We've had a few new people join recently, some of whom are lurkers, so I thought it would be nice to start a getting to know you thread and hope more lurkers come out to play!
I'm DS, I'm 30 and have been married to H since April 2010. I've got a boy who's 2 and a girl who is 6 weeks tomorrow. I'm a secondary ICT teacher, and have 2 pugs and 2 chickens that add to the chaos in the DS household. I'm a Leo and my favourite colour is burgundy. I also live in Essex.

I'm not really a newbie but have stuck mainly to the TTC threads before now.
I'm Mrs Mack, 26, married H in May 2012 and started ttc our first around October last year. We are currently 4/5 weeks pregnant and waiting for the first midwife appt to be confirmed. Cautiously excited!
I'm an admin assistant in an accountants office and cannot wait for maternity leave hehe x
I'm 31, got married in 2005. I have 3 girls, one is 5, one is 2 & half, one is 17 months. I'm currently a SAHM, on a career break until my youngest starts school. We have one cat. I'm a Leo and my fav colour is red. I live in Wales.

Im Estrellita (Spanish for little star) and i joined a couple of weeks ago. Was on hitched when wedding planning in 2006 but more a lurker and didnt realise i could transfer my user details over here so i would have more posts! Im 32, been married for almost 7 years and live in Manchester with H, our yellow labrador and E who is exactly 6 months old today! Im a Sagittarius (fiery, feisty and fabulous!) and love tennis, reading, photography and scrapbooking
I'm 35, generally found on the DTTC bench about to start Clomid for IUI. I got married in September 2011 and started TTC after I finished my next Pill packet after the wedding. I'm a speech therapist by day and have a beautiful rescue cat called Merlin who keeps me entertained and is probably the unofficial child in the house until we get a real one!

I'm another ttc poster... I'm 25 and married for 4 months. I've been with my H for 8.5 years and we started ttc'ing for our first baby in November but my long, irregular cycles are complicating things. I'm an August birthday and from my username my favourite colour is obviously purple - we have two guinea pigs (Marshall & Oscar aged 3) and a maltese x yorkie puppy called Sid (its his first birthday on Saturday)

I'm Marmite. I'm 30 and I have a nine month old daughter, Evie. I live with E, my H and our cat Bumblebee. I'm currently on maternity leave but also have my own (tiny) little business on fb - Bashful Bug.
I like slings, blw, co-sleeping and cloth nappies and I'm always open to answering any questions on them.

I'm Weather Girl. I'm 28 years old and have been married for just over 3 years. We have a little boy who's just turned 1 and I'm currently a SAHM.

I'm Knees. I still have a Christmas avatar which transferred over from Hitched because MD doesn't like my work's version of internet explorer and won't let me change it!
I'm 30 in a couple of weeks' time and 16 weeks pregnant with our first. I'm a solicitor, which I hate.
My work means I don't get to post as much as I'd like to.

I've been around for quite a few years now on the other side. I used to wonder how people stuck around so long or had high post counts!!!
I'm 30 and live in SE London with my little family. I have my forever baby Theo who I lost shortly after he was born and Eleni (almost 3!!!!) and Jonah (almost 2!!!) and our cat Otto. I've also found myself going for this a fourth time and am currently waiting for an early scan to check this little bean is ok. I've been through a bit of a crap time and had various episodes of depression, PND, and generally feeling a neurotic failure but we (mostly) come out the other side so the is hope! :-)

I work full time in the city which is hard enough in itself, but doing it at the same time as being a mum is even harder! I have great in laws and family to help out and I am very lucky x

I'm Deedee, I'm 37 and I've been married for 5.5 years to MrDD, and we have a little boy C, who will be 4 in April!! I work 4 days a week in IT supporting the finance side of our ERP system.
Some of the things I have experienced are bleeding and spotting throughout the first tri, long labour resulting in syntocinon drip, epidural, and ventouse birth with extended 2nd degree tear, PTSD, PND and ADs. I also did BLW, BF for over 2 years, co-sleeping, and used slings.
We are probably going to TTC #2 this year which I'm excited and also very scared about, particularly labour, and will no doubt be asking all sorts of questions about second labours and ELCS, which will probably be my preference.
In my spare time I love to sing and my absolute favourite colour is purple!

Hi all, I'm MissDeeDee (no relation to Deedee!!) I'm 30, my H is 35, we've been married since April 2010. We've been TTC our first since Sept and still trying! We have a gorgeous little beagle who I adore!
I work in Finance and am currently studying for my ACCA which fills most of my sparetime! Just like Deedee, I also love purple! (must be a Dee thing!)
