Hi! Good idea for this thread, Emily.
I'm Becky, I'm 31 and will turn 32 in January. My husband is 27. We've been together for 9 years, married for one. For us, it was just about waiting until we were married, and I needed time to really get over my fear of becoming a parent. We were young when we got together, and it took quite a while for my husband to be ready for marriage. He's actually been ready for kids a lot longer than I've been! I went off the pill in May 06 and started charting, but we weren't TTC. We tried for the first cycle in September and I got pregnant! But I miscarried, sadly, and that just finished up last week. So now I'm back to waiting to ovulate.
Even though I'm "only" 31, I worry about my fertility, about being able to maintain a pregnancy, and about having a second child. From charting I know that I have a short LP, and I'm afraid that because we only just started TTC my doctor won't do anything about it until it's been a year. I'm basically a big worrywart!! My mother had 4 kids under the age of 10 when she was my age! Losing my first pregnancy made me realize how bad I really do want kids, and I feel SUCH an urgency to get pregnant again NOW. We're going to wait this cycle out and see if I ovulate and what AF looks like, but I do want to start trying again after that.
