Wooo! Finally a roll call I can participate in!!!

ROLL CALL!

TTC Start Month : September will be our first month actually trying! July and August we aren’t trying but if it happens it happens.

Usual Cycle Length: 26 days but this is an estimation given I haven’t had AF since removing my IUD earlier this month.

Cycles trying: 

Baby #: 1!!

Age/SO Age: 31/37, but I’ll be 32 in October 

BFP Plan: Taking two types of prenatals including one with DHA, bought some OPKS but I have no idea how to use them! I’ve been keeping track of my AF since May but I will start charting a little more! We are also trying to take the more relaxed approach at first.

Fears: It taking a long time to get a BFP. I have a factor V mutation so I’m afraid I’ll need to take Lovenox shots for the duration of my pregnancy. Going to a preconception meeting with my OBGYN in a few weeks. Also: All sorts of first child fears. Do we have enough time, money, sleep, space? How will this change our relationship (we’ve been together 10 years! So it’s bound to change it a lot!)

Excited for: See my husband holding his newborn baby… he’s going to be a great dad! Having a baby me! Haha 

Team Green?: We haven’t discussed this yet.

We’ll be trying for our first baby in September. I’m so new to all of this that I don’t even know what half of the acronyms mean, let alone the length of my cycle! If anyone can clue me in on the BFNs and the OPKNs, I’d love to be able to join in with the chat.

Ah thank you so much! I’ve been reading the threads on pregnancy for a few weeks without a clue as to what was being said half of the time! 

I don’t have a natural cycle at the moment because I’m on the pill. I’ll look into those apps though. September isn’t far away!

unlikelybride :  I use Flo for my cycle length but I haven’t had a proper AF since 2012! So I’ll still waiting for it to arrive post IUD removal.

TTC Start Month : October. Honestly, we might NTNP in September as well, but we’re kind of undecided. October is our for sure start time.

Usual Cycle Length: 30-31 days

Cycles trying: 

Baby #: 2 (#1 turns 4 in August!)

Age/SO Age: 26/32 (he turns 32 in Nov)

BFP Plan: I already take a prenatal. I just ordered some cheapy OPK’s and pregnancy test off amazon. I don’t plan to take it easy because that’s not who I am haha! 

Fears: I had a very tramatic birth with my son, so honestly, i’m kind of nervous for my pregnancy. Also, I have been working out and eating right this whole year (dropped 35 pounds so far since January) and I’m really nervous that getting pregnant will revert me to unhealthy habits. I’m really going to try to maintain my healthy lifestyle and workout during my pregnancy. 

Excited for: Another little one! I miss my son being a baby. Also excited to see my son be a big brother. Just excited for everything. 

Team Green?: Wasn’t with my son and probably won’t be with this one either. I enjoy planning and liked feeling that connection once I knew my son was a boy. He then had a name and I just felt more in tune with him if that makes sense. I do want to do some cool gender reveal (not a party, but like family pics of just us finding out).

I forgot to do this bit!

ROLL CALL!

TTC Start Month : September

Usual Cycle Length: I’m not sure, I’ve been on the pill for a looooong time

Cycles trying: 0 

Baby #: 1! 

Age/SO Age: 32/28

BFP Plan: I have prenatal pills that I’m going to start taking next month. Other than that, we’re just going to see what happens. I’ll probably try to track my ovulation too. Need to look into those apps!

Fears: Yes. All of the fear. Will we be good parents? How will my body cope with pregnancy? How am I going to squeeze a melon sized object out of my ladyparts? Will I pee a little bit every time I sneeze after childbirth?

Excited for: To make a tiny human that is half my and half my Darling Husband. To have a proper little family. To see our son/daughter play with our dog.

Team Green?: Yup.

ROLL CALL!

TTC Start Month : November (Currently projected to be Nov 27, 2018)

Usual Cycle Length: 27 days

Cycles trying:

Baby #: 1

Age/SO Age: 30/32

BFP Plan: Prenatals, OPKS, and perhaps Q-10. It teems that my luteal phase is a bit short (i.e., 9 – 10 days)

Fears: I’ll have issues getting/staying pregnant. I have a blood clotting disorder (i.e., prothrombin mutation g20210a) that has the potential to cause some issues  I also worry that our relationship will change in a negative way.

Excited for: Baby snuggles and to see my hubby become a dad!

Team Green?: Nope, I’m way too impatient haha

teacher-bee-in-the-sea :  I have a blood clotting disorder too (prothrombin mutation g20210a), which we’re worried will cause issues. I’m a researcher, so naturally I’ve read every study published hahaha  Have you had a chance to talk to your doctor? Mine recently sent in a referral to a hemotologist at a materal medicine unit.

TTC Start Month : December

Usual Cycle Length: 25 days

Cycles trying: 

Baby #: 1

Age/SO Age: 35/35

BFP Plan: Don’t really have a plan to be honest.  I use an app to track my periods and ovulation on a casual basis, so I’m just going to go by that and maybe buy some OPKs.

Fears: It won’t happen and I will have to accept that fact.  Fiance and I don’t plan to use any fertility interventions; if it happens, great, but if not, being parents is not a dealbreaker for us.

Excited for: Potential cousins for my brother’s little girl due in October!

Team Green?: Definitely would not want to find out!

Yay! Super excited to be able to participate in one of these 🙂

ROLL CALL!

TTC Start Month : October (We’re on the fence about September as well but as of right now, for sure in October)

Usual Cycle Length: 30-35 days (I have PCOS so for a while I was only getting 4-5 periods a year, but I have since lost 40 lbs and it seems to have helped with my cycle)

Cycles trying: 

Baby #: 1!

Age/SO Age: 29/30

BFP Plan: Have been taking prenatals, ordered some OPKs, scheduled an appointment with my fertility doctor for blood work and ultrasound to see if he thinks I need to be on any medication for my PCOS to help us get our BFP

Fears: Not being able to conceive on my own (with or without medication) and it taking years and years to get our BFP

Excited for: To see my husband holding a newborn, I know he will be an amazing father!  Also to see a little mini version of us that we created! 

Team Green?: If it were all up to me, I would be team green all the way but my husband has absolutely no patience.  I think we will find out with our first and any babies after that we won’t.
