Kimberly: That is so nice of you to rescue all these animals! I'm a big animal lover and admire that! Nobody came here as well for Halloween as we live in an apartment building.

Adrienne: Hi, it's good to see you here! How exciting that little James will be arriving soon!! I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, I hope you hear from her/him soon!

Becki: I have been stagnating as well as I feel so much better than when I was at 165, and I'm trying to lose more weight before TTC, not always easy! You've done so well, you're an inspiration!

-When are you WTT until? Indefinitely. I was WTT until 2011-2012 when I first joined the board, then moved on to this fall 2010, then the summer...I wanted to try right after moving here as it was our number one reason, but DH was so stressed and I'm glad we waited because it's been very hard lately on us...I have been doing a ton better health wise since I've been here though, so I'd have to have another chat with DH as to when we could do it financially when he works again...I don't think we can buy a house in the near future anyway.

When are you WTT until?:

We don't know yet - maybe sometime in 2011, depending on how things are going with our jobs. We're stable financially with the two of us, but would be scraping with a baby and having to pay for daycare would be a hardship right now. We're building up savings. But I anticipate we'll both be moving up in our jobs in the next year or so, and that should make things easier. It really depends on that. So I am hoping sometime in 2011, or by 2012 if things don't improve as quickly as we'd like.

Wow, Adrienne -- time is really flying! I remember when you got your BFP, and now the baby is nearly here! I can't wait to read all about it -- hope the last days of pregnancy go very smoothly!

>> When are you WTT until?

DH and I are back to waiting, but this time with no set date. We originally agreed to start trying next summer at our one year wedding anniversary. Then we got a SERIOUS case of baby fever shortly after the wedding and decided to start trying in February. But after that, we came to mutual decision that it would better to wait at least until we have a definitive idea of when we could expect to be back in the States for good. It could be next summer, which means we'd be working with the original plan of trying after a year of marriage, but it could be another year overseas, in which case we wouldn't try until summer 2012 at the earliest. Whether one year or two, I feel pretty good about waiting till we're definitely back in the States, though. It wasn't until the prospect of facing pregnancy and childbirth overseas was staring me in the face that I realized how important it is for me to have my first back in the States. I hope it works out for us as planned. At any rate, my baby fever is pretty low these days, which is surprising considering how nuts I was about it just a month ago. I still want to be a mother, and I'm so looking forward to the two of us having a son or daughter in the next few years, but I'm not feeling that crazy urge to have a baby right this minute anymore, and from what I can tell, neither is DH. We've come a long way!

Ashley, idk if you remember me but I was on your Shamrocker board in the very beginning, and then I ended up having a blighted ovum (miscarriage) at 7 weeks or something.
