@livhefnerphoto: I have three fur babies, but kitty fur babies, lol. One of them has been snuggling with me all night, which is kinda strange because he’s such a Daddy’s kitty, lol. He only likes me when his Dad isn’t around.

@JewishBride – Ha! No, math and science seem to activate a “shut off switch” in my brain. I guess there are quite a few perks to being an engineer’s wife though πŸ™‚ 

 

@callirome – Aww, cats have never seemed to like me, but they are so adorable. Henry plays favorites with whoever is eating at the time.

@JewishBride- I completely understand your fear. I have a lot of problems with my periods, etc. I think I might have Endometrosis, but I cant get it confirmed due to no insurance. But if it goes untreated it causes scarring which leads to no kids. Having kids is so important to me. Its soo scary to think something might be wrong. Just be strong and stay positive.

This is the best thread ever. I feel like I can finally identify and connect with some bees. I’ve always felt I dont really fit in here, but this is great. I identify with a lot of you. I want to be a stay at home wife then mom some day. FI’s job will require him to be gone like 2 weeks at a time then home for 2. I want to be able to spend those 2 weeks with him.

@Misfit- I think there is nothing wrong with you trying to have a baby. I go through cycles, probably when im ovulating. lol. Somedays I beg Fiance to have a baby. lol then others, like today when i babysat, its like NOOO!!!! I love my freedom now.

@Joeydoodle: If I couldn’t have kids I would feel miserable. I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom if we could afford it. Eventually I would go the adoption route but I think I would need some time to process the whole “you cant get pregnant thing.” I am on birth control and I have heard it takes a while for your body to adjust again but it should be fine.

@callirome: Yeah, you are right, we would spend a while together just to get used to it.

@livhefnerphoto: same here! My mind goes completely blank when he starts talking about some experiment. I agree, there are many perks of being married to an engineer! It’s all worth it:)

@Joeydoodle: Thank you for the support:) My entire family has irregular cycles and I’m no exception. It’s so hard hearing about women that get pregnant so quickly when we’ve been trying longer. I agree with you on the adoption route. We would do everything we possibly could (iui, clomid, ivf) and if that didn’t work we would adopt:)

@truitjen:I know what you mean. I wish I had regular cycles, I would probably be pregnant right now! I understand the no insurance problem! I have a gigantic deductable I have to meet and so I don’t want to go just to have the dr. tell me to come back in 6 months and charge me a couple hundred dollars. I know I have no room to talk, but please see the doctor. If you do have a problem you still have time to fix it and miss out on the heart break of infertility. I guess we should both tell ourselves that a baby is priceless and is worth the $ we’ll spend in the dr’s office. I’m going to take my own advice:)

@Misfit:Yay! Fellow ttcer! How long have you been trying? I feel the same way as you, I’ve only told a close friend and the Hive I’m ttc. I wish I could talk to my mother about the frustration, but I know she would tell me I’m stupid and too young. It’s hard because I go to her for almost everything! Loads of baby dust to you!

I’m so happy that I can finally relate to someone on here! I think we should have our own section:)

Okay, well, I’m 19 currently, and my boyfriend is 27. When we get married I’ll be 21 and he’ll be 29. I go to the University of Utah currently, but soon I’ll be transferring to the University of Washington to finish my BA in Psychology. Then I’m getting a Masters in School Counseling. My boyfriend is training to be a police officer. I currently work a minimum wage food service job full time to support myself, and I can’t wait to be done with school so I can have a more fulfilling and better paying job. I’m almost more excited for this than getting married ;). Ahh, as far as interests, I like knitting and crafting in general, and I watch a lot of crime shows.

That’s about it!

@miksje130Birthcontrol can do crazy things when you stop taking it. I was on the shot, and when i stopped taking it, i didnt have a period for a year. needless to say, i do not that the shot anymore. So deff keep in mind how it might affect you.

@JewishBrideI want to go so badly. It affects my life so much. But i can not find anyone who will even look at me without having insurace. Fiance graduate from college by the end of this year, so i will deff go as soon as he gets a job.

@truitjen: Will Planned Parenthood check out something like that? They may not do fertility treatments or anything, but it seems like they’re all about reproductive health in general, and they’ll give you free or discounted services.. It’s worth a shot!

Hi girls! I’m a bit late to this thread but I’d love to introduce myself. I’ve read through all of this and you all sound adorable.

I’m 21 (so at the end of your spectrum) and my future-FI is also 21. I’m two weeks older than him and love to remind him of it ;). He is my future-FI because although he hasn’t “officially” popped the question, we refer to eachother as fiance/e. He has told me that he is waiting until he can afford the ring I “deserve”. Can’t argue with that!

We met while attending college together. We’re both not really into college, mostly because we both feel that it is ridiculous that a bachelor’s degree is the new high school diploma. I am attending college although I despise it because I actually do enjoy learning – just hate the institution.

We have a 14-month old daughter together. She is the best thing that has ever happened to either of us. We were not expecting her at all. I became pregnant right after our freshman year of college and I wouldn’t change a thing. To all of you who want a child – good luck ttc, now or after getting married. If it doesn’t happen right away you can still enjoy the time alone as a couple. I wish we had more alone time but being with our daughter always puts a smile on my face.

We’re both unemployed right now but not by choice. I was working at a baby store which was wonderful for my studies and the sweet discount, but I had to leave after my mother was killed by a drunk driver last June. I just couldn’t handle having a new baby, losing my mother and having to find our own place along with working. My Fiance actually is waiting to hear back from a job so wish us luck!

It’s nice finally introducing myself and getting to know some lovely ladies who are a bit like me! Maybe now I won’t be as much of a lurker…. on some boards at least. haha

Fiance and I are both 20. We’ve known each other since we were 12, we’ve been together since we were 17 (no breakups). I’ve been living outside my parent’s home since I was 15 – internships, travel, apartments, etc. so this is not like I’m a young, innocent girl that doesn’t know what she’s getting into… as everyone I meet seems to think.

I’ve also gotten the “Oh, are you pregnant?” comments, which make me want to punch people (including my future father-in-law). I just can’t believe people would be so rude, especially when we’ve been talking about getting married for two years. It’s not like this is a sudden shock.

Regardless, I think the best way to prove them all wrong is just letting them watch our happy relationship grow. πŸ™‚

@JewishBride: FI and I have been trying for just under a year. It’s so freakin’ hard!! UGH!  In the beginning I told my mother and my dad knows I want a family. None of my friends know; only the hive. They’re more supportive and more likely to give you a big kick up the butt when you’re being stupid. I see the Hive as, like, the ultimate big sister. πŸ˜›
