Well the new year is here and I am looking forward to starting my family. I feel ready, and ready to move on to the next chapter of my life. I will be 23 in March. The really scary fact is that once I turn 23, I will have 3 years before I turn 26.. I feel as though my life has just zipped right past me.. It is really crazy to think about.
Being a planner by nature, I have started pricing baby things, and figuring out how much money we will need to save. I have been on Pinterest and looking for ideas and really just planning away. I am looking forward to putting some of those plans in action. We have two names picked out, one for a boy and the other for a girl. I have been thinking of creative ways to announce that we are expecting. In all honesty though, I really haven’t put to much thought into those ideas. I have also been thinking of gender reveal parties. I like the idea of having close friends and family together to tell them in person the gender before announcing on social media. However, I really can’t imagine throwing a big party like you see pinned on Pinterest. Is this just me?
As I prepare myself to embark on my TTC journey. I have decided to try not to chart, stress, and worry over it. It is a lot easier to say then do. I have been keeping track of my cycles, and fertile weeks. I really want to just relax, and allow things happen naturally. One of things that I have been doing has been remembering that everything happens in seasons. I have really been mentally preparing myself. Really preparing to get into a zone. If you have any advice, please feel free to share with me! I would love to get your input!
