Am I out ot my mind CRAZY???? When DH and I first got married, we decided to start trying for a family 2 years after we were married (our 2 yr. anniversary was this past March). Well, about a year after we were married, I decided to go into nursing and we thought it best to postpone the babymaking till I finished school (which makes VERY logical sense!); however, it's been increasingly difficult to accept the idea of waiting till I'm 30 to have our first baby. DH ....like every man...thinks he has super sperm and I will get preggers the very first month we try
Anyway, I'm not so convinced!
When I was 17 I had surgery for dermoid tumors and they removed my right ovary and a 1/4 of my left ovary. My doctor says my remaining 3/4 of and ovary fx's normally and I'll be fine...but that doesn't stop the doubt in my mind! It took a friend of mine two years to conceive and another has been trying for over three year's now and is preparing to start fertility tx's. I just feel that I would prefer my strike-outs to happen while I'm in school and have something else to preoocupy my mind. I think I finally got throught to DH when I told him that having a family is more important to me than nursing and that I'd like to start trying to have a baby now. Don't get me wrong...Nursing is very important to me but I don't care if I finish my nursing program before or after the baby.
I'm not even sure if I'll be admitted into the nursing program at my school...there's 90 seats available and 250 some applicants! And you better believe I'm not waiting 3+ years (ADN program) to start having a baby!!!! Anyway, DH has finally realized that I'm very serious about having a baby at this point in my life and that if pregnant during school, I would not forget about nursing...only postpone it for a year....he has agreed that we can start trying to conceive when I feel I'm ready.
We are going on a cruise to the British Virgin Islands in January so I figured we would start right after the cruise!
Now keep in mind that this is after 1st semester so even if I did get pregnant just out of the gate I'd still be able to finish my 1st year of nursing school, take off a year and then finish my 2nd year. Now, If it takes a year (like it does for most average people) I would be pregnant during my last semester and be able to grduate no problem (albeit pregnant!).
So...does this seem crazy? Any input is welcome....sorry this is so long!
