But DH has finally agreed to TTC - we have been together for five years, married this April. When we first got together he was dead set against a baby Tightropes (DH's Mum passed away when he was 4, has big issues about it) but over the last year we've been talking and he's now set for it - so much so he's prepared to be a SAHD if we manage it. It's a huge turnaround and I am so happy we can begin trying!
I'm expecting it to be difficult - I am 35 and DH is 36, both of us have drank and smoked for years... which we are now about to start quitting, and getting healthy. I've had a Mirena in for the last 7 years and our practice nurse tells me the hormonal element of birth control will have run out a couple of years ago so god willing there won't be any birth controls to rule out.
I know others here have been TTC for a long time - I am just hoping and looking forward to some support and cameraderie with MNers in the same position. Hoping all of you have a BFP v soon x
