Waiting a year to ttc to try for a spring baby?

    I wanted a spring baby too, but it got delayed because even though I started going to the fertility center in plenty of time, they took SO LONG testing us before they finally let me start taking Clomid, then they started me on such a low dose that my cycle was extra long and I had to be bumped up halfway through. So I would definitely err on the side of 'this could take a while' and if you're ready just start trying.

    I understand where you are coming from. With our first, baby fever hit hard and we didnt care when baby would be born, as long as we could have one. We always knew we wanted our children to be close together AND we wanted the next one to be born as early in the year as possible. Well I found out that I would basically be losing my job ( i have a second to fall back on for a few hours). We thought about maybe just waiting until April/May of next year to start trying again so that I could accumulate hours for mat leave. Well that would have given a large gap in age for LO's so we said screw it lets just do it. So now i am expecting in January and will not (probably) get enough hours for mat leave. We just decided that everything else in the world can wait and our family planning can not.

    Whatever decision you make will be the best for your family.

    I think you got a lot of good advice. I wouldn't start trying until you're absolutely ready - and wouldn't hold off on trying bc you're shooting for a particular month/season, either. It took us a long time to conceive, and some of my friends who thought it would take a while got pregnant on the first try. You never know.

    My husband told me tonight that every time he sees a baby he wants one. He said, "I must have baby fever!" Don't know how we will wait until next June!

    You and I are alike! I have planned out when we want to TTC too based on when I want to give birth and so I can still snowboard while in the first trimester (while it's still safe)! I don't think you are crazy and you should wait until you feel you are ready!

    I am sure that this has been said already, but i would quit any form of birth control ASAP. It takes awhile for your body to regulate itself again. I did NOT expect this to happen with the pill.

    I kept putting TTC off as well, realizing that there really is never an EXCELLENT time in life to have a baby. Especially when you have always focused on your career. It is a whole different way of thinking. The problem arises when you are finally ready to start trying and realize that it is taking even longer then what you had anticipated.... just saying to be cognizant of that! I wish someone would have told me that.
