Just lurking around iVillage and found this board. Little intro here. Name is Bridget (Not a hard one to guess lol) and my DH and I have been married since August of last year. We are waiting to have a baby until we are more financially secure and I finish a bit more of my schooling. It is so hard!!! I've been a nanny for almost 5 years and LOVE kids and I am currently with a family of 4 kids, 7, 5 2, and 2 and they are so much fun. Especially the twins. I can't help but want a baby of my own. My DH hasn't been arond kids much at all, so he's really nervous about it. I'm totally comfortable with babies and kids. So therein lies a big hurdle! Getting him to even want them. *sigh*

Anyway, just thought it would be nice to talk to some other women in my situation. Thanks for listening.

Hi Bridget, welcome to the waiting to try board! We're all in the same boat here in one way or another. This is such a great place to vent when your tired of waiting or to share in another's happiness. Just a great overall support board! And I haven't even been here that long.

My DH and I are waiting until August to start ttc mostly for financial reasons too.

Sounds like you have a dream job - I'd love to be a nanny!

Hey, welcome to the Waiting Room! This is a great board with a funny mix of women, some who are waiting and have baby fever so bad they can barely stand it and others who are waiting because they can't decide if they are ready yet.

I personally fall into the first category, ME WANT MORE BABIES! I have one DS who will be two this coming Sunday and I am WTT#2. We are waiting because I need to get into better shape, we need to save for and get another car, and I need to find a job closer to home (I commute 3 hours each day). We are hoping to get these things accomplished by the end of the Summer.

Anyway, enough babbling and WELCOME!!!

Hi Bridget! Welcome! I have had baby fever for a while now myself. My DH and I got married in August almost two years ago. This is a great board. You will find lots of support here.

Welcome to the Waiting Room Bridget! It's a little hot in here right now with all the baby fevers popping up all over the place...myself included. Jump right on in and hopefully it'll make your wait seem a little less excruciating!

Welcome to the board. My DH is an only child and has never been around babies either, so it has taken a lot of convincing and patience on my part to get him to even think about it. But, the good news is DH is finally coming around and almost seems excited sometimes when he talks about babies. Give your DH some time--I'm sure he'll come around too. In the meantime, feel free to post your frustrations here--the ladies on this board have experienced it all and have wonderful words of wisdom to offer.
