My doctor told me she recommends waiting nine months after a c-section but then said something about six being safe under her breath, and that's all I needed to hear. Six it is!
I probably should clarify. "Try" might not be the best word. We're just going to remain open to life and see how God continues to grow our family.
I can't help but wonder about my current fertility, though. I conceived last year while taking no medications except metformin, cortisol and synthroid (all maintenance drugs), and there's a good chance I'll conceive in a similar way again. I've had regular cycles since Luke was three-months old (albeit with pretty late peak days) and I know exactly when I'm ovulating, which I never really could tell before. And all my doctors have always told me that the best fix for endometriosis is pregnancy, not to mention my OB said during my section that my pelvis looked beautiful. As of November 2010, I had no endo or adhesions.
I'm actually looking forward to seeing what happens, without all the despair, depression and stress for once. And with two under two, I think it'll be a long time before I start to get worried. All I have to do is look around at our chaotically wonderful home full of teething, crying, poopy babies hugging my legs and calling "Mama" to remember how blessed I already am.
After all, my youngest isn't even sleeping through the night yet. Who in their right mind wants to add pregnancy and another newborn to this?
I guess I'm not in my right mind. I just look at their faces and want more.
I never thought in a million years I'd be talking about this. Trying for our third? It's amazing.
