US Air Force Family! :loveUSA:
The following is a post I made in an online journal elsewhere, and then thanks to Amy (AFrenzFan) I realized I can just start my own TTC journal here! So my first post is a copy and paste from somewhere else, but here goes!
I never thought I'd say this, but I WANT MY PERIOD!!!! :angry2: LOL, I know that sounds crazy, but I cannot wait for my cycles to get regular so I can start TTC with my darling husband! It seems like when you really want something, it takes forever to get to you. But I think I can try to be patient. I guess I don't have a choice anyway, do I? :?
I have registered on pregnancy.org, and now that we are going to be actively TTC, I have started posting too. There's a user called AFrenzFan, and I really enjoyed her pregnancy journals! She ended up having a very difficult C-Section birth, though. But anyway, she had a beautiful little girl named Natalia Jolie. So it was all worth it. :pinkelephant: I want to start to PM her occassionally, so I can keep in touch with her. For some reason, I really identify with her. I think it's because she is a young mom and she seems to have a really good relationship with her husband.
I have also decided to get more involved in the community to start meeting more people. I have a core group of friends, but I think it'll start to stagnate now that I'm not working, and am not meeting new people. I signed up for an online yahoo group of military wives on Mountain Home AFB! It seems pretty cool, but you have to be authorized to gain membership, and I haven't yet gotten an authorization. Hopefully the moderator hasn't abandoned ship! :aak: The group seems to be posting messages though, so it should be active. Who knows what's going on with that? :dontknow:
But besides that, I have decided to become more active in my church. I think I am going to start going to a women's bible study at night. I called the lady who's in charge of it and left her a message. I am also going to start volunteering on base, preferably at the Gunfighter's Attic a few times a week, and then once a week when I am in school. I think that'll be a good way to meet other wives too.
I watched this really cool video on pbs.org called Life's Greatest Miracle. It was so fascinating to see how a baby is made! They actually had photographs of the egg and the sperm, and the inside of the uterus and everything. And at the end, it showed how a woman gave birth vaginally. That was kind of scary, but also really cool! It didn't look nearly as terrifying as I thought it might. The woman also had a natural birth, so she was screaming and that made it sadder. But all in all, a very good series of videos. I recommend that to anyone who is TTC for the first time!
Well, I better go blowdry my hair now! See ya later!
