In my mind NTNP is the complete absence of any knowledge of your current fertility and no extra sex. If your TTC you can follow your fertility without anything too fancy. When I was TTC#1 I just checked my cm every day and had lots more sex than usual. TTC could be as simple as knowing your cycles are about a month, its a week since your period finished and going at it like rabbits for a couple of weeks.

Atm we are NTNP, I have no idea when I will be fertile (in fairness thats cos I'm BFing) and we are not having sex any more than usual.

Yay....
Well, I have had my last pill. Obviously nothing strange happening, particularly as AF hit at the weekend, but stopped yesterday which was far too short for me.

We'll wait and see what happens, not thinking about it too much, to be honest, just because DH and I are in a really happy place right now, and I don't want anything to change that.

Oh well, he's off to Europe next week and then there's a dance competition, so we'll see how things pan out.

hi. Im Donna and im 28. my OH is Sean and hes 32. he has 1 son(9) and one step son(14) from a previous relationship, i have one son(8) from a previous relationship and we have a daughter together who is 3 weeks old.
In an ideal world id love to start trying again asap but i had quite a few probs when i was pregnant with Olivia (i had bad spd and had to walk with crutches. i had carpal tunnel syndrome which still hasnt totally gone and i had to be induced due to pre eclampsia) so we need to take all of that into account before we start trying again. we have decided that it would be best to wait untill ollie is about ready to start nursery in 3 years. i know thats the sensible thing to do but it seems like such a long time lol xx

My DH and I will be trying in September...I can't wait....it will be here soon!! My only thing with having another baby is that I worry about Rian. Everyone dotes over her sooooo much. I hope she adjusts well to the baby. I worry too about my Diabetes. My DH and I are going to a family planner at the IWK Children's hospital in August to make sure my A1C is good before we start to try. I miscarried our first baby and it was so hard on us. Getting pregnant with Rian was really the only thing that helped me "get over" our loss....I can't imagine going through it again. We went to UC Baby to find out what we are having with Rian...this time around we will be able to find out through the Children's hospital as they will tell you the sex...at our hospital here..they don't tell. It would be nice to have a boy but wee just want a healthy baby..besides I have sooo much girly stuff!! Anyone else going to be trying in September? Good luck to all the TTCers!

Hi and welcome to happygal and Dee_H!!!! I have added you both to the front.
happygal, sounds like you had a hard time with your last pregnancy so it does seem like the sensible decision to wait a bit... but I'm sure it'll be here in no time... how brave of you to want to do it all again already though after the problems you had!!!!
Dee_H, so sorry to hear about your miscariage it sounds like you are doing all you can to ensure it doesn't happen again though so try not to worry too much. And I'm sure your LO will cope fine with the new arrival she'll probbaly be so proud and protective of the new baby herself - most 2 year old girls seem to have that attitude towards new brother or sisters! Must be early signs of motherly instinct!!!
So dragonhawk, are you still waiting to August to try then?!?! Or will you try earlier if you're happy with your cycles and stuff? Oooh, it's so exciting - getting very close now for some of us!!! Make sure everyone still pops by here when TTC and to let us hear the good news!!!!

My journal is just me letting the thoughts in my head out in a place where others do the same! Nothing exciting at the moment! As far as WTT goes, the same few thoughts and ideas are constantly in my head!!

I think I might break open my bottle of folic acid later and start taking one with dinner every evening. I'm about at the 3 month mark before TTC if everything else goes to plan!

Does anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend (although I know it is only Thursday!)? I'm having a very quiet and dull one - I'll be studying!

Hello everyone and a big HI to the new girls!! Dragonhawk - that's exciting that you took your last pill and sounds like you've got lots going on to keep you busy till you start ttc (or officially ttc I guess!)

Not been on in a few days, but some good things this week:
1. I've been for my second blood test so if they confirm an underactive thyroid I should treatment for that next week - hurrah!

2. I got my first positive OPK today!!!!!! I actually got the positive in the morning and when I tested after work, it was a bit lighter, so thanks to all the advice I got here, I never would have thought to test in the morning otherwise and looks like I'd been missing the surge the last two months! Hurray!!

I've going out with some friends this weekend to celebrate the big 3-0 (not 30 until June 20th but we'll be in Canada then so going out with friends here this weekend!) We have an indoor ski slope in Manchester so we're going tubing (like sledging) and then out for food and drinks! hurray!

Anyone else up to anything? Good luck with your studying Lou!!

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!
LOL!!! I'm just reading back through some of the posts I've missed - I'm a total Pepsi Max addict, too!! Desperately trying to cut down but not doing so well, especially as the Spar by my work has them 2 for the price of 1!!

I was on Cerazette for about 4 years and never had AF, came off it in May and had first AF 23 days later. I've been on and off the pill a few times since I was 16 and have always gone straight back to regular cycles, I'm hoping this time is the same
