We are WTT for our first and it absolutely consumes my thoughts probably for the last 8 months or so...with so many of our friends pregnant I can get emotional pretty easy.

Like tonight my DH came home and told me that one of our friends that we haven't seen in awhile is going to be in town and oh yea by the way she is pregnant with twins...and I just started to cry. I am happy for her but darn it when is it my turn!? ( no TTC date set). And the whole time that we were out tonight I was thinking about what it's going to be like, and what I would want for strollers, etc.

SO with all that being said I am an emotional wreck when it comes to WTT. :)

Next time a post like this would make the most sense in the folders
Coffee House Chit Chat
Planning for TTC & Beyond

This Folder, Front Door Intros, is for introductions and pretty much nothing else.

It is no problem that you posted the question here. But if you don't get a lot of replies, that is why :)

I am feeling really good with WTT since we just set a date that I can live with, but before we had set the date I was getting really depressed thinking about how long I would have to wait to TTC my first.

I am in between.

I have a 7 month old - and sometimes I can't imagine doing this while pregnant with or without morning sickness! But others I'm consumed. My good friend at work is pregnant and due in August and I'm jealous... my other friend from work is in the process of quitting smoking so that they can start trying - probably next month. The friend who's about to

I have wanted another child for the last 3.5 years. To the point where it was painful for me. I was so patiently waiting for DH to get on board for baby #2. It was especially painful when he would go from "WHEN we have another" to "IF we have another." We'd always talked about having more than one child, and it was hard to figure out if this would be a deal-breaker for me. It took a "come to Jesus" talk with him for the light bulb to go off and for him to finally realize how much having another child means to me.

So I've always had babies on the brain... and now is no different. Although it feels more intense and more exciting, knowing that it's no longer "some day" in my mind but "in six months." IIIEEE! I've been thinking a lot more about my health, finances, work, etc. in terms of having another baby. I'd thought it all out before, but in a vague way since I didn't have a specific WHEN it would be happening... now I'm thinking more concrete.

I'm no where near there. We just had DD1 three months ago, so when I think of another baby I just think of it in relation to her. Like, "oh, I'm sure she'll love being a big sister!" or when she outgrows clothes, "I can't wait to put this on our next daughter!".

I'm emotionally satisfied with what I have at the moment, if that's what you're asking. Not that I don't understand you spot!! Oh, I DO!! When we were TTC #1 it literally absorbed my brain day & night. Whew. So happy she's here napping beside me. Thinking about those days makes we want to wake her up and cuddle her!

I just like to plan TTC #2 and dream. I'm in the "dream and enjoy" stage because I have two years to be on this board.

When I was planning to get pregnant the first time, it was all consuming. I read everything, charted, etc. I liked to be doing things to help move me forward. Now, I am anxious to get to TTCing but I also have so much on the go now that I don't have the time to let it consume me. In my quieter moments, I wish for a baby tho.

Hi Laura,

Your boys are adorable!

I can honestly say right now TTC #4 is very far from my mind. I do have weeks where it totally consumes me but not this week! I am finding 2 teenage girls to be more work than I expected. I just came back from Vegas for a soccer tournament with my oldest and we travel at least once a month. Not to mention never ending practices and the stage she is in right now is I am annoying and not fun to be around. My youngest DD, 14 yo, needs a close eye on her 24/7 and if we slack just a bit she takes full advantage of that.

I do keep in mind this will

That's the million dollar question, isn't it Laura? I have 3 kids too, though mine are more spaced out (12, 8 & 5) & I am just aching

When we first were WTT, I was totally consumed with all things baby/pg/etc.
