    For Fun: If you could have ANY food in the world right now, what would it be?

    Yay for part 9! Thank you for starting it @FreckledFox: 

    Age: DH and I are both 28

    When will you TTC?: June 2014 (well, hopefully!)

    What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Stopped BC last November, started prenatals at the end of December, went to a preconception appointment with my doctor at the end of January, using FF app to track AF and reading an obsessive amount about pregnancy and babies.

    Do you chart? Link to the chart: Only tracking AF for now and still undecided as to whether or not I will start charting in the next few months.

    For the Poll: How are you working towards getting past the thing that’s holding you back? The reason why we are waiting until June was not in the poll. We are waiting becasue we are moving several hours away from our current location in April and then I will need to find a job when we get to our new place. So there isn’t much I can do about the situation right now other than plan the move and applying to as many jobs as I can once we move.

    For Fun: If you could have ANY food in the world right now, what would it be. A Dulce de Leche cupcake from this bakery near my house, best dessert ever!

    Also, I was thinking if maybe we should start over with a brand new list? The current one is really big and from looking at it now it seems like at least half of the people on it haven’t been on this thread in a very long time.

    What do you all think?

    When will you TTC?: Later this year, unless it happens by accident sooner. I will say September 2014 because that is our first anniversary. 

    What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Exercising, taking prenatals, and charting. This is my first month off HBC.

    Do you chart? Link to the chart: Currently charting on paper.

    For the Poll: How are you working towards getting past the thing that’s holding you back? We just bought a home so my husband says he wants to wait until we are used to our new budget before adding anything new. I am personally trying to get myself mentally and emotionally ready. Right now I want to be pregnant but the thought of that leading to an actual baby freaks me out! Haha

    For Fun: If you could have ANY food in the world right now, what would it be? I just ate lunch so ice cream!

    @emsy3110:  I agree about starting a new list. I’m TTC in April, but I think that there is only one other active poster in the April group with me. Lol.

    Eek. I’m totally guilty of not posting in a while.  I’m sorry ladies.  I am in the home stretch of finishing my master’s degree and have been completely stressed and overwhelmed.    But we are definitely not TTCing next month so I can be taken off of the March list.  

     

    Age:  I’m 24, soon to be 25.  DH is 26, almost 27.

    When will you TTC?:  DH is ready. I’m ready. But it will be awhile.  DH is military and this is a deployment year for him.  I just don’t want to be with a newborn by myself. I don’t want to face the possibility of being in labor by myself.  So I don’t know where I belong on the list.  

    What are you doing to get ready to TTC?:  I was eating healthy and working out, but then I started working on my oral defense for my master’s and I eat ALL THE THINGS.  . . Literally, ALL THE THINGS.  

    Do you chart? Link to the chart:  Nope.

    For the Poll: How are you working towards getting past the thing that’s holding you back?  I really can’t work past the military lifestyle. I mean I guess I could convince myself that tons of military wives do labor and newborns by themselves and they are fine, but I don’t wanna.  I want help in the form of my baby’s daddy.

    For Fun: If you could have ANY food in the world right now, what would it be?  I could totally go for a FRO (fried rice omelette) or a loco moco. Yummy!

    @HawaiiBamaBride:  I agree with you dont wanting to do it alone! I have a friend who got pregnant before her DH deployed and she was lonely the whole time, he was able to come back to see the baby be born and then left 2 weeks later….

     

    they are now going through a divorce…so waiting is a good thing!

     

    And congrats on the masters!!

    Just dropping in to say I am still on the waiting to ttc list. DH and I are waiting to go on our honeymoon in March before we start trying. I think I can actually be moved to March instead of March/April. ๐Ÿ™‚
