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. But the hormones and

HI!!! I am Mandy and I have been here on and off the past 6 to 8 months. (cant ll
remember how long exactly). a

I have an 18month old daughter and she is amazing. Last year in April DH was laid off for 4 month (his job went from ful ltime to 75 percent) So he still had a job just couldnt work for 4 months!!! But in June I got a really good job and am making more than I was before.

We are WTT indefinetly. DH just cant decide if he wants another or not. And I am soooo READY to try RIGHT now.

Anyways congrats on being on the same page with your hubby! :-)

Hi Tricia!!! It sounds like you have had many ups and downs with your TTC to this point. I hope this is truly a turning point for you and that you and DH will be starting a wonderful family soon. I have experienced many of the same situations with my DH, I have been ready to TTC for a very long time, it took many years for him to finaly come around. We will be TTC in one month and we are both ready and excited.

The one thing that I can say from experience is that you definately want both of you to be on the same page and ready, because then when the time comes, it is so much more special for both of you.

Thanks ladies. It's definitely not easy. I know one day we will have a family, but I really hate waiting. I feel like I've waited forever.
I really need to do better about coming to the boards, but I can't get on during work hours and when I get home, it's craziness :P

Hi Tricia and welcome back to the board,
I'm Kate and we're WTT for baby number 2. I'm glad your DH is now on the same page as you and I am full of admiration for your loyalty and strength during what must have been a very difficult place for you guys. I hope you get a date soon.

Hi Tricia, I recognize you too from a couple of years ago! I've been here since 2007 I think.
I'm Becki, 25, my DH Paul is 26. I'm in a pretty similar situation to you having married young - we've been married more than three years already and are also still growing up. We talk about babies all the time and both look forward to them, but DH is not yet at the point where he feels stable enough and ready for the responsibility of a child. So we're waiting - no date yet. I think we're slowly getting closer, but we're also working on moving onwards and upwards in our early careers and getting settled. Being able to afford childcare is a major issue, but also just getting established in our jobs and maturing as people.

I congratulate you on sticking with your DH and working through tough issues! It sounds like your marriage is that much stronger for it. That's really awesome.

So looking forward to WTT with you in the same boat, and maybe we'll end up TTC together!

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?
