Name/Partner's name:

Where are you in the process?

Do you chart? Want to share?

Doing anything new this month? (HA! I orginally typed morning. I don't want to know. ;))

Any other kids/pets/ruffians at your house?

What's your favorite food to eat when you're PMSing?

((hugs)) E... I think the average number of cycles is 6 for couples to conceive, so you're right at that point.... it's just hard when it seems like everyone around you is getting there easier/faster.

Allison: I'm sad to see you go, I have really enjoyed connecting with you again, and I wish you all the best.

Alison, I will miss "seeing" you around in this thread... your personal story was one of the reason I'm always lurking here! I understand though... both times I tried to chart I had such crazy cycles that i felt completely out of place compared to the other girls... Anyways, if you feel up to it, I would love it for you to post on the other sections (like chit chat and games). After all... you are definitely a WTT grad!! And I hope you baby comes really soon for you!

I have the mobile version on my Iphone but I haven't really used it much since i've been on the pill. I just downloaded it and I only use it to just track my cycles. But I'll have to take a look at the features. Thanks everyone for all the input.

Jessica - good luck with your TWW! My fingers are crossed for you :)

Kate & Sandy, Thanks, you're both right that it's best that I'm not pregnant the day I start my new job. I think that would have been pretty stressful, and I'm sure my new bosses wouldn't have been totally thrilled about it either. Even not getting PG next month would probably be best, so I'm there closer to a year when I go on maternity leave. DH and I are both in agreement though that we aren't stopping or pausing TTC efforts for ANY reason, not even work. We want to start a family NOW. Jobs can come and go, we couldn't predict when I would finally get this job offer or when my start date would be and we can't predict the future. I know different people have different opinions on that, but for us personally, work is not the priority.

Alison - we'll miss you in this thread! Please stop back by anytime you want, I'm still very interested in your journey!

RE: paid FF or free? I just re-upped my paid FF membership today. You get a discount for renewing before your time is up. I've also heard you can get a good discount by 'liking" FF on facebook but I'm not taking that risk! ;) lol

I use the free version as well... but I love when they let you use the paid version for a few days for free... the added features are great, but I'm not sure worth the $$.

Sandy - I used the paid version when getting pregnant with Gabby and the free version now, and there isn't much difference. I downloaded the APp for my ipod touch and you get more functionality out of that then you do online, so if you have a smart phone or something like that I HIGHLY suggest downloading it.

Online it doesn't tell me the Points for Pregnancy, or tell me if I am fertile or not, but on the app it gives me a bit more of that functionality + it's easy to use.

I didnt feel like paying for it. Plus sometimes they give you the VIP version for a few days at a time when they are trying to sell it.

I've always just used the free version. I don't need it to tell me my chances. That causes extra stress for me.

Thanks Christine. I was hoping you could use it and get most out of it without the paid subscription. It is a lot of money. I think the other program I have on my phone that I use similar to FF only cost 2.99 or something. When we were TTC David I did get the paid version but I didn't think it was worth the money.
