DH & I have been together for 2 years, we got married this past summer. We're very happy.
We have two dogs, who are goofy.
We live in the mountains in Idaho (USA) and are very outdoorsy. I like to crochet, cook, and read. We don't have a tv.
I have leaky gut syndrome, which causes lots of health issues including food allergies. It's getting better. It's the original reason we were WTT. I have anxiety issues which tend to make things interesting. DH is a great support system.
I teach online university courses, and this semester I got a reduced course load (not sure why, I have great reviews!) so our WTT has been pushed further into the unknown time line because of tight finances. Maybe soon, maybe not.
We're super excited to have kids. We're learning everything we can while we're WTT.
I've fallen in love with BnB and I thought it would be nice if we could have a thread just for the WTT for #1 ladies (and guys if there are any).
I've been married to Mr Gruffalo for just over a year, and we've been together for 3 years in November
We live on the South Coast of England, not far from the sea, but miles from both our families. We bought our home around the same time we got married (and moved in together for the first time the day after the wedding!). We were lucky enough to be able to afford a nice three bed house, so we have a spare room ready for LO
We're currently WTT as DH is a bit nervous about money (though I think he's crazy to worry- we have lots of savings!) and would like to reach our 2nd anniversary before having a LO around. I'd like to start NTNP at Christmas, he's thinking the summer, so we're provisionally going to around Easter *fingers crossed*
I'm excited about the idea of becoming a mummy, but obviously nervous too!
I am mrsswaffer or Rebekah, known as Bex to my friends. DH and I have been together 10 years and married for 1 year 3 months.
We live in Canterbury, Kent (UK), in a rented 2-bed flat. I'm a Newly Qualified Nurse, and have been in my first nursing job 6 weeks now (it has gone too quickly!)! DH is training to be a teacher, and will hopefully qualify in June next year.
We're WTT #1 until October next year, when DH has got his first teaching job and I've been in my job a year. We both want to be stable in our careers, and independent financially. Our parents are very excited about the prospect of grandchildren, but they don't know our plan, so it'll all be a lovely surprise when we do fall pregnant. I can't wait!
This month is my first month off the Pill, and I'm currently charting my BBT on FF (it's all very exciting!!), just to get to grips with my cycles so it'll be easier to predict my ovulation date and next period etc. I've not had a normal period off the Pill for 8 years!
I love love love BnB, and have made some really lovely friends so far.
EDIT - I forgot to mention that we'll be NTNP from April 2012, hopefully.
Hi ladies! My name is Theresa. DH and I have been together for about 10 years-ish, married for 1.5 years. I'm very nervous to become a mom but very excited as well! DH is going to be a great dad. We've been wwt because I was laid off of work this time last year and have only been working part time since. Well, I just got full time job and DH is in a nice job so we will officially start trying in January but are NTNP right now. I am so excited to get that BFP!
I'm Everdreaming, I'm 21 and my OH is 33 We're currently both in our second year training to be nurses! We live apart, which is a main reason for WTT, but I'm currently attempting to convince him that living together is a good thing
Currently the 'discussion' date for TTC is 2014 but we'll see how things change in the next few years Hopefully we can NTNP from mid-third year of training, so if I was to miraculously fall pregnant straight away I could still complete the course.
I've just started charting on FF as my Dr doesn't think I ovulate, and I have a few other gynae issues, coupled with OH's troubles I'm super concerned about waiting too long to try, especially with him being older. Here's hoping we can try soon..
I've been with DH for 5 years and married for 2 and a wee bit years! He's 25 and I have 6 days left of being 23! We have a lovely 2 bed flat, 2 jobs each - out of fun, not necessity!
Our reason for wtt were that we're still young, didn't have the right income and reason after reason after reason until the perfect timing! We sat and talked about the 'perfect time to have a baby' and worked out that by the time we thought we could be ready...we'd be in early retirement! !!! So we agreed on next August! (this was a few months ago!)
Now I sit here knowing that hubs wants to start in January and I have convinced myself that I want a Christmas baby! That's Christmas 2012! Eeek!!
I can, at times, feel ready but then (like tonight) have a major freak out about everything... (I know that initial costs of prams etc can be dealt with but then I remember that a pack of nappies is about £10 and then you need the wipes too! And its a constant need! But we have now sorted that out!) I can justify spending money on the baby but why do I need to get maternity clothes!? Can we really afford for me to get things like that? etc etc etc... And I know we can, I just freak out now that I know its going to happen!
Hubs isn't worried at all and I think that his lack of talking about things makes me a little worse! Lol...But hey... they are my neurosis!
And that's my introduction! I'm not always this crazy!
Anyways! Its number one and I'm allowed...right! lol!
Im 25 (nearly 26), OH i 24. We live in Birmingham with our two dogs and a cat.
We have been together 4 years this xmas. Married last year, and actually just this week we hit our house deposit target so in the next few weeks ill kick stat the ball rolling there.
Were wtt mainlt due to the house deposit and we also want to save up and upgrade our car to an estate. We have said we will ttc from april but recently things have been going well for us, so might be able to push that forward and start in Dec/New Year.
OH worries about how much he works, as its unsocial hours and most week he does 60+ hours but to be honest the only time that will change is when he retires :S
Thats me, probably missed loads out but looking forward to ttc in the next 6 months
Yay! Hi ladies (and possibly gents, lol!). I'm dontworry AKA Jess.
My OH and I are both 21 (he'll be 22 in Jan). We live in California (USA) with our huge fur-baby, Crook. We love to read, watch new movies, and have deep intellectual conversations over Thai food! :P
We are WTT because we'd like to be married before we start popping out babies (this is more of OH's preference, though I understand and respect his reasoning!). We will be getting married in late January of 2012, so as soon as we're in the clear there, we can start trying. We are VERY excited about trying and hope it happens rather quickly for us, but we will take what we get! :P
I'm hoping for a girl (secretly, shhh!), and OH wants a boy of course.
I'm Medzi - but my name is Meghan. DH and I have been together for about 7 years and married for 2. We live in Alberta, Canada and have a cat named Oswald and a fish named Mog! I have always lived here but DH is originally from Pittsburgh. I am 27 (28 in December) and he is 29. He works with computers and I do public relations.
We are WTT due to my kidney disease. We are both ready, are pretty well off financially and although we just rent, our place is nice and big enough to add one more I have my appointment with a Internist who specializes in medical disorders and pregnancy on November 10 and we will see what happens from there. Could move on to TTC or not - we will see!
