Reasons to not jump on the Baby Train

  1. I've decided I want to get my ribs tattooed. Originally I was thinking a back piece (because I am worried about stretching whilst pregnant) but with 3 small tattoos I decided I want to go a little nuts!
  2. We can sleep in as long as we want
  3. I go to work and interact with lots of different people
  4. I come home and don't have to lift a finger until I need to cook dinner (and sometimes Hubby even takes care of that!)
  5. We can plan (and go on) awesome getaways. Even if they are only for long weekends!

We call each other Mr and Mrs Surname. I didn't think I'd like it and Hubby picked up on that in the beginning so never called me it until I asked. It still seems odd sharing a name with his Mum and SiL but it's kind of nice that we're a family.

We decided on the baby thing :) Silly for me to get so excited but hopefully this time next year we'll be very newly pregnant! I know his Mum is desperate for us to have kids which is funny considering the SiL is pregnant with the second baby and it's a girl so she'll have 2 grandchildren soon! For some bizarre reason I've informed both Mums that this time next year they can start getting excited...I know I'm going to regret that later on!

Tomorrow we will have been married for a month and I've only managed to change my name at work and on my licence. But I have come up with my new signature. It looks cool but easy to duplicate...oh well!

I'm forcing myself to look at all the things I have to be happy about because I'm always such a downer and it seems to be working slightly. I wish I was a happier person but not really sure what to do about that!

Baby Brain

Did this slap anyone else in the face after the honeymoon?

I've always wanted kids and it isn't helped by the fact that my brother-in-law has a son and a daughter on the way (he's the same age as me, 24). I've known for ages that we can't even entertain the thought of trying until Hubby is out of university (end of 2011). Except I'm pushing for earlier and wanting to start trying once we know he's in a graduate program. I know this isn't smart because there's never any guarantee until you're physically in the job that it will definitely be there but I feel like I've been waiting forever and I can't stand the idea of waiting any longer.

We've both agreed we need to do some more travelling (especially to places we don't want to go with kids) and we're planning on doing that next July. Then hopefully we'll start trying for a baby after that.

I just feel so stupid for wanting it so badly when I know now is not the right time. I also feel bad because I know Hubby could happily wait until he's out of uni (or even longer). But he knows how desperate I am that he's willing to move things along at a faster rate.

Grrr why can't logical over ride my damn heart!

Whilst on my honeymoon I became inspired to keep up the blogging (I blame the Julie & Julia dvd). Of course with the wedding over, I felt my old blog wouldn't be the right place to do so. 
So here I am, attempting to set out and strive to actually make a go of this blogging thing. Others have become highly successful but that isn't my aim. I really enjoyed the camaraderie of my previous blog and I hope to achieve that here as well.
