for baby number one.  At the time it was all that I wanted, we had accomplished everything that we had planned to, we did it all the traditional(ish) way, we fell in love, moved in together, got engaged and then got married.  All that was left was to buy a bigger house and start a family.

We began trying immediately, but it wasn't meant to be then and after 6 months or so of trying it all began to take its toll. I was finding the whole thing really stressful, I was emotionally drained and we decided to put a brake on things.  We shifted our attention to travelling, instead of buying a house we would travel the world! Those plans lasted all of 6 months before I fessed up to the hubby that, that wasn't what I wanted at all, and all I really wanted was a baby.  So once again we began trying and after 3 months we eventually fell pregnant.  The little bean stuck, he grew daily and 9 months later we had our little boy.

The last two years have been a whirlwind and it still feels like only yesterday that we took Oscar home.  We had always spoke about expanding our family when Oscar was two, but I have to say that up until a few months ago I felt quite content with our family of 3 and I wasn't sure if I was ready for baby 2.  However over the last 8 or so weeks we have been seriously talking about trying for baby 2, and the more we speak about it the more excited I feel.

We decided that October would be our first month of 'trying' and so the journey begins all over again. I did a video on this last week which you can watch here.  If you are or have been through the process of trying for a baby you will (maybe) know how hard and frustrating it can be.  This time round I am really trying not to get bogged down with it all, and obsess about it.  I won't be tracking anything apart from the start and end date of my monthly cycle, at least not right away.

In my video I explain about how I feel slightly different about trying this time round, but in honesty I am not sure how long those feelings will last.  This is month one and I am coming up to a new cycle, I already know that I am not pregnant this month, and I have to be honest and say that I did feel disappointed, however I am going to remain positive, practice my positive mental attitude and keep moving forward.

Are you trying to conceive, do you have any tips or advice? Let me know your story in the comments below.
