PetuniaPie:  To have a house in Greece-wouldn’t that be nice? DH had the same dental work! It cost us about $2,000 :(. My family has a things for real estate. We love looking at homes, but we will definitely have baby #1 while in an apartment and I’m okay with that. I don’t want to rush into buying before we’re fully ready.

Ha, wouldn’t it? I could name so many other things to spend $2k on that would be way more enjoyable than dental work. So many! Thank goodness it wasn’t more. Hopefully, FI’s work will be around that. We love looking at houses, too! I was looking at houses on Zillow today and found one that looked pretty great until I got to one photo that had some weird creepy doll. No thanks. I’m with you on wanting to be fully ready. We discussed buying for a while now but it makes no sense to be paying for a home we might not be living in. It’s a bit of a waiting game.

KatiePi:  I think if I were to get tested and actually be carrying the gene, and if my DH also happens to carry the gene, then I believe it is a 25% chance that we could have a baby with CF. Which is pretty big in my opinion. I will definitely get tested soon since we are thinking about starting TTC in October. It’s too bad that I didn’t know about this like a week sooner because I was just at my doctors for my annual physical and have to get routine blood work done. I could have asked for the test then! Now I just have to schedule another appointment with the doc to get the test ordered. I’ll probably do it in August or something, once we have settled in after we move.

SaltedCaramel:  Was the test a blood test or saliva? Do you have CF in your family?

LuckyinLove17:  I was also tested for CF at my last annual exam (and it was a blood test) – I told my doctor that we’re planning to TTC soon, so it was recommended so that we could get my DH tested if needed before we started to try.  My results were negative, thank goodness – I hope yours are too!  Either way, like you said, as long as one of you is negative for the gene you’ll be fine.

SaltedCaramel:  Ok just curious!

 

P.S. We were also obsessed with real estate for awhile there when we were looking. We currently live in an apartment which we love, but have definitely grown out of over the last 4 years. We started our search last September and just bought in April for an August move in date! It’s really only a small upgrade to a 2 bedroom townhome since everything in Toronto is priced crazy as well. But we think it will suit us and a baby just fine for a few years. Then we might look at buying something bigger once we have put some equity in our new house. I’m so excited to move! The planning for that is almost enough to distract me from baby thoughts, but not fully! lol

SaltedCaramel:  It’s great for the most part but a bit lonely at times, especially now that we are planning to start a family next year I’m thinking about not having family and friends around. That will stink. We have our own business so we’re constantly traveling, my Fiance more so than myself. I try to limit my travel since I have high blood pressure and making a 24 hour journey in one weekend isn’t ideal.

So I’m once again undecided about a TTC date. I had decided on Feb 2015 since that is when my honeymoon is and I didn’t want to be sick for it. BUT yesterday I saw that TCOYF is predicting AF to be due on my wedding day! I know its still a few months out so it may change but my cycles are pretty regular so I think it’s prediction is probably going to be accurate. I do not want AF on my wedding! I especially do not want to be on CD1 of my cycle because I get extremely bad cramps and often have to leave work because of them.

I jokingly said to Fiance (well, said in a joking way but was serious lol) that we should just get pregnant in December so that I won’t have AF on our wedding day. He just replied with “you reckon?”… Hmmm what do you ladies think? How sick would I be for the honeymoon at 9 weeks preg? I know that it may not happen first try anyway but is it worth a shot to avoid AF on the big day?

Janelle123:  Haha, how about you split the difference and try in January?  You never know, you might be one of those “first shot” couples – and then you’d likely still feel great for your honeymoon.  I have read that it’s around 8-9 weeks for a lot of women when their morning sickness and exhaustion kick in – you never know how your body will react, but it might stink to be sick and tired your whole honeymoon.

SadieBee:  I guess I’m trying to decide which will be worse. Having AF and bad cramps on my wedding day or being sick on my honeymoon.

I’ve been lurking on the charters thread and I saw that people are having raspberry red leaf tea to lengthen their LP’s (aswell as some other benefits). Maybe if I start taking that it will change my cycle enough to move my AF date so that it will no longer be due on my wedding day. Though, maybe the excuse of being due for AF to push forward TTC is subconsciously very appealing to me… I want a baby now! haha

Janelle123:  Ahh, I did not pick up on the fact that your wedding is Jan and honeymoon is Feb 🙂 It’s a tough call!  If it were me and DH were up for it, I’d pick TTC earlier just because I’m officially baby crazy.  But feeling crappy on your honeymoon would also not be fun.  Tough decision!

As far as the RRL tea, do you know yet if your luteal phase is a normal length?  The tea can help to lengthen it if it’s short because it’s supposed to help naturally balance your hormones, but I’m not sure it would have the same effect if your hormone levels are already fine.  Heck, couldn’t hurt though!

SadieBee:  Yeah, it worked out a lot cheaper to fly in February instead of early January so thats why the honeymoon is a month after the wedding. It is such a tough decision and since I too am very baby crazy I am leaning towards the earlier TTC date. I’m so jealous that your TTC month is only a few days away!

Oh I didn’t realise that about the RRL tea. My LP is usally 13 days which I assume is considered normal. It might be worth trying it before TTC for all of the other benefits anyway.

Janelle123:  usually lurk here but wanted to say I was in the same position (period at my wedding) and I started hormonal BC after my previous period (I have an IUD). I then skipped the period week for the month by continuing with the hormonal pills. This was all sanctioned by my obgyn. So that’s another option! Personally I wouldnt want to be nauseous, tired, and sober on my wedding day  ; )
