Trying to conceive

Apr 2nd, 2007, 13:53 PM   #1
 
HI - just wanted to start a new thread.
My hubby is in the RAF (would like to chat to other Forces partners as it is a pain at times) and we are currently trying for baby no 2.
It's weird as our daughter Eloise was a suprise (I refuse to say accident!) pregnancy as I was on the pill at the time, so I assumed it would be just as easy this time round.
Have only being trying 3 - 4 months so it is early days but still feeling a little down. The last 2 periods I had came as a suprise as I had convinced myself both times I was pregnant and spent sooo much money on pregnancy tests, convinced they would eventually come up positive
Hoping this could be our month, but don't want to get my hopes up which I keep doing.

Sorry for the long post - hope to hear from others like me!

Mrs T
xx

(PS - I am slightly confused by some of the abbreviations - some are obvious i.e TTC but others I don't get )

Will keep you posted as to which ones they are so you can enlighten me!!

lol - thanks

It's a pain to be honest! I used to be in the RAF but left when I had my daughter. OH wanted to leave too but we couldn't afford the pay cut. Waiting for him to find the right job and he will leave too! eeek.
Scary stuff.
Wish money grew on trees

DF went to Brize Norton when he came back from Iraq (well the plane landed there!)

DF was thinking of leaving and was supposed to be signing off last month but they have now told him if he stays in for another 2 years from next year theyy will give him a 4,500 lump sum - and tbh, like both you and Snuggle have said, money is too good - he gets a steady wage whether he is ill,on leave etc so i think he wants to stay in - the only thing that i dont wnat him to stay in for is the fact he may be going to Afghanistan in September next year but suppose its his job isnt it??

Sadly it is.
I hated it when I found out I was pregnant with Eloise, the next month we found out we was going out to the FAlklands. We could have postponed it on compassionate grounds but it would have meant him leaving me with a small baby!
We were planning a wedding at the time so that had to be postponed (ended up being when Eloise was 6 months old)

I hate it - like the security but don't like having a permanent home and don't like the danger involved!
Keep imagining if something happened to my OH like the Navy guys in Iran at the moment.
It's horrible.
