I live in Dorset, I am a qualified Staff Nurse, But currently job hunting because I can no longer do that role :(! H is a Prison officer in London he's also currently looking for a prison officer job in Dorset.

II'm Suzie - i'm 25, my OH has just turned 26. We have been together since June 2006, have been married since January 2012. Have been TTC our first child since December 2011, sadly had a MC July 2012, and have been TTC again since then but my body got very confused after the MC and only decided to settle down earlier this year!
I live in Chester, i work for an insurance company as an Underwriter, my OH is a shop assistant in a shop that sells tools.
We are currently organising a trip to Australia to see family and watch the Australian Grand Prix in March, if i dont get my BFP by October, which is exciting in one way as i get to see my lovely family , but sad in another cause im only going as i haven't got my BFP.
Thats all i think from me!

cupcake - thats a shame about your nursing, what do you think you will do instead? you will have to show a pic of your dogy, he sounds lovely!
suzie - wow Australia, what parts are you planning on going? have you been to silverstone? what an experience you will have at the Australian gp. that is one country i would love to go.
im Ducky-17, we got married in march this year and it was freezing! we had a fantastic day. we are both in our late 20's and have a cute fluffy bunny who has the whole garden to play in :)

Great idea Cupcake! Mind if I ask which prison? I have two family members working in Pentonville (don't quote as I will delete).
I'm Saffron (aka: MellowYellow if you frequent the OT board on Hitched), just turned 25, H will be 35 later this month. We got married in May 2012 and started TTC in the July, however it just wasn't to be for us. We TTC for ten cycles and then we had to stop, in order for me to pursue a career change in to teaching.
My PGDE starts in a couple of weeks, and we start TTC again in October...reasoning being that even if we are incredibly lucky and fall in the first cycle of trying, I wont be due until a few weeks after the course has finished. I'm hoping that the law of sod doesn't give us a first month BFP, as I would be full term (37 weeks) when the course finishes, which would be incredibly tough going and serve me right for not waiting another month or two. Given how long we tried unsuccessfully for last year, I just can't bring myself to wait longer than the bare minimum necessary.
I know that the course will be very intense, so I'm hopeful that it keeps me so busy that I am able to stay more grounded than I did last time. Altogether though, I am in a much better place mentally, so I'm hopeful I will be fine.
A lot going on elsewhere as I finish up at my job on Friday, and then I'm off on a few trips during my break. Hitting the gym pretty hard with Body Pump and Core Stability classes, and also traiing for a couple of 10k runs and a half marathon. I've combined this with Slimming World as I'm really determined to have a healthy BMI in eight weeks time when we start up again.
I could waffle on forever, but I wont, as you will get bored. Ciao

Excuse the mess in the middle of decorating! and need too Hoover! this is Eric not sure why it's on it's side! Sorry!

ducky - we will just go to Melbourne as thats where my family are. If we werent in the situation we are in now, we would have saved up for longer and gone to Sydney maybe too as we love it there, but it has been a last minute decision to go as we both need something to look forward to, so we have had to save from scratch for the plane tickets, which as you can imagine are very expensive! We are hoping that we get our BFP and put the trip on hold, but you just don't know what will happen!
I have not been to any Grand Prix before, its my OH which is a big fan, he has only been to Silverstone. Im not a massive fan of F1 but i am feeling very lucky that my first Grand Prix experience will probably be the Australian one!x

Hi, I'm wishful, I'm 25, My H is 29. We have been together for 3 years and married 1.5 weeks now.
He has a 6 year old daughter, whose amazing and my best friend. I've just finished my AAT and waiting for one last result, so for the whole 3 years of knowing eachother i've been a night studier so its quite nice to enjoy married life without revision. He's a night worker so i work 8am - 5pm and he works 10pm - 6am. So we see eachother for about 5 hours a day as he passes out as soon as he gets home. Which works fine for us, I quite like having an hour to myself before bed and he likes to wake up slowly with his own space - I think its just something we've got used to but makes timing a little tricky for when i do eventually ovulate.
Currently on my 3rd cycle, but 5th month. I have a fibroid, which i've told shouldnt affect fertility but dont know yet.

Hi all, I'm Choc Apple. I turned 35 last month (aarghh) and I'm ttc my first with H who I married in 2010. I'm a manager during the day and a part time fitness instructor in the evenings and currently teach pilates, kettlebells, metafit and abs blast. I also run in my spare time.
I came off the pill in September last year after 16 years on it. We managed to get a BFP in January, on cycle 4 but unfortunately that ended in a missed miscarriage and an ERPC (D&C) at 10 weeks in March. Its been a tough time but thanks to the support of ladies on here, and others, I've managed to get through it. We remain positive!!!!
Hi to all

I'm Blackkat & I'm 35 & my hubby is 3 years my junior. I got married 3 years ago & have an 18 month old daughter. We're waiting till next month now to start TTC but I'm itching to get started. I'm a part time primary school teacher but am intending to be a SAHM if we're lucky enough to have a second child as it won't be worth the cost of childcare.

Okay so here goes mine properly...
I'm PurpleStar! I became 26 today and my H is 27. We've been together for over 9 years and got married in October 2012 and have been trying to conceive since then, I have very long, very irregular cycles which is complicating things! I work as an Assistant Manager at a Touring Park (really not very exciting) and currently have a dog and two guinea pigs I mother instead.
(Thank you for the birthday wishes!)

I have loved reading these about you ladies, we share our most intimate thing's with each other so it's nice to know the face behind the screen (kinda) lol!

I'm Imp or Mrs Imp over on Hitched. I got married to mr imp in Ibiza last June. We have a kitty called Lizzy, she is my fur baby for the time being!
As for TTC, well, we started TTC last year, we got our BFP in December and were delighted. Sadly it wasn't meant to be and we had a mmc in February. We then started TTC again and got our 2nd BFP in April, sadly again it wasn't meant to be. We are both broken at the moment, trying to find our way through the sadness, but we are together and that is what is getting us through it.
So, I am back here, waiting for tests and results, to find out if we can TTC again.
ETA: We're both 33.
