 Why are you anon?

I live on post on Carson. My husband and I have been here almost a month now. I've met a couple times with other ladies for coffee and to chat, but I also need someone to go out and do something with. Like see a movie, or lunch or just walk around at the mall. I dunno so much about shopping- trying to save money. haha. Or even see a movie at my place and just talk.

We don't have any kids, but we are trying- just having a bit of a hard time on getting pregnant. I need other human interaction besides my husband.

Where on post are you working? I searched for jobs the other day and only one thing came up and I don't even know what the title was. haha.

I hope you guys get your baby soon. I was 6 months pregnant when we lost our baby and now we've been trying for almost 2 years. We were just told why I haven't been able to get pregnant and before we left Arizona, I was told I have to take Clomid- I still need to find a doctor here so I can start taking it.

Yeah from what I hear its hard to get jobs there. I don't know though. I will be working for school and youth services.
That's good that you at least know what you need. Our doctor wouldn't check is for infertility till it had been a year, which is ridiculouse to me, but whatever. Are you going to try to go to the doctor on or off post?

 I've been searching online and found a Woman's Clinic off post that seems somewhat similar to the one I would go to in Az. I'm going to see how that one is after all the holiday craze passes and I'll let you know... ? Unless you want to go and try it with me? haha.
