I am starting this journal to keep my emotions and thoughts in one place. I've been reading a few of the other journals and wanted to start my own.
For anyone who wants to know about me and my DH here is a little about us.
I am 24 years old and my name is Brittany. DH's name is Anthony and he is 23 years old. We have been together for 8.5 years and married for almost 3 years. We got married June 6th, 2009 (it is also DH's birthday). We haven't started trying yet but will start June 1st to try to conceive our first child. We are going on a little weekend vacation to TN the first weekend of June and will start trying then. I'm anxious, excited, nervous, happy, etc. I feel a lot of different emotions. It's going to be kind of weird doing the BD without protection for the first time. We are excited to start trying as my husband has wanted a child for a couple of years but I just wasn't ready. I feel ready now (as ready as I'll ever be) and am excited to start this new journey with my husband.
Well I woke up to bad news this morning. He was at the first station after work (he words 3rd shift) and he tells me they called to let him know that he was no longer employed and that he lost his job. They said they fired 4 or 5 people because of low production on certain lines (he worked a temp for Sherwin Williams).
I'm not employed. So now we got two more weeks of checks and that's it. He's got to find a job and fast. We are both devastated over this. We both have the same response though. We both believe everything happens for a reason and that there is something better about to happen. But right now it's got us both down.
Now my husband was on unemployment for quite awhile before this job because he got laid off from a teaching job at an elementary school. We went to talk to unemployment today and it seems as though he has exhausted all his benefits and wasn't employed long enough to start a new claim.
I really hope something great happens and that he gets a job soon. He still wants a baby but I'm thinking it's just not possible without a job. We are both trying to keep our heads up but there is not much time to find a job.
Well....we did the BD yesterday for the first time TTC. Now all I can think about is did it work (which I guess is the normal response). I misjudged my ovulation cycle by saying it would be the first day of June but at least I can always feel when I ovulate. There is no point about worrying about it but it's all I am doing. The next two weeks will feel very long.
Well..the first month didn't work. Now waiting to ovulate so we can try it again.
Things are still pretty shaky. Still no job for DH. We don't get unemployment. He goes for the second round of "interviews" on Tuesday for a job. I really hope things go right with this job because this job would be great for us! Praying and hoping for it to go well.
Also, we went to the doctor on Wed. because DH's should has been bothering for several months. They took a x-ray and called back with the results on Friday. He has bone deterioration in his shoulder and the two bones connecting are rubbing together. We are supposed to get a call on Monday from an orthopedic doctor to schedule an appointment and get an MRI.
So stressed over everything that is happening now, and the lack of money is not helping anything! Praying for a better week then this one was!
