I added the siggy in. I am so happy to some friends to chat with about all this!
Poppybug - We just may be around the same time!! How exciting!
Simno1 - I have scared days and excited days. As a mix I am anxious. Today I am in a super excited mood and feel very ready!! Next week may be another different story!!
I am excited to have a bump. I can't wait to go shopping and do a registry just like you Dodgegirl! I am worried about the sickness aspect - my friend just got out of the hospital for being so incredibly nausous/dehydrated/can't keep anything down. She has a pump type thing in her to help with the morning (all day) sickness she is having!!
I too have been temping Swanxxsong. This is my 2nd month. I am on CD 13 and had a big dip yesterday and another small dip the am. My temp should rise tomorrow to confirm my OV today.
I stopped my BC in January and have had 3 absolutely textbook perfect cycles. I have OV'd on CD 13 of a 26 day cycle. LP is 13 days. I am so happy about this!
Soon my ticker will be below 3 months!! I can't wait!!
Just remove the *s before you hit the save signature button and you're good!
Fingers crossed for you, Mrs Mel, that it all goes to normal quickly!
I am, admittedly, nervous, simno. Excited, and nervous. xD
Wow, I'm jealous snowflake - I hope I regulate as quickly as you do, and that my cycles are 'right' off the bat! lmfao. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed and am saying a loud, chanting prayer for such. We'll see how it goes! I'm probably more impatient, right now, to see if I ovulate this month, more than anything else. Is that sad? Probably. lmao.
Gosh I nearly couldn't find all of you! Hello to all the new people - good to see you!
I've been a bit busy the last few days with work and decorating our house - it's a total wreck, well not quite, but it does need a lot doing. We ordered our new kitchen on Monday, and we also ordered the new carpet for our bedroom.
Anyhow, remember that job I was talking about applying for about a week ago, well I had a long chat with DH this evening as I've been having second thoughts. As great as it would be, if I got the job it would mean having to put TTC on hold until the end of the year, and I just was so sad about the idea. I don't know about you girls, but thinking about having a baby is all-consuming for me lately and I just don't want to wait any longer. DH said he didn't want to wait any longer either, although he'd have supported me if I really did want to go for the job
Right, i'm going to go and read all five pages (!) so far of this 'group' so I can see what you're all up to!
It's adorable Swan! Love it! If everyone else is ok with it, I'd like to use it.
Welsh_mum2be: Softcups don't hurt at all. I haven't used tampons in years, I don't like the string. I used pads for years. Now I alternate between softcups and pads. If you buy the Instead brand softcups, they are disposable. There are some brands that you wash or rinse out and use over and over again. A couple of the reusable brands I have heard of are Mooncups and the Diva Cup. I never heard of Mooncups until I got on this website, apparently they are in the UK. If you want to just try them out I would suggest getting the disposable ones because if you don't like them you haven't spent a bunch of money. They are a little over $6 per box in the US.
OT, but gasoline is $3.89 here! OMG!!!!!!!! It was already costing me like $55 to fill up my gas tank, I don't even want to know how much it will cost next time! To the other girls in the US, what are the gas prices at where you are?
You can get Mooncups here (in Boots for any UK ladies!)
Fuel is hugely expensive here as well. My car takes about 55 litres and it cost me £75 at the weekend I'm being really economical with my driving. Thankfully we don't use it much as I get the train to work, but it's still a shocker isn't it... So I'm driving slower overall and getting into a higher gear as fast as possible.

Yes, lots of shopping and hopefully no vomiting! Does anyone else eye up prams and pushchairs whilst they're out and about
I am away for 1 day and there is sooo much to catch up on lol! Hello and welcome to all the new people.
Work was ok but I am sooo tired now. Daisy was up at 2:30 for an hout last night but I cant complain because she usually is a really good sleeper.
I didnt have any morning sickness, just needed to pee every 5 mins and my bbs were extremely sore from about 7 weeks until my milk dried up when daisy was 8 weeks old. I loved every part of being pregnant, and had a trouble free pregnancy apart from finding out about the cancer at 36 weeks(but that was tottally unrealated to pregnancy) I was induced 9 days later and had daisy 3 days later. I really missed and craved the rush of going into labour for a long time and really hope that I get to expereience that next time.
I wont be doing alot of shopping as I havent thrown anything out lol - DH is complaining that the loft is too full lol
Wanabemummy - Your wedding sounds like its going to be wonderful! Are you getting nervous now?
wooooooooooooooooooohhhhh well that was a read!
I lost you then i found you all heheh
Yea i get really nervous and excited then all hyper about it, i just read somes sig and it said something about month and 18days TTC and i was like ooo thats soon
Names we have already picked lol if its a little boy will be Caleb Onix and if its a little girl it will be Esmé Ruby, and wannabmum hope whatever you pick works out well for you. how is everyone feeling xx
Whereabouts in the US are you going to be moving, if you don't mind me asking, Poppie?
Oh we aren't actually moving, we're just visiting. My work is sending me to a conference at the end of June in Philadelphia and we'll stay around for a week in NYC after. My husband is also coming with me (he is able to attend the conference for his work too) so we thought we'd make a little holiday out of it as we've never been overseas together (I've only been to New Zealand for work twice) and we would never have had this opportunity to go if it wasn't for my work paying for most of it. So we decided that we would begin out TTC journey while we're over there. You never know, we may conceive while in NYC! 71 days til we fly out!! I'm very excited about the trip and also the beginning of our TTC journey at the same time
A question: What (if anything) have your OH's been doing to get ready for the baby making?? I noticed here in Australia they've just started marketing vitamins for men for pre-conception.
