So i got my IUD in September of 2016 and I just took it out on the 5th of this month because my husband and I are going to start trying again..my question is how long should I be bleeding? I’m going on day 5 and I am starting to get super irritated. It’s heavy and nasty, I know that the IUD regulates my period to every other month and it was only 3 days long and now it is gone so should I expec... More
I’m turning 34 this year & my LO is about 15 mos (& we didn’t planned him). He’s an active (& a handful) toddler boy. But it doesn’t stop me & my hubby for wanting to have another one, plus our family & friends keep begging us for another?! We initially decided when our LO is more independent & can able to do more on his own, probably closer to 2 yrs old. But everywhere ... More
What do you say to (the second or third) someone who asks when the due date is for a child you're not even starting to try to conceive? I recently got married, and now there seems to be a rumour going around that I'm pregnant. Does this happen to everyone, or just me?
Hello Mamas and Papas! My daughter is 7.5m now and I almost mentally prepared to start trying for #2. Those of you who have two kids under two years old...What was/is the experience like? Taking care of older sibling and being 1-3-6-9 months pregnant? Older sibling adjusting? Feeding both kids? Changing both of their diapers? Etc. Any of your advice, information, pros/cons would be helpful!
I’m just a loner with no friends and I wanna say that thinking about having a second has consumed me the last week. I want my son to have a sibling- and he’s 16 months so I don’t want them much further a part. We planned to try this summer so as summer approaches I have big time anxiety. Pregnancy is not for me and honestly infant days weren’t. But I want the family. But I’ll have a wild todd... More
My spouse wants to have our second child so that our LOs are about 2-3 years apart. With the cost of living in our area so high, I’m struggling with the fact that I may need to be a SAHM. We can afford for me to do so (luckily), but even with our current baby I knew I was ready to get back to work when my maternity leave was over. How do/did you juggle the costs of a second child? What help... More
My boyfriend and I recently had our first kid together (he has one with his ex-wife) and we have talked about having our coming kids close in age so we want to start trying once our son turns 1. Well I’ve done some thinking and I know I should have thought about this before having my first, but I would like to wait til we’re married before we have any more. I want the family last name, I want t... More

Looking to be informed on ppls personal experiences or advice. How far in advance did you have it removed before trying? Did you have complications with trying after being on it? Any info would be great! I was informed that i could try right ... More
My husband and I had a slip up, so we decided I should take the morning after pill. I spotted little bit of light pink for 1-2 days a few days after taking it but never got my period after. I took it on Jan 20th and was supposed to get my period Feb 10th but it hasn’t arrived. Also took 4 pregnancy tests (4 days ago) which all came back negative.. Anyone have experience with Plan B?
My husband wants a big family - he makes jokes about wanting 10 kids. Sometimes I don’t think he’s kidding. We have a 6 month old and I know he wants to get going with baby #2. We’ve been fortunate that our first is pretty easy going. However, she’s pretty dependent on sleeping with us - which we are actually okay with right now. I’ve heard that the first always tricks the parents into having m... More
My son is already going on 26 months... my husband has just finally made his mind up that he really does want a baby #2. I want to start trying soon so he and baby #2 won’t be too far apart in age. But my husband wants to wait another 4 months minimum. His only reasoning is because if we are successful in the first try (like last time) the kids would have birthdays within weeks of each other. H... More
My very soon to be fiancé and father to our 10mo son told me last night that he doesn’t want more kids. For years he has been trying to convince me to have five kids, when I only want two or three. Two months ago he told me he wanted to start trying after we get married. And then out of the blue last night, he says he doesn’t want anymore kids. I have no idea what to do. I know for a fact that ... More
Im not pregnant. But we are thinking about baby number three. I do want more kids but now that my youngest is 4 and going to start school this year, it has me thinking do i want to start over after both boys are in school and i will finally get a break or will i regret not having another. What is everyone else's thoughts and opinions?
We currently only have one son (3.5 years old). My husband and I are also both only children, but I REALLY want a second kid before it's too late (we are both 36). My husband doesn't feel that need and said he was perfectly fine as an only child, whereas I remember desperately wanting a sibling. But then I wonder if it's worth a shot because of our age, and increase risk of having a... More
It'll stop for a few days, and then start right back up for a month.. Is this normal whatsoever? Has anyone else experienced it this bad? I am terrified it's going to reduce my chance of having more kids.. Which is why I chose this method was to reduce the possibility of other birth controls making it harder for me to have more. Help please 😔
I am one of two kids and so is my husband. We have had conversations in the past and agreed that we both want 2 kids. The problem is that we have 2 boys that I totally adore BUT I can’t stop wondering if we should “try for a girl”. I love kids, I love watching my boys’ relationship grow. I know that my husband does not ever consider having another one. He has mentioned that he doesn’t know if ... More
Is anyone on the Depo shot or have been? My son was just born in June and I wanted a bc that I didn’t have to worry about taking everyday and I didn’t want anything implanted in me so I gave the depo a try. My doc said that I should do pretty well with the depo (because I was always on the mini pill beforehand and I never had a problem with it) because the depo and mini pill have same hormones.... More
“Trying” for our second! It took over 2 years being off birth control for us to get pregnant with our first.. my cycles were very long (41 days) and I had no signs of ovulations so when we found out we were pregnant, we were surprised and excited!! Now, this time around, my cycle is around 32 days. I am now getting discharge during “ovulation” at different times every month (give or take 4-5... More
