I take my last bcp end of September. Hoping I conceive quickly. I am older. I feel like time is of the essence. Good luck to all. Happy trying!

I have a 3 year old daughter now, she'll be 4 about the time we're trying again though. Live in Dorset in the UK. What I'm doing while WTT, well, mostly so busy I don't have time to think of it really. I'm finishing up a PhD and my husband and I also run a family business. I'll be starting a new job in October as a researcher at a university, which will bring with it a 2 hour commute! Have no idea yet how I'll manage that and my daughter and actually having the energy to make another baby. Ask me in December maybe. Not really doing anything to get ready other than just doing all the things I usually do which is to eat healthy and work out a few times a week, though I will start on pregnancy vitamins in September probably. This will be our second and our last, so looking forward to doing it again when I know what to expect and feel like I sort of have this parenting thing figured out. I'll be 36 by the time we're TTC, but it happened almost immediately last time, so hoping things go as well this time too. I have no free time really, but I do like spinning, so I ride my spin bike maybe twice a week and I love cooking (which I get to do every day anyway, so I try to make the most of it), also love being outdoors and we try to go camping when we have a free weekend or at least out for a walk and a picnic to get outside.

We will be ttc #2. We have a 16 month old boy called Arthur. I live in Hampshire in the UK. My little boy keeps me busy whilst wtt. I also work full time as a secondary school teacher so between spending quality time with Arthur and DH and work there isn't much time for anything else. When I do have some spare time I enjoy watching films and tv, and reading. I'm not doing anything at the moment to prepare to ttc but I do plan to take prenatals a few months before starting ttc. I would also like to do some exercise and get fitter before my next pregnancy. But I never seem to have the time or energy! I am feeling quite nervous about ttc. Even though I am excited at the thought of having another, it took nearly 4 years ttc and 2 losses before having Arthur. I don't want to go through that again and I hope it doesn't take as long as I turned 35 last month. And I don't want a huge gap between Arthur and sibling (equally I didn't personally want them to close together either). So I am excited, yet nervous for the journey.

Hi, we will start trying in late Oct. That's when I think my cycles will be in line.

We have no human kids as yet, but we have a menagerie of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 4 birds. We live in Australia.

I'm spending my time WTT by working full time and budgeting to make sure the funds will be right for the 12 months I hope to take off work. I'm starting today to lose weight for a perfect BMI of THE HEALTHY RANGE! I calculated it to be overweight by a few so I'm going to watch I don't over eat and exercise the dogs more. I'm also eating organic, which is more coincidental than related to TTC in Oct. So all in all, weight is getting there. BMI right now : 29. Will keep u posted.

The reason I'm focusing in on weight is because A) I've read that there are additional health risks if overweight, and B) because I need to focus in on something while I Wait Wait Wait to try ! ! !

Can't wait to start trying!

Hello ladies! I'm new to the post but we are WTT but also NTNP. We don't use BC of any kind but we avoid the O days. The reason we want to wait is I'm an American waiting for permanent residency for Canada, allowing for medical care coverage for pregnancy. However, if it happens before the next year not a huge deal, but not ideal.

Hubby agreed that we could "start trying" near the end of this year. I had to give him a dead line so he'll get his butt in gear for the paper work to be finished (haha) but i don't think it really bothers him much cause he still goes all out when DTD.

I've mentioned wanting to take prenatals and he grumbled but said, "wait til November or something, would be a waste otherwise." I know he puts up a front with it he knows that it's a smart idea and wants me to be ready, but he feels he has to be responsible and wants the timing to be "perfect." Sadly we've had 2 MCs already and i think he just doesn't want to try cause he hates to see me get my hopes up and then have to put on my brave face and say "we got this next time!"

He's so compassionate and loving i think it hurts him more to see me crushed, and is afraid that if we actually try and fail again and again that I will fall apart. But for now we are shooting for the end of the year and I'm not taking "meh, maybe" for an answer! GL to all you lovely ladies and i can't wait to hear more of your stories as we get closer!
