You sound so happy! That all is such wonderful news and thanks for sharing. In a time when all we seem to do is pull together over the bad things, it's refreshing to see you two doing the right things and taking care of each other, and I'm glad we can pull together for a good thing.

I think you both will make wonderful parents. Congratulations on the next step of your journey.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you guys. It seems like there are so many people having difficulties lately and it's nice to know that there are bright spots too.

Ahh, thank you all for your well wishes and advice!

Congrats on 34 years of marriage Jan, that is wonderful.

We have opened up a high interest savings account with our bank when we opened up a joint account. Right now I am just rounding up to the next dollar and placing that in the account... sometimes just a few cents, sometimes a couple dollars... It all adds up. Once he his new pay schedule kicks in I will reassess how much to start squirreling away. My goal... might be a little high... but my goal is to have 3 months worth of wages saved up for when I would go on MAT leave. Giving me ----roughly--- enough for 6 months, with MAT pay. If we could afford for me to have the full year off I would love that!

Not sure how it works in other countries but in Canada we can have up to one full year off for MAT leave, receiving around 55% of your regular income (paid by the lovely government) The number seems to have gone up. Last time I looked... (albeit 5 years ago ) it was only 40%.

Should I get hired with DH this would be exponentially better.

I know, I know, don't count the chickens before they hatch! One reason I can go on, and on here instead of talking up my mom. haha. I'd be getting the lectures for sure... I know not to get my hopes up, **** stills happens and this could all be for nothing... but it's nice to be able to think and dream out loud. Too bad I suck at blogging, or I'd just do that.

I always forget I have a blog though.

Krystal, don't let anyone ever tell you not to get your hopes up. Planning a happy future for your family is a good thing, and it seems like you are planning well.

Congrats to you husband on his new job, I hope you can get hired on there also.

Thank you! It's nice to be reassured. It's impossible to stop thinking of the possibilities right now.

Aww, thank you. I am a sap like that too.

Thanks, I have joined a gym in hopes of losing weight, for when we have a baby and now having a loose date in mind gives me even more motivation.

Been working really hard to kick some bad habits. Going pretty well so far. Caffeine free since February (and I was drinking around two 2 litre bottles of coke a day --- yikes) drinking lots of water, and generally wanting to eat better. I was getting close to the unsafe weight for a pregnancy, and I don't want to pass on my bad habits to my kid... So I decided to start now, and get ready.

I'm always planning ahead!
