Just wanted to introduce myself!
I'm Ashley also 23 and my husband will be 28 in May. We are WTT until this Sept/Oct and I am SO excited! I am going to be a SAHM and love cooking and stuff like that so I am already looking forward to being able to go to the local farmers market weekly and things like that more often:)
I hope you have a great time posting here!
I am going to stay home with our children as well; I'm also looking forward to that.
How many children would you like to have?
I want 4 and my husband has agreed to at least three since he comes from a family of three. I want at least 2 1/2 years between each child which is another reason why I would rather start sooner instead of later. Plus I have just had baby fever since what seems like forever LOL.
I know the feeling!
Wow! 6- my mom is one of 6:D (I however am an only child:)
Yeah we live in Germany where 2 kids is already like almost a big family- well OK maybe not big but almost no one here has three or four. At least not the Germans who have been here for 4 or more generations.
My SIL is TTC right now but recently informed me that she is hoping she doesn't get pregnant until September. I was a bit annoyed since that is when we are starting but we are keeping it a secret so there is nothing I can do about it:( I would just like it if she gets pregnant soon so that there are more moths separating our pregnancies but at the same time it is way more important for me to just have a baby soon then to time it out perfectly with my SIL. I am sure everything will work out well anyway:)
1 year between babies? I know some women do it and think it is great!- and I bet you would belong to this group but I can't imagine getting pregnant when my child wasn't even a year old yet. Seems like SO much work and stress to me, but to each his own:) Although you should know that it is much better for the body if you wait at least 6 months after each pregnancy before having another:)
