What are my chances of getting pregnant a second time

Secondary infertility is more common than you think, and the chances of conceiving will decrease as your age increases. I had been married for almost four years when we decided that the time was right for us to graduate to the next step, that of becoming parents.
I thought becoming pregnant would be as easy as falling in love and getting married had been. I thought that since I was finally able to conceive her, perhaps conception would be easier the second time around – but unfortunately I was mistaken.
However my daughter is now three-years-old and the countless negative pregnancy test kits and harsh monthly reminders from Aunt Flo telling me that she is going to remain an only child for now, are beginning to make me feel worried.
I must admit that although I am not as desperate to conceive as I was the first time around and nor am I suffering from depression like I did back then, my second infertility continues to be a great source of anxiety. Read on to find out more about my difficulties trying to conceive again the second time around. There were a few thing that I wish I would have done when I was pregnant with the twins that I want to do this time. In the first few weeks of being pregnant with the girls I wrote down information about my doctors appointments.
Being pregnant with a second child is an entirely different experience than being pregnant with a first. During my second pregnancy, I realized why a second (and every subsequent) child has fewer pictures and accolades and less attention. For baby two, I totally forgot that I had actually taken pictures of my belly on purpose the first time around. For baby two, my older son asked me what the baby’s room was going to be and I actually laughed. Your story makes me laugh , but a bit scared, too, that it will be what will happen with baby #2. It sounds like a lot of people relate to this article, but it might have been nice for the author to include at least a brief acknowledgment that some people pregnant for the second time (at least 20% of them, statistically speaking) do not already have a living baby, and for them, a second pregnancy is a very, very different experience.


This is a little sad…I lost a baby a month ago (my second pregnancy) and I was already just as thrilled for that baby as I was for my first beautiful boy.
I have only been pregnant once, but all of the baby #2 comparisons sounds like me for my first lol. I even became a fulltime Work At Home Mom (WAHM) so that I could devote my time and attention to my precious baby and be there every step of the way as she grew into the cheerful and cheeky pre-schooler that she is today. Month after month it upsets me to discover that I have still not conceived and I have finally begun to ask myself if I will be able to get pregnant ever again.
Even though it took me a year to conceive the second time, when I finally did get pregnant, I was so consumed with the kid I already had that I couldn’t focus on my second pregnancy.
I made sure to stand in the same place and wear the same outfit each time so we could see just how my belly was changing. I wondered what it would be like and thought about the process, like how long I would be in labor and when I would ask for the epidural (because I knew it would be when and not if). Granted, having a scheduled C-section took the fear of labor and the uncertainty of when I would deliver out of my hands, but I didn’t even think about the basics of what the delivery would be like.
Felt good to read, as I’ve been feeling a bit of guilt over not being obsessed like I was during the last pregnancy! Though I feel I was more prepared and with my second, didn’t bother to read the pregnancy books that scare you half to death, making you worry about all the crazy things that happened 3 times in the history of man, I was just as in love and awe of my second as I was my first.
First pregnancy was in an abusive relationship, nothing was ever celerbrated I was working three jobs coming home and catering to him. I can relate a little to the author just based on the fact of feeling so stinken tired with no rest for my second pregnancy. Those of you who have been fortunate to have easy pregnancies need to consider yourselves lucky!
I had always wanted a big family, so when my daughter was about 1?-years-old, I felt that we were ready to start trying again for our second one.
Every milestone, feeling or picture that I celebrated the first time kind of got ignored the second time around.


When I thought about it, I put a few on the fridge, but I certainly don’t make copies for my parents or in-laws this time. Then second one was more complicated and ended up being an emergency c-section and spent nearly a month in the nicu .
I definitely had less energy and time to myself with my second pregnancy already having a child to care for, was def less of a “princess” lol that was spot on!
This time around I’m having a boy, and have had very little of the morning sickness but more of the rib and back pain. Of course I love my second child as much as my older one, but pretty much everything about my second pregnancy was, in a way, less than my first. I read, with interest and pleasure, what other women were thinking and the suggestions BabyCenter offered.
If baby two wants to see what I looked like while I was pregnant with him, he can look at pictures of me with his brother. It took so long for me to get pregnant and I had to take conceiveeasy to finally do it that we were very excited the whole time we were expecting. I knew pretty much right off the bat with the first and didn’t even know until 17 weeks this time (just a little earlier than we planned).
We still took lots of pictures and celebrated milestones, maybe even more so because I knew what to expect so I didn’t worry as much. Each time is tougher when you already have a beautiful kid by your side needing your attention.
