hi ive been lurking for awhile but i decided to join in.im lauren,
Welcome to the board:) I am also waiting until summer of 2010 at the earliest but maybe 2011. I'm Ashley, 22, and my fiance Thomas, 27, and I are waiting until we get married next summer, I finish my BA next summer, and I start working fulltime. But the biggest reason we are waiting is because he doesn't feel ready yet and wants to enjoy a few more years without the responsibility of a baby. We agreed on starting at his 30th birthday at the latest but I am hoping that he will agree to the summer of our one year anniversary as a married couple as the baby wouldn't be born until he was 30 if we go pregnant right away;) But he has been know to change his mind quickly so I am focusing on having fun now and hoping the date gets pushed up.
There is also a buddy group in the buddy group and member to member folder for people waiting until 2010-2011. I'm glad you're here and hope to see more of your posts.
Welcome to the board!
Welcome!! you are not alone, there are several ladies on here waiting in the years category.
It's wonderful news that your DD is thriving! No wonder you're not ready to give up this precious one-on-one time. I can only imagine what you went through in the first weeks and months of her life. Actually, friends of ours delivered their daughter as a preemie in eary December 2007 (she was due late January). Poor little munchkin (and poor new mommy and daddy) were stuck in the NICU through Christmas - we could tell it was just exhausting for them. I hope you feel strong after making it through that difficult time!
I'm Cassie (30) and DH is 33. We plan to TTC our first next spring, hopefully starting in May. We are also planning a longer child spacing (or at least that's the current plan). Probably 3 years.
Looking forward to chatting with you:).
