Hi, my name is Tricia, 26 and I'm married to DH Brian, 25. We've been together for 10 years (5/24/00) and married for 4 (10/21/06). I've been on the boards in the past when I thought we were close to TTC, but life happened and DH changed his mind.

Just a past history, after getting married DH and I agreed we would wait at least one year before TTC. One year came, we decided to start trying the following Spring of 2008. I was let go from my job in March 2008. I was unemployed for 3 months, but I did get unemployment, but this depleted our savings, because when I went back to work I was making a LOT less than I was and gas shot up over $3/gal & with my 45 min commute, it was a struggle to say the least.

I "convinced" DH once I had been at that position for a year, I felt we were in a good position to TTC, so then July 2009 came and DH & I agreed for me to go off the pill. I was off BC for 2 months and thought we were actively TTC, however DH lied to me. I ended up getting the Implanon (implant BC) in November 2009 to avoid the issue of TTC altogether.

You are stronger than I am, I would have been long gone!
I hope you can TTC soon! Being a mother is such an amazing experience!

Thanks Ashley. It's been hard to stay, but would've been harder to leave since I love DH so very much. I guess I failed to mention that every time DH backed out, he had a very valid excuse. He needed time to grow up and for us to become more financially secure. I'm hoping we'll be TTC very soon and I can't wait to be a mother!

Thanks Victoria. There have been many great times as well, but wanted to give a good background on the DTT/WTT front. I just wish I could squeeze a date out of DH.

Tricia, I remember you! I'm Adrienne, DH is James, and we just had our first LO in November, and I'm back to WTT now.

I'm so glad to hear that you have worked through so much stuff with DH.

Congrats on reaching a place where you both are on the same page with wanting to have children. It takes a lot to make a marriage work and it sounds like you guys worked hard through the trying times. Are you going to talk dates with your hubby soon?
