Hey ladies!

I'm Liz (22), married for 7 months to Sean (22). Our tentative plan right now is to TTC starting next spring sometime. The original plan was January, but that puts me in my busy time for work. Regardless, this is my last cycle on BC, and then I'm planning to chart. (BC is making me an emotional train wreck anyway, so I would be stopping it regardless).

One of the biggest things holding us back right now is that I can't get family leave until I've worked for a year, and I'm planning on making sure that even if baby came early, I would still hit that point.

Financially, we're in great shape. Our only debt right now is our house, so there's really nothing holding us back except for the family leave time. Well, that and the room that will eventually become a nursery is currently housing all the tools we've been using to remodel. Thank goodness all we really have left is replacing some carpet and painting!

Anyway, since I surely can't talk to any of my friends from college (I graduated early, so they're all still in school), and my best friend is pregnant with a honeymoon baby and isn't really excited about it, I thought this would be a good place to hang out for the next several months!

Welcome Liz! Glad you've joined us! I feel the same way, I don't have anyone in real life to talk with about baby fever who's in the same situation, so this board is great.

Congrats on what sounds like a new job - what do you do for work?

Thanks for the welcome, Becki!

I'm a social researcher for a university. I actually just started last week, but this is a secure position. Otherwise I wouldn't be wanting to try.

DH and I talked about it tonight, and he was hoping to start TTCing in January. Tempting, but I guess holding out an extra two months won't be too bad...

How awesome that he's so excited for it, too! What do you plan on doing for daycare when you have the baby?

There's a daycare center on campus that I can use, and DH only works 3 nights a week, so he'll stay home some too.
