Hi, my name is Gracie and my SO is B. We have only been together for a short time, but we both want to have kids very much. We are both not in a place where kids are a good idea yet. We need to finished school. He is done in December, and then needs to look for a job. I have about three more years to go. I also have an eating disorder, and need to be in a really good place with that. And gain about 35 pounds to be at a healthy weight to carry a baby. We are living far apart right now, so moving into the same house and getting wed are also things we must do. I also want to get off disability. To do this I need a job with a good health insurance plan to help cover my medical issues. I see us getting married in 2 years, and starting to try in 2 1/2 years from now. I hope to move in with him as soon as I can living so far apart and not seeing him every day is really hard, and I hope to end that very soon. But, with his school in one part of the state and mine in another and tuition really cheap where I am it gets very hard to move close together. Also, there is the job issue and where will he be able to get one that he likes, in the field he wants to work in, that pays well. I just don't know. I've liked here for years, and it is nice to finally be posting.

Peace and Love,

Hi! Welcome. :)

I'm Jenn (32), my DH is Will (31), and we're WTT for our second child for me to lose about 30 lbs. Our daughter is 18 months old, and I'd prefer a slightly larger age gap, too, so I'm not in an extreme rush to TTC. It's nice to see another new face on the board. :)
