Hi Everyone thanks for the replies!! It's good to be here. :) Sorry it took me so long to get back and check them we have had some medical emergencies in my family the last few weeks - my Mom had surgery for cancer, then I had surgery for something else unexpectedly, but hopefully we are all on the road to recovery. :) Yes Asheo I think that is what my doc means - just have fun with it as in enjoy the sex don't worry about the charting, etc. She probably sees people start to see sex as a chore if they are the types that usually love it, so I imagine that is what she means. I almost don't want to know when I am fertile because of my husband's schedule as in he is here for a straight week, then out of town for a straight week with no hope of changing it (he's a pilot) so if I am fertile when he is gone, I can't do anything about it anyway and that might be really frustrating. Glad to hear I am not alone in this boat as in I am not really excited to go down this road, yet it sounds like I will some day realize "wow I was missing out I am glad to be here". Well, again, glad to have found this board and "met" you all. See you around here!

haha have fun with it? sex is a chore IMO, so charting is the way to go for me! I know when I HAVE to do it that way, and it also helps to know your body better, I ovulate anywhere from CD 14 - 19, that's a HUGE window and could very easily be missed if I don't pay close attention... I also like to know when I ovulated so I'll know my exact due date instead of "an estimate"... my DD was a due date baby!

Welcome to the board. I am the same age as you, I turn 36 in September. I am feeling the "crunch" and I arleady have one however I know I want two and I don't have a ton of time left but we want them at least 3 years apart. I hope things go smoothly for you and you are able to concieve quickly when it's time.

I went off BCP in December 2008 and I started charting and I was getting so frustrated so the month I got pregnant I had given it up and it seems that is the time of when it happened. Not sure what I will do the second time around. I may be a little more worried about time since I will be older and I don't have a ton of time to waste.

Welcome to the board and congrats on setting a date! I'm a WTT grad, mom to a one year old, and back to WTT for more!

I went off BCP and charted (checking CM and temp only, not checking CP) for 5 cycles using fertilityfriend.com and was fortunate to get PG the first cycle we decided to NPP. It's an exciting, emotional journey but all worth it in the end! I would also recommend reading Toni Weschler's 'Taking Charge of Your Fertility'. Lots of great info!

GL!

Hi there! You sound a lot like me. My name is Emy, I'm 34 and was on the fence for a looong time about whether or not to have kids. DH always wanted them but me... I went back and forth a lot. What finally got me off the fence was not the realization of really wanting kids, but the realization that I didn't NOT want them. I always figured something would hit me to make me desperate to have them but in the end there was no desperation, just realizing "now or never." Of course now that we have had DD #1, I really, really, really wish I had gotten off the fence sooner!! DD completes my life in a way I didn't even know was lacking before. And now I'm back WTT for #2.

Hi, welcome to the board! My name is Becki, I'm 25 and my DH and I are waiting to try for our first, too. What should we call you?

Congrats on deciding to have kids - and setting a date/timeframe! How long have you been married? I agree with you about taking it easy to TTC, I'm not planning on charting and temping unless it's taking awhile and I get impatient. I have a general idea of when I ovulate, and I'll check date ranges on online calculators, but I think that should be plenty. At least I"m hoping. We have no date yet though - still in the talking stages.
