This is my first post in the baby area! Yikes! FHhas been on the baby train.. Scratch that, he’s been driving it for quite awhile now! I’ve been fighting the TTC thing and telling him I’m not ready but… Is slowly changing. He is 32 and I’m 30 (be 31 in dec) so its kind of time we start thinking about kids. I finally was able to get hm to agree to not try For a hm baby which I’m not interested iN at all, but more and more I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind trying very soon after the wedding.
His sister had a baby 3 weeks ago, my best friend had one Friday, my other best friend just got her iud out and they will be TTC in fall. I have serious baby on the brain lately and feel 100% ready! How did I get here so fast! Lol
Just wanted to see if anyone else out there would be TTC around the same time, maybe we can all chat and support each other!

Wow! You are further in the boat than I am, I have one leg overboard still ;). I still have to have my iud removed before we Ttc but it’s non hormonal so there isn’t a waiting pd or anything. Maybe I should look into things I should do to get ready for it, like taking prenatals etc

We are going to wait (we actually have a pact not to even mention “the b word” for a year). But I just wanted to say good luck to my fellow August’ers 🙂

I’m fairly close to you guys but totally not ready this year – Maybe the following spring. We’ll see – I’m turning 38 this July.
Good luck to those thinking about it!

Yey! We’re date twins! We’re thinking of a honeymoon baby ourselves! And, in fact, have stopped TTA….we’re kinda in the NTNTC stage. We’re getting so close, it’s exciting!

Count me in too ladies. I’ll be right behind you! We are hoping and praying for a Honeymoon conception, if only we could get so lucky. But we are definitely going to TTC immediately. I’ve been off the pill for a month now and taking prenatals as well. I have also lost 40 pounds since November and are working on the last 10 for the wedding in September. But really the weight is more to get baby ready. I want to be as healthly as I can. 🙂

@morkiemama: Yay date twins! W’ell have to keep track of each other haha
I think what makes this scary/real for me is that I have to have my IUD removed to get pregnant. It seems so much more literal and real to have to physically go to the dr and have them take it out rather than just not continuing to take a pill (I used to forget mine all the time anyway lol)

I am in as well. Just started taking my vitamins and hope to hit it on our first month of try. I will be turning 36 in September and this would be my first time TTC, I’m super excited! Good luck to everyone! 🙂

We were going to try for a honeymoon baby, but I am on medication that won’t allow me to be pregnant while on it. I should be finished early July and they say to be off for a month before trying, but we want to be safe so we’ll be waiting until September or October if I can wait that long 🙂 I just turned 22 and were hoping since I’m still youngish it will happen quickly I have the worst patience for waiting.

Our wedding date is 8/3/12 🙂 and we have been talking about joining the baby train as well (I just turned 30 about 1 1/2 ago and he is will be 31 in November. We totally agree on waiting until after the honeymoon to TTC, even more, to start in January ’13 but… the more baby talk I hear and the more expecting moms I see, I want to just wait until after the honeymoon and start from there!

We just got married in June and my last pack of birth control pills will be next month. As of August we will be “NTNTC” sort of…I think we are hoping it doesn’t happen until at least October but anytime after AUgust we will be prepared for. It feels so surreal. I worry that I will get pregnant right away after stopping BCP, but then I switch to worrying that it will take us longer than we expected and I will panic. I turn 28 Jan 2013 and I want to be pregnant by then for sure. I go through all the what ifs over and over, but I don’t want to share it with Darling Husband because he is a little baby shy. He agreed to the time frame but I can tell he is nervous and in no hurry..so I fear any serious baby talk will shut him down. Haha!! I kind of just hope it happens and not a whole lot of thought or planning will have to go into conceiving. I have been taking vitamins for a couple of months and trying to be more active. I would like to lose 5 more pounds before we get pregnant but I sort of doubt that will really happen. I have been chasing that last 5 pounds for a year!!
Anyway, I am really excited for everyone and can’t believe I am in this boat with you guys!!

I’m on the pill, and will finish my pack on the 22nd of August. After that pack, we are officially pulling the goalie! We get married on the 19th of September, and we’re preparing my body for TTC right afterwards. I hear it can take as little as a few days and as long as 12 weeks for your body to adjust to being off the pill, so we’re giving ourselves a little head-start.
We’ve been together for 5 years now, and I just turned 30. As soon as we’re married it’s ON!
Congratulations Ladies! I hope you all have smooth sailing in your efforts!!!! It’s so exciting!!!!
