At this time last year I was still in the "I don't want kids" boat!

This time last year I was just completing my Access course at college and had failed to secure a place at Uni to study Midwifery , instead I had just been offered a job as a Neonatal Support Worker in a local hospital . Had no intention of planning for another baby (although had always regretted my sterilisation op).

Now I am in uni studying Midwifery (got a last minute offer from a uni that had originally rejected me) . I have almost completed my first year and I love it . Me and DH also had THE conversation where he admitted that he too regretted the sterilization and so we recently decided to have the reversal and try for our last baby .

This time next year I hope to be about to complete my second year of uni and to have had my reversal operation and be getting myself in tip top condition for ttc around November time

I hope you don't mind me turning it into a post!

It's almost my birthday so I can remember specifically where we were in life this time last year. We had just bought our house, had no money or even furniture except for an air mattress that served as a couch/bed/dinner table thinking about how 'stuck' we were. I didn't think we would ever have kids because of how bad we were struggling, choosing between food and bills every week and we don't qualify for assistance. I thought getting this house was a mistake because while our income was too high for assistance, I couldn't figure out why it wasn't enough for bills and other important things (gas, food, etc) I was looking at all my pre-baby goals and thinking "we are never gonna get caught up on bills, much less save money or get married!"

Then i learned to make a budget (something i'll teach my children about very early on) i honestly didn't know how to make one before we had big money bills, nobody I knew had ever used one.
Then he got a small raise (a few cents an hour makes a huge difference). Then I got a job after looking for forever.. Now we have saved $800 In 2 weeks to pay off the car, and not one bill was overdue these last few months. Oh! And now we are happily married with plenty of furniture

This time next year I hope we have all of our debt, besides the mortgage, paid off. I hope we are putting all the money I'm making into a savings account and are living on his income alone...preparing us for when I can be a stay at home mommy,
i hope to be pregnant or TTC, maybe (if I'm super lucky) ill be a mommy!

Where were you early summer last year? Where do you hope to be next year?
It will be pretty cool to look back next June to see how far we've all come!
Going through old subscriptions and found this!
To add to last year my husband lost his job jun 5 and I found out I was pregnant June 6.

Since then he's had trouble holding down a steady job, but just got hired back at his job he got fired from last year so hopefully he can keep this one.
We did manage to pay off the car, so now we only have our mortgage and debt to family who has helped us. We're waiting on my inheritance from my grandfather so hopefully that'll come this year..he's been gone for 2 years now so I'm not hopeful (I hope that doesn't sound cold, I love and miss him very much)

The biggest thing that's different is that I'm a mommy he's so perfect. Now I'm thinking about having him a sibling.

This time next year I hope our house has been sold/rented and we're building another. We have plenty of furniture for a few bedrooms and a nursery. I don't want to be pregnant with #2 quite yet but we will see.

Can't wait to read everyone's updates!

What a great idea for a thread! Mellipaige i read your first post in this thread and so happy for you that you are now a mum! Just liked you hoped

This time last year I was living in London and working a fixed term contract in a job I really enjoyed. I also had no real idea when we would be able to ttc as there was no way in London and we wanted to move home but had to wait fir OH to progress in his job and then get a promotion that would lead us back home. A year on we have now moved home due to OH getting his promotion! And I am now job hunting. We are starting to ttc in December so the rest of this year will be spent enjoying time together and with our friends and going to festivals and holidays plus training for my first marathon in October.
This time next year I hope to be pregnant! If we are very lucky and are successful first time I will be almost 6 months! I will come back and update next year

This is cool, I love seeing updates on how people get on and it is fun not having to wait a year to read them . This time last year things were pretty much the same as they are now. DD was about 7 weeks old, DS was about 22 months old and I was on maternity leave. now the kids are older (of course lol) and I'm back working but nothing else has changed, which I'm pleased about . Hopefully this time next year things will be the same, except I'd love to be pregnant with number 3 or looking forward to ttc soon- I can dream

I remember doing one of these a couple of years back when we were wtt#1. Makes me want to scour through to find it

This time last year I was 5 months pregnant. We'd been in our house 6 months are were still slowing getting there with the redecoration. We were also saving every penny we could for once my maternity leave started. Both in steady careers and extremely happy with where life was taking us.

This year, DD is 7 months and she's just amazing. I am loving being a mummy, I see so many of both mine and OH's personality traits coming out in DD. She's definitely got my stubbornness. I'm enjoying being on maternity leave, not looking forward to leaving DD when I have to go back, luckily I'll only be returning part time. Our house is decorated to as much as we can do, we can't afford to fit a new bathroom just yet. OH is climbing the career ladder in his respective field, and he's happy in his job.

This time next year I'll be back at work, DD will be in nursery. Hopefully OH will be getting more credits for his work, and we'll be preparing to ttc#2. I would like to think OH might've popped the question by then too.

At this time next year I hope to be accepted into the Early Childhood Education program and hopefully live on my own soon. I love my mom and living with her but I don't want to live with her forever.

Last year at this time I realized I wanted to work with children so I took a grade 12 english class last September. It's the only mark I need to get into the ECE program but my final mark wasn't high enough so this September I'm taking it again. I was hoping to do the ECE this fall but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Hopefully in a few years when I have children I'll come along this post.
