RunnerBride13:  nope! We both want 2… I think he’s counting on me getting pregnant with twins the first time around! Although to be fair, he did want to start about 6 months ago, so apparently I’ve already pushed back his timeline by a year. Haha.

Anyone had relatives at hoilday parties ask about when you haveing kids? Darling Husband and I sent out a card with our pets, a bunny and cat, this year. Cousin of my father said ” Well maybe next year it will be kids.” Not really asking but kind of.  I just smiled at her until she left Darling Husband and alone. How do you fellow waiting to TTC deal with these comments. This happened last weekend and I’m still a little taken back by it.

RunnerBride13:  We’ve been married about 2.5 years, but together for over 9 years. I think him turning 30 last January made him feel a little old and antsy. I pushed back the timeline because of my fall marathon (dr told me not to get pregnant while marathon training), so that’s why we ended up with this upcoming summer. And now I’m trying to maybe move it up, but it’s a bit of an art at this point, trying to figure out when is a safe time so I won’t be “showing” in either of the figure-hugging bridesmaid dresses I have to wear this summer! 

So sorry about the stress of no AF. And that’s really sweet that your Darling Husband is trying to make you feel better. Just keep doing what you’re doing (I know how hard gaining weight can be! You have my sympathy!). Try to enjoy this last holiday season with just you and your Darling Husband because as soon as the new year comes, you’ll have a plan and your doctor will take care of it! I have faith ๐Ÿ™‚

Mrs.LaFountain:  My aunt flat out asked if my mum had to convince me to have children.  She didn’t outrightly ask me.  My mum joked that there was a wedding to get through first!  So far no one has asked us.  Probably because everyone we know well knows we’re hoping to have kids.  

We have this cycle and January’s and then its go time.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m excited.  But now that it’s so close I think I’ll track but not be obsessive (ok, I’ll be obsessive, but I’ll keep it to myself.)  I’m not going to tell him where I am in the cycle.  He thinks the pressure will be too much.  I know I’m ovulating, so I might even take a cycle off charting (our wedding/honeymoon would be a lot more fun without the thermometer tagging along!)

Mrs.LaFountain:  Ugh, the questions and comments.  UGH!!!!  We started getting them about a month after the wedding.  We don’t so much get asked “when” anymore, more of a “why haven’t you yet?!” & we usually just stumble through an answer of “oh, not right now, not with X” (X having been: bar exam, new job, ANOTHER new job, and now house-hunting, which hasn’t officially started yet and might not happen at all.  A friend of Darling Husband is in a complex we wanted to live in when we moved here but it was full, but now apparently its opening up.  Darling Husband suggested we see if one of the bigger units is available, and move there when this lease is up instead of buying, to make THE NEXT NEW JOB + MOVE easier.  B/c now this town isn’t good enough, we have to move back near his folks again.  Considering this was said after running around re-buying ALL my wrapping things and a bunch of craft stuff at the last minute b/c it all got lost/damaged in the last 2 moves, I am ready to strangle him.)

ETA: sorry, that turned into a giant tangent rant.  Holiday stress is getting to me, can you tell @[email protected]

Just checking up on all my fellow waiting to TTC bees! I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! 

Fiance and I have been talking alot about TTC and babies. Originally we were going to wait until our one year wedding anniversary  (Sept 2016) but we are toying with the possibility of beginning TTC soon after we are married if we are settled and financiallu stable enough. I think he’s getting the baby rabies too… he has a 4 year old daughter (the best step daughter I could ever ask for!) But he’s like me and ready for some of our own… He’s been talking to me about me getting off the pill early to try to learn my cycles… especially since lately I’ve been having BC issues which is really abnormal for me. I have one more semester before I graduate college and I am toying with the idea of quitting BC when I graduate if we are still thinking about TTC after our September wedding…

Ok, another rant, feel free to ignore:

My baby cousin is pregnant.  My fresh out of college, can’t keep a boyfriend, works @ Walmart, refuses to talk to my uncle who spoils her, cousin, is going to have the first great-grandchild of the family.  And my husband’s been putting off TTC when we’re almost 30, married 2 years, in no debt, have great income, b/c he doesn’t want to loose videogame time.

………. UGH.

First off, Happy New Year to everyone! Many of us will graduate from this thread THIS year! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, before the wedding I was always paranoid about getting pregnant and not being able to fit in my dress, despite being on birth control and using the good ole pull out method. This fear lasted until a couple months before the wedding, when I knew I would be able to hide a pregnancy for the most part on my wedding day.

Now, as our TTC date draws closer, I get anxious every month waiting to see if aunt flo shows up or not. Despite wanting a baby more than anything in the world right now, I’m always so relieved when she shows because that means I’m one cycle closer to having a due date that falls AFTER college graduation. 

Any one else feel this way every month? lol

RunnerBride13:  You can actually move me to THIS month. ๐Ÿ™‚ The way my cycle is going I will ovulate in late January or super early February. We are jumping on it either way! Once AF arrives, I’m TTC!!!
