The starting point

Hello. My name is Kristen. I know I am only 25 years old and that I am too young for a baby. I know that I have so many years to have a family, what's my rush. I don't have a rush. I am ready for a baby. We are ready to start a family. I know I just got married over a year ago and we should take some time to enjoy each other before we start a family. I know this. I don't care. We have been together for 6 years, we have enjoyed each other for 6 years. I am 25, if I had been ready to have support a baby at 18, I may have had one then! My husband and I chose to wait for a few things to happen. We wanted to be done with college - check. We wanted to have full-time jobs - check. We wanted to be married - check. Rewind to July 24th, 2010 at about 5pm...married and off birth control...trying begins tonight! : ) After all, it was the wedding night, what a perfect day to make a baby! Fast forward to Christmas - same thought, what a perfect time to make a baby....fast forward a year and a half...still no baby. I think we have "waited" long enough. Later you'll get the TMI post about the month after month crap I've been waiting through. Right now, you just need to know that we are relaxed (well we were), we've taken vacations, we've tried every other night, we've tried pee tests, and we are patient most of the time, but being patient most of the time just isn't cutting it. We are sick of waiting, sick of every two week wait, sick of whoops pregnant mommas and second mommas and teenage drama mommas. Right now we are in the wanna-be club and after one more round of peeing on sticks every day, we will be venturing into the scariness of going back to the doctor after almost 2 years of trying to find out whether or not we should give up or keep trekking on the wanna-be momma track. Wish us luck.
