I think it's about time for a roll call so we can get to know each other a bit better :smileywink:

Please give us your name, age, TTC# and how long you've been TTC.  Feel free to tell us a little about your life, such as SO, furbabies, employement, etc. 

Also, I have some fun quesitons for you to answer:

What's your favorite activity during the summer?

What's your go-to dish if you are invited to a BBQ?

Would you rather spend a summer vacation in the mountains or at the beach?

Hi, I'm Katie, 35, DH is Mike, 45. We are TTC #3. I am a chef (well SAHM now with an online bakery) and he is a pilot in the USAF. We just moved from Charleston, SC to Middletown, DE. After 3 ectopics, 3 MC, 2 rounds of failed IVF I got pg naturaly with out 2 year old and ot pg. three months later with our 1 year old. We're trying for one more, hopefully a boy but a third girl would be great too! I go off the pill two months ago and waited for AF for 6 weeks then had 2 in a month so not sure when it's going to happen but hope it does!!

What's your favorite activity during the summer? 
     LOL, after being pg the last two summers in Charleston, SC heat and not leaving the house, I am enjoying walking around with the girls and sitting on the patio during sunset. 

What's your go-to dish if you are invited to a BBQ? 
     Devilled Eggs for sure! 

Would you rather spend a summer vacation in the mountains or at the beach?
     Toughie. If the beach had a nice breeze and was around 85 degrees then for sure the beach. If not, the mountains!

Since we live in the mountains I will have to say the beach. Although I am always very thankful and excited to see those mountains coming back into view!

I'm Kristin, 30 (and a half!), and been TTC #1 for 17 months now. Just took my first round of clomid and I'm in the TWW...

I have two kitties that I adore and a husband I adore even more! I work in property management in a primarily college community... lots of conflict resolution and customer service!

Favorite summer activity- going to the pool with a good book! Can't get enough!

BBQ dish- I'm a horrible cook, so I always go to Wal-Mart and pick up a couple containers of potato salad!

And I'm a beach girl all the way. I would live on the beach if I could.

Name: Casey

Age: 23

TTC#: We have only really been TTC #2 for about two months now, and I know that I can expect to wait a few more months for my positive test:smileyhappy:

My husband and I just got married in April of this year, so this will be his "first" baby.  I have a 4 yr 4 month old son, Zachary, from a previous relationship.  Currently, I work part-time as a receptionist at an architect firm.  However, I am in nursing school and will graduate with my BSN in April of 2013, woohoo! 

Favorite summer activity: We love to go to the waterparks around here, and we love to BBQ!

Go-To-Dish: I love to bring fruit salad to a BBQ, to me that's what summer is all about :smileyhappy:

Name: Laura (29)

Family: DH (33), DD (1)

TTC #2 - we're currently on our 3rd cycle.  it only took 2 cycles to conceive DD so i had hoped it would be just as quick the second time around.  I had a physical done in february and the doctor discovered that I have elevated TSH levels (@ 4) so I started synthroid 6 weeks ago....perhaps that was causing issues with my first two cycles?!?!?!

DH and I are both actuaries working for insurance companies - we actually met at work, but I switched jobs so we wouldn't have to work together anymore.....then we got married, moved to a different state and are employed by the same company again....oops!  At least we work in totally different departments :smileywink:

Favorite Summer Activity: lounging in the sun with a book in my hand!

BBQ Item: I usually buy something if I can (not into cooking too often)....preferably alcohol (though not so much this summer with TTC)

Beach or Mountains: Definitely the beach....preferably in the caribbean :smileywink:

Hello all!

My name is Tiffany, 31, DH is 32, TTC #2.  This is cycle 10.  I had a m/c in May.  I was honestly hoping to have had baby #2 by now or at least be close to the end of a pregnancy, but, alas, that was not meant to be.  I am a woking mom four days of the week, and a SAHM the other three, lol.  We have a huge chocolate lab who is great with DD :smileyhappy:

My favorite summer activity is going to the pool and curling up with a good book in the shade.

My go-to dish for a BBQ is loaded baked potato salad, purchased from my local deli, lol.  I am soooo not a cook!

Hands down, summer vacation in the mountains.  I'll save the tropical get-a-way for the winter :smileyhappy:

It looks like we have a few new ladies including myself so I figured I would bump this post

I'm Cat 31 and DH is 33
We are ttc# 2. Dd is 3 1/2. This is our first cycle. I'm waiting for af. My temp dropped this morning so it's only a matter of time. I'm am a makeup artist and a chronic coupon cutter. (not so crazy like the tv show). I just started scrapbooking. Poor DH I'm always doing something. But my poor dd didn't even have a baby book so I started scrapping her life.
My favorite summer activity is definitely canoeing. We own our own and live about 15 minutes from a small and huge river. We also canoe camp. It's so awesome! Dd and I go to the beach all the time. We are 20 minutes from the beach and 45 from destin so we spend lots of time on the water
My fav BBQ dish to bring? Macaroni salad and I make a mean chocolate pudding pie. It tends to rock faces
Mountains or beach? It's usually the beach but this summer we spent a week in north Georgia in the mountains and on a gorgeuos lake. It was amazing.
