Great news! We picked a date!

When I first visited this board I had no idea I was within a week and a half to setting a date with DH. I just knew after taking care of my sweet nephew over Easter weekend that I was definitely ready to have a baby. Little did I know DH is too! I thought it would be at least a year before I could talk him into TTC.

So, here's the plan. I was going to try to schedule my annual exam in June, which is when I normally go. I was going to talk to the doctor about preconception then. Unfortunately, last year I went a few weeks late, on July 1. So when I called to get an appt in June, she said sometimes the insurance company can be a stickler about having another annual too soon, but I could talk to my insurance company. I went ahead and scheduled a July appt. Originally, I was thinking I could take my next pill pack (May), then MAYBE one more (June), then be off for almost 2 months before we TTC. That's what I've heard is recommended. DH is willing to TTC in AUGUST!! That would put us with a baby in May or June if we conceive right away! (Of course depending on the timing of this appointment it may be pushed back to Sept.) I'm soooooo excited! We've already started to discuss finances and life changes. I'm planning on quitting my job, but I have great bosses who aren't going to let me go that easy and will let me work from home on an as-needed basis, so that will leave me with at least a little bit of income. I can hardly wait--I talk to DH about it all the time, and he's pretty excited too. I can't believe this is really happening!

I guess I can tell DH now that I'm visiting the Waiting to Try board. He thinks I'm still on the food boards with my mom!!

Look forward to talking to you all more!

Congratulations!! That is so awesome! I could just hear the excitement in your post - lol! It sounds like everything is going to work out perfectly, and I'm glad that your dh is on the same wavelength as you. Only a few months to go...let the countdown begin!

Hooray! August is right around the corner! I'm so happy for you! That's cool too that your boss will let you work from home a little bit. I wish mine would do that!

My husband and I will be ttc in August too. I can't wait either. We will be celebrating our three year wedding anniversary in August so I'm more than ready to start a family. At first we were going to wait until October to ttc but then my DH decided that we could start sooner. I hope the next three months go by fast so we can start trying.
