Hi Matt's Mom, I'm new and have only meandered in the TWW thread. I'm, as you guessed, in the TWW. Are you TWW or just planning to try next cycle?

Hi faithrising.  wave.gif  Welcome to the One Thread.  

 

We're going to start trying this next cycle.  I'm dying waiting for AF to show.

 

dust.gif for you.

Hi, faithrising!  Welcome.

Hello, everyone.

 

I'm getting mighty antsy!  Today is 11 dpo.  I am going to a natural parenting expo on Saturday, and I plan to test that morning.  I will certainly be in the mood for pregnancy after an event like that. 

 

I'm excited and hopeful, but I'm also realizing that a due date of December 29th will completely change our travel plans for Christmas.  I'll be fine with BFN this month.

Hi Everyone! Can I be added to Waiting to be Ready? This is my first cycle after quitting my BC pills  chartnew.gif We will probably wait two more cycles before TTC. In the meantime it's CTA. All of my pregnancies were surprises so this will be my first go of actually TTC, I am pretty excited!

This will also be my first time actually TTC!! 

 

I met with a doula today to get the DL on the birthing scene here.  She's only ever been to hospital births so far and she said it is really discouraging.  I'm trying to build up my courage to go for a homebirth.  She said she had never been to a birth that was 100% intervention free.  I guess it's not really possible at a hospital.  irked.gif

 

Anyway, we're still waiting a bit.  At least I am.  DH isn't concerned about when the baby would be due, but if I'm having a homebirth and the closest midwife is 40 minutes away, I don't want there to be a bunch of snow on the road!!

Jayray - where do you live?

This cycle is exciting for me - I told my partner, who had previously not been wanting to TTC yet, that I *need* to be TTC. I begged. I cried. I explained. I have a toddler, and I have been wanting another child for more than a year. So, after the last cycle when we got sloppy with condom use, and it looked like I might be PG, my emotions were raw when I started AF.

 

So far this cycle, he has BD'd with me with no protection, no pull-out, and seems happy to be doing so... I think we're finally on the same page, and I couldn't be happier about it!

 

Wishing you all good luck this month, and hoping for some luck for me, too :P

Whoo Hoo!!!!!  I'm an April BFP.  I took a test yesterday at 13 dpo, and it was a nice blue plus sign!  Based on ovulation date, my EDD is December 29.  I've never had a winter baby before!

 

I'm feeling so blessed right now! coolshine.gif

Erica- Congrats!! May you have a healthy and happy pregnancy and birth! joy.gif

 

Valerie- Great to hear dp is now on board with you. It makes such a huge difference and is so stressful if they aren't!

 

MattsMom- You can Move me to the 2WW. I did my trigger shot this morning.

Got you moved JustJenny.  dust.gif Fingers crossed that this is your cycle!

Congrats Erica! biggrinbounce.gif

Sorry I was MIA for a bit.  I'm back to waiting to O again but I'm still there from last cycle so I don't need to be moved. lol.gif

I think we may have had a chemical this last cycle.  Tested positive 11DPO and then tested negative later that day and started spotting.  Back to CD1 today.  Its actually a bit encouraging if it was a chemical though because my BF wasn't entirely sure he was fertile (5 years with his previous girlfriend and never even had a "scare").  I've had some issues in the past as well, including a hospital stay back in 2007 after bleeding for 2 months straight.  But if we had a chemical, we at least know sperm is meeting the egg!  Its a step in the right direction, anyway.

Matt's Mom Thanks for adding me!

 

Erica Congrats on the BFP energy.gif

 

Valarie That's great news about DP! I have been through the same thing and it really makes a difference to have the support.

 

Jayray How long are you waiting to TTC? I am waiting through this cycle and next cycle, so I will probably start TTC around the end of June.
 

Blanca78 Hello from the April 2011 DDC!

 

AFM - I just started my second cycle off of BC pills. The first cycle off the pill went surprisingly well. I had no idea what to expect. I would love to have introductions since I am new to this thread, if people wouldn't mind adding something in a future post to catch me up to their personal story. I did read through all the April previous posts but I didn't go back to March.

That does sound like a chemical hug2.gif but it is absolutely a step in the right direction!

erica, make sure to fill us in on how your next few weeks go. any symptoms? how did your husband react? when are you going to tell the kids? 

 

even though i have been prepping DH for TTC#3 for the last 2 years he is not super excited. he has come around to being supportive and has been helping with all our financial and reno plans to prepare. he seems to get overwhelmed with kids chaos and sleepless nights easier than me. eyesroll.gif so he's not as excited about a newborn as i am. i hope he'll be as thrilled as me when we get a BFP. he is such an awesome dad. 

i am on my last cycle waiting to try. almost ovulating and so counting down the days of condom use! forever! i hope DH will get a vasectomy before i am fertile again postpartum.

the big news in my world is that my mom and stepdad are moving to my area! they live far away (6hrs) and my stepdad got an unexpected promotion. my mom might retire and be full time grandma YAHOO!! that makes me feel worlds better about TTC and support for next postpartum. BUT now i'm a bit concerned about what might be coming, maybe i'll have twins! or be really sick! she will likely be here in the next 2 months so just in time for first trimester help for this busy mom to put her feet up. joy.gif thank you god.  i'm getting ahead of myself but now i can think of ways to tell them about my future BFP in person. maybe have her come over and find a bun in my oven? ha!
