  • Wedding: February 2013

Age: 30 and DH is nearly 32

When will you TTC?: I will go off BC in mid-September and we’ve talked about it and will be NTNP from the end of October

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Eating healthier, exercising more and trying to create better habits before a little one comes along

Do you chart? Link to the chart: not charting and not going to do so for about six months after I get off BC. I am not in a huge hurry to get preggo (although some days I am) and want to take our time and enjoy the process until we need to start being scientific about it all

What baby item are you currently obsessed with?: washable diapers. I am planning on making them for our family once I get pregnant and have been taken in by all the cute ones available now. Definitely different from the plain white cloth diapers and plastic shorts from when I was growing up.

  • Wedding: November 2013

Age: We’re both 24

When will you TTC?: 2014. I’m hoping for January 😉

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Eating healthily, taking Vitex, check ups with doctor and the dentist, researching, saving money. 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not yet really. 

What baby item are you currently obsessed with?: I don’t like frilly stuff and our place is fairly small so I like the idea of a really simple bassinet like this for the first few months: http://booriurbane.com.au/cot-beds-and-bassinets/bu-basht-bu-bassinet-hteak

If we were made of money I’d also love to get a Bugaboo Bee + but I think we’ll end up with something like the Steelcraft Agile (which I think has a different name in the US)

  • Wedding: September 2013

Age:  I’m 31, FI is 35.

When will you TTC?:  April 2014 at the earliest… maybe more like summer, we’ll see. 

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Getting ready for the wedding!  Haha… 51 days.  I keep reminding myself that I need to get through the wedding first.  Taking prenatals, working out, eating healthy.  Will start major saving after the wedding spending is done.

Do you chart? Link to the chart:  Nope, still on BCP for now.

What baby item are you currently obsessed with?:  Nurseries… all nurseries.  I guess it’s a diversion from wedding planning??  lol.

@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  Thanks for doing the list!  And that bassinet is seriously cool!

@debinoxford:  I had those diapers growing up, too.  It’s amazing how far cloth diapering has come!

  • Wedding: March 2013

Age: I’m 28 and DH is 32

When will you TTC?: We have the tentative month of November this year still, but we’re both thinking that we should get promotions prior to trying (which is a real possibility for both of us in the very near future)

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: We’re joining a gym next month! Going to work on my body so it’s in great shape for carrying baby. I’ll start prenatals when we have a more clear idea, maybe September. And I’m trying to get short term disability through my work/Aflec, but it’s been a real pain.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: I have and IUD and I’m just tracking periods right now to get an idea of my cycle length. Although that timing may all go out the window once the IUD is out, lol

What baby item are you currently obsessed with?: Just one?! I like the idea of flip diapers a lot, and DH is willing to try them, so I’ve been researching that a lot lately. There’s also a Graco Pack & Play, Stroller, and swing/bouncer in a coordinating teal, green and grey pattern at Target that I love!

@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  That bassinet is one bad motha (shut you mouth!)

@debinoxford:  Tell me more about these washable diapers! I like Flip Diapers because I’ll be going back to work after baby, so I can use the disposable inserts whenever someone else is watching baby. 

@Emma20130601: It seems like your hubby has a really fun job! It must be nice to do that together =)

  • Wedding: December 2011

ROLL CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Age: 27 (both DH and me)

When will you TTC?: Hopefully this winter (December/January).  It all depends on what happens in the next couple months with DH’s job, but we’re ready to start as soon as things look a little more stable.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Trying to get into the best shape possible (a constant struggle!), eating healthy (whole, unprocessed foods, lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grains), taking prenatals, just got off the pill and starting charting my cycle this month (I think I ovulated today!  Woohoo!)

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Yup! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/sadiebee

What baby item are you currently obsessed with?: Cloth diapers.  It seems like a weird one, but I’m convinced I want to CD (and DH is on board), so I’ve been doing lots of research on different types and brands.  I probably know way too much about the different options for cloth to catch pee and poo (especially for someone without children).


@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  That bassinet is adorable!  I know I’m going to want a bassinet, but haven’t started looking at specifics yet.  So many options!

@MrsDe2013:  I’ve been looking more into the Flips lately, and I think they’re my top contender right now.  I like that you can do either cloth or disposable inserts (and I’m not sure, but I think you could also just do the covers with regular prefolds as well).  I like that flexibility.
