Hey all! Been seriously missing in action! DH and I went to Michigan to visit inlaws. It was a great time. We visited lighthouses and wineries and relaxed tons. It was good to get away. To give you an update on our WTT situation....

DH's job has gotten better. He's still concerned for his job, and still looking for a new one, but he's not quite as stressed as he was a few weeks ago. We went through a few rough weeks, when we were seriously thinking of just upping and moving to Michigan to be near his parents. That would have menat uprooting everything, with not much money in the bank, and not having a job until we moved there. When we were there, we looked for jobs and looked at houses, and I got soooo depressed about the cost of housing there. We couldn't afford anything but a shack, and compared to what the money we could spend here would get us, I spent an entire afternoon just in tears. Anyway, on Sunday, DH and I talked about this in true depth, and I expressed my concern about moving....that it would push TTC off for months, if not a year, and that a lot of things we'd planned on would change. That if we wanted to move to Michigan, it could happen in a year or two, after we have our baby, and he's got a little more experience in another company. We're not tied here forever. He made the decision then to solely dedicate his job search where we are. I'm happy. I was supposed to be off the pill as of the 1st, and it was hard this entire weekend realizing what should have been, but no longer is, but this talk gave me confidence that we will be TTC soon! If not in July rather than August. He continues to state one more pack of pills, and as long as he doesn't get fired, we can start. Because him changing companies will not affect insurance, as we are both on individual coverage. Soo....(big sigh) I'm feeling much better about our TTC date. And, am not getting excited like I was, but I can save the excitement for the day we actually do not take another pill :-D

Thanks for listening! And, hope everyone is GREAT!

Jlynn (TTC #1 July/Aug :-D)

Welcome back! I am glad to hear your update. Sounds like such a fun time in Michigan!

It is so stressful thinking about moving - especially to another state! DH and I are thinking about buying our first house and I am VERY stressed about that!!

It's great that you and DH had a good heart-to-heart about everything. Looks like you guys are really thinking things through and making some good choices! Good luck!

I've been pretty good lately. Well this being my first cycle off the pill I seem to be REALLY emotional! And it's day 25 and I still haven't ovulated so I'm worried about that! Grrr. And we've only been at this apartment 1 month and DH wants to break lease and buy a house! Such stress! But other than those major things, life is good. We just celebrated our 2 year anniversary yesterday!

Hi Jlynn,

It sounds like you had a wonderful time here in Michigan. I always have fun up in the resort towns too! As far as prices on homes here in Michigan (rolling my eyes here) it is expensive and we were thinking of moving into a larger house. HA! what a joke, I thought about it and the amount of stress it takes to sell our house and look for another to be in by the time we close. NO WAY! Not while we're trying. If we decide to take a break in the TTC dept. later, we'll move then.

I'm glad the job is doing good and things look stable. Yes, moving to another state is stressful!

Take Care

I'm really glad things are calming down for you guys and there is less stress. I think it is great that you were able to be open and honest with your DH about your concerns with moving and everything, sounds like you guys have a wonderful relationship!

Good Luck,
