Intro: WTT #3

Sun, 04-18-2010 - 2:02pm

Hi everyone! I thought I would come on over and introduce myself. I'm Jess, DH is Pat, and we have two great kids - Conner who is 4 and Emily who is 17 months. We are currently WTT for our 3rd child.


We use NFP, so I guess we are always in the not not trying category, but we are pretty good with the NFP and have been successful so far. We had a false positive back in January which really threw me through a loop. I was *SO* excited when I got my BFP, but then I got a BFN and everything came crashing down. It was horrible! But it brought be back down to reality about the whole TTC thing. We decided to wait until April (ie this month!) to TTC. But now we have decided to wait a little longer. We would like to be in a better financial position and for a few things to clear up at work for me (my current boss is retiring early next year and I want to be there until he leaves). Also, having had two babies in cold months, it would be nice to have a spring or summer baby. So that puts us at waiting until July at the earliest to TTC.


Every month around the time I ovulate, I get the tremendous urge to TTC. Its especially hard because that means that each month I have to make the decision to actively not TTC. Every month I wonder if we are making the right decision, and every month my heart aches when I get my period.


So that's a littl about me! I look forward to getting to know all of you!!!

Hi Jess! Welcome to the board!

Waiting to try can definitely be hard at times! This board is quite helpful for that!

I'm Victoria, 28, DH is 41 and we're WTT our first!

Oh, we don't know our TTC date for sure anymore! I always change my ticker, lol. I think it will be either this summer or fall, but we're moving countries in about a month so it will be a bit to handle for a while...Meanwhile, I've been losing weight and stabilizing my health issues! :)

Hi Jess! Welcome to the board! Emily is GORGEOUS, even with spaghetti on her face! :-)

I'm Becki, your CL of WTT. I"m 24 and my DH Paul is 26, and we're waiting to try for our first. We're not sure when at the moment - right now I'm thinking next year sometime, but I'm mostly waiting for him to be ready. He goes back and forth, but he's getting there.

I have hormonal baby fever too, definitely. Most of the time I've been fine, but I agree, when I ovulate I tend to have it bad (like right now.) Right before my period comes I tend to have it badly too.



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

Welcome =)

Hi Im Mika(24) and DH(31) and I were waiting till this summer, but I think we are going to have to push it back a little. (Will post about that in a min) But welcome to the board and your Emily is precious!! I know its hard for me sometimes to not throw out the window all the reasons we are waiting and just sweet talk my way and try now! haha. Like Ive said before, it may just be easier to just "accidentally" get preggo now so we dont have to stress over when its good time =)

Look forward to "seeing" you around!

Hi Jess. Welcome to the board. Emily is a cutie btw, love your siggy! I know what you mean about consciously not trying around your ovulation time. I have been ovulating since going off BC in September last year. We use condoms so it is really hard not to tell him not to when I get that positive OPK. I only have to wait a little while longer though! Hopefully your wait isn't too long either.
