Hi gals... new to this area. I was TTC for a couple of months, trying to hit a golden window of spring 2009 before I start a new & difficult job July 2009. Unfortunately it didn't pan out, so now I'm officially back "on hold" for more than a year (I won't get paid maternity leave until July 2010). I'm pretty bummed about it.
about me-27, still a student, graduating in the spring. My partner is 41 and she works in tech support. Our 8th anniversary is this fall. (of dating, since we aren't allowed to get married). We'd really like to get cracking because my partner is scared of being an "old" mom, but due to her age and health I have to be the one to carry the baby and so we have to time everytihng around my career. Our first choice would probably have been adoption but we aren't allowed to adopt, so we used artificial insemination with donor sperm.
So, I failed my two months of TTC-the second month I don't think I even ovulated. When we TTC next year I'm going to push for Clomid-we can't afford to waste money on cycles where I don't even ovulate! We did buy a cute little bassinet-it was only $10 so we figured what the heck, and it has an attached screen cover to keep the cats away from the baby. I'm planning on taking down to our storage area this afternoon. How's that for depressing?
