Something bad to share: My DH goes from being all for getting pregnant to not wanting it at all... this will be our 1st together and i think the thought of having a new born around scares the crap out of him.... so im kinda afraid if i do get pregnant it will be one of the times hes "not" ready

Something indifferent or random: I HATE my periods... as i have never had cramps or anything in my life caused from AF but now that i am on Metforimn I have cramps and bloat and all kinds of stuff and it sucks

TTC Cycle #: 1

Other Kids/Furbabies: No kids, just furbabies. Molly (Bichon) and Thor (Schnorkie)

Something good to share: The lack of BC in my system has left me friskier than expected. :woohoo:

Something bad to share:
I barely had AF show up last week so I am not confident that I am going to O this first cycle. I have figured out that I was anemic due to over-doing eating healthy last month. :confused:

Something indifferent or random:
I have recently started making my own greeting cards! I am a novice scrapbooker but really enjoy making cards. I am little overwhelmed with June because of all the birthday's and Father's Day, though. :bonkself:

DH/SO Name/Age: Brent, 27

TTC Cycle #: I'm still on Cycle #49 but I've started spotting today, which means I'm out, so I'm waiting for AF (she should be here by Sunday) -- then it's onto Cycle #50. :confused:

Other Kids/Furbabies: We have all rescued furbabies and love them so much!! We have a 5 year old black/white blue-eyed Siberian Husky named Kody, a 4 year old pocket beagle named Fenway, a 3 year old tortoise-shell cat named Raja and a 2 year old silver tabby/bengal mix named Nala. We also have a 70 gallon aquarium with tropical fish.

Something good to share: We're finally getting some nice weather here. It's been very hot and humid and I love this type of weather. We're in the process of cleaning up the backyard right now and getting it ready for our gazebo!! Biggrin

Something bad to share: We're onto Cycle #50!! That's horrible!!! :confused:

Something indifferent or random: I'm getting a tattoo on Saturday! Actually, it's a continuation of one that wasn't finished from 5 years ago. My little sister & I got tattoos done while in Wasaga Beach one summer and we got "sisters" in Kanji tattooed on us -- I have one half that says "Big Sister" and she has the other half that says, "Little Sister". We wanted to add butterflies to it but at the time the artist didn't have the proper needles for it, so we just had the symbols done. So, this Saturday, we're finally getting them finished. I can't wait. I'll show pictures when it's finished Biggrin

DH/SO Name/Age: Nathan 34

TTC Cycle #: 4 or 5 since it's been official, before we were JLIH.

Other Kids/Furbabies: Kids: Hailey (6), Sascha (3) -- Dogs: Cody (3), Thelma (3), Cat: Pookie (16), Sugar Gliders: Zan (1) and Dargo (11 months) - Hamster: Zetti II (He's a baby, just got him today) - Birds: Loki (6 months) Quico (3) -- and I have fish too LOL Aren't you glad you asked?

Something good to share: My girls had a great time at the beach today

Something bad to share: Zetti (the original hamster) died yesterday Sad It was horribly sad and I just couldn't tell my girls so we got a doppelganger today. Thankfully we were able to sneak him in before they noticed. I figure I will just tell her he exercised a lot and lost weight if they notice Zetti II is smaller.

Something indifferent or random: I have no idea what to get Sascha for her birthday this year. Isn't that horrible? I'm with my girls all day, I know what they like, but she hasn't really asked for anything specific and it's driving me insane!

I hope you don't mind me joining in, I just had a M/C and the doctor told me to start trying again once I had a normal period. So, I'm out for March, but no one's hanging around April yet.

DH/SO Name/Age: Trevor/27

TTC Cycle #: hmm.. I guess one? If you count M/C, it would be #6.

Other Kids/Furbabies: Aidan/4.5, Ainsley/11.5 months

Something good to share: It's finally getting warm here.

Something bad to share: I'm dealing with the whole m/c situation and I've got some horrible tooth pain. I was supposed to get a root canal, but now I'm leaning towards just getting it extracted.

Something indifferent or random: I'm way overzealous about planning my DD's birthday right now. I think it just gives me something positive to focus on.

i'll bet they have been.

you know what i hate about this whole series? it's the stanley cup, right? you would think they would be interested in high ratings given that one of the largest "sports towns" in the country has a team in it (and hasn't had a team in it in, like, 30 years or something), so you would think they would be broadcasting these games on every channel available on the east coast. but, they are only broadcasting the games on a station called "versus", which is a premium channel out here. so, in order to watch the Bruins, we have to upgrade our cable, which will cost another $20 per month. most counter-intuitive piece of marketing i've ever seen. fire the guy who had this idea. seriously. brilliant.

Are you serious?!? That would drive me crazy. We actually have it broadcasted on CBC, which is the national public Canadian station. We've actually been watching the games online (on cbc.ca) and using our projector to display them on the wall.

Ok.. I'll quit hijacking the check in thread with hockey.. lol
