I have been here and posted once or twice (under an old screenname) years ago, but now I feel like I can *finally* join you all.

I had hung around WTT before, but since it seemed like our "waiting" had no end in sight, it felt weird not knowing how long I'd BE here (if that makes sense).

Anyway, I'm Anne and I have one daughter who is 4.5. She was a honeymoon surprise for us, and we weren't ready for children, but we've been able to make it (obviously). But we have been WTT for #2 ever since simply because we needed to put our lives in order (my husband was still in school FT when she was born, with 2 years left to go; I was only working PT; we were in debt, etc.). Also, DD was VERY high-needs (still is!) and between the stress of building our lives and dealing with a high-needs child, DH got more and more disinterested in ever having another. It's been really hard for me--even though DD has been high-needs, I've wanted another since she was, like, one. I've been waiting so patiently, though, because I'd hate to go through another pregnancy without DH 100% on board. Been there, done that. Not fun.

Sooo... anyway, I am back here now joining y'all because DH has turned around lately and now our game plan is to TTC #2 around August (give or take a month or two). Woo-hoo!! I am incredibly excited.

We have some other milestones to hit before then (purchasing our first home and him getting a better, different full-time job) but we decided that even if those things don't happen before TTC, we will still start trying around then.

I am so excited!! To me, August can't come soon enough!

I'm glad there are a bunch of people here who can help me handle the anticipation until then! ;-)

Hi Anne,

Welcome (officially!) to the board. August isn't that far away and it sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy in the meantime. Jump right in and start posting!

Anne - Yay! Welcome! I'm an infrequent poster here too... but I know that feeling and how EXCITING it is to have a DATE to TTC. We will most likely start to TTC in December 2009. It feels like a long way off to me, but just having a date is WONDERFUL. (Of course I have a 11 week old here at home, but never you mind that little fact! LOL!)


I'm so happy for you and I hope that the remainder of your wait goes by quickly!
