Baby fever forcing me to de-lurk…

I’ve been lurking around for a couple weeks now, and I feel a little silly (well, really silly) joining in since I’m sooo far away from TTC, but my baby fever is forcing me to just jump in! :-)
I’m Jay, 25, and I live in NC. My boyfriend and I have been together for about 5.5 years. I’m WTT for obvious reasons, with the number one reason being that BF and I aren’t married yet (heck, we’re not even engaged lol). Even if we were to get married soon, say next week, we’d still wait to try for at least a couple years – I’m in graduate school and have another year and a half to go before graduating. Also, once we’re married, I’d like to set aside the first one or two years as strictly couple time. So it will be quite a bit longer before we start our family together – probably about 2.5 to 3 years.
(On a side note, BF has said several times that when we get married, he doesn’t see the point of waiting and would like to start trying right away. We both love big families and want to have four children, so while I can also see the need to get started asap, I still want to enjoy the time we’ll have alone before bringing a few bundles of joy into the world!)
Anyway, just wanted to step out of lurkdom to say hello. This seems like a great and fun group, so I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone for the years to come before we’re ready to TTC!
