    I always wanted a trampoline but my parents thought they were too dangerous. This year I don’t really have any chirstmas wants in fact the only thing I asked for was some new kitchen tongs.


    For christmas lights this is the first year we’re actually going to put effort into them so we’re actually headed out today to get some more lights. We do a combo of colored and white.

    TTC/TTA: TTC!

    CD/DPO: CD28, 10DPO (??)

    Cycles TTC/Charting: This is the end of my first cycle, I think AF will be here soon, so I’ll be on cycle 2!

    Age: 28

    POAS/AF Date: I’ve had some really light/sporadic spotting since last night, so I’m wondering if AF is coming soon… This is cycle 1 off BC. I POAS yesterday and got a BFN..

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Been taking prenatals since October, will try to BD as much as possible anytime close to my potential FW and keep going until confirmed O! Also have been getting back into an exercise routine.

    The thing that I wanted but never got was probably a horse. 🙂  But I guess I never really pushed for it too hard!

    I don’t really have anything specific that I really want for Christmas – just excited to have both of my sisters and their families home for 2 whole weeks!!

    TTC/TTA: TTC!

    CD/DPO: CD 15/ 4 or 5 DPO — I had a fallback rise on 2 or 3 dpo and FF hasn’t confirmed, which is fine because I paper chart as well, clearly I am crazy haha, but I’m not positive which day I actually O’d, so we BD extra just in case.

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 2 TTC, though last was more NTNP/ 6 charting

    Age: 22

    POAS/AF Date: AF is due 12/18, but I won’t POAS until 12/20 because if I have an early chemical again, I’d rather not know. Also, 12/21 is our 6 month anniversary and I’d love to give DH a card signed from missy and baby.. But I have no self control so we will see when I actually POAS. That chemical last month threw me for a loop though so I’m probably less POAS-happy this month.

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Just BD the heck out of each other, charting, pre-natal vitamins

    I can’t think of a gift I always wanted… I guess probably another American Girl Doll? I loved them… but I always had to save up my chore money to buy them myself. This year, I would love a record player or a nice cushy lululemon yogamat. I already bought myself a Nesspresso, which was my dream gift to start with 🙂

    I would love to join! This is my first cycle charting, so I may need some help. I just went off of birth control, so since this is my first cycle off then my cycles may be a little wonky for awhile.

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO: CD 2

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 1st for both!

    Age: 24

    POAS/AF Date: FF says AF is on Jan 3rd, but it’s obviously just assuming I’ll be regular, so who really knows!

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: This first cycle may end up being NTNP, since from what I understand, I won’t know I ovulated until after the fact since this is my first cycle charting. I’ll probably do OPKs though to help. We also got some preseed.

    I always wanted one of those Barbie Jeeps you could ride in, but I never got one! This year DH and I aren’t doing presents and we’re going on a trip together instead. But I really want a Shark Mop from MIL.

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO: CD24/Either 9 or 11 DPO (FF says 11DPO, I think 9.)

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 1st cycle TTC, 6th charting.

    Age: 29

    POAS/AF Date: the 11th? I actually POAS today and it was negative, and prob won’t bother again unless AF is late.

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: taking a “conception care” multivitamin, switched from regular lube to a sperm-friendly one, just trying to BD enough at the right time. This past cycle I used OPKs but I’m not sure if I will continue with them.

    I can’t remember anything I wanted when I was a young child, but I remember in 2001 or 2002-ish right after iPods had come out (so I was 16 or so?) I reeeally wanted one and my parents got me a new discman instead because they said MP3 players were a fad. 😛

    This year I just want a stress-free holiday!! We are going away to hole up in a beach house and I think it will be perfect.

    Let me join the fun!

    TTC/TTA: Last cycle TTA! Yey!

    CD/DPO: CD 7

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 0/14 cycles charting and a few others I don’t count because I was on the pill.

    Age: 28, DH 32

    POAS/AF Date: No POAS/ I estimate AF to come first week of January!

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: No BFP plan yet. I am trying to lose weight, eat healthy, excercise, get in the best possible shape I can get. I am taking prenatals, charting, taking care of myself. 😉

    I really don’t remember, but I liked cars more than dolls, so probably something with wheels 🙂

    I just really want to be in good health and no stress to get that BFP fast next year!! That would be my best gift.

    @Woodstock:  Thanks for starting the new thread! 🙂

     

    TTC/TTA: TTA

    CD/DPO: CD3

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 6th cycle charting

    Age: 27

    POAS/AF Date: Based on the last couple months, AF will likely come around 1/3, but I’m hoping for later! (I’ve had a short LP recently, hoping for it to start lengthening out a bit)

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: HOPEFULLY starting TTC next cycle – DH is still hunting for a job, though, so we won’t move forward until he gets hired.  I have a short LP (longest was 12 days, but it’s been more like 10 with a day of spotting at the end recently) – I started B6 last month to try to help with that.  I may be looking into what else I can do to try to make it longer.  I’m going to be more focused/dedicated about eating healthy (I’ve been lazy with my diet lately) and continuing to exercise regularly – I’m sure dropping 5-10lbs would help get my body in prime baby-making shape 🙂

    I always wanted an American Girl doll, but never asked for it because I thought it was too expensive – I didn’t find out until I was 18-19 that my mom always wanted to get me one, but didn’t know I was interested! This year I want new workout clothes 🙂 And maybe a certificate for a massage, that would be fabulous. 

    @future_mrs_s:  We just got a Nesspresso machine – it’s in DH’s office right now, but it’ll be in our house when we move.  It’s fantastic, definitely worth the pricetag!

    I always wanted a bike. My mother finally got one for me and it was stolen after a week before I could barely enjoy it. I never got another to this day. This year I would love to see my family for Xmas.

    @Woodstock:  Haha I didn’t realize you started the new thread. I figured I’d see a post haha. I rarely go to the WB main page on the weekends since I’m not near a computer. PS: I have a furby and I BARELY played with it. My parents still tease me to this day how much I wanted it vs. how much I actually played with it.

    @SadieBee:  Thanks for alerting me. Haha  🙂 Nespresso commercials make me want coffee so bad!

    @Tomato22:  Welcome! FX this is the lucky cycle!I added you on FF!

    @pickledplum:  Haha my parents did that to me too! The said mp3 players were going to be obsolete so they got me a great discman, then the following year I asked for an ipod and they gave me a SONY mp3 player. They were so anti-apple. Now they both have iphones and I don’t haha.


    TTC/TTA:  TTA

    CD/DPO: CD28/11 DPO

    I wanted a My Size Barbie. I never got it.  🙁  We also asked for a puppy (my sister and I).  for 21 years of our lives and finally got one 4 years ago!!  This year a want a REALLY good pair of slippers and I really good pair of ear muffs. I would’ve said baby even though I’m not TTCing haha.

    Oh and as for the poll: We actually have red and white for the tree. I choose a mix, but I gues it’s “other”. We wanted red, white and green since I like white lights and DH likes colored, but we figured the tree was green… so, red and white! Outside we do white lights. We have mostly silver ornaments and garlands too. 🙂
