My name is Julie. I am 28. I have been married to my sweetheart since March '03. Had DS#1 in Jan. '05, DD#1 in Feb. '06. Both kids were definitely surprises to us (we weren't trying TO have kids but we weren't trying not to either). I have never experienced "baby fever" before (got pregnant to quick to..lol) and now, I have it BAD!!! DH and I have spoke on and off over the past year about trying again for baby #3 - but anytime he'd be all for it I would have reasons against it and vice versa. Well, all the times that I was for it, I never experienced anything like this! I go to Target and lazily go through the baby aisles picking up the bottles, looking at car seats and clothes. I come on ivillage daily and check out the "expecting" clubs. My husband giggles at me. He's not quite on board yet.
We are looking into moving out of state in the next 1-6 months. DH has said that once we are there and have the money coming in, then we can start trying. Since we're so unsure as to when we'll move - we don't have a date set as to when we'll start trying, so no cutsie ticker to count down the days (though rest assured that as soon as we have a date, i WILL have a ticker!!!!!). I have started tracking my cycles on Fertility Friend AND on the ivillage Fertility Planner. Since the first 2 kiddos were unplanned by us, the whole "charting cycles" and planning part is definitely NEW to me!!! But I'm excited to see how it all goes!
I also have 28 more pounds to lose to get to my "pre-pregnancy goal weight". I am already 40 pounds lighter than what I was when I got pregnant with our first baby (60 pounds lighter than when I got preggo with baby #2). So, I'm already starting out a whole lot better - but I want to get into the 160's before we start trying. I'm also thinking that I'm going to go ahead and start on the prenatal vitamins. No harm no foul.
I look forward to sharing this journey (and waiting.....) with the rest of you!!!!
