Jealous of preggo friend

Hi, I'm Olivia, this is my first post.
I have a 14 month old DD and I'm WTTC #2. I just found out my friend who has a 9 monther is pregnant and the first feeling I felt was jealousy! I'm in the middle of getting my PhD and DH is going back to school to get a better job. We're just in no position financially to have another. We were planning to wait till I was done with the proposal phase of my dissertation (sometime next Fall) but finding out my friend was pregnant just gave me the itch bad! At least I have my little one and school to distract me for the next year!

Hi Liv, welcome to the board, where Baby Fever is a rampant disease. We know how you feel around here! I don't know anyone pregnant at the moment, but I'm jealous when I even hear of old acquaintances who are having babies!

I'm Becki, I'm 23 and Paul is 25. We're waiting to try for our first until next summer/fall. Right now we're thinking August or September might be best to start trying.

How was it having a baby in August? I think being 9 months pregnant in the height of summer is something I'd rather avoid!

Nice to meet you, stick around! :-)

Welcome Olivia!! I'm pretty new here too!! DH and I are planning on TTC #2 June 2010. We have a 3 year old, Ayden! Its hard once you get the baby fever, there's pretty much no going back. I have thought about talking DH into starting now, but it just wouldn't be the best time. We have everything, hopefully, worked out for next summer so I'm gonna try to stick to it!! =)

Hi and welcome to the board!! I'm hopeful, WTT until 2011 or 2012, but lately I wish I could start in October 2010, lol! There are a few buddy groups for TTC dates down below, feel free to participate in one! :)

I've been there so many times... just because logically you know now is not the right to TTC doesn't mean that your heart comprehends it.

Academia is such a common cause of postponed family planning. We're in the same boat, as DH is working on his PhD, part time, while working full time. If you ever need to vent about being "responsible" and waiting until a more "appropriate" time to bring children into your family, we're here! The folks on this board understand the emotional struggle of making these kinds of decisions. Welcome!
