Day dreaming, baby.

My husband and I have awhile until we'll be trying for our future bean. We plan to start trying on our honeymoon in October, the countdown has already started! 151 days to go!
I've had this longing to be a mommy for about 2 years now, and I'm over the moon that it'll finally be happening sooner than I thought. When we talk about raising a family it seems like something that won't happen for another 2-3 years, but knowing that it could potentially be right around the corner has me on cloud 9!
I'm a planner, and a learner so when it comes to venturing into mommy-hood I want to do as much research as I possibly can. I went off my birth control last week and started taking folic acids. In August I will begin taking prenatal vitamins with 3 months until we start trying. It didn't take long for my period to begin once I went off the pill, about 3 days in and even in the past when I've gone off the pill my periods were always regular so I started tracking them with 3 different apps I've found for my phone.
My husband would probably call me crazy with the way I get about planning and wanting to know everything, but I can't help it. I think it finally hit him how much I wanted to be a mom when we visited my cousin in the hospital last Friday; she had given birth to her 3rd child and the 1st boy for my side of the family. I could have held him forever! On our way home I began to cry in the car and I guess that really put it into perspective for him how much I want a little family of our own. The following day we had a talk and decided to start trying on our honeymoon. After almost 8 years together hearing we can start trying for a baby is the best gift he could ever give me and I'm so excited to have him as the father of our future children.

I'll be using this blog to track our progress, from trying to conceive (TTC), getting pregnant, and finally having our little bean. I look forward to chatting with other future mommy's and hearing everyones advice, so please don't be shy, say HI!

What I'm learning about right now:


  1. How exiting! I understand you want to plan and know a lot. But remember, it should also be fun!
    Being pregnant and taking care of a baby is a very important time of your life, and you don't want to stress yourself out too much. It is not always bad if things don't go to plan (and I can insure you they won't as soon as the little one is there)

  2. You are lucky. I wish you all the best and I hope your excitement helps you create a new life!
