Hey everyone! I've posted on this board a few times but so far have never really hung around as regular. I guess I am officially here now though, as I am a newlywed! We don't feel quite ready yet to try for children, for a number of reasons--just not mature enough, not ready to give up our freedom yet, but I have to say that the idea is crossing my mind more and more lately. Another big reason for us to wait is that I am a substitute teacher and have been waiting patiently for a job. Our fiancial situation isn't very stable until I have that permanent position, and even then I expect I will need to wait at least 2 years to get settled into my position enough to be able to take a maternity leave. We also bought a house that requires a lot of work and is definately nowhere near being ready for a child to be brought into it.

So, I have a preliminary interview for a teaching job on Friday the 11th...cross your fingers, please! If I get this job, it will mean that we can get going on fixing some of our financial woes, work on our house, and possibly start planning a time to TTC!

Hi Erin, welcome! I'm Becki, your CL and my hubby and I are WTT for our first for an unspecified amount of time - maybe 6 months to a year more. I hear you on the maturity thing - DH is waiting until he feels ready, until he feels like he can handle it emotionally and responsibly.


Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

Congratulations! I'm Jay, and DF and I are getting married in about two months -- I can't wait :-)

We'll be WTT for at least a year after our first wedding anniversary, but possibly two. So if you think you'll be waiting for a while, I'll be right here with you ;-) Looking forward to seeing you around the board more often!
