when you think about ttcing, do you carry on planning your life & embarking on projects regardless, or do you make plans around when you hope to be pregnant & giving birth?
Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
I don't suggest it, in other words - unless your fertility is well proven, and you KNOW you'll get pregnant with a suggestive glance.

I do consider those things but who knows how long it will take when ttc.
i do think a lot each cycle about when i would give birth, usally in relation to my two big family trips out east (just want to be able to fly or bring small baby, rather than be due) or my favorite festival in the summer, would actually rather be preggo at that one!
and while i dont admit it to anyone IRL i always work our what sign i would be having and strongly prefeer a few and feel icky about others. so i admit to "trying a bit harder" on "good months"
of course with a first pregnancy, the birth window is so unknown that all my planning is just for fun and might not work in the slightest.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
