This time last year I was three days away from my wedding!

I was frantically finishing up last minute details and worrying about the huge hurricane running up the east coast. Luckily, it cleared up beautifully for our big day! We are going to our venue on Sunday (anniversary) and having a nice picnic lunch to celebrate one year together. ^_^ Weather is supposed to be beautiful again June 8th this year.

This time next year I will be finishing up my Masters degree in Elementary Education. I hope to have a job for the fall lined up already but was told by my professor the county can't announce any new hires until July. So very shortly after hopefully.

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
Oh wow glad I found this thread again

It's been almost a year exactly since I posted, I am nearing the end of the second year of my degree (it's been quite a journey), and although I haven't had my reversal operation yet, I have an appt with the surgeon at the end of the month

Great thread

This time last year I was battling through my supervised placement as a third year student nurse after the enormous relief of finally submitting my dissertation. I as a job waiting for me on the ward I was doing my supervised on so I was conscious of attempting to look like I wasn't falling apart with the stress of it all. Me and OH were hardly seeing each other as always working or studying and burning the candle at both ends. I was desperately broody which was demotivating and depressing me. OH was getting depressed as not working. I was fed up but holding on by my nails

Right now I am a qualified nurse, survived the rocky first six months which either makes or breaks a new nurse, loving where I'm working! I'm organising my time better so spend as much of my time off with OH... who is now my hubby OH not working still but started sounding more optimistic about the future. Still broody but not as desperately as before and with talks of starting a family slowly progressing I'm feeling hopeful

Last June we were struggling to come to terms with our son's additional needs. We've all come a long way since then.

It was also a lovely summer, our first in our new home. It's not so lovely outside right now!

It's only our son's issues that have been a massive change for us. Everything else has stayed the same, except our eldest dog passed away in April

One thing I did think last year was that we would be TTC or I'd be pregnant this year. The plan has changed and we are WTT until 2015 at least.

They hated each other and would talk to me about the other one all the time. I was piggy in the middle

We have now moved to a smaller and more basic flat which is cheaper and we are saving every month. We are now married and I work at a different place. It still has it's dramas but it's more comedy than crazy.

This time next year DH will hopefully have passed an exam for promotion and we will have just saved enough money to be able to start looking at houses
I'd like to think that I was in the first trimester but if not then we would definitely be TTC for our first baked potato!

Well this was my quote from this time last year and I can happily say that we saved and saved and saved and we are now living in our first house. We're absolutely skint now but we're happy!

I still work at the new place I mentioned above and I'm very happy. DH passed his exam for promotion though he is yet to get a senior position and as you can see from my ticker we are baking our first potato.

It's been so lovely finding this thread. Don't get me wrong, it's not all been a bed of roses but we've knuckled down and we're finally making progress after years of WTT.

I'd recommend you all put down where you are now and look back on it in a years time. It will make for some good reflective reading

Oh I didn't say my 'this time next year'....I'd love to be coming to the end of my Mat Leave but TBH I'll probably have to be back at work a few months sooner. Maybe we'll be giving some thought as to when we should try for a sibling for our little Monkey.

Keep up the updates ladies x

Mo forgot to say what I hope for this time next year.

I hope to be nearing the end of my degree, with all the academic work done. I also hope to have a baby bump 😀

At this time last year...

I was 23 weeks pregnant with DS.

SIL was living with us and driving me absolutely bonkers.

I was excited for our first anniversary coming up that Father's Day.

I was working towards my medical billing and coding certificate.

I felt like I was in pregnancy limbo and couldn't wait to meet my son. I was so done with being pregnant, it was a very uncomfortable pregnancy the whole way through.

Our finances were awful and we were really worried about them.

At this time this year...

We have a beautiful DS that is crawling around and starting to talk.

SIL is no longer living with us and it's nice to have our home to ourselves again.

I'm excited for our 2nd anniversary in 3 more days.

I'm procrastinating on my medical billing and coding certification.

I'm feeling broody for #2 and hopeful that we'll be able to start trying when I'd like to after we get married next year.

Our finances still aren't great but they're getting on the right track. All of our credit cards are paid off, we're down to one car payment, and we're moving to a more affordable place at the end of July/start of August.

This time next year...

DS will be nearly 2 years old, walking and talking, and I will probably be impatient to be able to start potty training him, lol.

I hope to be married. If all goes according to plan, we will be. Our wedding date is June 6, 2015 and our deposit for our wedding package is paid and my dress is completely paid for.

I'll be excited to celebrate our 3rd anniversary as a married couple instead of an engaged one.

I hope to have finished my medical billing and coding certificate and at least have a part time job, from home if necessary.

I hope to have enough space for a second baby. Renting a 3 bedroom house would be nice.

I hope to have our debt mostly paid off if not all the way.

I hope to be full on TTC baby #2.

We are going to start ttc in late July because of ins programs which pay out if we conceive after July.

Next year, we should be in a home, with a newborn or me being pregnant and continuing with our chosen careers!

Fun thread!
I last posted almost exactly a year ago. We have a 12 week old infant, having conceived in mid July. Unsurprisingly, we did not receive the ins payout

Oh and I purchased a home in Nov and we continue with the same jobs as before!

Very much and very little changed over the last year! A house purchase and a baby isn't much but is also everything!

One year from now, it is unlikely much will change for us in any big way! We are still riding out the changes from last year.

This time last year I had no plan or no idea I would be falling pregnant in a couple of months time. Or that in a years time I would be in a living hell having lost her.

I hope that in a years time I will have my rainbow baby, either in my arms or nearly due.
