TTC Journal: Krissy and Jared
All right, let's start with the basics. I'm Krissy and I'm 25 years old. My husband's name is Jared and he's 26. I am a second year special education teacher, and Jared is involved in music production with various companies and universities. We got married when I was 17 and Jared was 18. We've known each other since 6th grade, and dated all throughout school. We live in Oak Park, IL, and its great (minus the money hungry town council).
We have talked about having children forever, but we both wanted to be out of college and financially established before we started trying. Since 1998, I have been on and off various birth controls--the pill, the patch, condoms. Most recently I started BCPs (March) and went off them in late December. Right now, we aren't too stressed, and we're having fun with it. My family has a history of being pretty fertile (I have over 25 cousins) so we're just trying to relax and hope.
The way we've worked it is that I'm probably going to ovulate sometime within the next 4 days, and we've been doing the BD since CD 5, and are probably going to continue through the month (we like each other, what can I say? :) ) CM seems on par for optimal babymaking, so we're just trying to let nature take its course. I haven't been doing BBTs because I can't seem to find the thermometer, and my cycle has always been regular and 28 days long, so my OB-GYN said to just let it happen.
