Downgraded from TTC to WTT as of now...

Hi gals... new to this area. I was TTC for a couple of months, trying to hit a golden window of spring 2009 before I start a new & difficult job July 2009. Unfortunately it didn't pan out, so now I'm officially back "on hold" for more than a year (I won't get paid maternity leave until July 2010). I'm pretty bummed about it.

about me-27, still a student, graduating in the spring. My partner is 41 and she works in tech support. Our 8th anniversary is this fall. (of dating, since we aren't allowed to get married). We'd really like to get cracking because my partner is scared of being an "old" mom, but due to her age and health I have to be the one to carry the baby and so we have to time everytihng around my career. Our first choice would probably have been adoption but we aren't allowed to adopt, so we used artificial insemination with donor sperm.

So, I failed my two months of TTC-the second month I don't think I even ovulated. When we TTC next year I'm going to push for Clomid-we can't afford to waste money on cycles where I don't even ovulate! We did buy a cute little bassinet-it was only $10 so we figured what the heck, and it has an attached screen cover to keep the cats away from the baby. I'm planning on taking down to our storage area this afternoon. How's that for depressing?

Hi!

Sorry that you didn't hit the golden window. It is so frustrating to finally be able to try to TTC and then not have it work out right away. There are definitely a few of us who are waiting over a year though, me included:) and we have a buddy group for TTC 2010-2011 in the buddy group and member to member folder.

I'm Ashley, 22, and WTT until my fiance, Thomas 27, and I get married next summer, I finish my BA (also next summer), and he finally feels ready hopefully summer of 2010 but we'll see.

I know it must be hard to put the bassinet away but remember it will still be waiting for you when you get to TTC again:)

Did you chart your BBT to see if you ovulated? In the mean time, you can learn to chart and then, when you're ready again, you'll know when the best time to try is.


I started charting this month. I have PCOS, and if I ovulate, it's most likely every other month. I'm not sure, but so far, CD30 and no ovulation yet.
