Short wait...after a long time

Wed, 12-03-2008 - 6:31pm

Just thought I'd say hello. I've posted in this board a couple of times over the past three years but never regularly. My husband & I have agreed to TTC starting in January. I am on my last pill pack right now. I should get AF the week before Christmas. So, I'm blurring the line a little by starting at the end of December.


Anyways, I just wanted somewhere to hang out for the next few weeks because I can't stop thinking about what we are about to do. I am scared, nervous and excited all at the same time. We've reached this point (about to TTC) a few times but every time one of us has chickened out. There will be no chickening out this time. I am sure of this and he knows it too :)


Anyone been in this position before?


Well, I guess that's it for now. Can't wait to get to know you all. BTW, my name is Katherine. I am 28.

WTT Buddies- TTC December - Since you are starting at the end of December.

I am so glad you decided to come back, do you live in Washington state? I have heard it is so gorgeous there!I really want to go visit. We will be going to Canada near Lake Louise, Vancouver,etc for our American honeymoon and are still deciding if we will visit Seattle as well.

I'm Ashley 22, and my fiance and I Thomas 27 are getting married here in Germany not next Monday but the Monday after- crazy:D We are waiting until Dec 2009 or June 2010. Mainly so that I can finish my Bachelors, get a good full time job and for Thomas to be ready.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Ashley!


Yes, we live in Washington State. It is so beautiful out here. My husband & I are originally from the Southeast. So, it is very different but wonderful.


I am so jealous that you are going to Lake Louise! That is the one place in Canada that I have noet been that I am dying to go to. We keep talking about it but just can't find the time or money. If you do have the chance to go to Seattle while you are out here, you should. It is a great city full of great people! We visited a couple of years ago & we loved it so much that we moved out here!


Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. It's such an exciting time! What are you studying in school? At least you have a good solid goal to accomplish before ttc. Ours was only ever moving. Which with my job is easy & hard at the same time!


Once again, thanks for the warm welcome :)

Thank you for the welcome Rochelle :)


Believe me, I understand how hard the long wait is. I think I first realized I was pretty much ready to have kids about 3 years ago. But, due to circumstances...I kept chickening out. That's even after my DH agreed. But there was about a year period where he was definitely not on board.


Time does fly by quickly, though. Sometimes too fast :)
