It feels like something has changed the last few months...DH and I got married just over 2 years ago, and back then babies were for "someday". I guess something in me "snapped" this past fall..maybe it was because our financial situation got better, or because I seem to be constantly surrounded by adorable little ones, or maybe it was just time. I needed to set "the date". We thought maybe a in a year...fall of 2005. Oh man, did *that* ever get the baby fever going! By the time I actually get pregnant, I won't have anything left to read up on! :oops: I've always been a cautious over planner. When we started seriously talking about TTC, DH always looked like he was about to pass out or throw up or something. But now, he just sort of grins, and whispers "Soon, honey...don't worry, SOON!". It's amazing...I still don't quite know what brought the change about.
Our "date" has varied from June to next February...right now it's looking like June! DH is hoping to join the military...right now he is working hard to get in shape. Once that's figured out, it's all systems go!
I took my last birth control pill on March 5, after 4 years straight; I'm really interested to see how my body is going to react. Today was my 2nd day of actually missing pills, I doubt that my body has really caught on yet. I hear that getting off the pill can cause lots of pregnancy type side affects...makes me glad we are using other methods for a few months, otherwise I'd probably being buying HPT's every day! I am taking pre-natal vitamins every day, and am really trying hard to eat better. I hate to cook, and I work evenings, so when I get home at 12:30 am I pretty much want something that will fall into my mouth when I open the cupboard. Tonight I actually ate baby carrots! This required actually opening up a bag (and finding veggie dip, too).
I also started charting this cycle...the anal-retentive type A person in me loves it! I'm still learning the lingo though...I get lost on some of those FF boards.
Wow, this is long...better head off to bed and snuggle up to my sweetie! Just the thought of actually TTC makes me a little randy...somehow I don't think he minds.
