jily:  Sounds you like we will be TTC around the same time. Your DH husband sounds like he want to have quite a few babies, I’m wishing you the best of luck with a quick and stress free conception of baby # 1.

cristinamarie92:  Right, that darn NUVARING has been indefinitely exiled from our home . I’ve been charting since that time to avoid pregnancy but I am a bit worried about what contraceptive we will use bewteen baby #1 and baby #2.

MrsLeb:  April is around the corner, I’m sure you’re super excited. I’m already excited, nervous, anxious about May.

doubtingdebbieah:  We have a very similar timeline with TTC and weight loss. I’m going to get strict with my fitness journey next week. I’d like to loose 10-15. It doesn’t sound like much but  for me they just wont fall off!

teacherbee01:  I haven’t actually purchased anything but I have been strolling down some baby aisles to price check items I like. Just trying to make sure I’m not in shock when its time to buy things for baby.

The one thing I think I’ll look into buying is the item I want to give DH hubby when I find out we are expecting.

BreezyBride24:  Yeah…I definitely agree with you on that note, Hopefully the charting to avoid pregnancy works out for you ! I will probably look into the non hormal IUD after my first child ( I’m too much of a whimp to try to get it inserted not having had children before). I’m over all the extra hormones that get me moody & emotional.

BreezyBride24:  ahh! I want to so bad lol. We live near some great kiddie consignment stores that have nice clothes at a fraction of the price and I want it all!

We got married in June 2015 and are planning to TTC Fall 2016 and I’m so excited! Already went to all our doctors and did the annuals so now it’s a waiting game. I’m scared we won’t have enough savings but we are both planning accordingly and just focusing on moving up at work for now.

I wanna join a gym and work on my core so birth will be easier and hope my sister gets pregnant first because I really think she’ll hate me forever (she’s TTC right now for her first as well).

teacherbee01:  I have been given: a patriots onsie, two doctor who ones onsies and a onsie that says Pluto is a dog not a planet with a cartoon Pluto. These were all gifts. I’m not preggers. But my friends really want me to have a baby. I am the oldest at 24 almost 25. So I think they want me to have a kid to get rid of their baby fever.

ChelseaGabrielle:  I’m just trying to focus on being as healthy as I can be until then. I’ll start on prenatals three months out! 

We are waiting because we’d originally said we’d start TTC after our first anniversary (August). Then we decided we could/should move it up to Jan/Feb 2016, which was fine — except then I was asked to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man in an October 2016 wedding. By going back to our original August 2016 timeline, I can avoid potnetially being many many months pregnant at the 10/16 wedding!

Glad I’m not the only one impatiently waiting! I have international travel plans in June 2016, so we’ll be starting around then. Either right before I go/right after I get back, depending on timing. We’re going to NTNP for the first while, charting and all that will stress me out wayyyy too much. So since I won’t be charting/temping, I’m wondering when I get stop my pill? I was thinking just whnever I finished my June pack and see where it goes from there. Or should I stop it earlier, but then risk getting pregnant earlier than expected?

CanadianBride456:  I wouldn’t go off your pills until you’re ready to be pregnant!  Unless, of course, you use other protection like condoms of FAM/charting.  You can definitely get pregnant with a few weeks of quitting your pill.  Some people do go off earlier in case their cycle isn’t regular straight away but you definitely need to use other protection if you don’t want to be pregnant immediately.

cristinamarie92:  You know what that sounds like a great game pla, I might go in that direction as well. I’ll have to do some research, but I have plenty of time for that!

jily:  Yeah, that would be nice. That way we can keep track of all the mommy-to-bes and their journey. Sometimes I find it hard not to spill the beans that we are going to start trying in MAY. We were getting SO many questions about babies over the holidays about babies, but I didn’t want to slip up becuase I want it to be a fun pressure free experience for DH and I.

So a 2016 TTC board would be great for the sall talk .

HesworththeWait:  Half off discounts + absoulte cuteness can equal some real shopping damage. On the bright side at least when the time comes you have a good little nook to find some cute things. I’ve been thinking about a baby clothes a lot, and a possible buniess opportunity for recycling baby clothes…mainly turning in your babies lightly used clothes to get new ones in a different size.  I’m a frugal shopper so sometimes I get a little rattled about the cost of babies.

And I’m right there with you on the gym hype. I keep telling myself “work out for the baby” and “try to eat right for the baby”…might as well start building good habits now. I’m planning on doing a few 30 day abb challenges…let me know if you’re interested I’d be happy to share!

andielle:  Don’t worry! We’re years out as well, but I’m so excited too. I’m worried too about raising a baby with the prospect of not having my family around to help out.

BeckyS0:  We’re paying down debt too before moving to TTC. We finally sat down today and sorted out how fast we could pay down debt and what type of shape we’re in retirement wise and earning wise and my DH was so pleasantly shocked to see how we’re doing. He actually saw that we’d be out of debt in one-ish year and then I’d earn enough with my job to sufficiently contribute to our retirement without him working (great since he wants to go back to school before becoming a stay at home parent). When he saw this, he all of the sudden changed his tune to “we could have a baby next year!”. I was floored!

mrsfrendo11:  Good luck this month! I worry too about how this will affect our relationship, because my DH grew up with divorced parents and a blended family. I think that makes him much more determined to work things out and not let them boil and fester because he saw what that did to his parents.

teacherbee01:  We bought this! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ We have boxer dogs and I just couldn’t resist it. Every so often I will check out the baby section at the shops. They always have specials on, but I don’t buy anything because it’s either girl or boy and I don’t want to buy the wrong gender or wrong sizes for the season our baby will be born in. I have bought some animals prints for the nursery and some books (but I’m obssessed with kids books lol). We’ve also laybuyed a nursery package. We’re four months in TTC so it’s probably a little early to be lay buying furniture but it was save $500 so we just went with it ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜
