KatiePi:  I’m sorry.    I would be disappointed too, even though there are good reasons for the plan you guys have in place.  However, just looked at your chart (added you) and it looks really promising!!  Maybe BFP tomorrow?  Are you using FMU?

SaltedCaramel:  Yeah, both days were FMU. I think my LP was just getting longer finally. I have red spotting that’s turning into very light flow. I think I’ll see a temp drop tomorrow and full on AF. I will be really surprised if my temp stays up. Thanks though!

ETA: Just after I typed this-red flow (light). i think today is CD1 and it just started later.

hellosunshine:  Lol, you sound just like me…. I am also filling my spare time with all of that research!  I also hear you on others having a hard time… My SIL and Brother-In-Law are doing IUI and have to decide whether to go on to IVF.  I also worry that they will be upset if we get PG right away.  On the other hand, I feel like since I know people who are having/had a hard time, I feel like we should be starting now so that we can get those months of trying out of the way before actually expecting a BFP!  TTC is hard for us planners….

KatiePi:  Ahhh, gotcha.  I read through the rest of your comments and it sounds like there are some positives to sticking with the original timeline… jealous of your travel plans!

RunnerBride13:  ooh can I please join the list?

 

Age/DH’s age: I’m 25, he’s 28

When will you TTC?: hopefully June 2015. yikes that sounds so far away!  Wanted to in January when we are done building our house and just after I’m a bridesmaid… But that would put me at maternity leave/due in my tax season and that’s not terribly ideal so trying to hold off til June/July. 

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Trying to be healthier, building a house and trying to decide when to get off the pill. 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not yet!

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: he’s a mortgage banker and I’m a CPA. I’d go part time eventually but may try full time while there’s only one LO.

I’m a new entrance onto the list   I posted on the last one but… there were 444 posts!  Whoa!

Age/DH’s age: We’re both 29

When will you TTC?:  I have one more 3-month pack of BC pills that I will take which puts me going off the pill Dec 14th.  We won’t start trying until a few months later, Feb or March possibly?  We’re having a tough time nailing down an actual time.  DH says starting a year from now is too far away, but starting this December is too soon.  When we get to really discussing it, we get all “whoa! we’re really discussing this!!” 

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  I’m taking prenatal vitamins. I just found out I have an iodine deficiency that caused hypothyroid symptoms so I’m working on getting healthier with regards to that. Lastly, I’m starting a regular workout routine, which has been lacking the past few months.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Nope, and won’t start charting unless it takes more than a few months to get pregnant.

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: We’re both mental health therapists so we’ll both keep working.  My job is residential, and only 4 days a week with 1 day being on the weekend. Also, my job is very welcoming with mothers (allowed to nurse openly, have kids come to meals, etc.) We’ll only need 3 days of childcare and it will most likely be my parents who will work on moving to us once they find out I’m pregnant.  I’m an only child so wherever I lay roots they have said they will follow.

MrsFairyBee:  I’m not planning to chart, at least not right away. I was always like clockwork when I wasn’t on the pill, and I could usually tell when I was ovulating just from physical symptoms. I’m hoping that returns. I took my last BCP this morning!!

Mrs. Coyote:  I agree, an oops would be so much easier than trying to plan it out! But it’s harder to have an oops when you’re a) on BCP, as I have been and b) pretty in tune with your cycles. But I’ll still cross my fingers!!

So I was browsing on Amazon the other night and checked out the price of some OPKs and they were so cheap that I asked my DH if I could get them since we were supposed to start TTC in October. He said go ahead and get them but I could tell something wasn’t right with him. He made some off-handed comment about him not being ready but me obviously not caring and that set off a huge discussion complete with tears (from me, lol) about how we are clearly on different timelines regarding ttc. I’ve always posted thoughts here that I felt like DH was going to push back ttc when the time came and I was right. However, he understands that we are getting older (we are both turning 30 in December) and that we should start trying soon, even if he really isn’t “ready”. So we agreed on November, which is only pushing it one month back, which I am fine with, but just scared that come November, he will try to push it back again 🙁

So for now, could I be moved to November 2014 and we’ll see how it goes. 

It was all pretty upsetting because the last thing I want is to push DH into something that he is not ready for, but I am in full out baby fever mode and honestly don’t want to even wait until November! I’m just hoping that DH’s anxiety is normal and once we begin ttc and hopefully get a bfp soon after that he will be on board with everything. 

Any advice from ladies with similar DHs?

LuckyinLove17:  I know my DH is going to be the same way. I bet it’s the whole actually trying part that scares him. It might worry him to think that it’d feel so… meticulous instead of fun. Maybe he’d feel more comfortable with you leaving out talking about all the technical stuff that we ladies do like charting and OPKs and he’d rather feel like you two are going with the flow?

LiliKitty:  I’ve been thinking that too. I might just let things settle, not bring it up at all until we start getting much closer to November. Then I’ll just tell him the optimal time to BD without getting technical and such. You might be right about that 🙂

RunnerBride13:  Can I join this thread?

Age/DH’s age: I’m 28, he’s 33.

When will you TTC?:  I stopped the pill last week and am finishing up my visit from AF. But we are going to use other precautions until mid-end October or beginning of November. I want to let the BC out of my system and finish losing some unwanted weight before pregnancy.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Taking prenatals and losing weight.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not really. I have an abnormal period with very short cycles. I am just going to write down when AF starts/ends for now to see how close together they are. Previously, before BC, they were 10-12 days apart and it was a nightmare. I’m scared!

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: I’m a writer and he’s a teacher. I might stay at home until the kid(s) are preschool age.
