Do I belong here?

I'm a mom to a wonderful ds (17mos) after a loss in early '08. Dh and I are ready to ttc again in the fall. I would be ready right now but I am temporarily laid off as the hotel I work for was completely devastated by a flood in early May. I'll be re-employed by Nov. So ttc in the fall is our goal.


He's totally happy with not thinking about it, whereas I'm consumed with the idea all the time. I thought maybe I should join ttcam but the girls there are already ttc. So do I belong here? I'm already a member of m/c support and Pal Pg but it's hard to discuss wanting to ttc with people who just had losses or just had new babies.


I feel very stuck right now. I'm on hold... And I'm looking for a home. :)

Hi Alison! Welcome to the board! Your son is adorable! I'm Victoria and I'm WTT my first with DH!

So sorry to hear about your loss. There are a few women on this board who have experienced it as well.

Allison, welcome! This is definitely the board for your situation. I'm so sorry about your loss and temporary layoff, it must be a very tough time right now! (But it sounds like you're guaranteed re-employment? I hope so!)

I'm Becki, 24 and my DH Paul (26) and I are waiting to try for our first. We're not sure when at the moment, but we've been married almost 3 years and we're definitely thinking about it, just getting geared up and waiting for things to feel right, and have a way to afford the mortgage AND daycare. :-)

Hi Allison,

I know there have definitely been a number of women on here who have had previous losses and were back to WTT, either before or after having a successful pregnancy.

This is a great board. I've been on here since late 2007 and now have a 14-month-old and am mostly on the WTT grads board. But, I'm back checking in here as it gets to be less than a year before TTC #2 and I'm starting to get some amount of baby fever (coupled with a lot of nervousness about having another one).

Anyway, I hope you stick around!

You sure do - welcome to the board! There are women here who are waiting for all sorts of reasons, so I'm sure that you'll meet a few who can better relate to the position that you are in.

I'm Jay, by the way. I'm waiting for a number of reasons, but hope that my fiance and I will be trying for our first by our one year wedding anniversary next summer. I'm looking forward to seeing you around the board!

Hi Allison. I am from TN and my husband is from Nashville so I know exactly what company you are talking about and I was devastated to hear what happened to your beautiful company. I pray that you will get ALL of your jobs back and that everything can go back to normal as soon as possible.

We have been married 2 years, and are probably not going to TTC for another couple of years when it just feels right and hubby is at the place in his career we feel completely financially stable. I am currently on Day 1 of no BC because of horrible side effects so I am sure this is going to be an adventure. lol!

Welcome!!
