It's far from being "official" but I thought I would let you guys know that DH and I had a really really good talk last night and my WTT date has been set as "definitely some time before the end of this year." It might even be late July/August!! I was so excited last night (out of DH's sight though--didn't want to scare him) that I thought I would explode.

It's weird how all of this came about--we were at the funeral home for a man whom I've always considered as a 3rd grandfather and a friend's 2 year old son ran towards the door and DH didn't know if the mom saw that and DH ran and picked him up before the little boy was able to make his escape. Seeing that kid in my DH's arms made me melt. When we left I wasn't even really thinking and I thanked him for catching the little boy and I just told him my heart leaped when I saw him holding him. Neither of us really said anything else until we got home and I was fixing dinner and he just started talking about having kids. He said he wanted us to wait until later this year, but by the end of fall he thought we should try. I asked why we had to wait so long and why couldn't it be July/Aug since we have no guarantee how quickly I might get pg. He said that he wouldn't rule out July/Aug but that he made no promises. He then admitted his biggest obstacle was FEAR! When I admitted that was mine, too, I think it made him feel better.

Anyway, I think DH and I are finally getting on the same page as far as WTT is concerned. Hopefully I will soon be able to post a WTT date next to roll call and believe it to be true.

That's wonderful progress! You must feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders! That is so touching about your dh and the 2 year old boy...Cute! Soon enough he'll be holding his own child ;) I hope you get a concrete WTT date soon, and congrats!

That is just FANTASTIC! Your little story made me get goosebumps. I know exactly how it feels when your DH FINALLY realizes that TTC may not be such a bad idea.

Hopefully your TTC date will be sooner than later!!

Oh my gosh Sarah--you just totally freaked me out! If things go well I really could be pregnant this time next year. I've struggled so long to get DH to consider TTC that I've never given any real thought to what happens when he says let's go for it. Oh man--I can feel baby fever coming on. I've worked so hard the last two years at distancing myself from babies and pregnancies in case it didn't happen and now I feel guilty for thinking about our future baby. But, I know I have to think about it sometime because there is so much I need to do before I even get pregnant so that this baby has the healthiest start in life that I can give it. This must be what the onset of an anxiety attack feels like--LOL.

DEAL!! I just can't believe how close August is because it still feels so far away. I chose August because we're headed to two Metallica shows in early July and I want to give my body time to recover from the mosh-pit and whatever fumes are hanging overhead at the shows.

It took me two weeks to return to normal after the last Metallica concert. But, I've been lifting weights to help tone my body, so these freaks aren't going to push me around like they did the last time--ha ha.
