    Default I hate the internal conflict!

    I LOOOVE being pregnant. If I could forever be 28 weeks pregnant I would. DH and I love babies and children and are hoping to have around 4. That being said, we are in no position to be ttc right now. We both lost our jobs back in July and had to move in with my dad. We rented out our house to cover the mortgage. We are working on getting new jobs so that we can move back into our house in the fall when the lease is up. I know that getting pregnant now would not be good just bc of our situation. I def need a job with benefits and a steady income before we think about #2. But that doesn't stop the fever!! I drool over the BFPs and first appts and announcements, etc. I know in my head that we absolutely can't risk it right now (even though it took us 27 months and 6 IUIs to get DS). Even DH is talkin about another baby and points out tiny babies when we are at the store or wherever.

    Anyone else struggling?? Anyone else longing but waiting?? I'm really looking forward to getting a new job and moving back into our house so that we can think about TTC again! I hope everything falls nicely into place so that we don't have to wait YEARS!

    I wish you were in a better situation! That must be so frustrating. Do either of you have good job prospects at this point?

    (BTW, I totally know what you mean about wanting to be forever 28 weeks pregnant... I'd do that, too.)

    I know what you mean. I hope you get a good prospect soon. I am sure things will work out soon for you and hopefully they will be even better than before.

    I am in a different (but similar) situation! I would give ANYTHING to TTC right now, but I am in school for another year and DH does not make enough to support me and a baby. We are hoping to buy a home so we can get set up and can be ready to go once I am done my program, but who knows when that will happen. I have had baby fever for the past 5 years solid, so I do know how you feel. I figure that when it is the right time, it will just happen, so enjoy your DS and you will get your others soon!

    I'm not in baby fever mode at the moment, but i've been there! it's rough, especially with your situation. I hope everything falls into place sooner rather than later!

    Thanks ladies for all your support. DH and I both have a couple job prospects that we are hoping will pan out. I'm excited to see what's in store for our future, I just hope that it happens soon! Thanks for understanding how I feel! But I'm sorry that some of you are feeling the same way!

    Hope the jobs come through for you both! I know how you feel. DH and I were only working freelance and I was just part time for most of last year and it is a big reason we decided to wait. Things will work out financially sooner or later and if you are both committed to wanting another, I'm sure it will happen.

    Thanks girl! This made me happy. I got a call for a job interview today... just praying that it will be enough to provide for our family. We also think we figured out a way last night that DH can get his degree in about a year instead of 2.5 and then he will have a job that will give us enough for me to stay home That is my ULTIMATE goal and dream

    That sounds fantastic, Caity! I really hope it works out for you. Do you mind me asking what he's studying (no pressure to answer)?
