How did you know you were ready to begin TTC again?

For me it wasn't that I knew I was ready to TTC but instead that I was done. It was just a feeling and I knew that I wasn't going to have any more babies.
I always said that I wasn't going to have anymore after Zach and then we got a some-what scary but pleasant surprise when we got pregnant with Asher. After we lost her I knew I wasn't going to try again. I loved her but she was gone and I didn't feel a need to try to replace the empty spot she left. Very hard to explain.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

We just knew we wanted to start trying again as soon as the doctor gave the okay. Of course, we found out we are expecting before then and we're thrilled.

Elaine, I completely understand what you mean, even though you don't need to feel like you have to explain.

We knew right away that we wanted to try again.... I was thinking about waiting a year but it happened a lot sooner than expected.

We just waited the three months the doctor recommended each time. We really wanted to have a baby and didn't want to waste any time. (Took us 4 years and three miscarriages to have first DS)
