New here!

Hi everyone! I was asked to post an intro so here it goes!

I am glad I found this board! I need to get some things in order before TTC, although I have the baby bug now, so I need some support in waiting!

I am glad to have found a I village board to relate to. I was on IV with my daughter's baby board, but it has fallen by the wayside.. so I hope to meet some nice women here.

Name, SO's name and ages: Cindy 32 (33 in January), Ashley DH, 33

Location: Pacific Northwest

Kid's names and ages if any: Amanda 18 months (almost)

WTT until?: Somewhere around July/Aug/Sept of 2010. We will re-evaluate when we get there.

What do you do for work?: I work full time as a veterinarian.

Main reasons for waiting?: DH isn't ready for another. Two.. finances. We don't have much of anything in savings, and last time I was on bed rest for 5 months of my pregnancy. Unfortunately, I am the breadwinner. Last time I had to rely on family to help us by, this time I NEED to start saving better. We cannot afford to move from our 2 bedroom condo, so things would be tight here with a second child.. however, I dont' think a new house will happen by next year, even if I DO save! Three: my weight. I'd like some to come off! Fourth: I have a rare medical condition, and have to be on steroids.. not good for baby. I am hoping that my current episode will go into remission so I can get of the meds before next summer.

Biggest thing happening in your life right now?: Dealing with a toddler who tries to put everything in her mouth, and whose favorite word is "no".

Well, that's all I can think of! I can't wait to get to know everyone!

Thanks for the intro Cindy, welcome again to the board! :-)

Your last pregnancy must have been so difficult on bedrest. Were you home the whole time or were you hospitalized? How stressful, and you must be very strong to want to do it all again.

We're thinking of TTC next summer too - sometime between June and September would be ideal, so maybe we'll be TTC together!

Hey Cindy! I'm just replying to your question here! :)

I watch Suze's shows every week, I read a few of her books, I think you'll love, "Young, broke and fabulous" and "Women & Money", both should be available at your local library! :)

I'm hoping you won't have to go on bed rest again!
