Okay so the Birth Boards have Spaces and this idea was submitted to have TTC Spaces, so here we go. We'll follow some of the same stipulations as the BB Spaces.
This is a NO REPLY thread. If you have a picture or event you would like comments on, please post a new thread with that information. Take a space and then come back (frequently) and edit it to update it with new information. It can have anything you would like to put in it. Things like, When you started TTC, whether you already have children, how the extended family reacts (if they know) to you TTC.
Pictures are always great. Post pics of your OPK's, HPT's, links to your chart and chart overlays, and of course pics of that elusive BFP, and then a link to your BB Space would be great so we can follow your progress.
This lets everyone else see where you are at a glance.

TTC #3 since January, 2011
DH Trevor, married 08/2005
DS Aidan, 12/31/2006
DD Ainsley, 06/26/2010
I am currently mostly NTNP (not trying, not preventing). My cycle is back despite BFing around the clock. Would love to have a baby (bad baby fever), but I know right now isn't the best time. My husband is in the Air Force and is currently training to be a pilot. He will get his wings at the end of Sept. We have one son, Aiden, who was born November 2nd, 2010. It took us 3 years of no BC to conceive him. Hopefully it won't take another 3 years to have #2!
First PP cycle: June 21st, BFN of course since I had been out of town lol
Second PP cycle: August 3rd, +OPKs 8/20 and 8/21

Karen's TTC Space
My name is Karen. I'm 38, DH is 43. I am Canadian but have been living in Switzerland for nearly 9 years. DH is Swiss. I am an Elementary school teacher in an International School. We were married in August 2008 and started trying for #1 right away.
We got pg quite quickly, but sadly miscarried at 10 wks. After that my cycles were pretty messed up. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in June 2009 and put on meds to control my hypothyroid. 2 months later we learned we were pg again. Our son Joshua was born on May 1st 2010.
Now we're back and trying for #2! I stopped the minipill on June 22nd and am still BFing DS. I started charting to see what was going on. Looks like things are back on track.
Just hoping it doesn't take us a year to get pg again this time! At my age, the clock is ticking pretty loudly!
#1 - June 23rd first day off of minipill. O'd on CD 19. Not trying, Not preventing. Test date July 25th
SURPRISE!!! It's a BFP!!
July 25th - 14 DPO!
Oh. My. Word. We're in shock over here!!
Jean's TTC Space
About UsI'm Jean age 40, DH is Bill age 48. I'm an elementary band and orchestra teacher and DH is in sales. We met a little later in life, and married in June of 2010.
Look closely....we're a mixed marriage. (Yankees-Mets! )
We've been trying unsuccessfully to get pg ever since. We've had 3 CPs, possibly 4, that we know of. Along the way, we've had a ton of tests.
I'm currently taking advantage of the opportunity to drop a few pounds before getting pg (and I could stand to lose more than a few.) 11 so far! Yay! I'm hoping that I'll get to 20 before getting pg.
What's Next for Us?
Cycle #16 - apparently another CP
Cycle #17 - September 2011. IUI #1 - BFN
Cycle #18 - October 2011. IUI #2 -
OMG!!! +HPT on October 28th! Beta coming on 10/31. Stick little bean, stick!!!

Michelle's TTC Space
My name is Michelle and I have been married to my DH for close to two years now. In December 2010 we decided it was the right time to TTC. We would be happy with either a baby boy or girl, as long as he/she is healthy.
Well, DH and I have now been TTC #1 for almost 13 months. We decided more aggressive action was needed if we ever hope to have a baby in our arms. DH went in for a S/A 1/16/2012 and the results came back perfect, which we are absolutely thrilled about! Which brings us to me...I have my first OB/GYN appointment Feb. 2nd to find out what could be causing our infertility and what we can do to conquer it.
1/16/2012 - DH S/A came back perfect
02/02/2012 - First appointment with an OB/GYN endometriosis is suspected but not confirmed. Ultrasound is scheduled for 02/15/2012
Ultrasound and blood work came back perfect. Now left pondering if everything is perfect, why is this taking so long!?!
March 5th - Vaginal Ultrasound to confirm Ovulation
March 13th - First RE appointment

Erin's TTC Space
Hello all!!! I'm Erin (25) and DF is 28. We live in So Cal and I absolutely love it! By trade I am a certified Child Life Specialist and finishing my certification in Infant Massage Education. However, with the economy in California and the low # of jobs available in my field, I'm not practicing at the moment. I will be starting an admin job for a big insurance company in September fulltime. DF is in sales. We have a son , Ethan, who just turned 2 and was a part of the June 09 BB. Since having DS I have had one chemical pregnancy and one miscarraige. The miscarraige is recent, I lost the baby on 6/18/11 at 8 weeks. It was really hard as we saw the heartbeat in the ER on 6/10 (cramping and bleeding) and then again at the OB's office on 6/13. It just wasn't meant to be and I passed all the tissue in the ER the second time on 6/18. Since then, DF and I have talked and we have decided to really try this time (both the previous 2 were unplanned). So here we are!!! I have yet to get AF since the M/C so I'm waiting to get it back so we can try next cycle. We were BD'ing after 2 wks after the M/C so it is always possible that I could be pregnant....waiting a little longer to test. I can't wait to be pregnant!!!!!!!!! This will be our last baby, I only want two and will be happy with either a boy or girl. I will just be ecstatic that it's a healthy baby.

Amber's TTC Space
I'm Amber, 25, DH is Chris, 35. We got married in Dec/06, and waited about a year before TTC. We got pg fairly quickly but unfortunately that pregnancy ended in m/c at 13.5 weeks. The m/c took a long time to work its course, but the first cycle afterwards I got pg again, this time with our son Mason who was born via c-sec April/09. When he was around 6 months we decided to TTC #2, but I was still BFing and hadn't gotten AF back yet so we weren't sure how long it might take. We were a bit surprised when we caught the first egg and a month after we started trying we got a bfp! My VBAC baby Isaac was born Aug/10.
We have been NTNP since Isaac was about 5 months old now, and PPAF showed up in May, on his 9 month birthday to be exact! We started TTC and got pg (while BFing) on PP cycle #4, but unfortunately that ended in m/c at around 7 weeks. After a 41 day cycle AF is back so we are now TTC again, this time Isaac has weaned so hopefully the LP issues I had before the m/c will not be there anymore. This third child will almost definitely be our last, so I am desperately hoping for a girl.
TTC after our miscarriage
Cycle #1 - November 25, 2011 - 28 days - no ovulation charted
Cycle #2 - December 23, 2011 - O'd CD18 - Faint BFP @ 10dpo!
