    Are you TTC#1? #2? etc... 1st

    How long have you been TTCing? This is my 6th month

    Are you charting and or using OPKs? both

    Are you seeing a specialist? not yet. My Dr. said to give it 6 months, so I figure that I will finish the rest of this C, and see what happens

    What issues are you battling? With TTC, I'm very concerned that it may not happen because of some previous issues.

    How old are you? 25

    Where do you live? MA

    How many kids do you hope to have? 4 but I'll be happy with just one at this point

    What do you think about multiples (twins, etc)? I think it would be great but a single birth is more of what I'm looking for, I can't imagine being a 1st time mom to twins or more

    What do you think about multiples (twins, etc)? I think it would be scary but at this point I'd just be happy to be pregnant. I think it's pretty unlikely that we'd have them though because they don't run in either of our families
