Hi, welcome to the board! What's your name? I'm Becki, the CL of this board. I'm 24 and my DH Paul (26) and I are waiting to try for our first sometime in the next year or so.

Like you, I'm waiting for him to be ready and he keeps pushing it back and isn't really sure yet. It is hard, but the best thing is having an open conversation about it with him. I'm sure it must be crazy with starting a business, but can you get him to talk openly about it with you and explain your frustration and biological clock ticking? I hope you can sit down with him and get your feelings out there.

Thanks for joining us and see you around the board. Rant anytime when you need to and keep us posted!



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

Hi, Mrsbookworm. Nice to meet you. I'm new here too. I'm Kate and we're WTT for our third child. I have 18 month old twins. I've had the fever pretty badly in the last few months too, although it waivers between being soooo ready and feeling not ready at all, depending on the moods of my kids that day. We're waiting until at least summer to try. I'm glad I found this board because I definitely need ways to keep my baby fever down. Hope to see you around!

Welcome to the Board! You will fit right in. Baby fever central here!!


I'm so sorry about having to wait when you truly want to have a baby and should be able to! I know how that feels and its very hard emotionally to focus on anything else. It's our maternal instinct that kicks in. I hope that through prayer and maybe telling your husband how you truly feel you will be able to change his mind and TTC sooner rather than later!

Hi! I'm new to this board too. DH and I just got married in November, but have been together for nine years. We decided together that we would wait a year before trying to conceive. But I am a teacher and think having our baby in the summer time rather than in the middle of fall/winter makes more sense. Besides we waited to get married to finish school and start our careers. He's 28 and I'll be 26 so I think we are just at a good place in our lives and with our age. I just hope he doesn't really make me wait the full year.
