Hello everyone, I've been lurking on this board for about a week, in part because I'm not feeling very patient about waiting. I was on the NQE board last summer, and then things got very very crazy with work, actually getting engaged, and then planning my wedding and getting married in 3 months....all while going to school at the same time. It was a bit crazy.

So here's where I stand right now. I'm Jenni, I'm 29 and I'm Married to David (33). We're waiting until June to try for a couple of reasons. 1) I wanted to be married at least for a little while before we threw kids into the mix. 2) Our honeymoon is in June, we going on an Alaskan Cruise, and I didn't thing that the possibility of mixing morning sickness with seasickness was a good idea. Also, if I stay on the BCPs until June, I can make sure that I am *not* on my period while we are on our cruise... I think I've even figured out how to make it a better than even chance that if I O that month, It'll be while we're on vacation.

Anyway, rationally, I want to wait until the plan is in place, but emotionally, I'd like to get started now. I know it's probably not going to be a piece of cake for us, because my doctors have been telling me to get pregnant ASAP for 10 years (I have endo). In any case. I've already started on a multivitamin, and am trying to lose more weight before we get to that point. I also made an appointment with my doctor to change one medication and have scheduled a physical/preconception appointment for May (the soonest I could get in to my Doctor).

So I guess I've written a short book, and it's time for me to go now...

Hi Jenni!

Welcome to Waiting to Try- I am glad you decided to stop lurking:)

We all understand emotionally wanting to start right now!! I guess what helps me is knowing that I really do want a summer baby, that a few extra months won't change anything, and of course having a husband who doesn't want to try until fall helps as well;)

I hope you have fun waiting here with us!

Ash - you're right, spring will probably be better for me, it's our slow season at work, and I can try and finish out the quarter at school after the baby is born, while not trying to work at the same time, and then only have to work in the summer, and not try to do both. My husband looked at me the other night and said "You want to try now, don't you?" and I said that part of me does, but the rest of me really does know better.

Montclairmomma - I thought about the not-trying not to, but it still doesn't address the AF on the honeymoon cruise thing, and well, that was kind of what we agreed to for June anyway. I was planning to track CM and try to make sure that we BD during my fertile window sometime...without making it much of a big deal for DH.

Flagirl - I thought so too. If I go back to normal right after ending the BCP's then I should O the last day of vacation. I charted before I went on the pill to avoid getting PG, so I have some idea of what my cycle should be like... No guarantees that it'll go right back to normal though.
