    Ttc 2020!

    I'm 28, husband 29, and planning on ttc for our first baby starting july 2020. The waiting is because I have to lose weight, quit smoking, do sport and start eating healthier, also because we both work A LOT and we need to figure out what to do in order to being able to care for a baby, but honestly I cant wait, baby fever has been a huge thing for a couple years now.

    Anyone else planning on ttc in 2020?? We could wait togther

    Waiting to hear your stories!

    We are planning to start trying for our fourth and final baby in January of 2020. We have a 9 week old now and want them to be close in age, but are waiting to be 6 months post-partum. It's a long way off but will be here before we know it! I feel like I was just pregnant! (Because I was!) So the thought of going through all of that again is a bit overwhelming, but this is our last baby, and it will be worth it.

    I am 33, my husband is soon to be 34, and we have three little ones already (4, 2.5, and 9 weeks). Ideally we would love to give our youngest a sister since the two boys are kind of paired off already, but we'll see what happens!

    Our twins are almost 13 months and we'll probably try again Spring/Summer 2020 when they're almost 2. I'm 33 and he's 32 so we don't want to wait too long. If we're lucky the boys will be between 2 1/2 - 3 years old when their sibling is born. Hopefully just one this time. Lol Either way that will complete our family.

    Hi ladies! Excited to see this thread up!

    Hubby and I had a "when should we think about babies" discussion in January, and we decided to reassess in 18 months (which would mean June / July 2020). At the moment, I'm thinking we'll probably start TTC in August or September 2020.

    My pre-baby goals are not that big. I just want to lose a bit of weight and shape up a bit to make pregnancy easier on my body. We live comfortably, but it would be nice to have a bit more savings before a baby, so we're trying to be extra good with money.

    Anyone else already collecting baby things? We have some books, stuffed animals, cute clothes. There's a bassinet for sale for $20 and I really want to get it too... it's white and light green, and just precious!

    Happy waiting and baby prepping, everyone!! Xx

    Hi all! It's nice to join in a little early and have a group of people looking forward to next year's adventures. My partner and I will be trying for our second (and probably last) baby in the spring. Our firstborn turns three in October - about six weeks away. I'd hoped to start trying sooner, but the past three years have thrown us some curveballs! I know I'll get nervous as the winter winds down but right now the next six months stretch out in front of me like the view from a mountaintop.

    We have quite the checklist for pre-TTC. Financial goals, fitness goals, toddler goals (let's be done with diapers, eh, kiddo?), and some dreams that would be nice but are not must-do: we'd really like to take a long weekend just the two of us, leaving our little guy with his grands; we've been looking to buy a house for the past year but haven't found one yet that tops our rental.

    We're not really collecting new baby stuff for Kid 2, but we do have several storage bins of hand-me-downs. It'd be just my luck if age gaps, body types, etc. make all those clothes not-quite-right, haha. There are a bunch of things I'd like to do differently the second time around, so we will be planning and shopping at some point pre-baby.

    Nice to meet you all!

    I'm so excited my fiance and I are having a super small wedding next spring and planning on trying for a baby next summer. I am so excited! I am 27 and he is 31. As far as preparing we already have good jobs and a house just trying to save up as much money as possible. Also I'm getting off my birth control pill next month, just one more pack to go. I haven't had a period in years so this gives me anxiety!

    Yay for getting of the pill and giving your body time to heal before baby! I know it can be a rough journey, but it will be okay eventually - no matter how rubbish you feel in the first few months off it. I wish you all the best and fast healing! If you'd like any help on pill recovery, just ask. Xx

    @seedsandstones
    Hand-me-downs are such a blessing! Must be nice to know you have a lot of things already. Less running around buying things, and you probably are much more in touch with what you actually "need" after having your first. I see so many people selling baby things second hand with captions like "hardly used - found we didn't need it"... It's hard to know what you should buy in preparation for number one...

    I've had a baby Pinterest board for aaaages! Haha. :P It's so nice collecting little pictures and ideas. I barely every use / make anything I pin, but it makes a nice collection to browse through lol

    Found out recently that a few friends are expecting end of this year / early next. Pretty excited! I've realised we've officially moved from the weddings stage to the babies stage of life. The last few years we were going to 3 or 4 weddings a year... now it's all baby announcements haha!
