You can add in me in! I'll be the first October date woo!

I'm 32 and DH is 35. We've been together 15 years (last Thursday!) and married for 6 years when we TTC.

There have been two main barriers: (1) my career - did a PhD (finished last year finally) and in the meantime didn't have stable jobs for a while, then when I got one, I realised that on the money I was earning and with the rubbish Mat cover, we still couldn't afford it, so I got a new job at the start of the year (with only marginally better Mat cover) and am now patiently waiting out my 6-month probation. (2) DH wasn't/isn't ready.

We knew that were going to do it soon for about a year now, then my job threw a spanner in the works and DH is working himself up to it! (Why do people who want you to have a baby always tell you how you get no sleep and are exhausted etc? I know when you're there, you don't care for love, but before - it's so off-putting for men at least!)

Anyway, on Sunday, we agreed on October to start properly TTC when my probation is finished!

Hi KerryGold I've added you as our first TTC Oct '10
Congrats for your 15 year anniversary of being together!!!
Lucky you with only 6 months probation at work - I've had to be in my job for 2 years before I'm entitled to enhanced maternity pay... I was sooo not expecting to have to wait this long when I started my job Nearly there now though!!!

Hi all

Great thread.

I guess you can add me to the 'Unknown' list...as the decision is not ours to make

I'm 36 and hubby is 42, and if we're ever allowed, it'll be baby #1

Currently we're (not so) patiently waiting to be told we can get on with it

Hi all, not been on in a hundred years so I think I missed out on the list. Am I too late to be added? I am due AF now and we are TTC after it's gone, so my date is kind of late next week! I am 31, DH is 27.

Are people taking the club over to TTC and things too?

Hi all How is everyone today?
Welcome FuzzyTB & PeanutBean - I have added you both to the front!
Fuzzy, can I ask why you're not allowed to try? Hope you can start soon
Peanut - well I'm adding everyone on here who's TTC, and you'll see we've already got 2 BFP's!!!!! I think it'd be nice to keep the group for people at all stages, WTT, TTC/NTNP and BFP!!!! I think it'd be nice to keep in touch with people at all stages - with people not just disappearing when they TTC or whatever! I kinda like it in WTT, so will prob hang round here a while anyway!!! haha But of course, like baby-diva said, you could always start another over there if you wanted?!?!

Soooo anyway, I take my last pill tomorrow which is sooo exciting - but though I didn't think I would be, I'm actually getting a bit nervous now!!!!

Last weekend we had some news from DH's brother - his girlfriend is pregnant - they've been together less than a year and we've not met her yet! I just felt really upset and annoyed when I heard! Firstly, because obviously we’re trying soon, and it kinda feels like they’re stealing our thunder.... that it’ll look like we’re just copying them you know? It also annoys me that we’ve been sensible all these years and they... well, they’re not living together, haven’t been together long, don’t have secure jobs, you know? It’s our turn now!!!
Ah well, I’ve been trying to think of good points – 1. When we have kids they’ll have a cousin around about their age and 2. If DH’s parents already have a little grandchild around they might give us a bit more space!!!!

Me too, thanks

Mainly on-going thyroid issues.

Initially I was hyperthyroid, and on bad-for-baby-growing anti-thyroid meds

Recently had a thyroidectomy, and now I'm hypothyroid (for the rest of my life) and on thyroid replacement meds...and now we're waiting for my levels to settle post-op.

Both my GP and my Endocrinologist have been telling us to wait for the past few years... ...just hope we haven't left it too late

I totally know how you feel, I was then same when we found out DH nephews gf is pregnant, I'd literally just stopped the pill and we were about to start trying when they announced it, even now I think when we tell everyone our news they'll think they 'inspired' us to TTC.... it's silly I know

In other news I got a text from by best friend yesterday (we live quite far apart now) to say she's pregnant with her second and due in March (same as me). Gobsmacked, I didn't tell her I was too, it just feels too early to tell people because I'm still very anxious that things will go wrong but maybe I should've
