RunnerBride13:  You can remove me from the list. After cancellation of Mr. LK’s surgery due to very low odds of us ever getting pregnant the old fashioned way, we are officially on the IVF path. It looks like we may be able to do our first embryo transfer in February. I can’t call us TTC now, since we can BD till the cows come home and never make a baby that way, but we aren’t waiting to TTC either. There is some weird limbo land that we inhabit, and I’m learning to be okay with that.

RunnerBride13:  re: Vitex, I took it 2x day for the first bottle of 100 capsules and then reduced to 1x day in the morning with my vitamins. I don’t have the bottle in front if me but I have Nature’s Way…I think it’s 400mg per capsule. FX it works for you!

CaroBee:  I bet you’re getting excited! That is a long time coming!  Our baby fever has sky-rocketed since my neice was born 6 weeks ago, so we decided not to wait as long as we were originally planning!

Sister in Law just sent us a announcement thats shes due in May. Its killing me. DH says I’m being selfish, but waiting is SO HARD! We are gonna start TTCing when my BC runs out in June maybe earlier depending. Even with that move up the waiting aweful. And now I’m gonna be expected to be happy and knit for this new baby who will be born right around the same time we will start trying. Sorry little bit of rant, I just feel like everything is baby related in my life right now, also facebook pictures dosn’t help. And I knew you leadies would get where I’m coming from.

Mrs.LaFountain:

I do. I am throwing a baby shower for a friend who is having an “oops” baby. Stings a little, but I’m trying to put her first. Also, hoping that her new baby will propel my husband a bit more ๐Ÿ˜‰

Can I be added to the list? We will start trying when I’m done with school I’m wishing now I didn’t go back so we wouldn’t have to wait lol. But I’ll be done spring of 2017 so technically we could start trying September 2016 because then I would deliver the summer of 2017. I hate to wait but I know it would be best for our family. It would be perfect to have been married for just over a year when we start to try. Right now it’s about 21 months until then which really isn’t that long. 

Roll call info: Age/DH’s age: I’m 26 and he is 27 (getting married June 2015)

When will you TTC?: Late summer 2016!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Im trying to lose a few pounds for the wedding but otherwise maintain.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: NoT yet!

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: we have names picked out Benjamin Michael for a boy and Alexis Marie for a girl ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I have a 4 year old from a previous relation ship and I work for an OBGYN so babies are always on my mind!

RunnerBride13:  I’m a nurse practitioner. It will be tricky, but somehow everyone always figures it out! Thank you for adding me to the list. ๐Ÿ™‚

LuckyinLove17:  Thank you! And congrats on your good news!

koi424:  I am also all about the pregnancy announcement ideas. To my husband, siblings, parents… I have every last detail already planned out…

Mrs.LaFountain:  That’s tough. I would feel the same way. But then it is kind of fun to think that it is all ahead of you, all these new experiences. That might be because I just finished watching Gilmore Girls when Rory leaves for her new job after graduating, so I started crying to my husband how lucky we are that we have so much ahead of us. So looking at it in that perspective at least helps for me! The decision to start trying, telling your husband/SO, the pregnancy, meeting your child for the first time, etc. etc. So many fun new moments ahead that I’m grateful aren’t over yet. Good luck waiting!

So I found out that my brother and his wife have started trying for a baby and while 90% of me is happy for them the other 10% of me is very jealous that I still have 3 months to wait (even though I know that isn’t that long!). It doesn’t help that Fiance keeps saying “let’s just make a baby now”… Also, 100% of me is very worried that if I get pregnant soon after my SIL she will react the way she did when I got engaged 5 months after her – basically like I was stealing her thunder and that we only got engaged because they did. I hope she will be happy for us and not think that we decided to have a baby just because they did ๐Ÿ™

RunnerBride13:  This thread is so long I am not even sure if I responded before! But, I am excited to say we have moved up our TTC timeline by a year! It’s still just over 2 years away, but it is sooner than what we initially planned. 

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I’m 26, DH is 28 (will be 28 and 30 when we start TTC)

When will you TTC?:  Now, we are aiming for January/February 2017

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Just being healthy in general. Training for a half marathon at the moment.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No

If you had boy and girl twins today, what would you name them?: Probably Leeland and Leilani. Yeah, they are similar, but I love the way they sound together.

Janelle123:  My brother and his wife just got married and I think they have also started trying already! I know the feeling. Obviously I’m happy for them but the wait is starting to kill me! I know we need to stick with the plan we have, mostly because DH has gotten so comfortable with our start date (he’s a big planner) but ughhhhh.
