Helloo!!! Can I join?! We recently had a scare and it got us talking about TTC and after lots (and lots) of talking we’ve decided that Oct/nov next year will be when we start TTC. I’m so excited now!! The idea of getting pregnant used to scare me so much, but now I feel so excited to make little people and watch them grow!

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I’m 23, he’s 23 (will both be 24 when TTC)

When will you TTC?:  Estimate Oct/Nov 2015.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Getting in shape, adopting a healthier diet.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No, I only track my periods on an iphone app.

When do you daydream most about babies: Seems to be all the time at the moment!

RunnerBride13:  I think we have a date!  January 2015.

I am actually really happy about this for once!  All the logistical stuff aside (there will always be logistical stuff, we agreed on that), Darling Husband really is just scared about the life shift that is becoming a parent.  We’re taking the rest of the year for him to relax and adjust to the idea.  If he’s still not over it, though, we’re going ahead anyway at the start of the new year, and he’s totally okay with that b/c I will have given him the full chance (the whole year) to get there, and he recognizes that I’ve been patient for this for a long time and that we should probably get on with this already!

Also its my 29th birthday today, and the snow storm is messing up all my plans for the holiday and my birthday celebration, but I don’t even care.  I’m just taking this moment to be happy about my family-building future for the first time in a long while!

… OHGAWD I hope this doesn’t change again!

So it took me almost a week to realise there was a new thread and then another 2 days to catch up lol but now I’m ready to roll call.

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I’m 25, he’s 29

When will you TTC?: February 2015

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Taking folic acid and I just ordered Pregnitude yesterday! (mainly in the hopes of an earlier O next month to avoid AF for the wedding. Everyones advice on here and in real life is to just take the pill for one cycle but for some reason I am so scared to…).

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Yes, I have been charting to avoid for 40 cycles now! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/janelle123

When do you daydream most about babies: ALL THE TIME!!

Usagi– Yay!! I’m so excited for you πŸ˜€ If he tries to change his mind again, I will kick him in the shins lol

 

Oh so more changes. I am hornay. Pretty much insatiable. I was sitting at work, and texting my husband and all of a sudden I was thinking about skipping happy hours JUST to go home and fix it. Also, boobs like amazing. If I am pregnant, pregnancy is awesome! (I will eat those words one day, I am sure)

Hi Ladies, I’ve been lurking on this thread for a while now, so I figured I should offically join!

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: I’m 26, Darling Husband is 27

When will you TTC?: Either this month, or next month will be my last one on the BCP. I’m finding it really hard to just pull the plug (or pill in this case!) and say, yes, we’re doing it. Since I’m having a hard time with that, we’re just going to NTNP for probably 6-8 months and see what happens. 

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Going to start taking prenetal vitamins shortly after one mroe conversation with Darling Husband to make sure we’re definitely on the same page.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: No, and I probably won’t unless I’m off my BCP for some while without getting pregnant.

When do you daydream most about babies: Usually when I’m around with me neice or nephew! Or if we’re out and about, and I think about how nice it’ll be when we can bring a LO to family and/or kid events.

 

Side question: Did anyone else have a really hard time deciding when to stop taking their BCP? Like, I know I want a baby, I’m just afraid I’ll come off it and then totally change my mind!

CanadianBride456:  Welcome. πŸ™‚ For me, coming off BC wasn’t a hard decision, because I was just REALLY trying to avoid getting pregnant before we were married, but now that we’re married, I know it wouldn’t be bad anymore if we got pregnant now. Of course, there are ways to prevent pregnancy while off the pill, which is what we’re doing for now. I’m actually just really happy to be having natural cycles now πŸ™‚

Age/FI’s age: I am 27, he is 28 (will be 29 when we TTC)

When will you TTC?:  September 2015 – hoping for a honeymoon babe! πŸ™‚

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I am going to the gym (everytime I plank I think of it as training for contractions ), I will start prenatals early Spring and Fiance will also start multi-vitamins. He already quit smoking (6 months now!!). I also reread all of the getting pregnant chapters of TCOYF recently!

Do you chart? Yes I do, with Kindara – right now for preventing. It’s almost been a year since I went off of the Pill, and my cycles seem to be steadying out to 34 days. I ovulate and have normal PL periods, so I’m hopeful πŸ™‚ <br />

When do you daydream most about babies:  All. The. Time. We have a 3 month old nephew, and whenever I cuddle with him I definitely daydream the most!

Daily question: Do you have a sex preference? I always wanted a boy first, but now I can honestly say I have zero preference. I will genuinely be happy with whatever we have. My Fiance used to be on the same boat, but he’s leaning on a boy now that he’s considered what it would be like to have a teenage girl haha

Hard waiting moment today! The talk at my parent’s house over Thanksgiving was ALL BABY! My mom kept going on and on about how she has a kid’s table in the breakfast nook ready to go and my sister kept talking about how big my boobs have gotten. To clarify, we are NOT pregnant..I’ve gained 8 pounds since the wedding. Then when we got home tonight, my husband and I were talking about babies and he started rubbing my belly and says “I wish we didn’t have to wait.”

And this my friends is why nursing school is currently ruining my life! (Kidding of course..kinda πŸ™‚

mrsdfarrar6714:  It was hard here too!  My dad offered me a beer and when I asked for something non-alcoholic, he perked up and said, “Oh…???”.  Nope, not pregnant, just on an annoying medication for a month that I can’t drink on!  The only consolation is thinking that next Thanksgiving I’ll hopefully have a pretty cute baby bump.

Darling Husband and I went to a Christmas lightup festival last night. Kids, babies, toddlers, everywhere. And nosey parents everywhere too, asking us if WE had any kids. Made me a weird mix of happy/sad. Maybe next Christmas we will have a LO.
