*waves* Hi! I'm new (again).

Hi ladies. I was a member here way back when. I'll give y'all a quick intro and then if there's anything anyone wants to know, just ask. I'm usually an open book.

My name is Alyssa. I'm 26 (I'll be 27 just before Christmas) and have been married for 6.5 years. Hubby and I tried for a while after we first got married, but then we moved back in with my parents and were asked to not have babies while here. I think my Mom was soured on it because my brother and his wife has just moved out and she had been taking care of their baby all the time. So, we respected her wishes.

We've had our ups and downs, as most couples do, but the day after our anniversary this year we had a large breakthrough and realized we were more like roommates than a married couple and that we should fix that before we decided to have kids, or even stay together. It's been 5 months now and things are going great.

This past week, in a hormonal PMS fit I bawled my eyes out for an hour without being able to speak. When I finally did, I told DH that I was afraid I'd never get to be a mom. That's been pretty much all I've wanted since I was little. So, he told me that he thought we were ready. We still live with my parents, but our business (we are starting a graphic design business together) is starting to take off, and we are more like housemates with my parents. They are now assured that if we have kids while still here, we will be the ones caring for the kids. Also, we are helping them out with home repairs and stuff. If they make us leave to have kids, they'll lose that. lol.

So, DH and I talked it over and decided that this cycle will officially be our TTC cycle #1. I'm all ready to chart my BBT and I am so excited to really start in on this journey.

So, that's the very basics about my TTC...I guess that doesn't really tell y'all much about ME as a person, though...lol. Like I said, just ask things. Biggrin

ETA: Holy moly. I just saw my signature. It's from 2008. I guess I should change that. lol

Thank you both. Even thought it's been years, I feel like this place is welcoming and wonderful. I went to a couple of websites with more active boards and did not like what I saw. So, pg.org is where I will stay. A slower board is easier for me to keep up with anyway.

Welcome back Biggrin
I'd say this is the best site. Everyone is so helpful and active threads are good.
Is anyone on any other sites?

When I was pregnant with my daughter I browsed a couple others but they all had so many people in them that I didn't like them. I'd rather have a slow board with a few people who actually get to know each other.

Welcome! I'm new here too, though I've been on pg.org for about 7 years, I haven't been on this board! I should probably introduce myself... haha

Yes, a small group is good so we can all become friends and not just generically congratulate and console random screennames we can't remember. And thank you Misty. There was a time when I worried we'd never get here, but I'm glad we took the time to do things right.

ETA: HI! I assume you're the Jordan of Jordan and Jesse? Welcome to you as well. ^_^

DH used to, but he definitely learned over the last 7 years how to comfort me. But, sometimes you just need other ladies who know what you're going through. I hope your stay here is short and sweet. Smile
