I have 2 yrs of college left, but I know so many parents in college that have children and they do just fine. I try to convince him that it wont affect us, I will just take the semester off that I am expecting and go back the next semester. I would like to have 2 to 3 children and I know how long the process can take especially with PCOS. I am 28 and I dont want to take the risk of not having my dreams come true. After I had my miscarriage in 2004 I was so scared to try again b/c I was heartbroken. I took me a long time to get to where I am now, and I just feel like I shouldn't have to wait any longer. My OH is 34, 5 yrs older than me. You would think that he would be ready too.
Aw, Best of luck hon, I hope it all works out for you...

Well, I just had another heart felt talk with my DH and he agreed that we could start trying right away. I am so excited.

I was going to post this in a new post, but thought it was better here as it's related to this topic. (Slight hijack, sorry!).

My OH is here (poorly but here), in the same room as me. First time in several weeks (due to his work), and I just can't bring myself to talk to him! My dad is also here so I've not actually had a chance to speak to him on my own yet, but omg. It's driving me mad.

I know I should just bring it up with him, but I just can't. Might broach it with him in bed tonight. Drives me mad. I know I should just chat to him, but every other convocation we've had has always ended up with 'we have lots of time babe, lets not rush it).

I know exactly what you mean! It's so hard to just open your mouth and blurt it out! There's been a few happy endings on this thread already though so maybe you'll be another one!! Best of luck!

Olivette, I know how you feel! I'm terrible at starting serious conversations with OH. I get myself all worked up over it. Worst is when I'm mulling over something for days trying to work up to being able to blurt it out, because I'll get preoccupied and moody, which makes OH grumpy... and then it's never a good time to start talking!

I don't even know why I do it; my OH is usually pretty easy going and reasonable, and even if a convo gets heated, neither of us is the type to get into yelling matches or anything like that.

For me, I think I'm just afraid to put myself out there! I know OH will listen to me and at least try to understand where I'm coming from, but there's always that little fear that he'll just brush it off or make fun of something important to me (hasn't happened yet, but that doesn't stop me from being a little neurotic anyway!). Plus, it can be very disconcerting when I bring something up that means a lot to me, and finding out OH doesn't feel the same way about it/doesn't find it as important as I do. Some little part of me thinks that: "I love you and you love me, so you should just automatically understand where I'm coming from!"

So after finally plucking up the courage to talk to OH, the outcome wasn't so great really. .

He was on his computer (meh), and I just sat down next to him and said 'I was thinking about when my injection runs out', and the convocation went from there really. I tried to put across that I really did believe NTNP would be great (explaining all about it and the like..), and his reply basically was 'well we might as well use condoms', followed by 'its too soon to have a baby'. So. That's that then. He continued playing his game, I said NOTHING further and just walked away he probably didn't even notice I went back to the sofa.

He'll most likely comment later 'Oh babe, whats up? your quiet', not realizing his majorly upset me, and i'll just fob it off by saying I'm tired. Meh.
