Let's get to know each other a little better, besides our combined fertility issues. — The Bump
Secondary IF

Let's get to know each other a little better, besides our combined fertility issues.

Hi, I am new here and would love to know more about everyone here, outside of our fertility issues. I will start: I am 34 years old, my DH is 36, we have 1 DD who is 2 1/2 years old. I am a police officer in Maryland, have been for 7 years and was one prior to that in California for 5 years. My hubby is a project manager for a large construction company in Wash DC. We have 2 large dogs, French Mastiff mix name Thor and a Rottie named Aphrodite. We love to work out, ride motorcycles and do anything outside. What about you guys??

  • @kc1212, I have a BA in English Ed!  I don't like reading though.  Well, that's not true, I like reading, but I prefer to be read to.  I love audio books!

    I am 31 and so is DH.  We have been married 5.5 years and I became a SAHM after DS was born last year.  DH is a high school science teacher and is thinking of going back to school to get a masters starting in the fall.  We have two cats who used to be indoor fur babies until they didn't adjust well to DS. Now they're exclusively outside cats and we got new carpet.

    I love doing projects around my house, decorating and crafty things, but my budget not to much, lol.  So, I have to be really really creative.  I also bake for hire and love party planning.  

    I don't want to go back to work in an office ever, if I can help it.  But I have been building my portfolio and am getting ready to open an etsy shop.  I will list digital files of customized stationary/invitations/etc.  After a while, I may start offering printed items, too.  But I'm not sure I want to deal with the hassle of shipping.  
    Happily Mrs. C

  • I'm 30, DH is 40. We have been married 6 years and DS is 4.5. I have my M.A. in speech pathology and I am a speech therapist. I started a PhD program, but don't want to give up working to go back to school and haven't been able to juggle both so I'll work for now. DH is a professor (which is part of why I went back- free education is a major perk!).

    We have 2 mini Australian shepherds. We try to get out, just the two of us, once a week even if it's just to grab a burger for half an hour after work. DS is in a major hellion stage and testing us at every turn. From a developmental perspective, I love it because it means he is acknowledging that we have moods and feelings. From a parent's perspective, it's exhausting!

    This is awesome, thanks for all your replies. @Mrs Castillo‌ I did not know what that stood for, lol. Still am confused about some of the lingo. Lol. Also forgot to add me and hubby have been married 4 years, come May I still have not seen frozen, I am lucky if I can get my crazy girl to stop enough to eat sitting down. She is 100% on the go all the time. She even moves all over her bed the entire night, lol.

    I'm 34 and my hubby will be 30 in a couple weeks. I robbed the cradle ;-)

    I have a DD that will be 7 years old in a month from a previous marriage and I really need to get started planning her birthday party!

    I'm a stay at home mom but have an accounting degree and was a staffing recruiter and teacher prior to staying at home along with a few other jobs. I never really figured out what I want to be when I grow up excepting being a mom. My husband is a truck driver. We just got married last November because my stupid ex kept tied up in assets for 3 years . We've been together for a lot longer.

    We live on NC and like outdoors kind if stuff like fishing, hunting, gardening and four wheeling.

    We have a Chiweenie named Pixie Cupcake.

    I'm an retire roller derby player and I'm obsessed with cupcakes. My husband was a semi pro pool player and his dad is ranked 2nd in the US for winning the most money in fishing tournaments. There's a name for it but I'm can't remember what it is. My DD is a competition cheerleader and is very free spirited.

    We're kind of a hippy, redneck fam, haha!

    Oh and I'm almost always late to answering posts!

  • DH & I are 33. married for 3 years. i have a BS in psychology but did nothing with it, so went to school to be a nurse. i work in a neuro-surgical intensive care unit. just got accepted into a master's degree program for nursing leadership and education. at the time i applied i thought i was nuts trying to go to school while TTC but now that we are on hold to start IVF at some future date (when money grows on trees) i welcome the distraction of school.

    ds just turned 2. he is a beast. literally and figuratively. he's about 1/3 the size of me (i'm really short so i guess that's not saying much) and is constantly pushing the boundaries. love him to pieces but most days i want to throat punch him.

    furbaby is a chihuahua/terrier mutt... quite the cranky bitch named Jezebelle. ds tortures her on a daily basis but she takes it like a champ.

    i've watched frozen twice. i'm meh about it. (fully aware i am in the minority here)
    i hate bell peppers.
    i am a crazy coupon lady. i have a 3" binder full of coupons i haul with me everywhere.
    i have the mouth of a sailor. thought for sure ds's first word would be fuck.
    i love wine.

    I'm 45, and DW is 48. I am a geriatric nurse, and DW is a foreign language (English and Swedish) teacher. I am from Manchester, England and DW is from Stockholm, Sweden, but now we live in Bergen, Norway. We've been together for 13 years, married for 5.

    My elder daughter is 16, with my XH, and she's far too tall and looks far too much like her dad and acts far too much like DW, and I adore her anyway. My younger daughter with DW is 7, and when she was asked what she wanted to be when she was older on her first day of school she said her big sister and I almost died of cuteness overload. But she has also taken to her sister's teenage tantrums.

    The only pets we have are two clown fish named Mr. Nobody and Astrabacus, a goatfish named Elsa.

    I was horrified when I found out that Frozen was supposed to be based on The Snow Queen, and now I can't watch it.
    We all go camping in Jotunheimen every year with DWs extended family.
    I've seen the Northern Lights seven times.
    I love beer.
    My favourite film ever is the Prince of Egypt.
