This last month I was begging DH for a puppy. We already have 2 dogs and really don't need another in our small house, but it just suddenly meant SO much to me. Then one day DH and I talked about it and came to the conclusion that I was just desperately looking for something to nurture since I was feeling pessimistic about ever having a baby. I realized that's completely true. I've got this mama instinct that doesn't have enough of an outlet right now, and it's coming out in crazy ways. I'm a teacher (8th grade), so I'm actually looking forward to going back next week so I can do some nurturing again.

Hi ladies! Do you mind if I join you? I'm about to finish my last pack of birth control pills and start TTC. So very excited I'm planning to jump right in with OPKs and temping. I'm feeling a little bit crazy about the whole thing so I'd love to have the support but I don't want to tell friends or family that we're trying since I think it will be too much pressure. I'm 29, will be 30 in May.

I too have been a bit obsessive over symptoms. I have wanted to have kids for a very long time but always wanted to wait until I was married. Now, the baby itch is there and it's strong! DH is happy with the "do what comes naturally and see how it goes approach" so that is what we are doing for now.

A couple of things I am doing just for myself: we are getting a dog and I will be the one walking the dog (great way to get exercise!).
Walking the dog is a great way to exercise. I had to watch my mom's dog for a couple of weeks and really enjoyed my walks so I've kept it up a bit more!!!

Good luck on your physical Monday!

We've been trying for 11 months and DH has sperm issues so I'm starting on Clomid, 100mg, tonight...
Nice to meet you! Apparently twins run on my husbands side and they are all convinced we'll have twins!

Hi everyone! I just turned 31, my husband is 30, and we're starting to try for our first this month - we've been waiting (impatiently) for insurance to kick in. Late 20s/early 30s is a pretty normal time to start in our social circle, but it seems pretty old compared to the average on this site, doesn't it?

I'm nervous but very excited. I'm not doing anything beyond keeping track of the first day of each period for now - my cycles are regular, I don't have reason to believe I'll have trouble conceiving, so we'll give it a few months and see what happens before I let myself stress about temperatures and ovulation kits and such. Expect me to start seriously obsessing in a couple weeks! It'll be all I can do to not pee on sticks every day for the second half of January.

I suspect the baby urge was a factor in us adopting a second dog earlier this year, but I had some more logical reasons for it, too

Good luck to everyone!

Hi there! Yeah, it does, a little. That's pretty much normal in my social circle too (I'm originally a Californian) but then we moved to North Carolina for a few years and I felt like I was so behind my coworkers. I try to remember that of all our friends only a few have babies and one couple is a little older than us. Then I feel right on time

Hi, my family and friends also don't know that we are ttc. We've been married for 2 1/2 yrs but been together for almost 10. Since we got married, the questions about when the baby is coming have tripled, but we've always just smiled and said it's coming...

Hello All!! I would love to have some buddies! I am 31, I will be 32 in February. I have been married for 6 months and was only on birth control for 5 months. I stopped taking it after we were married for one month. My DH is itching for a baby and we talked about trying to be done by the time I'm 35. He is 3 years younger than me and tends to be a worrier.

AF is supposed to show today, but no sign yet. I got a BFN on New Years eve... I wanted to have some champagne 😊.

I do tend to want to pee on a stick quite often, just because I am an impatient person. I like to know things right away so these past 3 TWW have been awful! This time I am trying to just be more relaxed about the whole thing.

I am also a teacher! I teach Jr. High band in Texas. It is such a fun and crazy job, I am not really ready for my break to be over!

How long has everyone been married? Let's be friends!
