After trying to fall pregnant for 2 1/2 years, my husband and I finally made a baby. Our beautiful little girl is now 21 months old and full of energy. We have decided to start trying for another baby this month. I am worried that it will take a long time to conceive again. The first time we were TTC we waited 1 year until seeking help. We both went through testing and our specialist advised that it wouldn’t be impossible for us to conceive naturally, but it wouldn’t be easy either. Turns out my husband didn’t have as many little swimmers as he should have. We did fall pregnant naturally (we were planning our wedding and decided to concentrate on baby making after our honeymoon, but found out a week before our wedding day that I was pregnant). I am anxious that now we have made the decision to TTC again, we will go through all of the stress like last time. And I know stress can make matters worse. Not to mention I am now a working mum with a very busy toddler to look after. I guess I should stop worrying, allow life to take its course and be thankful that we were already blessed with one child. But I’m just so nervous and there’s this nagging feeling inside me that says we were lucky once.
