    @MrsPuddingface:  HI! *waves* Ummm…THREE girls?!  Seriously??  Whew, you’ll have your work cut out for you, lady! Unless they’re all angels like you, that is….;) 

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE): CD2, Cycle 8 

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY: April 15

    AGE: 31

    CHART LINK: 

    ISSUES (IF ANY): None that we know of.

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS, GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER): I really want a girl at some point, so when I’m actually KU, I think I’ll kind of be hoping for a girl. BUT, if we’re talking “in a perfect world” and I knew I could have a girl whenever, then I would want boy, girl, girl. I loved having an older brother, so I’d love to have an older boy/younger girl combo.  And I’m best friends with my sister, so I would love to have 2 girls for that.  DH wants 2 kids, both boys.  So, we’ll see who wins. πŸ˜‰

    @MrsPuddingface:  There you go. πŸ˜‰  I know I may sound a little crazy, but seriously, my nieces are a handful, boys aside, and I’m a little scared of even having 2 girls!  So much drama and turmoil in teenage girls’ lives!

    @FreckledFox:  @MrsCarnival:  Good call with the 2 decimal place thermometer suggestion – I’ll get one for next month!

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE): CD24/8DPO, Cycle 2

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY: Every day till AF or BFP False alarm on the previous O date. So, unless I ovulate today I’m likely out till next cycle as there will be no BDing any time soon.

    AGE: 30 (DH is 33)

    CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/bananasareyellow

    ISSUES (IF ANY): Darling Husband and I only see each other one week a month (until May), so timing is all about luck. I never seem to have fertile CM, so we use Preseed around O time.  This month I have doubts if I truely O’d…time will tell!  Got my first EWCM! Maybe we can ditch the preseed! This is looking like a long cycle though – still waiting for O -hopefully that’s not my norm. I hate waiting for things to happen!

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS, GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER): Three kids, any mix of girls and boys. Darling Husband is 100% convinced our first will be a boy and second will be a girl. I’m fine with any order. πŸ™‚

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY:  I’m going to try to hold out until Sunday…I may will cave and test Saturday at 9DPO…

    CHART LINK:  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/doxielove

    ISSUES (IF ANY):  None that I’m aware of

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS,  GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER):  If our first is a boy, we may end up being one-and-done.  If our first is a girl, we’ll probably try for a second.  I’ve always wanted a son and I’m indifferent to having a daughter (don’t get me wrong, I’ll be completely in love with my child regardless of sex!)

    Hi Friends! I guess I will try and be more active on this one? I can’t believe that the last thread is already over. I just posted my lovely face (ha!) like yesterday…..oy vey!

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE): CD9, Started TTC Aug 2012 

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY:  ? Hopefully mid-April 

    AGE: 30

    CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/bogb

    ISSUES (IF ANY): PCOS, Irregular and long cycles

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS, GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER):  I want 3. Two boys and a girl. Not sure of the order though. Darling Husband wants at least a basketball team of kids, but ideally a baseball or football team full.  Seriously. When we started dating some 12 years ago, he told me he wanted like 6 or 8. To which I said, oh hell no, I don’t think this is going to work for us. Either way, it’s good thing he took so long to propose, I ain’t got enough time to pop out 6.  (At least, I hope I don’t).

    @MrsPuddingface:  3 girls!? Bless your heart. I will take what I get, but that doesn’t sound ideal to me. I taught for middle school for 7 years, and girls were tough!

    @hardtoconcentrate: I used to think I only wanted boys, but I’m with you, I want at least one girl. I love the relationship I have with my mom and would love to build something like that with a daughter.

    @calibee79: Oh sad face about AF.  However, yay for officially TTC!!

    Woah now – game changer! Just went to evacuate my bladder and WTH! EWCM! That’s what that looks like!

    Good news – my body is able to make more than vag lotion.

    Bad news – no more crosshairs. πŸ™

    Even worse news – Darling Husband is back across the country so no FW BDing this month.

    Going to chalk it up to being only 2 months off the pill. Hopefully by May when Darling Husband is here for good I’ll figure out WTH my body is doing and it’ll be on like donky kong!  I’ll go back and edit my roll call if it’ll let me. πŸ™‚

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE): CD33/5DPO or 3DPO, depending on which FF detector mode you believe. Cycle 2 after BCP. I put the “late” in ovulate!

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY: Wednesday next week (March 27). It might be a bit early, but I’ll be heading out of town on Thursday to visit the in-laws for the long weekend and would prefer not to find out there or have to wait until I’m back.

    AGE: I’m 34, Darling Husband is 38

    CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/PlusOne

    While you’re there, do me a favor and vote on which day you think was O day. I’m at a loss, and I’m curious what you ladies think.

    ISSUES (IF ANY): Just age and recovery from 12.5 years of BCP, I hope.

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS, GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER): 

    For the longest time I wanted to have a boy first and then a girl. I grew up with an older brother and we had a great dynamic, so I’m biased by that. Also, I got to tag along on a lot of rough and tumble adventures with my brother and his friends as a kid, which was a blast. Darling Husband got put in dresses and makeup by his older sister. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course, but I’m betting I had more fun then Darling Husband did.

    That being said, Darling Husband and I have all nephews and our parents all want a little granddaughter to fuss over and spoil. Who am I to argue? I’ve warmed to the idea of having a girl first, and especially just in case we don’t get around to having a second. But when it comes down to it, I will take whatever we get and be totally content with it.

    P.S. I hope starting this thread does the trick for you, @MrsPuddingface

    ROLL CALL!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE):  CD33/maybe 13 DPO? 4th cycle

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY:  Erm.. yesterday

    AGE: 31 (DH is 39)

    CHART LINK:  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/terisa2012

    ISSUES (IF ANY):  shortish LP (11 days) with spotting.. cycles are still a little wonky after stopping BCP

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS,  GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER):  We definitely want 2, maybe 3 depending on how the first two go (and how long it takes).  I am with @hardtoconcentrate:  in that I reaaally would love a girl but I like the idea of an older brother.  But, I still voted for girl first. πŸ™‚
     

    @MrsPuddingface:  Thank you so much for that detailed look at my chart!!  I think if it wasn’t for the spotting / cramping I’ve already had that I would definitely assume I hadn’t O’d despite the few high temps.  Since I had spotting / cramping plus an acne breakout I really felt like I DID O.  But now my temps are so low and there is no sign of AF.  You are right, I guess I just have to wait it out.  It’s almost like I had two rises in progesterone followed by falls, ya know?  I don’t know if that is possible without O’ing.  I feel so hormonally challenged!! :-/

    Holy cow a new thread already!

    TTC or TTA: TTA (T minus 2ish months!)

    CD/DPO, # OF CYCLES TRYING (OR TTC START-DATE): CD43/12DPO, but I think I’m less days dpo, not feeling AF coming quite yet and normally I’m cramping by now. TTC start date is June-ish

    ESTIMATED POAS DAY: I guess if nothing happens by the end of next week I’ll POS but there would have to be some divine intervention for me to be KU. lol

    AGE: 24 and 28

    CHART LINK:

    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/Woodstock

    ISSUES (IF ANY): Long cycles that seem to be severly agitated by exercise. lol

    DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT FAMILY SETUP (HOW MANY KIDS, GENDERS, BIRTH ORDER): I really want 4-5 kids (I know crazy! but I love big families) and I don’t really care about birth order so long as I get one of each πŸ™‚ I think it’d be nice to have more girls though since I never had a sister and Darling Husband doesn’t have any either. Also, if we start having too many boys, we’ll probably have a hard time coming up with names. Boy names are SO difficult!
