    Paige and skittles threads have me thinking about babies. We are not trying yet, but probably in a couple years.

    So, who here is pregnant or trying to be?

    Not for a while, we're way too financially unstable and we like training dogs with our schedule too much for now. Babies can come after stable jobs and a few more titles are acquired and I'm ready to sit out training for a while. :)

    I think I would literally burst into tears if I found out I were pregnant. Way too many things to do and places to go!

    No and No. Heck, with my stress levels being stupid and a wonky schedule we don't even practice. I suspect I need to change BC to get my libido back. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I ended up pregnant (Justin would be thrilled) but it's something I want to wait at least two more years for.

    Not pregnant. But not trying.
    But we are in the "I can't take BC right now due to my hormones and we are being super cautious using condoms and taking long breaks between sex but we know that nothing is 100% bulletproof" mode lol.

    I've got a 5 1/2-yr-old, 3 1/2-yr-old, and 23-month-old and have had a tubal ligation. I would say the answer is "NO!".

    LOL!

    I have a 31 year old and a 28 year old. I would also say the answer is "NO!" (Plus, I couldn't even if I wanted to....which I don't.) :rofl1:

    We've been doing the whole "not trying, not preventing" thing. If we don't get pregnant by our second wedding anniversary then I may start charting ovulation and the whole shebang, but right now we are just having fun.... Though we'd like to start a family.

    Certainly not pregnant and certainly not trying, as I sleep alone 25 days a month. :eek: :lol-sign:

    But speaking of babies, my newest cousin, Felix, was born today! Good thing I have so many cousins and so many new babies in the family, keeps my mom from pestering too much about grandbabies and it keeps my baby want at bay.

    This.
    I don't want to have kids til I am totally ready to, that means I have had my child-less adult adventures full of things to do and places to go :) then had my married go anywhere travel anywhere live anywhere have sex anywhere adventures
    and then when we are both financially stable enough to start a college fund, pay for private school and do it all 100% responsibly in my eyes etc.. and life-stable enough to have a home with enough space, schools ready and child-friendly work schedules... then I might consider it

    but until then, practice makes perfect lol

    No and No, not until 2015ish.

    I'm in a similar spot as Adrianne - I need more titles on my dogs before kids. ;) Tho I will say we've had three babies born to women in our schh club in the last year and they're all back at training, one after a week, one after 6 weeks, and the third after 4 weeks! The club has considered putting up a kennel run for all the munchkins to play in while their parents are on the field! LOL
     
  19. We'll be trying for adoption papers after Winnie turns two, but right now, we're just enjoying life as a three person, three dog family. :) After our last pregnancy, there will be no more growing inside of me, so we're being careful until Tricare will authorize tube tying, however, we do want another - but there are so many kiddos out there with no place to go and nobody to love them. We want to bring one into the love that this house holds. <3

    Uhm, NO! I shove drugs into my system to prevent these things from happening. I, too, will continue with the practice aspect.
