    emsy3110:  I’m so glad you started this one. Hopefully some thread-starter luck in there for you! 😉

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC/TTA: TTA until December. Only one more cycle after this one and then it’s on!

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 0 TTC / 5 Charting to avoid<br />

    Age: 26 for both of us.

    POAS/AF Date: AF Oct. 13th<br />

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Plan: Charting all fertility signs, using OPKs, taking prenatals, will BD when CM is EW or W, maybe skip a day in FW to let DH replenish, idk, lol. Issues: Early MC in June after surprise BFP, taking Pregnitude to help strengthen eggs and regulate my longish cycles.<br />

    Random Question: How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest, somewhere in the middle? I have one sister and I’m the oldest, she is three years younger than me. DH also only has one sister and he’s the youngest, 5 years between them. So we’re pretty set on having 2 kids since we both come from two children families. (Of course we’ll see when we get there if we want a third or not) 🙂<br />

    Poll: I said Halloween b/c I love the spooky mystical feel of it and dressing up in costumes is so fun! Halloween parties are the best! 😀

    Random Question: How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest, somewhere in the middle?

    I have two that I’m missing a lot right now (they are both in TX). I have an older sister and a younger sister. I loved being the middle sister! My older sister is almost 5 years older than me and my little sister is 2 1/2 younger. My older sister and niece, who I miss like crazy, moved to TX a year ago and my little sister moved to the same place at the end of July. I loved fall in our current city with my family. My dad and his partner are here, but we don’t have as close of a relationship. 

    Poll: I said Halloween, though I do love Thanksgiving! I LOVE late fall and December. The holidays are my favorite time because it’s just so warm (not outside obviously) and special. I love Halloween a lot now because I decorate my classroom. It’s fun! I can’t really decorate for other holidays, so I go crazy!

    Oh, in somewhat related news, I talked to my mom, who lives in Saudi Arabia currently, and she thinks she may be moving back late Spring/early Summer. She doesn’t know our TTC plans, but I so hope she does! I miss her so much and would love if she was close by 1) just because I’m selfish and want her in the states and 2) so she can be a part of a future pregnancy…but not in a overbearing kind of way. I hope she does come back soon!

    MrsFairyBee:  You’re so close and that is so exciting! Is it just me or is this fall flying by? We have been in school now 6 weeks and I can’t believe it’s already been that long! We want two kids too. I come from a family with three kids, DH is an only child, so we’re meeting in the middle.

    Random Question: How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest, somewhere in the middle?

    I am the oldest of four. I have two brothers and my little sister. I’ve been their mom at times. We don’t want four kids only if we adopt in addition to having our own. I think 3 will be our max maybe just 2.

    For the poll: I just love the late fall holidays. I am not that big into shopping. I love decorating for Thanksgiving and Christmas the most and planning delicious meals. I also like that Thanksgiving and Christmas is such a great for family to get together. My favorite by far.

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC/TTA: on pause from TTC for medical reasons<br />

    CD/DPO: a bazillon (or about 6.5 months)<br />

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 12 cycles TTC, 10 charting, 6.5 months pause, so about a 1.5 years since we started :(<br />

    Age: me: 32, DH: 39<br />

    POAS/AF Date: early/mid December if all goes well, then we can start trying again!!<br />

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Severe endometriosis. I’ve had 2 laproscopies, one prior to TTC and one after TTC unsuccessfully for a year. My second one revealed that my Endo had become so severe that they couldn’t get it all on one surgery: I went from Stage 1 to Stage 4 Endo in the year since coming off BC to TTC. I was put on 6 months of Zoladex to heal and reduce the regrowth of my Endo until I could have another surgery to remove the rest (hopefully). I’m worried it’s gotten worse gain since I’ve been hurting a lot again the past few months, especially along my bladder and bowels, where I had a LOT of Endo during my last surgery. I had an ultrasound during my last Zoladex appointment but they couldn’t find anything, so hopefully it’s just adhesions that have grwon since the last surgery. I’ve become a bit pessamistic with this whole thing though*sigh*

    Since I’ve been in fake menopause from the Zoladex for 6 months next week, I haven’t been able to TTC. I have my next laproscopy scheduled for Nov 24th (finally!!), and my 6th shot of Zoladex on Wednesday. I will decide Wednesday wheter to risk another month of Zoladex or find another method to stop my Endo from growing like wildfire until my surgery date. My tubes were clear and my ovaries looked okay during my last surgery, and the doc will check again during this one as well. I hope and pray that I can get all of the Endo removed during my next surgery and have success TTC shortly afterwards. Endo is the devil🙁

    Link to Chart: no point until my cycles start again

    Random Question: How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest, somewhere in the middle? I’m the oldest. I have 2 younger brothers, one 2 years younger and one 7 years younger.<br />

    As for the poll, I chose Thanksgiving dinner. I love fall in general, the smell of the leaves, cider and hot cinnamon donuts (and the taste of the latter, but not the leaves ), but those weren’t choices:) I chose dinner becuause I love getting to together with my family, and DHs’s too.

    I can’t wait until my surgery!! It feels like it’s taking forever now that it’s scheduled. I hate that I have to wait, but I can’t take  a week off the first semester of my new job, that’d be missing 5 days of classes! I should be TTC again about the same time as you candy11: MrsFairyBee:. The first 6 months post surgery are our best chances. If we get pregnant right away the timing will be horrible, as I’m a teacher, but I don’t care anymore. Bring it on! If this doesn’t work we’ll have to move on to IVF.

    I’m still following along with the thread, but as fast as this thread moves I haven’t been Roll Calling all the time, since it feels dumb since there’s no change, and no chart to stalk from me. I’m trying to be on WB less since it just makes me sad that I can’t TTC again yet and anxious for the time to fly by! 6+ months of this waiting has gotten old. We need to be trying again already, geesh! Snuggling all day with my adorable 2 month old nephew last weekend *may* have stoked my baby wanting fires up to 10 again now too, so I’m trying to avoid thinking about it 😉

    Turtle83: I’m so glad to hear all is well! Hearing that hearbeat must be such a joy after all of your struggles:) I’m so happy for you guys. You give me hope as well.
