Hi there,

I'm a newbie so I thought I'd introduce myself :)

I'm Vickie (26) and my DH is Stephen (27) and we live in Cape Town, South Africa. We've been maried for almost 2 years and we've decided to start TTC in September this year. Now it's a matter of finding a way to pass the time and keep the baby fever in check while we wait to TTC :)

We both feel emotionally ready to start a family now but there are a couple of factors that made us decide to wait for a little while. Dh is working in a job where he gets a small set salary and the rets of his income is commision based (ie not too reliable). I have a well paying job and medical cover etc. We want to wait until Dh has a new, more financially stable job before TTC. I'd ideally like to be a SAHM.

The other factor is that I'm currently trying to loose weight. I'd like to be at my goal weight, or close to it, by the time we TTC. I've lost 20lbs so far and have 37lbs to go before I'm at goal.

I saw that you were from Wisconsin. I actually did mention that in my response to your intro, but I didn't read this first. :) I meant to respond last night but I was sooo tired! (Didn't help me fall asleep though. :))
