Can I join you?


Hi Everyone, I was wondering if I could join you for a while? Might be a long while since I'm not sure how long I'm going to be WTT...

A little bit about me, I've just turned 23, been with OH just over 3 years and he will be 23 this year too. We are both in agreement that we want to be married before we have children but since OH doesn't seem like he is going to pop the question any time soon I don't know any rough dates for the future

Ideally I would like to be married and either have had or be pregnant with my first child by the time I'm 25 - so two years away...I don't want to be an old mum, no offence to anyone, just my personal preference!

Basically I'd like to use you guys to rant to if that's ok as I'm pretty certain that OH isn't going to propose this year for various reasons and I'm feeling mega broody since everyone around me is having children right now...

Thanks if you got this far!

Welcome pennies! I hope you get a proposal soon... two-years will fly by. I'm 30 now and I honestly don't know where my 20's went. They went to fast as I was having too much fun. X

Thanks Blaire, it just all seems so far away...

I'm totally surrounded by babies at the moment too which doesn't help! My sister is due her first in May (and she's getting married in August), one of my best friend's has two and another is pregnant with her second. Another friend has 3 weeks to go...

I just so want to be joining them, and I don't mind admitting how jealous I am of my sister, she has everything I want right now...

Hey Pennies, Rant away we all do lol

I didn't want to be an old mum either and I still don't although I am 30 now and will be 31 in April, so I guess I am old. My 20's flew past, time flies by without you noticing and 2 years will go so quickly for you

I hope you get the proposal soon and all your plans come together

Welcome Pennies, hope you get a proposal soon. Try to just take things day by day and enjoy each day and try not to let it get you down.

and welcome to bnb and WTT. It must be hard not knowing when you might be getting married so you can't looking forward to a TTC date either. I'm sure he will ask you when you least expect it though and your TTC time will be here before you know it

Thanks everyone.

I'm positive he will do it when I least expect it, although I don't expect it to be this year as he has said several times that when we get engaged he wants me to have my moment With everything my sister has going on this year he doesn't want my moment to be overshadowed with her baby or wedding which is really thoughtful of him...

It's just hard with every birthday, anniversary, valentines day, christmas passing and no special day yet...

Hey, I feel ya here! My OH and I have talked about getting married a lot, and we decided we would soon, but he said he wasn't going to propose until he had gotten a new job and saved some money, which is understandable (I support us right now, and he wants to be supporting us.) We are mostly waiting but we would be really excited if we got pregnant so we don't do too much to prevent

The not having a ring is driving me crazy too! I know he's going to try to make it special, and I understand his reasons for waiting...but I want to get married so bad!

That's good - to know that I'm not alone that is, not that you feel sad too!

I think it is more the not knowing that is getting to me, when I see my sister getting married and having a baby in the same year I am sooo happy for her, but can't help thinking about when I'll get to experience all of that...
