When will you TTC?: May 2014 – I would be ready to start earlier but we’re planning a trip to Italy and I don’t really want to be pregnant during the trip. Although, sometimes I would love to just say never mind Italy, let’s just have a baby!!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Eat healthier, exercise more, I’m going to start reading up more on pregnancy and babies.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No, not yet.

All time favourite movie?: Gone with the Wind

When will you TTC?:  January 2014 is our ‘real’ TTC timeline but December isn’t totally out of the question. I am getting done with my LAST pack of BC in one week!! So we’ll play it safe for November and then see what happens.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Taking prenatal vitamins since late September, stalking reading the pregnancy and TTC boards, and I need to get my eating/exercising habits back to a regular routine.

Do you chart? Link to the chart:  I don’t chart, but I do have an app on my phone that predicts my ovulation and FW based on my period.

All time favourite movie?: That’s a tough one – my favorite serious/dramatic movie is probably Taken, my favorite comedy is Step Brothers or Bridesmaids.

@Emma20130601:  DH and I are going on a trip to Europe this June and I was SO torn about whether to TTC before the trip – we finally decided to give ourselves a window (December’ish to March) and if it doesn’t happen then, we’ll postpone TTC until after the trip. I can ony hope that I’ll be ok as a 3-5 month pregnant lady on the trip.  !!  It’s not just a trip for pleasure for the two of us, we’re taking students over there for a week and will have other chaperones with as well.

@E_Lynne615:  That sounds like a fun trip!! 🙂 I was wondering if we shouldn’t start TTC like 2 months before the trip, then I wouldn’t be very far along…but I don’t want to be sick and tired while we’re over there. It’s our honeymoon because we didn’t have any left over vacation time or money after the wedding. So, I can totally understand that torn feeling. I’m telling myself it’s only a few extra months, no big deal.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Reading about charting and planning to go off the pill, taking prenatals, paying off debt, staying active.

All time favourite movie?:  Oh man… this is a hard one!  I think Dirty Dancing would have to be my all time favorite.  Kiss

@Swizzle:  Psst.  I’m on the list twice.  Can you take me off the December 2013 list?  That was our original maybe timeline but September is the new timeline.  Thanks!

Age: We’re both 29.

When will you TTC?: September 2014.  Feels both far away and so close!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  I’ve been charting for over a year (we use FAM/Charting to avoid) so I have a good handle on my cycles.  Otherwise, trying to be healthy (can’t wait to start exercising again after my broken foot heals up!), and we’re trying to get as much home renos done as we can while we have some extra cash flow and time!

All time favourite movie?: Breakfast Club!  I can practically quote the whole thing.

So exciting, another roll call means another month closer to TTC!!



Age: I’m 22, DH is 24, will be 23 and 25 when we start TTC (young! but we have our act together, and want to pop out a few kids before hitting 30. Also unsure if I will have any difficulty getting KU since I have a very tilted cervix and had an eating disorder that took away AF for quite a while, so I like the idea of starting sooner just in case things take a while… SIL and her hubby have been trying for over a year so it makes me nervous)

When will you TTC?: June 2014!! My fertile week that month actually falls on our anniversary too, aww 🙂

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Just eating healthy, and I am charting just to get used to it.. I love it!

All time favourite movie?: Oh heavens I could never choose… though I guess I consider The Wedding Singer to be my lifetime fave… I’ve loved it ever since I was like 8 years old haha

Oh my. I totes fell off the face of the planet with our wedding coming up, sorry. 🙁

Age: 31, FI is 34

When will you TTC?: Holy bananas, we’re six weeks out!!! Not that I’m counting or anything…(FI is just as bad as I am; I think he would chuck the countdown out the window in a heartbeat if I didn’t have to fit into my dress). 😉

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Been off hormonal bc for a good long while (2 years), taking prenatals for the last two years, eating clean, and exercising. This week I finally weighed in within the healthy range my doctor gave me for the babymaking, which was a huge milestone. FI’s been picking up more freelance projects to help build the baby nest egg (we’re both a little panicky as it seems like we’re hemorrhaging money with the wedding being six weeks away). Umm…waiting very very impatiently. Man, it was hard seeing all those cute little ones in their costumes tonight!

Do you chart? Link to the chart: I don’t, but I do have my copy of TCOYF in the nightstand.

All time favourite movie?: …really? Hmm. The Godfather. Gone with the Wind. Or, lezzbehonest, Pitch Perfect. 😉
