So excited to be able to join this!
Your age/partner’s age: 32/37
Baby #: 1 for me, #3 for him
Sibling age now/ when TTC: 9/12
When will you start TTC: Hopefully in Jan… I’ve been ready but Darling Husband is still slowly coming around to the idea 🙂
Doing anything to prepare (vitamins, charting, etc)?: I’ve been charting for 3 years, we use FAM as our BC method; starting prenatals when my current multivit runs out in about a week
Most excited for: having a child with my husband, since he already has two with his ex wife, it feels important for me to have this with him
Most nervous about: how the blended family aspect complicates having a baby (ie, what his children will say, they’ve already been clear about not wanting a sibling, what drama it might start with their mother, etc)
Anything you want to accomplish before having a baby?: Building a hefty maternity fund since I’m self employed and don’t get paid if I’m not working, and work = travel for me, I’d like to be able to not get on a plane for a few months, but need a good savings for that to happen.
Do you anticipate any trouble conceiving? Hope not, but we’ll see… my OBGYN thinks I may have endo so that is scary to me, she also told me not to wait much longer to start ttc because of my age. Fingers crossed!
