Just ducking my head in to say hi but I can see that everyone is so busy with children 1 and 2 that there isn't much chat! LOL it just gets that way by this stage huh?

Fingers crossed for this month - having lots of EPS, official testing starts in 2 days - am currently 9dpo.

Hey guys
Just popping in to introduce myself. I'm 26, 2 children (5 & 3 yrs) and after a 18mth wait we have decided to start TTC #3 this cycle. It's still a little strange for us after waiting for so long for the right opportunity, but very exciting also. I didn't know where to post with all these buddy groups so here seemed like a good place to start.
Looking forward to chatting!

I have 2 kids- DD9 & DS6 to a previous relationship,me & DH got married in November then i secured my dream job in December,So it's been a question of yes or no for 2012 & now i am within the last 7 days of the dreaded 2WW & couldn't be any more between excited for a BFP but frustrated & kinda sad knowing we may just get a BFN.
We were TTC for a few months back in 2010 but DH proposed so decided to marry 1st so put it off,DH also works away so we won't be able to cover most months unfortunately :-(
So heres to concieving our Homebirth to be baby  hheart.gif  hheart.gif

Is anyone else in the last week of the 2WW? For the 1st time in my life i am not sure on my O date because my body showed every sign of Oing 7 days before it was meant to (i have 33 day cycles) so if that's right i will get the dreaded AF tomorrow.

huge congrats Tarnsv

Good luck everyone!!

Hey ebonnyjamesGoodluck for a BFP. What's your dream job? If you don't mind me asking.
I am currently 6DPO (If I charted correctly) so can test around Friday/Sat but AF isn't due the 22nd.

Hi ebonnyjames and Amber7!

I'm in the 2ww of TTC #3. I'm 28 and my boys are 3 & 5. This is our first month trying for #3 so I haven't got my hopes up because I'm not sure if our timing was right. DH is optismistic as he insists that we are "super fertile"  laughing2.gif

I had a very vivid dream last night that we had another boy. It felt so real that I still remember the feeling of BF him!

I think I'm around 4DPO so will test on the 19th or 20th

Hi All, I am very new to all this.. smile1.gif

DH and I have decided to TTC for No.3 for me and  No.2 for him.  We both have children from previous relationships and have decided that we would love one of our own.

Between us we have DS 16, DS 14, DS 12, DS 11. (DS 14 is adopted)

We are both 39 and have decided that now is the time.

I have had an Implanon in for nine years and had it removed 4 months ago and cycle kicked in prety much straight away.

Not sure on how this all works so am hoping this is the right Buddy Group.  

Looking forward to chatting :-)



Me - 39
Him - 39

DS - 16
DS - 14
DS - 12
DS - 11

Hi all! I did post a while ago, but as was said earlier -two kids leave less time to post! I think Melodee takes the cake for being busy though, lol!
I'm just about ready to start, might use OPKs this month, but should O next week. My cycle is only 26 days, so I guess my 2ww is a bit short! I'm going through loads of health dramas but just frankly don't care, this is my time to have a baby and I'm not waiting for anyone! DH and I are newly weds too EbonnyJames, with me having two previous children, DD 8 and DS 4.
Good luck Klizanne! 3months makes the odd good. Are you hoping for a boy? Or just curious? I dreamt once many years ago of a baby girl with curly black hair - of all the children in my family she hasn't been born yet - maybe this time?
Amber7 , bright-eyes - any news yet?
Riwimk - waiting for August? I would be going nuts! And now I've scrolled down enough to see my previous post lol!
Ok. Better get out of bed, we are off on holidays tomorrow for the weekend for school holidays. Three nights with a log fire and gorgeous kids, can't wait. but the packing and shopping won't do itself.
Good luck to all of us,
Red

Hey all.

Time sure does fly inbetween posts, Ive been a bit side tracked with school starting back for me and DD (We are in TAS)

How did everyone go with testing?

Goodluck with this cycle redmum77, a short 2ww sounds good, 2 weeks sure goes slow when your waiting (and analyzing possible symptoms on if your successful). Have a wonderful holiday, a log fire sounds devine!

AFM, No news to report. I got a few BFN and then AF showed Thursday, so bring on July. Its my birthday Wed, so I can have myself a couple of drinks and then start off next month with a fresh start and see where it takes us.

xx

Amber7 - aw crappy, but having a drink on your birthday hopefully helped. July will be a good month original.gif .
Our holiday was wonderful, frost and fires! Th kids had a ball, frozen kangaroo poo was a hit rolleyes.gif . Hopefully the good vibes will help conception...
so what are people finding it the hardest to give up? I've stopped the alcohol, and coffee.... Not just for ttc, but for diet/digestion issues too. Two weeks of headaches later and I'm ok now! Just went and got a new herbal tea mug glass thing from T2, and loads of their peppermint tea  biggrin.gif  I think I deserve the best if I can't have wine lol!
We've done with bd this time, now the wait. 12th of July to test... I'm kinda scared I will be now, is that crazy!?!?!
