GOLD!

come on where are all the TTTC peeps?

SILVER! rolleyes.gif

riwymk - Good luck with the job hunting. Sounds like baby might be higher on your priority list. So if it happens, it happens. That would be way more exciting anyway! There will always be later for a job (I am a bit biased, lol). I am a bit the opposite I have studied and worked and waited to TTC#1 so I am definitely ready now to stay home and have babies rolleyes.gif

MrsPoon - any sign of AF? I am waiting for it to show too, hopefully soon so we can get to TTC!

Hi Everyone else I haven't met yet who have been MIA! Come back!

Hi {Jade}  no AF yet! But still have the bloating sad.gif This will be my last cycle before we TTC, so I am eager for AF to come quickly so I can work out my O dates! Usually I am on a 32 day cycle... today is day 33 huh.gif

AFM - have been doing well without caffine for the past 2 weeks! Cutting down a lot of alcohol too. I am also on a diet, hoping to lose around 5 kgs before falling pregnant.

Hi all, DH and I are gearing up for TTC time, so will be moving to the TTC#2 section. Good luck to everyone in here original.gif

#6 {Jade}

Posted 14 July 2012 - 10:15 AM

Good luck MrsS30! Hope its a very short stay there for you. How exciting!!! biggrin.gif

MrsPoon I hope the diet changes are going well - It will all be worth it! I am not much of a caffeine drinker but I could imagine how hard that must be for some people. My only change has been to start taking folate supplements.

Hi can I please join in here? Me and DH won't be TTC#4 until mid Dec of this year. So until then I kinda don't fit any where and I can't find a TTC#4 thread.

#8 riwybo

Posted 17 July 2012 - 09:26 AM

Oops didn't realise a new thread had started lol

Welcome BabyBakeHouse waves.gif I'm don't think there is a TTC#4 thread yet, but you can always message the moderater about one, you definitely won't be the only person TTC'ing #4+ original.gif

{Jade} - Another baby is definitely higher on MY list, but DH really doesn't want another child yet & I don't want to force it onto him. I asked him last night what would his reaction be if I fell pregnant now (implanon out & all, it was a joke I'd be UTD straight away) and he said he would be PO'd because then it will be longer till I get a job (not really I can work while pregnant) So yes.... Just waiting & wishing someone would bloody well hire me already.

MrsPoon - AF??? Good luck giving up caffeine, I couldn't do it. But I only drink 1 or 2 cups a day, A LOT less than I used to lol I'm lucky that while I was pregnant with my boys I didn't want coffee, otherwise I would have struggled so bad giving it up lol Good luck on losing weight, you can do it original.gif

Mrs S30 - YAY. You probably won't see this lol But GOOD LUCK

#9 BabyBakeHouse

Posted 18 July 2012 - 07:12 AM

Thanks riwymk, I will just leave it. I am not really TTC#4 just yet so I will leave it until closer to the time.

My DH was a bit like that. We both have only wanted #4 in the last 8 weeks. But we aren't going to TTC#4 until Dec. (not only to make sure that is the choice we both really want, but to give my body a big enough break).

MrsPoon, Good luck with the no caffeine! That i something I could never do, I need my morning coffee  original.gif Best of luck with that.

Mrs S30, Good Luck with TTC#2. I hope it is a short stay int here for you.

#10 riwybo

Posted 21 July 2012 - 09:43 AM

Hey ladies. DH said last night that he wants to try for a baby now so the kids are close in age & he isn't concerned about me not having a job, I can still work while pregnant & can go back to the same job if they let me once bub is born biggrin.gif

So I am off to the 3rd baby group.

Best of luck to you all.

#11 BabyBakeHouse

Posted 22 July 2012 - 08:54 AM

WOW riwymk, Good luck with TTC#3, I hope it is a smooth and quick road for you.

#12 {Jade}

Posted 22 July 2012 - 04:08 PM

riwymk - exciting!! Good luck - glad your hubby came around original.gif
I too am off to TTC! AF has shown up finally which means this cycle we are going to give it a shot! Here goes nothing. Good luck ladies, babybakehouse, MrsPoon, and others preparing ahead.

