Issues you encounter when trying for a second baby

I think our biggest issue when trying for a second baby was finding the time and energy to try!! Since you already have one child, there is a lot more going on in you and your partner's life than there was the first time you tried for a baby. You now have a child to care for, and a child to get to sleep before you can even think about trying for a second baby!

Moms of more than one - what was the biggest challenge for you? Moms of one child, do you want a second? If this isn't a too personal question - why haven't you started trying yet?

    I'm glad you were successful eventually!
      We definitely want a second child. I'm a little nervous about trying again because of the losses we experienced the first time. We did find a very successful treatment that allowed me to carry my daughter to Term. It should work again next time, but I still worry.

      I want to wait to start trying for a few reasons. One, I want to have a good year or so where I'm not nursing or pregnant so I can just enjoy our little family. Two, I'm testing for my 5th degree black belt next June and I don't want to be pregnant during training. Three, I want to give Avery her "baby time" if that makes any sense. I want her to get her time to be little before I make her a big sister. I want the same for all my kids.

        Our issue was fear of another loss. We didn't have any issue conceiving and having our first child but we lost our second.
