booktea92:  We’ve been trying for about a year, and I feel like a crazy person because it is the only thing I can ever think about. Unfortunately that’s pretty normal. I try to distract myself – hanging out with friends, exercise classes, reading novels – but it’s really hard. I stopped going on Facebook a few months ago so at least it’s not a constant reminder of everyone else’s pregnancy. That has helped somewhat.

We aren’t TTC yet..we actually just moved our date to December instead of this month. However, we set our original TTC date a year ago and it has consumed me for the last year! Now that we’ve moved it, the thoughts are more manageable, as we are focusing on paying off debt between now and December!

I thought I was crazy because it is literally all I think about! My SIL is pregnant with her second and I go baby crazy! I try to lay off the “symptom spotting” but my husband and I talk so much about babies, I just can’t help it!

I am in that boat with you. I didn’t want a baby at first (2 teenagers) but now that I am onboard I am constantly reading these boards and symptom spotting like a mad woman. I am almost getting on my own nerves with it, so I am looking for other outlets for my interests. So far, it’s not working. Haha

booktea92:  I feel like that’s all I think about as well. My DH and I have been TTC only for a couple of months, but I’m feeling discouraged already because first off it seems like everyone around me is becoming pregnant but me. One of my x best friends from school is just over 3 months, my BILs gf is about 4 months, and I just found out a couple of weeks ago my SIL is pregnant like 6 weeks.

I’m 27 and thought by now I would have 2 kids and be done, but that’s just not how it worked out. I’ve always wanted kids since I was 18 and my DH and I wanted us to have stable incomes, our own house, and to be married first which we have done all of these as of June 2014, which is when we got married(Bought our house in 2013)We had planned on TTC on the honeymoon then we changed our minds right before the wedding so we could have 1 year of being newly weds.(Even though we had been together almost 9 years by the time we got married) I’ve been off my BC for 3 months now and I wish I would have stopped them sooner because I didn’t realize how long it could take me to get pregnant. I was on BC for 9.5 years, which I know is a very long time.

Of course all of our family, friends, and co-workers know we are trying so that’s always the first thing they ask, which is upsetting to have to tell them not yet. DH and I went to a family reunion for my side this past weekend and my grampndma came up to me and said “hey I heard I’m going to be a great grandma again” and at first I just sat there for a second then realized she was talking about my SIL so I said “yeah” then she said “well what’s wrong with you” and that really hurt me. I know she doesn’t think before she speaks a lot and she realized once I said “well it isn’t my fault” and the look I had on my face, that she shouldn’t have said it that way and that I took offense to it. I could tell she kind of felt bad.

I know my time will come I just hate the waiting game. Sorry it’s so long I just had to vent!

booktea92:  I’m sorry you’re going through this. πŸ™ I hope it comes back you are pregnant! πŸ™‚ My cousin had a MC the end of June and I felt so incredibly sad for her. I can’t even imagine what she went through, but her and her Fiance are gonna start trying again the end of September so we’re hoping we can both get pregnant around the same time so we can go through it together! 

My DH and I want 2. 1 boy and 1 girl. Twins run on my DH side and I guess it’s his generation to have them. If I’m meant to have twins I hope it’s the 2nd time around because for my first time I just want to enjoy 1 baby. So if we do have twins then we’d like 2 boys and 1 girl or 2 girls and 1 boy. I have some names picked out, but DH and I haven’t discussed them together yet. I want to wait until we’re pregnant and a few months in.

How many children do you and your DH want to have? How boys and how many girls? Do you have names picked out?

booktea92:  I just ovulated this weekend so I’m in the TWW. I was sort of symptom spotting last month (our first month TTC). I hope things worked out this time!

booktea92:  Thats crazy twins run in both sides. Lol You definitly have a really good chance of having twins then. I really like the names you have picked out. I don’t think I want to share my names just yet. Maybe once I become pregnant I will. I don’t want to jinx it. Lol I’ve been looking at baby names forever. It’s funny how I changed my what I like over the years. I’m really excited about the names I have picked out now. πŸ™‚ I guess I’m waiting too because I don’t want to pick the same name as the 4 people I know that are pregnant. I want a name I think is unique and I don’t want anyone in my family or friends to have the same name.
