So how is everyone today? I've got two weeks off work now so I'm pretty happy!!! Just gutted I'm not getting a holiday this year... We've spent the last year and a half doing the house up, and are still going... so no money left for a holiday unfortunately... the only thing keeping me going without a holiday is TTC in a couple of months!!!!

Hey Angie, I completely understand your determination to have a baby before you're 33!!! As you know, I'll be 31 too in a couple of weeks and yeah - I'd definately better have a by then!!!!

OAP club


Ooooh, ladies, I was just thinking - as we are now the OAP club why don't I add all our ages and when we'll be TTC to the front page? That way we can keep track of all our 'members', etc? I'll work through the pages so far and add all the details I have for everyone

I've no problem with those who are WTT at a much younger age, but I sometimes feel very 'old' on here as there are so many girls on here so much younger than I am... so I thought maybe we could do with this thread to 'realise' that we're not actually that old!!! haha... and also I think there are lots of differences between trying at 18/19 and trying in your 30's!!!

So how old is everyone, and their partner? How long have you been together? And why are you waiting to try/why did you decide to leave babies until a bit later?

So anyway, I'll introduce myself! I'm 30 years old - 31 next month and DH is 37. We've been together for 10 years and been married for almost 5! To be honest I'm really not sure why we've waited until now to have kids as we've both wanted them for years!!! I guess we've just been waiting to be in a better position... One reason has been that we were renting and it was important to me to have bought a house before we started a family. So we managed this almost 2 years ago (although we're still busy doing it up!).
I was also studying on and off until the age of 25 and DH doesn't have a well paid job... so I wanted to get a better job before trying... however, I then found out I had to be there 2 years before I was entitled to maternity pay!!!! So that put it off again for a bit longer!!! Although I have now been there long enough!!! Yay!!!!
Now is certainly not the ideal time either as 1. I'm part way thorough my MSc by distance learning, (but I'm going to take a break after this year) and 2. DH is going to be made redundant some time in the next year. But we've put it off long enough and I'm desperate now for a baby, soooo, things are not too bad now and I'm sure we'll get through the redundancy thing... I know that DH will just do whatever he has to do to keep the money coming in for the mortgage, etc... So, for us, now is the right time I guess... I just worry in case it doesn't happen too easily and I regret putting it off so many years...

As mentioned later on in the thread, below are all 'members of the OAP club! Please let me know if anything is incorrect or has changed! Updated as of 5/6/10. Newbies will be added :-)

Thanks for doing that Caroline

Just to update me, my DH is 37 not 27 (he wishes ) and we are just about to NTNP (CD3 for me today and this is my first cycle since stopping Cerazette) so I suppose I should be on the list for TTC - Aaarrgghh that makes it real
I'm staying in WTT though because TTC is scarey, I'll just dip my toe in now and then.

Morning ladies!

My OH is on his stag weekend this weekend (extra early in case of any mis-haps!) and is back tonight - I can't wait to see him as I've missed him loads!

I have exams in a few weeks so I'm studying this weekend. I couldn't invite any friends over to keep me company as I HAVE to study! Such an exciting life I lead at the moment!

Thanks for adding me to the list
