    Hi all,

    My name is Amy, I'm 28 years old and my DH and I are expecting our first baby (girl) around 18th June 2016. I've been with my DH for 8 years this year - we married in May 2015 in Las Vegas during a 2 week road-trip across the USA. We live in North Lincs along with our 2 pet Degus.

    I work for a manufacturing company in office based project management. My maternity leave will begin around the end of April 2016 - I decided to take all of my accrued leave for this year in a one-er before my maternity starts.

    Outside of work I enjoy baking, cooking and going to the gym/swimming. My DH and I are also avid campers, enjoy being outdoors and have recently become National Trust members. I'm also really into photography, especially nature and wildlife. We're quite sociable people but equally like sitting at home, chilling out and playing video games :)

    Pleased to meet you! :hug:

    Oooh apologies, I thought I had replied to this! Apparently not!

    Thank you very much! How did you find Vegas? We loved it and are hoping to go back some day.

    Thank you! Do you have any degus of your own? We have 2 boys called Daniel and Sean.

    Aww how adorable! No degus for me, I have whippets and a high prey drive. I have had an African Pygmy Hedgehog and a chinchilla as well as the usual hoard of guinea pigs and birds and hamsters etc! xx

    Oooh whippets! Love them :) Chins have always appealed to me as well - maybe one day :)
    We've had a menagerie of rats over the years too, (19 total) also 2 ferrets and another 2 degus. Our boys we have now were their brothers.

    We had an amazing time too. Did you do the Grand Canyon? We did the sunset helicopter ride- words can not even describe! X

    Wow, sounds cool we didn't go there.

    If you get chance to go back definitely do the canyon. It's pricey but worth it. We flew over the Hoover dam and the pilot tells you all the history and we were talking about Area 51 and then you land in the canyon, have a champagne picnic, fly over a national park and then over the strip at sunset!
