I figured that now would be a good time :)

I'm Kristen (29), married to my DH Tom (29). We just celebrated our first anniversary in August and started talking about TTC shortly before that.

Our plan right now is to start trying in January 2010 - if all goes well, we'll have an October baby. We're trying to plan around tax season (DH is a CPA so we'd rather avoid the chance of having a little one in March or April since he wouldn't be able to be around much) and ideally, I'd like to get a week in of the school year so I can get paid during maternity leave (I'm a teacher). I'm definitely not looking forward to the chance of being in my third trimester in during the hot & sticky summer months though!

We'd love to find and buy a house before we add another person to our family, but the real estate market is still pretty rough up here in NJ so we're waiting it out. Thankfully, we were able to sell our townhouse this past May before the home values really started falling so at least we don't have to worry about that.

I'm so happy to have found this board - sometimes baby fever takes over and it's great to know that there are others out there that are waiting like we are :)

Welcome Kristen! Now that I see your pic I remember that you've been posting for awhile, but I didn't remember your username. Thanks for the official intro!

January is coming up fast! How exciting. :-) You could be holding a baby in your arms one year from now!
