I need a lot of advice lately... SO the hubby and I decided that it was time to start "actively" trying to have a baby...Anyone know of any advice or suggestions or even some encouraging words for us? Because, I could definitely use it. We haven't been trying to prevent it since September of '08, but now it's time to start actively trying... Wish us lots and lots of baby dust? LOL

Leah-I am so happy to hear that.Don't worry and stress about it to much and it will happen.It's as much fun making the baby and it is having the baby.Good luck....

well thats great to hear dont stress it since you havent been trying to prevent getting pregnant the first thing to do is find a dr to look at BOTH of you ck his ....count and ck your count too. you know make sure everything is right and correct look in the yellow pages. i looked in there a year ago because I had my tubes tied and I want to try to have another kid and id have to go for invetro fertilization we just never got any further because i didnt have medical back then and even now we cant do it cuz wed have to pay cash still. good luck to you 2

Leah, I am sooo excited. I love babies. My hubby & I are trying too! I hope to be pregnant sometime in the summer. Best advice-no stress. It really does affect conception. I had a really stressful job and couldn't get pregnant-I was ck'd & everything. I quit my job & 3 months later-Prego. Let's see some other advice, um after having sex you want to lay flat on your back or elevate your legs slightly for like 25-30 minutes. No hot baths or showers right after. No hot tubs or extremely hot showers for hubby as they kill the sperm. Contrary to public opinion, you want his sperm count up near your cycle of ovulation. You ovulate around approx. 7-14 days after the start of your period (each woman is different) You can purchase an ovulation test for like $20 at Walmart - during that time you want to do it 1-2 times a day prior to that time not quite as often (to up his count) My husbands advice (soo male) have sex-lots & lots of sex lolo 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Thanks you guys have been awesome!!! Last night after I posted I went and talked to the hubby (I had to wake him up! LOL) and I was like "are you sure you want to have a baby, because I know I am, but I can only judge how you feel by what you tell me" and he was like "honey, trust me, I've already planned out where the crib will go...etc." I "almost" cried.. LOL 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

And christine, your hubby is funny... It took me until now to get it, and I was like LOL Yeah.. I'm slow today LOL 

★Elizabeth★ --- 8 years ago -

congrats. my main advice for you is to try not to go through your last trimester in the summer. last summer was horrible for me. my oldest was a january baby and that wasnt too bad. 

Claudia --- 8 years ago -

yay how exciting!!! 

Christine --- 8 years ago -

I agree with Elizabeth-best baby was born in May. I was warm in the winter & delivered before the heat. Worst was born at the end of August. Ilooked like Fiona-Shrek's wife in that I had no ankles due to daily swelling. I did and I use to cry about it lol 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Yeah I was hoping for a march Baby...So that would mean I'd have to be pregnant in June... So idk if that will happen this time around, but there's always that chance I guess LOL 

Claudia --- 8 years ago -

It only took us 2 months :) I will have a January Baby! 

★Elizabeth★ --- 8 years ago -

congrats claudia! it seems like the next wave of pregnancies may be coming. it seems like we have several at once then none for awhile. 

Mrs. H --- 8 years ago -

Congrats Claudia!!! Good luck Leah. I definitely agree about not being big & pregnant in the summer. It is miserable. 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Whoo! Lets hope so :D 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

Claudia- congrats wow I as so happy to hear that. Leah- best of luck to ya. when we really started it took about 3 months 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Now another question. We want the babies sex to be a suprise when he/she is born, so we want unisex stuff... Would it be too early to start looking or possibly buying things? Like, I saw on HYS a stroller/carseat from Graco for 50.00, and we were looking at one like that for 189.00??? Am I getting too excited or is that normal? Should we start preparing with stuff like that or should we wait? Argh, I wish I had my mom :( LOL 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

Well I personally would wait, and save. You can still buy on HYS but you will have more money for diapers and what not. I would open a baby account and start putting like 20 buck a paycheck or more there so when the baby is born you are more ready. 

★Elizabeth★ --- 8 years ago -

i would wait a little for the bigger things, but start looking for some unisex clothes and blankets and things. walmart has some great clearence on baby clothes. i just got my girls alot of jeans for $2 a pair. 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Vanessa thats a good idea! And elizabeth, baby clothes shopping gets me depressed since I don't have one now LOL 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

HAHA that is how I get with girls clothes in the store since I only have boys I get a tiny bit teary eyed 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

See, I want a boy, and I want a boy first. LOL then I want a girl. So looking at boys clothes always gets me teary eyed, but girls clothes are like nothing for me. I already have a name and EVERYTHING. I told my hubby "but but, I want one noooooow" and he says "well you know there's at least a nine-month waiting period..." LOL 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

LOL hes a smart one LOL I like the since of humor. I know the feeling I wanted them as soon as possible. I still want a girl to know what she would look like 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

LOL are you going to try for a daughter? Or are you done? 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

I want more, but my husband says we are done with the 2. We would need a new car and well maybe a bigger house. 

★Elizabeth★ --- 8 years ago -

see, im good with my 2 girls, but hubby wants a boy really bad. but we also promised his mom we would have an even # (she was a middle child) so it looks like i may end up having 4. 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

And I did not want to have any kids after 25 which is in JULY so the way it goes now our kids will close to moving out by the time we are in our late 30s early 40s 

Leah --- 8 years ago -

Yeah... I want two, and I think I'd be happy with two, but I'm really not sure anymore. I guess that's a bridge we'll cross when we get to it huh? 

Just sharing! --- 8 years ago -

Vanessa what happens when they are in their 30s living at home, lol. 

Vanessa --- 8 years ago -

Oh you mean my brother LOL no well we talked about that they have to work or be in school, they will not be allowed to stay home after high school if they are not working or in school. I think it is fair
