    Well sense this board is a bit slow i figured to get get going a little with a question. So sense this is an almost ready to TTC board, when is everyone planning on starting to TTC? Also is there a reson for that time to start?

    For us we are starting at the end of next month when i am done with my last pack of birth control that i just started. We are waiting till then bc we have a vegas/oklahoma trip planned and i dont want to be pregnant till after that. If #2 is anything like my DS then i would be and that would kinda be a bummer in vegas.

    I agree!!!! LOL, def would not want to KU in Vegas!

    Dh and I decided that on our 1 year anniversary we would stop the BC.....However, I actually finish my pack of live pills in 6 days!!!!!!! whooo hoooo. LOL I askked him if we should do one more pack and he was like he11 no! For the heck of it, I did do the webmd ovulation predictor and it looks like I OV while we are on our vacation

    Well I am joining this board a little bit early We are not ttc until maybe next Feb. We are waiting until then because we have a few bills that are quite large and once they are paid off in Feb we will be able to afford a hospital bill. We have insurance but of course nothing is covered 100%. But we are open to throwing caution to the wind before than( maybe practice before officially ttc) So who knows lol.

    Hi, I'm Jen and I just found this board and would like to join you ladies.

    We (I) am waiting until next year because my DH works in law enforcement and is currently on night shifts. We have a DD already who will be 2 next month and I am afraid of getting PG with #2 and not having him home at night to help me. I work full-time outside the home and I think that having a toddler to keep up with after working a full day while being PG again and possibly not feeling well without my DH there to help me will be too much. Plus, once the new baby is born it will be even harder to juggle all those things. DH would love to start TTC as soon as possible but I am the one holding out until we find out if he can go back to working days next year.

    Hi everyone! I'm Kary and my husband and I are going to try for #3 at the end of July-August time frame. My last pack of pills is done this Saturday and I have already started taking my prenatals since that is SO important! I'm a fertile myrtle too so if I get pregnant as fast i did with my boys I should be good to go in August...but who knows...I haven't been preggo for 5 years and my body has changed. So not much waiting time for us, but wanting to wait until after our trip to Lake Cumberland in July since it will be a big party trip with our neighbors! I'm SO excited and sure that I want to be pregnant that I'm willing to be preggo in Wine Country when we go in October! Cheers to us all in this group!
    ~life only deals you what you can handle~so bring on baby 3!

    Hi everyone! I also would like to join you girls. DD is 6 months old and I am looking to start TTC in July. I really would like a spring baby (April, May, June baby) Although I am BF which may cause some problems TTC, but would like to join you ladies regardless.
    mrslee97658 replied to jemms's response:
    Welcome of course you can join us, heck I just did lol and I'm not looking to ttc until next Feb. lol. Yeah the BF might cause some problems but if you are getting your period regulary you should be able to ovulate in order to conceive.
