Probably out for October (vent)

I was SO excited for January to come. Everything was falling into place to TTC and even DH was getting excited.

Then I went to have my retinas checked at my eye specialist. I was a premie and have the retinas of a 100 year old to thank for it, so I have to have my eyes checked a couple times a year (I skip it when I'm pregnant). I also on occasion have laser "surgery" to keep my retinas "strong".

I went for a semi-anual checkup in November and my doctor told me he wanted to do more laser before Christmas. Then he'd want to check my eyes in a couple of months to see how everything healed and if more was needed at that time. I didn't ask if it was okay to do the check (it's just strong eye drops) because I just don't like doing anything while pregnant that isn't totally necessary and even with just a half dose of the eye drops I can't BF for 8 hours. I was supposed to have the eye "surgery" yesterday so DH took the day off to help with DD. THey called me last minute monday to reschedule and wanted to do it xmas week which does not work at all, so now I don't go in until January 10th. :mad:

I'm a bit disappointed that we may have to wait until spring because the big hitch for TTCing was that we got our new house, which we close on this friday. I try to tell myself it's fine because it will give me more time to settle into the house, we can get a dog sooner and DD will only be about two-and-a-half when we have #2 if we get preggo right away. Still my baby fever is INSANE. DD is such a kid now and every time I see a baby my uterus cries.

I may still linger around for a bit incase things change and to cheer you all on. Thanks for letting me vent!!

Aw I hope your DH changes his mind too! I never wanted to be the obsessive TTC type. I really want to relax and "let things happen" more or less, but it's hard when you want it so bad.

Here's to hoping we'll both get what we want as soon as
