I’m in! Only 2 months until we hit our first fertile window, but who’s counting?!

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: We are both 34

When will you TTC?: November 2014, provided surgery goes well

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: We’re both losing weight by eating healthier, and both taking our vitamins. We have severe MFI to deal with, so Mr. LK is scheduled for surgery next month. FX that the surgery will be a success!

Do you chart? Link to the chart: http://FertilityFriend.com/lovekiss

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: Our names are family names, so we are pretty firm on them, and totally in love with them. Our son would be named Thomas Marshall and our daughter would be named Mary Grace (and she would be called by her first and middle names, double barrel style). Our boy name is a blend of our maternal grandfather names, and our girl name is the name of Mr. LK’s Great-Grandmother, who helped raise Mr. LK.

Thanks for making a new thread! Our last one did get a bit quiet. Busy weekend for everyone I take it?

Age/DH’s age: I’m 28, he’s 27

When will you TTC?:  DH agreed on February… whether or not he sticks to it is another thing.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Went off the pill (a little over a week ago)! I need to get some hormone testing done and need to be off the pill for 3 months. I’m also losing some weight which is a big yay for me.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Yup buuut I use the Glow app. I never use the website so no idea on my link.

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: Am I weird for not really knowing the names I’d like for my future kids? Boy and girl twins would be pretty awesome though.

Age/DH’s age: Both 25

When will you TTC?:  We’ve decided to bump it up to January 2015!! (as long as we’ve bought a house or in the midst of closing on one, totally doable!)

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Taking prenatals and folate, and I just switched my thyroid medicine and had to add a couple supplements to get that sorted out in the next month or so. Also continuing to exercise and add in some more strength training and getting back into healthy eating habits.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: I use the Kindara app.

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: Evelyn or Lennon, and Weston, they are our top names for each so I guess we would use one of those combinations!

It’s so crazy to me that October is almost here! I don’t think it’ll hit me that TTC is so close until November gets here and then it’ll be like, OMG December is next, holy sh**!!! lol

Age/DH’s age: We’re both 26, almost 27.

When will you TTC?: December 🙂

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Started gummy prenatals last November and taking Pregnitude to help improve egg quality and regulate my cycles after a surprise pregnancy and subsequent early MC in June.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Yes! Stopped BCP and started charting in March after reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I thought it would be fun to see what my body does naturally and make sure it seemed to be working right before TTC. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/mrsfairybee

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: I am so paranoid about sharing baby names I like for fear that they’ll take off in popularity or something and ruin them for me. I haven’t even shared them with DH b/c he says he doesn’t want to discuss it until that actually happens so, sigh, I’ll just love them all by myself for now. And having twins would be terrifying both physically during the pregnancy (I’m small in stature, only 5’2″) and once they’re here it’d be double to care for…but it would also be so very cute and they’d be best friends from the get-go! 🙂

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I just turned 36 this weekend. He’s 37.

When will you TTC?:  Next month!!? We were talking this weekend, and my husband said he’d feel more comfortable if we close on the sale of my old house first. It’s under contract as a short sale, and we’re waiting on one last approval from one of the banks, so that’s entirely possible that it will be finished by next month.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  I went off the pill in September. I’ve been taking prenatals since early this year.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: I don’t plan to unless we go several months with no success.

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: I would probably name them Emily and Luke. I’m not sure about my husband – he always throws out silly names when we talk about it.

  • Wedding: January 2015

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I’m 24 (25 in a week), FI’s 28 (29 tomorrow!)

When will you TTC?: February 2015

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Taking folic acid. My attempts to eat healthy have been a bit of a failure so I might start taking prenatals soon so that I am getting all the vitamins that I need. Hopefully getting an insulin pump soon (type 1 diabetic) which will make controlling my blood sugars before and during pregnancy so much easier!

Do you chart? Link to the chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/janelle123

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: My top two right now are Isla & Isaac, I change my mind about names daily though lol

Thanks for the new thread!!

Age/DH’s age: I’m 28, he’s 32

When will you TTC?:  OCTOBER!!!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Taking prenatals, eating better, getting into shape, reading up on pregnancy/parenthood, trying to calm the DH down and make sure that he knows everything is going to be okay! 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not yet! We are just going to wing it until the end of the year. If we aren’t pregnant by January I am going to start charting.

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: Oh my gosh, DH and I could talk all day and night about baby names. We can’t decide! If it was totally up to me, it would be Matthew and Alison, but DH will never agree to those names. (And dear lord I hope I never have twins!!)
