Welcome everyone!  I think that spring might finally be here!  joy.gif


I moved myself from waiting to be ready to WTF is going on with my body.  I took out the nuvaring early Thursday morning and now I'm just waiting, waiting, waiting for AF to arrive.  I hate waiting.


jesepumpkin - it sounds like we have a lot in common.  I'm dying waiting for May to start ttc, and I'm completely obsessed with all things baby.

wave.gif Hope everyone is doing well!  I'm currently 10dpo after IUI.  Tested this morning and got a bfn greensad.gif Hopefully its just too early to test and I'll get my positive in a few days. Its hard when taking progesterone because I can't really symptom spot, lol.  All the symptoms I get from taking it are pregnancy symptoms too. So I have no clue if I'm pregnant or not! So I've been doing as much as possible to distract myself....

hi matts mom. yes ttc#3 in may, we're on the same track! I had the copper IUD but i removed it in Sept as we were going to TTC in november but then changed our minds. I've been trying not to get pregnant since then and we have done it! our past track record for that is not great lol. Hope your cycle kicks in soon. 

how exciting justjenny, hope you get a BFP in the next few days!


i've got my stockpile of tests just waiting. seeing as how my first two pregnancies were not planned, i haven't had a 2ww before and i think it will be beside myself! i'll need your help to get through it.  TTC#2 we were almost ready, going to start the next cycle. i got my IUD out early so i'd be able to clear the copper with a couple menses. We were using condoms and i got pregnant. so i had the excitement of preparing for it but no 2ww. 


I spent the easter weekend with my nephew who is 3 months old and so adorable and happy. I loved every minute of it! His sweet baby smell and smiles. The idea of having a boy is growing on me.

Thanks for the new thread!  Happy (late) Easter!

JustJenny - FX for a BFP!  dust.gif  


jesepumpkin - Little boys are amazing, aren't they?  I adore my two boys, but it's time for a girl.  energy.gif


sleeping beauty - Thanks for the belated Easter wishes.  We didn't really celebrate.  They boys got some nerf guns and itunes giftcards.  Both gifts were a hit.  


AFM - still waiting... and waiting... and waiting.  I'm trying to keep myself distracted, but it's not going well.  I just want to know wtf is going on with my body.  I'm so impatient it isn't even funny.  


Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Matt's Mom... With how slow the ONE Thread has been over the last several months, you might want to consider making this thread run for the entire month of April. I'm fairly certain that you can change the name.

Well, its official. The iui was a bust gloomy.gif. I kinda knew the last few days so I've had time to process it. Had myself a good cry and am waiting for AF to arrive in the next few days. Matts Mom you can move me to Waiting to O. Thanks!


Lots of baby dust to all of you who are still in the tww dust.gif

Hello Ladies!


I would like to be added to the "Waiting to be Ready" list and start following along.  :)  We are going to wait another couple of cycles to start trying because there are enough holiday babies in this family (between DH, our sons, and our niece, we have Oct, Nov, Dec, and Jan covered!).  But it's close enough that I am starting to get really excited and wanted to get back in touch with MDC since I met such a great group of ladies here during my second pregnancy.

Sending warm thoughts to those who have already started the journey!  dust.gif

Hi, everyone.  I introduced myself on another thread.  Here's the quick version:  Erica--mom of three--taking a low key approach to TTC #4.  We are on cycle four of being open to conceiving. 


I'm looking forward to making some friends here.


I think I ovulated today, so please add me to the Two Week Wait!

post #17 of 70

Hi all. :)  I'm still waiting... should O in the next couple days though!  

The last 2 weeks went by pretty fast because I haven't been obsessing over it.  So hopefully I can manage to keep it together during the 2WW as well. 


We're in no big rush as we'd like to get married this year.  But (not so secretly) I'm much more excited about the potential of a baby than a wedding.  Weddings aren't really my thing. orngtongue.gif

Plus, I haven't been pregnant in 8 years and this will be my BF's first.  I'm just really excited to make him a daddy and have an itty bitty again. orngbiggrin.gif

I'm waiting to be ready. Still TTC, of course, but this is cycle is reserved for ultrasounds and a likely hysteroscopy. I do not want to unknowingly put a little embryo through all that, so I'm waiting for May's cycle to TTC.
post #19 of 70

I'm new and can be put on the Waiting to be Ready list! 


We moved to a new place since I had my other two and now I'm scared.  We have a small hospital with one OB and nearby homebirth midwives.  I gave birth with CNMs in a free standing birth center with my first two and I'm feeling scared of homebirth AND hospital birth.  I know, it's dumb.  I'm also strangely afraid to give birth again.  I had fine, uncomplicated natural births both times, although the pushing with my second was significantly more painful than with my first.  I think that's what's psyching me out.


So anyway, here I am!

wave.gif Jayray!  Glad to have you on the list.  I hope you're able to get to a place where you are comfortable ttc soon!  There are a couple of us ttc #3 so you'll have good company.
