jebs_girl: Christy & Josh's TTC Story
Tuesday, April 22, 2008 2:09 PM
"As I am writing our story now, I'm just days away from testing to see if we are pregnant!"
My husband and I met in high school and immediately became friends, but we didn't date until our first year in college. The first time I remember meeting his parents and extended family was at his high school graduation and the first thing his aunt said to me was, "Can't you find him a wonderful girlfriend?" A few months later, I just happened to find her! It was water under the bridge after that!
We dated for four years before he proposed to me on our trip to England in 2005. We were walking the river path in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace, and then he dropped down to his knee and asked if I would be his wife! Everything was so amazing -- the time, place and location was perfect; not to mention he stashed the ring so well I didn't even expect it!
We decided to TTC just shy of our two-year anniversary. We had been going back and forth about it for a few months and the pressure of our friends going down the parent path helped to move us along in our decision. We are both so excited! As I am writing our story now, I am just within days of testing for the first time to see if we are pregnant. (Ahhh!). We have quite a few friends who are going through infertility right now, so we are hoping we are one of the lucky ones who won't experience infertility. Whatever happens, we are hopeful and staying positive!
One of the fun and exciting things about our journey of TTC is where our imagination takes us! We love to talk about the future of our family. We talk about the best things to do and what not to do when parenting. It's just amazing when we share our thoughts and ambitions for our future.
We are both looking forward to being parents. DH would love to have all boys, having grown up in a house with all boys! I just want to be there to calm them when things are rough, to help guide them in their decisions, and to be there to listen to them when they need us. Together we will make a great team!
