Hi!


Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I wanted to cry when I discovered that Waiting to Try forums were a Thing. I've been suffering alone with no one to talk to about it and I am beyond thrilled to find a group of people in the same boat!

Name: Jessica
Age: 31
Relationship status: Married

How long until TTC:
Hoping to start TTC within the next year.

Reasons for WTT:
Finances. My husband and I are both Type-A planners. We waited 8 years to get married so that the timing would be just right. Now, we've been married a year (and our 10 year dating anniversary is coming up in a few months!) but we're WTT until we're in better shape financially. My husband works as an adjunct professor so there is no job security and the pay is horrendous. He wants a full time job before we try so we have more financial stability.

Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC:
We won't be able to purchase our own home until my student debt is forgiven in 5 years, but we'd like to move into a better apartment/townhome since our current landlord sucks. We'd also like to save a bit more.

How many children would you like: 2

when pg...

Do you have a gender preference?
Not really. I've always wanted a girl, but I work with mostly teen boys and think I do really well with them.

Finding out the gender or team yellow?
Definitely find out the gender!

Any names you like?
Yes, but I'd like to keep them private. I tend to like old-fashioned names and names of book characters. I have tons of girl names picked out, but really struggle with boy names.

Name: Jade
Age: 26
Relationship status: in a relationship

How long until TTC: 2 years
Reasons for WTT: my partner is in the Navy and is being stationed 4 hours away from home, the plan is to wait 2 years and he should hopefully get a choice on moving back to me, if he doesn't get the choice I'm. Going to move up near his parents during this time I will also be working on becoming a driving instructor, we have agreed on hopefully 2 years time as I've told him I won't be having children past 30 years old
Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC: pass my driving instructor courses and establish a good business my partner wants to buy a couple of houses as well
How many children would you like:
I currently have 2 from a previous abusive relationship which he's not around anymore, I want at least one more maybe two depending how I feel at the time
when pg...

Do you have a gender preference?
I desperately want at least 1 boy in my little family but of. Course not end of the world if that doesn't happen although I have told Oh we will be trying for a boy until my uterus drops out 😂
Finding out the gender or team yellow?
Finding out
Any names you like?
If a boy James as its partners middles name and he said there's a tradition, girls I'm not really sure

Name: Kait
Age: 21
Relationship status: Married

How long until TTC: We are hoping for the end of Spring.
Reasons for WTT: My Husband hates owing people money and doesn't feel financially stable no matter how much he actually is stable, if he owes money. We are wanting to pay off our wedding rings at the least before trying, as well as a few other small bills we owe.
Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC: We already have a 3 bedroom home, but I would like to get my drivers license (I know how to drive, just don't have a license ), possibly look into buying another car, as well as paying off our rings and possibly a bed we got last year. We are planning to pay a lot off with our taxes, and buy some baby essentials as well.
How many children would you like: We are both fine with 3 but if it ends up like my mom and aunt (both had 3 boys first, then a youngest girl (me!)) and we have 3 boys I won't be able to resist seeing if we end up with a final girl!

when pg...

Do you have a gender preference? We both want a girl
Finding out the gender or team yellow? Finding out!
Any names you like? For a girl, we both want Dovey or Dove as a nickname. It is his grandmothers name and I really really love the name. For a boy, he wants a J name but we are still tossing ideas around.

Name: Charlotte

Age: 27

Relationship status: Married

How long until TTC?: Hoping to TTC in November/December this year, so 9-10 months, eek!!

Reasons for WTT?: 1) Hubby wants more time to "live life" together before we start a family 2) Waiting for the sale of our house to go through 3) Need to find and buy the new house

How many children would you like?: 2 maybe 3

Do you have a gender preference?: I'd love a girl but I'd be delighted with either

Finding out the gender or team yellow?: I think we'll probably find out, I do like the idea of a surprise though

Any names you like?: I've got a handful of names that I like for each gender but these will probably change over time! I think the best plan would be to have a list of names that we like and see which suits the little one when they're born
