Newbie!


Hi all,

I'm soooooooo happy to find this site and this WTT section. I have been WTT for about 2 years. Firstly my hubby wanted to wait longer then I got made redundant then I got screwed over at work which took away my entitlement to full maternity pay and now I'm yet again in a potential redundancy situation. Everyone keeps saying to me that if we really wanted it we should just start trying and everything will work itself out but I'm not prepared to bring a child into the world if there is a risk we will have serious financial stress and have to rely on government payouts to get by. In my mind that's just behaving responsibly but no one else seems to appreciate that. Anyway, finding this WTT forum means there must be other people doing the same thing and finding it equally difficult to wait!! Would love to hear your stories and hopefully have some mutual support in our journey!

Welcome to WTT - aww all these newbies it's exciting!! It is hard when other people dont get why you are waiting - but it will be worth it in the end! I hope your wait goes quickly and that the job situation works itself out!

Hello Welcome to WTT.

Well done It's hard but it will be worth it in the end by far. I waited for similar reasons to you, we could probably live off my dh's wage fine, but not be able to afford the nice things, so we've waited till I qualify this year, get a bigger house and huge garden, then plan to have 3 asap! LOL xxxx

Thanks for the welcome ladies, that's really kind. I hope the wait doesn't go on much longer, 2 years is long enough! I should find out in the next couple of weeks if I'm going to lose my job again. If I don't then it's full steam ahead!! If I do then I'll prob have to wait another year keep your fingers crossed for me please! xx
