How are you preparing?


I have my own personal list of achievements/things I would like to learn before I have kids. They're mainly house-wife things (eg, make a roast dinner, tick!) but I did want to quit smoking (done!) and get healthy (oops, not tick).

I felt like I was doing something proactive rather than getting stressed at my DP for not letting me make babies. I just wondered what other ladies goals were?

Definitely for me is changing my lifestyle a little bit, like, less cheese and biscuits and chocolate and more salads and home made meals! I'd like to lose at least a stone after Christmas. I also need to stop smoking! Oh and also... we need to move house almost forgot that one

I need to move house and I'm also going to the gym to try and get fitter and healthier. I am also staring to take folic acid now.

my DH and I have been trying to move toward creating our "nest" - first step of course was buying a house, second step was actually filling it with furniture, painting walls, hanging stuff on the walls, etc. we also got rid of our old cars, replaced with new-ish cars. and, of course, the financial side - we first paid off our CCs, then saved up our "emergency fund," and since then, we've been paying down my student loans. boring. but important.

personally, i wanted to try to get better at running regularly, but it's been really hard with getting sick, the holidays, work. so i think i may go for a smaller goal of doing yoga and walking the dogs with DH. i just started prenatal vitamins a little while ago. just need to go to the dentist!!

We want to take a real vacation together, just us, no family or friends. I want/need to visit my BFF in the south pacific so we can have one last beach vacation together and do it right this time (last time we went with a friend who was quite the wet blanket).

I need to learn Ukrainian! At least start try! OH is Ukrainian and his mother is still there but will come to live with us in a few years. We want our kids to keep the language and culture as much as possible.

and I'd like to lose 10-15lbs before we TTC because I know how I gain weight!

Yeah that's about it.

I think getting fitter/healthier is my main thing and getting my back sorted, probably means strengthening it. I dont drink or smoke so thats ok And have my OH move in with me

I want to get a bit healthier.. lose about about a stone and a half or more if I can, Move into a bigger place in March and keep working hard to save up some emergency fund pennies (ideally about 2000) Lets see how all that goes!!

have moved into a new house (next year hopefully)
lose the weight from first baby
finish my course
learn to drive

so exited to ttc in 2012
