Here's our new thread. :)

TTCers

Actively Trying:

onthelanai

Name: Ashley
DH Name: Miles
How Long You've been TTC: Over a year and a half
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): We are pursuing a lap for suspected endomtriosis that could be causing my ovulation defect, progesterone issue and all around fertility.
Im taking my prenatals, B6, baby aspirin, EPO, and robutussin, royal jelly, dhea, CoQ10. I am trying to get him to do his fertilaid, but yeah...lol he just doesnt remember to. We both want a little girl even though Ive always wanted a boy first...but in all honesty we would love twins(I want boy/girl of course, but he wants non-identical twin girls one with blonde hair and one with brown) We are going to be naming our first daughter Eliana, and our first son Broderick, and after that we like the names Arabella and Braydon.

babydust2me


Name: Cassidy
DH Name: Cory
How Long You've been TTC: This is month 24
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): Here's our basic story. We started trying in October of 2008 right around our 2 year wedding anniversary. After a year of TTC, I saw my OB-GYN who sent DH for his SA. It took DH until March of this year to finally get around to doing it and everything is great with him. The next step for us is to get me an HSG. I was originally scheduled to do it in April, but about fell out of my chair when I found out my share of the HSG would be $700. I felt like it was too much money to spend when it's pretty likely that I have no problems and my tubes are clear. So we've pretty much just been taking the natural if it happens it happens route these days. I do still plan on having the HSG done, but I'm hoping in the meantime I'll get pregnant and won't need it.

DH Name: Jared

Coreena

Name: Coreena
DH Name: Max
How Long You've been TTC: Began July 4, 2006. Took a break for nine months starting February 2008 when we lost our 8 week old nephew to SIDS. Did a round of Clomid 12/08 then on a break starting 01/09 when my husband lost his job. Still on a break due to my struggling to control my disease. Can start again in January!
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): I was d/x with Celiac Disease as an infant along with my twin sister. It's an auto immune disease of the intestines from the protein found in wheat, rye and barley (and any varients of those). It makes it so that your body can't absord nutrients from the food you eat so your body basically begins to shut down certain functions. We didn't know all of this growing up so I've been struggling since early this year to learn how to control it and eat properly with the limitations. There is a 6 month minimum after going gluten-free that it takes your body to heal and my 6 month mark from going completely gluten-free with no relapses is January! I have started ovulating (something I've never done before, even on Clomid) and have regular (26-30 day) cycles instead of 6+ month long cycles! DH and I both want a little girl and to name her Lydia.

IamSquishy:

Name: Kristen
DH Name: Jake (John)
How Long You've been TTC: 8 months, but on a break over a year, hopefully we'll start again April of next year.
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first.): Well I want a girl first, and DH wants a boy first. Baby name wise, the boy will be a III, so the names set, but if we have a girl he wants Eliana, and I love Lielianna. (Lillianna) We've already talked about twin possibilities, because they run in my family heavily, so we'll name the girls both names if we end up with two, and Dorian will be our second boy name, but that's subject to change. I'm looking into prenatals to start taking again, and other than that I guess I'm just overall baby crazy.

Hi ladies. Anyone that wants to know a little of what I've been going through, feel free to PM me, but I don't feel comfortable posting it on a public forum.

Also If any of you are lurking, but not posting, please respond, just so I can clean up our first post.

I think there are a lot of none active names, but I don't want to remove someone simply because they needed a little time away, like myself...

DH will be home SOON. So I'm really excited about that.

I read your blog Ashley, and I'm super excited for you... and I can't believe I missed you started TTC Brittany. I put two months down under your TTC time when I switched you to Actively trying... I think it's right, or is it three?

Anyway hope you ladies are doing well.

Squish, I'll PM you in a bit. Or you can feel free to PM me if you ever need anyone just to vent to. I know sometimes it can be easier to talk to someone who doesn't have a personal stake in the situation.

This is my 3rd months TTC, started in December. And I suppose under things I'm doing I'd put Prenatals and 1000mg EPO.

That's so exciting that your hubby will be home soon! I bet your tickled to death!! I'm glad you've been stopping by recently. :) Hopefully this thread gets going again.

Yes, everyone else who's involved in this thread COME DROP A LINE!!

<b>BTW</b> this post just turned me into a girlfriend on this site! LOL

Yeah I am tickled to death, this deployment has gone by pretty fast for me, but I'm ready for it to be over, I CAN'T wait for him to be home.

We're also planning a cruise around the islands, we were thinking of going to Vegas, but I think the cruise would be better for this particular trip. (More us time, and relaxation after his deployment.)

We're debating after all that's happened if we want to TTC just yet. We might go ahead and wait until we get our orders and know where we'll be next, and it'll give us a bit more time to save our money, and travel some.

I still ache for a baby, and found out one of my best friends is PG, it was an accident, and she's in shock, but she'll make a great mom.

Just pulls at my heart strings a little.

I really want a baby, but I have pretty bad ptsd at this point, and I think DH and I just need some time to ourselves, and I need a bit more healing time altogether. I'm still going to come around, and I'll surely let you beautiful ladies know when we decide if we're going to ttc or not. It's definatly a discussion to have after he's home though, and not before. :)

I needed to update to your new user name anyway, I didn't even realize you had changed it. :lol:

I was so used to your blog name.

I did some research on the cruise, and there are quite a few little addons the cruise tells you in the fine print... so we might just end up going to Vegas... it'll probably be cheaper even with the airfare.

It's about $1300 per person to go on the cruise, plus several hundred dollars more for shore excursions, and other extras. (Like if you want to drink soda of any kind, it's extra. $12 a night added at the end for a cleaning service, 18% gratuity added if you drink at all.)

VS $700 per person for airfare to Vegas, and then about $50 a night for the room. And then several hundred dollars for whatever we want to do while we're there.

I really like the idea of just being relaxed and just being with my DH, but really Vegas just makes more sense money wise... Perhaps I can book us a spa package or something while we're there... I don't know I'll look into it.

Other than that not a lot going on. I might be getting a new car and selling my current one. Just waiting to see if I get approved for the loan, I should know today. (At a normal hour of course... since it's 2am right now. Ha.)

I'll let you guys know more once I know for sure, but I'm pretty excited. :)

<B>Squishy</b>Vegas can definitely be fun! Sounds like a good time. And it does sound like it makes a lot more sense, financially. Either way, I'm sure you and hubby will have a great time. :mrgreen:

<b>Ashlee</b> Well I think it's awesome that you're going straight for it! But I think you're right, this month is gonna be a good one. :) Hopefully the femara is your miracle drug and you won't even need to do the Lap!

We sort of let it drop off around the holidays, but we're back again, the few of us left that havn't gotten our BFPs that is.

Lots of :babydustb: :babydustg: to both of you.
