Hi! I'm Blaire (30) and my husband is John (also 30). We live in Girvan in Scotland. I am a a PR officer in the public sector and John is a Mechanical Engineer. We met at high school 14 years ago and we've been together since. We got married last year - thought it was about time! We have a cat called Angus and he's our baby just now. We live in a comfortable 3 bedroom trendy flat which suits working professionals but I don't plan on bring up my kids in it! We've got good jobs that we've worked hard over the last 6 year to establish ourselves in. Everything has fallen nicely into place over the last 10 years and we think it's maybe time we thought about kids. So we're going on holiday at easter hopefully to celebrate the fact that it'll be our last indulgent holiday just the two of us... and ttc from there.

There are still a few things i'd like to do before any baby arrives:

1. Pay off my credit card (currently 1200);
2. Save for moving house;
3. Move to a family house.

I think that's it! Anything else you want to know just ask!

and good luck with your scan welshmum2b xx
I dont know really. I'm quite content with my own company so just managed. his first time away we hated it, and we forever rang and text each other, but after that it got easier.

He hasnt left since Amara has been born, and Im dreading him leaving if im honest. I know I'll cope, but I've just took my car off the road (to save up for wedding) and I feel like i've lost all my independance, but it's getting me out walking, which is good for the diet.

I do get lonely at times, as I dont have any friends round where I am, so a WTT buddy would be nice to chat to.




I just got back from doctors, it was my 6 week check up. She asked me about contraception. I didnt mention we are going to try in September, i just said I didnt see the point as OH is going soon for 4 months, and I wont need them. Haven't told my mum yet, as she wanted me to go back on the pill, (she doesn't know we are WTT) mainly so I dont get pregnant again, what with the wedding and all.

my goals before TTC are....
1)finish uni! may 1st is hand in date!!!
2) move in with OH
3) get some work experience and save up some money a) toward mortgage and b) towrads baby! just become a bodyshop consultant so hoping that helps
4) buy a car, i can already drive but can't afford one at the mo

I'm 22 and OH is 21... x
hi immimx, wow you situation really is similar to mine!!
what are you studying at uni? im also finishing uni in may but i think ill be more towards the middle to end of may...still waiting for exam dates

i really dont think i could handle that...but i suppose it does get easier. i mean me and my OH have a lovely relationship but we have such different interests so end up doing completely different things while we are in the house, but just having someone around is still nice.

ye i think i would have done the same, as strange as it sounds though i think being on the pill makes me feel a bit less broody...when i came off it a little while ago i felt awful and looking back i feel like i was just a walking nightmare to my OH. dont get me wrong it doesnt stop me wanting and thinking about a baby and the future somehow i just feel a little more patient (most of the time) xx

This is a great idea!

I've just turned 23, my OH will be 23 in September. We've been together for just over 3 years and living together just over 2. We have a 1 year old black german shepherd and she is totally my baby

Our main reason for waiting is because we want to be married first...currently saving hard for both a wedding and a baby because I'd like to have had my first baby or be pregnant by the time I'm 25.

Don't really have any dates for TTC since it all depends on OH popping the question and then us setting a wedding date! Would be nice to have some company whilst WTT

I do feel lonely, but I have Amara now, so I dont think it'll be too bad. Althou she cant talk, but she has just started smiling.

Im not sure if the pill would affect my broodiness. i told my mum, as she came over, and she was cool with it, said aslong as I use condoms. Still didnt mention WTT and when we will TTC. I think i'll leave it a suprise after the wedding, and tell them when (fingers crossed) im about 12-16 weeks pregnant, if I can wait that long. My mum knew the day I found out at 4 weeks, and my pregnancy seemed to last forever. lol.


We've got quite a few in here now

We too are waiting because of a wedding. Although we had a baby first, but have been engaged just over 2 years now. I hope you get your proposal soon, planning a wedding is SO exciting, although I'm not looking forward to having everyone look at me in a dress. OH hasn't even seen me in a dress and we've been together almost 4 1/2 years.
