Hey hive! Spent a couple of post-wedding years away from the ‘bee, and now I’m pre-TTC and have been reading the TTC board lately without posting much. I guess I’m just curious to see who else out there is lurking on the board! I know you fellow lurkers are out there, because whenever someone gets their positive HPT, everyone comes out of the woodwork. So.. come out, come out, wherever you are! Here, I’ll start:
Hi, I’m diplomatswife! The Diplomat and I will be TTC probably early next summer. I recently read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, had my Implanon removed (boooo artifical hormones), and started my first chart last week. Lately I’ve been getting more and more excited about the idea of starting a family, but none of my friends have kids yet, which leaves me with a lot of questions, so in order to answer them, I’ve been lurking my ass off.
Okay, your turn!

I must confess I am lurking as well although posting on some boards all around. My hubby and I just got married in May. I am 24 and he is going to be 29 next month. We like you, don’t have many friends with babies, we are the first to get married of the group so doing lots of lurking to get prepared. We will probably start ttc next year around the same time as you but I am going of the pill in October…thank goodness, I will be so happy when I don’t have to take them anymore, I will be a changed woman! 🙂 Also on the side, I have baby fever so bad right now…we originally said a couple years, then we said next year, I just can’t wait to be a mommy, even though it scares me to death!

@diplomatswife: Lol. I was a massive lurker on the TTC boards till be actively started trying after our wedding. I was desparate to have babies with my husband but we needed to wait till after our wedding. It felt like forever! I had to wait for the proposal, then the wedding and now we are here 🙂

I’m an on and off lurker. SO has the WORST case of baby fever. “I’m already 31 and I don’t want to be super old by the time we have kids.” Yeah, his “super old” is 34. His biological clock is ticking I suppose. I’m only 25 so I could totally wait at the moment but I’m lurking now to gather intel on the whole business. Wanna know what we’re getting ourselves into one day.

I’m a TTC lurker. DH and I are in the awkward place where we’re trying to figure out if we want to start TTC or not. I have endometriosis and an autoimmune disease so I worry a lot about having a hard time getting pregnant. It’s really awesome following everyone’s stories and seeing people who finally get a BFP!

Hello! I am a lurker as much as being on the ‘bee while at work allows. I am 27 and hubs is 28 and I guess we are in the pre-TTC camp. I have been off the pill for for about 8 months. I think the earliest we would REALLY try (I say “really” because we have *ahem* got caught up a few times since going off the pill) is probably in May or June of 2013, as I graduate from my masters program in May and we have a fair amount of debt we’d like to work down before working on a little one. I do love reading everyone’s stories and am always so excited to see the BFP posts and birth stories.
One of our couple-friends have two kids, one is 2 years and the other 5 months. Otherwise, none of our friends have babies on the brain practically at ALL, meanwhile, DH and I talk about it a lot.
I can’t wait until next summer but also am looking forward to enjoying this time just with my husband–and hopefully to a big 2nd anniversarry trip in June!

I’m not really a lurker but I definitely read more than I post. I’ve been on the boards for a few months, trying to get myself psyched up about TTC. DH has been ready to start a family since we got married last fall but I’m only getting comfortable with the idea now.

Guilty of lurking…and now getting ready to come out of the woodworks, as I’m starting my first actual cycle of TTC! But I’ve spent the past year hanging around trying to figure out the tips and stuff. I’m pretty excited to finally be able to join a POAS board soon!! (that sounds so funny!)

I don’t really consider myself a lurker as I post on tons of threads in the Nesting section. But DH and I aren’t TTC yet (and don’t plan to for at least another couple years) so I really don’t have any threads of my own around here.
So here I am!

I am totally a TTC board lurker. Me and my FI want to start trying as soon as we buy our home in early next spring, his twin sister is pregnant right now and it’s Makin my baby fever keep rising. Plus he keeps telling me how excited he is to start afamily and how I will make a great mom which makes it harder to wait when he is so sweet about it! -le sigh- were going off birth control in October to get it out of my system, fingers crossed we will have a baby dust fairy with us when the tIme comes and we will have a sticky baby! But for now I will settle for beingexcited to become an auntie in January.

TTC lurker here – and like you said I totally only come out of the woodwork when someone gets a BFP!
Anyways – DH and I have bumped up our timeline a bit and will likely pull the goalie around Christmas time. We had two close friends have babies this year and it has made us so much more comfortable with the idea of becoming parents!
