I think I'm going to baby wear too, but can't do that in the car! So the transition from car to carrier repeatedly I'm sure will make baby cranky.

Uh oh...you sound so doubtful, Clandestine. Is anyone ever 100% ready and perfect parents? There may be some people out there that claim to be, but I don't think so! Being that you are trying for your baby, I think you will probably be better than most that just "accidentally" get pregnant and a better parent than you think! Definitely well informed, miss smarty-pants

Oh ladies.... This conversation was me a few years ago. It's amazing how well you adapt. I am the "errand" queen! I pop out here and there non stop. My dh and I also love going out and traveling. I was so worried that having a baby meant "sacrificing" all that...but it would be worth it right? I gotta say. Maybe the first or so...yeah it's an adjustment and your sleep deprived and whatnot. But my dd is 2 and I gotta say....yeah we have the occasional moment where my dh ends up walking out of a store with dd screaming...but for the MOST part. Kids aren't that much of a sacrifice. Maybe it's because I'm a busy person but my daughter adjusts to any situation so well! Like last night...we took the train, went downtown and met my friend and her hubby for dinner. We were out until like 10:30 at dinner and my dd was AMAZING! We don't do that very often. I'm actually pretty strict about bed times. But she's so versatile. She'll pop out to the store with me and even helps carry stuff. I love running errands with her. She's great company!!! Maybe it's because she's a girl but I feel like I have a built in best friend anywhere I go!

I totally get your fears and they really are ok to have....but as someone who thought that way...let me assure you. Yes there are bad days or maybe a bad week...but for the most part kids really are awesome and I really don't understand sometimes when I hear parents talk about their kids I think..maybe their just having a bad day because even at her worst when I want to freak...it's just a moment and it passes so quickly!!!!! There is far more good than bad!! I guess if you remember the bad it can seem that way? But I choose to just get through the bad as quick as possible and then forget it ever happened. Hahahahaha.

I think the same thing a lot Clandie. The way I look at it is, I'm never going to be ready really so might as well get started before I get any older.

Mrs. JJ - that's how we ended up where we are now. While being honest with ourselves, admitted there really never was going to be a good time. We're never going to stop our professional lives to have kids, so we may as well just have them and work them into our lives now (while we can hopefully still have our own).

Thanks to Clandestine for the invite to this thread! I am expecting AF tomorrow and will then be able to figure out when in July I'll be testing. Looking forward to waiting it out with you ladies!

Yay! LisK found us! She was on a charting thread with me and one other gal awhile back, the other gal stopped TTC (relationship-related) and I've missed her!

@LisK: your LP looks like it's been getting ever so slightly longer! How have you been?
