So our wedding is 11 weeks away! We cannot wait for this day to come. FI and I have decided to TTC straight away so our first month trying will be in October. For some strange reason I am more excited about TTC than anything else!! We have known each other for 9 years, been dating for 7 years and have been engaged for 3 years. FI was saying that he will feel relieved after our wedding because he said it feels like we are waiting to start our lives together. I thought that was so sweet 🙂
I am so excited about starting a family.. The time just feels so right. We bought a 3 bedroom house a couple of years ago but are thinking about selling and looking for a 4 bedroom home in a better suburb. We will start to look seriously after the wedding.. We really want somewhere that we can really settle and stay for a long time. We both work full time and have permanent positions. That was really important for me because of the benefits I am able to receive. We also organised private health insurance with pregnancy benefits available to us from May 2015.
Is is it weird that I am more excited about TTC than the wedding? Don’t get me wrong, I am looking forward to our wedding.. It will be simply beautiful. All of our plans will all fall into place on that perfect day.
But there is just something about creating a little person together that is so much more amazing 😀

kfiorita: Good luck and have fun! At the time, my wedding was more fun, but that’s because we didn’t choose to TTC right away. However, now that my son is here, having a baby is way more fun than a wedding. Best thing I’ve done in my life so far is give birth to my son. He’s perfect to us.

I think it makes perfect sense that you’re excited about the next chapter of life! A wedding is fun, sure, but it’s only ONE day. I think it shows great maturity and wisdom that you are excited for the actual LIFE that follows the wedding. Congrats on all these great changes happening in your world soon!

I can relate… we were so excited to TTC that we got ahead of ourselves and ended up pregnant 8 months before the wedding (which we post poned) lol.
Your feeling are totally normal! This is such an exciting time 🙂 you are looking forward to all that your life together is going to involve!
