I used to be a member here in 2005 just after my daughter was born. I loved EB while going through all my ttc, pregnancy, birth, baby stages with my three. I was in my early twenties then. Now i've found myself back here reading the ttc threads because i am so excited to start ttc my last, but out first together with my new partner. Although this time i'll be doing it in my early thirties because we've planned to wait a year or two but i am, sooo clucky.

We sometimes chat about baby names and what our child will look like and how exciting it will be when our kids are a bit older and can enjoy a new brother or sister. I am sticking to our plan but it's very exciting to imagine experiencing all of it with him.  OK back to dream land i go. Best wishes to all who are ttc, i understand the excitement of peeing on a stick and waiting for that little line that changes your life. original.gif If there's anyone else in the same position, (waiting to ttc) feel free to say hi.

I'm a bit the same.
was here TTC 2005-2008 . But find myself back here  reading about TTC but this time with my new husband. we both have 2 kids each but dont have any together. Its exciting and I am getting more clucky by the week but we have agreed to wait a smidge longer.

I cant wait for the excitement but I do hope its not a long jouney. It took 2.5 years to get my DD and we already have decided if it dont happen then so be it. Both are happy with our own kids would just be nice to have a together child.

hi lisa original.gif

wow, we are in similar situations aren't we?  We've decided to wait for a few reasons.

We only have kids kids every second weekend, but they just recently moved interstate with their mother. We are planning to move so we can be near them. Also i recently began working at a new company and so therefore have no maternity leave or anything yet. We'd also like my youngest to get through his first year at school without adding a sibling to it all.

Oh and we are also very happy right now just enjoying 'being togther'. but still, it is exciting and i am looking forward to it all. original.gif


best wishes to you when the time comes. I think the trying part will be a little scary as it took a while (12 months)for me to fall pregnant with my daughter and i will be ten or so years older this time ohmy.gif but i agree with your attitude that if it doesn't happen then so be it. cool.gif

A suggestion has been made to make this a private group do to others knowing others but not wanting them to know whats discuss which is fair. I'm not sure we can do that on EB but I'm happy to create a Invite only FB group.  Feel free to PM me if u would join
