My DH and I are about to be married for a year in July. We have discussed our current jobs and financial situation as well as taken into consideration the amount of time that my husband wants us to be "just the two of us," and have decided that we will start TTC in May 2013. But... what the heck do I do in the meantime???
We can't afford to get pregnant with a baby right now so that's not an option. (1) We have to wait until October when I can adjust my health insurance policy to a more multi-doctor visits/pre-natal friendly plan and (2) we are currently anxiously awaiting the possibility of a new job for my DH (more money, more stability, more security - all good things). I have to also respect my husband's desire for time just the two of us as I recognize how important it is for us and especially to him.
But... I'm on here, reading and relating to stories and trying to become a part of this community... looking at baby stuff and creating wish lists... going through the baby clothes that I have already bought and gotten as hand-me-downs... Reading What to Expect Before You're Expecting and all kinds of other baby-related information...
Are there other bumpies that are in my same boat? I'm excited that our trying schedule has been established but it's not like I get to share that in conversation when other women talk about getting pregnant or babies... If anyone else has scheduled out into the future when they are going to TTC, it would be great if we can be in touch... and hopefully share in each other's happiness at the future's positive pregnancy tests.
