Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Ok, I thought I'd do a hello thread!
I'm Laura, I have a gorgeous whirlwind of an 18 month old son (who is currently napping, my house is so quiet!). We have decided to start ttc no.2 which is very exciting.
Im quite scared as since having no.1 I've developed some medical issues, I have an adenoma (a small benign tumour) growing on my pituitary gland which I'm on medication for. If it gets big my periods stop, so can't get pregnant. I've also got an under active thyroid which I'm on meds for, if my bloods aren't right, I can't conceive, or it will be harder. Argh!
Also, my bloods have to stay right if I do get pregnant as I'm at higher risk of things going wrong. From what I gather I'll be under consultant care to start with and the hospital just monitor me a bit more closely so lots more blood tests, woo hoo!
Also, I'm terrified of giving birth again as I haemorrhaged last time and felt horrendous for weeks, couldn't bf etc.
So lots of vibes please that I can get pregnant and things go to plan. So far our plan is to just dtd a lot! We did this with no.1 and I got pregnant straight away so fingers crossed!

Hi LLL, nice to be TTCing with you again. What are the chances of having 2 babies born on the same day!! I hope yours is a short TTC journey & that none of your medical issues hinder your chances x x

Poking my head in, hope your ttc is a short and that your medical issues don't cause any problems now or during pregnancy. Remember every pregnancy/birth is different ...and you know you can do the parenting bit now!
