DEAR DEIDRE: I GOT in touch when my girlfriend and I were trying for a baby.
She is 35 and has an eight-year-old from a previous relationship, but we dearly wanted our own child too.

I am 32 and was worried when months went by with nothing happening.
You were so kind and reassuring, while your support pack Want To Have A Baby? had loads of useful suggestions on how to maximise our chances of conceiving.
It made us both feel so much less anxious. You also told me to relax and to enjoy our lovemaking, instead of making it a means to an end.
I had almost forgotten that this was meant to be fun.
I wanted to let you know that last week, my girlfriend got confirmation from the doctor that she is pregnant.
It’s early days but we’re so excited about our growing family. And now I’m planning to propose!
We’re going to be a family of four, which is all I’ve ever wanted.

Good luck with everything.
