This board seems so empty without a TTC thread... so I thought I would start one... a place for those to chat that are TTC or getting close to TTC.

Allison: good to hear you're going to "get the ball really rolling".... and no, I don't think calling your DR's douches is the way to start off... ha ha ha.

I guess I'll join this too since I'm about the same timeframe as Christine. Still aren't sure if we are going to TTC in June or July.

I am in the July'ish range as well. All pending on DH finding a job. He has a summer job right now that will go through September and starts as soon as he gets here after he gets done with his finals in May. Its above min wage though less then what I make but its a job!

I'll join here too! I'm waiting on my college of social work registration before we TTC and I really have no idea when to expect it. I hope it comes any time now, its been over 16 weeks since I sent it off.

Maxim turns 2 on May 11 and thats another marker I'm waiting for too.

Other than that, the only thing I'm waiting for is my 30th birthday which is May 8 and my birthday bash which is in June. After that I'm pretty open to when we'll TTC. I'm getting sort of anxious but also happy to wait a bit longer too. Im not in a big rush, I know it will happen before the end of this year.

Cassie - Yay for DH finding a temp job! Hey, a jobs a job at least! I feel you on the insurance woes. We were in a similar situation when Selin was born. Our deductible started over in Jan. and she was born in Feb. so it took us awhile to pay off the hospital bill. I just found out recently that now that I'm a teacher (but I'm on the exact same plan I was on when Selin was born since I'm working for the same main organization) our deductible starts over every July so this should hopefully work in our favor since we're hoping for a late spring baby. Hope your SIL is allowed to finish her schooling.

Ruby - Welcome to the thread! Isn't is wild that we're all WTT together again? It's like deja vu. Are you going back to school or by 'college' do you mean like joining a professional organization? What do you have planned for your birthday bash? Up until recently, I too was wavering on when to TTC, esp. on the those tantrum days, lol, but in the end I know DH and I are as ready as we'll ever be to go from 1 to 2.

What are you all using for BC right now?

I was on the minipill until AF returned last June (after 15 months) and then I had some major midcycle cramping so my MW told me I had to choose something else. I didn't want to go back on the regular pill and didn't want to do an IUD or the shot since we were planning to TTC

Speaking of BC... I'm back on the mini-pill after an insurance issue and having to use condoms for months. My cycles have been completely out of whack since they came back (5 months PP), some as short at 14 days and some as long as 52 days.... but I'm just really nervous about only being on the mini-pill right now. It's driving me batty... and not knowing when AF is really due or not.... blah. Sorry for my whine.

Anyhow we're not looking at TTC until later this year... we want a late summer/fall baby.

Christine, our BC is first off distance and secondly just condoms. I decided not to go back on BC and didn't really want an IUD or anything so we are just doing condoms till the time comes.
