My husband and I decided last summer to try for a baby starting in May of this year. Last summer, the wait didn't seem so extreme. Now, I'm SO close to stopping birth control, but it feels like time is passing so slowly. I keep dreaming that I'm pregnant, and once I woke up with my hand on my belly after dreaming that I was rubbing a pregnant belly. The funny thing is, I've never had much of a desire to be pregnant. Even now, if my husband was ok with adopting, I'd do that instead. I just want a baby.
I am tired of waiting, but I'm so close to the month we will try. We are waiting for money reasons. Our only debt after May will be my student loans, which are relatively small, and the mortgage payment. I'm excited to pay off my car in two and a half years instead of five. I'm keeping busy by doing everything I can do now. I take prenatal vitamins, read everything I can, and am learning all I can about temping. I'm also using Friends as a distraction. Not my friends as in people, but the tv show, "Friends." My real life friends help too, but that tv show is my happy place.
How are the rest of you handling waiting?
Are you doing anything now to prepare for the time you try to conceive? Assuming most people plan to try, which I know isn't always the case.
