WTF for #2
8
Tue, 09-08-2009 - 1:26pm

Hi everyone! My name is Candice (30), and I'm married to a wonderful man, Jeremy (30). We have a DD who is 19 months old. We're a Coast Guard family, and we're living in New Jersey. We're both from New York (classic city girl meets country boy as I'm from NYC and he's from the Catskills). We've been married for 2 years now.

After DD was born (she was unplanned), I was pretty overwhelmed with motherhood and I doubted I would ever have any more children. Boy was I wrong! LOL. Now that DD is older and now that I've learned so much and truly love being a momma, I want a second child badly. I miss holding a baby, their smell, their sounds... And I feel like we're not complete until we have another baby. Does anyone else feel like that?

Because we're a military family, part of our lifestyle includes moving every 3-4 years. They call the move time 'transfer season'. We're transferring in June 2010, so we are on hold to try until minimally February 2010. Because we don't want to split OB care between 2 docs and possibly 2 states, we have to wait until we find out where we're moving before we try. We find out in February where we are going. If we're staying in the area, we can start trying in Feb, but if we're moving, we'll have to wait until we move in June to try.

We tried last month (baby would have been born in May before transfer season), and got a BFN. We were kind of shocked that we didn't conceive because DD was conceived so easily, and we used a fertility monitor, OPKs, and we timed our BDing just right. I trust that there is a reason for everything and that the universe has a plan for us all, and having our second baby just wasn't meant to be at this time.

It's going to be a long 5-8 month wait.

Woops, my auto fill changed my discussion title from WTT to WTF, LOL, two very different meanings! Sorry about that! It should of course be WTT.

Welcome Candice! I'm Becki (23) and my DH is Paul (25). We're waiting until next summer to try for our first, so maybe you'll be TTC with me, but hopefully sooner! :-)

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes :) I'm so happy to join a support group for this difficult time.

Hopeful-- Yes, it is so hard to wait with baby fever.

Molly-- I'll add some pics of DD soon, we're in the process of switching computers so I have to upload some to this new computer. I'd love to create a siggy like some of you have. Anyone know how to do it?

Becki-- Maybe we will be TTC together! Moving can be tough. It's hard to leave the friends you've made. This time will be particularly tough for me because I really love the friends I have here, and DD will also have to leave her friends behind. Thankfully, this area is not far from our hometowns, so we'll be able to KIT with everyone after we leave. We rent right now. We're considering buying when we move next year, but I'm not sure what the housing market will be like then, so we will have to wait and see. We don't want to make a mistake that will cost us lots of money.

Kate-- Maybe we'll be TTC together too!

I think I'll join one of the buddy groups in the Member to Member folder!

Hi Candice, Im new here too and I know how you feel. My ds, Ayden, just turned 3 and it took me till now to want another one. The first year or so was really hard but after that its so much fun! I hope your waiting time goes by fast as well, we are probably going to start trying sometime next year, after I go full time at my job! Good luck with everything and welcome! =)
