@princessbelle:  A trip to Europe sounds amazing! I can’t wait to hear about it.

@MrsCaruso2be:  I love disneyland! What a magical place to go. Don’t forget to visit disney’s city hall and get the just married buttons. We did that a few months after our weding. 

@MissFireFlower:  I had huge break out issues when I went off my BCP in early April. It sucked! I also gained a couple of pounds, but I’m not sure if it was of the pill or another medication I went off, but either way super furstrating especially when I’m working out 3-5 days a week and eating healthy.

Then Darling Husband and I will be going away for two weekends in August once I am home..one weekend at the beach and a wedding weekend. I am just hoping we have a chance to see each other enough to begin TTC.

I just wanted to come on here and vent a little, I’ve been feeling very depressed about waiting to TTC lately. The situation I’m in is that basically Darling Husband is looking for his calling in life, trying to figure out what he wants to do in terms of his career. Ideally, he wants to have his own business. This has been going on for months and until he gets to a place where he is comfortable with his career there will be no TTC. I feel sad that I don’t even have a date for when we will start.

I’m very ready to TTC. Also, I’m 28 (and a half). We always said we’d have our first by 30 at the latest but in order to achieve that we’d have to start trying really soon. The whole thing just kills me every day, I think about it all the time and there is nothing I can do to change the situation.

I’ve spoken to Darling Husband, he knows how I feel. He’s sympathetic but unwilling to budge. I’m not sure if there is any advice to give in my situation but let me know if you have any.

@candy11:  Changed my nickname on FF, thank you!

@ThePrincessBride10612:  Yay, thanks! Somehow I have a fever today (later in the morning), but a my early morning temping time, my temperature was high, but not fever high. We’ll see. Since it’s my first month of charting and we aren’t planning to TTC immediately, I have some time to figure it out.

UPDATE! Add me to the list please!

Age: 31

When will you TTC?: Just before we get married in December

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Came off BC in March when I found out I was pregnant (sadly lost it at 7 weeks) and have stayed off it, have cut dramatically down on caffeine, will start charting soon and taking prenatals. I also need a high dose of folic acid to help try and minimize the chance of cleft palette/lip (OH first two sons both were born with it). Dr thinks it’s pointless but I’ve read some research stuff and I’m willing to try ANYTHING. 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No yet. 

What are the big plans for the summer?: Planning for our wedding in December. No big plans other than that as can’t afford to. Might do the odd 40’s/50’s rockabilly weekender…

@shaniqua:  O no, I’m sorry to see that. I don’t have any words of advice, but I can just imagine how frustrating that would be. 

I guess my only comment is that I believe it will be infinitely better when BOTH of you are on the same page and ready to TTC, despite the fact that it may be later than you want.

@Swizzle:  I don’t know if they’ll work for you too, but clay masks help me out a lot, I use them once a week to soak up lots of excess oil.  If you have access to a LUSH Cosmetics, their “Cupcake” and “Catastrophe Cosmetic” masks are SO nice!  “Cosmetic Warrior” works well, too, but I don’t like the smell that much.
