Hi and welcome to BnB
I hope your hubby can get over here soon, it's great that you've managed the long distance for so long. That can't have been easy!
As for preparing for TTC you could start taking folic acid, eating a healthy diet? X
Just wanted to say welcome! I was actually in the same position last year as your husband is now (I'm American and my now husband is English, and I moved here to the UK to be with him after we met in India where we were both working 4 years ago). Getting all your visas in order can be a real bitch (not to mention so expensive!). I now have my leave to remain (though not the indefinite leave to remain yet, that will come when I reapply in 3 years). So let me know if you have any questions or anything. And hang in there! It's a real pain and stressful (I'm so glad the idea of TTC hadn't even occurred to us yet then), but it is so much better once you can be together that it's totally worth it in the end!
