My name is Melissa I am 37 and Df is 38 we have been together since June 2009 engaged December 2011. We are ttc #1 for 2 cycles now. I worked as a nurse but due to my endometriosis being so bad back in 2005 my Dr told me I should not be doing any more shift work so in 2008 I went back to school and took a Medical Office assistant program, but since we live in Nova Scotia, Canada, the Dr's are scarce and it is nearly impossible to find work in that field atm.

We have 6 fur babies 5 cats and 1 dog they all found us we were not looking to find them, but I would not change it for the world.They are all spoiled rotten, and I am positive they will all be so jealous when we do have a baby,it will be total chaos lol

Hello ladies!

My name is Vicky, I am 23 and my husband is 31. We have been married since July 2012 (9 months) and together for 5 years. Hubby is English, I am Greek and we live in England. We met when I was 15 in Corfu as my grandparents are from there and used to take me every summer and he used to holiday there with his mates and we were just friends. We stayed in touch for years but could never meet as I was young and had school etc so after a while we stopped talking. 3 years later when I was 18 and had finished school, I decided to visit England, for holiday and at that point he decided o suddenly call me again after a very long time, it was very random. I told him I was coming over and he came to meet me and pick me up. We ran into each other's arms and have been together ever since. We spent over a year with Andrew (hubby) flying to Greece every other weekend and me working hard to help him pay some flights. Then, over a year later, Andrew asked my dad for my hand in marriage and he surprised me with an engagement ring and a proposal. At that point I packed my things and moved to England and we have been living together since then. We planned our wedding for 2012 as we needed money to get our own house, I needed a driving licence, a car, a job etc. When that was sorted, we started putting money aside for the wedding which happened yaaay on time, in Greece where we met, on the exact day we met 7/7.

I really didn't want a baby and they used to really freak me out until recently. All of a sudden for no reason I started loving them and get all excited every time I see one, I just want to have them for myself lol. End of January, I had to come off the pill half way though the month cause it started making me sick for some crazy reason that no one knows. It never did! Because of that, and circumstances we thought I had got pregnant and I just loved the idea! Andrew wanted one as soon as we got married, but I was saying no. The thought that I was pregnant though made me so happy and so protective and I just loved the whole thing and the thought of having a baby. And looking at Andrew I now find it sooo sweet cause he would make a wonderful daddy, he would be the best! We both got soooo disappointed when AF came. So that was the point we started trying. Beginning of Feb. It has only been nearly 2 months but now I just really want one and got really upset, I was even crying (I know pathetic well I cry lol) when I got a bfn the last 2 times! They say third time lucky lol.

We love animals, we have a dog Bruno, 2 cats Wesley and Lola and a hamster Flash. They are all our babies and we couldn't live without them.

We enjoy travelling! We love visiting other countries and we have been so far and we want to take our baby/kid on holiday in different places every year and have amazing family holidays.

We are Christians (orthodox), I have been baptised in Greece and Andrew was baptised in the local christian orthodox church here in England and we do attend church on sundays. We visit Greece often to see my family and we would like our baby, when we have it, to have a part of both caltures and appreciate both and speak both languages. It will be lovely when we all go to Greece for easter or we spend Christmas here all together as a family.

We are very social and like having people over the house. Most weekends we have guests over for dinner or we go over someone's house for dinner. We also love movies and cinema and comedy tv series. Personal favourites: Twilight, Lord of the rings, Spiderman, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Shrek, Madagascar, Ice Age, all Disney movies lol, How I met your mother, Big Bang Theory, Gavin and Stacey (british, absolutely love it), don't tell the bride and OUR WEDDING DVD LOL.

I play piano and guitar (studdied music in Greece for 10 years when I was little)and on our free time my husband and I record music together, he plays guitar and I play piano and sing etc. I also horse ride once a month and love it (which will have to stop for nine months if I get my bfp, but it is something I am prepared to give up). Celebrities: LOVE BON JOVI and Johny Depp.

I work part time in Currys (electrical store) but I was just offered a full time contract starting in April which I taking. I want to gather as much money as possible for when we have a little one :-). Andrew is the training manager in Dixons head office (largest company of electrical retail in Europe). He has been employed with Dixons for 15 years, started as a warehouse boy in the store and now is a head office manager. I am sooo proud of him :-).

