After the sudden realization that I could seriously be a mother the desire inside has grown to unbelievable proportions. I swear, when I see a baby or child all I can think is, “would it be so bad if I just took you home?” and then reality sets back in and I remember, yes, yes it would be. I even look at teens and get excited for when our future children will be that age and all the good and bad times that come along with it. I want more than a baby, I want a CHILD. Well, Mr. Hedgie is super close to an amazing job offer and we were talkin today about it. I said that if he gets the job then that means in two or three months we can start house hunting. He looked at me funny and said “Or.. well, yea house hunting…” Or? Or WHAT? According to him “Or baby”… Which in Hedgie talk means in two or three months we will start trying, for real this time! I really want him to get this job now more than EVER. I am just so excited! I have a real timeline and a really close one too!
How did you react when he agreed that he was ready to start trying? I feel like throwing a party!

Yay! Congratulations!! We haven’t reached that part yet, but I’m sure it’ll be all sorts of happy tears, secrety little wiggle dances when I’m alone, and grinning like a fool 🙂 Feel free to do all of the above, you’re at a very exciting time!!

@Mrs Hedgehog: i TOTALLY felt like throwing a party! the worst part was keeping it in, because we don’t want to tell any people IRL that we’re trying. it’s like having the best secret in the world and not being able to tell anyone! I kind of wanted to wait until January (to have a fall/winter baby) but Darling Husband wants to start..now! I’m part petrified and part ridiculously excited!

@Mrs Hedgehog: Yaaaaaay! I can remember how incredibly excited I was when my baby-phobic Darling Husband first agreed that it was time to start planning for TTC. Such a wonderful feeling to discover that your husband is ready and willing to be a father too.

YAY!! soooo happy for you :):) I hope he gets the job *crosses fingers*
I was super excited when hubby and I decided to TTC, it was kinda his idea though lol and I was quitting my job for personal reasons anyway so he was like well why not, you don’t have to go back to work, you can be a Stay-At-Home Mom 🙂 cuute.
