So husband and I are ready to start trying again but started with a VERY relaxed approach. Meaning no OPKs and No temping, but we do want it to happen. This will probably only last like a month maybe two lol.
We have been taking a break since Feb. Not very long I know but we wanted to think things through a little. It's a pretty good and bad time. Bad because we are living overseas (He's in the Army Active Duty) but good because we are in a place in our life where we can afford for me to stay home and take care of an infant. (He's not going to be a career soldier) I'm about to finish my teaching certification and have oppourtunites to teach online home schooling. Otherwise I know people here who do home daycare really well; I could keep my part time job at the school if need be. But that's way into the future, we aren't even pregnant yet!
We have been trying since august of last year. Had a chemical in January, tried again in Feb. Decided to go on birth control when Feb. AF came. That was horrible, my hormones were all over the place and I was bleeding a lot! Then AF came early this month. So I'm not expecting a BFP this month or for a couple of months because of the BC but we shall see!
We've worked out a plan for the next couple of years. As much as we can plan with the Army and life that is. But it's very doable and we are talking about kids all the time! I don't think we can go back off this road. We're kinda at the point where we always notice cute kids everywhere.
Just wanted to give everyone an update and say hi to all the new people who may not know me.
Just wanted to pop in and say my parents were overseas when they conceived and had both me and my brother five years later. My father was also active duty military. I feel like I had a very comfortable childhood. Also, most of my friends today (I met as an adult) did not have a stay at home mom, and I am very grateful that I did! I think your situation is very ideal, but I am biased haha! Good luck and lots of baby Dust to you :-)
