Plans for 2008

Postby oostevens » Tue Jan 01, 2008 5:50 pm

Hi guys!!!

Just letting you all know, that the gorgeous hubby and I are going to start trying for baby #1 in about a months time :)

Anyone got any advice in regards to trying to conceive?

Its all a lil scary but also exciting.

I don't reckon I will fall for a while though, as I am currently on the pill. But we are hoping to either fall pregnant this year or have a baby this year. Shall see what God has planned :)

Just thought I would share the news and ask for any advice :) A fair few of you on here are mothers :) And I would love some support through this too :)
[*RACHEL*]

YOU CAN DOOO IT!!!!!

A huge CONGRATS thats great news. We are also going to start trying. We tired last year but was unsuccessful plus I need to be at my new job for year to get mat leave so we stopped

My only advice to you is to just try without getting into deep with all the numbers and stuff. go with it, have fun while trying. Then if you havnt fallen pregnant in a few months start looking at dates etc, it gets very confusing

Good luck with it all

Good luck with your baby plans, Rachel! How exciting!

My plans are much more mundane. My PhD is going to take up most of my time and I have to complete the associated applied project by October.

Health-wise I want to get down to at least 65kg by the end of the year and I'm hoping to compete in a fun-run or half marathon depending on whether my plantar fasciitis has cleared up or not.

Other than that I want to get back into art as a hobby. I want to sketch more and start oil-painting. First I need to save up to buy the materials!

yes i think that's what i did last time we decided to try (thank God we didn't fall, we were not in a good position financially).

this time its a bit less stressful.

I have a job, and i have been there well it will be 1yr this january the 17th :) and hubby is getting good pay rises and we have been married for 2yrs this april.

thanks guys for being excited for me :)

Oops, sorry, missed the advice request totally!

My only advice would be to go to a doctor for a pre-pregnancy blood screen to make sure you have good levels of folate, iron and all the rest. I saw a doctor a year ago and told them of my plans to have a bay (now shelved because of the PhD) and they gave me an information sheet and did tests to make sure my rubella innoculations were up to date.

Good luck and sorry for misreading your post yet again! (I'm good at that unfortunately!)

Glad I'm not the only one! I wish I could blame a post NYE hangover for misreading posts today, but I really didn't drink that much. Just my usual daftness coming to the fore!

lols... me and my wife didn't have a clue... after she conceived we just went with the flow... didn't bother about those anti matal classes etc :wink: we were in London at the time and anyway when my boy was born and the midwife showed us how to bath him and gave him to me to finish... I'm just like "hold the boat" - was huge shock to the system... this little bundle was suddenly in our care... scarey :shock:
