    Jessica - that makes a lot of sense. I hope you're able to get pregnant quickly and your FH doesn't have a recurrence.

    We do a bunch of secular Easter stuff. DH had the brilliant idea last year to fill our Easter eggs with healthy goodies. The boys were actually overjoyed to find things like nuts and blackberries inside them. I guess it's probably one of those things you have to start early. It's been unseasonably warm here, too. We had the baby pool out in the backyard all week!

    AFM: what is it about gearing up to O that sends baby fever through the roof? It doesn't help that it was 5 years ago today that we conceived DS1. I can't believe it's been that long already!
    big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
    middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo
    baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
    8.16.12 & 12.16.12

    TTA, but would welcome a surprise

    Jessica - What a challenge for you and DF to face! I hope you guys get preggo soon. My mom had a transplant for liver cancer last year and thankfully all went well but cancer is so amazingly life changing. I hope all of DFs treatment goes smoothly and productively as possible!

    Mel - We're having good weather too (in NH). Our families are Christian so they'll celebrate that way. I am not but I am religious so I do more of a spring celebration. For DD, we'll do a basket with some spring themed things. When she's older I really want to give her seeds to plant each year or something cute like that.
    I love the idea of seeds! Might have to steal that one!

    Good idea on the healthier eggs. Maybe I'll try some of that this year. Unfortunately, DS is highly allergic to nuts. He loves raisins though, that might work!

    Jessica- I hope the next 3 years go quickly in the aspect of cancer free. Cancer affects way too many people!

    I live in So Cal so the weather is typical, been varying between 65-80- spring time is for sure here. Waiting for the really warm weather but that means I need to get back to the gym. We are not religious but we will do the easter dinner and easter basket this year for DS. he was really too little last year for any real easter basket. I dont know if he would get easter egg hunting this year but I am sure next year will be better for that. Seriously though TTC has engulfed my brain. I have my annual appointment tomorrow. I am somewhat considered not refilling my BC. my cycles are soooo sporadic maybe I can get DH to see what happens- doubtful but I will be bringing it up. but kinda annoyed with DH right now regarding DS's sleeping situation so gotta get that resolved first. lol!

    I love the idea of helathy stuff! DD doesn't like sweets much but loves fruit so I was thinking of doing something along those lines. It's not like I'll never let her have chocolate/candy but why not encourage good habits.

    I so know what you mean about getting close to O and wanting to BD like crazy. It always happens to me.

    We don't really celebrate Easter. I'm sure when we have kids we will. I say that, but actually last year MIL invited us over to color eggs. Yep some 30 year olds coloring eggs. It was silly. She's desperate for a grandchild.

    Yep when I get close to O I get super baby fever. Well the truth is I have it all the time.

    Sorry I haven't been on much, March is always a crazy month. Today is actually my 31st birthday. DH and I went out with friends last night and today we are having lunch with my family. I am also planning a sprinkle (2nd baby shower) for my friend. The sprinkle is next weekend and we are going to a tea room. I've never been to one, so I'm excited.

    So there are a few people getting close to TTC. I'm curious what board will you move to?

    Sara-did you get your BC refilled? It would be fun to move to a new board with some familiar faces

    Happy Birthday!!!!! Hope you are having a great day! A second baby sprinkle sounds like fun! Wish I'd had one with #2. It would have been nice to celebrate with some girlfriends.

    I'm not close to TTC, but thought I'd answer anyway....I tend to lurk until I get that BFP. I'm not one to go from birth board to birth board each month, just not my thing. The TTC boards are nice to hang out on though!

    Ugh Yes I refilled it. And to make matters worse, I switched my Rx to Target and they gave me 3 months of it all at once. Like really? I dont think we are even close to board hopping or TTC. So I will be sticking around for a bit.
    Happy Birthday! I just turned 31 last month. Have fun at the Tea Room, never been either but sounds like fun!

    Oh yeah, our kids get candy. Bust since they love fruit and stuff I figure why not fill the Easter eggs with healthy stuff? That way I can let them gorge themselves on it if they want and not have to worry (too much) about then getting sick.

    I don't think we're too close to TTC (but who knows). I joined BBs while TTC before and we get pregnant pretty quickly, so I might again. Or I might just lurk. there's a grads board (planning a family grads) with a bunch of nice ladies who graduated from TOC at the same time about 2 years ago if you need another place to hang out once you start TTC.

    Yeah I lurk in the TTC boards and recently noticed that people board hop as well. I don't think board hopping will be for me, I can see me getting attached to a month and being bummed when it turned out to not be my month. I think it would make me more crazy about the timing of it all.

    My birthday has been nice! Dh got me a cast iron tea pot, loose leaf teas, and cute little tea cups. We don't usually buy presents for each other (just outings...dinner, concerts, vacations). But it was nice to actually open something this year! I actually cried...AF is on her way.

    Sorry Sara to hear about the BC. Maybe in another 3 months?

    Ohh you got a tea set just in time for your Tea Room Sprinkle. Fun!!!
    I dont board hop either. I do lurk all over the place though. It seems like the boards have slowed down a great deal from when I joined till now. So WHEN I get DH on Board will likely stay here until BFP. I too get attached especially when TTC and I dont want to jinx anything.3 months? Thats so far away.... DS will be 2 right after that.
