This board seems so empty without a TTC thread... so I thought I would start one... a place for those to chat that are TTC or getting close to TTC.

Welcome back Amy. I am so sorry for your losses.

Erica: I'm glad you joined out little family here as well.. Although I must say this thread is not great for baby fever.

Kate, yeah, I think I better only pop in from time to time. I don't want to get too caught up in the baby-making.

Erica- Thanks for the advice. I guess I'm wondering how I"m going to handle two but also David will be at least a year older than he is now. Our earliest due date would be about a year from now. He's such a handful right now and I guess kind of glad why we waited. At first I was a little bummed it would be a bigger age gap than I originally planned but now I think I'm happy about it.

Erica- Thank you. I am in a better place now. The miscarriage in March was really hard on me. But talking to the friend I mentioned in my blog REALLY helped. And because of that when it happened again the next month I didn't try to shut down and shut people out. I really talked about everything with my husband, every time I needed to talk, and it really did help. It showed my I definitely did not go through a loss alone. I feel like my marriage is some how a little easier now. It just feels so natural again. It's a good reminder that I truly did marry my best friend.

It sounds like your husband is a little like mine! He'll say he's done or worry bout the what ifs of having another while you're pregnant and then once the baby is a few months old suddenly pregnancy isn't so scary anymore, and he's more open to if it happens then it happens. I think part of the reason men don't want to try is so they can tell the guys at work how "manly" they are getting their spouse pregnant without even trying LOL! Rob definitely became more "manly" or whatever when he told the guys he worked with we were pregnant and we'd been using birth control lol. I don't know why that is, but I see it a lot with men lol!

Well I got some less than happy news...

I called the college where my registration and it will be at least July before I know anything...and even then, it may not be done :( I definitely feel like I cant get PG until I know for sure about that registration because I dont want to lose my job if I go on mat leave. I hate the unknown.

We are NOT TTC now and 99% not this year, but I just had to say I am jealous! I never ever thought I would have baby fever so soon. Max is almost 10 months old and I am starting to yearn to be PG again. I need to work on weight loss first and be in new job for a bit first. But I hope all of you that are TTC/NPP now get PG quickly and easily!

Hey, Morgan! I know what you mean! I didn't think I would ever have baby fever again, but it's back. I hope the right time comes quickly for you.

Thanks, Erica! I hope the right thing happens for your family. Your kids are so cute! I loved the Easter pictures on your blog. Fletcher's glasses make him look so distinguished!
