Lurking around

I have been a little away from the boards lately but I am trying to come back and say Hi more. Work has been so extemely busy and stressful. I of course take on more than I should, and often more than anyone else is willing to. I also got suckered into Fifty Shades of Grey- so I finished the last book tonight, so now I can go to sleep before 1 am and say HI again! hehe! Still not much here on the TTC thoughts. I did get my Cheri Prediction yesterday. She said for me a Girl and the month of September. The girl part scares me but I have a gut feeling we will have a girl when we do decide to TTC. I am still off BC. Using OPKs for preventing is working well. Thats my boring update!!

Hi Sara!

How's Tommy doing? I was freaked out when we found out Olivia would be a girl but it grew on me and now I wouldn't have it any other way! September sounds like a great month too! Smile

September sounds good, not too far away if thats conception month. A girl kinda freaks me out as well, but hubby is certain next baby will be a girl, hopefully i'll be finding that out in around 40 weeks ( i don't hold much hope of that though but wishful thinking). I hear you on work, i wpent almost two weeks doing my job but parts of my bosses job while she was on holidays

Hi Sara! I'm sorta new here on the TOC board but have been lurking here before I introduced myself so I've seen you post before. But, I don't really remember your story. Are you ready to TTC and trying to convince DH or just thinking of TTC but not sure if you are ready?

LOL on staying up to finish your book. I think this is why I don't really read much because I tend to be very all or nothing about stuff. I'm sure I would do that to myself a lot because once I started a book I wouldn't be able to put it down.

Interesting about your prediction. Hope it works out for you! I think what we don't know is always what scares us...the fear of the unknown. Wink

Lynn has it right - we are all scared of what we don't know! that's why Erin's scared of boys and we were scared of girls - you just have no idea what to expect. Frankly, every child is different and that's scary too! What if I get one of those kids who never sleeps at all? Wink

haha i hope next LO he or she likes sleep and eating! One can hope!

Yeah DH is still not really up for talking about TTC. But he does listen to friends about having a 2nd. a good chunk of our friends are done already so he does see the challenges and the good sides of having a 2nd. Tommy loves having his cousin around right now all the time. They get along so well. and he loves babies. We shall see. He will hear more of it tomorrow when we have friends over the the 4th. hehe.
And dont get me started on girls names. That alot freaks me out. I am not in love with anything at all. I have a small girls list but nothing is perfect in my brain LOL! And I would have to deal with pink. I am not a pink person at all! Dont own anything pink. But I feel in my gut it will be a girl, always have. so my thinking is TTC january ish which would be for a Sept baby. ahh we shall see

I agree, September would be a good month for a baby and January to TTC is plenty of time to get your DH on board. Smile
