Hey everyone me and my DH are trying for baby number 2. I have a BEAUTIFUL 8 1/2 month old son and we are trying for a girl. I just got off my BC about 3 days ago and i was wondering if anyone out there had gotten off BC so sudden like me, and how long it took them to get pregnant. My husband might be leaving for Iraq in 2 months and we are trying our best! Any advice or tricks that y'all may think would help? Also if you have gotten off BC how long it took u to get Prego? Thanks ladies!!!

Hey I can't really answer your question but I can totally relate my husband and I are trying really hard to conceive before he gets deployed, he doesn't have orders yet but it's inevitible these days. I just wanted to let you know I got off my birth control the beginning of may, started my period a few days later and started trying right away. We werent successful the first cycle but now is our second cycle and we are are doing everything we can... using opks, preseed, instead cups good luck to us both!

oh i left out we are ttc baby number 2 also... we'd deffinitly prefer a girl because we have a 17 month old son but rather than only bding days before ovulating to increase chances of a girl we just want to make sure we get pregnant soon.

Hey lovemysoldier, sorry I dont have your answer however I was wondering are you at all concerned about being able to handle an infant, pregnancy then a newborn and still feel like you are giving your oldest enough attention? I have a 8.5 month old daughter, I want to start trying for #2 but worry I wont be able to divide time and attention with only 18-20 apart in age. Any think I am rushing #2 and last one too much????

Hey AA. No i don't worry. I was the YOUNGEST in my family. My brothers were 9 and 6 years older than me I HATED IT HATED IT HATED IT. So we decided that we wanted them close in age! So they could be there for eachother.

Hi, I have my kids close in age too. I'm the youngest in my family, and my oldest sister is 8 years older than me, and my brother is 4 years. I don't like the age difference. But anyway, my kids are 3, 2, 2, 1, and I'm 3.5 months prego with our last baby. But with this baby I got off BC, and got prego 2 weeks after. I ovulated EXACTLY when I should have. Good luck with the baby makin! :)

AA: as you see in my last post my kids are very close in age...and I love it...so do they! They always have someone to play with...it's great! And think when they are older, they will have someone to turn to then also. I am able to give all my kids the attention they need. Right now they don't need a whole lot from me, except for my 1 year old, but my other three are like glue to eachother. But I am here for them if they need me. So no I don't think you are rushing it at all. It's hard during the pregnancy just because you are so tired, but that goes away anyway. Good luck! :)

snugglybugglys, you mentioned 2 twice when you were telling us the ages of your kids...does that mean you have twins?
