OK OK, I guess I've been thinking of TTC for awhile now. Thought I'd jump in here to obsess with others in my situation.
I'm Erin. I'm 30 (ooof, that hurts). DD is 20 months and is awesome. DH (also awesome) and I are both in the middle of our PhDs. I would be pregnant again (or at least TTC) right now if it weren't for stinking grad school. Its not that I'm scared of what having another baby will do to derail our degrees. No, its pregnancy. I had awful awful morning sickness with DD until I was around 23 weeks. I was able to function better with a NB! So, we're waiting until I'm done with my comprehensive exams (like the halfway point) and DH is closer to graduating (he's 1.5 years ahead of me in a program that's usually shorter). That puts us at starting TTC no earlier than December of this year. If its looking like DH won't graduate until later in 2013, we might even push it out to early 2013 but we want our kids to be less than 4 years apart so it'll be go time no matter the circumstances by mid-late 2013. In the meantime, I have an IUD firmly in place.
I didn't get pregnant right away with DD. It took about a year of on again off again TTC. TTC was pretty stressful on us the first time so I plan to JLIH (with some mild glances at the calendar) for at least the first 6 months.
I guess I'm just here to obsess with you ladies until I get my IUD pulled
