aaaw dragonhawk... I bet you just wanted to run away with her and take her home with you!!! Bless...

tequila, BCP = birth control pill, NTNP = not trying, not preventing, OPK = ovulation predictor kit.

Tequila, I have to agree with you, in my opinion, stopping using protection is TTC, but you'll soon get used to the feeling on here that unless you are charting, temping, OPK, fertility monitor, etc you aren't really trying!!!! Personally I'm trying not to let myself get into that mind set (no offence to those that do!!!!) at the moment... I mean away from here, in the real world very few people go down that route unless they aren't having any luck conceiving... so I'd rather wait and keep it more relaxed for the time being... and only go down that road if necessary... But yeah, if you just try and conceive the regular way most people on here consider you to be NTNP rather than TTC!
I'm not really doing that much while WTT, lol, I'm taking my FA and vitamins but alhtough I need to loose weight, I'm having no luck, hmmm... other than that... nope, just waiting!!!! I'm staying on the pill right until more or less the time I want to get pregnant - so middle of July... I was advised to do this by my nurse as sooo many people conceive very quickly after finishing the pill... there is also research that suggests that fertility is very high for a few months after finsihing the pill - So I'm hoping this will be the case with me!!!!

Hi Ladies.

I'm 30, OH is 28. We have 1 DD who is 13weeks old tomorrow and are WTT#2 August 2010. Hopefully we can make a baby boy!

We started TTC#1 when I was 29yrs+3mnths after I realised I would not have children in my 20's. On my 30th Birthday I was 38weeks pg!! At the time OH had just lost his job and we realised that if we waited to sort out a house and career's I would be at least 35 when we started TTC. My job was very secure and we have a council flat in a very nice area of town and decided that our circumstances where good enough and it would be better to have our family now and achieve the other stuff together.

We are currently NTNP, but I'm almost exclusively BFing DD, so no AF yet. Also with a 13 week old we are not trying very hard to need to prevent iykwim!

Morning ladies!

Tequila - I'm trying to lose weight (for wedding and then TTC) and have a bottle of folic acid tablets staring at me at home which I will start taking soon.

I rarely, rarely drink alcohol and I don't smoke. But I do drink a lot of Pepsi Max and I know it is advised to cut down and not have a lot of caffeine (I don't drink tea or coffee - Pepsi max is my big vice but drink water otherwise). So my aim over the next few months is to reduce the amount of Pepsi Max I drink so when the time comes, I don't find it really hard to stop drinking the stuff completely!

I've started a WTT journal on here as well for my random thoughts so feel free to read and comment!

I do agree that by not using any contraception we are TTC... Just seems like I'm not doing as much as the others in the TTC thread... just taking vitamins and doing...it! Also, I think DH is thinking about it as NTNP, but I'm TTC hehe
Have a great day ladies!

That's the best way to do it. When we were TTC #1 I never told OH I was fertile, it could have caused performance anxiety!!

I'm not worrying about whether we'll have problems conceiving until it (hopefully NOT) arises! Everyone I know that's fallen pregnant has either had an accident, or fell on their first month of trying...

Ooh lots of new OAPs Yay
Hello everyone

Janna - I'm similar to you, I'm off the pill now and have just had my first AF so it's full steam ahead I obviously have an idea when I'm ovulating but DH is clueless and I'd prefer to keep it that way

Yeah, I think there are some things that DH just doesn't need to know (at least for right now... if we have trouble conceiving, then it may be a different story)!

Pumpkim - how long did it take for your first cycle after going off the pill?

thanks


Morning all

Thanks for that advice. I feel quite silly asking so many questions, but thanks so much for the answers. Ill catch up eventually and will be using the acronyms myself!

I realise now, having read some of the other threads on this forum, that just having sex and not using contraception, is not considered trying! LOL. And that in saying "are you having unprotected sex" made me sound a bit like Jeremy Kyle!!

Im wondering whether coming off the pill was the right thing, first of all, Im already in pain (so I guess something down there must be working!) and last night had the tell tale night sweats which I havent had in years due to the BCP. Oh well. Guess I have to get used to it!

My cycle was quite regular before the pill, but I remember the last time I came off it - years ago, I was a bit messed up, so I think I need to spend the next 3 months sorting out my cycle so that I actually will have some idea of when I am pregnant!

Anyway, once again, thanks for the advice. This is a nice place to be and Im looking forward to sharing this journey with you all!

Right, really should finish getting ready for work!

To be honest, I've told DH that we'll be NTNP, but in my head it's the beginnings of TTC.

Had my last ever BCP this morning. The cardboard box went in the recycling bin. Somewhat excited about this. Particularly as with having my docs appointment on Saturday and DH going away to Europe for next week, (potentially TMI, sorry) DTD is something that I feel the need to do, when he's returned. It's a kind of, welcome home, as it were.

I suspect that for my sanity I will not be moving over to TCC because that's more likely to stress me out. So sorry girls, I'm staying here, unless I get chucked out. (It's rather intense on the 'dark' side.)
