I thought that I would introduce myself and hopefully spending a little time here will help to alleviate my baby-mania. I’ve gone absolutely crazy with baby fever. I’m 26 years old and have only been married for three months, but DH and I had dated since we were 19. I feel like we’ve waited long enough to get this family started and now it’s time to make up for lost time. We were originally planning to start TTC in February 2009, but last month DH decided that we should wait until after we move. We’re planning on moving out of our apartment this summer and are searching right now. He said that he wanted to make sure that I could help with the move. (ugh!!!)

Thank you for the warm welcomes! I’ve also done a lot of looking into lots of things to get ready for TTC and keep myself occupied, but the one thing that I’ve been trying (failing) to avoid is charting. At my last OBGYN appointment, I told my doctor that we were going to start trying sometime in the next year. He told me to relax and not worry about charting or tracking for the first 6 months at least and to just have fun with it. A nice sentiment, but how can you not do everything possible when you want a baby this bad?


But for now, I found a reason not to track. I looked into it this month for the first time and found that this Saturday should be my most fertile time of the month. I already know that I’m going to be spending all day Saturday in mourning of another lost opportunity.

Hi!

I'm Ashley 23 and my husband Thomas 27 and I have also only been married for 3 months but in July together for 4. I CAN NOT WAIT to start TTC! Seriously it is awful for me right now. We aren't waiting on anything specific since we have own our place, go on vacations, have jobs, etc we are just waiting for him to be ready and it is driving me batty.

I lurk on the TTC and the pregnancy boards all the time. So don't feel bad, most of us here also do a lot of research and know all about charting, the pros and cons of cloth diapers, pros and cons of using a midwife, etc- anything to help deal with the time and prepare.

We should be TTC sometime this year. We are going to Mexico in July and I am hoping to start TTC soon after that although right now he is not on board. We'll see I guess:)

I hope you have lots of fun posting here!!

Hello and welcome! You don't sound crazy at all -- I think most of us have lurked over on the EC boards at one time or another.

I'm Annie (28) and my partner is Jamie (25). We've been together about three years, living together a little over two. We're waiting indefinitely at this point. Probably another 3-4 years. Jamie works full time and goes to school, so we're waiting for her to be finished with school and change careers. And we'd like to save more money, etc.

Jump right in and start posting. We'll keep you busy and entertained until your wait is up. (And then some -- our grads love us so much, most of them keep posting!)
