Re: Update in post #33- Does OB's plan sound right? How can I go the natural route?

I'm not necessarily anti-medicine. Just anti-pushy doctors. ;-) that's awesome that your period came on its own!
Went ahead and started clomid today. Dh seems like he likes the idea of going ahead and trying it. Maybe this is a sign that we should go ahead and use the clomid since we have it.

If you think you might want to have more than one more baby, it might be worth it to get this next one going, work on healthier eating and exercise while pregnant, and then see how things shape up post partum.

I had somewhat irregular cycles before I had a baby, not bad, but I would ovulate anywhere from day 14-21 and it took us 5 months to get pregnant. Not a big deal, but when AF came back after baby, all of my cycles were like clockwork, 28-29 days, and we had just stopped avoiding, but were surprised to get pregnant so quickly because I was traveling a lot that month and only saw DH like once in a 3 week window!

So you never know, if you are able to lose the pregnancy weight within a few months, you may find that after baby, your body has an easier time ovulating (though breastfeeding can certainly delay that).

Good luck with everything! I still would get a new OB though, I wouldn't trust that one to deliver by baby :P
I'm 24. So we have plenty of time. We just want our kids to be close in age. We just want one more...if I'm lucky I might be able to talk Dh into a third but I doubt it. He's pretty content with the idea of just 2 kiddos. We are trying so hard though because we want them close in age and my mom had a hysterectomy at the age of 30 and she had similar issues I do now so an early hysterectomy scares me into wanting to try harder and get finished now considering I may be headed that way too.
