    My nice big tax check is usually only $700 LOL! I used to work as a casual in retail about 25hrs a week. so $700 was a nice top up to my savings.

    has anyone else had issues trying to access bubhub? Over the last 3-4 days I'm sure bubhub was down and my urges were extra strong and I had no outlet LOL!! I caught up with a friend who's just had her second baby and it didn't help my ability to think about anything else. She did give me a blow by blow in graphic detail of her birth (which she finds the easiest thing in the world to do!) and how it all works and what happens. She is very into all things organic and natural so she had a water birth at a birth center. She went into labour at 3.30am woke her husband up at 5am, they arrived at the birth center 20 minutes later, she jumped into the tub and bam the baby was born at 6.10am. She had a little fatty...9 pounds...She was back at home at 9.30am in time to make her other child breakfast! I was shocked at the whole thing! I'm not sure I would do that, actually I know I wouldn't do that but I commend her for making it as normal as running up to coles to grab milk!

    I'm hearing you there Disney. I was having a mini meltdown.
    Your friend seems like a bit of a warrior I know I definitely couldn't do something like that.
    Still know idea on whether my ttc date has been set back but have organised to have a big talk to DP when he gets home tonight. Any suggestions on how to approach this because I'm very nervous?

    Hi guys hope you don't mind if I join! So glad I saw this thread I thought I was crazy and silly hanging around. FH and I are getting married at the start of November and if it was up to him we would start trying then :P but we've agreed to wait until the middle of 2013 or so as we would like to do one more holiday so we're thinking skiing in NZ since I won't be able to do that again for a while!

    Love the thought of a March/April baby but I'm absolutely terrified that I won't be able to fall pregnant which is silly really since we're both young and healthy.

    Welcome sjk! I reckon the more the merrier, especially when we all start getting BFPs!

    Disney, I could get to the site but I couldn't read any threads, just their titles, oh man the suspence! Your friend had a birth exactly how I would love my next one to be! There is no way I am hanging around the hospital this time, the birth was just about perfect but afterwards no way, I'm sleeping in my own bed with DS and DH beside me.

    SWW I recently had to put my TTC date back. I had planned to start trying again in August, but DH was just not ready, I was so angry at him especially as I do 80% of the work with DS and am still up 4 times a night with him. I realise it is for the best now but it took me months to come to terms with it. I think I was just too pushy with it all. I was always talking TTC, and it freaked him out. I am glad we have made a joint decision to start in May. How did your talk go?

    I would try an approach it in a manner that you DP will understand. So for example if he is very financially minded then approach it from that angle, if he is travel minded then put it in terms of travel plans etc.. does that make sence? So for example my DH at the moment is very focused on travel so i would put my case to him that you can still travel with babies and then show him evidence of this, there was a great article in the paper about a family who travelled to tokyo with a baby and they said how easy it was.

    Welcome sjk!!! Your totally not crazy for stalking here, you are now with like-minded people who are lusting after a baby and are yet to have that fulfilled!! LOL. We are planning our one last holiday at the moment too which is exciting. We are looking at heading to the states at the end of the year and we too are looking at mid 2013 TTC. I have the same thoughts about 'oh gosh what happens if we dont fall pregnant right away, what if somethings wrong'. I have come to the conclusion that if you happy and healthy and fit and are in the right head space what will be will be!!

    Trio - thats interesting you say that you would like a birth like my friends! Has it got something to do with already having a child before?? Is that why you want to go right away? What didnt you like about staying in hospital the first time.. In my mind im sure its quite different to the reality so i'd be interested to find out.

    In my mind i'm lying about in my fancy hospital room surrounded by bunches of flowers and cupcakes and people come to visit me and tell me how great i look and how cute my baby is. I get my food brought to me, i dont have to think about cleaning and cooking and i can chill out just basking in the glory of being a mum!
