Happy New Year, bees! Wellll it’s 2017 and my DH and I will very soon be officially TTC, so exciting
I am having the last stage of some dental work done on 10th Jan so we will start straight after that. Although I don’t know exactly when I will ovulate – I’m currently on CD 32 and no sign of ovulation yet . My cycles have been crazy since stopping the pill last May! So if I ovulate before the 10th, we will have to wait another cycle before we actually have an opportunity to get pregnant. But otherwise, I may be joining the January POAS boards if I ovulate soon after the 10th!
Anyone else starting TTC this month?
An update to my TTC journey, I haven’t got my period after 30 days of stop taking the pill, and only Negatives OPK so far, so, we continue in the TTC limbo
Baby dust to everybody!
Happy New Year! Just wanted to wish everyone luck 🙂
I’m getting terrified and excited to start… after my next period (hopefully starting in a few days), it will finally have been 3 months since my fibroid surgery and therefore should be ‘healed’ enough to go for it!
Sort of started testing with OPKs, but was travelling over the holidays so I think/hope I missed the surge. Peeing on sticks feels like a science experiment, though, which is kind of fun (for now, at least).
It’s such a strange feeling to be simultaneously anxious that TTC won’t work for us and that it will work!
When will you start TTC? June
How old are you and your partner? I’m 26, he’s 36.
How are you preparing for TTC? I’ve started taking my prenatals, along with omeaga 3 DHA and Maca root (helps fertility). I’m restarting my 12 week challenge tomorrow to get my health and fitness sorted. Hubby and I have also decided that I will go off the pill now. In the mean time before we are ttc I will track my cycles to work out my fertile days, use a diaphragm and the “pull out method”. We are also spending the next 5 months paying off debt to get our finances in order.
What are you most excited about? Having a little brother or sister for my little man (he’a currently 18 months). Being pregnancy and every pregnancy milestone! This will be my last pregnancy so I want to enjoy it and savor it ☺️
Any other ramblings you may have? I’m really excited to be off the pill as of yesterday! I really hate the idea that I’m putting all these artificial hormones into my body. It also really effects my sex drive so I’ll be happy to get that back!
I’m so excited I can finally be part of threads like this!!
I’m 30 he’s 29.
I’ve been taking prenatals for a few months now. Just had some basic bloodwork done a few weeks ago to make sure all is well! Lastly, been eating a lot healthier and going to the gym more often!
Being a mommy! Having a little human equal parts me and my DH! Navigating parenting with DH and moving our life forward in this exciting direction together!
I hope it doesn’t take long but am being realistic! Unfortunately for me almost all women in my life with babies got pregnant on the first try! That would be a dream of course! Just truly hoping I can enjoy the process and not get too crazy! And that when it does happen I have a perfectly healthy little one!
Hey bees, finally at CD30, one month after leaving the pill I got my positive OPK, I was super excited, unfortunately my husband was out of town all week but hey my body is working!
Joining in on this thread! My SO and I are thinking of TTC in the spring / summer, assuming it will take some time due to our age (but also fine if it happens faster). We have a lot going on, moving into a new place, talking marriage (neither of us cares about getting married but there are some family pressures) but we don’t want to wait too long on the baby making front because we are already mid 30s and there are some fertility challenges in my family.
When will you start TTC? Sometime between April and July
How old are you and your partner? Both 36
How are you preparing for TTC? Started taking a prenatal, vitamin D and DHA and will be going for a preconception check and to discuss a few family genetic concerns, see if my family doctor thinks I should be referred to a genetics counsellor or have any extra checks due to my age. Eating a plant heavy diet and trying to lose ten to fifteen pounds. BBT temping to check if I’m ovulating when I think I am – I have tracked my period for years, but didn’t actually know if I was ovulating when the app said I was. So far it seems to be bang on!
What are you most excited about? I am excited to see my SO as a dad – he is so caring and responsible I have more faith in his ability as a parent than I do my own! I’m excited to view the world through a little one’s eyes. I’m excited to see what our little one looks like – we are a multiracial couple, so will be interesting to see where our little one ends up. And I’m excited to grow our family and expand the love – we are both really family oriented, so bringing a little one into the picture will hopefully just make things even better.
Any other ramblings you may have: I am excited to start trying but I’m also scared. I’m scared I won’t be able to get pregnant because my mom experienced secondary infertility. I’m scared my beloved dog will hate the baby / toddler – he’s not a huge child fan. I’m scared having a baby will affect my relationship with my guy in a negative way. And I’m scared of the financial impact of a child – we live in an expensive city and while we both do well, you’re only ever one job loss or health issue away from struggling! So it’s a mix of excitement and fear for 2017.
