Thread: The TTC Waiting Game

I've had to wait 3 years to TTC. It sucks, but what can you do? You need your cards to be reasonably in order first. At least November isn't too far away! I also read this yesterday: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/...a-baby/309374/ which should put most people's minds at ease.

Ah! Great article. Thank you! I go through moments of freaking out that I'm putting it off too long. We plan to start TTC when I turn 33 (2015) and sometimes I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack about it and we should just have a baby right now, this second, and to hell with our life plans. I'll bookmark that article and read it in those moments of "must make baby now!".Considering...

So...a little hiccup in the plans...my school just changed around the schedule so I have to take Winter Term off...which means putting off TTC for 3 more months! **grumble**
It feels like every time it gets close, we hit another obstacle. Good news, though, I finally have health insurance with my job again! Just wanted to vent, sorry for resurrecting this thread again.Baby Sequoia Orion coming any day now!Other favorites: Cytheria, Arcadia, Seraphina, Caspian, Gideon

Sending hugs your way!
But to answer your question: before we decided to TTC it was hard, and I was miserable. I would go into an automatic depression state when I saw my friends getting pregnant, or having children. But I am a strong believer to get all your ducks in a row. Finish school focus on that, keep in your mind set that you are doing this to provide your child with nothing but the best. It is okay you are 28, there is no rush. This happens to be your life path. And it is not like you are sitting around doing nothing, you are furthering your education which is an awesome success. During this 6 month wait you can start prepare for a child, start putting aside money if you can, or even do some research. I look at baby gear all the time just for fun and I love it. I do research to almost prepare myself so I do not feel overwhelmed when we finally conceive. Also use these 6 months as motivation, knowing you are working to start your family! Try not to be sad you have great things to come and I hope everything works out for you! xoxoTTC Baby #1!
