I've been lurking on the board for a bit now, but never posted since I wasn't actually TTC yet.
My name is Amanda Marie. I'm 36 and my DH is 40. We married last fall, and if it was up to him, I'd be due any day now (our 9 month anniversary is tomorrow). I told him I wanted a year to get used to/enjoy being married before we started trying to have kids.
Since we were dating we had been talking about going to Spain. Realizing that our Spanish adventure was probably not something we could do with kids, or something I would want to do while pregnant (because, you know, the wine is cheaper than water, and really good), I said I'd move that start date up if we went on our big adventure. So I finished the BC pack I was on during our prebabymoon and are now trying to start our family.
I've already picked up some interesting info from this and other boards, like reading TCOYF. Had a preconception visit at a birth center, mostly to make sure they wouldn't weed me out immediately for being of AMA or overweight. Now I'm just hoping I'm reading my chart right and keeping my fingers crossed like the rest of you.
