Burtsgirl~ I will have to come check out your thread! I recently started being good (just yesterday).
I am trying really hard and hope to add in some walking soon!
So, I have been in a really rotten place lately (mentally, not physically). I was really hoping to ttc #3 in August of this year, but I don't know if this is going to work out as I had planned!! Many of you know that we are in the process of building a new house. This is a VERY draining process and me and my hubby have been at each others throats lately. He is at the house every day and that goodness because he has caught many things that might have gotten missed.
Anyways, every time we turn around there is an extra cost for something, plus we ended up having to pay out on taxes this year. I am just worried that with the added expenses, plus the new house mortgage which will be $600-$800 more than our prior mortgage he will decide that we can't afford another child. I know that I will have to continue to work and with daycare costs so high, I am sure money would be tight with the house and daycare (my other two are out of daycare).
I haven't brought up the baby topic to him recently as I don't think it's the right time, but I really want to know if we will be able to try this August. I am really hoping to conceive in July/August for a late spring/early summer baby. He had previously said no more kiddos, but early in December he changed his tune and said "maybe" after the house was done and depending on how in debt we were. He did say he had been seriously considering it. Now I am afraid he will change his mind and say absolutely not. Even before we started building... I told him if I had to choose a house or another child, then I would choose the child.
So... I am just venting as I have been feeling a little sad about this. Obviously, now is not the time to talk about this since he's under so much stress with the house. We are hoping that the house will be done in June... so maybe this will give things a bit to cool off and get into a groove.
Thanks for listening!
