I know there are TTCers out there. Where is everyone? Anyone have ideas on how to get this board more active. It's a great home base for TTCers to chat and keep up with each other. That way you don't have to board hop from month to month.
I think most are board hopping, but aslso it seems in gerneral everywhere is slower. I may be joing up in a bit
I'm still here. I'm just lurking more than posting right now since we're still on a forced TTC break until next cycle and I've got a good three weeks to go still. I'm not going anywhere though except hopefully to a BB with my next cycle.
I will join in! My name is Elizabeth and I'm TTC #1. DH and I are 31 and we've been JLIH for 3 months and nothing, so this time we are doing opks. I've been hanging out on the TOC board because I've been wanting and waiting for a long while now. But since I'm actually trying, I figure I should join here too! Looking forward to chatting. I lurk on the birth boards too, but I'm finding it difficult to join in since people are split between months due to where they are in their cycle.
Anna, I see you are in Texas! I'm a Texan too, where do you live? I'm in Dallas.
Wendy-Hello there, hope you join soon and we can share a birth board!
Leah-I hope the next cycle is your lucky cycle! I've seen you on the birth boards and I know you have been trying awhile. I really hope you get your BFP soon! I'm routing for you!
I haven't been posting as much because we're almost at the one year mark of TTC #2. I've been following along with an ever shrinking group on the BBs. I'd prefer to post here though!
We're hoping to add to our family, but aren't extremely hopeful because I have diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) and it took quite a bit over a three year period to get pg with DS #1. We hit the jackpot with a last ditch injectable IUI cycle after two failed IVF cycles. I don't have the emotional energy and we don't have the money to pursue expensive fertility treatments again. So, we're trying naturally with temping and opks. AF should be here any minute now.
I'm still lurking around, and have been board hopping on the BB's as well.
This cycle seems to be a bust for us (AF should be here Weds/Thurs), so we're trying again in June. This past month was just a bit to stressful & hectic for us to have much energy to put into TTC.
I bought a pack of OPK's, but I'm wondering how we're going to make it work......we haven't told our family that we're TTC'ing, but the week/weekend that I *should* be O'ing, we're on a big family camping trip. Might be hard to explain why I'm taking test strips to the bathroom with me.....
After taking a short but much needed break, I am still here too! I have been BB hopping but really if we could get this forum to pick up I would much rather stay here.
Elizabeth - Hi! How exciting that you and DH decided to make the leap from TOC to TTC. I hope it happens quickly for you!
Beth - I'm truly sorry about the 1 year mark. It hurts, I know. I will be hoping and praying that you will be able to conceive on your own soon without medical intervention.
Jo - Good luck this month! (and hide the test strips in your pants lol!)
Hi Elizabeth! I'm in San Angelo (south of Abilene). Texas is so big that even if I find people on here from Texas they are never close enough to get together IRL.
We are currently on the fence about whether or not to TTC #3. If we do it'll be at least a year away since we just had #2 less than 2 months ago. I go through moments of thinking #3 is definitely in the cards and then I have days like today where I feel like 2 is plenty and with our former infertility I should just be grateful for the 2 I have. Of course, hanging out on this site is bound to induce serious baby fever as DS gets older.
