Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking around this board for a while now and I've posted a couple of times but never properly introduced myself so I thought it was about time.

My name is Bonny, I'm 29 and my DH is 30. We don't have any kids but we've decided to start TTC in August. We had been thinking November but moved it up a couple of months as the reason we're waiting is mainly financial but it will work out the same anyway. Plus, you never know how long it will take once you start trying.

I didn't think that I really had baby fever like everyone describes but I guess I kind of do. I've spent I don't know how many hours reading journals and postings and I've researched everything I can think of to do with pregnancy etc (I'm a planner). We've been waiting for a while already but its just the last few months where it seems to occupy my thoughts a lot and now that we have this date it just seems like time is passing so slowly (even though it is not really as in hindsight it flies by). I'm sure August will be here in no time, I think it is just that I think about it so often it makes it seem like it is taking forever!

Anyway, just wanted to say hello to everyone. Looking forward to getting to know you in the next while.

Hi Bonny! Welcome to the board, congrats on setting a date!! What do you do for a living?

My name is Becki, I'm 24 and my DH Paul is 26. We're waiting to TTC our first too, but we don't have a date yet - thinking maybe next year, but we're waiting until he's ready and we can afford daycare.

You should join the TTC May-August group down in the buddy threads. Looking forward to seeing you around the board.

Hi Becki,

Thanks for the welcome.

For a living I work on a boat. It kind of complicates things as it means I will have to quit my job if I get pregnant. How about you? I kind of remember from previous posts something to do with journalism? Is that correct?

I'll pop over to the May - August buddy group and introduce myself there as well.

Hi Bonny! Welcome to the board!

I'm Victoria, 28 and we're WTT our first! When I first joined the board last April, I thought we'd TTC in 2011-12, but we pushed it back many times now. We have a big move to go through first and see how stable our situation is. We've never owned a house, but that won't prevent us from having a baby, as DH is 41.

I'm looking forward to chatting with you in the buddy group! :)

Yup, I am a journalist for a small community newspaper. I think it will be a good job to have with kids, it's pretty flexible hour-wise and I should be able to work from home, if they let me.

I'm getting married in August, and let me tell you -- time is FLYING by on my end, so I'm sure your TTC date will be here before you know it! :-D


This is a great board to pass the time while you wait!

Hi Bonny,
Welcome to the board. I know that those last few months seem to go sooo slow. We actually started TTC 2 months early because I couldn't wait ;) Anyway, welcome again and I hope the summer flies by so you can get this show on the road!
