Getting to know you! :)

I'm a bit of a newbie to this group but I've already found that, like the main PW board, there are lots of really nice supportive ladies here - I know I'm going to be spending a lot of time here as I go through the TTC journey, as the advice and support is invaluable!


So I'd love to get to know a bit about you all (and hopefully this will take our minds off peeing on sticks for 2 minutes at least!)....


Look forward to reading all your answers x
