New Here

Hi all,
I'm new here and decided to join/post. I'm excited to talk with other people going through some of the same feelings and dealings that go with this wait. I'm soon to be 33, my partner is 28 and we are about a year (July/Aug 2010) from ttc #1. Unfortunately I'm less patient emotionally with this wait. It's logical to wait, but my emotions get the best of me sometimes. I'm surrounded by new moms, pregnant friends etc. It does get a little hard when I just want it to be a year from now! I try not to let myself feel that way too often, but at least a few days a month it gets the best of me. Anyways--Thanks for reading.

That's a nice story about heading over seas and staying ;o)
I haven't been to Canada or Australia--I live in Oregon. It makes sense to wait until after your trip, I can see why you are doing that. Your trip will be so much fun. What a nice vacation before starting a family. Its' nice you have that to look forward to! We are doing some US travel this summer, mostly for visiting family. With pets we usually don't stay gone longer than a week at a time....but it's enjoyable to get away anytime! I actually will be leaving town this week to visit my parents for a week, which will be nice.

And yes, the pregnant coworkers/friends etc...you are so happy for them, but for me there's always this little bit of envy (fortunately that does not consume me).

Have a great weekend.

Hi and welcome! This board is pretty cool!

Aussie: I'm about to turn 28 and hubby is 40, what a coincidence! :)

Hi Melissa,
So we are on a similar time line :o) that's exciting. Do you find yourself wanting it to get here so quickly? I worry I'm going to be looking so forward to next year that I'm going to forget to enjoy this year!

The primary reason for our wait is basically financial. I'm paying off my credit card debt, he is putting money away/building his business. We talked last week as I wanted to move the ttc date up to this fall...good thing he's so grounded and logical because we've been planning next year for a while and I was ready to throw all the logic out the door and just say let's go! My monthly hormone cycle doesn't help either--I know when I'm ovulating so it plays mind games on me (I have an IUD for BC)....

Anyways, thanks for the response. I think this board will help my year wait as it's hard to discuss this with my pregnant friends and my new mom friends because i don't want to sound 'jealous/envious' of them.
