Hi,
I have been scouting around ttc boards wishing for the day when I can join them and start meeting fun people and talking about all sorts of those things when I stumbled upon this board! I am so excited that I am not the only one that is so excited about trying, even though it is in the future, that they want to talk about it. I am 25, same as my DH, and we will be TTC next year in August. I am a teacher who needs to do a two year BTSA program and although I don't mind being pregnant the day it ends, I have to wait.

I hope to get to know you guys better, and I am glad I have a place to vent all my increasing baby obsession things (which my DH has decided that he will hear no more of until next August at least).

Hi and welcome! I'm Kimberly (23) and my s/o is Stephen (25) I'm hoping things work out so we get married next summer, and then start trying in 2010. He hasn't quite hopped on board just yet though with TTC then...I think he'd rather wait another 5 years lol

Welcome to the board...we can always use more members, especially teachers. There are quite a few of us here. I am Elyse, 23, married to DH, 24, since Oct 07. We are WTT until late '09 at the earliest.

Hey Suzie,
Thanks for the reply! I am a 2nd grade teacher, so I have the little ones :-) Basically, in CA when you finish your teaching credential program, you get a preliminary credential that will expire in 5 years unless you clear it. To clear it, you have to complete a BTSA (spelling?)program. As far as I understand it, BTSA is a 2 year program that is very similar to doing your credential again. I will have to go to monthly meetings, complete assignments, and have someone observe me once a week while I continue teaching my regular class. The good news is that once it is done, my credential can never expire. So... even though both myself and my DH want to TTC now... if I stop working to have kids, my preliminary credential can expire. I figure that it won't be too bad being pregnant for the 2nd year of the program, and it gets me a baby ASAP, and then someday I can go back and teach again.

Keep me posted as the year goes on, maybe we can vent about our troublemaker students together :-)

Welcome to the board, Lisa. I'm Ann (21) and my BF's 27. I'm a student and I work full time, so I'm waiting until I'm almost finish to start trying (January 2009). I feel like I can't wait but I know I have to, so I know what you're feeling.

I hope you enjoy it here and it'll help you get through your wait.

Hello and Welcome to the board!
I think a lot of us are the same boat. Waiting for good reasons but wishing we could TTC tomorrow.


Anyway..my name is Sandy (32) and my dh is Jason (31) We will be TTC in 2009 most likely late summer/early fall so possibly the same time as you.


We're waiting due to buying a house beginning '09 and saving up $ and taking one last vacation before TTC next summer to Seattle.

I'm definitely trying to save too, Sandy - both long term and short term. We're actively looking for a home too, but we're not in too much of a haste because I want to be close to finishing school before we do that. If one comes along before that though we'll definitely take it.

Nice to meet you.