One last thing, I love games and girly things. When we see our nieces I just sit down and play barbies with them hahaha so if we have a little girl then I found my new best friend hahahaha. So here is my essay, I think I covered everything. Fingers crossed for anyone who wants a baby! Good luck. Dying to test soon!

My name is Danielle. I am 30. DH is Tracy and he is 39. We got married on August 21, 2010. This is a second marriage for both of us. I have 2 sons from my previous and he has 3 daughters. On January 27, 2011, Tracy adopted my two sons. He is a great father. One year ago tomorrow (March 27, 2012) I traveled to North Carolina and had a tubal reversal done. We have been trying ever since. I had a chemical in November and then last cycle I also had a loss (I don't know if I should consider it a chemical or an early miscarriage...either way it was a loss and it sucks!) We live in Nebraska. We just bought a new house and will be closing on it at the end of next month! YAY!!!! We are going to continue trying and if we don't have any luck...we will probably begin looking into adoption or maybe even foster care, as I was in foster care when I was a child and I know how important it is for these kids to have a good home.

I am Sarah Jane (30) and DH is RJ (28) we have been together for 10yrs and married for 4 1/2 yrs. We have DS named Russell (4). I'm an RN work night shift in the ICU (I only work like 2 shifts a week). My work schedule revolves around DH's work schedule. DH is a firefighter/paramedic for a large fire dept in TN. I love to bake, read books, go to church, be involved in our Sunday School class, help others, and write letters/cards (to send through the mail). We have been TTC since October 2011 once DH got the all clear from his doctors (DH had testicular cancer in 2011 had to go through 2 surgeries and 3 cycles of chemo). We just met with RE this past Friday and found out the chemo affected his remaining testicle more than we thought. So this is our last cycle of not being monitored. I have my hsg tomorrow (Wednesday) and meet up with the RE on April 5th to come up with a game plan. Whew!!! Sorry that I wrote so much and hope I didn't write too much!!

My name is Leslie and DH is Matt, we are both almost 27 We have been together for almost 8 years and married for almost 7 years I am a SAHW and DH is Active Duty Air Force. We live in Colorado and love it so much. Before I stayed at home full time, I worked in business and loved my job. When we moved a bit further away from home/family due to DH's new duty station, we wanted to have more time together and thought that a kiddo would come soon afterwards. We did the NTNP for about 3 years before we started TTC full time in Dec 2010.
I love to cook and bake!! I am a huge gamer and love to play WoW with my hubby. We are truly kids at heart and are best friends. We met in college in a botany class when we were paired as lab partners.

Although I want a baby so badly, if I am only ever blessed with DH my life is truly complete.

My name is Allie (30) Dh is Seth (41). I currently live in western Kentucky and my Dh works out of state and is currently in California. We have 2 sons Zachariah who would be 8 this year but he was born at 23 weeks and passed. Greyson is 5 almost 6. We have a dog, cat, turtle and 5 fish.

I am 2 semesters away from graduating with my Masters in clinical mental health counseling and recently got hired on as chemical dependency therapist for the agency I am interning with. I also work at the public defenders office here with the social worker in the office finding and helping criminal offenders get into rehab and begin recovery. Eventually (in another year!) I will be a licensed therapist and I hope to work with chemically dependent clients for the most part but also have an interest in couple and sex therapy.

This is our 3rd cycle TTC and I am hoping it is our last!

Hey everyone! Loved reading about everyone!

I'm Blair (31) and dh is 35. We have been married 5 years and we have the coolest 2.5 year old! Molly! We have 1 fur baby- Presley- our yorkie. Our little Molly was created with the help of our amazing dr! And we have sought out his help again! We have been actively ttc #2 since January 2012. We had ectopic pregnancy in fall of 2011- by total surprise- since we were told we couldn't have babies on our own!
Both dh and I have businesses. He owns an ad agency and I have a children's boutique! I don't have a ton of free time because between the store and a 2.5, I care for my mother was has cancer. We stay on the road ALOT! But I'm honored to care for her!
Molly and I participate in Strollfit (a work out with baby). We love to do play dates! Personally, I enjoy sewing and monogramming and working in my yard. I love greys anatomy, scandal and the walking dead, teen mom- am I too old for it?, and real housewives of anything! (odd mix I know). I'm sure there is more, but that's all I can think of this late!

Good luck to everyone!!
