SaltedCaramel:  It would be. I felt awful after misinterpreting, but DH was exceptionally calm and then even made a comment when I said that I probably would not end up pregnant that I got him “super excited”. Either way we will be happy. A baby would be amazing, but it would impact our plans (Greece next June and bff’s wedding next July) next summer. Definitely not the end of the world to miss. I’m just going with the flow and not thinking too much. I don’t want to create any symptoms by overthinking at this stage.

mrscorgi:  thanks im actually getting that monitor off a friend so will have to buy the refill strips. I’m going to start using it after my AF in September. Me and Fiance work different schedules and travel a lot and I’m waaaaay too impatient! I never thought I’d be tracking I always thought we’d just try naturally but I’m 32 this December so getting slightly Antsy! From the reviews I’ve read this is idiot proof so sounds perfect For me πŸ™‚

NeedPenPaperCoffee:  It’s so cute when the DHs start saying things about babies. Yesterday we were at my niece’s 6th birthday party and when a cupcake tower with candles on it came out, DH whispered to me “When we have kids, we’ll never do that. They get a full cake, no excuses.” Haha. The funny things men think are important!

  • Wedding: June 2014

Age/DH’s age: I’ll be 24 in a couple weeks, he’s 24

When will you TTC?: August 2015

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Nothing yet. I will go off BC in May when my prescription runs out and I will start pre-natals at that time.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No. I don’t plan to chart at all unless we have difficulty getting pregnant by just having fun with it.

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: I’m a nursing student and will graduate before a baby would arrive. DH is a safety manager for a company, but may be job searching soon as he isn’t very happy in his current position. We will both continue to work after baby comes, due to enjoying our comfortable lifestyle with 2 incomes!

MrsFairyBee:  Ahhhh that’s so weird to think about! What a happy Christmas present that would be!

But, TBH, I doubt it will happen that quickly; I’m traveling extensively for work for the next 8 weeks, and won’t be on the same coast as DH for all but 2 weeks. One of those two weeks is an estimated fertile window, but it feels best not to get my hopes up about it (cross country travel almost always messes with my cycle). It’s going to be VERY hard (we haven’t spent a day apart for over a year).

Roll call info:

 

Age/DH’s age: We’re both 27. I’m nearly 28 and he’s not far behind.

When will you TTC?:  In the Spring, although I’m feeling like we might be ready sooner

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  I’ve already gone off the pill. It makes me grumpy and I’m terribly busy at work so I was always forgetting to take it at the same time each day anyway which just screwed me up. I’m focusing more on eating healthy and exercising and am constantly reading articles on do’s and do not’s.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not yet. I’ve just started looking into it and probably will start to chart in the winter.

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: He is a court diversion manager and I’m an administrative assistant. I’ll go on maternity leave but when that’s up I’d like to go back to work at least part-time. He’ll continue to work full-time.

Yay new thread!!

Age/DH’s age: 25/24

When will you TTC?:  October 2014!!  Right after I turn 26!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  Taking prenatals, running, charting, eating healthy, drinking green smoothies, and I just got my Tdap and flu shots!!

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Yes I chart, but on paper.  

What do you do and your DH do for a living, and will you both keep working after having kids?: DH is an electrical engineer for a power company and I am a mathematics instructor at a univeristy.  His salary is awesome, so after we have a baby I will stay at home.  My salary is pretty pitiful and I have a really bad commute to work, so I’m not upset at all about quitting after baby.  If I get bored staying at home, I might look for an adjunct position where I can just teach one class on TR evenings or something, but for the most part I’m really looking forward to being a SAHM!

A colleague just shared that his wife is expecting their third child. I honestly don’t know how they do it on what it seems just one income and it’s not much. He said how they were waiting until he was done with school to have another one, and apparently they were taking all the precautions, yeah right! Hmmm I wonder how much he really knows about this woman cycle thing. I didn’t know if I should feel good or bad, good because I would hate to be in his situation or bad that there are such fertile couples out there arghh.
