Have a look at the Trying To Conceive section. There's tips on when you should have intercourse and how to work out when you ovulate etc. Sometimes the man is less nervous if you don't go into too much detail about the arithmetic. Good luck! original.gif

Just stop using contraception and wait for things to follow their course. Unless you have some particular issue I see no reason for it to be something you spend a lot of time working and thinking on. Good luck. Hope it happens well for you.

Personally I'd wait a bit longer seeing as your first baby is only 2 months old and give them heaps of attention and love and cuddles!
Also, is your cycle back to normal yet? Mine didn't get normal again till my daughter was 9 months old.
Do you really want another pregnancy this soon? Mine was debilitating the first 4 months, I can't imagine a new born not sleeping that well, breastfeeding AND pregnancy!

But if you're still for it, I'd have sex  LOTS with a man and see what happens original.gif
Worked once so far.

I would suggest counselling and actually working through the issues you have with your last labour and birth. original.gif

I have to agree with this and also waiting until you are ready mentally to go through it again, especially if you had a traumatic birth experience as it's not easy.

I like the sharing a bath idea! lol

#21 BakerGirl

Posted 22 February 2012 - 01:08 PM

How bad could it have been if you're already considering another one?!  My DS is 13 months and I still cringe at the thought of sex...haha...just kidding but I certainly don't want another yet.

#22 MintyBiscuit

Posted 22 February 2012 - 01:13 PM

OK, disregarding my smart a*se comment, I found that with DS around the 2-3 month mark I couldn't think of anything worse than doing it again - both because he was driving me bonkers and the labour was still a bit fresh in my mind. Mine wasn't bad, but even a not bad labour still hurts like hell!

DS is nearly four months now and I can see having another one, and if you ask me specifics about the pain during labour I couldn't tell you. So chances are by the time you're TTC you won't feel as apprehensive?

Sorry I don't understand. blink.gif

Do you mean you only had a 5hr labour, but due to ruptured membranes (your waters breaking), it was painful? That's what starts labour most of the time.

Really, you don't sound ready. If labour and birth is an issue, then like PP have said, you need to see a counsellor.

Right now, your baby is only 2mths old. Devote all your attention to him & enjoy him now, before you rush to have anymore.
