Guess it’s time to join this thread! Darling Husband and I had a come-to-jesus talk this weekend about babies and all that fun stuff. I’m going to be a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding this summer, but I live 700 miles away so that means a lot of travel in the next few months and I don’t really want to be pregnant until all of her wedding shenanigans are over. Plus I want to party with a drink in my hand one last time. Then it’s babymaking time! 😀 Kinda scary to think that a year from today I could be pregnant, but so exciting too!!

Age: Just turned 28 today!

When will you TTC?: July/August 2014

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Fixing up my diet, exercising and taking pre-natals. Oh and I have some health problems that immediately sets me up for a high-risk pregnancy so I’m getting all the appropriate tests and dr appts out of the way.

Do you chart? Link to the chart: Nope. I don’t want to stress myself out with charts, etc. so we’re going to just wing it for the first six months and just have fun with it!

All time favourite movie?: Ohhhh there are just too many awesome movies to just pick one! I’m going to cheat and say the Harry Potter series. 😀 Oh, except for #6. That was a terrible, terrible movie that never should have been made.

Well we were going to TTC in January but recently we decided to push it off a few more months. I think its just too much for us…. its really stressing me out so i need a longer break… and my husband just wants a kid before he’s 30 so a few extra months is no big deal to him. I am still on the pill, i don’t know if this is my last month or next month is… I stopped taking prenatals too. I don’t think i’m going to temp or chart when i do go off tho – I think i just want to NTNP for a few months atleast and hope for an oops to avoid all the stress of planning sex and everything else that goes along with TTC. We haven’t talked about it because right now i like that its an unknown because then it doesn’t freak me out – no specific timeline. I’ll start taking prenatals when i go off the pill and just see what happens. I think my new soonest baby making start date will be a Valentines Day baby.

I know you girls will understand so I figured I’d share my update.  Sad day yesterday for me, as I saw my doctor and since my autoimmune disorder has been acting up the past 2 months, she wants us to wait until it’s resolved before we start trying.  I am super bummed but trying to stay positive, since I have 2 months before we were going to start anyway, I hope I can get better by then.  It’s the most upsetting because we think and she agrees that stopping my BC and the stress from the wedding likely caused it.   I have felt 100 % FINE for over 2 years and was finally super happy in life!  I know things can be a lot worse but it does suck.  I can’t go back on BC!  Obviously.  So it’s a matter of my body and hopefully new meds.  The icing on the cake was she strongly recommended, when we are pregnant, to opt for a c-section.  I am a huge supporter of natural birth so that was a huge blow.  Alright enough of my somberness!  Let me know if anyone has gone through something similar.  Thanks.

Greetings all! So updates for me….

 

  • No word yet on the job I applied for. If I don’t hear anything by the end of this week, I am going to assume I am just not getting an interview wich will suck but oh well.
  • We have pretty much resolved the fence issue with the house we are buying – and may close later this week or next week! I am hoping this week so we can move this weekend because we are going to be away next weekend visitng DH’s family out of state.
  • I am second guessing myself a bit on my baby timeline. Should I wait longer so I am not massive at the two weddings I am in? How am I going to handle bridesmaid dresses if I am really big? Bah…

@candy11:  One in Oct one Nov – I was thinking March/April to TTC or at least NTNP, but I’m wondering if I am better off pushing it off for a few more months…

If you think you can wait a little bit longer to TTC, then I will say wait. If I was you, I wouldn’t worry too much as I think it is unlikely to get BFP the first cycle or even second. Some women are lucky though, and get if the first time around. If you don’t mind being a bit bigger and travelling, I think in your first or second trimester it’s still safe.

I used to be on this thread a long time ago, but now that it’s getting closer I want to play! 

Age: 27

When will you TTC?: January ’14! Was hoping for next month, but it doesn’t look like Darling Husband will be home in time to catch the FW.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: Exercising a crap ton so that I can lose some weight continue activities while pregnant, prenatal vitamins, charting, 

Do you chart? Link to the chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/mrslemondrop

All time favourite movie?: Oh man, that’s really hard. Kind of a silly pick, but maybe Sleeping Beauty?

 

So Darling Husband and I were talking today and babies came up – namely that he won’t be home in time to TTC next month. And he goes “Do you know what 2014 is?”

Me: “What?”

Mr. Lemondrop: “It’s the year we have a baby. Well, the year we grow one at least.”

 

I think my heart grew two sizes and I almost died. lol, And I had to tell someone so I’m telling you guys because I don’t really bring up the baby thing wth real life friends.
