Can an oldie (but goodie) come back

to play? Wow! So many new faces since I dropped out of sight about six months ago.

Hello to everyone! My name is Stefanie, and I am the mother of one DS, Lucas, who was born in October 2000. I posted here for a long time, waiting for my DH to agree to have baby #2. Well things were looking very bleak for a long time. However I am feeling optimistic that there may still be a chance. DH has started to agree that Lucas needs a sibling, (WITHOUT pressure from me!), but he wants to wait until both of our jobs are a little more stable (both of us are concerned about lay offs right now), and we need to get our spending and debt under control. I'm afraid to trust him completely on this issue, as he has made similar comments before. So we will see. I am going to be 37 in a couple of months (yes, a true OLDIE), so I hope I still have some fertile time left to wait for him. I am hoping that by the end of summer or fall, we can finally ttc #2.

Sarah, good luck keeping that envelope sealed! July 2nd will be here soon enough! LOL! It really is fun to call all your friends and family and tell them It's a Boy! Or It's a Girl! But I don't know if I would have your willpower!

Penny, I see you're back too! How long are you planning to stay? Maybe next time you leave I can go with you!

Stefanie, wtt #2

(It feels good to type that again! I really missed this board!)

Stefanie!!!! I'm so excited to see you!! It sounds like things may be looking up for you! Yes, I'm back, too! LOL We ttc'd for 6 months, and then I just decided to try once again to lose weight. It's just too risky for me to get pg when I'm overweight, since I'll be high risk for other reasons, too. I'll probably graduate in September, again. That's when my yearly gyn appt. will be, and I'll talk to him then about getting a little help. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get pg on my own because of my low progesterone. Anyway, I can't wait to catch up more with you! This board has always been so much fun!! (((HUGS)))~Penny P.S. If I graduate in September, that gives you 6 months to work on DH! LOL

Stefanie! Welcome back! Ooooh, I hope you get your stubborn DH to agree this time! It's great to have you back!

No envelope opening for me! I want to be surprised, and I rarely think about the darn thing, LOL! Three more months...three more months...
