    Default Start to TTC September/October... Anyone?

    Hi Girls, So I have been stalking the forum and now deciding to actually join and start a thread

    Is there anyone that will be trying to concieve towards the end of this year? I am super excited!!

    Me and hubby have been together for 11 years, married almost 2. He is 29 and I am 26...we were very young when we met <3 We have wanted to have a baby for the past few years but tried to what til money of better, and I have just come to the realisation that the money will never be perfect So its the end of this year for the baby! YAY!

    The reason we are waiting is because I have been planning a trip to South America for years and wanted to fulfil it before a baby...I wouldnt want to take a baby up a glacier or quad bike in columbia I have been feeling so damn selfish about this lately , but DH knows what my passion for travelling is like, and says we will be in a better space financially and physically later this year . Do you guys think it is silly to wait and go after the holiday or just start ttc? What is the reason for you girls waiting?

    Anyway enough about me, tell me all about you!

    Yes!!! I'll be TTC again at this time....
    The reason we are waiting now is because DP and I are getting married September 1st so stopping now and trying again after the wedding At least i'll have a buddy in advance!!
    I think waiting is probably the better option as you are so passionate about travelling and as bad as this may sound...you don't want to have regrets when you do fall pregnant or have the "what ifs" or "if i had of" thoughts. I went through the same thing too...I really want to continue getting married in September but if we kept trying then we would have to postpone the wedding and i couldn't bear that thought as much as i want a bubba i know after the wedding we have all the time to try. Don't feel selfish hun because you're not!!

    Nice to meet you Jeremel
    I am super stoked there is someone else looking at the same-ish dates as me! We can both me in suspense together haha
    Thankyou for the kind words of wisdom, I know I shouldnt feel selfish about it, and youre right its the "what ifs" that I dont want. So it feels right to get it over and done with while its easy.
    How exciting you are planning a wedding and baby in the same year I see on your signature you TTC last year? Time is ganna fly this year for you with both things to look forward to. I wish we had of married when we were younger its amazing how being married changes the way you love each other. Definately dont put the wedding off.
    Seems the last few months everyone around me is trying to have a baby or is pregnant, so this is the way I am going to get around it, get my baby fix on bub hub lol

    Yeah same here my friend fell pregnant and wasn't even trying!!! She was so scared to tell me She thought i would be mad and not talk to her. I did however feel cranky and jealous and had to walk off later to have a little cry but i was happy for her and still am. She is due early April so yeah it was pretty cool Also i suppose being on this site sometimes doesn't help when you see others get their BFP and you're really happy for them but then you think "why am i not getting pregnant" or "when's it my turn??" especially after trying for soooooooooooooooo long Still it's awesome to see others who have been trying for ages get theirs mixed emotions i guess but that's what you get when you join forums like these... So when are you travelling??

    Thats totally understandable about being a bit funny towards your friend, its natural I guess when your clucky and your friends have something you so badly want, as long as you are happy for her, no problem. We are hoping to go May overseas, but lately I have been thinking I want a baby more (then I can take the bub with me when it is a little older... unsure, one of our friends takes their toddler overseas, it looks hard but I guess do-able). And yes stalking bubhub is probably not helping the cluckiness haha. Have you done any sort of preconception health plan, or are you planning on doing one? I am going too doctors next week to do full body checkup...hormones and everything checked. Wanna start getting my body ready early, incase I cant wait til September lol.

    Yeah it goes sooooo slow doesn't it?!?! But i guess get used to the wait cause you will have to wait during the dreaded TWW hopefully you only have to do the TWW once!!

    Hi Justwanttobeamummy, looks like I may be TTC same time as you! I was so desperate to travel before a buby, but have now decided to bring the ttc date forward to July, and hopefully take my bub when they are 1 overseas (this may sound naive, but I have spoken to numerous people travelling with babies, and I think it is doable ).

    So this week I am going to get my rubella immunity checked and routine bloods done, hormone profile etc. Have you guys thought about doing that? I am kinda freaking out about the rubella thing, if I am not immune, I am so scared of vaccines- the side effects etc I am sure I recieved the MMR as a kid anyway.

    Jeremel, how is the wedding planning going? I miss the whole wedding wizz bang, i loved planning it so much, the stress was crazy but the excitement was unreal!

    Anyway I am hoping this half of the year flies by and I will have my baby bump
