New, soon to start TTC!
Wed, 01-26-2011 - 1:10pm

Hi y'all! I found this board during an online search for support for women trying to conceive. My husband and I aren't actively "trying" yet - meaning not reading the books and counting days, etc. But I've been off the pill for a little over a month now. We're not taking too many extra precautions to keep from conceiving, but we're not "trying" if that makes sense. Our "official" start date is March, just to give time (as per my gyno) for me to be off the pill two months first.

Anyway, I turn 30 next week, and this is something we'd been considering for a while. The time just feels as right as it's ever going to feel.

I came here hoping I could read stories from other women and get some support, since it's something I'm severely lacking. My mom has been gone for just over eight years now, and I have no grandparents remaining. My husband's family is hard to talk to. His sister won't talk about anything outside her own little bubble of a life, and his mom runs the other way when it comes to anything regarding health. So I need WOMEN to discuss things with!

Like I said, I've been off the pill for one month. Was expecting my time of the month this week, and nothing so far. Not sure what to think about that yet.

Anyway, wanted to say hello to all of you!

Welcome ladies! I'm actually pretty new to this board, but have been on the TTC and IUI boards off & on for a couple years. Been TTC for a year now,started seeing an RE 5 months ago & started having IUI's done at his office last month. Currently I'm in the 1ww, but have had cramping since last night so I'm not hugely hopeful for this month. Anyway, welcome again! Hope you get your BFP's soon!

Welcome to the board, I found this place after my m/c looking to talk to ladies who where trying to have their first. I have found this place to be a great source of knowledge and no one gets tired of talking about TTC because we are equally obsessed lol. I hope your stay is short and sweet!

Welcome aboard! I'm glad you found us because this is truly such a wonderful place to be to discuss the roller coaster of ttc. I don't have anyone IRL who I can talk to about everything because everyone around me seems to get pg the moment they think about it! I have made some great friendships here, and hope that you enjoy getting to know everyone. If you haven't already, check out the Newbie Guide to TTCYFC for some helpful information. I hope the next month flies so you can get really aggressive with ttc...or better yet, you can just get a surprise BFP! Sending loads of baby dust to you!
