Hello! This is my intro

Hi there my name is Relaxasaur. This is my first post on Pregosaur. I am very excited to be a part of the group. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am 26 years old I have been married for 2 years. My husband and I just bought our first home (a townhouse) in April we live in the Chicago suburbs. I have my BA in Sociology and I have been considering go back to school for my masters so I can become a professor, although I do not know what I want to teach. I am the oldest of three girls (I know my poor dad). My youngest sister turns 21 in November and they have been bugging me to have a baby. My answer is always don't hold your breath......until now.

See I never really wanted children at least not in the near future. My husband was a different story. He thought we should be married for a year and then start TTC. I told him that it is not my plan and after we lived with our niece for the first year of her life and that seemed to change his mind. He said we can wait until we are both ready. See Mr Relaxasaur is around kids all day for work. He coaches kids sports classes at park districts with ages ranging from 3 to 11 so he gets his kid fixes. I on the other hand have never really been kid friendly. I am just not that comfortable around children. Living with my niece has helped me a little bit but I still prefer adult company.

Lately I have had some issues with my body, specifically my cervix, which I will go into next time because that is a long story so we have been TTC since the beginning of July. I was on birth control for 7 years so it may take some trying which I think my DH (dear husband) is OK with.


  1. Welcome! I'm right there with you about never really wanting kids, and I'm still not comfortable around children - but I suddenly desperately wanted one of my own! Go figure!

  2. Glad you joined Pregosaur! I love this blog! I am 26 & just got off BCPs in July as well...interested to see how your journey goes. Mine, so far, has been confusing to say the least.

  3. Welcome!! All the best while you continue your TTC journey.

  4. Welcome! Like you and Bibliosaur, I also never saw myself needing or wanting to be a mother. Then, I turned 34 and it hit me like a ton of bricks! DH has been ready since we were engaged, it took me 2.5 years to come around...
    Good luck to you on your journey to motherhood!

  5. Thank you ladies for all the welcomes!
