I know, I had never heard of it either.. but psyched to have what sounds like awesome maternity coverage.
I totally agree– since the wedding’s been over I’ve felt like, okay, when is it time to make babies??
I’ve talked with a few of our close friends about our timeline, and DH is okay with it. Several couples that we are close to are in the same place of trying to figure out when to TTC (and the first one is PG, due in Jan). So it comes up kind of regularly. I am not planning to share tons of details with other people, though- there will be friends that I will say “soon” to. And I would rather not say anything more than “soon” to our families as they are going to lose their minds with excitement… so I don’t want the moms asking if we are pregnant every time we see them.

When will you TTC?: Hopefully Oct 2014- I will be 27 then and the baby would be born when I’m 28.
What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Taking prenatals, saving, paying down student loans. I am hoping to start exercising more regularly
Do you chart? Link to the chart: nope
All time favourite movie?: Love Actually

We’re keeping TTC plans pretty quiet. My BFF knows that we’re hoping to try soon, but I pretty much tell her everything. I don’t think DH has told anyone specifics, but we have close friends who know we’re thinking about kids in the near future – especially with conversations about moving and looking for apartments/houses, DH is pretty open about talking about needing a nursery, or taking good hospitals nearby into consideration. No specifics like “We’re going to start trying in January” though.
As for our families, they know kids are in our plans for the near future, but we won’t be telling anyone specifics of when we’re trying. Like others have said, our moms will be EXSTATIC, and I don’t want them on the edge of their seats inspecting me for signs of pregnancy every time we see them (at least any more than they probably will anyways!). We’re probably also going to wait to tell anyone for a little while once we’re pregnant, too. Especially because we don’t live near our families and would rather tell them in person.

We are planning a trip to Italy in September 2014. I am excited about going because I know we will have a great time, but my baby fever is bad enough that I wouldn’t be too upset if we had an “Oops!” pregnancy and had to cancel the trip.

haha yes exactly! I feel like my mind is going to go even more baby crazy now that I have nothing else to plan haha!
all we have told people so far is that we are not trying right away. I have told my parents and a few friends that it would be about 1 year before we start. That way, if we get pregnant right away next summer it’ll be a surprise and if it takes a few months to get pregnant we won’t have people constantly asking us if we are pregnant yet.

Only one person knows that we will be TTC soon, and it’s only because she’s a close friend and she has confided in me about trying for their third child – she hasn’t told anyone else about those plans and then we have each other to be able to lean on! As far as everyone else thinks (including both of our familes), we are putting off TTC until after we take a trip abroad next summer. I just don’t want everyone analyzing my every move and questioning me about being pregnant – I want to be able to tell people when we’re ready and surprise them!
Would you still cancel the trip even if you were going to be in your second trimester and you were feeling great? Just wondering because with our TTC timeline, I’m hoping to be 4-6 mo pregnant when we are heading to Europe early next summer.. I never realized how strong baby fever could be!! I’ve got it bad too.. 🙂

DH would probably want to cancel the trip to save money. I would also really want to be able to drink wine on our trip, but I’m not sure if I would cancel. I would have to see how I felt.

Good question! Even though we have a general idea of when we’ll start trying, we are not telling anyone. It is already bad with mom bringing up the baby conversation almost everytime I talk to her. She starts asking like, when are you guys going to start trying, December? January? February? and so on. I tell her very likely next year but not sure when. His parents don’t give us a lot of pressure though, but they really want us to move closer. They know babies are also in our near future, but how soon we are not telling specifics either. I also want to wait a few months before actually telling them we are pregnant.
2014 come now please!!!

Hello again all!
When will you TTC?: March/April – sometime in the spring at any rate I think
What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Not a thing! Really, still on the pill – on a new diet with DH but notthing to do with TTC. Just keeping to my normal life for now.
Do you chart? Link to the chart: Nope, and don’t really plan to other than track my cycle so I would know if I was late.
All time favourite movie?: Way too many. I guess my favorite TODAY at least would be French Kiss
Hope everyone is doing well! I applied for a new job this week – thats about all the updates I have haha. Still waiting on info so we can close on our house. Hope it’s before we have to go to Ohio for thanksgiving!

My BFF knows our timeline. I may tell my mom closer to time to TTC. But that’s about it. My SIL is “trying” and annouces it on Facebook and it annoys me to no end so so I’ve vowed to do the complete opposite of her.
And I say “trying” because she is dumb, over exaggerates everything, and I’m over critical of everything she does. Ha!
I’m new to these threads but has anyone thought of ways they want to tell their loved ones they are pregnant? We live thousands of miles away from all of our family so I’ve googled and Pinterested some long distance ideas.

Haha! I know how you feel about an “Oops” baby!! We don’t have anything booked at the moment. We decided over the weekend to wait a little bit because our old house – which we were renting and getting only half the rent for a year – is for sale. We have since evicted the renter. So now, we’re stuck with 2 houses to pay for. All the money we have saved for the trip is sitting there in case we need to dip into it until we sell.
I get these moments where I would much rather put the money saved into house renovations but my DH keeps reminding me it’s our honeymoon and it’ll be so much harder to get away when we have kids.
Fingers crossed for you and the new job and the house!! 🙂

I would love to hear some of your ideas! I have ideas for those that live closer and I can tell in person, but one of my siblings lives way too far away for an in-person announcement, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to announce to her!
Post # 45
Wow, no biggie is right! Your list makes me want to eat a giant cookie
Thanks for the feedback on sharing plans to TTC! Glad to know I am not the only one who wrestles with this issue.

My DH was on the phone earlier organizing a shipping container to ship all our stuff over and I had to take a break….. I am currently eating fun size candy bars from Halloween leftovers and watching Parenthood. I’ll let him organize it.
