Hi everyone! I'd love to join as well.
Where are you in your cycle: should be ovulating soon?
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: none yet
My husband and I have been together for eight years this November; he's 30 and I'm 26. I'm currently a graduate student in evolutionary anthropology and he's a programmer. We live in Northern California (Bay Area) with our nine wonderful, amazing non-human kids. I'm a big fan of knitting, painting, lifting heavy things, running, walking long distances, swimming, and cooking up delicious seasonal vegetarian foods from scratch!
We hadn't considered having biological children anytime soon (we considered adopting in the next couple years) but we recently had a 'scare' that made me realize that pregnancy and childbirth is something I want to experience firsthand, and that we don't have any good reasons to put off trying. I've been charting my temps only for the last couple weeks after reading Taking Control of Your Fertility, and just started checking cervical fluids and position about a week ago. I'm really excited and hope that we get good news in the near-ish future! I'm getting a bit ahead of myself and already looking at midwives - I can't help it.
