So, I’m on the list for January 2015, but I think we’re going to move it for 6-8 months later. Darling Husband may be travelling for work alot (like, really a crazy amount – think about a week home a month), and if this happens, I’d rather wait until he was home more to support me through my pregnancy. So you can move me to the undecided category. I’m ok with this decision, I feel like I still have alot of life to live before baby (not that it ends with baby – just different!)

LiliKitty:  Lol oops! Didn’t even notice. That’s nice to hear! I just had my meeting with the lender and jeez, talk about a lot of information at one time. We’ll talk about it when Darling Husband gets home from work, but it may not be the best time to buy for us. I’m okay with that as renting currently saves us a lot of money each month. We will see!

RunnerBride13:  Whoa!!!!  Congratulations!  That’s super exciting.  Funny to go from hoping AF shows to hoping she stays away for 9 months.    Just curious, are you planning to test periodically or…?  

Also, thanks for being such a great keeper of the list for many threads running now!

RunnerBride13:  Congrats on graduating early! Darling Husband and I had a similar talk this weekend but decided to hold off for at least another month and then revisit the topic. This is my first month off the pill and  charting and I aboslutely hate it. I really want to NTNP but hopefully we will move into that category in the next month or so.

Silverblade:  No, I promised Darling Husband I wouldn’t buy anything. But I want to check out that book! I want to give Darling Husband a book when we get our BFP. But I want it to be informative and humorous at the same time. I don’t want something that just goes too far into the nitty gritty details. Have you read or looked through the book?

Yay, new thread! 


Roll call!!!

Age/DH’s age: I’m 28, he’s 28 (I’ll be 29 when we start TTC!)

When will you TTC?: Still projected for April 2015!

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: eating better and losing some weight, just ordered some prenatals and I already take folic acid daily! We’ve been saving money like crazy people but its for a house we plan on buying in the summer! So excited!

Do you chart? Link to the chart: no charting yet, just tracking my O. I’ll be getting some Wondfo’s in January!<br />

When do you daydream most about babies: its been picking up as of late! My Darling Husband often jokes that we ALWAYS get seated next to people with babies everywhere we go! It’s a seriously hilarious coincidence lol. I do have a secret Pinterest board already for nursery planning. My SIL just had a baby in July so baby fever has been in full gear it seems!

Can I join if we are waiting to TTC baby #2? I need some support to keep the baby fever stifled until earliest September 2015 when our September 2013 baby will be 2. It wasn’t hard but now that he’s sleeping all night and is Mr. Independent now, I can feel the baby fever starting to rise…oh brother. Lol.

cowgirlace:  Absolutely!  roll call 🙂

RunnerBride13:  We’re going to a Hanukkah party at DH’s parents house and then we’re hosting Christmas for my family (but we’re doing it the 26th because that’s when my little brother flies in).  We’ll probably go to Vermont and go skiing for New Years.

AFM, we are now 100% set on the end of May, 2015 (it’s what I’m listed as on the list, so no need to update me).  DH and I had a really good talk and he is 100% on board with starting TTC then.  I can’t wait!!!

RunnerBride13:  I’d love to take over the list, but I know I’d be a terrible list master with all the things on my plate in the next few months (grad school/full time job/part time job/siblings’ weddings). I hope someone here in our group is able to do it! You did a fantastic job! 

QOTD: Darling Husband and I will be staying around here for the holidays because all our family lives within about 40 minutes from us. We’re both teachers so we have the full 2 weeks off starting this Friday. We’ll do XMas Eve with his family, Christmas Day with my mom’a side, and December 28th with my dad’s side. It’s a nice time for us! 

cowgirlace:  Of course you are welcome! We’re all here just because we’re waiting for our timeline, so you definitely fit in!

RunnerBride13:  Question of the Day: What are your plans for the holidays?

Nothing out of the ordinary.  Visiting my mom next weekend for a dinner with her, stepdad & grandparents, Christmas Eve with my dad and other grandparents, then massive in-law party on Christmas Day.  Darling Husband is taking the 24th & 26th off work, so we can drive down to his parents (they live pretty close to my dad & have a guestroom) the 23rd after work, then stay through the weekend.  I’m not a big fan of spending a WEEK with the in-laws, but Darling Husband likes feeling like a kid again over the holiday.  Whatever, I’ll bring lots of knitting and video games.

I’d love to be added to the list!

Age/DH’s age: I’m 34 and Darling Husband is 38

When will you TTC?: I’m finishing up my BCP pack this month and I have my routine GYN checkup early next month, so we’ll hopefully be TTC January 2015.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Taking prenatal vitamins, squeezing in some more exercise, eating healthier, and being more budget conscious to save money.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Not yet since I’m still on BCP.

When do you daydream most about babies: Anytime I see them!  Our next door neighbors just had a baby a few months ago, and we live in a neighborhood with a lot of young families so I see lots of babies and toddlers whenever I take our dog out for a walk.  It also happens whenever I’m at the computer, which is often.  I see FB updates from expecting friends, and I’m a researcher by nature so I’ve been reading a lot on TTC and subsequently getting a bit freaked out because of my age.
