    Aww I’m saying TTC anyway!!!  😉  I’m excited for all the work on our house. We have plans to paint the outside, renovate the kitchen and start renovating the attic bedroom to be the nursery.  🙂 I’m also SUPER excited for 2 close friends to give birth in Jan & May, and I’m pretty sure my sister will be annoucing a pregnancy this year.

    Hi Ladies! I hope you all don’t mind if I join back in. I wasn’t charting for a while since we are taking a break from TTC and I thought my cycles had regulated, but apparently that isn’t the case, so I am charting again!

    TTC/TTA: TTA

    CD/DPO:
    CD 3/10 DPO

    Cycles TTC/Charting:
    we TTC’d for 6 cycles before we had some big changes in life and decided to put TTC plans on hold. I have been charting for 2 more cycles after that since my cycle decided to go wonky, so I guess we are the 8th cycle of charting?

    Age: 27

    POAS/AF Date:
    I think AF should show in a couple days. I am not POAS unless it’s really late since I know we didn’t BD during the FW

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues:
    I am focussing on being more healthy for when we do TTC, and right now the biggest issue is that we need to get our lives back to a point where we are ready to TTC again.

    I think we have a really exciting year ahead! I am trying to exercise more so excited to get back in shape, and we just moved to a new city, so I am excited for getting settled in and everything starting to feel like home! I should also graduate with my masters this year, so I think that’s pretty exciting too!
     

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Yay finally!!!

    @FreckledFox:  Omigosh I’ve been gone too long! You finally have a solid TTC timeframe! How exciting!

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Aww thanks!! We’ve done almost EVERYTHING in that sucker. The kitchen has the original countertops, they are burnt and stained beyond belief and the cabinets were beat to hell so we’re replacing the cabinet doors and the counters and sink. The Attic is just studs and some insulation so we need to build out the wall a bit to make room for extra insulation since our house is a block house, and then frame, insulate, sheetrock, tape, spackle, sand and paint and install carpeting and lights!  Just a couple things left.  😉  We also need to paint the whole darn house on the outside! The stucco was patched so many times and the paint is peeling from 1950!  🙂  Our house is a 1940 stucco/block Cape Cod in the mountains of NJ.

    Oh I forgot, we have an empty room on the first floor that will be a half bathroom. (it was a bathroom in 1940, but the previous owners ripped it out and beat it to crap!). So we’ve gutted and built it back up to bare walls, and now it needs plumbing. We’re bascially restoring it. And then we need to paint the basement floors. 🙂

    @Utopia4us:  Yes!!  About a month ago or so.. between Thanksgiving and Christmas my DH and I had a talk and he FINALLY told me he’d like a May baby.  🙂  So it could be July if my long cycles get longer. How are you?? Congrats on almost finishing your masters!!

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  I never wanted a large home. DH actually picked this out himself before we were engaged, but he says he kept me in mind. 😉  We’ve got 3 bedrooms (2 & the attic room), 1 full bathroom, 1 soon to be half bath, dining room, kitchen (not eat-in), living room, basement.  🙂 There are no closets aside from the bedrooms… thats the only downside! But we’ve added built-ins wherever we could haha.

    @Tomato22:  Hang in there! Ovulation will come soon!!!

    @SaltedCaramel:  I haven’t heard that about sperm and phones! My DH keeps his in the chest pocket anyway. He’s always wearing flannels. 😉
