family now know we're WTT


grrr!!!!!!!!!

My mum just over to my house, i was lying on the sofa so tired and forgot that i had left my preconception vitamin on my table. She picked it up..and was all like...what is this? not in a mean way...just in a nosey way. Im not a child so im not concerned in that way.

Girls i didnt want anyone to know that we were thinking of TTC! i feel gutted. We didnt really speak about it...i kinda said...oh i bought them ages ago..and that never to mind them!

I just needed to vent my anger at myself for being so stupid!

Im the same. My family and friends will probably be happy for us once it happens, but right now, im not ready to here any negatives.

My family are very good at passing an opinion, even when it's not welcomed.

I am married with 2 children already, we have been married for 11 years, yet many people still think we can't cope (with a 3rd and last child).

I have a strong genetic chance of getting Cervical Cancer at some point in the next 10-20 years, this would result in infertility. We really and truely want the chance to have another child before it's too late. I know many of you will inderstand that, but they don't particularly.

We're doing it anyway, they will get over it once it's happened!

I didn't want anyone to know either but the other day when talking about flat hunting MIL said to my OH 'if you get a flat on the second floor it will be tricky getting a pushchair up and down... you know if you ever have to'. We haven't discussed anything with anyone so me and OH are just pretending no one knows!

I supose i'm quite lucky then because we are a young couple and we will only just be married when we start TTC. My parents know and my friends and they are really suportive . My OH mum has said as long as your married . His dad on the other hand well we'll just tell him when we're pregnant haha

Oh and i went to my doctors the other day and said about taking my coil out. She asked if i was haivng problems and i said well no.... and tbh she was the more excited than my parents and friends put together!! I was gobsmacked lol She also asked if she could see photo's of the wedding when we've had it I think thats why i like my doctor so much. She's not all stuffy and just purely medical get the job done kind of thing x

My stepdad has been bugging me to give him grandbabies for years now! My mom is finally coming around to the idea. Both know we'll be TTC immediately after our wedding (and we'll actually be NTNP from now until then). My dad and stepmom have no idea and I'm completely okay with that - I think they'd both give me a million reasons to wait a few more years and frankly, I just don't want to wait any longer!

Then do what you want to do, it's your life ! They can say all they want but you're the one who will be responsible for that child, not them

Congrats on the upcoming wedding, that's exciting !

We've talked it over for quite a while now and while adding a baby to our family will likely make it more difficult to finish the teaching credentials I went back to school for, we decided we're going to 'go for it' and make things work! :-) At 27 and wanting at least 4 kids, I gotta get started soon! hehe

And thanks for the wedding well-wishes!
