babymaker88 i totally understand where you are coming from. DH and I are both university graduates and I have a masters degree but other people have always seemed better off than us. when DD was born we were up to our eyeballs in debt, and only halfway through renovating a house which had not been fit to live in when we started. However, everything we have now we have worked our butts off for and it's taken several years but it does pay off in the long term. we just didn't have the short term pleasure of getting what we wanted at the beginning. fwiw i think those of us who work for what we have appreciate it more and actually have more in the long term. people looked down their noses at us when we bought our first house because it was so terrible, but by renovating it ourselves and having that time, we were able to pay off some of our debts, and now it is rented out to someone else and we now own a house in which our first home could fit into the top mezzanine floor! so I wouldn't let it get to me too much if I were you
btw DH and I are 30 and we bought that first house only 5 years ago...just keep pressing on and you will get there

Now we want to start a family and trying to do it the right way but that means finding the middle ground between not waiting forever but still waiting til we are truly ready. Gaaaargh I'm sick of over thinking...

Wow jussi you've really made me feel like it's achievable! I was just sick of others getting everything they want and having no set backs! We're getting there but I just feel occasionally like we should be buying house before falling not while pregnant just to have a few more months up our sleeves! Then I think why should we when there's ppl out there who are no where near as stable as us and plan kids! I need to stop thinking so far ahead lol
Now just to let things happen!

Honestly you never get anywhere good without some hard yakka. In any case, if 'those' ppl get everything they want and so easily they may lose appreciation for things and become complacent and heaven forbid if something doesn't quite go there way or they are struck with adversity, their resilience might not nearly be as good as yours! It's hard to be positive at times like this, but sometimes I think it's better to go through tougher times!! It def has made me more compassionate and willing to lend a hand to others. Renovating our old house tested my nerves!
Speaking of that house, we had our first home open yesterday eeek so it's now just a waiting game until it hopefully sells soon
Farting, hahah I am a 'bad influence' on my gf's....my bff said she cant fart in front of her now DH. This was years ago...so I said, what he wants you to get bowel cancer and stomach cramps. Just do it, it'll be fine. So she did, and all is good now hahah. DH doesn't like it when I do, but doesn't really complain. I sometimes think my DH has irritable bowel syndrome because he does it so often LOL. I blame it on the 'army' man in him. No idea what fart tennis is LOL.
Had some really sad news just now...Mother-in-law told DH that his brother and SIL had a miscarriage the other day and just had to have a d&c...she was 11 weeks. So, so sad I'm not going to contact her just yet because I don't know if MIL was supposed to tell us or not. So will wait a couple of weeks and then contact her if she hasn't told us by then. It's heartbreaking!
Have my ultrasound to see if I have PCOS tomorrow afternoon. Quite nervy.

Hope that's so sad bout your family :-( good decision to wait it out, but will be good for her that you can be there for her when the times right xx
What makes you think you have pcos?

It is sad hey MrsT I knew she was having issues because MIL said she has PCOS and was having clomid...poor thing! I just said to DH, they probably wanted to share their BFP at Christmas. So sad it didn't work out that way
I think I may because my sister has it and my mum had troubles conceiving so I think she had undiagnosed PCOS...my periods were pretty regular before I went on BC last year...so hoping that means I don't. I did have blood tests 2 years ago and they came back as not having it. But I guess you can never be 100% until they look at your ovaries. I just want to know good and proper if I do/don't have it. As my new GP said (who asked if I wanted the ultrasound), it's better to know now and do something to prepare, than not know and waste time TTC with no BFPs. Honestly, he impressed me so much in that 20 minute appt, than any GP I've ever had in my adult life.

Well that's a good thing; get it out of the way, know one way or the other. Like you say it will save time worrying if nothing else.
I always consider the possibility that one of us has problems but guess we will be taking the wait n see approach on that one lol.
