Hi ladies!

Just curious to see how old mothers to be are for their first baby.

I'm just 23, hubby and I got married just a month ago but been together just over a couple of years. He is desperate for kids, and the more I think about it the more I really want something of ours togethersmile hubby has a 6 year old from a previous relationship who doesn't live with us but me and my new step son are building up a brilliant bondsmile

Would be interesting to see all the different relationship situationssmile

Look forward to reading repliessmile

We're any of you on any contraception before trying? smile how is your sex drive? I've got to admit I am definitely more up for it! Hope I'm not being too invasive!

gillian1986 Mon 04-Mar-13 20:02:45

I was on the pill (yasmin) for 10 years.... came off the pill in december and im also more up for it... but that is probably because we are ttc so its kinda more exciting for me knowing that we could be making a baby!
Hubby is happy cos hes getting more sex haha xx

MrsBigBadBeck Mon 04-Mar-13 20:14:18

Hello again Gillian! I am defo more up for it an it is so much more enjoyable! Must be psychologicalsmile

We are getting married in August (does that count, too?), but have been together for ten years. I turned 30 a few weeks ago. shock We've been ttc for ages,...not stopping now. Pregnant bride or not...I don't give a toss anymore. blush

ELA88 Mon 04-Mar-13 20:18:28

I was on the pill for 10 years (microgynon then mercilon) and stopped taking it beginning of January. My dh is always up for it like 24/7 so he's happy that I'm wanting it most nights! It is exciting knowing it might be making a baby though! Xx

MrsBigBadBeck Mon 04-Mar-13 20:18:51

Yeah that countssmile haha my hubby wanted me pregnant from day one and didn't care if I was a preggers bride or not. I guess if you 'blossom' you'll look even better than most brides! smilesmilesmile

MrsBigBadBeck Mon 04-Mar-13 20:20:14

Bartlet4America Mon 04-Mar-13 21:15:32

cookielove Mon 04-Mar-13 21:20:22

Hello, I got married in sept and we have been trying almost straight away however with more umph since jan.

MrsBigBadBeck Mon 04-Mar-13 21:26:44

Wow lots of babies trying to be made! Maybe some of us may meet if our kiddywinks make friends! smile

Frizz1986 Tue 05-Mar-13 09:11:25

I get married in less than 5 weeks. Have been excited about having kids for a long time and my plan was to start ttc at the start of the year, but then we got engaged in august so decided that we would wait a bit so I didn't have a bump at the wedding. I am trying to test out when the dp wants to start ttc as I would be happy to start this cycle as if we did conceive cycle 1 I wouldn't show at the wedding etc but not sure if dp will want to get the wedding out of the way before ttc.
I am way too excited and want to get started as am aware it will prob take months of ttc.

Im 24 and got married in July 2012 and im now 30 weeks pregnant! So got ourselves a little honeymoon baby.
We started trying about this time last year, but baby obviously wanted to be born out of marriage haha.
I hated the 2 week wait and every month it got worse, but keep positive! Its the best feeling in the world when you get a BFP! I was on the pill and it took awhile for my cycle to sort itself out. I reccomend the clearblue fertility monitor, was really struggling then bought this in July and got preggo in august!! Turns out we were 'doing it' on the wrong days and that I was fertile a few days after I thought.
Good luck!

Hello, can I join please?

I'm 29 and got married last year, this is our first month of trying. I've got OPKs etc. Exciting but also nervous that we'll be trying for months. It's so hard to accept that you don't really know what's going on, or how long it'll take.

TTC1Madness Tue 05-Mar-13 10:12:32

Hello!! Would I be able to join please? I need somewhere to get away from the madness that is TTC. We have been married 8 months.. I have cycles from 28 days to 31 days. I'm on CD 10 today and have started to use the clearblue ovulation digi sticks with no smiley face today sad Just trying to DTD every other day... OH thinks he has won the lottery!

Zumbasmyfave Tue 05-Mar-13 10:44:25

Hi all!
I am 27, got married in september and been TTC since december. We've been together nearly 9 yrs!
Good luck gill when you gonna poas?
Congrats Balmain!
Hi Frizz I felt the same in the run up to my wedding but having been on the pill for years I wasn't sure what my hormones/periods would do or if I got preganant the sickness.. So I personally thought it best to wait till after my honeymoon (which was november-Thailand :-)) and as it turns out my periods haven't come back yet :-/ so it's not happended as quickly as I'd hoped..I guess you can't know what's the best thing to do but just do what feel right for you!
Cookie what day did you get married? My wedding was the 1st

gilly86 Tue 05-Mar-13 10:59:20

TTC1Madness you and me are pretty much at the same point on our cycles!
CD11 for me today and my cycles are anything from 28-31 days as well!
All my calculations and phone apps suggest THIS WEEK is the week I should be dtd (plus Monday,Tuesday next week as well)... So dtd as much as poss until next Tuesday and to be honest will try and carry on with that til AF is due! (We don't dtd every day but hopefully every other day!)
I also have OPKs - yesterday and today both negative. Going to carry on using them this month though and see what happens!
I came off the pill in December after 10 years on yasmin. Got married in December and now TTC.
Wasn't really TTC in January... We were on honeymoon and obviously dtd but wasn't thinking too much about TTC and I hadn't even had a true period yet at that point.

FromagePlease Tue 05-Mar-13 13:16:28

Just a tip with the OPKs, I peed on mine early evening when I was sure I was ovulating (mild ache and just 'felt' it) but got a negative. Really disappointed. Later that same evening I had the right mucus (sorry if TMI) so did another cheeky test and it was positive! I'm now on the 2WW.

cookielove Tue 05-Mar-13 13:22:47

zumbasmyfave I got married on the 1st to grin

I have been avoiding using opk's but think I may crack soon blush

I am on another thread, which I can link to when I get home which is really so supportive.

MrsBigBadBeck Tue 05-Mar-13 13:36:11

How long should I leave it before trying a OPK? Only stopped my pill on Sunday (that was my first pill free day) still haven't started my period but last week had major signs that I was going to come onsad
