POAS Date: December 3rd
Usual Cycle Length: 29 – 32 days
Cycles Trying: This will be our 6th 🙁

Trying anything new this month? Relaxing more (I’ve said this in the past) but more baths, more romance, less stress. I also may try to just eat healthier overall… considering replacing coffee with a morning smoothie!
And a fun question, what holiday traditions do you plan to do with your kids? Definitely Christmas is huge for me! I can’t wait to have my kids decorate my tree and see the look on their faces Christmas morning when Santa comes! Also – Easter and Thanksgiving!
Can I add one? If anyone feels like it, tell me any name choices you have been thinking about! I don’t know why, but this has really been on my mind lately and I feel like Ive narrowed my search down!

Yayyy!! I’m so excited to finally be TTC again! I have wanted to be pregnant since 3 months post partum with my first. Well, not the actual pregnant part, but another little babe! 🙂
Your age/partner’s age: 32/32
Current Cycle Day/DPO: I’m not sure, I have only had one period PP and still breastfeeding.
Ovulation Date: I believe it will be December 12th if my November period shows up when expected.
POAS Date: Christmas Eve!
Usual Cycle Length: 39-40 days
Cycles Trying: 1 (we got lucky on the first try last time)
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Just lots of BD in the fertile window!
Trying anything new this month? Yep, actually getting some haha
And a fun question, what holiday traditions do you plan to do with your kids? Yes! I’m so excited it will be DD’s first christmas. My family is big on traditions. We will be doing a shoebox gift on Christmas Eve (just DH, DD and me) where we each get pajamas, snack and a few other small things. We put up our Christmas tree in October. And we will make gingerbread houses every year.
Any names picked out? I had a huge list of possible names from my first that we didn’t use but I don’t like any of them now. Back to the drawing board! I like Eloise for a middle name. Boy names are so hard!

I love your name choices! All of the girl ones I love but couldn’t use for various reasons (last name starts with H and I don’t like the double H, niece has a “lyn” name and Katelyn is DH’s ex)! I was thinking Charlie for a boy too! But read that it’s more popular for girls now and I don’t like unisex names.

I like the name question!
Our daughter is Charlotte Renee, we’re definitely all for more “traditional names”
For a boy: Timothy, Jackson, Peter, or Andrew
For a girl: Jessica, Brianna, Hannah, or Sarah

Is it ok if I join???
Your age/partner’s age: 26 (I’ll be 27 by next month though)/26
Baby #: 1
Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 6
Ovulation Date: Nov. 19-20 (which is my birthday! What a great gift that would be )
POAS Date: Dec 3 (though I’ll probably cave and start testing earlier than that)
Usual Cycle Length: 31-33 days
Cycles Trying: Cycle #7
BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BD at least EOD during FW (possibly everyday if we can manage it!), charting CM, prescription prenatals, evening primrose oil, using Preseed… I started taking Mucinex last cycle but it just tasted soooo bad that I stopped halfway through, so I may or may not try that again
Trying anything new this month? I’ve been on 3 rounds of Clomid, so we’re taking a break from that for this cycle. My husband has an SA scheduled for next week so we’re hoping for good results from that. And I go for an HSG sometime next month after AF arrives.
And a fun question, what holiday traditions do you plan to do with your kids? My husband’s family all exchange one gift from each other on Christmas Eve, so we’ll probably do that as well. And of course we’ll be leaving food out for Santa and his reindeer
Any names picked out? I personally love Arabella and Aiden, but my husband is not a fan of either . I also like Emma Leigh, Penelope Anne, Aaron Lucas, and Nathan Everett.

Welcome! You’re absolutely allowed to join. I’ll post an update to the list on Thursday when I’m back at the office (clearly working hard).
Love Christmas Eve gifts, we used to always open our presents on Christmas Eve (as Christmas Day was super busy with Church, grandparents and dinner).

Haha! Too funny about the names. Love them both but yea, don’t think I could get past the Arrow connection either.
My DD is 10.5 months. We were going to start trying when she was a year but baby fever has taken over! Good for you for throwing yourself right into the fire! They will be very close 🙂
