Hi-I'm Sara, and even though I've been blessed with a wonderful 9 month old son (Evan), I have total baby fever. After numerous discussions with my DH, despite my growing reasons, he is not emotionally ready yet, and with our tight finances, along with a pending move to Canada sometime in the next 10 months, and the desire for a VBAC requiring us to wait until Evan's a year old anyway before getting pg again, I've found myself Waiting to Try for our 2nd baby. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and having someone to wait/commiserate with!

We're like the reverse of you and your husband! I'm from the East Coast (NY) and moving to Canada with my Canadian husband:) His family lives in a small town about an hour from Toronto, and we're planning to move to that area. I love it up there, and am excited to only be a car ride away from my family as well. We met and live in Las Vegas right now and it's really hard being so far away, and really want Evan (and his future siblings) to know his extended family.

Sara, that's awesome! Where in Canada are you thinking of moving to?

I'm a Canadian and have been living for 4 years on the East Coast, USA, with my American hubby!

Hi Claire! It is great to see another CT mom here too! I've been almost hesitant to go there lately because it seems that every time I do, someone else is announcing they're pregnant! We have very similar reasons for waiting-we are moving too before having our next one (DH doesn't want to have another baby here in Vegas after the drama with Evan's birth), and money is definitely an issue with me staying home with Evan.

Hi Becki!

We initially agreed to have our kids 2 years apart, but Evan has been SO high maintenance-feeding issues, weight gain issues, food allergies, sleep problems-that I really want to have the rest of our kids (we want 3-4 total) close together so we can be done with the baby stage once and for all. DH wants to wait longer so that he can have a "break" (he misses being able to sleep 9-10 hours straight every night) before another baby turns our lives upside down again-personally, I don't think that break will come until Evan is MUCH, MUCH older.

We've sort of agreed to shelve the conversation for around 6 months-we're also going to be moving back to the East Coast, but out of the country probably over the summer (the immigration process takes 4-10 months)-so that is a definite factor as well.

Hi Sara,
Welcome! Evan is a cutie :) I'm Kate and I have 18 month old twins. We're waiting until May (or later if I get this new job I just applied for). You are brave to try a VBAC. I would be too nervous.

Hi Sara! Nice to see a fellow Cottontail Mommy on the Board! I too would love another baby but realistically DH and I need more money in the bank and a bigger house before we can even think about #2. I've only been around here for about a month but everyone has been really friendly and welcoming. I look forward to commiserating with you!

Hi Sara, nice to meet you and welcome to the board! Any idea when you will be trying for #2 yet? I think a lot of moms have baby fever when their first is 9 months, it seems like I've been hearing that.

I'm Becki, your CL of WTT, and we're waiting about another year to try for our first. We've been married two years; I'm 24 and my DH Paul is 26. Nice to have you with us!



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!
