I've been a lurker and posted a couple of times but thought it was time to take the plunge and jump in properly!
I'm 29 and live in Northumberland with my husband and 6 year old Basset hound and have been married since August 2011. Pual is in the RAF so we have been waiting to see where he will be posted etc before thinking about kids.
This changes last week - on the 13th March I got an awful phone call to say that my wonderful Dad had passed away very suddenly after a massive heart attack. We had no warning at all, he worked a 12 hour night shift on the tuesday night as a HGV mechanic. My Mum came home from work and found him. It's all been absolutely heartbreaking and my Mum hasn't done well with it all. The only real comfort is that at 61 Dad lived everyday of his life to the full and enjoyed every minute, he got to walk e down the ailse and see bth me and my little brother settled - I wish he had seen us have kids too though.
Well during all this we found out that Paul will be in Northumberland for a while and that life is too short so we're just going to go for it - I finished my pill last week and won't start again eek! We are probably a bit mental as Paul may get posted abroad for 4 months at some point but we'll work around it.
We probably will be just seeing what happens for a few months before getting into the temping and ovulation sticks but we'll see.
Look forward to getting more involved and speaking to you all more xxx

Thanks all for the warm welcome! Yes it has been such a shock - it hasn't all really sunk in yet the funeral was a blur. Good to hear we have a few military wives - it's definitely good to have support xxx

Hello and welcome! So sorry about your dad. FWIW I can relate completely to your thinking there, the loss of my dad was what prompted me to take a far more proactive approach to TTC. Good luck!
