I know I will be snapped at and reprimanded but I do not care. We have decided to have another baby! Our son is 7 months old and I had my IUD taken out today, so here is to hoping next month is filled with sticky dust! We decided that it is smarted to have our children close together in age and while we are both young. I also think it is smart to have them now because we do not know what will happen with my husbands Army career and a couple years from now he may not reenlist. It is going to be hard but I am ready to take on this challenge. Us Army Wives are damn strong! I got this.

It's safier to wait 3 months after having your IUD taken out to start trying. But good luck momma.

Please wait at least one full cycle before actively trying.
I had my IUD taken out in April, and I got pregnant right away. I lost that baby in June. I got pregnant again in August, and lost that baby in September.



I'm not knocking your decision to try for another child, I'm just hoping you wait a full cycle before trying so you don't have any heartache.
I wish you luck

I planned a pregnancy at 20 when my daughter was 9 months old.



I wouldn't do it again if I had the chance to go back but to each their own.

I have heard horror stories and I have heard success stories. But that's everyone else's. This is my story. :)




Oh yes, I'm poetic!

We are not going to try but we are not going to prevent it. I am giving this one to fate.

DH and I just started trying for #2. DD is almost 17 months old. I got my Mirena taken out 4 months ago. Good luck. :)

Good luck to you and all the sticky dust in the world :)
I just have a small question. You're obviously you're going to do it regardless of what people say but if your DH is possibly not reenlisting at the end of his contract how are you going to afford/adjust back to civilian life?
I have known a few friends who got out of the Army (and a few navy) with kids and spouses in tow and realized they can't afford anything only to reenlist a few months later at a lower rank because they ended their contracts.
