Hello all. I have been lurking here for about a week now and figured it was time to introduce myself. I am the proud mommy of three...even though I didn't birth all of them. My oldest daughter is 8. She is from my DH's first marriage, I have been her mommy since she was a year old. It became legal when she was 4 when I adopted her. My dh and I have a 4 year old together. We also have my 17 yo brother that we have been raising since my mom passed away in 05. We are WTT even though I am not sure when. My dh is now now now now and I am the one that is saying wait, wait, wait. He is taking a job transfer early next year and I do not want to be pg with the stresses of moving. I have miscarried before so I am also a little nervous about trying again especially in the middle of a move. A part of me wants to try now in case it doesn't "take" right way but the other part of me says wait in case it does happen right away. Well, now that I have introduced myself I hope to take part in your discussions instead of lurking. Thanks for reading.

Hi there!


Your family sounds beautiful - thanks for sharing:). It's exciting that both you and DH are keen to conceive another, and it's just a matter of figuring out the best time. I'm sure that with all your experience being a mother of three, you will have a good sense of when the best time will be!


I'm Cassie (30) and DH is 33. We're waiting to try for our first child next spring. The experience of a couple friends has convinced me to wait until we're ready for it to happen right away before we TTC. Both conceived their second children on "the first try". One actually said to me when she told me about her second pregnancy that she didn't know why people like her figure "oh they'll just try and see what happens" but don't really think they could happen right away:). Incidentally, they are both amazing mothers - they were just both taken aback at how quickly their families grew.

Hi!

Welcome to the board, I am glad you decided to post:) I don't have any advice for your situation but I know that this board is a great place for people waiting no matter what the situation.

I'm Ashley and will be waiting until summer of 2010 to start trying for number 1:)

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I have some new news about our situation. After much prayer and talking we have decided to go ahead and TTC. I am nervous, scared, and excited. So, I guess my time on this board was short lived. I wish the best for all of you!

What an inspiring story! I love hearing of people with hearts big enough to adopt children. :-)

Welcome to the board. I can understand you wanting to TTC/be PG when you're in a low-stress situation. Being PG is stressful enough on its own, I assume. :-)
