    This is just a random idea I just had, so feel free to delete this, but it feels like "Getting to Know You" is a more than just a child thread of Spam, and it's a bit irksome when the Spam forum looks like it has a new post only for that post to be in GTKY.

    Age: 34

    Relationship status: Soon to be living with partner


    How long until TTC: Maybe a few years, no set time.

    Reasons for WTT:
    - Need us time first with me moving to be with him soon.
    - Need to get his career sorted out. And me earning more.
    - He needs a vasectomy reversal to even try. :-(


    Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC:
    - Get healthier and lose some weight.
    - Have time with my partner just us and get more used to his kids when they visit weekly.
    - Have some fun.
    - Try not to go crazy with all this in my head and wondering what if all the time.



    How many children would you like: 2

    when pg...

    Do you have a gender preference? Girl first choice as my partner has two boys already and one girl, and I'd love to have a girl, but I'd love a boy as well. Would like one of each.


    Finding out the gender or team yellow? Would like the surprise, but don't know if I could wait to find out.

    Any names you like? Lots but knowing my luck I'll never have a baby. Faith or maybe Hope for a girl though, as that's what we'd have to have to even try.

    Relationship status: Married


    How long until TTC: A month(ish)

    Reasons for WTT:
    Am in the middle of a pack of pills, so I thought it would make more sense to get to the end of a pack rather than stop in the middle.

    Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC:
    Finish a few bits for our house (crafty things) so that I'm not having to juggle those later!


    How many children would you like: 2

    when pg...

    Do you have a gender preference?
    Not really... whenever I've imagined having children they've been girls, but I feel that's more because most young children/babies in my family over the last 10 years have been girls so I'm more used to that. Husband's family has mostly had boys though, so I've thought about that more and more recently (plus we have some lovely names for boys)!

    Finding out the gender or team yellow?
    Spent most of my adulthood saying I'd want to find out, but now it's actually a real possibility that I'll have a baby in the next couple of years, I'm leaning more towards the surprise!

    Any names you like?
    Many! We totally agree on boy's names but not so much for girls!:roll:

    How long until TTC: December 2017

    Reasons for WTT:
    Getting off BC in 5 days - using BBT for NTNP - I want to address any fertility issues now before actively trying. Using BBT will help me to establish whether ovulation is taking place and having my cycle as normal as possible post BC before TTC will ease some of the pressure
    Also, DH wants to go skiing in December hence why we are only TTC then. He doesn't want to risk me being pregnant and falling for fear that we might lose the baby if I were pregnant by then


    Anything you want to accomplish while in WTT, before TTC:
    - I want to eat healthier and exercise more often
    - Have ridiculously good looking skin with no pimples (LOL just haaad to throw that in there)
    - I just want to make sure that my body is in the best possible shape so that I can give my little bundle the best possible start in life
    - Also, it would be great getting to know my body and how it works in its unique way



    How many children would you like: 2

    when pg...

    Do you have a gender preference?
    Ideally I would like a boy first then a girl. I love the idea of having an older brother to look after his younger sister but either way, all is in God's capable hands. For them to be healthy and happy is all that matters to me in the end.


    Finding out the gender or team yellow?
    I'm definitely team yellow! I loooove surprises!!

    Any names you like?
    My son will be Melchior and my daughter Melandri

    Reasons for WTT: Want to get well into my studies before trying, need to structure my life and get my finances in shape.

    when pg...

    Do you have a gender preference? No
    Finding out the gender or team yellow? I would want to know, but I am a fan of gender-neutral baby stuff. Have friends who have been told they were having a girl and ended up having a boy. Also it is nice to not force gender stereotypes on babies.
    Any names you like? Isaac and Anne.