Hi everyone I've been AWOL for awhile trying to get stuff done. Just wanted to say we are off to the TTC group as AF has just finished original.gif

Oh and congrats to Cyaira!

#16 ~JLT~

Posted 30 July 2012 - 12:28 AM

Hi girls,

Mind if I join you? DP and I have decided we will start TTC in Jan! Im excited and scared all at once lol. Would love to be able to share this excitement with you all original.gif

#17 MrsPoon

Posted 30 July 2012 - 01:45 AM

All the best Genwhy!
Welcome Tilly's Mummy! Jan will come around real quick! We started planning Dec 2011 and will start TTC next month. The last 7 months have really flown by! I am so excited, can't imagine when we do actually TTC, think I'll be quite obsessed! Lol

#18 ~JLT~

Posted 30 July 2012 - 11:28 AM

Thanks MrsPoon. We are just going to be taking a casual approach. We didn't plan our DD so knowing our luck it will take longer when we are actually TTC lol. My DP would be trying now if he had his way lol. Im happy for a bigger age gap plus Im not looking forward to being pregnant while looking after a toddler :/

#19 ~A2~

Posted 03 August 2012 - 02:43 PM

Hi all

Wow exciting to see some people moving over to the active TTC groups, all the best to you all.

BabyBakeHouse - you are more than welcome to keep posting here and when you get closer to actively TTC'ing for #4 maybe you could pop a post in the Large Families thread and see if others are in the same position.

There is a 'Pregnant with #4,5,6 & 7' thread in there but no TTC one yet.

Regards to all

Ali

Posted 06 August 2012 - 06:23 PM


oh.. ok! good luck SmithiesWife in whatever your plans are!

hahaha  Tilly's Mummy you never know! I think 2-3 years in between is a good age gap...  

AFM - I am literally counting down until we TTC. Am so excited! Been reading 'what to expect when you're expecting' and spying on the TTC #1 thread... very intersting indeed. I gotta learn all the acronyms!  Oh and have signed up to do pilates! (should have started a while ago..) first class tonight! happy.gif

#22 skylia

Posted 06 August 2012 - 06:40 PM

    Never ever thought I would say this again, but I am really missing being  pregnant.

    With two brand new little nieces and several friends just having their  newborns it has definitely cemented in my mind that I am definitely not  finished expanding my own family.

    After approaching the “what do you think about having one more baby?”  with hubby-to-be last night I was surprised to hear that he wouldn’t mind just  ONE more either. Yay!!

    It’s still early days since our discussion and of course I don’t want to  rush into anything but it looks like we are now officially TTTC#4 (You’re not alone BabyBakeHouse original.gif)

    So….. Am hoping you all wouldn’t mind if I joined your group.

    

#23 ~JLT~

Posted 06 August 2012 - 06:45 PM

I can completely understand MrsPoon! We had planned to start TTC in April 2011 but our DD was born May '11 lol. The counting down was hard but was a surprise when we found out we are already pregnant lol. It's all very exciting so I totally understand the butterflies I bet you've got!
I'm still breast feeding this little munchkin and hope to continue that at least until she is 2.  She's feeding as I type lol. So not sure how we will go TTC while feeding. AF has returned so we will see. DP works away a lot so thats another concern I have is having 2 by myself. He's just been asked to go to China for 6-8 weeks and that worries me just not having a break. We don't have any family here so it's not like mum can drop around to watch DD while I do the groceries or anything :/
Have fun at Pilates! I did it years ago and it's so good! Great for those tummy muscles to get back into shape once bubs arrives!

#24 ~JLT~

Posted 06 August 2012 - 06:48 PM

Ooh welcome skylia I think we posted at the same time lol. Very exciting number 4! I'd love a big family but DP is adamant 2 is enough sad.gif

#25 skylia

Posted 06 August 2012 - 07:18 PM

thanks Tilly's mummy.

believe it or not my hubby-to-be was also always adamant that 2 was enough LOL

"one of each and thats it" he use to say hehe...

three boys later and he has now agreed to go ONCE more haha...

think we are both secretly hoping we will finally strike it PINK last time around original.gif

actually have just stumbled across the Gender Swayers thread on here, might try my luck and do some research this time in preparation. got nothing to lose!
