Lurker here in need of some support. Here's the story - DH and I were married in January this year. By then, I'd already been dreaming of babies for months, and DH knew it. We decided that we would start trying in March (2010). Well, after about a month of married life, that date was pushed back to June because DH wanted to spend more time together as just us. Of course, I was disappointed, but we still had a date and it wasn't that far away.
In March, I told him that I was going of BC so that I could start charting and normalize my cycles. Not very supportive, but then, he's a guy and I suppose no man's going to be excited about beig told he's gotta suit up for the next three months. After a month of that, though, we were pushing out TTC date back to January 2011. Again, I was disappointed but there was a date. Plus, we'd just bought a house so I had other things to keep me busy. So I went back on the pill.
...Until the end of September. I had an appointment to see my OB/GYN to tell her we were going to start TTC, I stopped taking the pill, and I started charting. On the day of my dr. appointment, "we" decided that it would be best to wait at least (yes, at least) until January 2012 to start, so that we have time to save up after the house purchase.
I'm basically heartbroken at the prospect of this. I don't know what to do anymore. I told DH flat out that I wasn't going back on the pill and that we'd use charting/condoms until we were ready to start TTC. But the thought of waiting another year? I thought I'd already be pregnant by now. How do I cope with this?
