Trying to conceive baby number 3
I am 20 and married with a 20 month old daughter and a 9 month old son, and now we have decided to try for baby number 3. What can I do or take to increase my chances of concpetion? I never had this problem before as the other 2 were not exactly planned. My period is due on 18th December, so when would be the best time to try to conceive? I have got ovulation test strips from the internet, but I am unsure when to start using them as I just come off the birth control pill and have no idea how long my cycle is. I would also like to know what help I can get when the new baby arrives as everyone I know works, and I am determined to breastfeed this time round as I felt guilty not being able to do so on the others, but the others need me too so this would be hard to do. 1 samantha2403

When you're nearing 30 you'll know what wanting another baby feels like... I've got 2 children and only in the last 3 months have had this terrible aching NEED for another baby. Maybe you are wanting another one so soon after the others because you feel a bit guilty about not breastfeeding and that if you have another and breastfeed that you will make up for it. Nomatter if you have one now or later, you can always try breastfeeding (get in touch with le leche league for breastfeeding assistance). Take your 2 that you have to the library, playgroung, zoo, park, beach, museum, and restaurant. If you survive without stress and still want another so soon... nature will help you out! 4 kayoli

just for the record...I am kayoli after #3 :) Give it time (smiles) It took us 6 months once we decided for # 3 and the first 2 were no problems at all! I really think the more you are trying the harder it is...or so it seems. Just saw Olympic swimming live! Women's backstroke 2 lengths and wished I was there competing. I used to be a GREAT swimmer but have 3 children now and don't do much for me anymore. I suggest doing a bit for yourself and you will find baby # 3 comes so fast you won't know where the time went. And my baby # 3 that I wanted so desperately is sooooo beautiful! I couldn't imagine life without her. She makes wanting # 4 extremely difficult. I certainly am in no hurry for # 4 but I am almost certain there will be one (after a lot of deliberation). As far as breastfeeding goes...speak to La Leche League, don't give up!!! I have a friend with inverted nipples who tried to breastfeed for 3 months before it worked and she persevered!!! Sometimes the battle is difficult but the payoff is greater (smiles). If you want it, you can do it!!! I breastfeed my newest daughter (now 10 months) thinking to myself "I can't imagine it will be done in a few short months". It is an amazing experience. I love being that close to my babies that developed in my belly! Relax... enjoy your husband. After 30 your sex drive kicks up and you want nothing more than to wear sexy night wear and robes and feel sexy for your man and yourself. My husband has started saying "I love this sex peak after 30." HE and I are enjoying each other more than ever!!! So love your sugar daddy...as much as possible. Don't think about the baby it will come...it will !!!!! Enjoy your sleep, enjoy your shopping time, enjoy your other children, love yourself, paint your toenails, wear sexy neglege and make love in the dining room! Go jogging, take your children with you in a jogging stroller, take your children swimming at the beach and make new friends for them and you. Get your mom out to your home to babysit while you get a back massage at the local spa (on medical coverage) and enjoy your self before you share your body with the next baby that will be there before you know it. Yo7u'll get there ...relax! 7 kayolimer

how old are your other 2 kids? i am 30 with a 7 (almost 8) and a 5 year old. How is it managing 3 vs 2? 8 momof2

There does seem to be a big difference in having 3 vs 2. Everything is designed for a family of 4 ...couple examples: vacation packages, food products, most resteraunt tables, cars, even amusment rides. For some reson no one wants to babysit for 3 either. Also with this large of a gap in you kids be ready for a jolt to the system. We had a thrid much later and it was pretty hard to get back into the up all night, can not do this or that with the baby, diapers ...all that fun stuff that comes with a baby. Now don't get me wrong I love my 3 kids more than anything but there is a deffinate difference between 2 and 3. 9 Happy

You should wait until your periods are regular...wait until you have at least 3 normal cycles and than figure about half way in between when your period ends and your new period begins is when you will ovulate. My periods are every 28 days...so I know around day 14 is the best time to get PG. Keep in mind you can conceive a couple days before you ovulate up until about 24 hours after you ovulate. So there is about 4 good days during the month when you have a shot. I am a Mom of Six...so I have this down pat now :) Once you become familiar with your body you will be able to tell right when you are ovulating and will not need to waste money on ovulation kits. But like others have said...you are young and have plenty of time. My husband and I have been married for 19 years...our oldest is in his first year of college...our youngest will be 2 in April. We started young ( I was a month shy of turning 18 when I delivered our first) so if you plan on having a large family like ours than I belive starting young is the best! I am now turning 37...have had all my babies and still have time if we should decide on more :) Hope this information helps...best of luck! 10 karenskare

My congratulations! I think it has worked out. You had two children, nice. The gap of ages between them was so long. How was it? Iím afraid the second labor was tough. I know too many years passed. Anyway for reference you can count two weeks after firs bleeding. It should approximately be your ovulation. Itís the most favorable cut for conception. Donít miss the chance. Hah! Iím afraid we all missed that friendly time. You fertility should have taken some rest since then. My best wishes! I hope you and your sweet babies are doing fine! 11 toytoo
