I’ve looked at some of the threads, but I seriously can’t figure out all of the acronyms. It’s almost like reading another language.

We are definitely not TTC yet, but hopefully within the next year we will be, so yeah I lurk.

We got married in October and are NTNT right now as well.  We plan on TTC around August though if we dont get KU before hand! We just wanted to enjoy our time as newlyweds and not DTD just because I’m ovulating.  We are hoping that we just have a surprise baby.  With that said, I am taking precautions just in case I were to get pregnant (ie, taking prenatals, eating healthier, limiting my alcohol consumption…)We just don’t want the pressure!

I totally lurk. we’re not engaged yet and not ttc but we hope to start ttc in  about 2 years. due to some medical issues that I’m dealing with, I am terrified that I won’t be able to have kids. I’ve learned a lot about ttc from these lovely bees and I feel like the more I know about it, the more control I have. I know that doesn’t make sense because what it’ll come down to is whether or not my body will cooperate and I don’t have any control over that. I guess I feel like I’m walking around in a dark, scary room but maybe armed with some knowledge of how this is supposed to work, it’ll feel like I have a flashlight. plus, a few bees’ stories have stuck out to me and I keep checking back. I feel like I’m eavesdropping but I’m rooting for them!

Yup, I lurk.  We aren’t TTC yet, but I will probably be going off birth control in a month or two.

Guilty! We arent going to ttc for about 2-3 years, but I still want one now! lol.

Question- what the heck is NTNT? Or DH? Foot in Mouth

@out4answers:  NTNT= not trying not to (conceive) and DH= dear husband.

 

We were TTC for 13 months, but now we will be waiting a year or so (unless FH changes his mind) due to recent events…so I definitely still lurk here.

I lurk but that’s because post-wedding I became this crazy – I want a baby now person! Hehe if I wasn’t so adamant I wouldn’t fly pregnant Darling Husband would’ve been ok with that (we have a family thing we have to fly for in March) and we would’ve already been NTNT. Instead we are being careful (boo) and I lurk to try and ease my baby urges 

PS it really doesnt help hehehe

Yeah, thats me.  It’s good to know that there are others.   We wouldn’t be TTC for another year or two.  But I can’t help it, I want to sooner.  I’m so jealous of all you girls that get to TTC right after the wedding, and the lurking doesn’t really help.

I’m a lurker. We might never have kids, but to me the baby boards are some of the best, so many raw emotions, wonderful stories, good advice, and educational posts. It makes me feel like I may be a bit more ready for a baby when the time comes….not for about 10 years :

@newname_99:  @monet11:  It doesn’t have to become like “oh no, I’m Oing, we have to BD now“. We’re just NTNTC and I take prenatals, etc, but I started charting with temps and everything so that I find out when exactly I do O because my cycles can be irregular and I don’t want to waste money on HPTs when I just O’d late. Even if you chart, you don’t have to tell your Darling Husband that you’re Oing; you can continue exactly the same way as before but keeping track of when you actually O so you know if your timing was any good for the month. Not everyone has the 14 day LP that those apps assume. The average woman has a 10-18 day LP (always the same for the same woman though).

O = ovulate, BD = Baby Dance (sex), NTNTC (or NTNT) = Not Trying Not To [Conceive], HPT = Home Pregnancy Test, Darling Husband = Dear Husband, LP = Luteal Phase (length of between O and AF), AF = Aunt Flow (period/menstruation)
