So, I wrote a few days ago that my husband and I had the talk about when we would start TTC. We casually discussed getting some things in order before we start actively trying. Well, I guess that planted the baby seed in his head and in the last 5 days he has developed full-on baby fever.
It’s adorable. He’s turning 32 on the 21st of this month and he said that’s a good “dad” age.
Coincidentally, I had to call my doctor this week because I’ve been getting bad migraines with auras since starting orthotricylcin 4 months ago. She instructed me to immediately go off the birth control pill and use condoms because I was putting myself at risk for a blood clot (yikes!)
So, my husband took that as a “sign”.
Today, my pill reminder alarm went off and I hit ignore and disabled the app from my phone. Yikes!
The hubs is ready to concieve, whatever it takes. This happened so quickly, I’m still in shock. He asked when we should start trying and wants to go to the dollar store after work and get some OPKs.
I’m freaked! (In a good way though)
I just need to process all of this.
I was at the end of my pill pack. I had two pill days left before my placebo week. So, I will most likely menstruate soon. I’ll have to get my head wrapped around fertility windows and charting. Oh boy! (or girl).
I guess I’m officially in the TTC category.

Yay so exciting!!
My husband and I got married this past September and we were originally saying wait 1-2 years to start TTC. Well. Over the holidays we started talking about it and now we’re in our first cycle of TTC.
Doesn’t sound like you were on the pill for very long so hopefully your cycle will become regular and you can start trying 🙂 Good luck! 🙂

Yay!! DH and I started this month. We had planned on Spring-ish but then he decided January was good for him and we were a go! Hopefully you regulate quickly after coming off BC. Good luck and have fun!!

Congrats, that’s so exciting! Hopefully your migraines and auras stop soon, those are so disorienting and painful! Enjoy this special time in your life. 🙂

@Mrs.Metalm: Congrats! This is so exciting! This is how my husband was too. First he was like “Oh we’ll try in the spring” then changed his mind to..now. LOL! Baby dust to you!

You all are so super sweet! The TTC community is so full of love!
Tonight the hubs and I went out for sushi to celebrate our decision (and possibly my last sushi) and then we went and poked around the baby section in walmart. We’re excited. The idea is really solidifying. I bought a ton of OPKs and can’t wait for my period to come and go. If we can’t concieve before March, we’ll take a break until the summer months. I really don’t want a holiday baby. We have so many in the family already!
