I just wanted to tell the world that we are officially trying! I can’t wait, we are getting married in October and are hoping to be able to make an announcement at the wedding!! I’m just so excited that I had to tell someone. Any tips or advice are welcome!
ohhhhhh so excited!! Thanks for sharing this news with me 🙂

@TraLo: It’s exciting that you are trying, and I don’t want to rain on your parade in case you DO get pregnant before your wedding, but I would strongly caution against announcing it at your wedding dur to the fact that the risk of miscarriage is much higher in the first 12 weeks, and I don’t know how you would feel telling everyone your big news only to have to call each one and tell them if, God forbid, something were to happen.
Good luck TTC!

Congrats! We’re on our second cycle trying. My advice is to relax, have fun, and have lots of sex, especially in the middle of your cycle. Start taking a prenatal vitamin if you aren’t already, and keep track of what day your period starts so you have an idea of when you can test. Have fun and happy baby-making!

Yay, good luck! I second the prenatal vitamins… Also, I know some people wait to go this route but I used an OPK since I’m neurotic and wanted to know exactly when I was ovulating. Definitely recommend them!

@megz06: Good point.
Miscarriages are very common and while announcing at the wedding would be fun, it would probably be better if you were in your second trimester. But that is your call, many people announce early. It is just something to be aware of.

Congratulations!!! I am sure there will be lots of ups and downs in your process of TTC. Just stay positive and don’t stress!

Hey ladies, I’d love to not tell anyone until the first trimester is over but as soon as I find out I’m pregnant my job drastically changes as I have to tell people at work due to the dangers involved if I dont. A few of those people are going to the wedding and by default will know and I’d rather be the one to announce it to my family then strangers they haven’t met. I’d much rather not tell a soul until the hurdle is cleared but I’m not sure how to avoid it really.
