Damn biological clock!
I just had #1 a year ago, and I have started to get thoughts in my head about #2.
I have always wanted two children. I think that is a good number. Not too big, not too small. I know that it is a lot of work, but hopefully not too much, as it is only two.
I am 36, and Hubby is a few years older than me. I do not want to put off #2 too long, because I do not want to be too old raising children. On the other hand, I would like to give us a shot at conceiving naturally. Not that I am expecting that, mind you. I expect to go back to the RE for #2. Natural conception is a nice fantasy for us, if nothing else.
Hubby is scared of having repeats of the health issues I had last time. That is a possibility, but it also might not happen. I am fully willing to be followed by a high risk OB, and get checked by a cardiologist, should I get pregnant again. I will probably also schedule a c-section, and not do labor at all. Which means I can pick a friend to go in the OR with me next time.
After all the trouble we had with the first one, I still want to do it again. But maybe not too soon.
I think I am going to not do anything this year, except not prevent. If it happens, cool. If not, we will head back to the RE in 2012. If I cannot get pregnant naturally, I definitely want to use my embryos and eggs from our first IVF. Hopefully that will make it more affordable, and give us the greatest chance of success.
