Hello, all. I'm not new to JM (though I've been AWOL for a while...), but wanted to introduce myself here along w/ a little bit about why we've decided to WTTC. I'm a young (newly married!) U.S. Army reservist and photography student married to an active duty Army soldier (currently in Basic Training). In December 2010, we discovered we were expecting a (very unplanned) baby. One bad sign followed another, though and I experienced a missed miscarriage and had to have a D&C about three weeks ago (one week after DH left for Basic Training) at 17w2d.

As I guess is usual after a loss, I felt extremely confused and wanted terribly to TTC again, even though we had originally been planning to wait for a more stable period in our lives (being due around the same time as a major move & while I'm still in college isn't exactly ideal). After getting a couple (far too short) phone calls from DH and talking to him about it, we've decided to wait at least until August 2012 to TTC. We'll be moving in August of this year, then settling at a new duty station, planning for our wedding (we're legally married, but haven't had a ceremony yet), having the wedding, etc. and don't want to be TTC/expecting on top of all of that!

I really, really want to be a mom and am a little scared about waiting (what if we lose again, after waiting and a year and a half of waiting turns into five years or more?), but I know deep down that its the best thing for us, and for our future baby. Plus, it wouldn't hurt for both of us to get a promotion or two (I'm a PFC, he's a PV2) and to have a better income before bringing another member into the family.

Welcome, I'm Katie.
I'm very sorry for your loss, I know what its like to have a missed miscarriage of an unplanned pregnancy. Mine was back in 2008. Its perfectly natural to want to TTC right away, I know I've wanted to ever since.
I hope you stay around, we love having new members.

Thank you, everyone. :-)

Sorry it has taken me so long to pop up around here again. Between spotty internet and being in the USAR, I haven't had a chance to stop by. I hope to get to know you all as well, and hopefully will start to be able to stop by more frequently.
