Waiting...

Hi. I've been stopping by this board from time to time, and I don't know if it helps me to work out my feelings about waiting or if it simply adds to the obsession (and sometimes heartache).

Hi Erica ...


I'm just a lurker here (in fact, this is the first time I've ever posted!) - but your story struck such a strong note with me,

Hi Erica, and welcome to the WTT board. It must be hard to make such a big decision. It would be really hard for me to wait that long with such bad baby fever. I hope you're able to make peace with whatever decision you choose. Good luck!

Hi Erica,
Welcome to the board! My name is Becki, I'm your CL. I'm 24 and my DH Paul is 26, and we're waiting to try for our first.

It sounds like is has been so tough with school and working and having babies through it all! You must have an amazing amount of determination. But I hear your conflict with wanting ideal child spacing yet your determination to get through school!

All I can offer is rant anytime here if you need to get things out. We're all wanting but waiting, so we will understand wanting a baby even when it's not the logical time. Time goes so slowly sometimes when you're waiting.

Hope to see you around the board, hang in there!

Erica, it must be very hard having to juggle your desires to have another baby with academia. It is always in the back of my head that I could be passed up for promotion if I have another baby. There was talk (allbeit joking) right after I had my daughter that if I got pregnant again my boss would fire me. I know that they can't fire me for being pregnant, but they can always come up with some other excuse. Maybe it's irrational, but the fear is there!!


I wish you luck in your journey!!!
