That sounds like an awesome trip. Our neighbors spent 2 weeks in South African on a hunting safari earlier this year. The photos they took are just amazing. Hope you have fun.

We are TTC in November. No nerves for me, but Mr. Lk definitely has some. It’s going to be a fantastic adventure, I just know it. FX that your TTC time is quick.

Yep! I’m taking out my BC ring on Friday, which will officially start my first cycle tying. I’m mostly just excited at this point.

The nerves come in when I think A) what if we get pregnant right away? Part of our decision to start TTC now was that it will probably take a little while. I think we’d both be totally shocked. B) what if it takes a loooong time? Obviously, this is the worse of the two.

I’m just counting down the days at this point. I ordered some OPKs and HPTs online and are waiting for them to arrive. I started charting this morning to get in the habit before its time.

mrshollinger:  We are going on our delayed (6 months after the fact) honeymoon the first week of November, and we will officially start trying on that trip, because I did not want to be preggo ON the trip, andddddddddd I am FREAKING OUT too, lol.

I mean, I am excited at the prospect, and starting a family, and the excitement I know we will receive when we spread the news (cause no one knows either), whenever it happens, but wish we had not ‘planned’ a certain time to TTC?!  I just keep thinking this will be our last X,Y,Z or the fact that I cannot sip wine (maybe) thru the holidays (seriously…need.the.wine), or my DH’s surprise party I am planning in early December, and how I will get away with not drinking while making ppl think that I am!!!

OH, and having a child!!!!

It is smart to plan, and I am type A, but today as I type this response wonder if an ‘oops’ baby would be easier, because than I cannot overthink all of these really tiny, first world, selfish non-momma problems 🙂

Next month we are starting! I’m pretty excited too. I haven’t been as diligent taking my folic acid though so I really need to kick my butt on that one. Overall I’m just nervous about everything and hoping we don’t have too much trouble

mrshollinger:  I am and it’s terrifying and all-consuming but also VERY exciting. We were planning on waiting a number of years but a situation popped up that made now very ideal for us. So, we decided to NTNP which turned into TTC within the week 😀 (I actually have a feeling I miiiiiiiight have gotten preggo already but now that we’re trying I’m overly sensitive to every little pain and feeling so I’m trying not to read too much into anything).  Good luck and enjoy! 😀 🙂 Also, Africa! Yay!

OUgal0004:  I don’t think there’s really any way to get past those selfish little thoughts. I’m the exact same way, thinking, “but if I’m pregnant over the holidays, I won’t be able to drink!” or “but if I’m pregnant on our vacation, I won’t be able to drink!” or… well, I guess all my thoughts have to do with drinking! haha

But there’s no way to really plan these things. It’s only 9 months. And I think I just might force my husband to be alcohol-free as well 😀
