Ik. People think that's you're just like, bamn I want another baby. I know you, and I know that you've thought it through. That's the only thing bad about the internet... Obviously people are gonna put in there two cents, but once they do it. They should let it be. You've made it clear that you aren't going to change your mind so, I don't know why people keep trying. They should really just get over it, and more or less support you, and hope for a healthy pregnancy for when you do conceive.

Just because you've cared for toddlers before, doesn't mean that that's how yours will be. I've got 4 nieces/nephews that I helped raise, and mine is nothing near them.

At least she has experience. I know somebody that's never even held a newborn til a month before her baby was born. And now, 10 1/2 months later she's 14 weeks pregnant. Everybodys different. I know her personally, and she could easily do it.

I said to have an IDEA of how it is. Not that I automatically know exactly how raising MY toddler would be.

It is up to you in the end but think about a year from now with a 1yr old and a newborn. It seems like it is a piece of cake until it happens. I had a 22 month old and a newborn and that was tough enough. At 12 months and a newborn BOTH children will be needy. Your 1 yr old may not be walking. Think about grocery shopping, going out to eat, going to the park ect.



I admit, when I had a newborn I wanted 1 more right away but I say and thought about it and now with an almost 3 yr old and almost 5 yr old I know I was insane.

Honestly, people are only saying things that are in the best interest of you and your son.



Your son deserves your undivided attention. TTCing is stressful and I am sure you know how horrible pregnancy could be.



Didn't you have PUPPS? Could you imagine dealing with that and a newborn?
It's your life though, good luck..

Quoting ℳommy to Kai♥:" It's not that I think I'm pregnant, I'm just wondering what it is..I've tested..not today, but any tests ... [snip!] ... because YOU wouldn't do it doesn't mean anything to me. I was hoping for some help but whatever. I'll figure it out on my own."


I'm 7DPO and I am having discharge also. I did a lot of googling and the best I can figure out is that it's just from estrogen in the body. It can be a sign of an impending period, or pregnancy, or anything really since women are built with estrogen. It's nothing to worry about.



For the record, I was 8 weeks post partum when I started TTC my son. I ended up being 4 months PP when I conceived. So, I'm not judging. They are 12 months and 9 days apart in age.



The one thing I can say though, is he was born at 35 weeks, and I blame myself. I was 4 cm dilated at 30 weeks, and although it could happen in ny pregnancy, I sometimes wonder if it was my fault.



And with that aside, I found raising a 1 year old and a newborn together was not all that hard. I really enjoyed it actually. My older was walking at 7 months though, so she made things 1000x easier as far as not having to carry her and stuff. It honestly didn't get that bad until my son was approaching 2 and she was almost 3. THEN it was a nightmare. They are going on 3 and 4 now, and its still patchy.... but for the most part (aside from hitting/fighting) they are good.

I agree with batgirl, she isn't judging you by any means, she's just giving you other factors to think about.




Back to the actual question at hand, If you feel like your ovulating, the mucus your having sounds pretty normal. Your body prepares itself by getting ready to make an egg stick by creating more cervical mucus.
