Hi... I'm Vanessa. My husband and I are just starting to try to concieve. There's so much information out there I don't even know where to start... I'd like some advice, and of course people to discuss things with.

Hi, I'm new too, my husband and I just decided to try to conceive but starting next year, but I'm kind of thinking we should try sooner. I just started looking into preparing for pregnancy and I'm anxious to start, but maybe because there is so much baby "buzz" (my cousin just had her baby in january, sis-in-law last month, another cousin is 3 months pregnant) so everyone looks at us like it's our turn, we have been together 6 years but just got married this past October. How long have you been married till you guys had the serious "baby talk"? Looking forward to talking to a "mommy hopeful"!

We've been married for almost two years, but the baby talk happened when we first started dating (we'd been best friends for 4 years already) I am anxious to start as well, but I'm concerned. I guess I'm kinda scared I may have done dammage to my body in the last two years... IDK.

Well, maybe you should go to your doctor for a check-up and make sure everything is ok and start "preparing" your body for a baby. It is scary to think about if you're body is prepared or not, especially if it's your first time, but I'm sure it will all work out.

My husband and I are hoping for a March 2013 baby, so we will see! Hope we go through this journey together, would like to have someone to talk to about all the wonders of conception and pregnancy.

Baby dust to you and all of us starting out!

I'm happy to talk with you... It'd be kinda nice I think to not feel like I'm the only female in the world who is ttc. It's wierd I guess.. you spend so long trying NOT to get pregnant, it's wierd to think we're finally "allowed" to... if that makes sense.

Yea and now there's an anxiousness to finding out if you get a BFP! Can't wait to find out!
