Newbie here and we have a date!!

Hi ladies! I just thought I would introduce myself because my husband and I have finally started talking about when we would like to start TTC again. Well, I shouldn't say "again", because our 6 month old son was a total surprise and we were definitely NOT TTC at that point.

My husband and I wish we could start TTC soon for a late spring or summer 2009 baby, but I'm in grad school right now and there's just no way it would be a good idea since I will still be taking classes next summer. BUT, we've finally decided that we will start TTC late January 2009! That would give me an early Nov 2009 due date. I know it sounds silly to say that due date so matter-of-factly, but considering with our 6mo old son I got pregnant while devotedly on the pill, I don't think we'll have much trouble conceiving the first month we try as long as I know I'm ovulating.

If life decides to surprise us and I don't get pregnant in January, we'll wait and try again in April for a January 2010 due date.

I'm so excited to join a board of women waiting to try, since now that's what I'm doing too! Any tips to make me feel less miserably impatient?!

Welcome.
I'm Katie (24) and DH is Brad (28). Yay for you and your DH being on the same page. I am planning on TTC in Sept '09 (I on the other hand need to convince my DH of that date). As for not feeling impatient... I'm not the best person to answer that question, but I'm certain some of the wonderful ladies on this board will give you some great ideas. Personally, I think this board has been helping me. BTW your son is adorable!!!

Renee:

1) Ortho tri-cyclen lo
2) PERFECT use. Seriously, I don't mean to brag, but I had a cell phone alarm go off every evening so I would remember to take it at the same time every day.
3) I had been on it for almost exactly 2 years when DS was conceived.

Hope that helps your wishful thinking/scientific curiosity! And BTW, there is pretty much no question that is too personal. The ladies on my playgroup board are not shy about TMI questions, especially when we were all pregnant. It's therapeutic sometimes to tell people things online that you would never ever ever say to your friends/family IRL :-)

Natalie-

Keeping busy shouldn't be a problem with full time grad school and a baby who's probably going to start crawling in the next month :)
