I’m another one planning around a school schedule!  We’re planning to start end of May, so that if we’re lucky first try, we’ll have a mid-February baby and hopefully I’ll be able to take off through the remainder of the school year.

I have been so mopey the past couple of days.  It doesn’t help that my baby rabies is out of control and that I should get AF tomorrow or Tuesday.  My SIL and one of my close friends are due in two weeks, which is when I would have been due if I had gotten KU on my honeymoon (we weren’t TTC then, but more not preventing that week – and I ovulated then).  May feels so far away!  :-/

This is my first post like this so correct if I am wrong πŸ™‚

Roll call info:

Age/DH’s age: 25/28

When will you TTC?: September/October 2015

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Nothing!! any advice on what to start doing would be great! (I’m still on the Pill, so of course i have to go off that – planning for this to be september after the honeymoon, so if all went well – which I realise may not, first Ovulation would be somewhere around the end of Sep early Oct.) 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Is there a point in charting prior to going off the pill?

What is on your pre-baby bucket list?: The wedding!!! and the Honeymoon πŸ™‚ Also, A none wedding related girls weekend with my Mum & Sister. This is already booked in for June, we are seeing the Dirty Dancing Stage show. EXCITED!!

misschickpea:  We are having the same thing actually, talking more about babies more lately, especially in the last week.. And talking to our friends who have newborns and what their experiences have been like.. So far it hasn’t scared DH away yet πŸ˜‰   But I just want to get started and start trying like now.  But unfortunately I can’t yet because of my job and wanting to get off probation first.  

I think I am going to get off BCP in May/June because my doctor suggested giving a month to regulate my cycle before TTC (which will be July).  So we’ll see if it gets back to normal though.  So I am getting more anxious and impatient, and it doesn’t really help that I am turning 31 in 2 weeks so my biological clock is ticking…

Do you chart? I have a period tracker thing that also shows my expected ovulation dates, but nothing extreme.

jb2015:  No sense in charting if you’re still on the pill.  The only advice I can think to give you is to start taking prenatals a few months before you start TTC.  You want folic acid to build up in your system before you start.

Silverblade:  My DH and I have been talking more and more about it too.  We both can’t wait!  My friend delivered her baby boy yesterday and I can’t wait to meet him!  I’m still not an aunt yet though, maybe another day or two.

Y’all I am counting down the days! We are going to start after my next AF, which will start in about a week and a half! 

I do have one thing on my pre-baby bucket list and I don’t know if I’ll be able to check it off before we start TTC (and I know it’s REALLY silly), but I am a roller coaster fanatic and a new one just opened at the amusement park near us. I am dying to ride it before I get pregnant hahahaha!

arielmerms; you should start prenatals at least a couple months before you TTC. As a plus, your hair and nails will look great for your wedding!

Mrs. Coyote:  Rollercoasters are fun! Maybe if the weather is nice next weekend you can go try it!

AFM, DH and I didn’t prevent this past cycle (accidentally- I’m irregular) and I’m 11DPO. I’m pretty sure it’s not happening. Even though it was unexpected, I’m disappointed. I’m simultaneously looking forward to really trying again, and also worrying about it. I’m going to guess that this next cycle we’ll do the NTNP thing (which knowing me will be full on TTC because I’m an all or nothing person!). I did a bunch of testing with my OBGYN in February, so if it doesn’t happen for us this cycle or next, I’ll call her up and get the prescription for Clomid that she suggested.

Chronic lurker here! Hi All–

Age/ (almost!) DH’s age: 30/31

When will you TTC?: June 2015 (We get married in May!)

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I take a prenatal, he’s taking a Men’s multi. I am simultaneously preparing for our wedding next month and TTC in June by working on daily habits to improve my diet and working out most days of the week with cardio and strength training. My goal is to have really set habits with diet/exercise and secondary to that I’d like to be as much in the healthy BMI range as I can when we TTC (I’m about 10lb above that now)

Do you chart? Technically, no. I do keep track of my cycles and symptoms/CM sometimes. We’ll give NTNT a go before getting into all that (Honestly, I see that happening for like 2 months and then my crazy takes over. Of course he thinks it will happen the second we decide we’re going for it… Men.)

What is on your pre-baby bucket list?: We bought our first house last year, so check. Get married, almost check! Enjoy my alcohol when I indulge. Try to relax and enjoy our baby-free time as much as we can (ha! that’s quite a feat while we’re getting ready for our wedding next month). I feel like I’ve been preparing for pregnancy and babies for like the past ten years, the only thing I want to do more research on is cloth diapers.

I feel like I’ve been waiting FOR-EV-ER to be trying. Honestly, I’m SO freaking excited.​

Guys I am past baby fever and I have full on foaming at the mouth baby rabies! Our wedding is in October and it cannot come soon enough. I am looking at my fb newsfeed of seemingly EVERYONE I know doing egg hunts this morning and photos of babes with bunny ears. Just came on here to whine:) haha
