    Well, I talked to my husband this past week about when to have a baby (before now, he did not even like to talk about it!), and this conversation went really well. He said that he just wants to be in his last semester of school, so that he is out of school well before I give birth. This, I could respect and definitely understand, also this is only about 6-8 months away!

    So, for all of us that are waiting to try, I thought it would be kinda fun to make a list of the things we want to do or that would be nice to do before we get pregnant. I will start the list, and everyone can add to it.

    Take a vacation or road trip
    Get in better shape
    Wear everything in my wardrobe!
    Take a cooking class

    Update November 19, 2008

    My husband and I have moved up our TTC date to March or April, however I am getting a little bit antsy, so I decided to alter my list a little. I am now going to list the things that I am going to enjoy doing before I get pregnant.

    -Eating whatever I want (now that I have achieved my Get in Better Shape goal)
    -The occassional drink
    -Feeling energized! (I am holding onto hope that I will still feel energized during pregnancy, but this is my first, so this might be blind optimism)
    -Having the freedom to plan my vacation from above list (we are planning a cruise in March, which I am not sure would mix with morning sickness)

    Get in better shape!
    Complete an access course, maybe even first year of uni!
    Buy a whole new wardrobe.
    Buy a nice car.
    Go on holiday with a boyfriend (when I get one!)
    Go away with the girls.
    Drink lots of alcohol.
    Give up smoking.
    Grow my hair.
    Take pole dancing lessons.
    Take revenge on my ex :muaha:
    Save as much money as possible, for my secret baby fund!

    What a great thread! :D

    • Get in shape / Reach clothes size 8-10
    • Get out of grazing habit / Not eat everything in sight / Be in CONTROL of my diet
    • Keep house tidy EVERY DAY
    • Feel sexy
    • Recover from operation

    Mine are more practical rather than things I'd like to do before having kids because, well we have one baby already and except for the above things we are ready for another... It would just be nice to accomplish the above first, as this will make us 100% indubitably ready.

    i just about fit a travel system and the three of us in their and before maddi used to get my nan and her wheel chair in together, but no way would we get us all in! lucky my mum has a bigger more practical car. i nearly brought the mazda mx5 - thank god i didn't imagine getting maddi in that :rofl:

    as for disney - we was going to have the big white thing here but since maddi i suppose i've kinda changed how i feel and disney is our special place, we go to florida and paris regularly, before maddi :) so it seemed perfect and i can't wait to show maddi it when she's old enough so it just kinda fitted well :) thanks honey :hug:

    What a great thread.

    Well we are going to look at trying this time next year as we have been together almost 10 years and have been married 7 years in feb. We were both a bit scared to take that step but now I am sooooo broodie. I thought I was pregnant a couple of months ago so was really upset to find I wasnt :(

    Well I have a year to do the following:
    1. Move house
    2. Set up a dog grooming business
    3. Get fit and healthy
    4. Start a baby fund

    p.s does anyone know how to get all those cool icons? I am pretty new to this and am jealous of all these cool faces etc you all have on your messages

    We have only been married 4 months so we are waiting til we've been married a little longer before TTC (although I would love to start now!)

    So my list is
    1. Do up the house so it's how we want it
    2. Save some more money so I can take a longer maternity leave when the time comes
    3. Lose 10 pounds (this is always on any wish list I make!)
    4. Enjoy some couple time before TTC
