Hi! I’m Anne and I guess I’m in a bit of a different situation then most ladies here; I’m actually single but WTT. I’ve been lurking for a while but I didn’t know if I should post as I wasn’t sure that I would fit in. I have been reading a lot of posts however and you seem to be a very welcoming board with members from all walks of life.

Welcome to the board!!!

I was in your shoes once, and had actually said that if I hadn't found "Mr Right" by the time I was 30 I would go the road you are thinking about. Luckily for me Mr Right came along shortly before I turned 30. Granted, with waiting for Mr Right, then waiting for the proposal and waiting for the wedding I'm now looking at a 7 year age gap between kiddos. But I'm happy with my choice and as long as you are happy with yours, that's all that matters.

Well there are plenty of girls out there who have babies in your situation - and all situations - without a plan or care, so I say you're ahead of many!

Is your male friend going to be involved with raising the baby, or he is a short-term, errr, "supplier" ;-)

Welcome to the board! I too am in a different situation than 99% of those here. My husband died in May and we had froze sperm prior to his chemo treatments so we could have kids and I plan on using that sometime this year to have our babies. SO I too will be a single momma! I think its good that you have the resources available as that will be key for ya! Good luck on your wait! The gals here are awesome!
RIP James. I love you!!


RIP James, my husband my hero

Hi Anne! Welcome to the board. Others have already responded with what I was going to say, which is that we have had others WTT to be a single mom before. It sounds like a really tough choice! Do you have family and good friends nearby? I think that would be key.

I'm Becki, I'm 24 and my DH Paul and I are WTT our first, hopefully this fall, but who knows. I'm mostly waiting for him to be ready - sometimes he's all excited about babies and sometimes he doesn't want to talk about it at all.

Hi Anne and welcome to the board! As you can see from previous responses, the WTT definition is pretty broad, and so I hope you feel like this is a place you can continue to come to while you wait!

I'm Jay, 25, and DF and I will be waiting until summer 2011 to try for our first. I look forward to seeing you around the board, and getting to know you!

Hi & welcome! This is definitely a welcoming board. :-) From previous posts, you can see there are people in all different situations. It's a great board to be a part of for sure! :-)


I'm Kimberly (24) & my s/o is Stephen (26). I'm not entirely sure how long I'm waiting until TTC, as we want to be married first, and more settled. But hopefully not too much longer. I really wanted to start trying this year, but that's not looking like an option. :-)


I just want to add I think it's great your standing strong with your choice. You seem like your in a great situation to raise a

Thank you all for your warm welcome. I might not be able to post as much as I would like for the time being (my computer at home is fried) but I am really happy to be here.
