Heeeeey ladies! Omg I haven't been on here for such a long time! I missed Christmas and everything! I'm so sorry. I always just assumed I would continue to post on here frequently after the baby was born but I never in my life imagined how exhausted I would be! Physically and emotionally. But I hope to get things flowing again with you guys. I missed you so much. Not much going on with us. Lil man is 8 months old and I still can't believe he is here. We have not long got back from visiting my grandparents in Dominica for a month. Little Z was so good on the plane rides there and back, and took to the island life like a duck to water.

How has everyone been? I can see I have missed a lot, but keep up with KN through our blogs (which I post on more). Hope you're doing ok though KN, I think about you all the time. xxx

What about the rest of you? Fairytales you ok? Anyone trying right now? How are all the little bambinos doing? Oh and hello to any new people

Wow 8 months old that time has flown past!!
I'm doing ok my thyroid however isn't playing nice so treatment is on hold until it behaves as my doc thinks it's the cause of my losses so don't want to do anymore until it's sorted but I hope it's soon as the switching up and down on the meds is making me sick dizzy and tired all the time which isn't very nice lol.

Hope everyone else is doing well xx

Wow - it's been ages (again) since I've been on here. Just caught up on all the posts. Congratulations Melody and DarkRiver - your babies are gorgeous!

Fairytales - sorry you're having such a difficult time at the moment.

I'm still waiting. I really, really hope that this year I will finally start trying. I knew that last year wouldn't be the year, so coming on here was getting me a bit down. I managed not to think about things too much last year, but more and more this year, I find myself thinking of having a child. Fingers crossed I am actually able to do something about it this year.

Ethan James Buchanan born 29th March 17. 7lb 13oz. I was in labour for 12 hours which was double the time with my girl. Labour was very different though. I did it all again just using gas and air from 7cm. And this time no interventions and I pushed him out myself. The hardest thing I have ever done but wow that feeling of accomplishment.

Oxygen, he is adorable! Congratulations. And it sounds like you coped really well with quite a long labour.

Yeah Melody, I too have been a bit slack on here! It's crazy haha. Definitely keep more up to date with things on my blog though! Things get too hectic sometimes I think! Trying to decide whether I go ahead and transfer this month or not.

I've had a hysteroscopy done, and a scratch, and also have had a massive list of blood tests done too - still waiting on results though. So doctors are trying to find a cause for my inhostile uterus - but until then, things are a bit crazy!!

Ohhh Caite, I really hope this is your year! Waiting is especially hard, so all my fingers and toes are crossed for you that 2017 brings great things!

Oxygen, hes gorgeous!! Well done!

Hi everyone! Although I've been lurking around and not posting much, I wanted to thank you all for sharing your stories, your pregnancies, efforts to conceive and more on here.... as a "wanna be" choice mom, all of your conversations, joys, heartbreaks and everything in between have been a wealth of information and reassurance as I start my own motherhood journey...so THANK YOU to each and everyone of you.

Melody: An extra special thank you to you, reading through YEARS of posts and watching your journey unfold in minutes and hours compared to the years you lived it was incredible, I felt all of your joy and sadness and fear and I am so happy you have your little boy that you waited so long for.

Oxygen: Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy, he is perfect! Looks like a little doll! And your daughter is darling-she looks so proud in your profile pic!

Caite: Hello! I don't think we've chatted before, I am new here. Is it rude to ask what you are waiting for to start TTC? Just curious because I've had conversations with myself about starting TTC now or waiting longer...but I've been waiting years!

K.N.-Hope you get good results on the bloodwork you are waiting on and are back to TTC soon

AFM: April 2017 will officially mark my first month ever TTC. Yes, compared to you ladies I am a serious newbie...so please, any and all advice is welcome-I could use all the help I can get! Lol. Just finished AF and watching and waiting for ovulation now. I was going to work with a local bank but have settled on a known donor who lives a few hours away...I am typically way too cautious of a person to go this route but everything fell into place and I am excited about TTC with fresh vs. frozen sperm. Found my donor on Known Donor Registry...is married with two healthy children (1boy, 1 girl)...his wife got cancer and cannot have any more children but he doesn't feel "done". She is on board and supportive. Donor is also donating to two lesbian couples, in addition to little ole me Contract and STD testing is all in place, just fyi. Though it is a serious risk no matter how you look at it.

While unbelievably excited about actually TTC for the first time ever...I feel surprisingly calm and relaxed about the whole thing...this is obviously a life changing decision, especially should I get first time lucky (which come on, doesn't everyone hope for that!?) but I am simply ready, done waiting for life to be perfect and content in knowing that life will always have challenges, changes and rough times...with or without a baby.

I will admit I'm stuck in the first timer way of thinking that of course it'll happen right away, since I've never ttc before and have never even been exposed to sperm (asexual virgin here lol). But I hope to lean on you ladies and these boards for support as I start my journey. Thanks for reading
