Hi everyone. I’m new to the board and think it is the right place for me. A little background – DH and I are British and live just outside London. We have a wonderful daughter who is eight and a half months old now. We had originally intended to try and have our children close together and when I had Katy I thought for sure we’d be actively TTC #2 by now.
However, DH and I had a frank discussion about it the other night and have decided it’s just not sensible to TTC right now. I’m a SAHM and as a result of the economic downturn, DHs job isn’t as secure as it was. We also can’t afford to move to a bigger house yet which we’d like to do before we have another baby. So...here I am! Part of me is sad about it. I have siblings very close in age to me and I loved that (mostly!) when I was growing up. Also, I’m 29 now and it took us 7 months to conceive Katy so we can’t afford to wait for years and years. But it does make sense to put it off for a little while so that’s what we’re doing.
Hopefully I’ll only be WTT for a year or so...but that should give me more than enough time to get to know everyone!
