Its wild how bad baby fever can get. That’s super exciting you only have a few months to go though! I’m so envious.

Right after Darling Husband and I tied the knot both of us had our heads in the clouds and on our wedding weekend said if it happens it happens… now that we’re back to reality (and it didn’t happen) we know that we’re not ready financially for a baby yet and its so disappointing! We probably have at least 6+months until we can even consider trying 🙁

I can’t imagine having a SIL who’s pregnant and looking for company too… what torture 🙂

Just laugh it off and switch the subjects.

Just let them know that you aren’t planning on telling anyone when you are TTC.  They will know when you are about 10-12 weeks along.

Haha–DH’s sister has been hinting that our niece and nephew need friends to play with and we should get on that. Every time i get my nails done, the lady and her husband ask if i have any “news” and if i’m pregnant yet. It’s sort of become a running joke. I just laugh and say “oh, eventually” or something equally vague. x

I think job circumstances really put life on hold for most people. At least for us that was the case–his post-military job barely made 30K/year. He wanted something more in line with engineering (that paid appropriately, lol) and he started last week! I just started researching daycare/nanny costs and in-home daycare around here is about $25-$30 a day. So that’s another circumstance we were concerned about–we had originally thought it’d be $1500-$2000/month and were planning to save appropriately. I’m going off the pill in June around our 2 year anniversary.

There are always circumstances that make having a kid less than ideal but we just couldn’t go forth in good conscience without the details being worked out. Like money, lol. I have told a couple of very close girlfriends (who all know i have endometriosis so it’s not like some big shocker). But as far as family and his friends? Nope. But it’s not really torturous. June will be here before I know it Tongue out

Yes basically. My Dr said DO NOT go off the pill until you are READY. Like, go off the pill, start trying freakin’ immediately. I don’t know my cycle at all so i’m going to have to go with an ovulation monitor of some kind so I don’t ‘waste’ a few months trying to figure out my cycles.

Have you looked into having an au pair? It might be a good option for you since they are at your house  (and more affordable than a nanny-like $200/week). I was just really pleasantly surprised that in-home daycare is so MUCH more affordable here. Seems too good to be true–just something to research a little more when the time comes. I’m excited we have two ladies in our subdivision–one is an asian lady who is a retired kindergarten teacher/child care worker and teachers cantonese to the kids! It’s just nice knowing that instead of planning to have the money up front, it’s a totally feasible amount to subtract from our monthly income.

A little help never hurt anyone =].
