Jessica (26) - TTC Plans on hold
Losses 13.09.12 & 10.04.13
it's hard for me to format it right but here are my answers
Wendy nearly 28
Ttc number two
Starting next cyckeso in a couple of weeks.
It will be active, I have found charting appears to not be working for me as my DS still wake a lot at night. So i he her had any temp changes, opks were a bit dodgy as well, but they will be what I rely on seeing as I am still breast feeding so my cycles may not be fully settled yet
I love seeing the word pregnant on a digi, but live for internet cheapies
Both, but probably more opks
No, lots of people know I want another soon though but think I am waitinguntilseptember
Not applicable seeing as i'm not yet starting
Being is always work for me, it's not something I really get into and truth be told find it very painful and not all that big a deal
Blue and yellow
Umm all the stuff that's not good for me
I have no real hobbies, i had to give up all my sport and stuff because of hubbys work schedule and having dsso I guess my hobby now is sitting home alone with DS every night doing nothing but fighting him to go to bed.
